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.

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.

Best of Luck,

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.

Best of Luck,

The cash buyers did a appraisal and it came in at $720. They offered me $770 prior to the comp. they now dropped there price to $755. I did my own appraisial a it came in at $780 but buyer say they did not use viable comps becuz one comp home was 1000sq ft bigger and lot was 1800 sq ft bigger. So they say this come isn't viable becuz thers was other more viable comps available . So I lost deal at $770 and I didn't agree to $755. Do you think if I got buyers with a mortgage it would be better becuz they will not care if it comps lower and bank gives them mortgage. ... more

Wow, this seems to be Ground Hog Day!! This comes up over and over and over. I see it with buyers all the time. In the Central Florida area, there is a lack of inventory right now. That makes it difficult to find a home at all, let alone one that doesn't need some repairs or concessions. Even with As-Is homes, the buyers still ask for repair concessions (sometimes).

It's not an easy time to sell and everyone has to compromise. Some more than others, of course. But if you are specific, as you seem to be, then that was really a huge waste of time for you and them.

I hope that you are able to get a new buyer quickly!! Good luck!

Go to the listing page for the property and click Edit Info. If you are the homeseller or the agent, you can edit the information :)
