It depends on what you consider "harassment".

If you mean they're calling you offering to list your house and/or asking questions or attempting to set up showings on behalf of their clients, well welcome to being a real estate agent! The constant contact is one of the many reasons people choose not to represent themselves. ... more

Robert Adams answered:
contact title and the HOA both in writing stating you want the credit refunded to you. Provide documentation showing you over paid as well as the contract stating that it is to be prorate and refunded.

And next time let me represent you so I can handle issues like this for you instead of you having to go out an research it on your own. After all isn't that what you are paying you agent for??

Hi Jason,

Education is Top Priority.
First I listen,.... then I bring them up to par on current market conditions.
From there I make sure that they are well versed in the home buying process,... and then its time for Q&A.
I've found that if you take care of these matters up front,... it helps to solidify a strong, trusting relationship and deters potential problems down the road.

I hope this helps....

Kyle Brennan answered:
As an agent myself. I would say definitely interview, ask around, read reviews, and just get an overall snapshot of the agent before working with him or her. You want to be able to click with your agent. I would hope your agent would be very straight forward with you about the entire process as well. That's one of the most important qualities an agent can have.

Robert Adams answered:
You would need the landlord to agree in writing to let you out of the lease. If not you need to fulfill your end of the lease prior to moving. If they sell it to a new owner then the new owner is required to honor the current lease.

If you would like to discuss further please feel to give me a call or shoot me an email.

Best Regards,

Devon Gibbs answered:
Although the other agents are right about the tax record, I believe your info is pulling off the MLS system from the listing when you bought the home in 2009. (It was 5BR in 2003.) Agents enter almost all the info on MLS except location and total s.f. Legally, NV RED requires MLS list a bedroom as having a window, a closet, and a door. Otherwise, it is considered an office, den, loft, etc., (rooms which Trulia currently ignores.) If the prior listing agent was incorrect or you remodeled, without relisting your property and it still really bugs you, you can try and call GLVAR directly and have the MLS dept make the correction, although they might not deal with the public. 702-784-5000 But you do have the 2003 MLS in your favor for an easy fix. However, your overall property values are more linked to overall square footage and an extra bedroom might bump you $1,000 on an actual appraisal, keeping in mind that I'm a Realtor, not an appraiser. There is a comparable home for sale right now on Mt Creek for $950,000, compared to the Trulia estimate. Both are simple guidelines without paying for an appraisal.

If I'm wrong and you actually need/want to call the CC assessor, they won't do anything without an appraisal, so in my book you'll be spending $500 to gain $1,000.

Damon Botticelli answered:
If your credit was run, you may be entitled to a formal denial letter stating the reason for the denial. Did you contact the listing agent AFTER you saw the house listed again to ask why you weren't accepted? It is possible that another application was accepted, but the applicant didn't follow through with deposits and/or lease signing. This could be a matter of incompetence vs discrimination. However,you should dig a little deeper and if you were discriminated against because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or familial status, then you should file a fair housing complaint. ... more

If you are unemployed, No.

If you haven't been unemployed for long, go get a new job and continue your income, and if your property has 0+ equity and a continually good credit history, you may qualify soon.

Well, I see that David deleted his post. We have had problems with him on other questions. Bottom line, do your research. My credo is "The best decision is a well informed decision...So we take whatever time is necessary to make sure you make the best, most well informed decision."

For nearly 32 years it has worked for me.

best of luck.
