Yes you can sell your home but you will be required to pay a FIRPTA tax. Google "FIRPTA" to read about it and see what is required of you.

You need a good real estate attorney in the area where the home is located. From now on, take the advice an attorney will give you: Do NOT talk or communicate with your ex.

Unfortunately, nobody online can offer you advice because this is a legal matter - not a real estate matter. What you should have done is never allowed your boyfriend to be on the title with you. That was a huge mistake. For this reason alone is why you need an attorney. ... more

I have a home for sale in Pooler, GA. My agent, although licensed, is basically a property manager and has too many other projects and selling my home is not his priority. Can I co-list with a full-time realtor who will give my property his/her full attention. ... more

Unfortunately, the numbers you see on these sites are generated by complex algorithms and there really is nothing anyone can do. This is just a marketing website and they pull the data from various sources. And most of us pros know the data isn't very good nor accurate, which is why we always tell our buyers and sellers to never pay attention to these bogus websites! The good news is that most buyers will be working with a Realtor, who will be able to explain this to them if it comes up. ... more

Absolutely not. When performing due diligence when purchasing property in Georgia, or any state for that matter, you can do your own real estate title and lien search online. Do an online search for "Title search websites" and look for only "Organic" results for companies that have true authority on the subject. I.E. US Title Records

I would most definitely advise purchasing a title insurance policy once the Preliminary title search has been completed. (Also see Chain of title searches).

That is not what Trulia does. You can post your listings here and market yourselves. You should also set up accounts on Active Rain and start a blog to market. I put a free link below

Cynthia - No one can answer this question, as no one has seen or read your contract!

You're asking a legal question - so you might want to seek legal advice

Maybe working with an agent isn't such a bad idea, as clearly you're in over your head.

If you still want to go it on your own, I strongly suggest you take time to learn about the home selling process............. or pay an attorney to represent your interests

Best wishes.....

Hi Keeney,

I recently showed a condo conversion in that area (an apartment building that is now a condo). The property showed nicely, but she was expecting to see more space, even though the listing clearly read single bedroom. We visited because many single bedrooms offer a loft area that is not, by definition, a bedroom. Because it was an apartment conversion, the property was up two flights of stairs and the parking arrangements were not very clear.

The good news is that this property was in an FHA approved complex. You may want to be sure that your condo is FHA approved, is priced right and shows well. In this limited inventory market, it should move quickly if all of those components apply.

Good luck and please keep the faith. It will soon sell.

Sally Grenier answered:
Are you a seller? Or buyer? Not sure what you're really asking for, or what the circumstances are. Did you have your home listed for sale? Did you get any offers? If you only had a "verbal agreement", then you have no legally binding agreement, and you really don't need any "release letter". If you're very early on and nothing has really been done, and you're no longer wanting to work with this agent and you don't have any contract in writing, just call them or email them saying you no longer want to work with them. It's pretty straight forward.

However, if it was listed for sale, and there is a buyer making an offer, or you're under contract with a buyer...then the agent, theoretically, could argue he/she deserves a commission, and might come after you for it.

If you're a buyer, and you no longer want to work with that agent you basically have no legally binding agreement in place. However...if that agent worked his/her butt off for you, and helped you find a house, and now you don't want to work with him/her....they can come after you for a commission. It's called "procuring cause".

Way too many unknowns here to give you a clear answer. Good luck!
