Well, my company says we will close on time, and if we don't and it is our fault, we will pay your mortgage for you until it closes. (up to $215 a day)

If you are buying a house somewhere else a delay on the close of your house can cause major problems. A lot of lenders say they will close fast, we guarantee it.

Here's the HONEST answer on why your home is not selling & it is only partially due to available financing for buyers.

1. Since you first listed your home interest rates have jumped & this is causing less buyers to be able to qualify for your home as they would have prior to the end of May.

3. The commission you're offering to Realtors who would be wanting to show your home to their buyer clients is Unsatisfactory. It should be a MINIMUM of 2.5%. Bumping that up, alone, will help you sell your home for a better price. Not 2% & No Flat Fee offerings.

4. Your constant price fluctuations show buyer agents that you are not serious to sell &/or you're just difficult to work with & that is verified through the commission being offered. And since your home has not sold in 4mos in this HOT market, there's 1 main answer to that. You're OverPriced for the inferior upgrades of comps & general presentation, leading to #5.

5. The photography is bad, in fact all the pictures were taken from the previous listing when you bought the condo in 2010. Seriously, take new pictures & Hire a professional photographer to present your home better to the market. We all know they're re-used photos due to the "SoCal MLS" watermark.

6. Measure your unit, it's highly frustrating to buyer agents when square footage is "estimated" or "per seller", just have it professionally measured & market it as "taped".

7. Take the Unit # of 118 off of the address in the MLS it's unnecessary & makes it appear inferior to buyers unfamiliar with this neighborhood.

Fix the above items & when you have a properly priced home that is presented correctly & where commission to buyer agents is fair, it will sell.

Hello Khademi,

Thanks for the inquiry here in Trulia.
All though I'm a Realtor, I have over 10 years as a Banker. There are many, many options for financing for buyers. As long as you've had a job in the same line of business for 2 years, can supply your tax returns, 2months of bank statements, paycheck stubs etc, you have a lot of available Loan programs. Conventional 3%, 5%, 10%, 20% or more as a down payment, there is FHA loans with as little as 3.5% down payment. You could offer sellers financing, etc...All of these just depend on the purchase price of the subject property.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
You can either text/call/email me.


P.S. check out my profile here on Trulia you can see what people are saying about me.

Hi Khademi,

Are you trying to find out the market value of your house? I can help you with that. This is a great market for sellers as inventory is low and this gives sellers the advantage of choosing the best offer. I can help you set up a plan and give your house the exposure it needs and market it to sell for top dollar.

I want to help you and I look forward to working with you.
