  1. About financing – if the person is ‘self-employed’. If so, for more or less than 2 years. If less, most lending institutions WILL NOT approve a mortgage. Learned this one the hard way…

  2. I think you only left one off the list……. Are you currently working with another agent?

    Be well joe. Thanks for the tips….

  3. Genuinely good thanks, I do believe your trusty audience would probably want a great deal more blog posts of this nature maintain the good hard work.
