Foreigners can buy real estate in the U.S. without spending 1 day in that home. You would be considered an investor. The issue will be financing. If you pay cash - no problem. If you need a loan, then you might have problems. ... more

If your personal website does not generate leads, let the leads come more from Trulia etc. but use your personal website to convince visitors why you are the best person to work with. So they can see that when they visit your personal website, such as to vet you after finding you on Zillow.

See for example No listings there but a lot of material about marketing themselves.

This is a common story for scammers. NEVER wire money, never rent a home sight unseen, if it looks and sounds to good to be true, it usually is.

Well Bill, that's an interesting question!

I think first and foremost a buyer/seller should interview several Realtors to get a feel of how they may or may not work together. The consumer should be aware that not all licensee's are created equal! They definitely want a Realtor in there corner. Someone they feel comfortable with and can ask questions to without feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable. Someone who will be attentive and work hard on their behalf. Someone that gets it done.

When new agents are mentored throughout the process by an amazing broker, surrounded by an A-Team of Affiliates... success is inevitable!!

Inventory seems to be low by us, causing homes to list and sell quickly. However, home prices are still low and non-distressed sellers have to compete with foreclosed and short-sale prices. ... more

Surprisingly, I still have the same opinion now, in 2012... Be sure to credit the main source of your content with a follwed link and focus your efforts there.

@Bill FYI, This question is from 2009. I noticed that you are using WordPress with the AgentPress theme and the Diverse Solutions IDX plugin, I have looked into this exact setup for various agents and am curious what you think of it? Also, just a small friendly tip, I would check into improving your page load speeds, Google factors the speed into the algo now and it took about 5 seconds to load each page. ... more

Dane Hahn answered:
The percentage increase in condo sale prices in North Conway is a number you could get from a local Realtor. But condos in North Conway span quite an array of dwellings, from smallish time-shares to quarter shares, to half shares to the generally appealing full ownership of a 2-4 bedroom row house to free standing homes in a Condo development. So if you want numbers that are solid, you should compare apples with apples--and not all condos against all condos over a 5 year period.

Also, and just because I have been doing this for a long time, I recall there was a time you couldn't give condos away. And so the pricing at that point would be artificially low--i.e. would not represent even what the replacement cost would have been. My recollection is that the condo debacle was from 1989 through perhaps 1997. Meaning that the increase in value you will see from 1997-2002--which will certainly be impressive--may NOT reflect the same growth in appeal or in value that houses experienced, but will be a rapid return to normalcy.

Good luck, hope this helps.
