Upset,
Do you have an agent representing you? Was it this agent that changed up the terms? I agree, starting with the managing broker might be a start, but have an attorney on speed dial and make no promises you don't intend to keep until you talk to the attorney.
Buyer's often have many contingencies, but sellers rarely have any way out. You could refuse to do more than the bare minimum in terms of cooperation, but if the lawyer or broker don't see a way out you may be stuck.

Karen,

Diane is correct, Trulia does not accept FSBO listings. There are sites that do, but if you posted here and on every other site that allows you to, you won't get the level of exposure that listing with a great local agent and appearing on your local MLS will get you.

A great agent is worth more than their commission, but a bad one or none at all can cost you way more than just a commission. Consider discussing your options with someone worth working with and then do whatever you feel is in your best interest. Best of luck however you proceed.

Hi Rex,

This is a question you need to sit down and discuss with your agent. Have him/her bring a detailed list of the competition. Request to tour the homes that are most similarly priced to yours and do a comparison with unbiased eyes.

Do you have great photos? On-line presence? Staging? All of these will contribute to more showings for your home.

Hardmoneymi answered:
You may want to have your kids quit claim you onto the title with them if you lend them the money that way you have some control over the property, just in case. Also require that they give you a copy of the prior months receipt showing you that they made the payment and it continues to stay current. You can file a lien of interest on the house to secure your investment or record a mortgage and have them also sign a Note for the payments and interest, if you're charging interest (not to exceed 11%).

Be careful because unless you're a licensed lender you're not suppose to lend on residential property, even if you're related. You may want to take this to a real estate attorney and have them put this together for you, $30,000 is a lot of money to put at risk, kids or no kids. I've seen more family nightmares start with lending money and when it comes to a house it can get worse.

What were you thinking about asking for the monthly rent and the sale price? I can run a market analysis for you to see what similar homes in the area are renting and selling in the last 6 months.

If you need assistance I would be happy to help, contact me anytime.

Rose Tibbles answered:
Hello,

I agree, try the short sale first. Be sure to have an agent that has experience, ask questions on their back ground with short sales. How many have they completed, or are they working with a law firm that will handle your file.

Good luck,

Rose Tibbles

Chris Ervin answered:
Julie,
Unless your Realtor builds it into the purchase agreement, your prorations will be based on the rate as currently billed. However, If you have escrows set up (your taxes and insurance are included in your payment), your lender may base the escrows on the homesteaded rate. In some cases, the payment would be significantly affected. If you feel that even the homestead rate is too high, you may go before the "tax tribunal" which allows homeowners to dispute their taxable values. You would need to check with the municipality for the appropriate date. If you are asking for concessions and the seller waives the prorations, please consult your lender as some will deduct the portion of taxes waived from the total concessions.
Thanks,
Chris Ervin

Reozom.com Real Estate answered:
We offer flat fee MLS starting at only $49.95.

I think you’ll find that who markets your property isn’t as important as how you market it and at what price. I can almost guarantee you that sellers that do list on the MLS with us for a flat fee are getting as many showings as if they were listed with a full service Realtor, assuming of course their asking price is right.

As you probably already know; not having to pay for the listing commission allows you t greater flexibility when it pertains to the asking price. Also if you need help with any other aspect of the home selling process, we have resources that can help, everything from title insurance, to local pre-screened real attorneys and appraisers. You can check us out online at www.reozom.com.

Scott Sowles answered:
Wanderer,

Buyers always seem to look for a formula to use when making an offer on a property. The best formula is to have a buyers agent assist you in determining the value of the property and guiding you through the negotiations on the purchase.

That being said I often equate our current real estate market to the WalMart commercials where they talk about "Rolling Back Prices". The same thing has happened in the real estate business. In my market the prices have "rolled back" to 1996-1998 levels. Making an offer based on that criteria alone would not be a wise method for a whole list of reasons too numerous to mention here. Contact me directly if you'd like additional information.
