BEWARE Rental Scams On the Rise - 08/28/09 06:20 PM
This scam is REAL. It's happened to me with a couple of my former rental listings that already have tenants. Please do not refer to Craigslist and other real estate websites for rental homes. Call a licensed Tampa Realtor - most will not charge you any fees to help you find a home. Via Chris Faircloth (Realty Executives): We have recently received a number of complaints regarding an internet rental scam that has been taking place across the country and is now affecting our area as well. Scammers are copying information from legitimate online rental ads and then posting that information on Craig's (1 comments)
Keller Williams Realty Partners with ListHub - 08/28/09 06:15 PM
Keller Williams Realty has just teamed up with ListHub, an asset management network. What does this mean to you, the Tampa Bay homeowner who needs to sell? The ListHub network gives Keller Williams agents the ability to enter a listing into the MLS, and then it syndicates automatically through ListHubs network to over 125 home search websites on the internet. Put simply, additional exposure usually results in additional showings, which can bring additional offers on your home. Keller Williams agents also have a Realtor.com premium package, which means we can put up to 25 photos of your home on Realtor.com, as (4 comments)
Tenant Served with a Foreclosure Notice? New Tenant Rights! - 08/22/09 11:28 AM
I cannot tell you how many times I hear from tenants who call me looking for a new home because they are tired of renting and I hear this story, "I was renting a home and got served with a foreclosure notice! Now what? Do I have to move? Can I stop paying rent if the landlord isn't paying the mortgage?" First and foremost, don't stop paying your rent if you are in a lease, as this could backfire on you and cause a failure to pay rent notice to hit, and damage your credit, causing you to be unable to purchase (2 comments)
Annual Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - 08/21/09 02:59 PM
Today, a non-real estate blog post. It's that time of year again. The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost. The picture you see here is me in 2001, when I was undergoing Chemotherapy for Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma, surrounded by my family. After chemo, I did 5 weeks of intense radiation as well before the doctors told me I had gone into remission. 8 years later, here I (4 comments)
Mesa, Arizona - The Buy and Bail Scheme Is Still Alive And Well!!! - 08/05/09 08:11 AM
In reading this blog, I have to agree! There are a lot of people out there that think they can do this, and I have a few words for you - if everyone could do this, wouldn't they? You are part of the problem, not the solution! Via Mesa, Arizona Real Estate *** Teri Ellis, Broker, ABR,CRS,GRI,ePRO,MRE (Homes Arizona Real Estate LLC): Recently I received a telephone call from a Realtor from another state. He introduced himself, told me he had found me through Active Rain, and knew so and so, and so and so - yada, yada......
