Your home will continue to show as "For Sale" until the status is changed to "Pending" by your agent. This is done after all of the contingencies in the contract are satisfied.

Dan Tabit answered:
Carol it's not up to the Realtor, it's up to the lender. Most Realtors know little about loans. As a formerly licensed lender, the rules and programs changed so much I had a hard time keeping up with them and being a full time agent.
Now I've attached a link to the USDA site where you can check out the rules and regs and see if you qualify. There are location limitations, rural properties as they define them, and income limitations, based on some regional norms. Both you and the property must fit their guidelines to get approved.
As you read over the site you'll have questions. A great local lender who has experience with these loans will be able to answer them and explain the program to you more fully.

Margaret Labus, REALTOR answered:
In Walworth County (where Lake Geneva is located) there is a county-wide ordinance that homes zoned Residential cannot be rented out for less than 30 days at a time to the same party. You won't be able to rent weekly or nightly to different parties. And if you do rent out there are some local municipalities that can charge a "room tax" and require some additional inspections by the building inspector. There has been talk about doing away with this ordinance, but there is strong homeowner opposition to it to prohibit "party houses" next door. See below:
http://www.gazettextra.com/news/2010/may/21/walworth-county-studying-policy-short-term-rentals/

However, there are some residential homes in business zones that would allow short-term rentals, but these are usually difficult to find. If you have any further questions, please contact me - I'm happy to help!

a little more information:
The condo fees for the single family homes do not include yard care or snow removal. There are 3 different companies that you can contract with though that come in weekly for a very reasonable fee.

Let me know what else I can answer or if you would like to see the property. My direct email is rmoen@remax.net
