New Agent: Tips for picking a brokerage.
I just started looking for a place to hang my license and was looking for advice on office location of the brokerage.
I grew up in Scottsdale and live in the Biltmore / Arcadia area. I know this area really well and want to build my business here. Given the fact that I am new to this field, is it important to have the office in the area that you want to work in?

Should I buy a house that someone committed suicide in? This house is beautiful and listed well below market value. I only plan on living in this house for 3-4 years. Will I be able to sell this house?

what am I missing here? I have posted a few blogs, okay, not too many. My first couple blogs got a few comments. But lately I don't see any activity. What am I doing wrong? And should I be posting to groups, or Active Rain or what? I am looking for a tutorial but haven't seen one. I will keep looking for that Active Rain 101!

I need a good Mortgage person that does USDA loans to send my clients to in NC. I emailed one or two mortgage people and they never responded so that answers that question. I want someone who will keep me informed and not pull the 11th hour "oops, I need this" scenario. I'm tired of it. I need a dependable person that can get the job done---on time. Any suggestions???

We are first time home buyers. We are scheduled to close Escrow Friday. The seller, who our agent suspects is a flipper has been very difficult to deal with. We expect to receive notice from him that exterior termite damage repairs have been completed. However, an inspection of the home yesterday reveled that the repairs at this late date are far from complete. And what has been done is beyond substandard.
If the seller has not competed the repairs before our scheduled close on Friday and refuses to complete them, can repair cost be withheld in the final Escrow procedure and if so, what do we need to do to start that process?

I'm a new agent (as of a week ago) and I am also new to the area. I've only been here a few months! Does anyone have some advice on how to find clients - besides floor duty and open houses (which I am already doing!)

I'm a broker w/o access to Central LA MLS - need a CMA of a piece of land on Deer Trace, off Stilley Road in Pineville for potential referral to a Pineville/Alex listing agent (I work only with buyers). It's approximately 1/2 acre. No street address, which I thought odd. Any assistance appreciated asap-they're ready to list.

We have not signed a contract with an agent, but have used one to walk through a few houses. We are interested in putting in a bid on a house that we walked through over two months ago. Are we legally required to place any bids through that agent? If so, are we required to do so for a certain period of time (since we last walked through the house)?
