They will see right through your script. Go 1 on 1. They usually train and hire their own agents unless that listing agent is in your firm.

Most buyers that I've worked with like having a covered patio. However, you should buy a home according to your preference and enjoy it.

Tony Grech answered:
any time you refinance there are going to be fees associated with it. There will need to be a new appraisal done, most lenders charge some sort of fees, and don't forget about the title company.

An option to avoid most fees is to do a "no cost" refinance. The way this works is that in exchange for a higher interest rate (usually .25%-.50%) the lender covers the costs for you.

But you may not even need to refinance Lee. If you buy the home and later decide to put more down, most servicing lenders will allow you to re-cast the loan - factoring in the extra down payment and re-calculating your monthly payment based off the new balance.

Hi radjack521, we are experiencing the same thing with another property on Trulia, being listed for $800 in one ad by one individual that when the name is clicked on, the link goes to a blank page. When you click on what is obviously the correct link (rental amount shows to be $2200) where the ad has an actual realtor's contact info., you realize the scam put out by the other user. We are wondering if the internet crimes division for the Sheriff's Office would be interested in this info? ... more

Hello Gina,

There is sensitive information that sellers request only be made available to licensed realtors and which helps avoid many problems in the future should a qualified buyer submit an offer with proper representation. Having your own representation by hiring a knowledgeable and resourceful licensed realtor is not only a good practice but is a privilege for the buyer paid by the seller. Take advantage of the free representation! if you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to contact me or my assistant at the information bellow. Thank you!

A CMA is a Comparative Market Analysis. This report is an analysis of what properties are selling per sf in the market and is created by a real estate agent for a seller to provide the best value possible based on appropriate comparable properties to the one in subject. When possible only recently sold coms are used but there are times that the market is so fast passed that active and pending comps need to be used. Also, this report is also the closest thing to an Appraisal, which will prove to be the best source a seller can rely on to appropriately price his home for sale in the market and avoid appraisal issues when under contract with a qualified buyer. Hope this helps. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or my assistant at the information bellow!

Realtor cannot give legal advise. Would suggest speaking with the builder. This market is very strong and they will be able to sell the home to someone else. You might not be able to keep your deposit or any money given for upgrades, but most will understand your situation. You may need to present an offer letter from your employer to verify the situation.

Robert Adams answered:
If you are having a hard time coming up with the earnest money you may want to focus on increasing your income, or lowering your expenses, or both. Owning a home comes with additional expenses such as repairs that you will need money for. One of the benefits of renting is that it is the landlord's responsibility to handle the repairs.

Other concerns should be, do you have money for the inspection if you buy? What about the appraisal?

you will also have to see what programs you qualify for in regard to down payment assistance or grants because you will most likely have to put something down unless you are going VA etc.

You will also have closing costs. Your agent may be able to write the contracts in such a way that the seller will pay for your closing costs.

Either way there are several costs involved other than the EMD, so it might be wise to speak to a lender and create a financial plan that will set you up to buy in the future when you are ready.

Best of luck!

Best Regards,
