No. I don't see any contingency wording here. I would VERIFY that the parking space will be deeded to you and that the sale is NOT part of the purchase contract but a separate addendum. ... more

my sister sold her 900,000 home herself. Think of the money she pocketed . Since she felt she was doing all of the work (no experience in Realestate) herself;pictures, staging, advertising, she should keep her earnings. She paid the flat fee on MLS and put it up on Zillow an Trulia. Zillow doesn't update properly by the way. Actually it was purchased by some walkers by. She held two open houses and the final buyers saw the sign. Key is get professional pictures don't do it yourself. The buyer does all the work, gets the closing attorney, look an arrangements ,, just Nike sure you get earnest money And read read read .
Hope that helps

You need a good real estate attorney in the area where the home is located. From now on, take the advice an attorney will give you: Do NOT talk or communicate with your ex.

Unfortunately, nobody online can offer you advice because this is a legal matter - not a real estate matter. What you should have done is never allowed your boyfriend to be on the title with you. That was a huge mistake. For this reason alone is why you need an attorney. ... more

Radon is not too uncommon in Georgia around Fulton County and surrounding counties. If your seller already has a mitigation system installed on the home then that shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure you are upfront with this information in your seller's disclosure. ... more

I have a home for sale in Pooler, GA. My agent, although licensed, is basically a property manager and has too many other projects and selling my home is not his priority. Can I co-list with a full-time realtor who will give my property his/her full attention. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
Unfortunately, the numbers you see on these sites are generated by complex algorithms and there really is nothing anyone can do. This is just a marketing website and they pull the data from various sources. And most of us pros know the data isn't very good nor accurate, which is why we always tell our buyers and sellers to never pay attention to these bogus websites! The good news is that most buyers will be working with a Realtor, who will be able to explain this to them if it comes up. ... more

Gail Lang answered:
We have no emergency like that, but our buyer's buyer wanted to close in 45 days. Our buyer apparently agreed with this, but there is some hold-up (no pun intended) at the bank, and closing will not occur in 45 days. With our lawyer's support, we don't feel the benefit (It's a nice thing to do for someone in a pinch), do not outweigh the risks (they may choose to back out of deal after moving into our house for a while, we could be sued if someone was injured on the property, we still own the house and would be responsible for it, we don't know these people so why would we trust them). We don't feel like this should be our problem. ... more

Greentekfirst answered:
Absolutely not. When performing due diligence when purchasing property in Georgia, or any state for that matter, you can do your own real estate title and lien search online. Do an online search for "Title search websites" and look for only "Organic" results for companies that have true authority on the subject. I.E. US Title Records

I would most definitely advise purchasing a title insurance policy once the Preliminary title search has been completed. (Also see Chain of title searches).

That is not what Trulia does. You can post your listings here and market yourselves. You should also set up accounts on Active Rain and start a blog to market. I put a free link below

As you know, the property remains in your possession until you close whether the paperwork is signed or not, potential squatters and all. You might notify the Alpharetta PD that your home is vacant. Some local police departments offer vacation watch provided they're notified. ... more
