Regardless of all of that. The Law is that you must disclose all known material facts about the property. If your house has such problems, you know and you don't tell the buyer, then you are liable. Also, it is impossible to know what 'as is' means until you do your due diligence. The Agent has a fiduciary duty to the client. We're not selling fruit here. For most people their home is their single biggest investment and equity.

Hope that helps.

Hi Erma:

It comes down to :

1.) what you paid or actual cost when you paid it
2.) what are the gains and how long have you owned it
3.) is your spouse alive
4.) your present age and income status.

But any gains higher than $500K will incur long term Capital Gains.

Good luck

Hello Debbie:

Is the photo you're referring to on Trulia? If it is being pulled from the MLS and your real estate agent took and posted the photo, your agent will be able to change the photo. However, sometimes, Trulia pulls photos from Google, and you would need to ask Trulia how to do that.

Best regards,

Curb Appeal is the first impression. This makes the buyers want to come into the house as opposed to walking away. Well manicured yard and planting flowering shrubs around the front. Entry door is also important, try to paint it a bold color that catches the attention of the buyers. Updated Kitchen and bathrooms are always a good ROI. Painting is very important as well because it gives the rooms a facelift and always choose neutral colors .

Michelle Carr-Crowe answered:
First define "talking to"-is this a contractual relationship? Are you and your husband still married, separated, getting divorced? Is this agent technically representing both of you in any transaction?

Obviously it's in poor taste. While "unethical" from my understanding, it only violates the REALTOR(R) Code of Ethics if this agent is representing you (or both of you) and the relationship has negatively impacted their fiduciary duty.

I went onto the Multiple Listing Service and that address does not show up, nor do they show anything on Winepol Loop that sold for more than $550K in the last 7 years. There must be a typo or input error somewhere. ... more

Robert Lei answered:
Sorry to hear about your troubles. Did you have some sort of divorce agreement? Did you and/or your ex have a divorce attorney?

Check whether you can work it out without an attorney. However, if you need one, I know a real estate attorney that I can refer to you. ... more
