Update 7-23: rebuttal post that basically says I suck by Carla Muss-Jacobs. Click here. But to those that read that post, this has nothing to do with sellers that decide they NEVER want to list on the NWMLS. It has to do with marketing BEFORE it hits the NWMLS, which appears to be a strict viola...

Many Realtor blog posts will say "BUY NOW!!", or "Interest rates can't get lower!" Over here we first say DON'T BUY, ASK WHY (since 2006 when I had hair).
