You can contact a real estate lawyer or a title company about it. You will also must consider the advise of a Realtor to guide you through the buying process to make sure the property is priced right and in good condition.

Hi Avianian,
Well, a short little question, which can get a million different answers, so here is mine....

Meet with a good Realtor in your area and discuss in detail your home, its location, its condition, what you can improve on either by staging, changing curb appeal, any minor improvements etc. and then it will all come to the correct pricing. We are in a buyers market in almost all markets, so the more competitive your home is price the better the chances to get attention and an offer. If you need to sell quickly then you will have to be even more aggressive with the pricing of your home.

In order to get the pricing right, you need to discuss properties similar to your that are competing with yours, and sometimes larger and more updated homes are competing because of their pricing!!!! and your Realtor will be able to show you properties that have recently sold and for how much.

Your Realtor you will commit to will also be able to take you to see homes your are currently competing with, so that you will feel comfortable with the price you start out with.

Good Luck! If you need help to be connected with an El Paso Realtor, let me know.

I'm sorry to hear you are having a bad experience. Based on recent sales in your area are you overpriced and have you discussed this issue with your Realtor, if you are consider an immediate price drop. Did he/she run any open houses and did you have a lot of traffic, if not a strong indicator it's the price. Also, are you using a full service broker or low budget? If working with a low budget, he/she may not have the funds to do the proper marketing on your behalf, and obviously without traffic he/she has nothing to report to you.

East El Paso is a pretty big area. With the number of homes on the market for rent that's a pretty tall task. It would be much better if you could narrow your search area down by using schools or streets to bring it in a bit. ... more
