You should make an offer or bid immediately to secure the property;then get the home inspection once your offer is excepted. Of course, if the inspection turns up something that causes you not to then want to buy the home, you can withdraw your offer or request that the seller make repairs. You state that the sale is contingent on the outcome of the inspection. ... more

Rich Reed answered:
Hi, Rick. Agents typically work for a broker and your purchase agreement, and other agreements, are actually with the broker not the agent. When you are represented by an agent/broker a legal "Agency" is created. Some possible reasons to seek termination of Agency could be due to the broker's/agent's professional abilities or conduct. Examples could include misrepresentations or failure to disclose, lack of knowledge with an area or type of property, being non-responsive to the client by failing to be timely or return calls, disclosures of conflicts of interest, self-dealing or negotiating skills. Before you hire a new agent, you should be certain that any Agency you have with your old broker is properly terminated and you should advise your new agent of the previous purchase agreement.
Talk with your agent and your broker.
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.
Best of luck to you!

Debra Waters answered:
Within our listing contract in Tennessee it clearly denotes the amount the buyers agent will receive out of the gross commission. Read through your contract closely - Agents all have their license with a Broker (think of that person as their boss even though they are self-employed). It is either a misunderstanding or failure to disclose specifics. either way - talk it out and request (in writing) to dissolve the listing obligation if you find there was lack of disclosure. ... more

I think you created a problem for yourself. Why not try an independent investor to hold mortgage instead of a traditional bank

I am an agent- but I know that when someone wants to save the commissions and would rather not use an agent- they mean it. Call a lender, a lawyer or an appraiser directly- ask for a referral in your area. But you can also search the market within reason to your home and find similar homes and generate a price. Ultimately the realtor is guessing anyway ;) compare apples to apples and you will be on track. If you're in a subdivision- stick within the boundaries of it. Your local assessor also has public records that are available for ANYONE to view. If you want to save money then you have to do the door work- also- remember the charge for commission is NEGOTIABLE. You might be able to find an agent to do the work for you at a lesser percentage. Call around. Ask. Always ask! ... more

An online preliminary title search would be the best way to perform a title search on real estate for liens and encumbrances in an expedited time frame. Especially if there are deadlines for the online auction site purchases today. Free foreclosure activity reports are provided by U.S. Title Records which was recommended to us by Auction.com and U.S. Tax Lien association https://www.ustitlerecords.com ... more

Your search is very specific and an agent can do it best. Use the "Find An Agent" tab at the top to search by city.
Good luck!

Depending on income, you may be able to qualify for a down payment assistant loan. Check with a local lender and what programs are available in your community. I work for a non-profit that offers down payment loans that work hand in hand with Fannie Mae's Community Seconds program or Freddie Mac's Home Possible. We are able to get people into homes for as little as $500. ... more

Credit is definitely a criteria of mortgage approval so it depends upon your definition of poor. Correction...it depends on the lenders "take" of your credit so that is where you need to start. Contact a lender who will pull your credit and consider ALL factors. Hopefully you can be approved! Good luck! ... more
