4. Relocating ? Relocating?  Do you desire to buy a new or second home to escape the cold weather four to six months of each year?  If you answered yes to these questions, relocation can be a hair-raising experience.  A roller coaster of emotions from choosing the right agent, to finding the right place at the right price and terms, to securing the loan if need be, to moving in.  To make matters worse, there is much misinformation and disingenuous people in real estate.  For example, there is an old saying in Florida, “If you live in Florida and do not know a friend in the real estate business you don’t have any friends!”  It seems as though everybody and their brother (or sister!) is an agent or has a relative who is one! It makes sense to become completely informed before relocating ...

1ARE ALL REALTORS® ALIKE? No. There are four types of Realtors: Seller Agents, Exclusive Buyer Agents (or Brokers), Dual Agents (including non-exclusive Buyer Agents), and Transaction Brokers.  1. SELLER AGENTS - list property and represent the seller.
