Seller and buyer beware: This is regarding any and all relo transactions. Not Company specific, the reason why is that there are no checks and balances. The real estate associations need to establish some form of accountability. The way Corp relo companies act recklessly and further influencing contracted agents needs to stop. The relocation companies are all different so do research and protect yourself. Ask what inspections were done on property. If the owner of home or relocation company did their own inspections- get a 2nd opinion always. Ask to see the contracts they have in place should something go wrong. They act like they will buy and sell your home hassle free but if there is a problem you are slapped with a lawsuit. They Wash their hands of it completely and you are in a hellacious mess. Biggest take away: Extreme Caution if buying a home that is being sold by a Corp relocation company, any problems with house they will go away and leave you hanging with a problem that can't be undone due to contract issues. Guess what? Employees selling their homes through relocation are actually incentived by their employer to sell their home in the shortest period of time for the biggest cash bonus. That means they are incentivized to possibly fib (being polite) regarding condition of home, this can leave you with huge damage because you are locked into a contract that you can't get out of due to relo company saying "not our fault". Ask your employers what is their responsibility vs what relo responsibility is, you don't want to get stuck with two big companies not taking responsibility. Ask them what protection or safety net you have working with a relo company whether you are buyer or seller. Ask that your real estate agent is trained to Educate you as seller or buyer of the risks. There are many. Lastly Do NOT sign contract or sign relo waiver whether you are a seller or buyer without an attorney review. There, unfortunately, are zero checks and balances which puts innocent people in danger. Things need to change. We aren't selling used tires folks. This recklessness can impact lives. ... more

Of course they are. They are keep supply low, so they can keep the demand and prices high. My agent told me they're still trying to sell homes from the 08 crash, but the banks won't release them all at once. ... more

Relocation companies do not sell houses, they refer sellers and buyers to specific realtors for a fee.

You would probably need to find out the current value and then back out the inflation for the last 4 years. Also, you could find an agent to look up what a similiar property sold for in your neighborhood back then.

THE real reason why you can't get them to work with you is because it's all a joke really. I have tried to do this for months an it's said to say the Banks CEO should check there inventory. Then ask the Ass manager why in Gods name are they holding on to these homes that has been vacant for years . when some poor person who are in need of a home let them buy the home. If the market is so good why hold on to these home sale them. I am so sick of hearing about low ball offers when they refuse our offer this is what they do The REO department is a joke they all pass these home along to there friends who are investers an then put a price on these homes thats to high. No one end up with the homes they just sets empty for months or years It's time we all get educated when a home set empty for a long time there is damages that gose unnoticed for years because no one is there to repair them but who gets stuck with the home problem is the poor person who buy the home do they really fix all the damages? ... more
