Are you taking advantage of the Q & A button?

Hi Everyone-I don't know if some of you realize there is a Q & A button on the title bar. I noticed it the day I think it was added and almost posted it til I saw that AR had done it so I didn't.

Tonite I happened to be look at the questions while having my dinner. What I discovered is there isn't a whole lot of folks answering people's real estate questions. Not being a realtor I am not able to answer their questions but I am sure any of you that are could.

Now I don't know if by you answering their question it would lead to anything but you never know and who would you rather have that contact. YOU or your competition. I am sure that it would only takes a few minutes of your time but the payoff could be a buyer or seller for you.

Check it out. What have you got to lose? Maybe a sale.

In the earlier days of Activerain, I found it very annoying that agents were crossing state lines to provide real estate advice on the Q&A section of the site - in many cases, the information provided to questions about Maryland real estate was incorrect under Maryland law.  I finally stopped looking at the page to avoid getting worked up.  Maybe I should check back to see if that situation has changed over the years.

Hi Sharon, I checked this out after someone else also blogged about it. At that time, I saw answers from other states' agents. Glad to see you can now sort by state.

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for the info.  I didn't even know there was a Q&A tab until reading your post.  I must've missed the post from AR too.  Thanks for the information and I'll be going to check out the Q&A after I submit this comment.
