If you are unable to obtain a mortgage loan, I do work with an investor who does rent-to-own. He requires a minimum $10,000 down payment on a home though.

Best of luck!

How bad is bad? If your scores are below 530, there's not much a bank can do. If above that, we have to see what your income allows you to borrow. I'm assuming you don't have a mortgage on the home now and are wanting cash out. You may use up to 85% of the value of the home on an FHA cash out deal. Where ever you decide to go, please remember that no one is allowed to charge you an application fee. contact us for a loan email: oceanicfinance113(at)gmail. com ... more

It was published in the Dailies earlier this month that between March and now the percentage of the population with perfect credit score has increased by 30% the reason is because many have been paying to get their credit repaired. TRUE try to consolidate your credit so everything can be on a perfect stand with a golden score at least 790 within a few days. All repairs are PERMANENT. This can only be achieved by the smartness and concentration of the credit hacker BOMvirus (+12055983011) who has assisted several people in this regard. I was able to buy a home thru his voluntary help. He became a trusted advisor to me. I got my credit increased up to 798 and from then on my whole story changed. I had enough money to stand on my own, I had my very big dream come true. Right now my family and I live in a house of our own and I also have two other houses on rent along side this year 2018. This is one of my biggest achievements ever although what I paid can not be compared to what I received from him out of his kindness. Contact him directly through his work mail ( ... more

My Dad and Mom passed away leaving their estate to be split between my brother and I. I have been living with my parents but now have to give my brother half of the value of the house in order to keep the house. My cohabiting partner qualifies for housing through his work and is prepared to pay my brother out. I would like the house to be in my name for safety reasons in case of a split in our relationship as I have two sons who are dependant on this roof over their heads. How would a lawyer safeguard that the house not be sold if we split? ... more

Mark Wilson answered:
A total commission of 6% is typically asked for by “full service” Agents working for the big national real estate firms in Milwaukee, WI. 70% of Sellers list with the first Agent they speak to, and we find that most Sellers who agree to pay a full 6% commission do not realize that real estate commissions are NEGOTIABLE!

The national average total real estate commission in 2015 was 5.26%.

In Wisconsin, you will find the following real estate commissions charged:

Typical Asking Commission: 6%
Competitive Commission: 5.0%-5.5%
Very Competitive*: 4.5%-4.99%

* 4% commission can be negotiated on multi-million dollar properties


Real Estate Commissions are split between the listing Agent (who works for you to sell your home) and what will be offered on the MLS to any Agent that brings a Buyer to buy your home. In a typical 6% total commission, the listing Broker is paid 3% and 3% is offered on the MLS to all Agents working with Buyers (so they can see what they will earn if they bring their Buyer to your home and complete the sale).

When you meet with your listing Agent, also remember that, unless they are a “Broker/Owner”, they will have to split their commission with their employing Broker. High producing Agents can work up to getting 90% of the listing commission from their Broker, but typically less experienced Agents may only receive 50% of the listing commission.


At, we first negotiate on your behalf a competitive real estate commission structure with HIGHLY EXPERIENCED, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Agents who know your LOCAL market (even YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD); each ready to bid for your business. These Agents are not just ordinary Agents as many of them are broker/owners and they have the best ability to negotiate their commissions and be competitive, in part because they do not have to share their listing commission with the brokerage firm. This is a direct benefit to you and will save you thousands of dollars in real estate commission fees over the typical fees in WI.

I hope this information help and good luck to you in selling your home!

Matthew Guth answered:
he should pay rent and/or utilities to you. I would say 40 to 50% of mortgage and utilities total. You get the benefit of building equity in the home so I would not expect more than 50%. also have the maintenance of the home that is not monthly like needing a new roof or furnace etc. at some point that he would not need to worry about so you get pros and cons. Another way to look at it is if he had to live by himself and pay rent, utilities, internet, tv, etc. There should be a number that is a win for him and you. ... more
