Against the advice of some veteran agents in my office, I recently decided to take my first short sale listing in an attempt to learn the process and not be afraid of the words "short sale".  Many agents warned me against this, saying that the transaction are too lengthy and confusing, and that I...

While on a listing appointment recently, I did what any good agent does and began making a few small suggestions regarding ways to increase the likelihood of the sale of the home.  However, what came next surprised me to say the least. The home owner had no idea that some of these small suggestio...
