I think it's worth a shot. Rental markets are different in various parts of the country - some areas and systems work well with Realtors, others do not (different set of resources for rentals). The ones that work well are where the MLS system(s) take rentals and Realtors work that segment of business. Call and talk to a Realtor or get a referral for a good Realtor from a friend and see where the conversation leads you - worse case scenario is that the Realtor can lead you in the proper direction. Hope this helps! Cheers.... more
They say there is a buyer for everything. Just expect your resale to be a little longer to sell and usually at a more discounted price then other homes in the neighborhood. There is always a buyer who doesn't mind living next to the railroad tracks it's just a smaller pool of the market.... more
It appears phase 1 has been sold which is a good sign. The mid 200's price point is a healthy one in this local market. It would be important that this is FHA approved. How does this hold up to other new construction in the area? Is this a 5+ year purchase or is there a possibility you would move again? Get in touch and we can examine further if this makes sense for you.

Good Morning Anna,
Have a talk with the REALTOR representing you, there may be some more facts needed in order to make a proper assessment. Also you can go to City Hall and research who has the deed for this property.

It depends on the listing price versus what the other properties sold for. Obviously, in the current market, most properties sell around 90 to 95 percent (on average) to the listing price, depending on the area. However, it is not uncommon for a property to be UNDERLISTED, either because the house is priced to sell super fast, or sometimes the realtor and/or the seller will simply by mistake underlist the property. In that case, placing a full price offer is not foolish at all. In fact, in those cases, typically the offer that will be accepted will end up being ABOVE the asking price.
The flip side would be if a house has been on the market for a month or two (or obviously longer) and making a full price offer. That might be a little foolish : )
Hope that helps ! Good luck. If I knew more info, I could answer the question more specifically.

I made the mistake of doing the "dual-agent" sale once before and I'll never do it again. I never got the feeling that I had someone working "for me."
Today, you need a junk yard dog of a buyers agent - and the sellers' agent isn't going to be that for you.
There are a lot of hungry agents out there. Act accordingly.... more
Unless you signed some type of agreement where you agreed to pay a commision to the"buyer" agent you should not have a fee to pay. All commissions are usually paid by the seller never by the buyer. Are you sure that the .5% fee is not for something else look on the good faith estimate HUD1 sheet that you should have received. it should explain all the charges that are involved in purchasing the home.
Also talk to the agents Broker ask him what this fee is about.
Hope this helps

It depends on if your realtor was aware of the special taxes, according to California law failure to properly disclose this information at the time of sale can make the seller liable to financial and other repercussions, so if the seller had informed your agent of these taxes and then never disclosed them to you, you would have to be able to prove he received them from the seller and then never gave it to you..... more
If the agent is not working with you and there has been a lapse in time. Or for some reason they did not do something they should have.
Are you having a bad experience? Could you give us more details or is this a general question?
