Why are you wanting to terminate your listing agreement? Is it something that your agent isn't delivering? I would suggest that you talk to her/his broker.

It sounds terrible. My suggestion is a few.
First, maybe partner up with someone that could supply the costs or even the expertise to do the repairs that would increase the valu9e to over what you owe. If there is equity aftwards, split it with them.
Second, maybe offer the home on a lease option or buy to own. Offering terms like this will allow someone who may not ordinarilly qualify for a home thru conventional means, the chance to own. These folks are less concerned (or should be) about the price and more focused on the opportunity you present.
Third, maybe see what the rental market offers.
Fourth, Texas is tough as they don't allow for loan to values to exceed where others will.
Fifth, if you refinance the house with a construction loan, or an FHA rehab loan, it will lend you the money to refinance existing debt, lend you the funds needed to fix the house and base the loan on the value "as improved" Meaning they will lend based upon what it's worth after the repairs.
Hope this helps.

Texas is a non disclosure state so estimates on either free website is not going to be accurate. If you are trying to sell your home then it's best to work with a local realtor to assist you and get you comps. Every home is different in terms of updates so the realtor may need to walk through your home to to determine the best comps for your property.

I'm a local realtor and I'd be happy to assist you if you are not currently working with a realtor.

Where's your realtor? You should discuss this with your realtor as she/he knows the details of this transaction. Did buyer back out during the option period?

Usually corporate buyers (people that buy 10 or more homes per year) are looking for a steep discount, so that they can make margin on a resale.

They offer speed of purchase in exchange for a lower than market price. ... more

Kitellecat answered:
I am not sure whether the Title Co - (Republic Title) - overcharged me. There is an amount of $1255.29 for "city taxes. This is NOT property tax. I see that they have also charged me for the remaining half year payment of property taxes which matches the amount I had figured upon.

I am questioning this other amount of "city taxes" because the full 10 years I lived in that house I never paid and separate city tax! Now I feel that the title co has made up fees in order to fleece me of the full amount I was to receive.

I already had to pay out the realtor commission fees of approx. $8,600!
Selling my house it seemed like everyone had their hand out for some money!
It makes me sick!

Carol Ellis answered:
I understand your concern about home showings. Your real estate listing can reflect that only serious or qualified buyers be shown your home. I wouldn't restrict the time that it can be viewed, because if it is a serious, qualified buyer coming to look at your home with an agent, it's best to let them come. If it is priced competitively, you could get an offer quickly, and won't have to endure a lot of showings. ... more
