Are you in the DOG house again? - 04/12/12 07:11 PM
Does your listing smell like D-O-G? If so, it may be the reason it hasn’t sold. I recently stopped into an Open House to check out a home that’s been on the market for nearly a year. It has gone through numerous price reductions and at least 2 Realtors that I’m aware of. When I walked in the door, I was assaulted by an overpowering “sting” of chemical cover-up which, in my case, means an instant headache, watery eyes and a frantic urge to get out as fast as possible. Not to mention the intense annoyance of having to breathe toxic (3 comments)

So -- you wanna buy a short sale. Do you even know what that means? - 04/01/12 04:53 PM
This house is listed as a Short Sale what does that mean? A short sale is when the bank needs to approve the sale of the house for less than what the sellers owe on the property. Just yesterday first time home buyers were meeting with me and were wondering what a short sale was because one of the houses the Realtor found for them was a short sale. Here is an example: The buyer wants to offer $200,000 The seller owes $220,000 How can this house be sold? The answer is the bank needs to agree to take less money (2 comments)
