If you're going to need a loan... your option is to use some of those substantial savings and money to improve your credit, so that lenders would be willing to take on the risk of loaning to you. ... more

This comes up a lot. Great question! Sometimes, things happen in life. Realtors work with many different clients and try their best every day to provide excellent customer service, but they are people too and often face personal events that prevent them from doing their job (temporarily of course). There is no excuse that you were not taken care of for 3 weeks time,however did you let him/her know that this upset you? Common knowledge says that this Realtor should have known that you were upset, but if they forgot about you and their friend never reached out to you that should at least be expressed to him/her so that they don't entrust in that person to assist another client down the road. I would call them and let them know that it really upset you and see what they have to say. You will know if it is time to move on or not and this way, you will feel better knowing you tried your best to resolve an issue with someone who truly helped you in the past and can gain clarification as to what went on before. Best of luck! ... more

Property swapping (aka equity exchange) isn't new, and it happens all of the time. More often than not, swappers work with investors or they'll use one of the various online exchange sites to market/sell their properties. A 2-way exchange happens when seller A agrees to buy seller B's property only if seller B also agrees to buy seller A's property. However, sometimes seller B might not want to buy seller A's property, and in those cases seller A would have to participate in a multi-way exchange.

Anyway, the more flexible that you are on your price/terms, the more likely you'll be able to do a swap.

Please feel free to contact me for more details.

If the contract is still in effect, you really can't do anything until it expires--press your attorney for straight answers, after all that's what you are paying him for and you are the client--without knowing exactly what the contract states, your question can't really be answered with accuracy--again press your attorney and review the contract yourself as well--then make a determination. ... more
