This is a good question. I would try to get the opinion from a realtor in your local area because they will definitely know. UpNest.com allows you to search for realtors that fit your needs. You can search for services and compare rates! ... more

I think you will find InBedrock.com to be very helpful in analyzing your prospective home purchase. It will help you understand in a very simple, easy-to-use way ALL the costs of homeownership, especially as it pertains to viewing home as an investment. It will help you figure "how much home can I afford?" and "what will bank lend me?" given my income, assets, down payment, other debts, etc. InBedrock.com is great for 1st-time homebuyers who need assistance and basic understanding of all financial aspects of buying AND then owning a home (i.e. Real estate taxes, HO Insurance, Title closing fees, Utilities, improvements). It will help you decide if house you have heart set on is a better investment than Renting. So get real estate smart with InBedrock.com ... more

It is very common to make the sale of your property contingent upon the purchase of your new one and closing the escrows concurrently. It happens every day. No worries and best of luck.

Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group answered:
If I have multiple offers on a property and the seller is reviewing or countering offers, I will put the listing on Hold status. It is usually only for a max of a few days until an offer is selected. You must be referring to a specific property or a specific agent. I don't think that the majority of agents are abusing the Hold Status in the MLS.

Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group answered:
You don't have to do anything that you don't want to do. But on the other hand... I am sure that you want to sell for TOP DOLLAR, correct? In that case... you should do what you think would help you to get what you want or need from the sale of your property. Ask yourself if you were a buyer, would you like to see cracks in the stucco? Would an explanation that " The surrounding homes on this hill pretty much have these cracks" satisfy your concern? I don't think so. Get it done and get your place sold.
Best of luck,

Sean Seckar answered:
I think it is a great time to put your property up as interest rates are still low and there isn’t a huge inventory yet. Also remember that school just ended and many families are going on vacations so it can appear there are very few buyers but there are agents out there with clients just waiting for the perfect home to come on the market.

If you would like to further discuss your options, or receive a no obligation market analysis, feel free to contact me at anytime.

Karen Peyton answered:
Corner lots are definitely larger, but whether or not they are more in demand is questionable. Having a stop sign several feet from your driveway, or on the side of your house, would (in my opinion) negate any value of a larger lot and actually make it less desirable. ... more

Hello Ty,
Inventory IS down all over and the buyers are out in number looking at what is available. IF you price your home competitively for this market, you should sell fairly quickly. ... more

Dear Travers,
Traditionally the Spring and Summer are busy for home sales because families have the time to look, and children are out of school, however, I have sold property in the Winter and one was right after New Year!
In your area the Fall and Winter are nice times of year, so if that is when you want to sell, I say....go for it!

Alex Meguerditchian answered:
Marlon the best bet for you is to interview a handful of local experts and see what each individual Realtor is charging. We are all independent contractors and charge different commissions, there is no set price in commission...my advice to you is call agents and interview until you find what's right for you! Best of luck!

Best regards,

William Boyd answered:
I would like to see these things for myself though, maybe I could make a new friend. If it was my listing, I would always try to show it on a bright sunny day and not after dark.

I have had experiences with the spirit world twice in my life and they were very positive. So, I guess it is not the situation that causes stress, it is how you perceive it ... more

Alex Meguerditchian answered:
In this "sellers" market I think you will be ok with this situation. Honestly try to make it look "sellable" as much as possible and for as cheap as possible, something so the buyers can imagine themselves in the home. You will definitely have leverage if you’re going to list your home, extremely low inventory and tons of well qualified buyers...have fun picking and choosing which offer will suit you best! www.AlexLAEstates.com

Best Regards,

Tony Lewis answered:
This is determined by all parties to the transaction and negotiable. The first question that I personally would consider regarding the fees is who is benefiting? If it is a benefit to all parties share the fees. If one party benefits solely well that would be a consideration. There is a standard of the industry and a Realtor will guide you through the process if you have a resource. Call me if you have specific questions.

When did you purchase your condo? If you can afford it I would recommend leasing it out. Try contacting production or major company in town to see if they need a property for executive housing. ... more
