Are the photos showing up on Zillow or is it both websites don't have pictures? On Zillow, you can go to your listing and add /edit photos.

If there's no executed contract you should rescind your offer with your agent. Something that I do so that earnest money deposit isn't held up is not to pay that deposit until remedy is agreed upon. Good Luck & Happy Holidays ... more

You will need to wait until you have a minimum of 1 year of self employment, you will need to be able to document your income is at the same level or greater.

I agree with all the posts, in addition... Please do your due diligence of checking records with the clerk of county courts as to mechanics leans and water past dues, these go with the house and you may have to carry them, unlike past taxes or second mortgages, etc.
Also, you are not allowed in the property until you have a deed in hand, not just confirmation, the actual transferred deed in your name recorded by the county. This means the bank will not be able to send an appraiser inside either, so, do discuss it with the loan company or bank in detail before you dive into a sherriff's auction.

Please feel free to reach out to me at 330-285-4134 or
Best Wishes,
Ajay Mehta. Russell Real Estate Services

Pastor someone has misinformed you. There is no such thing as a free listing for a for sale by owner on Trulia. The fact is your agent has to upload the data into Trulia from your local MLS. ... more

I'm watching for answers here. I am in the same predicament only I am disabled and cannot work at all. My husband was court ordered to pay the mortgage and refused, the court is doing nothing about it, he's refused to complete papers for a short sale, and my credit was good before all this. If I could only work, but my disability claim still has not gone through. I'm bed bound most days, the rest mainly home bound. I started out so well at 21 getting a new house built with what was then Farmer's home administration. I have no idea what to do as my husband and the bank last June forced me into signing for this re-finance mortgage by threatening not to pay any bills in my name, at the time I only had bills to the bank we were re-financing with when he never intended to live in the home. Being that I cannot work I felt I had no other choice but to sign for the re-finance especially when the bankers were so sternly warning telling me it was in my best interest to sign. I wanted no part of it and told them so they were well aware of the threat I was under because I communicated many times I have the hand written letter my husband wrote. At the time the bank seemed to be following my husband's plans for us financially still knowing the circumstances. I was so scared I just signed and hoped for the best. We have a Freddie Mac Re-fi and I reported this to them stating as one financial advisor told me Freddie Mac would on three issues alone force a buy back. Foreclosure proceedings are scheduled and there is nothing I can do as I am still on only emergency spousal support that does not cover all of my expenses. ... more

Tari Torch Sweeney answered:
Well, bottom line is that an attorney will tell you your next move. If no mutual release is signed,the earnest money should still be in the trust account. It will sit there. Where is your realtor? And your realtor's manager? And, I repeat, you may lose the money to an attorney,but you stand to lose that without one,too. Pls understand that,as Realtors, we CANNOT give legal advice. Every Realtor who has responded has,essentially, told you this. I, for one, am sorry this has happened to you. But, now you need legal advice. Also, i don’t know how this escaped your Realtor/Broker. If your Realtor was also the seller's realtor, you DO need your own attorney, because possibility is that this realtor was representing seller, not you. ... more

Mary Starkey answered:
Kaye, even if earnest money was supposed to be collected ( it is not mandatory unless mentioned in the contract), the buyers would have been able to have it returned to them since they did not have the funds to close. Most contracts are written so that the sale is contingent on the buyer being able to obtain a mortgage. ... more
