Re: How many are there FSBO websites ??

Re: Realtors - remember there's always spell check!!!

I have seen a lot of listings where a Realtor needs to do basic math as well. Listings for acreage where the dimensions of the property are NO where close to number of acres listed . Yet when they calculate their commission bet it is not by a penny.

Re: Young people ....what advice to give them?

I already told my 26 year old nephew that he should NOT try to live on a champagne lifestyle if he only makes a beer income. I also told him to invest in real estate rental market in areas that is cheap to own in even though he would never want to live there like some of the small towns in Saskatche...

Re: How to find motivated sellers?

With some motivated sellers they will put ads on kijiji,craigslist,usedeverywhere and some of the other internet sites where you can list for free to test out the market before actually listing with an agent. As far as it goes for good deals depends on what you are looking for the best deals are usu...

Re: 3 Million Dollar Teardown

I could buy almost 80 acres with a new 4400 sq.ft. house for less than half of that 3 million. What a waste.

Re: Are REALTORS GREEDY ??

I had my property listed with two real estate agents and twice absolutely NO showings . I listed as FSBO and had 6 showings by internet sites like Kijiji, craigslist and used everywhere. so it is not a matter of the commission.

Re: Are REALTORS GREEDY ??

My problem with finding a "good real estate " agent is that i live in SMALL TOWN BC. not in the bubble of Vancouver. Prices here do NOT fluctuate $50,000- $100,000 on a given property. I was asking a price that was $10,000 below the assessment value. So if your car is worth $20,000 would you sell it...
