Even the OC Register is <a rel="nofollow" href="http://lansner.ocregister.com/2012/07/05/experts-bullish-on-housing-this-year/164293/?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Lansner+%28Lansner+on+Real+Estate%29">acknowledging the changing conditions</a>. So, buyers must compete in&nbsp;more ways than just price&nbsp;~ you must consider all the sellers' needs and be open to accomodating the sellers in every way. This begins with submitting a clear and complete offer package to show you and your agent are organized and&nbsp;it continues throughout negotiations ~ understand sellers are people, too, and they need to be comfortable and confident you and your agent can close the deal.</p><br \><br \>2 replies Sat, 07 Jul 2012 01:19:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buyers-Must-Compete-Differently/449975/ 2012-07-07T01:19:00Z honest feedback on realtors is blocked http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/honest-feedback-on-realtors-is-blocked/440436/ i had given honest but negative feedback on a realtor. &nbsp;I checked several weeks later and found that Zillow blocks anything but positive reviews.<br \><br \>1 reply Thu, 26 Apr 2012 04:35:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/honest-feedback-on-realtors-is-blocked/440436/ 2012-04-26T04:35:00Z Where can I find a private money investor. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-can-I-find-a-private-money-investor/332092/ Where can I find a private money investor to <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">loan</a> me money (to be held in trust) to rehab a property and sell for a profit?&nbsp;<br \><br \>8 replies Tue, 09 Mar 2010 00:00:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-can-I-find-a-private-money-investor/332092/ 2010-03-09T00:00:00Z Is lot size really that important?! http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-lot-size-really-that-important/274080/ I'm starting to feel that lot size is not all that important- alot of people nowadays don't want large yards.. the $/sqft doesn't take it into consideration- ok which would you guys choose- I want this home to be easy to sell/make equity later on when I want to sell it.
