Most people easily recognize when the time is right to buy their very first home. They are tired of their current situation and the appeal of getting their own place is too enticing to resist. However, the signs are not quite so easy to notice when it is time to sell the home. Some home owners have a long,…Continue

This is particularly the case when it comes to digital signature technologies such as DocuSign, Dotloop, EchoSign, and a plethora of others that allow agents to gather signatures on offer docs and send to the listing agent.
All of these technologies put control of the offer process into the…

I accepted an order 4 days ago from RESNET-
of course they tell you to do it for free in hopes of getting a listing in the future-
I assume the only reason they are getting away with it is that other brokers are doing free BPO's-
guys-have a little more self respect-
I suggest you accept them and do not do them-
Just curious of how many people have been receiving this e-mail from Fresh Start.
It's Lease to Purchase program, has anyone heard of them? Are these people legit?
I want your feedback, please. Has anyone been successful dealing with them?
Many real estate agents that provide BPOs know what is entailed in the process. Many BPO agents enjoy doing BPOs and many that don’t necessarily enjoy them, but feel that it is necessary to supplement their Real Estate business and to develop relationships in the industry.
There are even companies that seem to offer…Continue

Escrow is that bit that makes sure all is fair in love and war when you sell your home and both parties (seller and buyer) are satisfied and fairly treated during this most testing of processes. If you have ever sold a home before – or indeed purchased one – you will have been more than aware of the term "Escrow".
I'm always reminded by the plaque on my wall that says, "We are compensated only to the extent that we add value to the other people". Simple but instructive. The human element should not escape real estate professionals. The only way to get any seller to work with you is to convince them you can solve their problem.
Before we address these questions on the merits, a little refresher background is in order. Probate is the process supervised by a surrogate court of competent jurisdiction…Continue

The listing agent usually provides the seller with a market analysis of the surrounding area, opinion of listing price and property value and explain in detail all the fees that the…Continue
