You would give the keys to the buyer according to whatever terms are in your purchase agreement under CLOSING AND POSSESSION. Close Of Escrow means the date the grant deed, or other evidence of transfer of title, is recorded. What does your Realtor say? Hope this helps. ... more

Because this is just a marketing site and should not replace your local MLS. This site is notorious for outdated listings, inaccurate data, and bugs in the search feature. Please DO NOT rely on this site for accurate listing info. You need to be working with a REALTOR who can give access to the MLS (multiple listing service), which is the ONLY place you should be getting your info! Good luck to you! ... more

Alexander Greer answered:
If it is your dream property what you can do is buy it as an investment property and keep living where you are living and then just move in once the tenants lease is up. Best way to secure the property. It is most likely that they will not accept the offer with the condition of having the tenant move out. The tenant has the right to live there even if the property sells.

I do not check replies, so if you have a comment or question email me here:

Thomas Hopkins answered:
use craigslist in your city. Every tenant still searches on craigslist and all listing companies copy the properties on craigslist. More important than listing, you should also include in your listing an online application in the post. It will allow tenants to apply and for you to see their information and make a decision on who you want to show the place to. There are many online applications, but this is the one that I have found the most useful. The last time I used them, they were completely free and they even listed my property for me and helped to generate 30 leads. Of which, I selected the best one, they did the screening for me and I signed the lease. It make renting my place out so easy. Hope that helps. ... more

Vadim Gorobets answered:
Co-ops are generally less expensive than comparable size condos. There are several reasons for that. It is more difficult to obtain financing for co-op. Prior to purchasing a unit in a cooperative, you will have to be approved by the board. Since you don’t own the real estate, but rather stock in the corporation that owns the building, you cannot write off property taxes. Obviously there could be exceptions to those rules and each case should be evaluated individually. ... more

Angie Simpson answered:

I you want the condo you should consider writing a better offer - that is your recourse. Even though the seller is facing foreclosure, that does not mean that a lowball offer will get you the condo because the seller is desperate. The offer has to be good enough that the lienholder will agree to the price and approve that aspect of the short sale. Submitting low offers that have little chance of being accepted just eats up valuable time and takes the seller closer to foreclosure.

Good luck with your house search.
