As the real estate industry continues to feel the recession, a new trend is helping agents and Sellers. Homeowners can now hire a live-in agent to keep their home staged and always staffed for showings. Agents can avoid the stress of having to pay a mortgage or utilities. With virtually all their housing costs erased, they can afford to stay in the real estate industry.
Live-in agents hold daily open houses and conduct businesses from kitchen tables until the homes they are living in sell. Then they move onto the next listing. Having full-time company also helps Sellers to be motivated to price their homes correctly for quick sales and to stay focused.
