BUYERS, DON'T BOTHER PREQUALIFYING WITH "YOUR" LENDER ~ BECAUSE MANY LISTING AGENTS ARE DEMANDING YOU USE THEIR LENDER. OR "THEM" - 06/05/09 10:09 AM
Recently I posted a VENT (read it here) about listing agents DEMANDING a buyer pre-qual with a specific LENDER. I even called CALIFORNIA ASSOCATION OF REALTORS ( C.A.R) and the attorney did say it is LEGAL, IF the Realtor has a SIGNED AGREEMENT with the repo bank, though he (the attorney) could see problems arising from it and did bring up the word RESPA. "Hummm. Good point, I told him." So, yesterday, I get a call from a client wanting to see a particular property. I pull up the listing off the MLS to get the "Showing Instructions." Right after those remarks, I read (and (24 comments)

We bought our parking pass (self ticket machine) and started our adventure through these gardens. The first plantings took place way back in 1963. Today, a few of the plants and trees you'll come across as you stroll through the (8 comments)
