Because seller financing is uncommon, the buyer and seller would be wise to each consult financial and legal experts who understand how it works before entering into such a transaction. These experts should look out for their clients' best interests and guide them through the process.

Hey Hm50420,

There are so many variables and it's based on your situation and what you are looking for. There isn't a lot of inventory at the moment because it's the winter time and properties are starting to go back on to the market.

What I would wondering would be:
- How much could you afford?
- What type of property are you looking for?
- What's your goal in a few years and what's your situation like?

I lived in the area my whole life and I can definitely help you. You can reach out to me at (415) 890-6451 or You can also ook me up on google and look for Gi'angelo Bautista at Vanguard Properties.

The listing has expired! What do I need to tell you people to take them off? I can't even edit my own home. This is completely ridiculous!

So good to have you coming back to SoCal, I would recommend moving to Eastlake/Chula Vista area. The area is really renovating and becoming a hot area for families and somewhere I could see you teaching at one of their many prestigious schools.

Please call me directly if you have any questions about financing options when making your move!

Look forward to hearing from you,

Bottom line: if you have the time and energy, using Hauseit is a no-brainer. You can pay yourself tens of thousands of dollars by saving commission on a broker.

If you're selling your property in NYC, you'll be doing all of the hard work anyway - cleaning and staging the property so that's ready for photography and open houses. You know the property better than anyone and can talk it up. But if you hire a broker, you're out 6% and the alignment of interests are terrible - they want a sale at any price, not at the right price for you.

With Hauseit, you can list for less than $1000. That's the listing itself, photography, and a floorplan - everything you need. Once the listing hits the MLS and StreetEasy, all the buyers' brokers see it immediately and you'll get inbound requests from brokers AND un-attached, individual buyers. If you're lucky enough to find an un-attached buyer (no buyer's broker), you pay 0% commission.

If you have the energy to handle showings and open houses on your own, you can pay yourself tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars for the effort. For me, it was absolutely worth it and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

My personal experience: I had two offers within a week, no brokers involved, and saved all 6%. We had tons of inquiries from buyers' brokers, so the listing got the right exposure and didn't suffer any "FSBO stigma."

Hello Michael, are you meaning in an apt you are currently renting? If so you should notify the landlord to have it taken care of. Are you looking for another rental?
