I don't want to get into a gun debate, but I am interested in what you think about gun respect. It may be legal for me to walk into a sellers home locked & loaded, but will it offend them? If they knew I was showing their home armed to the teeth would it upset them? Should I care? I carry a weapo...
Who does the final walk-thru when the buyer is out of town? It's fairly common for buyers to close on the home they are purchasing while out of town and in some cases, out of the country.

But, wh...
Listen to the homeowners claim at the 16 second mark. He's also a Realtor. He states "Someone will walk away with this home for $150.00." Then at the 1:11 mark he says, "We're hoping to get market value for the home, we're not just looking to lose money, or just give away a house." I'm wanting th...
Every so often I run across a situation where a homeowner/Landlord demands to meet a tenant prior to approving or declining an application.
