Survey Question #6: A realtor can only help me with the homes that their company has listed:
A) True 11%
B) False 84%
C) They can only help me with the properties that they are the listing agent on 5%
I've covered most of this on the other survey Q & A blog. And most of the participants got this question correct. But I still constantly hear that people are confused about this. The correct answer is FALSE. Once again, your designated realtor can assist you with ANY home on the market. That includes homes listed with other realtors, other companies and even for sale by owners. So when you see a sign and you want information, call your realtor before the number advertised for the home. Your realtor can access all of the information and your interest will be represented.
On a different note, the GoGetters have a couple charities we are currently raising money for. Please let us know if you're interested in contributing.
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We will be walking in May to raise money to help find a cure for this disease. Our niece, Myla Mistric, was born with this. It is a disease that affects the lungs and causes children and peoople to live a life of constant medical attention. Currently there is no cure and the median life span for someone with CF is 40 years. We are selling donation "certificates" for $1 each.
We are also selling raffle tickets for the Catahoula Church Fair. This is my hometown. Tickets are $2 each and the drawing will be on April 26, 2009. Prizes are as follows:
