I don't think that's the true question. If a seller states they will not accept any asking price offers is that ethical to list lower than what they are willing to accept, even if the house is not appraising? ... more

Jonathan Klurfeld, Esq. answered:
You have no legal right to the docs as you were not a party to the transaction; mortgagor or mortgagee. Frankly you have no legal standing to contest it either being a non-party. You have 0% to do with the loan between the old owner an lender; and lender has 0 legal duty to show you the docs (until produce in a court foreclosure possibly, but even questionable you have standing to defend the foreclosure as again you are not a party to the contract/loan).

Unfortunately you did not do your due diligence or even the most basic of title searches or use an attorney as the mortgage would have come up and you could have avoided this mess. Buying foreclosures is buyer beware, as is subject to any outstanding liens. There is nothing you can do if there is a mortgage that money is owed on except pay it off, whatever the balance they say is due, or rent out the property until the mortgage forecloses.

You asked a question so you were able to set up an account. You should have clicked under agent or broker. For now scroll to upper right, click on your picture ad go down to help center. This is also were you would enter new listings. You can also go to Zilow and enter there and they will also come on Trulia. Lastly another great way to promote your listings in on Active Rain, i placed a link below to sign up for free. You can then post your listings in blog form for extra promotion and marketing ... more

You may never know the problem.

1) Only 3 weeks so the property may not be fully exposed to buyers
2) No one wants you neighborhood
3) you are over priced
4) You are under priced so people are afraid to waste time
5) The photos of your house are crappy
6) the description of your property scares of people
7) Your agent sucks
8) Sales are slow where you are

I could go on and on I see properties sell within literally a week and down the street I see a property that has been on the market for 7 years. Only a local person can help you

Realtors don't include HOA fees on their listings because they want buyers to call them for that information. Realtors need leads & once you call, they will ask for your contact information first before answering your question on HOA fees. ... more

I love my Plantation Bay Home. It backs up to a beautiful wooded area. We are visited by deer and wild turkeys frequently. I enjoy golfing the 45 holes of golf on well maintained courses. The community here is active and very social. My husband plays tennis and golfs also. We have made many friends and love our home. ... more

Diane Christner answered:
In Florida you'll want to check the permits for the pool, to make sure everything was property permitted with the county, if it was not installed by the original builder of the home. You'll also need to verify by survey that the home was not built within any utility or HOA easements.

Pools now have to comply with certain safety rules about fencing, pool alarms, etc.

Your real estate agent should be able to answer specific questions for you OR know where to get those answers from a professional on that particular topic.

It seems houses sell before they hit the MLS, so I thought contacting several realtors to let them know my intention would be beneficial to catch the listing.
