tony and suzanne marriott: FAQ 5 - Isn't Aerial Photography dangerous and illegal? - 06/20/17 07:26 AM

 
Isn't Aerial Photography dangerous and illegal?
 
Great question!
 
Commerically operating an aerial drone, such as the DJI Phantom 4 Pro that is part of our fleet, to take aerial photos and videos is not illegal PROVIDING the drone pilot in command has an FAA Part 107 Remote Pilots license or other specific authorization from the FAA.
 
Commercial operation of an aerial drone by an unlicensed pilot IS illegal and risks significant legal consequences for all involved with such an operation.
 
Prior to the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilots license becoming available in August of 2016, the only other FAA Authorization was an "333 Waiver" - … (5 comments)

tony and suzanne marriott: FAQ 4 - Why should I consider a Short Sale instead of foreclosure? - 06/20/17 06:58 AM
Q: Why should I “bother” with doing a Short Sale rather than letting the property go to foreclosure, especially since I make "too much money"?
 
Great question!
 
 
 
Generally speaking there are at least three reasons to consider a Short Sale versus letting the property go to foreclosure:
 
 
1. The amount resulting from a Trustees Sale (Foreclosure) will be less than the amount the Lender(s) receive from a Short Sale, meaning that the amount of “debt forgiven” by the lender is less with a Short Sale, and therefore tax liability (if there is one) is less by completing a Short Sale.
 
2. A Short … (4 comments)

tony and suzanne marriott: FAQ 3 - What is a Full Service Listing? - 06/19/17 11:14 AM

 
What is a Full Service Listing?
Great question!
We know that there are many different business models out there - both in terms of service provided and in terms of price.
Some "Flat Fee" business models will charge a "flat fee", put your listing in the MLS, and you do the rest.  All of it.
The best answer we can offer for your question is to describe what we do to help Sellers get their listings sold, in a reasonable amount of time, for the highest possible price.

tony and suzanne marriott: FAQ 2 - Who pays the commission in a Short Sale? - 06/19/17 09:22 AM

 
Who pays the commission in a Short Sale?
Great question!
In a Short Sale all expenses of the sale usually paid for by the Seller in a traditional sale are paid from the proceeds of the sale and do not come out of the Seller's pocket.
In a traditional sale, Buyer and Seller enter into a contract with a specific sales price, terms and conditions, and stipulations as to who pays (Buyer or Seller) for what expenses of the sale that need to be paid at close of escrow.
From a Seller's perspective, this means that all of their expenses of the sale are deducted … (12 comments)

tony and suzanne marriott: FAQ 1 - What is the first step in purchasing a home? - 06/18/17 07:44 AM

 
What is the first step in purchasing a home?
Great question!
The very first "preliminary" step in  purchasing a home is deciding whether or not you want to purchase a home!
Do you know where you want to live?
Do you know what type of home you want to live in?
...and many other questions you must ask yourself, and answer!
 
Once you have concluded that you do want to purchase a home, and have some idea of where and what type of home, the first "real" step is to learn how much you can afford to pay.  
If you contact us to help you purchase a … (12 comments)
