Trulia does not accept FSBO listings by the homeowner, only by licensed real estate agents. Try Zillow instead.

Holly, there are a lot of programs now that lenders have to offer. I just helped a client in El Mirage get in to a home with Closing Cost and Down Payment Assistance. All in all she had to spend about $1,300 and ended up getting $1000 back at closing. NOT A BAD DEAL. :) So I recommend getting in contact with an agent or lender that has knowledge of the different type of programs out there and use them t your advantage. Best of luck! :-) ... more

Are you referring to 11201 N El Mirage Rd #825 El Mirage, AZ 85335?

I don't see anything in the description regarding leased land, so I would assume the lot is owned until you hear differently. ... more

Jeffrey Masich answered:
A BPO is a "Brokers Price Opinion" on the current value of the home. The value is estimated by the broker based on the location, condition, features and size of home in relation to the recently sold values of homes in the area.

The lender will order an appraisal or a BPO which are different. Yes, a fee to the independent party that provides the services is to be expected.

Your lender will look for a certain equity value before considering dropping the PMI insurance. Each lender has different requirements based on your credit situation and the collateral value of the home.

H Ahwatukee Skies:

It is not that unusual for the buyer or the buyer's agent, more likely, to want to dictate which title company is used. They might just feel more comfortable with a particular title/escrow officer. It does impact your fees, though, so you might want to compare title company fees before you agree or not.

As to the fee and 9%. Extremely high for this market. Realtors lost a law suit many years ago which means they are not suppose to have set fees. Reality is, most start with the idea of splitting 6% amongst them, so for yours to have 9% AND $2,500 seems out of whack. I have a few good realtors I could put you in touch with, who could give you a better sense of what the going rate would be. A bit late in the process, but you should always shop around for a good realtor. They vary greatly in their level of professionalism.

Good luck.

Buying a house in this market can indeed be tricky. With the gambit of short sales, REOs and limited inventory you really need a good savvy realtor to take you out on the town!

Good luck with your endeavor!

Saleem - your answer assumes the Short Sale Addendum was used. If it wasn't then the buyer cannot cancel at any time ... a short sale contract signed by buyer and seller is an executed contract, the contingency that the lender must approve the short sale is only that - a contingency. ... more
