Farheen,

If the listing agent is showing the premises and not allowing other agents to show it (nor allowing you to have your own representation), the listing agent is in violation of MLS Rules and certainly not conducting herself in a legal or morally acceptable manner.

As a Realtor, I would file a complaint with the Multiple Listing Service and local board of Realtors against this person. She is obviously only interested in getting the deal for herself and is certainly NOT working in the best interest of her client.

I would also let the stratus agent know what you encountered. He should be informed of the improper behavior of the listing agent.

This kind of behavior is appalling!

The profit margin is higher on a new house and it also sells faster. In New York City (Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn), cost to build a new house is approximately $90 a square foot. A 2000 Sq Ft house cost (Raw Materials and labor only) to build is therefore $180,000. After considering cost of land and other related fees a decent builder total cost should not exceed $250,000. These homes at $400,000 can sell in a week.

It's just math.

Hi. It all depends on the price and layout. An existing home is sure cheaper and if the layout is, let's say 3 over 3, most likely it would have the same income potential, talking about similar homes in similar areas. While a new home may have $3000 of monthly mortgage minus $3000 of rental income an existing home can have $2600 of monthly mortgage minus $3000 of rental income. And that's a positive balance right there. In Queens, NY you can get an exact deal like the one o just gave you EASILY. Please message me if you have any other question. ;) ... more

Rodolfo,

Finding a rental can be less stressful than you think.

We would be happy to provide you with a FREE service called Listing Book. Listing Book provides every property listed with the Multiple Listing Service.

We will set up an account that you will then own. Simply enter your search criteria and everything that matches your search will be delivered to your account.

If a property that is over your price limit is reduced into your range, you will be immediately notified.
When new properties are listed on the Multiple Listing Service that meet your search requirements, you will be immediately notified.

This service is free to you and does not obligate you to me or any other Realtor; you get to pick with whom you wish to work.

The minimal information we need to get you started is your full name, email address and $ maximum. You will control the rest.

Contact us at gail@GladstoneGroupRealty.com

The Banks, if heartless, are reasonable.

Jmwd,
You didn't indicate a property. Most listings contain a map, take another look and see if you can answer the question.

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed, you can however try blogging about the property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site. ... more

Yes, you can do this. Speak to a loan officer for the details and to see if you can qualify and how.

Jean,

Not enough information. I doubt if anyone is going to send you money based on this plea.

Wow those fees are pretty high. I would contact another lender and get a quote. Know your middle credit score so they don't re-pull your credit.

Best of Luck,
Nancy
