If you haven't adjusted the price yet, you're past due. 2 months is long enough for the market to speak. I would ask your agent to update their market analysis and show you what has sold, is competing with you and what is currently under contract since you entered the market.
If others are selling and yours are not, changes are in order. I wrote a blog series called 4 Keys to Selling Your Home Quickly and for Top Dollar. Since we've been following this process our homes are under contract in 30 days or less, most within a week We've been getting tons of traffic and very favorable terms for our seller.
Our market may be different from yours, so it may take a bit more time, but this is the advice I'd give anyone.

It sounds like you're on the right path. I would need to know more about your situation to determine your next steps.

There are many factors to credit, down payment and your qualifications. There are also different types of loans.

Please contact me to discuss your options. I work with great mortgage brokers who will be able to guide you through this process and together we can get you in to a home!

I look forward to assisting you!

Are you sure you want a lease option property? Are you listening to the current hype? The normal amont to put in an option contract is 5% of the purchase price in my area in SW Ohio.Are you willing to lose that money if for some reason you can not exercise the option and purchase the property at the end of the option?
Most people are better off renting and then looking at homes for sale when they qualify for a loan. There is a person in my area that has made a very good income offering homes on a short term lease option and then when the tenant can not exercise the option the option fee by contract is his. Some people call him a scammer but he is living by the contract that all parties agreed to up front.

A real estate agent like myself can put you in there system and have every lease option deal that fits your criteria on the market sent to your email! Contact me anytime I would love to help you out! :-) You may be able to work a deal with a seller that isn't really offering a lease purchase option depending on your situation.

Get your lease purchase list here and watch some educational videos about the process!

Hi, Linda. Nearly all apartments have their own property manager in charge of rentals so real estate agents don't have these listings or access to much information about them. You would need to call each building individually and inquire of the property manager whether they allow pets. There are some single and multi-family homes available for rent that may accept pets. If you are interested more information about these types of rentals, please let me know. I live and work in Berea and would be happy to assist.

Kind regards,

You have reached Berea, Ohio. It's amazing to have more than one Berea. I'm not certain about the Kentucky Berea. I have often wished we lived in the KY Berea. I live in the OH Berea and living in Ky would make our drives down home a lot closer... to TN. Good luck.

If I wanted to know about Berea KY, I would go to their website to find out more.

What have you got to lose? Give a counter, and see how the bank responds. I'd do it quickly., though. If you think it's a good value, someone else might too!

Discuss this with your Realtor, assuming you have one, and come up with a reasonable counter.

As a cash buyer, they should take you very seriously.... which is probably why they repsonded so quickly.

Good luck!

Hi Kim,

Good time to start planning for this as it may take you a little time to sell your current home depending on how your market is there. Your first thing to do is get connected with an agent in your home town and then one in the Berea, KY area. If you need help, I'd be happy to connect you with some folks. Drop me an e-mail or give me a call at 440-527-0411. I work for a national company that connect you with great agents around the world!
