Why were you not given a copy of the listing agreement? Don't know. That is something you should be asking your agent. If you did not do an electronic signature it shouldn't take anyone more than 24 hours to scan and email a copy

Also, it should not have been blank. It should clearly state listing dates, commissions, etc. Call up the agent and ask for a copy of your listing agreement.

Good luck with your sale and I hope your experience gets better.

Hello Dickbfield, if you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Are you looking to pay all cash or need financing? Homes that are in need of repair do not qualify for most traditional financing and you may consider 203k loans. A Streamline 203k loan can be utilized to repair from 5k up to 35k and the standard 203k loan from 5k up to maximum loan limit per county and can also include up to 6 months of payments while the work is being completed.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You will also need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

The purchase in Stockton start from 40-50k for 1bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from 35k for 3bd 1ba home which is as low as $200 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score.

If you have credit issues, your credit scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Rick McGrath answered:
Prices are on the "Up Tick" as you put it. Due to still very low interest rates and low inventory. Tens of thousands of homes were lost to the housing crash. Many of these who once owned a home, are now ready to reenter the market to own again. Prices should continue to move upward at a modest pace for awhile longer before the market balances out. ... more

Randy Martin answered:
Please click on the attached links regarding Homesteads.

The short answer is most likely no there is no protection from a lien. As answered previously a sale or refinance of the home would require those liens to be released by payment of the lien. There does appear to be some protection against judgments but this is not a straighforward answer. It would be my advice that you contact an an attorney that specializes in Real Estate to get the best solution.

Best of Luck,

Short answer: Absolutely

Long Answer: It may cost you more than it’s worth. As mentioned below, you need to factor in the following:

• Selling costs, commissions, etc.
• Taxes on the proceeds, it any (at the short-term rate)
• Any prepayment penalty on your loan.
• Current market trends.

It all depends on the purchase price for a home. I do have a price list from a title company that gives break downs. Please let me know if you need help with selling or buying.

Richard Reid answered:
1. Do not sign anything with a blank.
2. Consult an attorney for clarification and comfort. Before the process is over, you will probably need them more than once.
3. In most short sales I have seen, you should not be on the hook for the balance. Both scenarios are possible, and it will vary by bank, region, and loan officer.

If you are going to be obligated to pay, be sure you are comfortable with the size and structure of the note. The balance could be substantial, and you need to understand the entire transaction before you agree to it.

Note: I am not an attorney, nor am I familiar with your loan or California state law.

Talk with you lender immediately. Let them know your situation. Many lenders are willing to pre-approve a short sale, whereby you can sell your home for less than you own on it, with the bank absorbing the loss. Be sure to find a Realtor that has ShortSale experience.
Best of luck to you,

Gail Hovey answered:
Hello Wayne,

The best advice in your circumstances is to consult with a real estate attorney and a CPA. There is nothing "typical" about this market, we are in a market dominated by distressed properties. Is BofA attempting to work out terms on 3 missed payments and qualify you for a loan modification? If you are delinquent in the mortgage does BofA require 3 months of on time payments before they will consider a loan modification? Settlement/work out terms on already delinquent payments does not necessarily modify a loan - it may just be a matter of the lender trying to work with you to bring the mortgage current so that you can qualify for a loan modification. If you are not delinquent on the 3 payments, is that the guidelines under which BofA operates and can BofA send you their guidelines on loan modifications? Given the proven fact that most loan modifications go back into default in a relatively short amount of time, the circumstances of why a loan mod is needed and how one got to the point is most definitely relative and a critical piece of the puzzle which goes back to the bigger question of once the loan is modified, how will you be able to keep it current going forward.

Good luck to you,

Gail Hovey

Gail Hovey answered:
Hello Derek,

All of the answers posted cover some of the possibilities and it is very difficult to address your question without knowing where your home is being advertised. One thing I have not seen addressed yet is are you the actual homeowner or are you a tenant that has been paying the rent in good faith? I have several assignments from a bank owned asset account where the home is occupied by a tenant who has been paying the rent. However, the landlord (home owner) has not been paying the mortgage and the home has been lost to foreclosure. If the home has been lost to foreclosure, there are a number of places where that information can be found and a matter of time before it is assigned to a Realtor to vacate and sell.

If you are comfortable sharing any further details, it would be my pleasure to try and address this issue more completely.

David McKeever answered:
I feel, if you like the neighborhood you live in are and are comfortable with your mortgage then stay put! Your personal residence is not an investment, it is first and foremost your home. Yes, it would be great to sell and have 60K+ in the bank, but trying to time the market and predict an exact bottom or a better time to purchase can be difficult. You also have to take into consideration the tax benefit you have by having a mortgage. If you were to rent, that interest deduction would not be there.
Another note:
The local market overall as become busier, homes are selling quick. I feel prices may not go down much further. But, they may not go up anytime soon either. Prices should remain flat for sometime.
My opinion..
