Hi Amy

Thanks for your question.

As long as your Agent is following up, its good. By Email one keeps a record of interest,
seriousness, one also get facts about qualification.

I gather you are providing the Agent with the Buyer Leads.

Good luck.

The rental market here in Cornelius is very strong, and very tight. We are growing by leaps and bounds because we are a small community where people want to be. A rental home that is clean, well maintained, has good storage and a convenient location will rent very quickly. However, todays renters are much like todays buyers: they are educated and they know what they want. If the house is not perfect, or very close, they will turn their noses up at it. The yard must be neat and clean, the house must be immaculate. Dirt and clutter will leave you with a mortgage payment and no tenant to pay it. ... more

To add to Josh's list:
The more letters purchased to appended to ones name impresses me.
And I value highly the agent who uses an image on their advertising that looks like their grand daughter.
And of course, if you have a obsession like pet rescue or critters as members of the family, squeeze them into your picture too. I LOVE hearing about how frighted Fluff was of the thunder that occurs every afternoon in FL.

But what I value MOST, it the agent who listens.

Yes, the first thing you need to do is hire a real estate agent in your area who knows how to BEST market your Home! Your home goes into the MLS,, Trulia, Zillow,, Hotpads, Tour Factory, and and are optimized with up to 36 photos of your home, Search Engine Optimization, long tail and short tail searches, surveys, disclosures, and virtual tours. MLS receives the most exposure, next and down the line are real estate agent's websites and then social media. If you want the most exposure, I would use social media (Craigslist, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc) to help market your home. Print materials and farming materials help market your home as well as virtual tours which are linked to 28 other websites if you do it correctly.

It should be recoreded at the Register of Deeds in the county in which it is located.

So contact the Register of Deeds for the county. They are very helpful and can help you find the documentation.

When they subdivided the land and created the subdivison / PUD (planned unit development) they had to record the documents.

John Siddons & Mike Laine answered:
Closing costs you can save on in a cash deal are minimal and somewhat optional. You do save a loan origination fee and an appraisal is optional (or at your discretion) since there is no bank requiring one. Most of the other costs will remain the same. Attorney hourly fees may be less if there is no necessary communication on funding. ... more

You're not completely out on renting. Shop around and be honest about your situation. So long as you have a positive cash flow and can prove current on rent and bills you may have no issue, but first consult these management companies. ... more
