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

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.

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).

Hi Kljennin,

A BPO is always ordered when a property is a Short Sale. The lender wants to know what the value of the property is based on recently sold comps in the neighborhood.

I have at a lot of showings and a couple of offers, but they were lower and I didn't want to come out of pocket of about 12K. I am fortunate I don't have to sell my house, but am looking to upgrade. That is why the FSBO looked attractive. Anyway, thanks everyone again for all the help! ... more
