Stupid Real Estate Investor asked:
Sister lawsuit's lawyer said "If you tell any potential buyer the land is going dry you can get sued". I don't like being dishonest.

Selling your home? Inventory is low and demand is high, perfect time to sell. I am a Broker with Help-U-Sell in the East Bay. We sell homes for a flat fee. That includes all internet marketing, open houses, virtual tours, paperwork and bringing it to a successful close. My listings sell with multiple offers over asking. Please call me at 510-427-7992 so I can save you thousands of dollars in commission with full service and extensive marketing. No need to pay 5-6% commission. If your home is listed with an agent, this is not a solicitation. Please contact the local Help U Sell Office

You should look at the apartments next to The Collection shopping center in the Oxnard/Riverpark area. It is just one exit down from Ventura but has lots of things to do in walking distance. If you want to stay in Ventura then you want to look at midtown. East Ventura is residential/family areas. They are nice but they are quiet and they don't get the nice cool ocean breeze. ... more

Top priorities are great public schools (Elementary, Middle High) and community feel. Our kids are used to being able to bike/walk to their friends.

You may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 2.5 million.

You may even utilize High Balance down payment and closing costs assistance programs and close with minimal out of pocket expenses all the way up to 636k.

To post a room for rent on Trulia, please follow these steps:

From the Trulia homepage, hover your mouse over the 'Rent' tab.
Click 'Post Your Rental Listing' at the bottom of the drop down.
Under 'Post a room', enter your address and click 'Continue' (if you click 'Post a home or apt', you will be redirected to our partner site, Zillow Rental Manager).
Follow the rest of the prompts to add specific listing information.
Once you click 'Publish', the listing will appear on Trulia within 1 hour.

Please note the listing will show on Trulia and also our partner brand, HotPads.

I hope this helps! If there is anything else I can assist with,

Rich Reed answered:
That's a great question! IMO it's not appropriate to use a multiple counter offer if in fact there are no other counter offers being made. It is a violation of an agent's duty of honest and fair dealing and good faith. However, I see this all the time. I have heard of it being suggested as a tactic to gain a stronger offer.
The form has been separated into two different forms, SCO and SMCO, instead of a check box.
The bottom line for me is that it's irrelevant. The current regular counter offer form protects the seller if he/she accepts another offer prior to buyer's acceptance of the counter offer. Ultimately, the buyer and seller have to have a "meeting of the minds" to create a binding contract and it doesn't matter who makes the final binding signature.
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.
Hope this helps!

Please fire whomever was in charge of these updates to the site. It does not navigate well, and is lagging because of too many ad placements.
Probably switching to another…

You want furniture but not too much. Empty or packed is bad. If you have an average house take out about half the furniture.
