You can not just get by the listing agent. HOWEVER it is the law they submit every offer to the seller and let the seller answer it. The only "BUT" would be if the seller/the bank said NO offers under 224k. The thing you need to know is banks do not need to take low ball offers as there is a shortage of homes for sale. Banks will stay high for 30 days and then reduce every month until it sells. You need to be there when the bank decides get the highest and best offer and sells it as is for what ever the bets offer is. Your agent has to insist on the offer being submitted and go to the agents managing broker if needed. ... more

The laws may be different in your state. In Minnesota it will depend first on written rent contracts. Verbal doesn't count anywhere in the US when it comes to showings. And month to month is the only verbal contract allowed but has nothing to do with showing. State law governs month to month. In Minnesota a landlord can put a lockbox on your property. How else would you get a key safely to other agents. Anyone that needs to get in must get the specific combo from the owner of the property. And it is recorded by your state listing service. As you implied month to month renters have fewer rights than leaseholders. If you have a better way call your landlord. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Most realtors refuse to work with foreclosures and short sales because it involves extra time and paperwork and there is no additional pay for it. Foreclosures are priced cheaper because these homes need repairs, they may have possible liens which needs to be researched, etc. Realtors know that it takes less time to get a buyer to buy a regular resale home and they earn far more money for it. Finally, most foreclosed homes ate cash deals only. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
What does your REALTOR say? What does your CONTRACT say?? Impossible for anyone here to give you a clear answer without being involved in your transaction. This should have been addressed in the contract. Frankly, if I were the buyer's agent, I wouldn't have recommended they do the inspection until they knew you had a house to go to! ... more
