Per NY State, you need to give 30 days notice in writing if there is no lease. After that, file for a court eviction. Keep all communication in writing.

The fastest & best solution is have your realtor connect with one of the Premier Agents in your area. Premier Agents pay monthly ad fees to Trulia, Zillow, etc. and these agents have personal reps with direct phone numbers. A 5 minute call to their representative can fix the listing. ... more

Usually, they ask for proof-of-funds if you've offered a cash-purchase. If you have indicated that you're getting a loan, they're usually satisfied with a copy of a pre-approval from your lender.

A loan, while waiting for your first home to sell is called a bridge loan (or interim loan), and those are a little harder to come by, and a higher interest rate than a normal loan.

If you already have a home equity line of credit (heloc), yes, you can use that to pay the $90,000... but it's highly unlikely that they'll give you a heloc when your house is already for sale.

Ignore my answer to your other question. You left out the mobile home part which makes a big difference. Is this located within a mobile home park or is the mobile home on its own land. Do you own the land underneath the home? ... more

Is this for a coop apartment, an investment property, a condo or a house? I know interest rates are higher on investment properties and coops than condos and occupied houses. It’s also a fact that credit scores determine the interest rates. ... more

Make time for a personal visit to the county Tax Assessor’s Office and verify who owns which lot, who is paying property taxes on which lot, the number of acres, etc. The property card or lot information that is on file with the county is the official and legal information. It’s possible that the bank’s lawyer does not have the correct information. When you visit the county tax office, either take pictures or get copies. Ask permission first. ... more

As a former realtor, the way Zillow, Trulia and other websites earn money is to sell ad space on all listings including FSBO’s. At the time I was a Premier Agent, Coldwell Banker had a contract with Zillow and Trulia that allowed the agents to pay $149./year (special early bird fee) to have that agent appear solo on their listings without other paid Premier Agents appearing. It was great for my listing.
On the flip side, I did receive plenty of leads (80% not qualified) from consumers who contacted me because I paid Zillow to appear as a Premier Agent.

I agree with Scott that realtors do get the shaft, but these days realtors need to accept they can’t control as much of their listings as they want.
