Kathy Hellberg asked:
Value of the house at the time of death for income tax purposes according to her accountant. Why would someone need this if you are allowed to inherit? Who would do this kind of appraisal?

Keep the house as is with three bedrooms; that way it's much more appealing to a much larger pool of potential buyers...

Typically it should take 90 days. Other factors play into this which can cause the selling period to
take longer. Some of the causes are: price, condition of home and seller's motivation. Hope this
answers your question.

Listing with an agent will give you the most exposure and the most
for your money. With a CMA report can tell us the best clue of what your
home is really valued at the current market.

Most sellers chose agent they feel conferrable with. Interview a
few agent and ask them all the right question. Part of the work is
trust and discloser when they work for you.

Take a look at your contract, there is an on or about closing date on the contract. The buyers/sellers have 30 days from that date to close before either party is in violation of the contract. For an answer more specific to your situation you should consult with your attorney or REALTOR. ... more

Sally and Jeanne have provided great responses to your question.
It would be worth adding that if I had spent $25,000 in order to append a train of letters after my name I MUST defend my choice or admit to being foolish.
Such designations, or instance CDPE, allow an real estate professional to market themselves as certified distressed property specialists. "I'm a specialists 'cause I paid for these here letters." And every year the agent gets to pay a little more to keep the letters sparking and bright.
The reality is, if you want a distressed property specialist, you need to find an agent who has successfully executed contracts and negotiations for buyers and sellers. As Jeanne suggested, the proof is in the results. PERIOD.
To suggest there is any validity in the alphabet train, one must confront the many redundant designations. Now which is better, CDPD or SFR? The alphabet train, for the most part, is a successful marketing ploy to separate agents from their money and feeds the egos of real estate people. The money is made by these organizations. Egos and guilt are very expensive travel companions.
Please don't confuse my comments and think the alphabet train is necessarily detrimental. It just isn't beneficial, in any way, to a home buyer or home seller.
Ask, 'What deals have you closed the last six months?" Then follow the bread crumbs.

Best of success to you,
