Hi Agmwoodworking,

You could purchase this with conventional or FHA financing, as both allow a family member to co-sign on the mortgage and be add more qualifying income. We help people out in this situation quite often. Feel free to contact me.

You can try. The problem is making sure that the Realtors KNOW about your open house. Normally, when we run a Broker's Open... we publish the dates/times in the MLS, so all the agents see it.

Make sure you take flyers to local agencies, to make sure agents know about your Broker's Open. (Don't go too early... we don't have a long attention span)... if normal Broker's Tours are on Tuesdays in your area... make sure the flyers are there on the Sunday prior.

You may want to offer "finger-food" (donut holes, danish, bottled water... that sort of thing)

Now... assuming you're successful... what are you going to do... hire an agent based on their personality at the open?? Just because someone dressed nicely, or spoke to you kindly, or complimented your decorating does not make them the "right" agent to list your home.

Ben Link answered:
I don't even understand your question.
Did the sale close?
If so, did you get a mortgage?
If you did, you got title insurance.

The title insurance will probably absolve you of any responsibility of previous liens, but I am not a legal expert. Contact the title insurance company. The mortgage lender would not allow the transaction to close without a clear title - clear of any liens on title. ... more

Market in Oceanside seems to be getting steady at this moment. Generally speaking, the higher interest rate climbs the " less" a buyer can afford. Flood insurance is another factor which can be a problem for potential buyer. I guess we wait and see what 2016 brings to us. ... more

No link is visible; however if looking at RealtyTrac ads, be aware that some of the information may not be reliable and can be misleading, some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be if the default is satisfied by the owner. Keep in mind that most foreclosures do end up being listed by a broker, therefore consider working with an agent of your own; for available area properties check which is the consumer version of MLS and not a third party site like the rest. ... more

Hello Henrietta.

Do you need help in using Does your office have MLS?

Just curious why a real estate agent would ask how to look for property on Trulia? I hope you have an exclusive buyer's agreement for that.

Good Luck.

That is a good question. My guess is that the seller has no idea how difficult it is to set up an appointment to see the property they have entrusted him/her to sell. That being said, you would think that they would want a sale and the only way to do that is to allo it to be shown! it is a frustrating situation for everyone involved. ... more

It is called Oceanside for a reason.

Oceanside is completely rebuilt as of July 2013 and values are back at pre-sandy values. There were some very good values to be had from Jan 2013 till like May 2013. I hoped you nabbed a bargain.

Most owners did extras while they had walls down and homes look better.

For instance I gutter my lower level and while I was at it moved walls and added upgrades I never would have done. Oceanside is not like Long Beach very few rental homes and vacation homes mainly primary residences. Folks either had flood insurance or got 31,900 payout from FEMA, it is zone AE so no homes had to be raised.

Oceanside is a HUGE value, great schools and great commute and low taxes and NEW inexpensive homes. My home is much better than pre-sandy. BUY BUY BUY
