I listed a realtor (my neighbor) when I was buying a new build. She didn't show us the house, model home, she has done nothing. Also I never signed a buyers agreement with her.

I have contacted her, she doesn't return my calls or texts.

Can I get her off my new build purchase agreement before it closes?

Hi Cheryl,

I suggest you speak with your own personal accountant. While most of us know a little bit about property taxes, no Realtor is in the position to advise you on your specific needs.

Take care.

An excellent real estate agent can help you with a concurrent closing so you'll only need to move once.

Our team helps sellers with this all the time.

TK Khan answered:
In short, Yes Wait. The area around Green River exit called Sierra Del Oro is currently overpriced do to its close proximity to Orange County and low inventory levels, however, after the new foothill parkway corridor is in place and the inventory increases and the market starts to stabilize from its current inflated prices, you should find more options in your budget. It is a catch 22 however, because your interest rates will probably be at least 1% higher in the next year or so because of the federal government ending the process called Quantitative Easing. With all that said, if you find something in your budget that you like, grab it if you can. ... more

What an exciting time for you! The best place to start is to ask friends, family, and co-workers for a recommendation. If they were happy with their agent they will be more than happy to refer them. If they were not satisfied with their agent they will let you know who not to use. Good Luck! ... more

If you're strictly talking about value in an "appraisal" sense, $5,000 is the number. Realistically, the extra garage could mean the difference in getting a buyer at your asking price, or not getting the offer. Contact a great Realtor in your area. ... more

Ray Wright answered:
Realtors can't give legal advice and we can give advice on law enforcement/crime issues for sure. Just opinions. As an ex cop, I do recall there was a Penal Code section about impersonating another. I think it's 529 PC or something like that. But the impersonation is difficult to prove and I believe there has to be some harm or gain attached to the offense. If the landlord was merely calling the Gas Company and verifying certain things about the bill and using your info to gain it (like on the automated service) you may or may not have much to stand on. My suggestion is to call the local police and see what they say. They may try to get out of writing anything up but I advise you to have them document it at the least. That way, if something else happens in the future, you can have a documented file of past grievances. Good luck! ... more

But the NOD's are very high in the Inland Empire. The area is recovering but not to the point that people would like to be in.

Your best bet would be to find a place near your husbands work. The commute would put a real strain on your relationship. An honest answer from an honest Realtor.

Diego Hernandez answered:

I am sad to hear about your unfortunate living conditions and the burden of the situation.
Everyones' situation is different and no one answer is right for everyone. If you haven't short sold or undergone any foreclosure proceedings feel free to give me an email at

If you are holding a 1st and 2nd mortgage there exists a dirty secret. Depending on your situation, its usually beneficial to stop payment on the 2nd mortgage, in order for an action to take place they must assume the 1st mortgage. Is this your situation? I doubt it, but if so you may have more options available to help you keep your house.

Good Luck
