Not exactly a RTB prime topic, but I really need help. I am involved with a summer benefit for individuals hit by Hurricane (Superstorm) Sandy and I need help NAMING the event. Sadly, many are still undergoing hardships as insurance fell short of the funds needed to rebuild to new building codes. For Jersey peeps (and NY, PA and anyone else who wants to come....it's July 12, 2013 6pm-11pm - Save the Date) Save the Date Announcements are in the process of being created and the event needs a NAME. It's on a Friday night, on a gorgeous 17 acre estate overlooking the Navesink River. The event will be outside, housed under 3 large tents. Dress is summer chic (not formal or black tie). Food will be "dinner by the bite" via passed hors d'oeuvres and food station. There will be a live band and a dance floor under the tent. Live and silent auction. We have to come up with a NAME ASAP. Creative community folks of the real estate community..........any ideas for a great name.....help!!!! Please and thank you. I thought of Soiree at the Shore, and a local hospital used that name for their event in 2012.
Seller receives 5 multiple offers and, upon the advice of their REALTOR, returns all offer to the respective buyer agents with a date 5 days out as a deadline for 'Best and Final." On the deadline, 9 offers are presented. Seller agent contacts buyer agent to offer a counter to at least one of the offers, which is not in the spirit of a "Best and Final." What do you do if you are the buyer agent who receives the counter? You don't know if the seller agent is also countering with other buyer agents/buyers with respect to their offer.
For those of you that have Patch in your areas, does Zillow provide real estate listings? If so, for how long? Today was the first time I ever noticed a column in our local Patch titled "New Real Estate Listings". Upon opening, it states...."From our Partners at Zillow". This was new to me. Perhaps it's been around for awhile? Anyone know? Was I sleeping?
How often do you read the TOS of apps that you download? The TOS on this app states that the app may read, store, modify, and delete info about my contacts....etc. If my contacts are stored in Google Contacts vs. my device, does this app have access to my contacts? Is this or similar language common to mobile apps? Here's the copy/paste from the app's TOS: Your personal information - Read your contacts - Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your tablet, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.

Who would regulate the stager? If the stager is not a real estate licensee, I would think there was no law broken by the stager. However, an agent or broker who knew a stager repeatedly did this and did not stop it may be culpable. Not sure what liability that agent or broker might face if they were the listing agent and chose to just let it happen. i.e. repeated marketing of their listing done by a third party without the broker info. mmm... Not sure. But, I would get involved if it were my company's listing. If it was an isolated instance activity, I think no one did anything wrong.
Having a BB as an "extra phone" is like having a 3rd vehicle in the garage that is a full sized truck with a snow shovel scoop attached in front for personal use only so I could plow through any road conditions. I sure could use that tuck a few times a years in NJ, but it would not be my choice the majority of the time.
The thirst for TZ resulted from two things: 1) what we, as an industry, refused to give the consumer, and 2) what we are unable to give the consumer, or fearful to say because it may lead to misinterpretation, as a result of regulation or laws. TZ filled voids. TZ attracts eyeballs with listing data, but the consumer positive feedback about those sites results from other tools and information they find useful. The quality of the listing data at TZ has improved, but will never equal that of an MLS. MLS's are not in the business of gaining the most 'hits' to satisfy shareholders and selling advertising. TZ are public media companies. MLSs have a different primary mission. MLSs missions include quality control of data and the facilitation of shared data between members with specific attention on the revenue sharing component.
I use DBAN to wipe drives in my PC repair business. You can then resinstall the Win OS (or something like Linux) and give the computers away, or just wipe the drive and send them out for recycling. http://www.dban.org/
