Scott Weaver answered:
The best way is to have your real estate agent contact the listing agent to see what sort of listing agreement they have with the owner. They will disclose whether or not it is exclusive.

Don't get too hung up on that. Try to concentrate on whether a home is a good value for you and make your offer. There are good and bad FSBO, wholesale, retail, and REO deals. Just because you get something FSBO doesn't mean it is a good deal.

You need to get with your probate lawyer.
Sounds like you need to sell the house or have the person living in it buy the others out.

Rarely would I think it is a good idea to hold on to the property to divide later. ... more

To transfer deed all you have to do is go to the county court house and transfer the deed. It will need to be notarized. I believe the county cost is $10-25 and very easy to do.

Glad to hear you are considering renting property in SE Houston. You had asked about renting a place inside the 610 Inner Loop, in the $900-1200 range, for a single-family home. I searched your immediate zip code (77004) and didn't find anything for lease in that price range. Inside the Loop is rather pricey for most folks, with most homes being owner-occupied, not rentals. However, the closest thing that fits your criteria is just outside Loop 610 East in the nearby Galena Park area (north of I-10). It's a short drive from your zip (77004). If you e-mail me at:, I will send you an attachment of the 4 MLS properties I found in a recent search. I wish you the best with your move. I'm here to help you anyway I can -- just call or email me: Karen Savage, REALTOR, Keller Williams Realty/North(west)--Hwy 290/FM1960 area near Willowbrook Mall; 8300 FM 1960 West, Suite 310, Houston, TX 77070, direct: 281-813-9769; office: 281-664-8300,x3004; (You got a friend in Texas!
