Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor, you need to contact a few local realtors and have them visit your home and provide a written analysis of what your home will sell for with and without the renovations.

You can sell your home without doing any work BUT you will need to price your home much lower and the type of buyers who will show interest are investors. They will pay cash because they will spend money renovating, then reselling your home after the renovations. Expect to sell your home for a really low price.

If you spend money doing repairs and renovations, you will sell your home for a higher price BUT how high depends on what your local market is doing. This is why you need to contact some local realtors.

Rob, I know you have already been bombarded with offers of service to list your home and I have no doubt that there are many professionals representing our industry well in the listing services they offer.

My philosophy is simple and my purpose is clear. I am a Realtor because I love the sense of security my expertise brings to my clients and I thoroughly enjoy the achievement in closing a deal to their satisfaction. My dynamic understanding of the local market and valuation, aggressive marketing strategy, and my pro-active, solution-driven approach to negotiation are the traits that enable me to exceed the expectations of my clients. If you are not working with another agent, I invite you check out my profile and then give me a call.

No, you can not sleep peacefully through the night.
Yes, you can be turned down a few days before closing.

No, nothing is guaranteed, regardless of how positive the loan officer sounds.

Of course you should be asking these questions of your loan officer, not strangers on the internet.

Yes, we know you submitted all the stuff, that however has no bearing on when the underwriters will LOOK at your stuff. Stuff like too many non-reimbursed business expenses has sent many deals to the bottom. Sure, it was plain and easy to see from day one, but the issue is 'when' they choose to look at your stuff. Usually, the bank/lender is the LAST one to spend money and resource on your behalf. That is why lender failure most often occurs AFTER the buyer has spent their money on inspections, appraisals, surveys and consultations and just days before closing.

This is why it is essential to use the lender recommended by your REALTOR. In that relationship there exists ACCOUNTABILITY. A lender who drops the ball, at the end, finds themselves OFF the list. That is real accountability.

Always have a Plan B.

Amy Arey answered:
Having a featured listing (not just posted) on Trulia is a great "start" to getting more exposure to your property. However, the very first step you want to take is making sure that it is relayed to the public in a way that will showcase your home in the best possible light (does it look, feel, SMELL great? How is the curb-appeal?). Make sure your photos are high-quality and professional. Even if you have stellar marketing but your photos are not superb, guess what happens? (That's're ultimately getting a TON of exposure for your home and making thousands HATE IT-not love it ((obviously, not our goal)).

Take a look at my blog post below to see what you can do to make sure you're getting the most positive exposure for your home:

Susie Kay answered:
Many sellers will take cash offers over financed offers. However, having said that, typically buyers with cash offers do not give full price (of course this is not always the case). So seller may not accept the cash offer and instead choose to work with a financed offer. Also as others have said below, the terms of the contract also determine whether your offer will be accepted. So is cash still king? Not always! I've seen some cash buyers offering homes a lot less than market value and their cash is not king in this matter.

It's the sellers market right now and there are plenty of cash buyers for lower priced homes so unless if you are looking at high priced homes chances are you won't be the only cash buyer.

Good luck and let me know if you still need help finding a property!

Diane Briggs answered:
Hello, I'd be happy to assist with your purchase in the Rockwall area. I can help you analyze your investment decisions as well by providing the following data:

- homes for sale in your price range and preferred criteria
- sales history of comparable homes
- rental history, pricing and number of days on market for comparable homes
- active rentals with pricing and number of days on market

These are just a few of the many things I can do to help out, and I always provide highly analytical insights to each and every transaction.

I'd recommend you first talk to a few realtors, and selecting one that you feel can best meet your objectives. Not all agents' working styles are the same, so finding a good working relationship is key. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss further, thanks!
