Is this about Benghazi? Even mentioning impeachment over that is ridiculous. I think Obama is a humanitarian and perhaps not the most business focused president he is still a good one and was voted in. Benghazi was a tragedy and an oversight by someone beneath him, and it should have been handled better when the request for more security was made. That is where the issue lies, not in his verbiage. I don't believe a cover up exists. Is this I'm on? lol ... more

Celine F answered:
Hi Laura,

Depending on the complexity of the deal, your buyer may or may not be able to close in time for the tax credit. I have seen short sales that take as along as a year and that lenders are overwhelmed with short sales and foreclosures to process.

Considering your buyer may have an opportunity to purchase the home at a discounted price that it was not affordable before, your buyer may still end up getting a good deal without the tax credit.

However, with short sales, the time frame window is wide open to anything that could go wrong along the process. Maybe you can show your buyer other homes while he/ she can qualify for financing now.

Wow, thanks for all the answers, fellow Realtors.

It is amazing to me that many of you chose this profession due to a bad experience with a previous agent. It's fairly ironic, considering that the crux of my question addressed the perception of many consumers that real estate agents are sharks and lazy, greedy 'used car salesmen'.

And then. Here you are saying that you chose to become a licensed Realtor BECAUSE you dealt with an incompetent self-serving agent!

Thank you again for sharing your stories. I hope you won't mind - I can't choose a "Best Answer" since the answers are so personal and unique to each person.

I would love for consumers to chime in on their bad AND good experiences with Realtors.
