Hello Ms. Lawson,

Please look over your listing agreement for the protection period. My interpretation of that clause (though I am not an attorney) is that you may not sell the property to anyone who viewed the property during the time while it was listed. You wrote here that this buyer saw the property before it was ever listed. If there is any documented proof of that, you may be OK. Of course, it would be wise to consult a real estate attorney for a legal opinion. But it sounds like you may be OK.

Should you decide to list after all, I'd welcome the opportunity to speak with you.

Hope that helps.

Good morning Ms. Reece

That really depends on the terms put forth in the Purchase and Sale Agreement. It is customary, however, for the due diligence period to commence on binding agreement date.

If my client accepted an offer today, May 23rd, with an inspection period of ten days, I would expect to have an agreement established with regard to the requested repairs by June 2nd.

Hope that helps.

The easiest way to get a real estate transaction done in a short period of time is to have your inspections done ahead of time. It costs a little money up front but can save you lots of $ if things
go sideways before or after closing. Termite inspection is pretty straightforward, maybe you will
need a few opinions if there is extensive damage. You can get free inspections but my opinion is
paying for this service may give you a more unbiased opinion.
A home inspection really gives you a lot of detail by a professional with a keen eye. Many times,
there are a lot of things you can do yourself once the report is in hand. Better to get the little things
out of the way. If there are big $ items you can then negotiate during the sale. When a buyer is making
the largest purchase of his life, don't let the little things get in the way of the sale.

Murphy Team answered:
Wow, this question did get some diverse answers. No doubt, most buyers we encounter do not choose to live near (within eye-shot) of power lines. In this business where the buyers determine what they like and our evidence (supported by many of the other answers as well) tells us that the value of a property is greatly diminished if power lines are added to the mix. We show many properties and sometimes show properties near power lines. Never sold one though. Buyers always bought somewhere else. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Emma,
As a buyer you belong there. You need to see the quality of the inspection, clearly understand the issues that come up and get direct advice from the inspector.
As a seller, I discourage it completely. Inspectors don't want to have the discussion with a defensive seller. They don't want to hear about your history with the house and the buyer, who's paying for the inspection deserves to have that time between them and the inspector.
It's against your interest as a seller to be there. Questions that come up can be addressed in the normal progression of the sale. The chances are you'll do more damage than good if you stay.
Be there as a buyer, go anywhere else as a seller.

Wolfert & Wrenn Real Estate Team answered:
Either you're not in the MLS, your in it but with incorrect information, you're priced incorrectly or the marketing is insufficient. Is the agent trying to double side the deal by bringing the buyer too? Did you agree to allow them to do dual agency? Have you googled your listing to see how and where it's showing up?

There are lots of possible reasons. I recommend you ask these questions and do some research. Then, discuss it with your agent either get satisfactory answers or hire someone who will do the right job - like me!

Pricing your correctly will bring in not only more buyers but the right buyers. There are lots of "tricks" such as allowances, bonuses, etc but ultimately, if you're not price correctly, you're going to wait longer and sell for less. I have the market stats to prove this.

Let me know if you'd like to discuss a marketing plan and pricing that will get you sold.

Wolfert & Wrenn Real Estate Team answered:
It's as easy as sticking a sign in your yard. However, I assume you want to SELL it and not just list it. That's a different story. Be prepared to spend money for marketing, repairs, staging, a lockbox, and possibly more.

Even in a hot market, there is big difference between LISTING, SELLING and CLOSING. I'd be happy to discuss these with you in more detail if you'd like to contact me.

How is the home selling process working out for you?

Most FSBO I talk to say they just got people interested in renting or doing a lease purchase. Did you have the same results?

Often, banks will request that they try the short sale route before accepting a deed in lieu anyways.

Terence Richardson answered:
Anytime you purchase before selling, you are increasing your financial burden and putting yourself in a high risk situation unless you are extremely well qualified. A few solutions would be to make sure your home is priced appropriately (biggest factor in getting a home sold) and if you can't sell (upside down) then leasing it out would be another solid option. In many cases, you can cover your mortgage payment and a little extra by renting out homes in today's market. ... more
