Thanks for the question. I tell my clients who have concerns about safety to check with the local law enforcement authority in the area where they are looking to live. We are all going to have different degrees of comfort levels in varying areas of any town. So do some simple research and decide whether the area you are looking in is the right fit for you.... more
What usually happens is they verbally accept an offer but the listing agent can not put it in pending status until it is fully executed which can take some time.

There should be no suprises....is your agent providing you with customer feedback? This is the best way for owners to get an accurate feel for what the public is thinking about their property.
Price, location, appeal, and visibility are four very important factors in selling. It may be time for you to sit down with your agent and have them provide you with their understanding of why the home hasn't sold and what their recommendations are to obtain offers.
Very basic real estate guidelines: no showings....lower the price. showings but no offers.....lower the price, offers but none acceptable, lower the price........
There are a lot of things that go into your Credit Score:
First of all, you should know that there are programs that do not use the Credit Score, but rather use your Income to Debt ratio: If you have few bills and enough income, you may still be able to do something.
Particularly with the prices we have here now.
I would want to put you in touch with a good Mortgage person and see what they say. They could also get into details about rebuilding your credit.
If you want more, contact me. Happy to help.
