You cannot sell your house period. If you list your home with a brokerage, your agent will verify the property information with the county and when he/she discovers you added 200 sq. ft. With no permits, your agent will tell you to rectify the issue first before putting your home on the market. If your agent fails to verify the information with the county, later in the process, your buyer's team (realtor, appraiser, home inspector) will verify the property information with the county and you will end losing a deal.

The only method you have is selling your home "as is" to investors who will pay cash BUT beware - investors will pay much less than what your home is worth.

Best method - pay the penalties & property taxes owed (you owe taxes on the additional square footage) and sell your home for full value.

I would suggest that you pick up the phone and work with a local realtor.

There are many brokerages that offer discounts to veterans and servicemembers and may not charge anything at all to sell their home. If you are a teacher, servicemember, veteran, first responder, or nurse you might qualify for one of these programs in Texas. Your best bet is to do a thorough search for a real estate brokerage that offers a Sell for Free program.

Consider these questions: What is the cost to you? Is it free? Is it flat fee? What services are provided? Are they providing a full service with negotiations? Are there any hidden fees or obligations? Do they provide pro photos, and do open houses?

If you fall into one of those categories to qualify, you can save thousands in fees. I would be happy to point you in the direction of a professional who can answer those questions for you. Don't hesitate to reach out.

Since this is a scam, you don't actually have to know anything about real estate in order to work for Armando Montelongo.

I'm a waiter at a fine-dining restaurant in downtown San Antonio.…

I've had 3 no call no shows in a row. My house is completely showable, I get good feedback but it takes time for me to ready the house perfectly and a common courtesy phone call is all I need. I'm sorry but this is the realtor's job....period. I'm sick to death of it. This is in Florida- never happened in NY. ... more

Presumable that your tenant needs a loan to purchase your home, then your tenant should be consulting a lender on how to proceed. Lenders can give suggestions on how to obtain credit.

That depends on how the contract is written. I would suggest that you read your contract again or hire an attorney to assist you.

Good luck!

You have to do the math. Count in the price you initially paid for your house plus all the repairs and improvements. Then subtract that from the possible selling price; the difference is yours.

I would suggest trying to sell it by owner, advertise heavily all over the place including Facebook. Don't discount the power of the Craigslist; this is where I found and subsequently purchased my condo at, earlier this year.
