Can I Use HAP if My Underwater Property is Rented? - 05:43 AM
Q. I rented my Bowie MD home when I got PCS orders from Fort Meade to Fort Bragg because I couldn't sell it for enough to cover the mortgage.

Every Listing Is A Personal Advertisement! - 08:56 AM
Every Listing Is A Personal Advertisement!Whether we necessarily realize it or not, every listing an agent has is an advertisement with two purposes: To find a buyer for that home AND to bring us more business, be that a buyer that doesn't match up with that listing OR a potential seller. Our approach is to provide ALL the pictures we can that POSITIVELY reflect our listing. That doesn't mean we ALWAYS max out the number of photos that MLS allows, but typically we will. NONE of those photos will include an open toilet, pets or a bedroom shot that is 90% (74 comments)
