First you talk to a local lender or bank who offers FHA loans. Then you start a loan app, submit documentation, and get pre-approved for a loan. Then you find a Realtor and go find a house, put it under contract, then after inspection, appraisal, etc. you get your loan approval after about 30-45 days from going under contract. ... more

Hi Deborah,

The simple answer is no, you don't have to use a Realtor. However, all Realtors, myself included, would certainly advise that you at least sit down with a Realtor and discuss your options. You'll find that not all of them always charge 6% commission...and the commission is always negotiable! Don't ever let them tell you otherwise. If they aren't willing to negotiate their commission to help satisfy your needs, then they aren't the Realtor for you.

I would love the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your options and current sales in your neighborhood. The consultation is always free, and can only help keep you informed prior to making the big decision.

Call or text me anytime.

Sally Grenier answered:
Are you a REALTOR?? It sounds to me like you are under contract with two buyers. When you received the 2nd offer, and presented it to seller, you should have discussed the two and the fact you had a counter out there possibly getting signed. I would have called the 1st buyer's agent IMMEDIATELY upon receiving the second offer, and rescindng your counteroffer. Talk to your managing broker ASAP. ... more

Ask your agent whether a USDA loan will replace a FHA loan.
I gather your Complex is no longer FHA certified.

Such a certification will take 60 days, time and money

Hi Mary,

Trulia doesn't allow for sale by owner listings. I would recommend using zillow.com or forsalebyowner.com to create your own listing as for sale by owner. If you want to use Trulia you'll need to be listed with a Realtor.

Good luck!

(From a similar post)

Trulia is a search engine for residential real estate listings that are indexed from agent/broker web pages. If you home is currently for sale on the site you will need to ask your agent to update the photos.

If your home is a public record on the site , Trulia receives all records information from a third party. Home facts and prior sales include information compiled from public records at local assessor, tax, and recorder offices. At this time Trulia cannot manually update this information including photos, only remove it from the listing.

If you have further questions or concerns please contact Trulia's Customer Service Team at 1-888-466-3501 or customerservice@trulia.com

As mentioned anytime is ok, spring is great for closings, so may want to list around Feb-Mar to be prepared for a closing in the spring. Keep in mind, houses sell when they are priced right...so if you are priced high when listing, you may not get the offers you expect or may take much longer as you adjust price down to get into a sweet spot for buyers.

I would recommend calling a seasoned agent and asking for their advice. One thing to consider is would it be worth it...Return on money or sell it as is. I would be happy to help you!

John DeFourny & Megan answered:
Wondering if you ever sold your Clintonville home. Many sellers in 2009-2012 opted to either stay or rent their properties but no one has a crystal ball. When it is a more difficult market, your agent has to be more hands-on and creative in the home's presentation and marketing. Plus having a local agent who can advise on how the neighborhood came through the last recession can be the difference! We specialize in Clintonville and know how to move what not's moving. If you have not sold, please give us a call. 614.267.7400. Hopefully you got your price when the market returned. ... more

Hear is where we employ the standard Realtor response "I would". Anytime you can eliminate an objection from your property this is a benefit when it comes time to sell. Radon is naturally occurring and the mitigating system will certainly reduce the levels to below the EPA recommended levels. ... more

Chris Anderson answered:
First, I would need to see your basement. But without seeing the basement, I would ask the following questions:

Do your Lower Level/Basement have an ingress/egress window(s) ? Does the basement have a sliding glass exit to the outside? Do you have a finished bedroom and bathroom in the basment? Is your Lower Level professionally finished with drywalled walls and ceilings or do you have a drop down ceiling and painted brick/cement walls? Is the cement floor merely painted or do you have a laminent or carpet covered floor?

Tle Columbus Mutliple Listing Service now also allows Realtors the opportunity to add additional finished square footage in a professional finished Lower Level.

Chris Anderson answered:
The best time to sell is the Spring. March, April and May are usually at the top of the List. But this year with Inventory levels very low.....February looks like a good time to hit the market with a saleable listing. That being said...homes sell 12 months a year. A lot depends on the urgency of the seller and their reasons for selling or moving. ... more
