I was on the same boat with an ineffectial realtor. Every single property I saw I found them on Trulia...including the one I ultimately put in the offer that was too low for the seller. I told the realtor that I wanted the property and would do whatever it took to negotiate, but she gave no valuable tips or advise and ultimately lost the property. Now I want to use another realtor and really don't want her to benefit from me at all. Even if I found the property, the procuring realtor has a chance to collect the commission? Doesn't seem fair. ... more

Hi,
Perhaps a first hand way to find out would be to do the commute a few times to get a feel for it.

Kind regards,

Meena Gujral answered:
We usually advice our sellers to have all inspections done and all disclosures completed before putting the house on the market. If buyers have seen all the reports and disclosures prior to submitting an offer, they can write a non-contingent offer.

Did you give a non contingent offer to the sellers? Did they give you all the disclosures and inspection reports before you placed the offer? If the house has major defects that you only found out from the disclosures that you received after the offer was accepted, you may be able to back out depending on how the contract was written.

Your agent should be able to help you with that.

I would suggest that you discuss this with your realtor. Here in Texas, seller can accept as many back up offers and he wants anytime before the home is closed and funded. Your earnest money will be released as long as it is in the terms of the contract. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
Ravi,

I would suggest that you discuss this with your realtor. That's what he/she is paid for. However, having said that, seller can get his own home inspection. He is not to ask you to pay for it unless it has been agreed upon. Yes, seller can take as many back up offers as he can but you are still the first buyer. ... more

I agree with Richard completely. I have yet to see a house that was cheap enough or special enough to justify the risk and aggravation involved with buying a foreclosure or short sale. There are plenty of dumpy homes that you can buy directly from the seller, not the bank. I suggest you buy one of those instead.

Just as long as you are not underwater on your rental, there are no rental requirements when purchasing a primary.

Hi,

Consumers have Many reasons to buy. Many of them are not investment related, and sometimes they will be there long-term and see several market trends go by while they own the house.

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
Yes the realtor was correct about needed a pre approval to write an offer but if you have one and they won't write the offer . why not? Because you didn't use their lender? Then get another realtor to work with. Tell that agent why you are working with another agent to write your offer before they find out in the middle of the escrow and cause problems for you. The agent should have communicated more with you on why your prequal will not work so your not asking here. We need more information from you. ... more

Traffic and it's expensive. Both areas are a great place to live. I grew up in Danville and today it is still a great town. I miss living there but don't miss the traffic.
