Sellers: Are Buyers Swiping Left on Your Home? Let me back up a second...in case you don't know what I mean, which means that you have not experienced online dating...you would want a buyer to "swipe right" to get to know you better.  After all, just like the dating apps, your home is judged with...

It is not the first time that I have thought about this.  I am not in the practice of performing dual agency, even though it is allowed in Iowa.  In fact, I have sold over 200 homes in the last 15 years and I have only acted as a dual agent less than ten times!  Since I rarely host open houses on...

I mean think about it.....if you needed to sell your home tomorrow, what would you do first?  If you are an agent or married to one, you would know that your first call would be to a professional.  But what if you are a successful professional in another field?  Would you try to sell it on your o...
