They're already out as far as I'm concerned. In 2005 I spent less than $100 on newspaper ads and had one of the best ever sales and earnings years in the 27 years I've been in the real estate business. I noticed an article in the current "REALTOR® Magazine" that says Ohio based real estate firm R...

Sellers often rail against paying any sort of commission to get their house sold, let alone a traditional 6, 7, & 8% fee (at least mine often do, maybe yours are more generous) ;-) I find that if you break down your costs and demonstrate to them what you actually do, then more times than not they...

This is pretty automatic w...

Another avenue to learn more about buying & selling homes as an investment would be local investment clubs located in your area. Most of them tend to be very low budget, low key affairs you find by word of mouth and the 'friend of a friend' method. One of the largest and best organized in my area...

For several years now I've bought and sold single family homes for investment and made money on all of them. As real estate professionals w...
