Real Estate Q. I inadvertently deleted myself from a group. When I search groups, everything comes up including members, blog posts, and other listings making it impossible to find the group. I have had the same problem searching blogs - it doesn't just search the blogs - it searches everything. How can I find what I am looking for?

Real Estate Q. I've been leasing a condo unit for the past year; the owner has decided to sell, since the lease is ending very soon. Her real estate agent contacted me to inform me that they would be showing the unit. I informed him that I needed some time to get the place in order for showing, as things were in disarray due to the packing. He reassured me that they see that all the time when someone is moving and not to worry. Shortly thereafter, the owner contacted me directly and was furious that the unit "was not in any condition to be shown" due to boxes stacked around the unit. The lease does not stipulate that the unit be in a "show-able" condition, only that I allow access to the agent, which I have done. I was never informed of any issue with the state of the unit (it's clean, but cluttered with boxes). Can the owner take legal action against me, due to her choosing to delay the showing of the unit until I am out? She came into my unit (with my permission), and railed against me as to how much money she's going to lose as a result of "not being able to show the property". I have been very upset about this since the incident occurred.

Real Estate Q. Declining an offer based on a VA loan? Has anyone ever experienced THAT? I have well-qualified buyers that want to go VA on their purchase. We submitted a very good offer- less than $10K under list price -and the seller declined flat out as they didnt want to go through a VA appraisal- not because of any anticipated repair issues but because of a perception that VA appraisals are coming in low. Anyone ever experienced this? I don't see ANY validity in this but the listing agent is standing by it and is expecting us to go conventional. Has anyone seen any shred of truth or possibilty that this is true? My buyers are irritated and are walking away as they feel discriminated against.

Real Estate Q. I’m an investor in the area generating a lot of leads through creative marketing, and I'm looking for an investor friendly realtor. I would like to be able to refer the leads I can’t buy, and the ones that I buy and look to sell I would like someone who could represent me who is really great at marketing. Who has the most investor friendly realtors and brokers?

Real Estate Q. Dear Realtor,
Please forgive if my question is in the wrong category, as I am very new to this. I would like to ask if any Realtor believes that an under ground irrigation system helps to "sell" a home. Is that a selling point you expose to buyers? I am the Service Manager for Franklee Irrigation for over 20 years. In these years, I've had numerous clients that are moving out or just moving into a home. When a home has a pre-existing system, I get calls to perform services to ensure it's in good working condition for selling.
So I had an idea to help cut costs for your industry, and increase sales for the Realtor & my company. I'd like to know if there's an interest for a Real Estate Company to acquire our services at a reduced cost to do any repairs needed to get an irrigation system working. We also would shut down systems in the winter and start ups in the spring.
Any and all suggestions, directions, and ideas are greatly appreciated in this manner. We are All looking to add to the bottom line, and more and more companies are creating teams to help achieve it. This idea can increase sales for all of us. My company is partnered with excellent Landscaping Companies with outstanding reputations where we both generate business for each other. We have hundreds of homeowners we do business for. The relationships we have with our clients and trust (trust comes from leaving garages unlocked for access to pump & controller) has lead to them asking for all types of referrals.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Real Estate Q. My mortgage was denied because the home needed repairs. The inspection found $1300 termite damage. The seller said that they wanted to pay for the damages and they treated for termites. I went back to the house and probed the wood and found more damage. The seller would not let me get back to the house for another estimate. There is unestimated damages. Now the mortgage is dead because home needs repair. I never agreed to accept mony or to have the house treated. The contract states Seller shall fix any teemite damages. Can the seller sue?
