I've been looking for apartments to rent on various sites and always come across a beautiful apt or house for rent listed at an absurdly low price. When I go to the details it's posted by Zumper and is false advertisement. What gives?

They’re scams. If it’s too good to be true. It probably is.

Real estate agents use this tactic to get you to work with them. “Oh that apartment was just taken! What are you looking for, what’s your budget? I have others that are similar...”

I am wondering how do you answer to "Why do you want to join company XYZ?" in a situation when you are approached by a headhunter and it is relatively small and unknown company? My answer would be, "you approached me so you tell me why I should want to join your company" but not sure they would appreciate it :D And of course I am talking about Interview 1 or pre-screening call with the headhunter, not the final interview round for which I would set up a time to prepare the answer

OK I want feedback! Not from you guys, from my staff 😜 we don't have 360 feedback at my firm.

(we are no longer in busy season, would take probably 10 minutes per staff I worked with). Questions would likely be what did I do that was most helpful as a staff, what did I do that decreased efficiency or stressed you out, what have(cont)

After getting an accepted offer my buyers agent informed me that there is an additional $595 administrative fee due to his brokerage for admin services like doc storage and office supplies that I am supposed to pay. We purchased a home last year with a different agent and company and did not have to pay this fee. Is this common practice for buyers agent to push their brokerage fees to their clients? Isn’t this why they are getting paid thousands of dollars in commissions? Any insight is helpful
