Real Estate Q. We are a startup company building technology for Realtors and we are looking to solicit opinions on our new product, Realview. (website: realview.myinstapage.com ) A quick overview: As a Realtor, you are at the heart of the transaction ensuring your client gets the home of their dreams. Why does that relationship end after the agreement of purchase and sale is signed? There is still more work to be done and your client could be entering a minefield of condition fulfillments and closing. How do YOU continue to provide that 5 star service experience? RealView automatically pushes updates directly to you on all activity following the signing of the APS such as condition fulfillment, funding, and key status. It provides YOU with an unmatched ability to truly act as the quarterback the transaction for your client every step of the way! We believe Realtors lack an automated way to assess the status of the deals they work on after the agreement of purchase and sale is signed. Proactively understanding where the deal is in the closing process allows the Realtor to extend their value proposition and provide a truly "white glove" concierge service from initial search all the way to keys in hands. Are our initial assumptions around the issue correct? As a Realtor do you struggle to get post APS information and do you believe that having this information can increase your value proposition to your clients? Would acting as the true end-to-end quarterback be something that differentiates you from your colleagues and competitors? We thank you in advance for your feedback and help!

Real Estate Q. Hello- I have a rather complicated question: I just won a housing lottery which allows me to buy a 1 bedroom apt in Manhattan for way below market value- roughly $200K for a $400K apt. The condition is that since it’s subsidized by the city, there’s a secured enforcement mortgage- so the apt has to be my primary residence for the next 15 years (each year reduced by 1/15 of the total). Normally, it would be a no-brainer. It seems like an amazing deal- literally winning the lottery. However… I happen to already live in an amazing rent-stabilized apt where I only pay roughly $1000/month. In addition, I have this place for another 15 years! My problem is that my current place is also supposed to be my primary residence. So I think that would mean giving up my current place to move to the new place. I like my current location and building better than the new place. However, it seems like buying the new place is the better financial decision. Any ideas? You advice is greatly appreciated… Thanks, -Lucky Me

Real Estate Q. How do you deal with agents who don't want to deal with you? I'm finding it very difficult to help my client find a rental in Queens, NY. In one neighborhood in particular, there are over 20 listings between MLS, Trulia, Zillow and Craigslist, but almost all of the agents (99%) seem to be playing games to keep the full commission. They either don't answer their phone or they give me an excuse of why it can't be shown - under construction, already in contract, don't work Sundays(!) or if they can't think of an excuse they say that they'll call me back, and of course that never happens. Just to see, I called up one brokerage pretending to be a renter. The listing that was unavailable to be shown to me as an agent was all of a sudden available for me as a renter. I know that through MLS, this violates some code but I don't think there are any rules when posting ads on other sites. What do you all do in this situation?!
