Does "flat" mean "low"? If so, you won't get many takers. If "Flat" means "High" likely need more advertising!

This is not an easy one. I have had my share of sellers like this. All you can do is advise them.
They will have the final say on price.

I had one guy in particular, he was so stubborn he alomost had me in tears. After about 45 days on the market at" HIS" price, several showings but no offers. I informed him that he was a great neighbor, because he had priced his home too high he was helping others in the community sale their homes.

Once I was able to show him other home in his neighborhood, that were homes price right, listed after he had listed where already in escrow, he changed his tune.

Best of luck to you!

We believe the bank owned properties are finally coming on the market now. We list and sell bank owned properties for the major banks (Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America) and we've received many properties during the past 2 weeks that are soon coming on the market, once the evictions have been completed. This should mean the inventory of bank owned properties should once again increase. If so, it's very likely prices should be heading south. BUT, you never know... There are many macro economic factors, and politics, that could change things...

Cameron, congrats on your new endevour! Best of luck and let us know if you need any help.

Before renting a home you can ask your agent to run a quick title search to see if a Notice of Default or Notice of Trustee Sale has been registered with the county. You can also ask to see current mortgage statements from the landlord. I have also written leases in which the tenant makes payments directly to the mortgage company.

You should be able to tell if the landlord is hiding something just by asking to see specif documents, like their current mortgage payments. If the landlord doesn't want to be transparent, then you may want to keep looking.

I'm very sorry this has happened to you. It seems this market has drawn the worst out of people.

Hope this helps you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
