Alan May answered:
That's a "legal" question, and I'm not qualified to answer that since I'm not a lawyer.

I would think it would be difficult for someone to force you to sell, simply because they brought you your asking price. There might be other aspects of the offer that don't suit you.

However, it's possible that if you get a full-priced offer, with no contingencies, depending on the listing agreement you've signed, you might owe commission to your real estate agency. Read your agreement carefully.

I'd listen to your agent. Sign the termination notice and agree to release earnest money and move on!

Only real estate agents can list homes for sale at no charge. If you have an agent they can post if for you. Contact Trulia if you want to do FSBO - but to my understanding there is a fee involved. ... more

fringeite answered:
Thank you all for your answers. I appreciate it. I figured that if we were not entitled to a copy then she would have just said that because she answered other questions and addressed other issues, but repeatedly avoided answering that question even when it was put to her point blank.

The deal is off the table now, because we refused to entertain any more ideas from the two agents unless we had something in writing and received a copy of the appraisal--neither was forthcoming. Now I just wonder what happens with the buyer's deposit.

We are trying to Trade a house in PA for a house in TN. From what I understand you just need two lawyers to keep it legal and a title search company, and of course the bank loan.

Be serious;
do you think that anyone could make a lockbox that a determined thief couldn't break into?

they say that locks are only there to keep honest people out.

do you think that you could win a lawsuit against General Electric because of this?
and how much would it cost you?
you did have insurance?
and do you think you can blame the Realtor?

Mary Ann Schmalzle answered:
Since the names on the deed and the mortgage should be the same, some legal work needs to be done. If all parties are in agreement, then you may gift or sell your interest to your siblings. However, the lender would require the names on the mortgage to also match the deed. Depending on your lender, your siblings may be required to either assume the loan from the estate or pay off that loan and apply for a loan of their own based on qualifications. This can be completed by a Real Estate Attorney or perhaps the Attorney handling the Estate can be of service. ... more

Gillian Peterson answered:
That is a very interesting concept! I love how you're thinking outside of the box! Did you sell your home as of yet? I'm also curious, what did your Realtor think about the ideas you came up with? Is your Realtor really marketing the home with some good photos? I say this because if you're willing to give things away for showings, you obviously know your home is an easy seller! I will be sure to suggest your property to buyers looking in The Bushkill area. I wish you all the best on your home selling journey! ... more

I'd say complain to the BROKER of the agent. If it is the broker who is the problem, you need to try to get out of that contract or wait it out, then find a better broker.

Speaking strictly for myself, my husband and I had our house at 149,900 when the market was good before the bottom fell out. We are now down to 110,900 and are down as low as we can possibly go now. We are considering taking our house off the market for a little while until the market improves. With such an influx of inventory, we aren't willing to let our house go for less than what we paid for it and swallow the loss. It's not worth it for us. We are fortunate in the sense that we don't HAVE TO move, we just want to. If it means putting it off for another year or two, so be it. We have done everything we can to make our home attractive, but if no one is interested right now in buying, we will wait until they are. As disappointing as it is, we aren't willing to short-change ourselves. If we let our house go for less than 100,000, we won't be able to afford the new home we want to buy. ... more

As a resident of the area, let me just say this... if you are an outdoorsman and love the convenience of the river, the woods and hiking trails for your outdoor activities, then YES! Bushkill is great place to live. However, if you want to be closer to town, stores and conveniences, then NO it is not the place for you. When my husband and I bought up here, we didn't mind the corner market not being close by, we didn't mind that we had to drive into town to do our shopping and we still don't. Just ask yourself if "country-living" is what you want. Peace and quiet, wildlife meandering through your yard, "night sounds" and just a peaceful living. If it's not, then search the areas in and around Stroudburg within city limits. Country living is not for the faint of heart so do your research thoroughly. ... more
