If the banks got a little smarter... they would simply give the listing agent the APPROVED price. The agent would list it and have it sold rapidly. However, there is alot of documentation that needs to be obtained from the seller... then it needs to be submitted to the bank... then they pass it along. ... more

I don’t understand Robins Silverberg’s math. The difference of $200,000, if correct, divided by 4 is $50,000. After any kind of normal commission, that is a lot more than $7,666.

From the facts you stated, your sister is not looking after the best interests of all of the beneficiaries of trust. If you believe that is true, you need to seek a legal opinion ASAP. Fighting the trustee of a trust may cost more than it is worth. Find out before it is too late.

As I mentioned in my answer to your first question, the loan company needs to know that they are dealing with the right person (trustee) who does have the power to make decisions on behalf of the trust.

Your mother’s trust is a legal document and the trustee is bound by it. Without seeing the trust, I have no idea what the trustee’s powers are. Not that it matters since I am not an attorney. It would not be of any real value if I did see the trust which is my way of saying that I think you need to seek legal advice if you do not believe you sister is fulfilling her duties as trustee.

Does the lender have a right to ask to see the trust? Of course they do. The lender wants to know who the trustee is and the powers of the trustee wields. The lender needs to know they are dealing with the person who is legally able to make decisions.

All agents forward approx. 3 inspectors, what is wrong with those sent. All inspectors are registered with the State, pull state files. Inspectors have to go thru intense training programs to become certified I am assured your buyers agent sent those who they have a relationship with quality of work.

Luke -

Deed in lieu transactions are rare. First requirement, no other liens on the home. Speak with your lender. They will complete and appraisal and let you know if it is possible. If you are able to obtain a deed in lieu, it may affect your ability to obtain a loan for the second home. There are credit dings for defaults, however they are handled.

Good luck,

Hi George

Just stumbled upon your question -and although I cannot physically help find your house, may I offer some insight? I have found in 11.5 yrs of selling real estate in Columbus Ohio - buyers usually end up buying something other than their initial idea of what they want. Broaden your search criteria and see if something fabulous doesn't show up :-) . For instance, maybe there is a fantastic renovatied home that is over 4 yrs old that you would have missed with a narrower search. Anyway, that is my two cents - it has worked for my clients over and over.. Good luck with your search!

PS: I CAN refer you to a qualified agent in your local area if you are not working with someone already.
Kim :-)

Hi Amber,

As others recommended, you should sit and talk to your agent. Your agent is probably as frustrated as you are with the way bank are going through selling these foreclosed homes. I take my client to preview bankown properties and by the time they decide to write offers the bank have received 3 -5 offers already. Some for higher than asking price. I rather find a home for a buyer at a lower price so I can move and help another buyer. Try to calculate what 3 to 2% commission is on the amount that your agent will tell you to increase your price by. It is not enough to justify lossing your trust and your business. If you have other reasons to not trust your agent than you need to find another agent who you can trust.

Hello Amber,

When you write an offer through your agent the offer must go to through the agent, not the owner. Once the agent receives the offer it is their duty to present it to the seller.
