I find your disingenuous comment quite interesting… Unfortunately, your educational input was overshadowed by conjecture.

The role of the leasing agent/realtor is understood, even implied, which is why the potential renter often opts to work with such person. There wasn’t a need to offer a skewed description of what you believe to be the nature of the role. This is a given. I appreciate your efforts and time in offering your opinion.

While real estate and home rental may be a private industry, and even lightly regulated… this is NO EXCUSE for any person working in the industry to operate without any ounce of ethic or morale. It was shameful and disgraceful for Elsa (representing Back Office Central, LLC), and ALL involved, with the home owner’s permission, to show 1918 Englewood Way home, in this condition, with hopes of renting the home--knowing there is black mold in the garage. Elsa apologized while entering the property with us, for the unkempt landscaping, the dirty, soiled carpet and garage having a tendency to flood on rainy days. It would have been GREAT if she also disclosed the black mold in the garage will also be “fixed,” instead of waiting for my husband to bring it to her attention first. There was approximately three other families viewing the home, with their small children. Elsa never said a word about the potential hazard.

Based on your post, the practice of showing and renting homes with black mold is something you’re very comfortable with, especially once you qualify the renter as low income.

The reality is, budget has NOTHING to do with utilizing ethics and morale, and just doing the right thing…when deciding to show a home with black mold to unsuspecting, innocent people (potential renters). It doesn’t matter if the home is being offered for fifty cents or $5900.00 per day… sick is sick. Regardless of wealth, each human only has ONE life. This ONE life makes each person equal, leveling the playing (paying) field! NO ONE should be subjected to black mold!

You are in no position to suggest what I can and can’t afford or to offer any advice on anyone’s finances. The amount I CAN afford, will NEVER “afford” my loved ones or myself a dirty, moldy and unhealthy rental home!

Your paragraph number four, was a complete waste of our time (yours and whoever reads it) and brain matter. Instead of posting such foolishness, perhaps you should use the last of your sunset years getting in touch with humanity and reality. Perhaps a Business Ethics class or two, community service, researching the effects of black mold on the human body, donating time to work with those less fortunate than yourself or even just being grateful that you and your loved ones are in good health or that you still have the time and demented mental capacity to waste the time of strangers with your frivolous posts.

To be clear, you are clearly out of touch with reality, perhaps this is the reason you’re retired. Surely, your retirement was a benefit for the industry; since it doesn’t need your help to cast a negative, unethical light on it.

Enjoy your life.

Hi Janetta. I work for Keller Williams Realty as a Realtor in the Snellville area. The agents are paid through the owner of the home, not through the renter.

She deals specifically with rentals/renters and would be happy to assist you. ... more

If you click on your name upper right, then scroll down to listings and edit , you should be able to schedule an open house on your listings you have published. If your listings are not sowing, make sure the box ids clicked on your MLS to include in Trulia. If your MLS does not have this, you will have to find a third party service to get your listing on sites such as Trulia. ... more

It's not true that simply adding a closet converts a bonus room into a bedroom. It takes more to make a room into a bedroom. Size, location and windows all are factors that influence that outcome. In the real estate listing world an agent wants to get the maximum potential of a house hence they think that simply adding a closet will get them a higher value. In reality to convert a room into a bedroom you will need to pull permits and change the city profile to reflect the additional room in the overall sqft.

I can see all sorts of nice answers to be considered. Haven't seen any on the Tax consequence. Here is my dilemma, and any comment would be nice. If I sell the house with Furniture for 220K and the house is 200K plus furnishing 20K, for the property tax purpose house cost will be 200K. @rate of 3% - property tax will be 6K/Y. If I consider 220K the property tax will be 6.4K/Yr. For the seller, if they have to pay the capital gains Tax, will it be more if the sell for 220K combined price? ... more
