  1. Buying a house without realtor

    Be aware of friendly Realtors introducing you to an advertised property you can find yourself online and expecting a fee for the reading skills. I have also noticed a few asking for proof of you having the deposit and income quoting German law requirements re money laundering.  If I did require one I would stay away from an agent like that. So that is half of your interested buyers walking away. I feel the information is private and the banks and  tax office are welcome to look all they want, but not a Realtor just so I can view a property. 
  2. Am I missing something?

    Have you considered a will yet? Maybe she is worried the daughter gets the bed and she ends up on the floor?  I'm also looking forward to this day and the complications we never saw coming when we were young.   
  3. I normally pay DHL $30 from China express for shipping documents 7 days or less, they cannot guarantee next day and yes I have sat on a plane 7 hours later for a time sensitive part from China $1500 Euros when I all ready had a visa passport etc set up.  You have no chance these days unless flying business, I have even considered a bike ride.
