Great question...
1) According to the research, many buyers start their search for property online... So your property will need to have a strong showing on the web AND reach the right audience.
2) List with a local REALTOR who is familiar with the area and where the buyers came from for comparable sales AND one that understands how to get additional exposure for your listing outside of their local multiple listing service (MLS) and the various sites that it sells the listing data to. See our listing plan at the link below for ideas on what might help your property's exosure.
3) Many sellers are tempted to ask for placement in print advertising where their audience might be... however, print advertising no longer shows itself to be as effective as it once was, consider electronic media... especially when considering the cost vs. return.

Good luck!

It can happen, but bad credit is costly, and from the lender's point of view, it isn't so much a matter of whether it can happen for you - that you get the loan - as it is a matter of whether they can count on getting paid.

So, therein lies the rub. You're looking to borrow money when you've had problems paying it back in the past. This will cost you.

Ideally, you'd wait until you've fixed your credit, but there are lenders out there who are willing to lend you money, just not on the best terms.

Manager should be paid by percentage of the broker split or net profit. That will intent the manager's motivtion as a owner. He/she should provide business report every month and preposal every quater. As an office with less than 10 associates, His/her report should be 300-600 words on double line e-file. That is easy for you to read, note and save it. The preposal should be 500-1000 words with the same formating and cover the next one year planning.

The manager havs to also ask the associate to do the same thing. And another important thing is the manager should not have his/her own case. He/she should assign an associate to handle his/her own case. He/she can not do market as an associate too. The manager should manage in the office full time. Do not use the top producer to be the manager.
