I think what you might be looking for is a Transaction Coordinator. These are trained individuals who assist in completing paperwork associated with the Real Estate transaction. They would only work with a licensed individual so if you are licensed to transact Real Estate business, you can likely get some names from your Broker or another Brokerage office near you. ... more

Greg Kochanov answered:
I know it's an old thread, but I also wanted to say that I ALWAYS show my listings and most of my listings sell within a few weeks. Most of my sales are apartments and most buyers' agents have absolutely no clue as to what the building offers in terms of amenities, house rules, sublet policies, pet policies, etc. and what's nearby - like shopping and transportation options - so they are essentially worthless and most of them wouldn't be able to sell my listings without my presence. It's not about how many listings you have but how many listings you sell and how quickly you sell them. What's better, 200 listings that are expiring or 20 listings that are sold within a few weeks? Maybe that's why NYC leads in the number of real estate sales. ... more

Rental laws in different states are different. By taking rent for a room she established a tenant / landlord relationship. I would seek legal council but normal protocol is 60 day notice.
Good luck.

The contract will need to be mutually canceled. Speak to your agent about it and if they are not willing to cancel, speak with their broker.

I'm part of a group called ShortSaleSuperstars that has multiple pages on various lenders including contact information. I've attached a link that may contain the information you're looking for. Rather than publish the numbers you may already have, check out the page and see if there is something helpful. Best of luck. ... more

The space rent is listed at $780 a month. You will want to confirm this is for the new buyer and not just the current rent. For additional details, I suggest contacting the listing agent. Their name and company is located under the listing information on the ad.

Best of luck in your home search

Tristam Bielecki answered:
Under California law, a tenant without a written contract is still afforded some rights when it comes to eviction. As this is a subtenancy, notices to the subtenant come from your direct tenant but you can provide them the materials if you want.

This is essentially the same process you would need to follow if you have a tenant that is on month-to-month terms.

A HUD home means that the property is owned by HUD. This usually happens when the prior owner defaulted on an FHA loan.

An unspecified property means they are not sure what type of home is listed. This often happens when a manufactured home is affixed to a permanent foundation.

All that being said, this property is not currently showing on the HUD site as available for sale. It is also not showing on the MLS as available for sale. So beware.

If you are looking for a great deal in Canyon Country, your best bet is to work with a reputable realtor in that area. They will keep you from being scammed.

Marianne Leopold answered:
Good question.
I was told at the beginning as a realtor that it was the right thing to do as there will come a lot of realtors to see the house but now I am not sure anymore.
It seems that the realtors that will go on these tours are the news agents or agents who have all the time to do that.
The agents who have clients for that particular house will find the house themselves and show It for their clients.
That is what my experience says after more than 10 years in the business.

Cyndi Lesinski answered:
The local SCV Division of CrisNet has just started to hold Broker Opens again. These meetings went away for about 2 years and several agents have recently rallied to start it up again. As a matter of fact, today was the second or third meeting since starting up again. It was held with about 40 Realtors and other real estate service providers in attendance.

There were 7 listings that were pitched to the group. These were also open to all Realtors/Brokers to attend for the designated time periods that the individual agents set up. My listing was open from 10-2 for agents to view. There is a setting within the MLS that agents can hit to submit their listing to the Broker Caravan. Few agents are aware of this service and some may not realize the exposure that it can get the listing. I believe in providing my listing with all possible exposures as you never truly know where the buyer will come from.

I hope this helps!

Hi Lisa,
I would love to help you & your son's family with their new adventure. You can email me directly at First I would need to know when he would need to be in a new home. Does he want to rent or own. Than I would need to know a bit about your son's budget, and the type of home (older/newer/etc) that he's looking for. I'd be happy to help your son in the right direction with respect to some great areas of Santa Clarita. Have a great day!
