Wow. That does not sound right at all. Ask the agent where it states that he can change you an hourly rate, etc. That should not be happening. Followup with his/her broker to ask if this is their policy? I'm assuming it is NOT.

As a point if information, it might help you to get an agent to help you navigate this process. The way most listings are typed up, if you have no agent, the listing agent gets that extra money. It does not stay with the seller or benefits the buyer, so you might as well has someone on your side representing you, since the seller is paying for it either way.
Best of luck to you in your purchase.

Micah Olson answered:
I completely disagree with Annette and Ron. Yes it is inconvenient, and you could have a nice conversation with the buyers, or their agent (or your agent if you have one) explaining that you really need time and space to get packed, and get the home cleaned. BUT what you want is an excited buyer. And they sound excited, maybe a bit nervous as well, but for sure they are committed, and excited. Don't treat them like you do not want them around, or you may end up loosing them. ... more

James Karlovsky answered:
The key with commercial properties is to fully understand what business uses are permitted by the zoning. Target existing retail locations as a starting point. If considering a building that is currently in use as an office, industrial or R&D building, it may not have the zoning and/or parking to support a retail use like a thrift store. I would suggest you get in contact with a local commercial real estate broker with experience in buying/selling (some may only have leasing experience). They should be able to help you target buildings that could work for your business use. Note, if this is a new business and if you need a loan to purchase the building, it would also be wise to start discussions with a lender regarding your financing options. Ask them about SBA loans available to you, which may require only 10% down. ... more

Michael Maloney answered:
If the landlord specified stuff in the contract then I guess you're caught in a tough place. But do speak to her about why she's keeping her things in storage in your room. I would suppose that since its food storage she has to go in fairly often to take them out right? That's quite a big loss of privacy and I would get her to do something about it. ... more

Recently, I was informed that if I do not own the mineral rights on my land that people can drill and claim the profit of oil in my backyard. I am pretty sure I have oil in my backyard but I am afraid to drill for it, for fear that someone can claim it out from under me. Does anyone know how to get the mineral rights for your own land?

Have you tried looking up the address to this home on google earth? Maybe you can check out the street and see if it looks ok. Also, I agree you should call up a real estate agent to see if the home is really up for sale. ... more

If the home is foreclosed then the bank is on title not the owners since foreclosure is the process of removing the sellers from off the title and reclaim the home. Where as per-foreclosure the sellers' name is still on title. I home helps.

Ron Krauch answered:
Worn out carpet is a red flag in any home purchase. If the carpet needs to be replaced, go ahead and replace it. So long as carpet is in good condition and a generally acceptable color, buyers barely mention it in initial tours.

As others have said... the ROI on carpet is an iffy proposition. Replace it if you like and enjoy your home NOW!

PS... Most repair, paint, replace questions I get from sellers gets the same answer, "I would".
