seller: Would You Buy This House? - 09/20/08 10:25 AM
Believe it or not, the photos in this post are of a house I recently sold. We just closed last week. You should know that these sellers are experienced at buying and repairing houses that need a lot of work. But this house brings new meaning to needing a lot of work! It needs a LOT of work! And just before closing we had one more problem that caused the entire ceiling in the garage to collapse. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of that disaster.
However, I do need to mention that during the course of this transaction, I had the … (11 comments)

seller: Real Estate Listings on other web sites. Who controls the data? - 07/11/08 07:07 PM

seller: Selling A House; What Needs To Be Done - 09/29/07 06:58 AM
As a REALTOR®, when I list a house (also: condo, town house, manufactured home), I intend to sell it. Keeping this in mind, after making sure it's priced properly, I communicate with my sellers on the importance of keeping it "show ready".
