Here are some stories -literally from the real estate trenches-that will leave you scratching your head, asking "What were they thinking?!?"

Fellow real estate agent Paul writes very well about a topic of concern to both buyers and sellers.    I've experienced trying to get a transaction open or closed with a few less-than-scrupulous agents and it's very frustrating all around.     In our offices, we have a great culture that takes th...

Here's a great article written by a fellow REALTOR back east - but the situation is the same here in Santa Cruz County.    She articulates the reasons not to wait for an open house to review offers quite well.    All I can think to add is, waiting to accept offers also puts the seller at risk of ...
