Annette Lawrence answered:
You are asking the WRONG question.
Instead of asking, "Who can I complain to?" you should ask yourself, "How can I buy one of these homes?"
The reality is, homes that are priced below market value, usually those in need of extensive updating are EASILY sold. I have two active institutional investors, more then five regional investors and several "I wanna flip a house' citizens ready to put their money on the table. When they don't, I'll put my money on the table.
You as a potential buyer can be one of these SERIOUS buyers. But you must PROVE yourself to be a SERIOUS buyer.
#1. Serious buyers don't remain anonymus..they pick up the phone.
#2. Serious buyers have proper expectations.
#3. Serious buyers KNOW what they want. "Looking for a deal' won't do.
#4. Seriuos buyers have the resources....that means MONEY.
#5. Serious buyers are quick decision makers.
#6. Serious buyers know they must COMPETE or PAY for the privelege of not competing.
#7. Serious buyer realize getting an early options puts them ahead of the race.
#8. Serious buyers don't complain about losing, they strive to become more competitve.
#9. Serious buyers work with professionals
#10. Serious buyers use serious resources and leave the playthings of entertainment sites behind.

Bonus value: Serious buyers build a team of professionals who will collaborate and cooperate in sharing information and resources. THis team will quickly EXPEL complainers.

You are absolutely right. By the time YOU see a home for sale it has already been marketed to 5 levels of buyers before you ever see it. When you do see the really good is way too late. Your choice is to prove you are qualified to be on the FIRST LOOK option of area real estate professionals.

Looking for someone to complain to will not get you closer to buying a house.
Blaming your failure to buy a home on real estate agents reveals you have no knowledge how distressed homes are acquired and sold. Somehow, you need to recalibrate yourself and prove you are a serious buyer and team up with the pros...that is, those who do not know you wrote this question. Why? Becuase you are already looking for someone to blame. When you make a truley bone-head decison. you will again, look for someone to blame. That does not make for a good team member.

Hello Roads,

You can get a 5% percent conv. loan providing you meet the credit and income requirements set forth by your lender.

This will change your monthly payment some.

if you work overseas 340 days a year you are an ex-patriot. simply put, you cannot have it both ways. however you home can be listed as a deduction because you are making the payments.
IRS watches expats financial . first of all usa looses some tax revenue on you, but remember you get the first $100,00 tax free. rules have changed but you can check with your Overseas Employer.

Ron Thomas answered:
Didn't you have your Realtor do a CMA before you put together your offer?
You shouldn't have wasted your time.
It also sounds like you shouldn't have fallen in love too early.

Move on, you'll fall again. This is someone else's problem.

Good luck and may God bless

Michelle Gonzalez answered:
Most lenders today are asking buyers and sellers to sign an arms length affadavit. Plain and simple there should be no outside agreement between buyer and seller (like a rental agreement). Buying the house is not the issue, you should be able to buy it just as any other buyer. It gets sticky when there is an agreement to rent the home back to them. If unsure just disclose that fact from the beginning to be on the safe side. ... more

Hi Baracuda,
Ignoring for a moment the unlikely mortgage qualification of your borrower (most lenders have a time requirement of 2 years or more with a foreclosure or short sale) this question is best posed (and answered by) to a good Michigan Real Estate Attorney.
Any legal advice you may receive here is probably worth what you are paying for it...
