Hello Bobbi Sanders,
Good morning.
This is a while back but, this could help you. What are the rates your paying on other items? Good morning. Are you still in the market to Refinance your home? If so, I would love to see if we can help you out. We can do loans down to 600 Credit Score. We also don't need 3 trade lines like many banks require. I would like to see if I can help you out with a home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process. Please let me know how to help out.
Thanks much.

Call a few local inspectors. Make sure they can do the inspection well before your deadline so you can have time to deal with what they find.

Local guys are most able to help with local potential issues. Also call a few, schedules and pricing will differ. ... more

Nicole lily 225,
I can surely tell you that brokers spend a lot of money marketing the homes and always working with buyers and sellers. We do this day in and day out! Realtors are always working with qualified buyers and know the current market. It seems to me that the comparable in your area are selling for less.

Need any more help don't be afraid to ask.

Jules, Nan is right about anything can happen. We just had a similar situation with a short sale I am handling. It turns out an appraiser came in with a value more in line with the listing price I originally proposed. So, the bank agreed to drop the list price. I hope that is what happened with your soon-to-be house.

Please talk to your agent about your offer. Often when a listing price is reduced there are more offers. You and your agent need to be on top of the situation and be prepared to react quickly.

Hello Jules and thanks for your post.

If you're the only buyer for the home and you're not located in an area where multiple offers are being submitted for homes, you can certainly represent yourself without an agent. To do this effectively, you should be aware of the protocol or procedures for making an offer and have purchased or prepared an offer with the assistance of an attorney or utilizing forms available to make an offer.

Based on the information in your question, the home in which you're interested is a short sale, isn't it? If this is the case, then you might have found it to be better to have an agent or Realtor familiar with short sales help you buy the home. In many cases, short sales are peculiar sales that require the expertise of both the listing agent and buyer's agent to obtain a successful close of escrow. Navigating a short sale without the assistance of a professional can be difficult, frustrating and, to be frank, ultimately not worth the wait in the eyes of many buyers.

If you submitted an offer with a contract prepared by an attorney or prepared by yourself with forms available through the stationery store, then you are representing yourself. However, if the listing agent prepared the forms for you to sign, you've just engaged the listing agent to be your agent in the transaction, and you will no longer be allowed to hire another agent for assistance. If this is the case, talk openly and frankly with the agent to discuss your expectations.

Good luck!
