Really depends! In New York City where I'm based, my friends have been having a lot of luck switching over to Mont Sky.

They seem to have been steadily taking over the residential sales market which has pretty much been under a death grip by the bigger brokerages in town. Had a few friends deciding between them and Compass, but ultimately decided on Mont Sky for the opportunity to work on verified sales referrals (i.e. buyers and exclusive listings), high commission splits (i think 75% starting to the agent) and top tier tools and training.

I don't think they build much of the software in-house like Compass, but at the same time I don't think they're spending as much on overhead if they can just outsource it by vendors who are already providing those services. To each their own. Good luck!

If he is on the deed then he will need to sign. Usually when you get divorced though, the settlement proceedings will dictate the division of property. If your wife was awarded the home then most likely the divorce decree says that her ex must sign away his interest in the property. It might say that he needs to relinquish that interest immediately or it might have said that could be done upon the loan being paid off (since regardless of the deed if he is on the loan he is still equally responsible).

I'd check the divorce decree, but either way it looks like he has to sign

If you are a For Sale By owner, Trulia does not allow listings. Try sires such as Zillow and Craigslist.

Good Luck,

Trulia only permits for sale listings to be posted by real estate professionals. If you want your home to appear here you will have to find an agent or broker to work with.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Your question is, "Why are the houses so cheap....."
You do not ask "....low priced..' or 'inexpensive.'
You choose the word...CHEAP!

if you choose you can be in denial of the definition of the word CHEAP.

That is OK. DENIAL is a common currency today.
Do you know most folks with Appalachia origins have an accent?
Are you familiar with the "Hatfields and McCoys?"
Is it possible there exists a stereotype of Kentucky other that what surrounds Lexington?
Is it possible the History Channels program "Appalachia Bush People" or "Outlaw Moonshiners" influences more people than the Kentucky Derby or the Blue Devils?

I am confident you believe those who sing My Old Kentucky Home with tears in their eyes do not have an accent, but everyone else does. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees.

Homes are less expensive in Paducah because it is Paducah.
Some prefer conch shells and tropical breezes.

Your question, properly stated, must read, "Why are homes less expensive in Paducah compared to Key West?" Now we've got something to work with.

I'm sure your loan prospects fell through when your status changed to UNEMPLOYED!!!! I know of no lenders that would have been willing to give you a mortgage when you didn't even have a job and it was with good reason. UMMMM, let me see, it might have to do with your ability to make the payments!!! And guess what, they were not so dumb cause you haven't been able to find full-time job and you say you are getting behind on your bills. Instead of worrying about buying a house, you should have spent your time looking for a job. Generally speaking, real estate prices are proportionate to the jobs in the area---how many there are and how well they pay. In other words, the cheap real estate in Paducah area should have sent up a red flag. DANGER Will Robinson! There are no jobs and the few there are don't pay diddly squat. Nuff said??? ... more

Avid Newsreader answered:
My daughter and her husband have proved there are ways around not having a credit rating.

They are in their 30's had never had a credit card account or a loan in their lives, and never had a credit rating with either home they bought. They had only very modest savings.

They have bought two homes successfully with home loans and no money down. The banks' loan officers used written documentation from their utility companies and rental landlords of their own-time payments to qualify them for a home loan each time. Their latest loan was funded by a bank, and it's a 30-year loan with a very good interest rate. Surprisingly, each time the lender pre-qualified them for more than the price of the home they ended up buying.

It is also worthwhile to note that there may be different home loans available, depending on where the house is located and your income level. I suggest that you first get married and establish yourself by making reliable on-time payments of your rent and utilities.
