My suggestion to those listing or thinking of listing with me are first and foremost, don't spend anything on the home that will not bring back the same or more money. The cheapest things are the first things to do. Clean the front yard, water the grass, add color and freshen up the look of the front entry to the home. The first impression is street appeal and this is the focal point that will allow a potential buyer to determine whether they will have an open mind as they view the rest of the home. Declutter, clean and remove excessive furniture. The garage is a selling point but storing extra items there is better than making the home look small. No Pet Smell in the home is mandatory. Showing the home with as much light as possible is also a cheap fix. It's too late to remodel so make due with the space that is now in the home. Paint and carpet are expensive and only needed if the home has been run down. Call, text or email to meet to discuss listing a home in Valencia, Stevenson Ranch, Santa Clarita Valley and Santa Clarita, California!... more
Things are moving and the market is active right now. I can't speak for your exact project, but if the prices are starting to high and not reducing far enough, they won't sell. If you send me your address, I can give you a better idea of whats going on. In general condos and other lower priced homes are the most active in today's market. You can sell your home!

Yes I have been very successful doing exactly that. It requires that they resubmit the file for a new HAFA approval, but a good AM can help walk you through it. It depends on who the bank is and what the rest of the file is. Call me anytime and I can help you. I am very good at fixing exactly these kind of problems, but I need more information.

A really great Realtor is a really great Realtor no matter how much they charge for their services. Most professionals earn business based upon their skills and reputation. I would be skeptial of anyone that needs to work for a third the price. Seems like they may turn out to be too lazy to earn their clients so they dod the simpliest thing and buy business!

Without many details as to your agreement with your siblings, etc., --your best source of advice is an attorney who specializes in real estate--consider the services for all related paperwork and fees that may be applicable to you, based on the agreement you have with your siblings.... more
If you have no recommendations from friends, family, co-workers, etc., why not contact a few different realty offices, interview a couple of agents in person and choose the one you like best. Choose your agent with care.... more
No one on this forum can legally tell you anything other than to advise you to pay your obligations. However, I CAN tell you that many homeowners in your situation choose NOT to make the payments for their own reasons. I am not in any way telling you not to make your payments: I am simply reporting what some others have done in a similar situation. This is in no way a recommendation, suggestion or declaration of any kind. This answer does not constitute a legal response of any kind.... more
If you know the actual market value and the true payoff, then contacting an investor is often the cleanest, fastest way to sell. Let me know if you need help locating an investor as I have contacts across the nation.
