Retain an attorney to assist. The attorney will have to analyze the case and see what is unpaid and what can be done with the bank. The only people who can negotiate with the bank are the people on the loan though, as they have the contractual relationship with the bank and their finances are what the bank looks at.

As a buyer, I totally agree with the comments about offering a flooring allowance. Yes, dark carpets are a bit of a turn off in LR/DR, but when I see that the seller recently installed new carpet, that's even more of a negative. I prefer hard wood and now since the sellers already paid for carpet, I have to rip it out and I feel they are less likely to negotiate on price. I see the flooring allowance as a win-win: you spend less, I spend less, and I get what I want. ... more

It is very legal. You signed a document stating that if you failed to meet your obligation to the bank, the bank has the right to foreclose on your home and force you off their property. We are sorry to hear that this has happened, this is why it is important to listen to the lawyer at closing. ... more

I have to conur with Phi, presuming all of FL was riddled with strip malls lacking charm I was knocked out by the Ocean Drive retail village on Vero's barrier island -- it's chocked with eateries fancy to casual, boutiques, galleries, public remarkably uncrowded beached (never a charge!) and a great vibe. The folks are friendly, the offerings both cultural to recreational are surpringly sophisticated yet affordable. Thanks to being tucked in just inside the tropic line our beloved Live Oaks sit beside palms, very cool. Also cool: our river is not freshwater (=rarely gators) but a tidal estuary, with wide vistas, mangrove lined spoil islands and home to manatees, dolphin, egrets and fabulous nightly sunsets. And property's 40% more affordable than other seaside communities to boot, with rigorus low density low profile zoining, tons avail in that price point! Pics: ... more

Tom Priester answered:

There are a couple different options when contemplating the rental of a home for future purchase. Each involves two legal documents, the lease itself and then either an option or purchase agreement. The option gives you the right to purchase the home at a specified price, for a specified time in exchange for consideration (the option payment). The purchase agreement is a normal purchase agreement with an extended closing date which is typically at the end of the lease. In most cases, the best use of either of these type of agreements is to allow the purchaser time to either sell an existing residence or sort out credit issues that is preventing financing at this time.

A lot depends on your particular situation and it is something you should discuss at length with a professional Realtor® who can fully explain this process to see if it makes sense for you. Remember that we will be ruling out all short sales and foreclosures which currently dominate much of the market in Vero Beach and the surrounding communities. I would be happy to speak with you in greater detail about your real estate needs so please feel free to contact me at your convenience if I can be of any help.

Always at Your Service,
