MSHDA has down payment assistance up to $7500. There should also be a Community Action Agency in your area that, if you qualify, could get an IDA account for a down payment. Also check with banks, some have forgivable loans for down payment assistance (I know for sure Mercantile does). ... more

MCM_STL answered:
Why do any of them have your house listed at any of those values? Why is the value your local taxing entity uses for property tax purposes rarely true market value?

Answer: Because they each come up with a meaningless relatively simple algorithm that cannot possibly take into consideration all of the ways that your house is and isn't similar to your neighbors' recently sold houses.

It can't really know how big your neighborhood is to actually know what radius of homes are comparable to yours. It can't know the huge difference a few streets' worth of distance can make. It doesn't know a thing about the condition of any of the properties in question. It can't tell the difference between similarly sized lots that have very different amounts of useful yard. I could keep going.

In other words, chances are every single one of those values you've noted above are wrong. If any of them are right, it's pure chance.

They are not benefitting themselves if they do. I would call the agents broker and ask if they can assist. They agent may be green and needs some assistance.

Lorraine Hill answered:
I like them myself. If I am driving through a neighborhood and see several houses, the flyers help me compare houses side by side. But my realtor says you can't keep track to picks them up or if someone picks one up. My experience I thought my box would be empty all the time but it didn't look link any were taken and they just got wet and ruined all the time. So I see both sides, I don't know which is better. I myself hate automated phone messages, especially if it makes a pushy realtor call and bug me if I am just casually looking. But I see the realtors side and it helps them know how many people have inquired about the house. So I guess as a buyer I like the flyers, as a seller I like knowing if someone and how many people are interested in my house. ... more

Jeffrey Parks answered:
Short answer is yes. However, the instrument or document would be a "Deed in Lieu of foreclosure"
whereby the Homeowner would sign the property back to the mortgagee and have no further rights to the property. Each case has its own quirks, if you are considering this option I recommend you seek information from a local "experienced" or a "qualified" Real Estate Attorney. ... more

Diana Hellman answered:
Usually there is an agent working for seller(listing agent) and a different agent working for a buyer(buyer's agent). In these instances, the buyer's agent gives the offer to listing agent and listing agent working for the seller responds back to buyer's agent until a meeting of the minds occurs between the two parties. Sometimes the two parties cannot get to a point where the final price is acceptable to both parties. If the seller does not have their own agent, and a buyer does, then the seller would be negotiating with the buyer's agent. ... more
