UpNest Top Realtors answered:
The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

The answer to your question will lie in the documents you signed with your application. There are lenders who will charge for the credit report up front and if the appraisal has been done you likely owe for that too. Beyond that is anyone’s guess and you are subject to the agreements you signed with the lender and their willingness to enforce them.
My question for you is, if you cancel are you prepared to start over with another lender? You say the seller will not extend, which may be their right, but then they are back on the market looking for another buyer with a failed sale.
I would suggest you raise heck with the lender, any supervisor or manager involved and let them know you intend to go public with your dissatisfaction on this and many other public sites. Often bad reviews will get a business’s attention and as long as you did your part in getting your documentation to them in a timely manner, it shouldn't be your fault. It sounds like you have made a good faith effort to obtain financing.

There is no specific time as it depends on many factors such as urgency to sell, pricing and many others.
As you are a Home Buyer, if there is a home you are interested in, you can have the broker or agent (preferably a buyers agent/ broker) help you determine and present an offer that might get you the home at the price you are looking for.

Diallo J. Stevens, CRS answered:
Yikes Kathy! Or as Steve Irwin would have said "Crikey!" I wish I saw your question sooner! Yes, fixer-uppers sell and are in high demand. But like everything else, the right price, marketing, and guidance are absolutely critical - now more than ever!

There may be other considerations that may not be so obvious.

I'd love to discuss further. Feel free to contact me directly - 718-446-1300 x.309

I've closed on over a dozen co-ops this year and found that Robert Pacht is one of the best attorneys to use. He walks the buyer or seller through the entire process and puts their best interest before anything else. His prices are also very reasonable. Bob can be reached at 516.773.3900 or email him at Call or email me if you want some client testimonials that used Bob.

Louis Cardenas answered:

Simply put, if your home's selling price is over $500,000 a homeowner pays a total of 1.825% of the selling price in City and State taxes. If it sells for under $500,000 then the amount is 1.4% of the selling price.

The first thing you need to do is to have a current evaluation made of the property's value. As you local Realtor, I would be happy to provide it with no obligation.

You can do an inspection but you may be better off with a Home Warranty. Keep in mind that in a co-op you only own shares of the corporation, and are not responsible for the building's roof, main pipes, main heating components, etc. With that said the decision to inspect or not is yours.
