Should a Seller Pay The Buyers Closing Costs?
The answer is easy - why not? The only thing a seller should care about is what they are NETTING!

Unfortunately some sellers get caught up in things that don't matter. Have you heard from a seller before "why should I pay the buyers closings costs - let them pay it!"

Small thinking from uneducated clients. A good real estate agent knows how to overcome this line of thinking immediately.

Take a look as +jon miller covers this topic.

by Jon MillerShare . . . When the topic of paying their buyer’s closing costs comes up, most sellers say “No way!” Following that, they usually say something along the lines of ‘If they can’t afford to pay their closing costs then they shouldn’t be buying the house.’ That may be true, but it mayRead more

It's all a question of how motivated the seller actually is.

Why Are Some Real Estate Agents so LAME!
One of my biggest pet peeves being a real estate agent is actually dealing with the incompetence of other agents.

Anyone who is a professional and has been around the real estate industry long enough realizes the barriers to entry are way too low.

This causes anyone with a pulse to get their real estate license - it creates an environment where you get exactly what +Xavier De Buck talks about in his latest article - POOR COMMUNICATION.

The excuses are always there and it sucks! Are you one of those agents? Why don't you step up your game - have a look at some of the X Mans advice along with +Anita Clark +Kyle Hiscock and +Conor MacEvilly.

What Are The Hidden Costs When Buying a Home
Most buyers understand the basic costs of buying the home...things like applying for a mortgage and getting a home inspection.

There are however many other costs with purchasing a home that buyers don't realize until they are asked to pay them!

In his latest article +Greg Hancock tackles some of the more common expenses buyers forget about. Greg was gracious enough to reference my article on private mortgage insurance which is surely a cost some buyers don't know about!

What to Know About Selling in Seller's Market
Selling a home in different types of markets presents different challenges.

In their latest article +Ferris Property Group tackles what you need to know about selling in a favorable market.

Some sellers hear the news that it's a sellers market and automatically think they can tack on $25,000 to their asking price even though data shows the home is not worth that much.

This is just one sound tip provided in the article along with others including references from +Lynn Pineda +Xavier De Buck and +Debbie Drummond.

Are you thinking of buying or selling a home in Raleigh NC? If so then I would highly recommend speaking with Ryan Fitzgerald of Raleigh Realty.

Michael George is one of the few people I will trust when it comes to SEO. He is down to earth and knows his stuff. Unlike some SEO's, who like to give you unrealistic expectations or do crooked things in order to obtain short term rankings, Michael plays by the book. If you have a Wordpress blog and need any kind of help either with implementing or running a site, I would highly recommend him! Over the years Michael has fixed a number of Wordpress issues I have run into for a very reasonable amount of money. You can't go wrong when you hire the Guru Effect!

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.
