Bill Nichols answered:
My mom is relocating into assisted living. She now needs to sell her home. She has a cash offer thru someone we knew in the business .. the cash offer is $60,000. The address is 1428 10th Avenue Albany, GA 31707. the house is in fair shape .. we will sell AS IS. The neighborhood has not been a great selling area for homes.
Although this offer is very tempting to her as she definitely could use the money for the expenses she will have with the assisted living, how can we determine if it is fair. She definitely does not want to go thru the long process of listing and awaiting offers. Hope you can give us some insight.

The 'buyers market' boat left the dock several years ago.
It is possible to find some deals on certain types of foreclosures.

Based on your choice of financing, you will need to use a specific strategy to lock in the purchase of a foreclosed property. It is time for you to pick up the phone and call a Brooklyn REALTOR. Your REALTOR will have access to all the foreclosed homes available and can also discuss the most effective strategies to use for the financing you have selected.

Best of success,

Read your contract. If she agreed to the terms of the sale, they likely include providing access for inspections etc. If she is trying to change the terms she already agreed to, you can probably get an attorney to write a strong letter demanding specific performance. Whether after your inspections and bids are complete you still wish to proceed with the purchase is up to you. Make sure the attorney includes allowing enough additional time since she has blocked access to do what you need to accomplish to proceed. Best of luck. ... more

Well I currently live here and although yes it has changed alot for the better, it still has issues.....
I grew up around here so I know what used to be of over here, but in my opinion the only change is rent prices, and apt renovations, Ive yet to see "Security" when things happen outside or in the buildings, No noise control....Although its not the most horrible place to live I wouldnt reccomend it to anyone, In my opinion I think as long as the management is willing to accept Section 8 residents there wont be a change....Im currently waiting for my lease to be up... ... more

Rhonda Holt answered:
Many agents may be willing to take a little off the commission to make a deal work, I have done that several times. But I will do it for deals where I am getting paid a decent commission in the first place, and I would do it if the seller owes alot of money to the bank and there's no room for the seller to be flexible on the price and I will do it but it depends on how much off my commission we are talking about too.

But it's not common for an agent/broker to compromise their commission, especially if the seller is making a large profit and can make his/her own deal work by adjusting the price. Just think about your deal and what you're paying the agent and if it's fair for the agent, especially if a portion goes to their broker. Maybe you and the agent can work together on making it come together.

No Lender will give any borrower more money than the appraisal value. Ever since the housing bubble burst, lenders have been subjecting mortgage applicants to stricter criteria.

In this crazy real estate market, houses are getting multiple offers on the first week. Cash offer are better because you know for sure that you will close and do not need to wait long to do so.

Hi Dawn,

unfortunately, coop boards do not have to state a reason for not accepting a purchaser's application. While it is understandable that you are upset and are suspicious of the board's motivations, there are legitimate reasons for a board rejecting an application. Common reasons are a purchaser will have insufficient liquid assets after closing to insure their bills will be paid should they lose their job or pets that are unacceptable.
