No...but do a Google Search for Home warranty Companies in Michigan and you'll find the ones that do. Basically, almost all work the same so you want to focus on the sites that provide recommendations from their clients. ... more

Obviously, you won't get the loan so you basically have two options.. #1) Pay the difference.. you would really have to absolutely be in love with the house to do this or #2) ask the seller to come down to the appraised at price. If they don't and you back out..keep an eye on that property because I'm preety sure they will be convinced to lower the price. ... more

Andy Hargreaves answered:
From your question - and the comments from others -- you're probably selling via a short sale.
Any good buyer agent will write in there that the inspection will be done after 3rd party acceptance, which you probably just got.

The buyer is correct, as is your agent -- give the EMD back. Move on, find a new buyer and call it a day.
As others have stated -- you are wasting time with a buyer who will only prevent you from getting another offer from a buyer who will want it.

You probably have a marketable home with an approved amount, so it should be much easier for you to put it back on market and get an immediate buyer in place.

Happy selling!

A pre-approval means that in your current situation, you are approved for a specific amount. What is the reason for the "50/50". Make sure this lender isn't just spitting out useless pre-approval letters, so you don't waste your time and money, the sellers time and money, and both agents' time and money. Find a reputable lender that can tell you if you are truly preapproved and if not what you need to do to get pre-approved. ... more

You are asking the WRONG question.
Instead of asking, "Who can I complain to?" you should ask yourself, "How can I buy one of these homes?"
The reality is, homes that are priced below market value, usually those in need of extensive updating are EASILY sold. I have two active institutional investors, more then five regional investors and several "I wanna flip a house' citizens ready to put their money on the table. When they don't, I'll put my money on the table.
You as a potential buyer can be one of these SERIOUS buyers. But you must PROVE yourself to be a SERIOUS buyer.
#1. Serious buyers don't remain anonymus..they pick up the phone.
#2. Serious buyers have proper expectations.
#3. Serious buyers KNOW what they want. "Looking for a deal' won't do.
#4. Seriuos buyers have the resources....that means MONEY.
#5. Serious buyers are quick decision makers.
#6. Serious buyers know they must COMPETE or PAY for the privelege of not competing.
#7. Serious buyer realize getting an early options puts them ahead of the race.
#8. Serious buyers don't complain about losing, they strive to become more competitve.
#9. Serious buyers work with professionals
#10. Serious buyers use serious resources and leave the playthings of entertainment sites behind.

Bonus value: Serious buyers build a team of professionals who will collaborate and cooperate in sharing information and resources. THis team will quickly EXPEL complainers.

You are absolutely right. By the time YOU see a home for sale it has already been marketed to 5 levels of buyers before you ever see it. When you do see the really good is way too late. Your choice is to prove you are qualified to be on the FIRST LOOK option of area real estate professionals.

Looking for someone to complain to will not get you closer to buying a house.
Blaming your failure to buy a home on real estate agents reveals you have no knowledge how distressed homes are acquired and sold. Somehow, you need to recalibrate yourself and prove you are a serious buyer and team up with the pros...that is, those who do not know you wrote this question. Why? Becuase you are already looking for someone to blame. When you make a truley bone-head decison. you will again, look for someone to blame. That does not make for a good team member.

Hello Roads,

You can get a 5% percent conv. loan providing you meet the credit and income requirements set forth by your lender.

This will change your monthly payment some.

How Large Is the Brokerage?

This i the question I would ask. In a large brokerage with 50+ agents, the broker may very well be highly occupied with keeping the business running without any bumps in the road. A smaller brokerage may not have this issue as some brokers run a one-man show and are little different than agents other than they have hung out their own shingle. Such brokers might provide a little more attention that you might be looking for. ... more

FHA really isn't credit score driven, it's the Banks and Lenders that set those score requirements. There are a few lenders that go down to 580 with FHA, I personally have closed on several homes with clients around and under 600. I recommend all my clients that have credit issues to check with The Lenders Network, check them out. If anyone can get you approved they can! ... more
