Ideally, I'd love to live in SF, but don't want to deal with the commute every day. Is there anywhere nearby Sunnyvale that is fun, safe, not too family-ish, with easy access to Sunnyvale…

Hello Seller2017, yes they are common with the higher end sales priced homes and are included with the negotiations of the listing agreement so ask your agent whom lists your home who they use.

Is your home listed or are you intending on a FSBO, for sale by owner?

This is what keeps a quality neighborhood desirable. If buyers with lower incomes wanted to buy in this neighborhood, the value of neighboring homes would be reduced and residents would have paid more for their homes than it's worth. If you want to live in this area, buy a condo which is cheaper. Residents in the New York City area do this everyday. ... more

In the strictest sense of the law, absolutely not. All offers are to be presented fairly and it is up to the seller to decide. If there are agents were it would tip the scales do you really want to work with that agent? They are doing something unethical and most likely in violation of the law. ... more

Recording a lien release bond is a way to remove the cloud on title from the mechanics lien. Your title company will then be able to issue title insurance. You can read about it here: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=CIV§ionNum=8424.
Hope this helps!

I am selling my house in Louisiana and have asked the title company to send me a HUD so that I can see the breakdown of closing costs that I am paying for. Title company says it is against the law for them to show me the HUD with the buyers information on it. The Seller Settlement Statement they have sent me has all fees as one lump sum. Doesn't title company have a responsibility to show me the breakdown even though I agreed to pay up to $5,000.00 for closing costs? ... more

Yes but you will need to put down at least 30% and the interest rate will be at least 7%. Most of the time it is 50% down and 10% interest.

From the article references: "The issue is not whether the lender can give the inquirer a copy, but, rather, should the lender provide the copy of the credit report. Section 607(c) of the FCRA states that disclosure of consumer reports by a user (in this case, the lender) is allowed. From a practical standpoint, there may be more good reasons to not provide the credit report directly to the consumer than the reasons to do it."
Hope this helps!

Rich Reed answered:
The "market," made up of willing sellers and buyers, determines the final price, and that is the only "right" dollar value. Real estate agents don't determine listing or selling prices, they only advise their principals about pricing and pricing strategy. Some sellers prefer to price low and get multiple offers, some prefer to price high and expect lower offers. The best pricing strategy varies with the local area and changes over time. Comps for residential appraisals and CMA's are usually based on recent sales, not current listing prices. It is unlikely the agent you are referring to is having any material effect on market prices, but rather the forces of supply and demand are affecting your market.
To answer your question there is no practical way for the average person to stop this from happening.
If you were a savvy investor and you thought prices were too low, you would be buying up the inventory and reselling it for a profit.
When you are ready to sell your own property, seek the advice of a local professional, and list at whatever price you choose. Satisfy yourself that the price you ultimately sell for is the right price.
Best of luck!

Hello shahmanish2003, stick with your current fixed rate at 3.5%. If you want to compare all options you have available there are options but may not pencil out.

It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify and go over your options. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...
