As a former realtor, state licensing laws are that you cannot work /present yourself as a realtor until your license is with a registered broker. Without a broker, you can communicate with the listing agent as a mother - not a buyer's agent. Brokers are 100% responsible for their agent's actions. At the moment, nobody is responsible for you if you make mistakes. ... more

The agreement (Buyer/Broker) will protect you both and settle any questions once and for all about who's client she is. No other agent can claim she was working with them if you have that agreement in place, so perhaps it would be a good idea to take care of it. Once you have that, she can feel more free to look.

I don't think the contract would be valid, unless your license is active though. It would be safest if you activate your license first.

Seller financing can be a real advantage in attracting buyers who may not otherwise qualify for various reasons. When listing your home, you want to ensure that your agent places "Seller Carryback" in the comments section as it will help when agents who are searching for "Seller Carryback" listings. You would want to provide your agent the loan details on a Seller Financing Addendum as part of your Residential Resale Purchase Contract packet when you have located a Buyer.

Often, a local title company can assist you with the "how to" steps on doing this at a reasonable fee. They have in-house companies who will accept and track payments for you. These companies will also confirm that your Buyer is paying the HOA fees in a timely manner. In summary, should the Buyer default on a payment(s), the property would most likely revert back to you. Also, many times the interest rates of third party financing channels that I've seen range anywhere from prime rate plus one percent upwards to ten percent. In summary, your agent is the best source to contact on this creative approach. Hope this helps. Cindy Chapman, Sedona, Coldwell Banker First Affiliate

Dear Russell,
When listing a home, I always advise my Seller's to remove any excessive clutter as it may detract from the home and make the home appear smaller than it is. Usually a Seller will remove packed items and place them in the garage. I think it's best when the home appears to be clean and well cared for. This can be a challenge when the home is vacant. Usually your agent can assist you in suggesting which items to remove. Always reach out to your agent as they have additional resources that they can utilize
in helping you reach your objective. Hope this helps. Thank you, Cindy

Hi Zonule,
The majority of the homes in Sedona do not have their own pools as you might find in other parts of the United States such as Florida. If you're looking for a home with a pool, chances are we would find a home for you with a pool. In West Sedona, there's a public pool that was renovated in the last couple of years. In the Village of Oak Creek, many locals join the Hilton Spa's fitness facility which has a lovely pool and awesome views. Feel free to contact me for additional information. Take care, Cindy ... more

Is it a golfing community that is a condo? If so then there is probably a membership fee. Also, in the last year or so property values in Arizona have taken a dive.

just get it on at a discount to paying too much for a timeshare.

Did the sales meeting, when you did annual on cost and maintenance was like $350 a month spreading out the cost of the "points" for 10 years.

And the maintenance fees always go up...

Whether it is petroglyphs, canyons. Native Americans, in Sedona those who aspire to the practices of clarity of thought have the opportunity to touch time. Just relax and wait a while to feel the spirit of the place and touch time.....the sediment in the canyon wall, the stratification and imagine to go there when it was now! ... more

Matt White answered:

Mobiles (like the one you're referring to) are extremely hard to finance. Usually it goes to manual underwriting, and there are a ton of hoops to jump through. Everything will have to check out in the inspection, and you may even get bounced around from lender to lender (within the network). It's best to call someone who can give you an honest opinion before you start the process. It would be bad to find out later that you've wasted valuable time. ... more

Hi Keith,

Again, if you're looking to sell your timeshare, the best way to do this is on the marketplace.
Feel free to send me an email, and I'll give you some information as to where.
