Impuestos answered:
Most states require the lawyers at closing to hold a certain percentage of the sales proceeds and send it to the state tax department in the seller's SS#. When you file your return at year end you will put this money as an estimated tax payment. This calculation will usually result in an overpayment of your taxes and you will get a larger refund (assuming you had a loss on the sale).
It's the state's way of making sure they get their fair share of the profit up front, instead of chasing the taxpayer for the tax due if there was a profit.

Marlene Paisley answered:
Am I understanding correctly that you're trying to short sale a home in Baltimore, MD? If so, as a Licensed Real Estate Broker in Maryland here's my answer: ask the Buyer's agent for a letter from the lender for the buyer showing they don't qualify any longer for a loan,or the reason they can't consummate the sale. Even in short sales we need a valid reason to terminate a contract. Inability to get a loan is a prime reason most buyers don't buy. Was the LLC paying cash or getting a loan? If they were paying cash, where'd the money go? It's odd for a bank to decline to sell to a particular buyer. Something didn't satisfy their portfolio for that house. Was the short sale package complete with all required paperwork? Review these things and go from there.

Hope this helps.

Karen Peyton answered:
You'll have to read your contract to find out the means of notification required, "if" notification is required, and what happens if you are not notified. That, or see an attorney - since none of us know what the contract reads and/or what you signed.

Good luck!

Qulia Bryant answered:
If nothing else you should expect professionalism. Is your realtor knowledgeable on the market/neighborhood trends? Is your realtor responsive when you or an interested buyer contacts them? Is your realtor organized and proactive throughout the process? These things come along with being a professional. Keep in mind that a professional may not be as emotional about the situation as you are, but they should still have your best interests at heart.
If this doesn't sound like your realtor, then you may need a new realtor. I can assist you with finding a great realtor in your area. My company has an extensive network of realtors that we work with, so I'd be glad to recommend someone who will take care of your needs. If you're interested in this shot me a message at the email below.

Your best bet is to bring a realtor to view your kitchen in order to get the best answer as to how to properly stage. Clearly, smaller size table, chairs, keeping the room monochromatic with paint colors, with few items on the counter would be a good idea. ... more
