Use Zillow Rental Manager. Zillow and Trulia are the same company (Zillow Group), so your rental will sync to Trulia within 24 hours.

Yes you can sell your home but you will be required to pay a FIRPTA tax. Google "FIRPTA" to read about it and see what is required of you.

I assume you don't have a lease. If you had a lease, New York City law requires that you stay until your lease expires. Even with a new owner, they are required to honor all leases until the expiration date.

If you are on a month to month basis (no lease), then you need to move out quickly. Your biggest issue is rental buildings don't have 4 bedrooms. If you find one, it's rare. For 4 bedrooms, you need a single family house. There are rental buildings with 3 bedrooms BUT the number of 3 bedroom apartments is small. There are far more 1 and 2 bedroom apartments than 3 bedrooms. A house with 3 bedrooms is much easier.

There is a website (which is now owned by Zillow Group) - www.streeteasy.com This website is exclusive for New York City housing only. It has far more search criteria than Zillow or Trulia does. I did a quick search for New York City and I found plenty of rentals in Queens. Search the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Astoria, etc. It's not Brooklyn but these rentals did have 3 - 4 bedrooms and it's a private house.

What is your budget? On the StreetEasy website, I was looking at homes in Queens with 3 - 4 bedrooms for $4,000. and up. You should also look in the Bronx and Staten Island too. There are house rentals with 3 - 4 bedrooms.

From what you stated, have you thought about buying a house? If your credit score is above 620, you should meet with a lender and see if you qualify. You should look in the suburbs because single family houses in NYC is very expensive. The suburbs are cheaper.

Northside, Westside, and parts of Southside of Jacksonville are overrun by thugs and drugs from the northside and eastside (downtown) part of town, transplants from Hurricane Katrina, and Ghetto-ville of other southern states (Georgia, South and North Carolina, and Virginia). Unless you're a part of this group, I suggest you move further south closer to Saint Augustine. It's like a Zombie Apocalypse in Jacksonville, Florida and the decent neighborhoods and people are being driven out. ... more

Scott's right...nothing you can do. In my state, sellers are required to share any inspection report that they have in their possession regardless of who paid for it.

Most states require agents to disclose at your first meeting whom they represent (buyer, seller, or both). I don't blame you for being upset. If it were me, I'd terminate the contract and hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent to represent you. There are lots of good ones in CA. Visit naeba.org for a referral.

It's your decision but if you were my client, I'd advise you to pass on this one. 54% is way too high. You're young...you'll have plenty of time to buy your dream house.

ALH does build a higher quality him in Frisco than Beazer...they really aren't comparable products. I'm not a fan of Realtor bonuses...your agent is supposed to be representing your interests, not his own. I suggest you negotiate without Realtor...their bonus should be passed along to you.

She's not entitled to a commission for emailing you a list of homes. If she showed you the house, wrote an offer, etc. she would be. Be sure to hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent to represent you, not a regular buyer's agent. There's a big difference.'
