Overall, sales during the first nine months of this year are still up over the same nine months from last year, but things do appear to be slowing down.

I found maybe 2 that I would actually put my own credit and money toward. One builder has 50 buyers all lined up waiting for financing. I googled their name and the entire first page of search results contained the words “RIPOFF” “SCAM” “CLASS ACTION”. I’m not kidding you. How do these 50 people put trust in this company. My philosophy is that if it looks like a duck and swims like a duck. the thing must be a duck!! right?? Due diligence is key. Your effort is required in real estate investing. If you cannot give any effort, you will find yourself sitting at home in 2 years wondering how you could have avoided your most recent foreclosure, short sale, or just a plain headache.

In fact, the reason it has been drawn up is so that the company does not offer to insure a mortgage on a property that is likely to drop its price. These projected market fluctuations represent their opinion, which is based on their own analysis.

If you are buying a home, make sure you look at the listings of homes in the area and be sure that they offer true comparable sales with similar square footage. Only make an offer once you have reviewed the listings and the sales in the area.

Now that you know how it works, the main difference between the traditional real estate point and flat fee MLS listings is the amount you will pay. Unlike traditional real estate brokerages, there is no commission due if you sell on your own without a buyer’s broker, you pay only the low, flat fee. An average seller can save between ,000 to ,500 per 0,000 of their sales price.
