Kathy,
I find your disingenuous comment quite interesting… Unfortunately, your educational input was overshadowed by conjecture.

The role of the leasing agent/realtor is understood, even implied, which is why the potential renter often opts to work with such person. There wasn’t a need to offer a skewed description of what you believe to be the nature of the role. This is a given. I appreciate your efforts and time in offering your opinion.

While real estate and home rental may be a private industry, and even lightly regulated… this is NO EXCUSE for any person working in the industry to operate without any ounce of ethic or morale. It was shameful and disgraceful for Elsa (representing Back Office Central, LLC), and ALL involved, with the home owner’s permission, to show 1918 Englewood Way home, in this condition, with hopes of renting the home--knowing there is black mold in the garage. Elsa apologized while entering the property with us, for the unkempt landscaping, the dirty, soiled carpet and garage having a tendency to flood on rainy days. It would have been GREAT if she also disclosed the black mold in the garage will also be “fixed,” instead of waiting for my husband to bring it to her attention first. There was approximately three other families viewing the home, with their small children. Elsa never said a word about the potential hazard.

Based on your post, the practice of showing and renting homes with black mold is something you’re very comfortable with, especially once you qualify the renter as low income.

The reality is, budget has NOTHING to do with utilizing ethics and morale, and just doing the right thing…when deciding to show a home with black mold to unsuspecting, innocent people (potential renters). It doesn’t matter if the home is being offered for fifty cents or $5900.00 per day… sick is sick. Regardless of wealth, each human only has ONE life. This ONE life makes each person equal, leveling the playing (paying) field! NO ONE should be subjected to black mold!

You are in no position to suggest what I can and can’t afford or to offer any advice on anyone’s finances. The amount I CAN afford, will NEVER “afford” my loved ones or myself a dirty, moldy and unhealthy rental home!

Your paragraph number four, was a complete waste of our time (yours and whoever reads it) and brain matter. Instead of posting such foolishness, perhaps you should use the last of your sunset years getting in touch with humanity and reality. Perhaps a Business Ethics class or two, community service, researching the effects of black mold on the human body, donating time to work with those less fortunate than yourself or even just being grateful that you and your loved ones are in good health or that you still have the time and demented mental capacity to waste the time of strangers with your frivolous posts.

To be clear, you are clearly out of touch with reality, perhaps this is the reason you’re retired. Surely, your retirement was a benefit for the industry; since it doesn’t need your help to cast a negative, unethical light on it.

Enjoy your life.

Be prepared to pay extra deposit in case the home owner will consider you because of good income. Why pay over $5000 just to get in for a house rental if I can put you into a program that you will be guaranteed as home owner? Talk me and I will coach you for free in real estate. ... more

I'm not an attorney, so this shouldn't be considered legal advice. Always consult your attorney for legal advice.

Anything left behind on the property, in my humble opinion, now belongs to you... and if you want to have it removed from the property, you should be able to do so. ... more

It's entirely up to the seller, whether they want to pay the buyer's agent commission. They are under zero obligation to pay it.
