Jeremy...... It is best to remember that the builder's sales rep, represents the builder not the buyer. It is always best to work with a realtor who is in the business to protect your interests whether buying new or pre-owned homes (ie., always get your newly built home inspected before closing). Many builder's sales reps will advise you to rely on the inspector provided by the builder. This is not advisable. Always use your own, independent inspector. This is only one of the many things your realtor will assist you with in buying a newly built home. Also, since the builder is paying the realtor's commission, there is no additional cost to you if you do use a realtor to represent you in this kind of sale.

If you would like to discuss this further, please contact me at your convenience by email at or by cell (210) 488-5504.

I would not misrepresent the size of your house in any form or fashion. I tust the buyers and their brokers helping them look for a 4 bedroom house to be perceptive enough to realize that your house has spare room they could use as a study, a hobby room, a play room, or whatever extra space they need. Although home viewing traffic is not generally heavy these days getting no traffic at all is extreme. Several other reasons may account for your lack of traffic. I am afraid I am on the side of your realtor. Discuss with yhim/her the other possible reasons for the low traffic. Good luck! ... more

I am looking for an investor to purchase my parents house in NE San Antonio. They are retired military and are purchasing a new home in NW San Antonio. They would like to get 110,000 for it. It is Bexar County apraised at 125,000 with 1975 sq ft but it is actually right at 3,000 sq ft (remodeled) with a 35,000 gallon in ground pool. It is within 1/4 mile of Windrest (future HQ of Rackspace). Email me at with any questions. 10,000 investment will probably yield you 40 -60,000 profit. ... more

I agree with Kathy check out several agencies and see what they have to offfer you towards mentoring and training. I made the mistake of begining at a smaller agency that promised training. The training was go call your SOI (Sphere of Influence like friends and family) that was nice and all but I moved to New Mexico from out of State all my friends were other new agents. I switched to Coldwell Banker that had the best trainer and training department, also when I got to my office I had a Broker that was interested in mentoring me, not hoping I stay past my first 3 transactions.

I also woulld consider if this move is right for you? Real Estate is more of a lifestyle than a job. With long hours and few days off. Very little respect as you can see by some of the comments on this board. But it can also be rewarding when you help someone achieve the dream of owning there own home or selling their home for a great profit they can retire on.

Amy, I would not want to do anything else in the world than be a Realtor, good and bad, I love owning my own business and meeting great people I have worked with. If you do decide to become a Realtor I wish you success!

That seems to be an ongoing theme in many cities. Every city will not go through these adjustments at the same time. It might be their turn.
