Walkability Affects Home Buying and Selling

The "walkability", measured as a "walk score" can affect a property's desirability. Buyers can be influenced by their ability to walk from a home to shopping, restaurants and entertainment venues. Take a look at this infographic from the California Association of Realtors.

In today's "green" environment, a property's "walk score" should be considered.

Comment on San Francisco Real Estate Agents, Sellers, And Investors...Beware Of Michael Lecht! by Yvonne Toracca

Weve been getting a few google search results and more recent comments from this post we did a while ago about buyers out there looking to scam real estate agents. It sounds like a guy by the name of Michael Lecht is giving it a go again, so agents beware.

A couple recent comments:

Regarding Michael Lecht:

He contacted me 6+ years ago and wasted my time. He is super creepy and I fired him when an alert came out about a buyer with his name that was using multiple agents (all women). I guess he has a bad memory because I just received a voice message from him from my latest Real Estate Times ad.


Michael Lecht contacted me twice this week. I thought he seemed suspicious, so I decided to Google his name and found this site. He claimed to have found my ad in the real estate times, which I havent advertised in recently. Thanks for having this info up, very helpful!


Lets hope there are no more incidents. It goes without saying, this guy could very well use a couple different names, so just be careful.

Buyer Bewareand Agents Too!

Comment on "Why are Realtors so arrogant and such assholes?" by Renee

I cant believe I am going toprint this letter to the Editor, because, wellwere mostly a community of Realtors bringing this information to you. But, I think there may be something to gain from this little quote if we get some good comments.

Dear Editor,

I really like your blog and think it is a great resource and nice to see a Realtor trying to do something other than just sell, sell, sell, and cheer the market on. But maybe you can help me answer this question, why are Realtors so arrogant and such assholes? I mean, driving around in the bling, bling cars all the time. Constantly talking on the phone about loans, property features and what theyre worth, clients needs, etc., in the most un-private of locations (bathrooms, checkout lines, airports.) Always interupting a good conversation when the phone beeps, vibrates, or rings with I gotta take this call Is it really that important? Why do they think they are so cool? Other professions have their arrogant pricks too (attorneys, doctors, entrepreneurs), but Realtors somehow seem more obnoxious. Maybe it is the easy money you guys make. Or maybe, you all truly are a bunch of assholes. Anyway, just thought you could shed some light on the matter for me.


Justin T.

Im hoping we can gain some insight into where the disconnect often lies between Realtor-client, Realtor-public. Why is there such a negative perception placed on Realtors? I hope we can learn things like how we can better serve you during a transaction, rather than just making easy money (its never easy money by the way). How can we earn our commissions in your eyes? Things we can do during the process of buying/selling your home for you that would make a difference. Things you like to see in our advertising. Things you like at the close of a transactionthat kind of stuff.

By giving you this open forum, Im hoping youll spread the word, link to this post, and give some good feedback. The more the better.

If somebody (Justin T.) feels strongly enough to write us with this question, Im assuming he/she is not alone. So let er rip!
