Did you sign an agency agreement when you made the offer? Most likely you did, the question is for what time period was on the document. That locks you into -- THE COMPANY - Not an agent in the company. Dual agency is just that - the agency and it is usually misstated as dual agent. You need to go the the office boss - they are called the Broker or Broker in Charge or Principal Broker and ask to have another agent represent you. Ask for Designated Agency which means you will have your agent and that agent then works for you and not the seller.
If you signed no document for agency in your offer, then you can select any other agent in another company office to be your agent.
These homes are listed and so you can't act as your own agent, if you were to do that the listing agent would get both side of the commission just as they would if you had the dual agency thing going. If you are trying to offer less by reducing the commission the seller pays because you have no agent, it don't work that way and won't help you.
Actually dual agency is not all that bad of a thing and another agent often can not make a seller sell. Sellers are like the horse you lead to water but can't make them drink, so another agent usually does not have more magic up their sleeve. In fact, the listing agent can reduce their commission saving the seller money if they are the only agent involved.

Hi, if you intend to "live" in it then it's not an investment property. Not if you plan to stay there for at least 6 months.. On the other hand the loan size is something that'll be difficult for anyone. That's unless you call one of the retail banks ask them about a line of credit. Trouble is, for the line of credit, I'm sure they'll want 720 credit. You score would otherwise be fine for an FHA purchase. It's the loan size that we'd all have troubles making sure we're under the high cost loan thresholds (Section 32). If you'd like advice on how to get your scores up, I'd be happy to help.

Schools can be an excellent venue for starting a church. You can rent as much space as you need or as little as you need. I would suggest calling around to some of the schools in your area. I would also recommend high schools first, junior highs second, and elementary schools third. Research has shown that churches that start in high schools tend to grow faster and larger than in the schools designed for younger students.... more

Since you plan on living in it for two years, you will be able to use a primary residence mortgage for the house. This will allow you to avoid an investment property loan that can require a higher rate and down payment. A score of 620 will allow you to qualify for loans such as a conventional or FHA which both have great benefits. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a lender directly so we can speak with you and understand your situation and finances. I would be glad to speak with you to help you get the loan that you need for this home. So if you have any further questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me.

Cincy rents is very unresponsive to any requests/comments/complaints. Pretty much anything you need. I Hope you don't have a 9-5 job because you'll spend your workday following up with them because they wont do it themselves. They will tell you they will be there Monday. It will be Friday. No calls, no updates, nothing. You call and they say "We are aware of it." Really? Because that doesn't mean anything. Then fix it. Don't take anything they say in regards with the lease or move in, and think they will keep there word.
We moved in and the house was a disaster. Paint was bad, dirty, etc. They had said all of this would be fixed. Never was.
Maintenance calls in sick every other day. Record high of available sick days.
Craig - outside of meeting you at the showing. Worthless.
Fatima - same.
Tiffany - not exactly sure what she does because she doesn't manage because those she manages don't do anything.
Hopefully this will guide you away, or at least give you a heads up not to expect any service from them.... more
