Cut business overhead costs with internet advertising and reach more of the right people to increase your business profits  Mark Maupin will be hosting a panel of experts, in March, at the Mega Evening Event put on by the National Real Estate Network.  The March topic will be internet marketing.  "Expenses and overhead are part of every business.  The cost of TV and radio advertising is way too expensive for some small business owners," Mark explains.  "Most people go to the refrigerator during commercials or change the radio station during advertisements.  With internet marketing, people are using search engines to find what they are looking for.  Therefore, internet marketing is much more effective as it appeals to those who are truly interested," says Maupin. Mark Maupin is the co-fo...

I just returned home from meeting some prospective new tenants at a home I represent.  A very nice couple, put in a very unfortunate situation.They have been leasing a home for between 2 1/2 and 3 years, making timely payments.  According to them, the landlord quit making the payments on the note, the foreclosure process started, and the sherriff sale took place in the August timeframe.  At that time, the Landlord promised the tenants they should be able to stay through April of 2008 with no problem.  Unfortunately, as we all know, that is not the case here in Michigan, as the redemption period is 6 months.Now with the redemption period over, they are forced to move out in the next 10 days!!  I have heard about this going on, but have not had any tenant clients in this situation.  I thi...

I recently read Theron Patterson's post about BPO Payments and I had a couple comments, and questions.  I learned some interesting things about BPOs (well, in Michigan at least) while I was completing my Broker Training a couple years back.1.  In Michigan, it is not legal to be compensated for BPOs unless you have an Assoc. Broker license.2.  In Michigan, it is not legal to be compensated for a BPO unless your purpose in doing the BPO is to get the listing, not just provide an estimate of value.3.  In Michigan, it is not legal to be compensated as a licensed Salesperson in any other fashion then directly through your employing Broker.  No exceptionsPer Article 26 of the Occupational Code, Sec. 2601, the following is stated:(i) A market analysis performed by a person licensed under artic...
