It's entirely up to the seller, whether they want to pay the buyer's agent commission. They are under zero obligation to pay it.

Many variables in this question First and most important is list price. If listed for current market values I would think any home in Canfield should sell for in 30 days !! Most sellers tend to feel as if there home is worth more then it is or owe more then its worth and tend to have a price in mind regardless what a professional has to tell them. Start with good foundation and everything else will fall into place. Good photos and a qualified agent "not just the friend who know a agent ", will be the next critical tool. Thirdly is condition of home, which will not be that important if you price home accordingly to condition. Good luck ! This has been the best year yet and only getting better ! ... more

Depends on what exactly "Bad" is ? I would say your best bet would be start with the property owner. You could pull this information up ( owner name and address) on the county auditor page. If you live in Mahoning county go to and this will guide you. Pull up there information and simply send the owner a courtesy note. Sometimes owners live out of town and appreciate the info. Good Luck ! ... more

If you purchase a property in a HOA and they have a fee then you need to pay the fee. There are deed restrictions on your property and a properly set up HOA can foreclose on your property if you do not pay. ... more

My family and I have lived in Canfield for the past 10 years. We searched schools along with our search of house or land. We ended up building in a small neighborhood 5 to 7 minutes from any school. Stonebridge is a great choice , it butts up to the bike path and is close to Canfield Swim and Tennis. Great place to raise a family with other families. Westford is a nice and upcoming community built around a golf course. The schools are good. We love the 4th of July parades and of course the 167 year of the Canfield Fair in August. I hope this has helped. Happy hunting! ... more

Sounds like it was priced low on purpose to see if it would get muliple offers.

I've heard of escalation clauses to raise the price when there's multiple offers but not this much of a jump.

We're you one of the buyers?

If so, how did they explain the increase?

Ask your self and your Realtor, "Did you offer a good price"? In my experience as a Realtor working Short Sales for my clients, whether buyers or sellers, the bottom line for the bank is MONEY!

In my experience the 1st reason a buyer doesn't receive a response is that the bank isn't going "to waste their time" with an offer lower than they want.

The second reason, I've experienced is that they just aren't ready to sell the home, possibly they don't have the deed cleared. Maybe it isn't in line for sale.

Back to the #1 reason, if the listing agent and the homeowners have gotten all their ducks in a row and have been fully approved for a short sale. (Thoroughly question the listing agent) Then question your offer price and how strong is your offer? do you have many contingencies? You need to look like a viable, strong buyer to the bank.

ps If you don't want to wait indefinitely, give the bank a deadline and wording that will allow you to withdraw your offer.

Good Luck--however it's more the skill and experience needed here!
