No... the listing agent cannot refuse to present your written cash offer to the seller for 'any' reason at all.

You should take this up with your buyer's agent, who will run interference for you, and make certain that the offer is presented.

Good luck.

The Mortgage is tied to the property - if it is not paid they can file foreclosure...

Florida is a lien in place state, which means when a note/mortgage is taken out on property there is a lien filed; you hold the deed but they hold the lien against it ... When the mortgage is satisfied either by paying it off or refinancing with another lender the lien is removed via a "satisfaction of mortgage" document,however if you're refinancing the note with another lender they in turn a place a new lien on your property.

quit claim is a process of passing ownership of deed/property but not of removing liens/obligations held against that property.

Masonry is construction built by using mortar to bind together units of stone, concrete block, brick, or glass block ( I would not refer to ceramic tile work as masonry). It can be either structural or non-structural, meaning it can either resist the loads placed on buildings by gravity, wind or seismic loads, or it can be used as a cladding or screen with other materials carrying strucural loads. Both concrete block construction and brick construction are correctly referred to as "masonry," referring to the fact that both are built by "masons." Masonry is generally used for walls, not floors or roofs, but roofs can be built with masonry, using the dome configuration, probably as shown in popular photos of white domes in the Greek islands. Concrete block is made from concrete that is poured in molds and cured (not dried) to a solid material. Brick is made from clay that is molded and baked. Stucco is a cementitious material that is made from cement, sand and water, and is troweled or shot with a compressed air "gun" ("gunite") onto the underlying masonry. Bottom line: Concrete block and stucco houses are masonry, but not all masonry is concrete block and stucco. Pro tip: getting answers to techncal construction questions on a site such as this where answers are given by those whose qualifications are "homeowner" does not seem to lead to the flow of accurate informatioin. ... more

asgj1978 answered:
There is no 'government guarantee' pay out on a reverse mortgage once the house has been defaulted. Also the reverse mortgage payout has nothing to do with a short sale--the default is a result of the owner not paying the HOA fees---a reverse mortgage requires all fees, taxes, insurance and maintenance be kept up. However, a short sale also is whatever amount the default 'owner' agrees to take to sell the house, rarely do you get to negotiate that price--they feel that they are already taking a loss. ... more

2006 was at the peak of the real estate boom here in Florida. The bubble burst and prices dropped, sometimes substantially, for several years. Although the prices have recovered in some parts of Florida since the "bust," the recovery has been slower in some parts of the state.

Try contacting a local real estate agent in the area you are interested in for more specific information about that particular condo community.

Hi Julius,

Your question lacks the full information to answer this question with 100% accuracy.
Type of contract, terms on contract, addendum's, type of financing, disclosures.
The list goes on

I am assuming you do not have a Realtor helping you with this transaction. If you dont,
I strongly suggest you hire an attorney at this point. Your deposit could be at jeopardy.
You could be heading for a lawsuit if you do not perform as per contract.

Contact a couple of local lenders in the area where you're looking to purchase. What you qualify for depends on a lot of factors, not just credit scores.
