Renters are also struggling with soaring rent prices and people outbidding each other because of the increase in rent applications.
With all of this in mind, whose brain better to pick about this topic than the experts themselves? Real estate agents of the BuzzFeed Community, I'm asking: What are some of the juiciest secrets about your job that people have no idea about? And what are some real estate tips that are important for people to know right now?
Maybe when you're working with people who are selling their house, you know the best way to photograph it to make it look desirable.
Perhaps as a relator, you have to take certain precautions because it's more of a dangerous job than people realize since you're essentially meeting up with strangers all the time.
Or maybe you've witnessed one too many nosy people snooping through a seller's personal belongings during an open house, and now you advise your clients to install cameras in their house when they are in the selling process.
