Djash01,
This Realtor (Jeffrey Sklar) is right on the money. I know there are a lot of people out there with the "do it yourself" attitude to maybe try and save a few bucks. But in the real estate world today, you have to have representation. It just depends on if you want to be represented before or after you have a problem. Call a Realtor, and protect yourself BEFORE you have issues. I have worked with this Realtor/Broker before, and he will take good care of you and keep your interest safe from the courts.

Djash,

All of the answers are good except for Don's. While I am not an attorney, I did own a property management company up until the end of 2012. You are required by NRS 118A.460 to inventory, move, and store anything left by a former tenant. If you do not do this, you incur civil and criminal liability. You do need to spend the money and you can recover the money from the tenant when the return to retrieve their goods OR you can sell the possessions after proper noticing to recover those costs. Be sure to contact an attorney for legal advice before doing the sale.

Thank you,

Dear Sjash01,
I normally sign a 4-6 month listing agreement with my clients, only because it usually takes that long to complete the process. At the moment, property in Los Angeles is selling faster then normal so a shorter agreement might be beneficial. When you interview the various Realtors, let them know your concerns and what you would like to do. I'm sure you will be able to come to some agreement with one of them. The listing agreement has a start and end date, so make sure they are what you want.
When it comes to purchase agreements and the other documents, they are 'pr-printed' with the dates, but some of the time frames can be changed.Just read them carefully and make sure they say what you want them to say.

An AIDT is a form of creative financing.

There is also Lease Options, Contract of Sale, OWC, etc.

If you need assistance finding a seller willing to do creative financing please let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Robert Adams answered:
I have experience with AITD's.

There are new laws that will take effect Oct 2013 regarding foreclosing you should read up on (AB300 and SB321 are a few).

Have you had someone tell you the current value of the home vs what you owe? Prices here have skyrocketed since January 2012, so you might not be in as bad of shape as you are thinking.

If you email me the address I can run the comps for you and tell you what it is worth. Also, keep in mind since it is a hot seller's market we can often times sell your home for more than appraisal value.

Please feel free to contact me directly below or fill out our seller's form here: http://lvrealestatehelp.weebly.com/selling-real-estate.html

I look forward to hearing from you.

Jeffery Sklar answered:
As always, I am not an attorney, nor do I play one on tv. Having said that, do not construe this as legal advice and consult with an attorney. Here is what I know from prior dealings:

Almost all lawyers carry E and O insurance. (Errors and Omissions for those that don't know.) If an attorney gives you incorrect information, makes an error or an omission, while acting as your attorney, you can make a clain against the insurance.

My advice, find a new attorney and look into a settlement.

Chad Roberts answered:
In the Las Vegas/Henderson area, it is considered to be a 'sellers' market. It is a wonderful time to sell your home, pending your current circumstances and when you purchased your home (height of market or lowest point). Trends do show that selling a home before the beginning of the school year, in the summer, tends to be beneficial.

Mary Preheim answered:
Any penny less than the "payoff" of your mortgage would have to be agreed by the bank, which would be a "short sale" as it would be "settled for less than balance owed". You may want to get a professional market analysis done to determine if you can cover the payoff. You may be surprised. I have had 3 in the last month that thought they were short sales that ended up walking away with $5k-$25k in cash at closing! The bank will not negotiate without an offer and most of the time, not without it being listed by an agent to show that it has been marketed property to potential buyers.
If you are considering a short sale, I invite you to get more answers at www.LasVegasShortSaleAnswers.com but if you want a traditional sale, I invite you to contact me so we can discuss how we can cover your payoff and get you cash at closing.
Best of Luck!

Mary Preheim answered:
You need to go past the servicer and go to the underlying investor. You can request that information from BofA but you may not be able to get it from them easily. You can go to 3 of the most frequent used sites and note holders to check first to see who your underlying investor is:
www.fanniemae.com/loanlookup
www.freddiemac.com
www.mersinc.org

If no results are found, we can do a title search to possibly see as well. The investor who owns your note is the one who makes all the decisions.. go to them directly to negotiate. The servicer is just the middle-man relaying the information back and forth. Another key point is to see if there is mortgage insurance. You may not be paying mortgage insurance, but your lender could have placed a policy on your loan at any point and be paying it themselves. Just ask BofA and see, if there is then that is another level of approval you must get through.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, no pressure to use my services...just free advice!
Best of Luck!

Nakia Woodson answered:
Hello,

It seems that you waited too long. While the $50 per week was being added you should have contacted the HOA. The only thing you can ATTEMPT to do is dispute the amount with the HOA and the collection agency and file something in court to attempt to stop this. However, it may be futile at this point. The Courthouse has a self help center, open daily from 8 am to 4 pm. You may want to stop by and speak to the attorney.

Good Luck,
