Just Staged by RE:STYLE This house has lots of potential, even though it hasn't been updated. Fortunately, after a year on the market, the homeowners decided to take advantage of my Inventory Reduction Sale (2 months for the price of of 1!) and stage the house. We have already received positive comments from Realtors who had shown the house before the staging, so let's hope it moves quickly!               For less than one month's mortgage payment (not to mention all the carrying costs), we got this house staged to sell!

What type of real estate agent are you?  There is a two blogs here on Active Rain today about an inspector doing his job and how the real estate agent acted afterward.  I am saying that the real estate agent acted unethically.  Sure it may not have fallen under any one category in our code of ethics.  But ethics are ethics whether they are written down or not.  We are working for people that need our help to find a good home.  That real estate agent should not be knocking the inspector for finding a major repair item in the house.  The agent should not be saying that they will put it out through the whole office not to use that inspector.  IT IS OUR JOB TO PUT OUR CLIENTS NEEDS BEFORE OUR PAYCHECK.  Sure times are tougher and we have to work harder to make money but don't show a bad sid...

I work for a mortgage broker but I am going to give you an insight into the difference between a bank and a mortgage broker.A bank usually has different loan programs and rates for all of those programs.  Many banks have a set rate for each particular program.  A few banks allow their loan officers to deviate a little on the rates.  Each bank has their set of "guidelines or rules" that the loan must conform to.  If they don't they usually turn the loan down.  If it is a smaller, friendlier bank sometimes they will make exceptions.A mortgage broker usually represents 10 - 40 different banks and lenders.  So instead of one rate or one set of guidelines for a 30 year rate they may have 20 different rates and 20 different sets of criteria for that 30 year fixed rate.  That one of the differ...

Alot of buyers today who are looking to purchase a home almost always say I am looking for a good deal, a foreclosure.  I then further ask them why do you think that a foreclosure is the only good deal out there?  They typically say, well I want to buy a home that is undervalued and live there for a while and build equity.  I always explain to the buyers that first with foreclosures Sellers Disclosures are not required which means that the Bank has not lived in the property and the property is offered as a  as is" condition.  This may not mean anything at the time and it might very well not ever be a problem but when things go wrong there is no one to point the finger at.  That is the first point the second point is that banks are not always as negotiable as someone needing to sell for ...
