I love Activerain and as we all are VERY well aware of, Zillow owns it. I have protested against Zillow for years. It's apparent and obvious that I'm not alone. Many Realtors see Zillow as a threat while others despise Zillow for pumping out inaccurate home evaluations and misinformation. Then th...

Most everyone in this business knows that most of the money made in this business isn't from helping buyers and sellers with houses, it's making money off of Realtor advertising dollars.

What do you guys think of Inspectors using drones? At first I thought it was just a silly excuse for an inspector to incorporate one of his toys into his inspection, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. There's no way I'd want to climb on roofs and inspect chimney's and take pi...

It's a precarious position to be in. One of my listings just received 2 offers - from the same brokerage. Betty and Bobby both work for the same company, XYZ Realty. Personally, it makes no difference for me and my seller, but it certainly matters (it better) to the brokerage for Betty & Bobby.  ...

I just found THE house for my buyer on our MLS today. It's perfect. My buyer would be willing to pay above asking price. There's only one problem; it can't be shown.
