In my experience calling other agents to sell your home when you have already listed your home with another agent can send the wrong signal, and perhaps offend the others agents while stepping on your agents toes, I would not use this strategy. I would however ask your agent to post to their social media if they have not already then ask your friends, family and co-workers to like and share the post on their social media. Ask your agent to print some flyers then pass them out around your neighborhood, ask local stores and restaurants if they would allow you to post or leave flyers in their place of business. I am NOT a Realtor and only offer loans in Florida so I suggest you discuss this topic with your Realtor in more detail. Hope this helps, God bless! Psalm 20:4 ... more

It's not essential but you'd be surprised at how bothered buyers can be by paint colors. Depending on how loud or bright they are, they can distract buyers from being able to see the bones of your house.

The condition of your paint matters too. We painted right when we moved in to our house 8 years ago. Life and small children have definitely left their marks on our walls. We're having the house painted when we move out if for nothing else, to make it look fresh and clean.

It will differ based on a few different things, including the severity of the damage, the materials that will be used for the repair, and how much the company charges for labor. I would suggest talking to a variety of companies in your area to get quotes from them, and then make a decision based on that information. You should be able to get all of the help you need that way.

Realty Trac is only interested i n selling yu a subscription. they also offer erroneous advice on how to bu a foreclosure directly from the bank. Most foreclosures today are handled through qualified listing agents that have been preapprove by the service. With MERS and bank consolidations these foreclosures are very complicated and often require weeks or months of title work just to be marketable. Don't be fooled.

I hope you have a buyers agent and should follow their direction. The seller is required to let you inspect the property as outlined in the contract you submited. The time lines for the inspection and other contengentcies are tied to how the contract was prepared. Review thses time frames.

The choices that you have are:

Have your agent contact the other agent verbally to get it moving forward.

Send an ammendment indicating that if can not get in property you will place the seller on notice of defect

Send notice of defect , this notice needs to be sent prior to the expiration of time frames outlined in your contract. This will kill the deal if done withing the time frames.

Again discuss this with your agent. If the seller does not want you to inspect you need to be concerned. Your agent may have other approaches to address the issue but watch out for the time frames in the contract.
