Alan May answered:
A listing agent is allowed to follow the directions of his/her client. If the seller has said "I don't want to see any offers, unless they're cash", the agent can follow that direction.

It's possible the bank has made that request.

Hello Robmiller123, no you can not until you are owner. You should be very careful in putting in any improvements that you expect to benefit you financially until you own it. Many rent to own do not close.

You may consider 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score and 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. If you have lower scores you my consider 10% down FHA with fico scores between 500-579. Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You should check your mortgage qualifications with the web reference link below and become owner before any renovations...

Amelia Robinette answered:
are you also going to do the title search and record the deed yourself? are you going to pay the grantor's taxes and any local transfer taxes directly to the jurisdiction?

you should probably contact a settlement company in your area to handle these items, they'll be able to give you estimates for everything and take care of these important details. ... more

Amelia Robinette answered:
if you're an agent, you should be able to go to 'my listings' and edit the listing, or edit the data source, which is probably the MLS.

if you're a consumer, you need to go to the data source of the listing and make corrections. ask your agent to take care of it, or go to where ever you originally entered the info if you're FSBO ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
That means your marketing is working but people aren't seeing the value. It could be your marketing is creating false expectations. If a property boasts a view, but you can only see anything interesting from the master bedroom closet, it won't live up to expectations (I've seen this example).
If your pictures make the rooms look bigger than they are or the home looks different for showings than it does in the pictures.
Apart from that, price is the next most logical reason. It could be both. If you've had 21 showings or been on the market 21 days without an offer, something needs to change.

We won't be able to help you. No one knows your situation or who foreclosed on your property. You need legal advice. As such, your best bet is to see a real estate attorney. They can sort things out and inform you of rights of redemption and applicable timelines, according to state law.

Best of luck!
