how to get the website to stick to what acreage I wanted?

Answer

If you are searching for homes in Lexington, you can go directly to the LBAR (Local MLS) site. (Lexington Bluegrass Association of Realtors ) and search homes by acreage. (PS I sell in Northern Kentucky about 75 miles north near Cincinnati, I just know about their website.)

Can't login using Facebook, again

Answer

I'm having the same issue! I'm trying to put an app on my Facebook page, and when I click "log in" a widow pops up momentarily and then nothing. I'm on a PC and I tried Chrome and IE.

Directed towards buyers and sellers: WHAT ARE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS TO YOU IN CHOOSING A REALTOR?

Answer

SoCal, you're post insinuated that Realtors are not also Buyers and Sellers. We are. And that they were excluded from the Q. And the Q is like you said, unoriginal, so A) it still caught my eye b/c it was a recent post during the time I was scanning Qs; and as a pro, wanted to view what the answers were (b/c like Jay, I'm a listener/learner) and B) since there weren't any "genuine" answers/posts, figured I would both answer Jay's Q honestly as a "Buyer/Seller" myself, and in response to your wisecrack--that the Q begs for a salespitch. Some answer is better than none. Who wants to post Q's and have it go into cyberspace unnoticed.

Answer

This one is for SoCal :)  As a Realtor, I may one day buy a home across the river (Ohio) where I am not licensed. Or a vacation home in Florida, etc. And I would use an agent  (would not feel comfortable even as an agent buying without one.)  And  I would look for someone who worked full time, including evenings & weekends--available to me, answered my calls, texts, &/or emails. Someone who had vast knowledge of the areas that I was interested in. And someone I liked, trusted, and felt comfortable with.

To Stage or Not To Stage?

Answer

Every listing of ours that has used our home stager's services, (even if its just pre-packing and basic clean-up, and moving some of their furniture around), has sold in a short amount of time. These were not really "Staged" in the way you think of (not like a model home with fake food and drinks, just cleaned up and presented well.) I think it is very helpful and worth the money! Its like detailing a car before you sell it. Shorter days on market.

In hopes you can help!!

Answer

If they do not wish to move, and if they have equity and if they are over 62yrs old...they could do a Reverse Mortgage, with cash back for repairs, and live in the home with no monthly payments until they die or choose to sell. They can use the money back to fix up the home, then sell in a few years when the market turns.

all my listings disappeared

Answer

All my postlets are always updated/refreshed. Rarely let them expire before catching it. Also our local MLS board syndicates to zillow and others. I think it has something to do with them charging now? New "rules?"
