  It’s Snowing!!!!! Snow should have been here for some time – Mt. Bachelor generally opens on or before Thanksgiving weekend.  This year we are seeing a late start to our winter recreational season.  Now we just started getting snow today – but it is supposed to be steady for the next several days.  Planning a trip to Ski Mt. Bachelor and Always wanted a home of your own to enjoy on this side of the mountain?

This is the follow up to the blog Buyer Deceived Because Agent Needed Commission comments are still being posted, thank you.

The other agents Principal Broker did not impress me when I interviewed with hi...

This broker has had her license longer than I, she has lived in our community for almost as long as I have, and her lack of knowledge down right scares me.She has a buyer that has an accepted offer on a lot, in a subdivision that is fairly popular. This broker has done a few transactions over the last couple years in this area and should know the zoning and area well.We all know what a RR10, FP, WA and LM are (in order they are Rural Residential, Flood Plain, Wildlife Area, Landscape Management). She has not added a due diligence contingency to the accepted offer, and each of the above are listed for zoning on the County Records for this property. Closing is a week...
