When you list a house for sale that’s part of an estate, it’s important to do your homework. As REALTORS, we know this. We check first for authority: Who has the authority to sign, to sell, and does it even state anywhere that the house must or can be sold. We clarify if multiple parties are part...

… Most of the Time.    It’s been a bit of a crazy day today in terms of business with lots of details to follow up in many different directions. I’ve had multiple calls today that were out of the blue… the unrealistic buyer who is under the misconception that a low credit score is enough to get a...
