This is my 3rd time buying/selling so I feel very comfortable. The last 2 brokers I used were moronic to say the least... (not saying that every broker is). It KILLED me to hand over that 5-6% check. I had 2 appraisals done so I know the price is RIGHT. if anyone wants to see the cheesy website I made, check out www.273prospectplace.comWish us luck. :P P.S. Armchair, post your apt as many times on CL as you wish... you have to because they get LOST b/c so many people post. I will be posting my house as much, if not more. Good luck renting it!

I've been cruising craigslist for apartments this very day (now yesterday), and, Mr. Chair, you have posted the same ad at least 4 times within a 12hr span. Such a flurry of hawking is not only unnecessary, but ill-advised. You risk coming off as a tad desperate, thereby scaring off some worthy potential tenants.No doubt you've been inundated regardless. Just a thought.Good luck.

armchair_warrior wrote: damn more brokers contacted me. i thought by not selecting that dont contact me options would make those lousy brokers not bother me . i guess i should of put the words no brokers please in there too.
doctorj wrote: Maybe you could try a different strategy with them. Say that if they want to be your broker so bad, they have to pay half a month deposit up front and half a month on delivery of a tenant you like. You could even put that on your answering machine and an autoreply on your email, to save you time. Remember: leeches give up if the skin is too tough to chew through.
