Advice for New Real Estate Bloggers from The Experts.

Are you struggling with your real estate blogging and or failing to get any traction? Or too overwhelmed to even get started in the first place? For many Realtors and mortgage brokers, blogging can be intimidating and many who do give it a go, give up way too easily without giving it enough time to bear fruit.

On the other side of the coin, those real estate agents who do persevere and learn how to leverage their blogging will see benefits such of increased website traffic, getting their personalized branding and expertise out there in front of the public, and yes, more leads and business.

To help you along the road to blogging success, I asked some of the top real estate bloggers as to how they would advise a newbie or struggling blogger to get over those initial hurdles that tend trip up the unprepared. There are two common nuggets of wisdom. But you’re going to have to read it to find out…

Contributors to this post come from the following collection of seasoned real estate and mortgage bloggers: +Luke Skar, +Lynn Pineda, +Bill Gassett, +Kevin Vitali, +Kyle Hiscock and +Xavier De Buck.

What Should You Do When Buying or Selling a Home With Unpermitted Work?
Buying or selling a home without permits for work where they were required is risky.

From a sellers perspective if you knowingly misrepresented the fact you did work where a permit was required you could get sued.

From a buyers perspective, you will be taking on all the risks of owning a home where work has been done with no permits.

In the latest article at Maximum Real Estate Exposure, I take a deep dive into your options as both a buyer and seller.

Take a look at the tips along with helpful contributions from +John Cunningham eXp Realty, +Jeff Nelson, +Sharon Paxson, +Kyle Hiscock and +Xavier De Buck.
