Ron Thomas answered:
Why; did you think one of us painted the house?
Possibly you could take a paint chip down to Lowe's or Home Depot and have them match it.
If the paint is more than three years old; you will not match it due to weathering. ... more

Hi Bev,

If you have equity in the house to support the short fall related to your mortgage balance to fair market value, or you can support the short fall with cash and you want to relocate as soon as possible---sure, why not? Home values are not going to increase much within the next several years. You will probably find a home when you relocate that is an exceptional value where that home's value has decreased as well. I'm seeing many home owners purchase larger and better homes now that they could not have otherwise afforded 36+ months ago. Most sellers are taking a hit when selling their home, however, they are getting far more in return with the purchase of their next home. Good luck! ... more

Bill Eckler answered:

It doesn't make this right......but it's happening many times every day. Banks are currently enjoying the flexibility to make decisions with little regard to their impact on others.

These reports are one of the reasons why many agents and buyers are electing to avoid these transaction and are persuring other options: foreclosure, traditional sales, HUD sales, etc.

There are many opportunities for today's buyer. Our recommendation is that you do not let one bad experience stand in your way....just consider yourself more wiser.

Good luck

Donna Wisniewski answered:
You want to be represented by a Buyers Agent who can represent your best interest in a real estate transaction. This means that your agent can run comparable solds to see if the value is there for the property and can also make recommendation as to what price and terms to put in your offer. If you worked with the listing agent or seller/agent he or she represents the seller and only owes fiduciary responsibility as well as confidentiality to the seller.Usually the seller pays the real estate fees for the listing and selling agents so it should not cost you any more money however in the longrun the buyers agent will negotiate you the best offer. Good Luck in your new home....Donna ... more
