My wife and I are both brokers and I have been licensed since 1988. We used Equator when we were doing REO's for B of A/Countrywide. We paid $400 for premium agent designation and received lots of emails notices about prospective REO listings. A year later, after responding to hundreds of notices, we have been assigned zero properties, and our REO experience is superior to most agents we know. Then they auto-charged our credit card for renewal, which we did not authorize.

BE VERY AWARE THAT THIS IS A SCAM BY EQUATOR AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANYTHING. YOU WILL SPENDING MONEY FOR NO BENEFIT WHATSOEVER.

When we went to their site do demand a refund, it was and still is down. We will be instructing our bank that this is a fraudulent charge.

It might be time to consult a real estate attorney. Bring your contract. Good luck.

Alan May answered:
Yes. Call the agent's managing broker and make your request. Bring any documentation that you have, to the conversation, and be calm and collected (not loud and angry)... I'm sure the managing broker will make sure that another agent is assigned for the balance of your transaction.

I'm very sorry you're experiencing this.

Instead of asking your question here, you need to contact your realtor, title company and lender immediately and explain your situation. Nobody online can advise you on what to do.

Barbara answered:
The dumbest part of the credit check issue to me is, if I had decent credit, I'd use the deposit money I've saved and buy a house! But... since my prior circumstances has caused me to have bad credit I have much fewer 'decent' choices of homes. Not to mention if you look at my rental history, I've never missed my rent or been behind on a utility, I just need a larger place to live for personal reasons. THAT is the 'history' I think should matter! ... more

HOA's have lower property values than single family residences without them. No one wants Big Brother looking on and dictating what you can do. Common Area Developments (CID) for example may impose rental restrictions on you and not allow you to use AirB&B to rent your extra room to bring in much needed cash. Most HOA Boards can become very controlling and even make up more rules that are not supported by your CC&R's. Nazi Board is a common term for them. They make committees to go around and spy on residents. HOA's restrict your private property rights. On the pro-side you get to enjoy swimming pools and tennis courts and not have to upkeep them, but you are paying dearly with your hard earned cash and your property rights. Also for example a subdivision with an airport may contrive to elect mostly pilots even if pilots are only 10% of the owners and vote to spend more money on the airport than is proportional and fair. Over 55 communities are well known to have over controlling boards spying on their neighbors as with Rancho Hermosa in Oceanside, they don't seem to have much else to do than be busy-bodies and interfere with privacy. If over 55 communities could be outlawed as age discriminatory which by definition they are, then the older folks brains will be healthier. At that stage in life all human development researchers agree that mentoring a younger person is what we should be doing at that stage in our lives. It keeps our brains sharp and teaching reinforces what we know, it makes us feel good to help a younger person, younger, and it helps the younger person as well. A win win. It takes a community to raise a child, and families deserve to have access to these lower priced smaller home communities. The American Dream was ruined by the previous generations. The less control we have over our private property the better, this is the wisest rule of thumb. HOA's are necessary for condominium communities and those with common areas, but the restrictions do not have to be so terrible to run them, but they usually are with so much shared liability ... more
