The guidelines require heat in the home. A wall furnace might be your best option. Contact a few contractors for pricing!

Seller can keep the $.
Because the buyer has a change in family plans has no baring on a contract. Unless it was addressed in the purchase and sale that they could back out for any reason at any time. ... more

First, do not worry about selling the home with past due property taxes. As long as there is enough equity they will be paid off during the transaction. Second, I would run a preliminary title report to see what are the liens placed on the property and what if any are the selling restrictions (also review the contest rules as Caroline mentioned). Third, I would talk to a tax professional. They may be some capital gains tax benefits from owning the home for 2 years. I would also get tax advice on the cost basis and income taxes due. From all this information along with estimated selling proceeds you should have a idea of what your mom will net. Then you can develop a plan on selling the home. I would be happy to answer any questions or help you crunch the numbers. You can contact me through my profile.
Good luck,

Hi, Ken, your Realtor and you know exactly what your specific purchase agreement says, we don't. Your Realtor should be the one advising you on how to handle your situation, which will probably include advice to seek legal counsel. If there is a dispute, a judge or arbitrator may decide the issue, and no one can ever guarantee how any particular case will be decided. Best of luck to you! ... more

Usually never and in the rare case, only with the owners permission, most often accompanied by a hold harmless signed by the buyer and insurance if anything is being put in the home

Hi Recincy,
It does not cost to post on Trulia. You have to post it on Zillow which owns Trulia and it show up on both sites. Please email me through my profile if you have any selling questions. Although the market has slowed a bit, North Tustin is still a high demand area.
Good luck,

Hi, William!
The answer to this questions lies within you, and what you want to net from a sale of your home. Removing popcorn ceiling runs around $2.00/square foot, and I see that your home is approximately 1638 square feet. Therefore, you will incur an expense of around $3200 for this. Will you see this return at closing? That depends.... how many other updates does your home need? Flooring, paint, kitchen, bathrooms? If the popcorn ceiling is the last upgrade you need to make, then yes, it worth the money. HOWEVER, if there are still other updates needed, save your money, and let the buyer renovate as they see fit. When removing popcorn, most people want to put in recessed lighting as well, another expense.

I would be happy to provide with a free, no-obligation consultation. I can tour your property, and provide you the most current market information. This will allow you to make an educated decision on how to proceed.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience to arrange an appointment!

answered:
Sounds like a direct lender, as a broker we are required to use an appraisal management company (amc) What that means if the appraisal was not fair, we can contest it. A direct lender often does not use an amc and you may not contest it. If there was an amc then have your loan officer, prepare comparable and a written request for a correction made to the amc. The amc then will approach the appraiser.
Basically, by law the lender may not talk to the appraiser about it, and with no third party in there, nothing can be done.
For example, on the solar panels, the appraiser assumed they were leased and therefore should hot add value for them. If you paid cash for them, and there was no amc you can not get a correction. On the other hand if they were leased, then the appraiser should not have added value for them.

All you can do is try with a different lender and hope they do not send out the same appraiser.

If you would like, you can give me a call and we can review the value together and see if it makes sense to try again. My phone is 714-968-2500

Rich Reed answered:
Selling agents represent Buyers, so they wouldn't be listing the property. You probably mean Listing agent. If the Seller wishes to pay for it, I would say it's a great idea! If the Seller doesn't want to pay for it, then if the property goes under contract, the Buyer would probably order an inspection and the Seller would be entitled to a copy at no cost.
"listing agent" (acting exclusively for the seller), "selling agent" (acting exclusively for the buyer), or "dual agent" (acting for both the buyer and seller)

Good morning,
Yes, it is possible to sell the property during the foreclosure process. Depending on the circumstances, the sale may stop the process while the sale is completed. The sale route is often better for everyone including the banks. Please contact me through my profile if you have questions.
Good luck,
