Your site reads "1 Bathroom" but in actuality, THERE ARE 2 BATHROOMS. This will make a huge difference in the interest and ultimate sale of this condo. IT MUST BE CHANGED ASAP.

If you Google your address, you'll find that's the image that Google has for your house on their Streetview. Google will blur identifying things like faces or license plates if you ask them to but they don't have to do anything more than that because they're well within their rights to take a picture of the outside of your house. Also, that photo has no impact on your home's value.

No appraiser is going to Streetview your house and go "Minus 25% for the unflattering online pic!" That's not how any of this works.

I also have never heard of a house having a "reputation" unless we're talking about illegal activities. So unless your contractor has something like "Cocaine" or "Ladies of the Night" as his/her company name and the associated logo would give someone the idea either of those things can be had at your house, I don't see how this online photo is an issue.

HI Brigite, if you are still in the market to purchase your first home, I would
be happy to help you with a loan prequalification. This way you wouid know up front
how much of a home you can afford and in what price range to look. There is no charge
for the prequal. I am a local lender here in Palm Desert with many years of experience.
Let me know if I can help.

Annette Lawrence answered:
I understand.
This can be confusing.
Never lose focus on the concept you are negotiating.
The one who blinks first loses.

I've bounced 'last offers' as many as six times before closing.
This is were your agents understanding of negotiation and game theory is essential or realizing there is much more to a purchase offer than the price.

If the home has been on the market 4,111 days, 'One and only' may not be real OR you now know why it has been on the market for so long.

Consider, if while you were visiting the home, were other buyers lined up to enter as soon as you left?
'One and only" can mean there are competing offers in the air.

There is no way for you to know with certainty.
Now is the time for you to offer what the home is worth to you and shorten the dance.

Best of success,

Maryanne Jackson answered:
The secondary liens on the property will need to be paid off or negotiated by the first lien.
Your negotiator assigned to you by the bank should be aware of this.
In many cases the second lien will settle for pennies on the dollar. This is pretty common with short sales.
It may cause delays in the sale but, the second liens are normally pleased to settle and get paid something.
Good news is property values are improving-the bank may order a second appraisal that comes in higher than the first, and counter the FIRM offer you currently have and end up getting more cash from your buyer to accommodate the SECONDARY liens that need to be NEGOTIATED.
