Yes you can sell your home to whoever is willing to buy it. You are not allowed to discriminate against protected classes in the Fair Housing law.

Agree with Tony. Your Mom's only option is to either refinance so the title is in her name only or sell the condo and split the profit with the boyfriend's daughters.

The daughters will have to be told that the profit won't be as much as they expect because when the condo is sold, there are expenses that have to be paid and any profit will not be much. ... more

Trulia does not accept FSBO listings, your listing must be posted by your licensed real estate agent.

I would love to get some hardwood flooring in my house. I think it would be cool to have it in my kitchen. It adds a sort of rustic flair to the kitchen. I hope that my wife is on board. ... more

Just make sure that the lakes don't leach water in, around or under your home. This can and usually does cause you a lot of grief.

CMA does not provide value; it is an analysis that provides range of values. If you decide to use an appraiser make sure that he/she is local and knows the area very well. Appraiser who works multiple counties will not provide accurate value for you. You would be better off asking a Broker Price Opinion from an experienced Local broker with proven record of completing BPOs in your area. ... more

If there is a mortgage invlolved the appraiser is king. The bank is only going to lend on the appraised value.

In this building you may very well get a lot of cash buyers, it';s that type of neighborhood. This building overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway and does attract buyers who will be paying with cash.

The majority of the sales I see, do involve a mortgage, even when the buyer's have the ability to pay cash.

Has your property actually sold? Or, have you entered in to a contract to sell? Is the notice of commencement against the association or you personally? 4 properties in Brittany have sold and closed within the past 60 days. And, I've sold my clients property in Tuscany in Kings Point (this was 40 days ago) where there were multiple Notices of Commencement and the buyer's attorney reviewed the title. We had special language in the contract for sale mentioning the Notices so that the buyer and their attorney was made aware of this. I don't believe you should be facing any obstacles with this sale but I do suggest you contact an attorney for professional legal advice.

If you would like the name of the attorney and the title company that so ably handled this for me and my client please email or call me and I will give you the name.

Hello Mattornora -
Certainly having your condo priced realistiscally is a must in today's market. However, if you want to know what to ask a prospective agent, here are some questions you should consider......................
1. How many, and which, websites will the property appear on? Since nearly 85% of potential buyers check out the internet first, you want to have your condo on as many sites as possible - with the most photos.
For instance, Coldwell Banker properties are represented on 10 wesites!
2. Since is the most popular real estate web site does the agent have the branded package with them? Are they part of the "featured homes" program?
3. Ask the agent to show you examples of their marketing for previous listings......the MLS sheet itself......the photos added to MLS......the property brochure.........the mailings that the agent sent out.
By seeing what he or she has done in the past you can get a feel for what he or she would do for yours.
4. Besides the internet & personal marketing, what other networking can the agent do to get the unit sold? For instance, Coldwell Banker has offices throughout the US and in 49 countries throughout the world.
If you'd like more information, please feel free to get in touch. Good luck.

No...those are not "sales" those are Quitclaims.
Often someone gets married or divorced and they need to add/subtract their husband/wife from the deed.
Or a child is added on for estate purposes.

"Get our of your debts but buy it back at a cheap price?" is fraud
it is not arms length from one family member to another and therefore all parties in the transaction would go to jail. In this state, they do not take that lightly... there were literally hundreds of people arrested for mortgage fraud last year. There was one bust that got over 50 people all at once in a string of transactions.

Also - the foreclosure process will extend to ANYONE on the deed if the lien from the mortgagee (bank) is not paid off. So if a home is in foreclosure and you just transfer the deed, then you'll be in the mix as well.

Please let me know if I can assist you in any way.

Everard Korthals answered:
I saw an answer from Paula that triggered a reaction.She said look for one of the top 3 agents in your area.That looks good on paper,but keep in mind that those agents usually have many listings ,of which In these days only 50 % sells within the typical 6 months listing period.This number is a guess and determined by the local market and the price range.
To do a good job as a realtor you have to be able to spend time on the marketing ,updating of listings on several internet sites ,blogging about the listings,create print advertisements , communication ,coordinate contractors to improve /repair your house, etc.
Make sure that the realtor you choose actually is willing and able to do that for you.
