The sale of a home made to a family member or someone with whom the seller has had a previous relationship, at a price below the current market value. The difference between the actual sales price and the market value of the home is called the gift of equity. Most lenders allow the gift to count as a down payment on the home. A gift of equity requires a gift of equity letter that is signed by both the seller and the buyer. A gift of equity can have tax consequences, as it could impact the asset's cost basis for the new homeowner and have capital gains implications for the seller.

Please keep reaching out, because there is always someone able and willing to help you if at all possible... The seller typically pays the realtor fee for your realtor and if not, just disclose that to the person you can find to help you.

First, with bank owned homes there is a real chance it will be available again, so don't let go. I've sold hundreds++ for wells fargo and freddiemac, so believe me, until it is closed there is a chance to bid on it and get it again. Secondly, just call the dept of real estate and inquire about the agent and decide from there what you deem is best. Personally, that kind of behavior is bad for business, but on the other hand people sometimes lose loved ones or something very tragic could have happened in their lives and those individuals can be coping with tremendous hurt and pain by trying to work, but really just participating in work and going through the motions not really trying to hurt anyone. That being said, I would still be mad as a hornet if that happened to me.... Sorry to hear that, but stick in there with that house until you know its really done... ... more
