Your new broker should be able to assist you in the switch. If they don't want to be bothered then it tells you that you can't count on them.

Not factoring in drive time about 2-3 hours. Also depends on the vender's portal and how user friendly it is. I completed one last month and I had to upload 15 quality photos with it but their system wouldn't allow for multi upload of photos so I sat there uploading 1 at a time and due to photo size each one took 2-3 mins. ... more

Hi Michael,

I would be happy to have a chat with you about some ideas. Niche markets are the key. Perhaps working with investors would be one niche, as well as Condo buyers in a certain complex, etc.

Kind regards,

First, there are no short cuts to success in Real Estate. You can choose to be a listing agent, buyer agent or work both. First you need to promote yourself so people know you are in real estate. Hand written cards to those close to you. A social media presence and start an Active Rain Blog you can promote yourself and tell people what you can offer them. Also write about local events, news and tips to buy or sell. I included a link below that i use. Lastly when you do find clients, offer them great service. ... more

Go interview a few brokerages and ask what they offer and what training. Ask what the split is and find a company you can work with and jump in.
All the best to you.

Personally, I feel like replacing the locks is just a good thing to do to ensure the safety of the new tenant. Then you can be sure that old tenants can't get in the home under any circumstance. This also isn't too difficult of a task to perform, so I think that it should be done anytime someone moves out. You should also probably inform the tenants as they move in that you do this so that they are aware that it has already been done! ... more

I have just started a new business and I need to hire an accountant. I've been looking around trying to find one that will work with me as soon as possible. I have a friend that tried to do his own accounting for his business and it didn't end well. I want to be on top of things and organized. Hopefully me and my future accountant will be able to iron out all the details by next week.

I had a terrible experience with bank of america. Buyers went into contract, removed all contingencies and ready to close. On the 27th day of closing bank of america denied buyers loan due to hoa litigation.They had known about HOA litigation from the very beginning and had given us an OK to proceed. Because the buyers had removed there contingencies, they had to loose there Deposit amount of 20k. So it was an awful experience with bank of america, considering other banks like Chase were lending in the same community. ... more

Call your tenant and ask these questions: Is your mom visiting? After that question is determined,

Do Not Ask If the Dog Is A Service Dog!

If the mom has moved in, remind your tenant that there is a PET RESTRICTION. Only then IF they claim it's a service dog are you able to act, react, or re-write the rental agreement. ... more

The Building Education Center is back and has started offering classes again in August 2013. See the announcement on their new website at .

Apparently they no longer have a permanent location, and classes will be held at various sites.

The old website at is still up but contains old information. I'm sure they'll try to fix that.
