Contracts cannot be assigned so a Buyer would not be able to obtain a mortgage in that case.

I see you've another older post and no answers. I would recomend Jefferson Title for closings. They handle everything from title searches, can do Power of attorneys if needed for the closing, and have the lawyers to do the closings themselves.
If you need a contact name and number for someone there, let me know and I'll get it to you!

I see this is an old post, I also see Bessemer as your area and if that is so, I can assure you there are other agents who can provide you with information on homes int he Bessemer area.
I do hope that your relationship with this agent has changed, or by now perhaps you've found another source of information. Are you an investor? looking for a property for yourself??
I may can assist you, please let me know.

I have a home available for sale in Bessemer if you are looking for one now. I know you are seeking a list. Did you try asking a local real estate office /bank for their copy?

Aaron Sims answered:
Trulia's recent solds come from public record and can be considered accurate. As to what is recent, you'll have ot see if the date of sale is listed to make sure you are not looking at a sale that is over a year or so old.
Best of luck!

Rent to own is not what you think it is, real estate is not the same as a couch or tv. I hope you do not lose a lot of money, see the link below, good luck,

A couple years ago a friend unknowingly purchased a similar list---it was bogus! Partner up with a good agent for FREE. Taking short cuts may end up costing you far more in the end. Good luck to you! ... more

Motivation could be all kinds of different things, wanting to move where its warmer, to a larger place a smaller place and so on..... who knows each sellers reasons are different, as are every buyers motivations why they want to buy and why this house and not another one etc. etc.

When a seller sits down with a Realtor and lists their home, they want to sell, will they get the price that they either want, need for the next purchase or for a million other reasons, but they do want to and are motivated
to some point, will they give their home away probably NOT....

Where do we find them, well it's not like finding mushrooms in the forest, that would not be too bad, but that is not how it works, we reconnect with former clients, recommendations from friends, family, business associates, and any and all other ways, as professionals we connect with the buying and selling public
in all kinds of venues, and each of us, connects in different ways...

Are you looking to buy the most for the least. Just wondering.
You should have lots to look at...

Make sure you have your financials well sorted out, talk to a lender and then use an experienced buyers agent to work in your best interest and who will guide you through the entire process, there is lots to be careful and prudent about.

Do not do this alone...
