Won't be using or referring your site anymore.
Plastering the agents box over the picture 'requiring' you to sign into it to remove it, is unacceptable.

Judy,
If you want to do it well, take the classes to get a real estate license. Find an office and go to work learning the business for a few years and then you'll be ready. A site like this can't begin to prepare you for all the legal, safety, marketing, pricing, negotiating, paperwork, inspection, title, escrow, lending, appraisal and other issues that are involved with the typical sale.
I know it seems like a good idea, but for most people it's not. A great agent, not the first one you come across, but a truly experienced, knowledgeable and helpful agent is worth more than whatever commission you pay them. A bad agent or none at all may cost you way more than just a commission.
Best of luck however you proceed.

Home Owner's Association (HOA) fees can be both yearly and monthly. Most often in condos, townhome developments and co-ops they are monthly with occasional special assessments for unplanned or extraordinary circumstances.

Annual fees (here in the Chicago area) are usually in developments where what the association is responsible for is minimal. In these situations, homeowners are responsible for their own snow removal, exterior maintenance on their home or unit and refuse service. The annual fees cover things like streetlights and insurance for common areas.

Each development has its own practices. I'd recommend researching what the fees are and to obtain a copy of the HOA financial report from the management company.

Long distance won't be a problem, but there certainly might be other BIG LENDER issues. Given the option, I'd pick a smaller lender in the area you're moving to every time! Best of luck... ... more

It is still showing as pending on the Realtor's mls. It went pending Jan 27th. It takes 30-45 days or more to close, depending on type of financing.

Hello,
Realtors are NOT allowed to disclose what the accepted offer amount is on any property. This is a law. We are only able to disclose if an offer has been accepted on it. This home located on 7969 W Glendale Ct in Dunnellon is currently Pending (meaning the sellers have accepted an offer on it). It has been in Pending status since Jan. 27, 2014 so this just happened recently. Also, this home is not a shortsale or foreclosure.

Thank you,

I just took a look on the MLS for a partial street address of 98th lane in Dunnellon and came across an address of 12990 SE 98th Ln in Dunnellon for $199,500. It was built in 2011 and has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a 2 car garage. This home was under contract with a previous buyer and the contract fell through and it is back on the market again as of January 17th, 2014. It is not a shortsale or foreclosure. Please advise if this is the home you are referring too. I live and work in the Dunnellon area if you would like to see it. An appointment will be needed since it is occupied.
Thank you,

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
Regarding "how much I will receive at closing", there is only one answer...nothing.

A short-sale is only done when the home is worth less than what is owed on it, therefore the bank agrees to short-sale knowing they will take a loss, and NO money will be left for the seller. Matter of fact, many times the seller has to bring money to the closing table to satisfy the bank agreement for short-sale.

If you think that all your investment in the property has brought its price to a place where it can be sold for some profit, then you must do a normal/standard/traditional sale. Where the lender gets paid off after the sale and any left over money is actually the sellers profit. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".

Linda, Depends on the value of the home and what similar homes in the area are selling for. I always prefer to look at similar properties in the same area or similar area and then only look at properties that sold in the last 3-6 months. Based on that, offer a fair price.
Good Luck!!

Stephen McRory answered:
I would circumvent the Listing Agent and go knock on the door on a Sat afternoon with a Pre Approval Letter and Good Faith Deposit Escrow Letter and hand it to the seller or leave it on their door.

Include your email and phone number or your Mortgage Broker's info and deal with the Seller directly.
