Since you're an agent you should know that this site has very inaccurate info. Is it possible the owner missed some payments and an NED was file with the county at some point? Just because you see a "foreclosure" or even "pre-foreclosure" listing on these sites doesn't mean they are actually listed for sale. You know these sites are just using data (often BAD data) to generate leads, so they can charge us for these so called leads, right? If it's not in your MLS it's NOT for sale! ... more

I would recommend finding a few well water testing companies and find out what you can about their service history. That way you can be sure to pick the best one. You don't want to risk it when it comes to the water supply.

I have a large south facing window in my home. Since we live on top of a hill we get lots of sun exposure there. We wanted to find a way to limit the negative effect of the sun in the summer and enhance it in the winter so we purchased a retractable awning. We are saving quite a bit on utilities now! I'm glad I went with my wife on this idea! ... more

Real Estate is a very rewarding and exciting business. It is time consuming, however, and with four children it might be a challenge. It actually depends upon the ages of your children, if they are all small I would say no. If they are teens or older, you might be able to do it.
Some things to consider:
The times when families are normally together (Sat &Sunday) are the times when we are working. We are also very busy during Summer so that is another thing to consider.
On the other hand, business is traditionally slower during Holidays (Christmas) .
You can set up a "home office" and work mostly from there, that is very conducive to family life.

??????? Why would you think you can find class size information on a real estate website? Seriously, do you think everything you see on the internet is true? Most of the data that you find FREELY available will be highly biased to serve the purpose of the site where it is appearing. On Trulia, an advertising and entertainment website, the purpose is to provide volumes of internet information to keep you here as long as possible hopefully to get you to click on one of those ads. THAT IS IT IN A NUTSHELL. You should have no expectation of accurate, reliable, timely, responsible or relevant information. For that you would be well advised to turn towards the professional who are accountable for the data they present. In your need to chat with the dept of education or school admin. ... more

Just wondering why Trulia won't spend time on tweaking their site and make it more user friendly for all of us. What's up with that? How many times do you have to write to them to no avail? ... more

There is a mixed discussion on the topic of agent vs attorney negotiation. More and more banks are bailing on paying a non agent to negotiated. I have used both because of the time it takes to go through the follow-up. Find an attorney team that you can work with. I have worked with the harasser in the communication. Do it this way.. Wait do it that way. No do it this way.. You don't want that. . . For sure!!! Anyway. Short sales, with a good follow up system are easier to complete and you have better understanding of what your file status is. ... more

Dukestate, This example raises a lot of concerns.. From State license law to RELATOR ethics issues to possible RESPA issues, I would not feel comforatable as an agent being involved with something like this until I spoke to the Department of Commerce and an attorney. If your friend is uncomfortable I am sure the Department of Commerce could begin to give some direction. ... more

If you go to your pull down by your profile, you will see where it says My listings. Go there and you will see your listings. Click on the edit button and you will see the photo tab. You can edit photos for a listing from there.

Our listings get fed into Trulia with ListHub so they get removed when they are terminated in the MLS. You might have to email the agent directly if they entered it manually.

Ruth and Perry Mistry answered:
Hi John

As a handicapped owner you have rights. Since, it was deemed that your pet is a
service Dog you should be in good shape.

The issue comes up is that if the By laws require that you had to declare a service dog first before
A complaint to the Board or HOA.

Prudent to call the HOA and ask them why should you be paying the Bill, when you are legally
Allowed to have a service dog?

You should attend the next HOA meeting.

Good luck.

You need to choose a broker to hold your license. Interview a few before deciding, there are some big differences in splits, education, etc. Good luck.
