You need to visit several local brokerages and ask the Office Manager or Broker in Charge to assign you to one of their new licensed agents. Typically agents who just got their license will start with rentals until they get some experience and clients. Then they move up to buyers and sellers.

Unfortunately, most realtors don't work with rentals because the commission earned is too little. Realtors make a lot more money with buyers and sellers.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Are you referring to a lockbox that a realtor placed on the door OR is this a home for sale by owner and the owner has a security device? If it's a realtor's lockbox, then you need to call a realtor to show you the home. Realtors do not give out the codes to their lockboxes. I know there are a few brokerages that you need to sign up with and they allow buyers access to the home without the agent present. You need to Google this. However, the brokerage has their method to screen you first before you can see the home.

If this home is For Sale By Owner, then you need to contact the seller or owner to get access to the code.

Simple cosmetic repairs are always a good idea! Consider inviting a few local agents and ask opinions.

Well just for the simple fact that you have to suggest or even ask the best thing to do just may be be to hire someone however I do know that budgets can be tough right now so another alternative is to halfway do it yourself. So, what I mean by that is hire someone that could set up a nice design that is simple but nice. That way the keep up is easy and you can always call back the person to if you need reinforcement. I actually know a person who could help you plan out something simple so please give me a call 256-701-4266 or visit my webpage at ... more

Don Tepper answered:
3%-4% of the home's value.

It's impossible to quantify--unless you could have comps--similar houses, one with good landscaping, one without. But, just thinking about houses in my area, I'd expect a differential of 3%-4%.

On top of that, the one with better landscaping is likely to sell faster. Some folks will be so turned off by poor curb appeal that they won't even venture into the home. Or, as HomeBuyer suggests, poor curb appeal is likely to suggest that there are other things wrong with the home.

And that's likely the case. Real estate investors often "Drive for Dollars"--driving around neighborhoods looking for properties whose owners are in distress. One of the obvious signals is a poorly maintained lawn and bushes.

Hope that helps.
