My buyer talked to the seller directly... - 09/19/08 09:37 AM
Clearly, I need to be more diligent on this. Just today, a buyer of mine let me know that she spoke to the seller directly. Then again... the listing agent should have been diligent with his client. Or could it be that clients are doing so much online research, that they feel in charge of the process?

I can only wonder what she may have revealed about (0 comments)

The template for my email looks wonderful. It just won't download into my email program... my Mac email program.
If there are any Mac users out there... who know of a way to... oh... get programmers (1 comments)
1st time buyers - Re: closing costs paid by the seller - 09/04/08 09:51 AM
Oh! I am so upset. My manager just sent me the bad news... End in Sight for Seller-Funded Down Payments "Prospective homeowners have until Oct. 1, 2008, to use down payment assistance from a seller to purchase a house.
