Over the last ten years I've heard the same complaints repeatedly. Over and over again I try and explain to my friends, family, customers and clients why we agents do the things we do. I can't say my opinions are the voice of all 1 million agents across the industry, but I suspect many of them ha...
Every week for the last ten years I have been bombarded with the so called "latest and greatest" with the mortgage aspect of the real estate business. Last week I was reminded by a loan officer that FHA is now taking buyers with a 580 credit score. She explained that even buyers with no job could...
A home buyer just backed out of a purchase based on ridiculous, erroneous and almost laughable information. Agent X had been working with his buyer, Nigel on a home purchase. Like many times before Agent X suggested three home inspectors to his buyer. Nigel opted to select his own inspector and w...
If you're selling your home in Texas you're required to provide a disclosure notice to potential buyers. Almost every buyer in Texas has the home they're purchasing inspected. In my opinion, home inspectors should be reviewing the seller's disclosure notice prior to conducting the inspection, and...
A female Realtor I know is using online dating sites to pick up potential buyers and sellers and her boyfriend is helping her. Her online profile claims she's single, but looking for romance, friendship and business connections. And it's working. Only the agent knows just how untruthful she's bei...
Last week I attended 2 separate listing appointments in the same neighborhood. Both home sellers had something in common... and it wasn't that they both had noses on their faces. They both had been "harassed" as they say by "out-of-control door knocking real estate agents." One of the sellers tol...
Are Realtors Required To Enter The House When Showing Their Buyers? Imagine selling your home for a moment. Would you expect the Realtor working with the buyer to accompany them throughout the entire showing? I would. There's a practice (don't ask me why) where some agents unlock the front door a...
Imagine a potential client emailing YOU and then be responded to by one of your competitors. It happens. And it will continue to happen. This isn't a Halloween joke, it's a real problem that we should all be more aware of.  When our real estate careers are born, we almost immediately think of a n...
An agent I know is in the middle of what might be a small claims lawsuit. Seller X has 4 cats and recently listed her home. The showing instructions make no mention of there being cats in the home. A few days later the buyer, Betty Bookmark showed up with her agent, Top Selling Todd. Unbeknownst ...
When my buyer (and most other buyers) attend a home inspection on the home they are purchasing they prefer that the seller and listing agent are not present. The buyer, the buyer’s agent and the inspector need to be able to discuss the findings and talk about possible resolutions without being in...
