Could I negotiate a better rate if I am using the same agent to sell current home and buy a new one? What are the common rates on NE Ohio?

I would seek legal advice. That does not make it void, but you may have issues if a party is trying to "back out" because of that type of typo.

I have unfortunately never heard of them. I would recommend Title One Agency in Green. Lowest rates and great service.

You will want to look on Craigslist or have a Realtor check into this for you. There are only a small number of those in the MLS, but I could check for you.

He may be accurate that the property could very well be gone by the time you see it, so it is always good to have a preapproval letter with you and look at a home within a day or two of it being listed. There is a shortage of inventory and homes that are priced right are sold very quickly. ... more

Sales are up and listings are down in most areas...including Streetsboro. In general, it is becoming a much better market for sellers. However, there are wide variations between single family homes and condos, and the market varies widely by price range.

Most people are not interested in general market statistics. They want answers about their property. To find that out, I'd suggest contacting an agent in your area and he/she will be able to answer this question and many others for you.

Lucia Mack Keller Williams gcsw 216-534-0969 All good points! The first thing that comes to my mind is that we know the market and we educate/advise you. This is important because the longer your house sits on the market the less money you will make. So we can position your home where it needs to be to sell, instead of chasing the market. We also have no emotional attachment to your home and sometimes it's hard for you to see the same things that we do. Because I do several transactions a month I can see the potential problems we are going to have and I can see it from a buyers eyes. These are sometimes small adjustments that we can make upfront to limit buyers objections. This means to things, a quicker sale and more money....less things for them to ding you on good luck! And of course let me know if you need anything else. It's a great time to sell! Lucia Mack ... more

Does the deed also say " and other considerations " ? If so, that $199,990 would be the "other consideration".

You might find this article from interesting reading.

IMHO there are two key aspects of the costs that my clients pay:
1. They should be directly related to the transaction - not just "padding".
2. They should be disclosed as soon as they are known to be applicable. Usually that means that when we are working on a transaction, we request an "estimate of funds required to close" for buyers and an "estimate of seller's net proceeds" for sellers so we can evaluate as early in the transaction as possible any potential problems, questions, concerns, etc.

Each state is a bit different but when does the transaction record with the county? That is probably the day you need to be out. The day that paper work is signed does not matter

Dee Nofziger answered:
Unless otherwise stated in writing in your contract, the prospective buyer cannot enter the property without your permission during the time between closing and possession.

Ohio is one of the few states left that does not have "possession at close" as the only option. ... more

I am a Realtor® that lives in Steetsboro/ T answser you question; this all depends on the vendor used. However it should not take any longer to have this performed for VA than a Non-VA. I have attached an link below to assist you with your questions. Most apprasiers get their reports turned arround with in few days. They know that the mortgage broker is depending on it to finalize mortgage amount it is willing to lend.

Pat & Steve Pribisko answered:
You are in my market area. Across Northeast OH area, from my observation & those with whom I speak, the main issue is that when you are having plenty of showings & no offers, the price is too high. I have experienced it recently with 2 of the listing I have. You said that your agent works hard. So, have a frank discussion with him or her about lowering your list price. Really listen to what he or she suggests as the new list price. It has to be a significant reduction in list price to reach Buyers who are in your price range. And, it has to be a significant reduction for your Realtor to be able to market your home as if it is a new home on the market. ... more
