You didn't "accept" the seller's counter. You put forth a new question... even if your agent had given your question in a more timely fashion... you hadn't sent an "acceptance".

In the meantime, an offer the seller was willing to accept came in.

I don't see anything either illegal, nor unethical in this practice. It's a shame that your agent didn't act more quickly.. did you ask him "why" he delayed?... but unless you were prepared (after hearing the answer to your question) to say "Okay... I'll take it".... and follow that up immediately in writing... you might still not have gotten the property.

You could write a back-up offer, just in case something goes wrong with the first offer. That's your recourse.

If it is your land ... you can remove obstacles of your choosing to allow removal of the mobile home. Since it is your land, you are required to maintain unobstructed access for the tenant.

If the current tenant leaves owing you money .... you will have to sue that tenant. How do you expect to force someone new to make good on a bad debt they had no part of?

If the lender foreclosed on the trailer ..... they usually haul it off immediately. If they ask you to keep it in place for resale ... they should have a rental agreement in place with you.

You can't charge them for any time it is caught up in the courts ... as that is against the guy the foreclosed on.

If they are legal occupants .... they are entitled to peaceful enjoyment of the property.

If they are tenants, their lease with the current owners should allow for showings/inspections with advance notice. ... more

Thank you. That's a passionate and convincing reply. It must be bad statistics info in wikipedia- which of course can often be wrong. I will report it to wikipedia, and find out more info on Murphy. :) ... more

Victory Property Management answered:
What makes owner financing appeal to many borrowers is that they will not have to give a full 20% down payment. In exchange, the lender (aka the property owner/seller) will charge 1 to 2% above conventional mortgage interest. The current mortgage rate is 3.61%. So 5% is reasonable.

If you can get a buyer to pay 20% down, then by all means go for it but many buyers will want to put less.

Land has still not fully recovered its market value since the crash. Most likely the price will still be low, but to truly determine what the market worth is, you will need to contact an agent to give you sold comparables. If I can assist you, please do not hesitate to ask.

They do have internet access but they do not allow the general public to access it, if that is what you are asking.

This area of the county would generally only have ATT&T services for internet. My educated guess would be dial up. Most of us pay for satellite internet thru either Dish/Sky Tec (local reseller) or Directv. if I can be off more assistance please call me at Coldwell Banker High Country Realty 828-361-2423 or or 828-233-5562 which is my direct office number and rings all my #'s. ... more
