consulting: MYTH-information - Competition for Finding a House is Great for Buyers!!! - 01/01/09 10:29 AM
It "sounds" logical, right?  If you're a buyer looking for a home, why not do your own shopping (properties abound on the web - listed properties, By Owner properties, New Construction!  There's virtually no end to the choices.  And you can talk to some agents, too, have them do some of the leg-work for you.  After all, they likely know more about the areas or the floorplans, so if you get their help you might even do better, right?
You've heard it all before - "two heads are better than one" (so four or five must be even better, right?).  Buyers frequently say things … (11 comments)

consulting: Changing the Landscape of Real Estate - It Must Make Sense!!!! - 11/30/08 06:12 AM
