I Believe God Wants Me To Tell All In Real Estate
After years of experience in the real estate industry I felt that God wanted me to write about everything in real estate. There were young people that were not being protected by anyone, including buyer's agents. Once I did a VA appraisal on a house that was unbelievable in the amount of repairs. It was listed by one of the most dishonest agents I have ever met. We had words on numerous ocassions. When the appraisal was completed it was "subject to repairs" and it was a big list. I was at the house when the buyer showed up, then came his agent. They wanted to know if everything was alright. I told them a lot of repairs would have to be done to meet VA minimum property standards. The agent called his partner who quickly showed up with the crooked selling agent on the cell phone. Not only the listing agent but the "buyer's agents argued with me. They wanted me to let it go so the young man could just get the house. He was about 23 years old, had just gotten out of the navy and was going to college.

What You Can Do To Sell Your Home Fast
Yes, you want to sell your home and you want to sell it fast. It may be a seller?s market and every other home in your neighbourhood is selling and you think it?s going to be a cakewalk selling your home. You put your house up for sale, people come, a few offers pour in, negotiations take place and then something happens that the deal falls through. This happens more than not when it comes to selling homes. The critical stage is when someone?s given you an offer and when the negotiation starts. First thing, when you get an offer, which in your opinion is ridiculously low don?t just reject it outright. In most cases, the buyer?s just testing the waters to see the best he can get. Always give a counter-offer however disparate your figure may be with the buyer?s offer. Once that?s done, you want to make sure the deal doesn?t fall through. There are many ways in which you can close the deal fast and ensure that both you and the buyer are satisfied. What you can do is negotiate with some other items. Here below are a few examples:

Real Estate Investing Myths That Steal Profits From Your Pocket
One of the things that distresses us about our industry is the amount of wrong or incomplete information available to investors. Some myths block what otherwise would be a great deal, while others would have you believe that a bad deal is actually great. For example, we encourage purchasing homes "subject-to" the existing mortgage as an option to finance the purchase of an investment property. This means that title to the property is transferred to the purchaser, but the loan remains in the original borrower's name with payments made by the purchaser. Unfortunately, many myths exist around this method which could rob you of your profits. Let's take this opportunity to dispel 5 of the most common.
