William asks…

Do you need a real estate license to advertise apartments online?

I am starting an online business that advertises for apartment complexes and rental homes in texas and iowa. My question is, in order to advertise for the apartments, will I need to be a licensed real estate agent? I am not selling or renting the properties, I am only providing a place for the owners/companies to advertise what they have available.

Administrator answers:

I agree with JB, since everyone uses www.craigslist.org<=what will make them go to your site when they can advertise there for free?

No, you don't have to be a real estate agent to advertise apartments, however you should know HUD's equal opportunity laws when it comes to advertising.

How to you buy apartments above store buildings?

Me and a friend are looking to buy a cute apartment and we saw a bunch of cute apartments above old stores near where we want to live. I have been trying to figure out what to do or who to talk to so I can see how much rent would be or even if there are any available. So I was wondering if anyone knew if these apartments had a certain name and how I could look them up?

Administrator answers:

You can not buy apartments, you can rent apartments, you can buy the hole building. You can buy a house, condo, townhouse, Mfg home, duplex, but you can not buy one apartment.

John asks…

How do apartment leasing offices determine rent?

I am currently looking at different apartments to move in to. I keep seeing rent per month in ranges.. For ex. 650-800 per month. How does the apartment management office determine how much rent you will pay? Is there anyway you can talk them down to a lower rent?

Administrator answers:

Many apartment complexes have different size units and different floorplans which can affect the price of the monthly rent also some apartments will rent on a month to month basis for a higher price than a long term lease. You can always try to talk them down but don’t count on it.

How can I fix the error in the sims 2 apartments?

So I’m buliding my own apartments and I can’t figure out what I’ve done wrong. I know the cheats to turn a residential to apartment base and vise versa, but when I type in the cheat to turn it to apartments, a window comes up to tell me I need to fix or revert something. The doors are placed correctly. There are no driveways. What do I do?

Administrator answers:

Are the back yards fully enclosed with no gates if you have any?

Do you have back yards in lots with foundations? They won’t work

No “secret”: bookcases that could connect to another apartment.
