Hire an Exclusive Buyer's Agent to represent you, not a regular buyer's agent. EBAs represent homebuyers only, so there is no conflict of interest to jeopardize your negotiating position. Contact http://naeba.org for a referral to an EBA who will give you valuable advice, not a sales pitch.

Yes, it is a good time. Mortgage rates are still low and it's not hard to get finance. Prices are stable and going up about 0.5% a month, so if you wait it will cost more. I'd be happy to help in Saint Cloud or Kissimmee. Click on my picture and read my reviews. ... more

A mortgage lender is not going to finance furniture, so yes technically it is a problem, but doesn't seem like a very big one. Discuss with your lender.

I agree, bad idea. Newest fraud in Florida is people who are not the property owners renting our properties. At least with a complex/agent the info is typically verified that the owner is the owner. ... more

Libby,

I suggest looking at what your contract says. There will be a section that states who pays for what at closing. You can also ask the title company and/or your lender if this is a normal fee charged to buyer in this circumstance.

Good Luck

I definitely agree with David R. Dent, that your realtor should have upheld their responsibilities for your safety reasons. Simultaneously, a perspective buyer has to do their own ";due diligence", riding through the potential property's neighborhood; particularly at night. I seriously doubt that Florida is a place where anyone wants to be fingered as reporting any drug activity to police; although it is annoying; and before you know it they'll be encroachments in addition to not having "your rights to quiet enjoyment", at home. Try to get out of the sale before too late. ... more
