Welcome to today's open thread. We have real estate agent/industry insider Scott Saghirian on hand to answer your questions. Not only has he been an agent for more than the past ten years but he's also the Manager of Client and Association Alliances for MRIS (the local multiple listing service). So drop by the comment section to see what he has to say and if you've got a question yourself add it to the list! You stay anonymous, but if you're still feeling shy then send it in to our tipline and we'll post it on your behalf.
Update (12pm): Thanks to everyone who sent in questions and huge thanks to Scott for answering them. We've wrapped things up for today, but if you still have a question send it in to the inbox and we'll do this again soon.
