Real Estate Q. I have being an active rain blogger for a while now and really like the platform. But I am taking a hard look at all my expenses and want to justify the $50 a month. I signed up with zillow recently and am getting warm leads which is nice. With zillow I get a site that includes a blog powered by wordpress. My question is - what is the advantage of keeping active rain over blogging on zillow/wordpress? The obvious answer is SEO right? I look at my stats from my blogs on active rain. And I am getting what feels to me like significant traffic. But there is no business coming from it. So back to my question - what's the advantage of keeping active rain?

Real Estate Q. I inadvertently deleted myself from a group. When I search groups, everything comes up including members, blog posts, and other listings making it impossible to find the group. I have had the same problem searching blogs - it doesn't just search the blogs - it searches everything. How can I find what I am looking for?

Real Estate Q. I've been leasing a condo unit for the past year; the owner has decided to sell, since the lease is ending very soon. Her real estate agent contacted me to inform me that they would be showing the unit. I informed him that I needed some time to get the place in order for showing, as things were in disarray due to the packing. He reassured me that they see that all the time when someone is moving and not to worry. Shortly thereafter, the owner contacted me directly and was furious that the unit "was not in any condition to be shown" due to boxes stacked around the unit. The lease does not stipulate that the unit be in a "show-able" condition, only that I allow access to the agent, which I have done. I was never informed of any issue with the state of the unit (it's clean, but cluttered with boxes). Can the owner take legal action against me, due to her choosing to delay the showing of the unit until I am out? She came into my unit (with my permission), and railed against me as to how much money she's going to lose as a result of "not being able to show the property". I have been very upset about this since the incident occurred.

Real Estate Q. Declining an offer based on a VA loan? Has anyone ever experienced THAT? I have well-qualified buyers that want to go VA on their purchase. We submitted a very good offer- less than $10K under list price -and the seller declined flat out as they didnt want to go through a VA appraisal- not because of any anticipated repair issues but because of a perception that VA appraisals are coming in low. Anyone ever experienced this? I don't see ANY validity in this but the listing agent is standing by it and is expecting us to go conventional. Has anyone seen any shred of truth or possibilty that this is true? My buyers are irritated and are walking away as they feel discriminated against.
