Since he contacted me via this site, I wanted to ask this site for some options on how to report him. Is there something I can do beyond contacting the larger(local) lender he works for?</div></div></div></div><br \><br \>9 replies Wed, 05 Aug 2015 19:18:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-was-contacted-via-this-site-by-an-inappropriate-and-unprofessional-lender-How-do-I-report-him/598868/ 2015-08-05T19:18:00Z How do real estate attorneys base there fees http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-real-estate-attorneys-base-there-fees/572007/ 5 replies Mon, 12 Jan 2015 19:40:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-real-estate-attorneys-base-there-fees/572007/ 2015-01-12T19:40:00Z Do any broker companies offer their contracts in a different language? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Do-any-broker-companies-offer-their-contracts-in-a-different-language/567723/ I would like to know if there are companies that offer their Spanish speaking clients the contracts written in Spanish.<br \><br \>1 reply Mon, 24 Nov 2014 18:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Do-any-broker-companies-offer-their-contracts-in-a-different-language/567723/ 2014-11-24T18:39:00Z How do i post an open house on Zillow? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-i-post-an-open-house-on-Zillow/545763/ 1407 Ensenada dr.

Make sure all animals and owners are out of the frame before taking the shot<br/><br/>2. Home buyers are not looking for a thrift store, clear out any dirty laundry before taking the picture<br/><br/>3. If there is not enough light, then go back and take the pictures when there is<br/><br/>4. Running while taking pictures causes them to be blurry, don't do it<br/><br/>5. Often times, pointing the camera directly at the sun will cause the picture to be washed out<br/><br/>6. Sideways pictures may cause neck injuries, rotate the picture in Microsoft Paint</p></div><br \><br \>7 replies Tue, 08 Oct 2013 19:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Realtors-please-take-good-pictures-of-your-listings/514617/ 2013-10-08T19:50:00Z Is A New Real Estate Bubble Forming? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-A-New-Real-Estate-Bubble-Forming/484216/ <strong>I</strong>n many of today's local markets we are witnessing a surge in property prices in the double digits.

My husband had lost his job in June 2010 which was the reason for the short sale. We both had excellent credit (800) prior to the short sale. When we closed we were 120 days late. Our scores after the short sale settled in the Mid 700s which is still excellent. When would we be able to get another mortgage? We hate renting and are anxious to get settled again. My husband is working again (we moved to Orlando for his new job) and I have been working for the same firm for 2 and a half years&nbsp;and have received a promotion since the short sale.
