Here are 3 good reasons not to allow yourself to fall into this mentality. 1… Because Life Is Far Too Short To Spend Worrying About What Other People Think Why would you forsake your happiness to meet other people’s standards when you don’t even agree with what their standards are?   2… Because Most People Judge Everyone, Regardless Of How Good Their Choices Are I almost…

Here are some highlights: 90% of consumers did online research before they bought their last home. 42% of buyers found the…

1. “We can have my wife sign the lease. Her credit is OK.” 2. “Why do you need our credit reports? That doesn’t tell you what good people we are.” 3. “We’re moving because our landlord is a jerk.” 4. “You won’t need a security deposit with us. We’ll take good care of your home.” 5. “I’m an attorney and more than qualified to rent your house. By the way, I found 3 illegal questions in your rental application.” 6. “Wait till you see the place when we’re done with it. You won’t recognize it.” 7. “What is your policy…
