Building confidence and lowering the risk for the client - so they don't feel like you operate like so many agents do...and you will actually over deliver on your performance for them.
Service is key in this industry...and the good news is - it's pretty easy to standout from the crowd...but it does require work! Start helping your prospects and hold their hand giving them good information so they look to you as the only person they want to work with! Tom Hinz

If the desired price is more than the current market value, than in my opinion it's not a good idea. You should speak to a local Realtor to get a better idea of what the home is currently worth and he/she should be able to advise you on any upgrades or improvements that need to be done. When making any changes prior to selling a home, it is important to keep colors and designs neutral. What you might like, many not be what a prospective buyer would like. Keep it simple. ... more

There are many fees and costs that vary depending on which broker you join, but still, it's such a deal if you consider what it would cost for you to open up a business with rent for an office or start-ups fees. While you are getting ready to start your career in real estate, I suggest you make a list of the things you know you'll need to support doing business. Upgrading your car, computer, professional photo, set aside money for your professional fees and an advertising budget. There's no reason you can't make appointments to start talking to some brokers about your business plan and find out the costs early on! ... more

Hello Pauline,
Keep the opportunity cost and a 2 year uncertainty in mind when taking a decision. Nobody knows for sure how the market will behave in a year/two from now. You have a chance of getting a higher price for the unit in 2017 than today. By signing the contract you give up an opportunity to sell the apartment at a higher price and bear the risk of the purchaser to not being able to close. You have more flexibility and room for action WITHOUT getting into contract.
Unless your tenant is offering you an amount that is over 15-20% of the market value of the unit I would think twice if you really need to proceed.

Hi Scott

Thanks for the question.

On Trulia you can post if you are an agent. This way one gets better qualified listings.
Its also an issue of liability, as you can have criminals list, and have people show up, and

Good luck

As long as there is a tub somewhere in the house, you should have no problem selling it. I have sold homes where this was the case and nobody seemed to be bothered by it.

for more help contact

If you have power of attorney that you can represent his interests. The organization can start a proceeding to determine residency as well as occupant fraud, but it sounds like the shareholder has a viable defense. You should be able to sell the unit. We have legal partners who would be able to advise you. Feel free to contact us:
