Hello Girl answered:
I think the form that has yet to be signed is the New York State disclosure form for a buyer and seller. If we go into contract without signing this form, what does that mean for the listing agent? Are they still entitled to their full commission or can we slip in our own buyers agent at this point? ... more

Kathy Hellberg asked:
Value of the house at the time of death for income tax purposes according to her accountant. Why would someone need this if you are allowed to inherit? Who would do this kind of appraisal?

All across the United States, the county sheriff's office within the areas of the foreclosed homes will have that list for you and it is always available to the public.

Brook S. answered:
Every part of the property would have to be allowed to be inspected for appraisal purpose. If anything would be wrong with the pool, as in it had any major cracks (if it's an inground pool) then the cost of fixing it should be included in the sales prices. Any estimated repair costs to a house should be included as a deduction to the sale price. When you buy any property you have to ask "why" questions when the seller refuses to disclose information or allow inspections. Also inspection requirements are based on state laws so have your attorney look into it for you. If the seller refuses completely or to explain why, and the state allows this, then don't buy that house. Obviously the seller is hiding a major problem that would lower the price of the sale. Good luck to you. ... more

Hello Chris.

Tough situation, but not too difficult. As long as you go to the right mortgage broker, or loan officer, it should not be a problem, but you need to do certain things BEFORE you do your loan process, so that if anything comes up from the banks, you can fix them in advance.

If you are still in need of a real estate agent, let me know, and we can find you the home right for you.

Keep the house as is with three bedrooms; that way it's much more appealing to a much larger pool of potential buyers...

Typically it should take 90 days. Other factors play into this which can cause the selling period to
take longer. Some of the causes are: price, condition of home and seller's motivation. Hope this
answers your question.

Listing with an agent will give you the most exposure and the most
for your money. With a CMA report can tell us the best clue of what your
home is really valued at the current market.

Most sellers chose agent they feel conferrable with. Interview a
few agent and ask them all the right question. Part of the work is
trust and discloser when they work for you.

You will be better served by working with a Buyer's Agent to represent you in a purchase. The listing agent has a fiduciary responsibility to the seller, and is only obligated to treat you fairly. They will be negotiating on behalf of the seller, not the buyer. ... more

Take a look at your contract, there is an on or about closing date on the contract. The buyers/sellers have 30 days from that date to close before either party is in violation of the contract. For an answer more specific to your situation you should consult with your attorney or REALTOR. ... more

If you like the house, the location, and will be happy there go for it; there are plenty of people who don't care about basements. Stop listening to others opinion and go with your gut.

NO, your deposit is deposited into the escrow account as soon as the contract becomes ratified by all receiving all parties signatures putting the home under contract.

There are a few options we can explore. You could try and negotiate a sellers concession, or an easier method would be to take a higher rate in order to receive a larger lenders credit which is applied towards your settlement costs. If you'd like to weigh out some real figures to determine the most cost efficient method please contact me via phone or email. I look forward to helping.
