This morning on MOD we published the inaugural blog post of new contributor Ronald Quiroga, who's bringing his experience as a real estate journalist to the blog, with sneak peeks at properties that come to market. Some of them might be reasonable a first-time buyer to consider, some of them might just be cool/amazing/weird. But if you're anything like me (going to open houses is your idea of a good time), you'll want to look out for 'em. First up he introduces us to Erin Lolcama of Exit Realty with some basic advice on what to do and consider if you're thinking of taking the plunge. (Lolcama sold me my house last summer, and the woman can break some truth across your brain.) Go check it out.
