An Agent’s Job Doesn’t End When the Contract is Signed – In Fact, It Really Just Begins - 11/18/09 02:23 PM
My last post was about Discount Brokers (DB's), and the question of whether the service they provide is worth the reduction of services. My Buyers have a house under contract, and so far have spend nearly $1000 on their Home Inspection, their Termite Inspection and a Well and Septic Inspection. The contract on the home they were selling settled yesterday, and the new house settles on November 30. If you recall, the Discount Broker thought the appraisal was done...but it wasn't. This week, I checked with the DB on Monday to see if the appraisal had been completed. He told me (0 comments)

The question is - what are you giving up in terms of service for that reduced fee, and is it worth it? Discount Brokers may tell you that you aren't giving up anything. In my experience, that is not always the case. For example, right now I have a settlement that is supposed to take place in 30 days. As (3 comments)
Home Inspections - what do you look for in a home inspector? - 11/04/09 12:46 PM
We all know the value of home inspections, but is there intrinsic value in the home inspector himself? Everybody knows that experience is important, as is certification, but isn't a great portion of the real value of a home inspection the way that a home inspector handles himself in explaining issues that arise during the inspection process? I think a home inspector can make all the difference in the world as to how the buyer actually hears what the problem is and the extent of its seriousness. Last Saturday I had an inspection during the inspection a significant structural issue arose. (4 comments)
