Questions Your Realtor Can Answer: What is the best color?

This was such a great post that I wanted to share with others that may have missed it..

I help a lot of folks who are moving to central Florida.  Some are familiar with the area and know pretty much what they are seeking in a home and new neighborhood.   But those having little familiarity often have lots of questions.

And I try to answer as many questions as possible.

Still, there are some questions I can't answer

These are the obvious ( and not so obvious) ones that would reflect a violation of the Fair Housing laws. [Learn about the Fair Housing Law.]   

Topics like what kind of people live in a particular area are a no-no.   Avoiding family status (family friendly, adults only, no children, etc) discussions is necessary.   It goes without saying racial composition is never up for discussion.  

Specific questions about the area including the location of schools, shopping, recreational facilities, churches and other topics will likely be asked.

There may be questions about the crime rate.  Is this neighborhood safe?  Is so and so elementary a good school? 

While not all of these questions are prohibited your real estate agent will avoid answering some anyway.

Many smart agents will refer questioners to visit local schools,  call the local law enforcement department, ride around the neighborhood after work hours or on the weekend.

The bottom line when it comes to questions, answers and buying a new home:  It all depends on who you are asking and their motivation

Asking a seller if the neighbors are good may get a different response than if you ask the guy not selling his home!

Asking a six foot man if the pool is deep may get a different response than asking a four foot eight inch person.

Some of these questions, even if an answer was permitted, may be strictly an opinion.  

Think of it this way... what is the best color?
