Re: Seller calls me blind...

It's important to read all words. Not a check. A "$20 discount check." In other words, a discount coupon made to look like an ordinary check. Sent to Realtor. I sent discount coupons to Realtors to...

Re: Seller calls me blind...

Re: We'll financially help any member who wants to buy this nice home.

There are a lot of HOA's here that have the same restriction. The purpose is so that non-owners don't trash not only the condo and property where they are living, but the property values, as well....

I don't even need "a few OOPS." Just takes one for me.

Re: Largest inspection company explains California home inspector licensing in this v

Communicate better. Hmmm.

Stay off of the public part of InterNACHI, especially if you are going to denigrate people who want to buy a POS home for reasons which you are not privy to, or if you're...

Re: What are you thinking of adding for the new year?

Speaking of marketing, one of your comments a couple of weeks ago resulted in my IT guy and I tweaking House Key News.

The email still will have an HTML graphic look but it also will have a choice...

Re: We'll financially help any member who wants to buy this nice home.

My wise old grandmother told me I would be successful if I learned to think outside the box. I'm thinking Jim is probably pretty successful because he really is thinking outside the box. And don't...

Re: HI warranties

I'm confused, but that's nothing new.

I think you're doing a great service, and I see nothing wrong with it. Heck, I did the same thing in the 11th month of the builder's one-year-warranty, or any...

Re: Air conditioner inspection

I find age to be very factual indeed, and there is lots of research concerning average life expectancies; I find those to be factual as well.
