Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: October 2012

Just sold a Condo. Guess how many people that I can think of got paid because of the sale.?

I agree small businesses help our economy . Governor  Romney mentioned how small businesses employ people and how it helps the economy. This got me thinking of how  when an agent sells a home it  helps so many people earn some money.

It starts with the home being listed. The listing agent advertises the listing and newspapers earn some money from this.

From the time the home is under contract till settlement , there are many people who get paid

 I agree with the agents who say that no matter who becomes President, he should help improve the real estate market as it helps so many people earn a living. This is not a post about the elections.
