John Smith answered:
Just to add our agent now cannot get in contact with the lending company they will not speak with him. Our lending company for our new home tried to call them, he got back information that the buyers are high risk and apparently their lending company isn't even positive that the buyers can get approved for the mortgage.
I feel like their agent and lending company have been lying this whole time or at least withholding crucial information from us. I am now worried that they will not be approved and I have essentially wasted 3 months on this and quite possibly missed out on buyers who would be eligible to purchase my house.

I don't know the law in PA, but I'd be shocked if it only takes one party to sign off. If the other person is dead or incapacitated, a power of attorney or personal representative may be used in their behalf. Again, I'm not from your state and I'm only providing a guess, so check with your local Title Company for a free and objective answer. ... more

Brian F. Walsh Buyer's Agent answered:
The contract with your Realtor is probably an exclusive right of sale listing agreement. You should always contact a lawyer with specific legal questions, but the exclusive right of sale listing agreement pretty much says that if you sell your house he/she will be paid his commission. Generally, there is a cancellation clause, but even if there is not, contact your agent’s broker. ... more

Trulia only permits for sale listings to be posted by real estate professionals. If you want your home to appear here you will have to find an agent or broker to work with.

Of course you can sell your home without a Realtor, but you should take into consideration the safety risks along with knowing or not knowing if your potential buyer is qualified to purchase your home or not. Without a Realtor, you are inviting total strangers into your home that may not even be able to afford it. It shouldn't cost you a thing to interview a couple of agents. Then decide. Commissions are negotiable. ... more

Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more

That depends on your financial situation and your lender's willingness to allow you to own potentially 2 properties at once.

carriedi answered:
just say no. buying a home is a life changing decision. don't ruin your life by making a wrong decision like this. Unless you can pay cash for the house and then buy another home after you move, don't do it. Move to a bigger apartment and put your mother-in-laws name on the lease (not yours) until you move. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
I'm not sure what your question is. If you mean she's talked to several real estate agents and they've estimated that her home will sell for about $35,000--and several different ones have arrived at about the same number--then it's likely pretty accurate. She should ask the agents for the comps--for information on other similar houses that have sold, just to verify that the $35,000 figure is reasonable.

Hope that helps.
