My Seller purchased the islands … (14 comments)

mackintosh realtors: Mobilizing the Real Estate Community - 01/17/19 08:05 AM
Despite what many people may believe, the large majority of homes are not sold directly by the listing agent. Too many agents take for granite that the general public knows how the listing and selling of property process happens. According to NAR, statistics show the listing agent has a 25% or less chance of selling their own listing and usually it is another real estate agent who brings the buyer. While this may be surprising to many, it is not unusual, it's how the real estate business works.

mackintosh realtors: You can't go higher than that ! - 12/18/15 11:53 PM
Did you know some Cities have building height restrictions?
The best known one is in Washington DC where there is a municipal code that no building in the actual District may rise higher in elevation than the Capitol building. In 1899 by an act of Congress passed the "Height of Buildings Act".
The Washington monument is much taller, however it is a monument and there are some slightly different rules that apply. It also sits at a lower elevation down the hill and closer to the Potomac flood plain than the Capitol, which sits atop the high point in the District.
