Give credit where credit is due. It appears that your cut and paste came from an article written by Lender Diane Beaumont on Active Rain.

Posting without citing the source is not right. Someone else took their valuable time to create that original content, the least you can do is give them proper credit.

Actually I hire a company to write these blog posts for me and many people get the same article as I'm sure Diane get's the same ones from the same company.  We are all trying to be helpful on these posts so please be professional.

If I misspoke, I sincerely apologize. Ms. Beaumont's blog said that "5 Quick Tips To Get A Better Price On Your Home Purchase was written by Diane Beaumont." so if she did not write the article perhaps she misspoke.

Better yet, hire a Realtor to do all of this for you:) 

Most First Time buyers don't realize that all agent commissions are paid by the seller. I also feel this article misleads some buyers who are in a strong market because it can lead to disappointment and a lot of frustration, not to mention valuable time.
