Contact an agent in your area about doing a short sale and the incentives the bank would be willing to offer for you to move on. You won't know until you and your agent start digging around for answers. Good luck! Hopefully it's enough to pack up and go. ... more

Consider using a local REALTOR to find your rental as they have access to the real MLS for the rental market, as there are LOTS of scams out there in the internet world with these 3rd party web sites! ... more

Iris answered:
I currently live in Chicopee and I love it. Yes, there have been incidences of break ins, car theft and all that mess but its everywhere. If you ask me I'd rather live in Chicopee than in Holyoke. I used to live in Holyoke and its not what it used to be. Too much gang activity and decent people that lived there have all moved elsewhere due to the high crime and murder rate. I wouldn't live in Holyoke unless I really really need to and its only certain areas away from the actual city itself. My advice - seek housing in the areas away from the city. If you notice housing is much cheaper the closer you are to the city. Stay away from anything in the High, Maple, Oak, Beech, and other areas close to or near the city hall area. ... more

It may be under agreement, removed, or it may not have been in an MLS. Of course choosing a local real estate pro can help you save a lot of time. (Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro when you are ready.)
(Please note: when you choose an answer as a Best Answer, or at least give a thumbs up, it helps those who answer questions here.)

Yes, it is over a year old...AND...
the market has changed from a buyer to seller market.
-
Today, sellers who are represented well, will not be penalized for buyers insufficiencies or lender Fiat appraisals. The buyer willl need to be able, willing and capable of bridging the gaps that will appear in the 2013 market.
-
The seller presenting this question would be a significantly stronger position to impose his willl on the buyer in the 2013 market. The current seller sees that 'pay closing costs' and the potential of a low appraisal and will hit the reject button UNLESS the buyer demonstrates their power by overcoming these obstacles.

The difference 17 months can make.

Fred Herman answered:
you say that you were told that the sellers were taking the condo off the market. so you're getting the truth.

as others have explained, the property owner doesn't have to take the highest offer.

there are people at the local real estate board whose job is to investigate these matters; file a complaint. let them find out what really happened.

There are a few rentals in chicopee. For 800 bucks you may not get much. You can always check craigslist too.

Territory.com answered:
It is called a best and final offer. Next time put and expiration date and time on that verbal (or in writing) counter offer and you should get a quicker response. There are many reasons a seller could be taking their time. They could be shopping the deal around to other interested parties, taking time to think about the price and if they want to respond with another number or take your price.

Good luck!

Very difficult to do in today's market. But definitely should focus on speaking to a credit repair specialist. Ask around, many times a lender can or will help you if they think you may eventually come to them when your are ready for a loan. ... more

Russ Ravary answered:
Offers are looked at just not on price. A cash offer is usually the best offer in the eyes of many sellers. Other factors that come into play are: no inspection clause, no appraisal clause, higher amount of down payment, or the ability to buy the house even if the appraisal comes in low. So just because a buyer has a high offer price doesn't mean it is the best offer ... more
