Yes, some good and some bad. You have to talk to them and ask exactly what they do and see if they put it in writing. We have 2 programs for sellers. 1. 3-3.5% commission and $500 and a flat 5%. We've never had a bad review and are always happy to give ask past clients to speak with potential clients and have had no issues. Look around, I feel the local brokers do the best job as they know the true market and how to handle objections on negotiations.

Hello - As a real estate agent based in Los Angeles, CA, I highly recommend continuing showings until the Buyer has removed ALL contingencies. That includes all inspection contingencies, loan contingencies, and releasing their deposit to you (the Seller).

In this market, it is very common that you will end up with a legitimate backup offer. Your agent should explain the different scenarios to you, and the options you have when you receive a Back-up offer.

It depends what your listing contract states and what you negotiated before signing it. If you did not ask for a discount if finding a buyer, you may be paying the full commission.

You can not pay a commission to a person that is not licensed. Commissions are paid to the Company not directly to a Salesperson.

Jim Olive answered:
Some of the strongest "retirement" investments have included real estate, so using your "retirement" money is not necessarily a bad idea, as long as you've thought about all the angles (ie: do you plan to live in this new home when you retire, in which case it might not be the best plan, because you will want to get your equity back out to live on in retirement).

I'm not sure using tax-protected funds will really protect you from your lender either way (whether on your new home or your old). Probably the best bet is to stay put (if you can) and wait/hope for the value of the home to increase, which is what they all seem to be doing right now. Not sure how long (if ever) it will take, but one way or another you're going to have to pay the piper (whether it is with the credit ding of a short sale or the lender coming after you for the amount owed after the dust settles), and the best way to minimize that cost is to wait it out as long as you can.

If you can't stay put, perhaps you can rent out the house to cover some/all of the costs while you wait out the market, but that will mean less ability to buy in the new location.

Refinancing would be a critical piece of any plan to hold the property, as you can bring your monthly costs way down, making it easier to hold on until the market rebounds. Best of luck...

You can take her off the deed using an attorney. You both have to agree to this and both have to sign off on the deed.

There are many factors that go into pricing a home. How many bedroom are in each unit, are the kitchen and bathrooms updated. These are just a couple of factors as well as overall condition which you say is fair. If you would like I can preview your home and do an complete market analysis on it for you.

Michele Brown-Lowe answered:
Hi
I am a Real Estate Agent and of course agents would suggest that you choose a short sale. Another option is for you to try to get a Loan Modificaton. Obama signed a bill into action that is called the Making Homes Affordable Program, where they the bank takes in consideraton the change in household income and tries to see if they can lower your payments with the surplus that is left over after they deduct the expense from your income. You can go to your bank websit and see if you are elligible. Then follow the directions after that. If further information is needed, feel free to contact me at catlowe845@hotmail.com or michele.brown-lowe@realestate.com. This email will change at the end of the week. I will be changing brokers, so used the other email if you need to contact me after friday. Good Luck. Michele ... more

Hi Kay:

In any situation, things come up and delays happen. Sometimes lending, appraisal and title work can get done in 2 weeks sometimes you need 3 months. Every transaction is unique. I hope your situation has resolved and you are now settled.

Hi, It will depend on the bank holding the lien and what you are able to negotiate with them. I would speak to your lender, the more you are in communication the better.
