"Premier Agent" is for realtors who choose to pay monthly advertising fees to Zillow or Trulia so they can featured space on listings hoping that consumers like you will call them. Once you call a Premier Agent, that agent will work hard to convince you to work with them. Agents are desperate for leads and each contact with a consumer is a lead.

"Pro" is the designation for contractors, attorneys, property management companies, landlords, lenders, etc.

No, why? Lenders across the U.S. are required to follow U.S. laws and regulations - no matter what state you are buying in. All lenders carefully review the following:

Employment & Income
Savings and Investments
Credit score and Credit history
Debt to Income Ratio
Tax Returns

All a lender wants is proof in writing that you have the financial ability to pay the mortgage loan on time every month. If something happens (job loss, medical crisis, etc.) that prevents you earning an income, do you have cash savings to pay the mortgage loan?

If you can't afford to pay the loan on time every month, yes lenders will reject you.

In NYC it's all about greed and profits. Builders are looking to save money using cheap labor, cheap materials and less outdoor space and sell it for a huge profit. The time to fight and complain was when the builder submitted building plans to the Borough of Richmond and/or City Hall in Manhattan. There had to be an open public meeting. Did you attend? Probably not. At this point, it's too late.

Going forward you need to keep up to date with open public meetings with the Borough of Richmond. Attend those meetings and the next builder / developer that wants to submit site plans for development - you will be there in person to voice your complaint. Once the builder's plans are approved, construction starts and it's too late for complaints.

There are several different companies that you can go through. I have one called Rodgers Investments that I use as my LLC where all my deals go through. Selling for cash can be extremely useful in the case of facing foreclosure or job loss. When you are facing a time crunch with selling your house and you just don't have the 3-6 months to list and sell with a realtor, or don't have the money for repairs or to pay the thousands in closing costs, it just makes sense to sell it for a discount.

Depending on the buyer, some are good and some aren't, they should only make the deal if it BENEFITS the seller somehow and everyone wins. I personally won't do a deal if it doesn't improve the seller's situation.

You can get my info at www.RodgersInvestments.Org. I have a lot of buyers nationwide and can easily give you a quote over the phone after an initial quick conversation with you. I work with a time crunch or if you need time, that's no issue either.

Hopefully you get a good answer!
