Here's the good news, if that house sells quickly it could go for well over list price if your value is remotely correct. If there are multiple offers on that house, only one buyer will win. The others will be looking for another home as similar as possible. Your's will go next.
I had this happen a few years ago, only the other house was listed with someone else. We had been on for a little while at the upper end of the value range as my client was in no hurry to sell. As they were approaching a deadline where they were more motivated, the mirror image floor plan came on the market a few doors down for a significant amount less. My clients were very upset.
In the end, that home had multiple offers. The winning bidder and the seller were happy, but the other bidders came calling to us. We got near list price due to the activity they created and my sellers did fine in the end.
I hope this happens for you too.

In my opinion that would be wonderful for the other Seller. If the Realtor has customers that are not interested in his/her home, then the Realtor could take the customer to the other home. I think it would generate more activity. I think it's a win-win situation. ... more

So do you mean technicians or architectural?

I needed to visit TAFE to become only a *mild duty technician. Universities do not provide classes on truly being a *oil monkey. They're somewhat classier than that lol no, TAFE is more accessibility level instruction and Colleges are more connected with diplomas and levels, plus They're more difficult to enter.

You must research for longer and harder for the majority of-the classes.

Research the universities California - used to do a while to it ago and they might offer some thing to you on the architectural side but it is definitely not entry level.

You should be-a little more particular in what you're looking for since the area is fairly comprehensive. There is a-difference between a mechanic and an auto engineer.

The IRS actually puts the burden of this withholding on the buyer, not the seller. However, in Texas, the seller (or person authorized to act on behalf of seller) must sign an affidavit stating the seller is not a foreign person as IRS defines it. This falls under the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA). Haven't dealt with this in a while, but you can Google it and get all the info you will want to know about it.

Best of luck.

Hello Josh,
In real estate everything is negotiable, so you could negotiate with the new owner to pay all the transfer fees involved. (Those will vary depending on the location of the property & may include city, county, state transfer taxes & recording fees).
I would also speak to a CPA (accountant) to cover all the bases. (Have you considered gifting it to a charity? Then you would probably get a tax benefit).
Have a great day!

Hi Nancy, IJust as when you take a listing , you can not guarantee a successful sale, neither can I. The same as with any property, one house might be more desireable, and also might have an agent that does alot to promote that the home is on the contest. ... more

Show them how they can use their currency to their advantage, since the dollar is really low right now. We show them the uniquenes of our city, how it is so rich in culture.

A big help is being able to show how others like themselves have already made a home here...this really gives them a piece of mind...for then they can better see how they relate to the new place they will call home. ... more

Patr ... Mr. Censored, your photo reminds me of the guys who paint faces on people's stomachs and it is frightening me. HAHAHAHA

I am glad for the focus back to center stage.

I like the idea. I think a uniform side of the flyer would be nice that is a PDF that anyone can download and put their own info on the front. I can design a special mark that is a Trulia OPEN HOUSE design perhaps?
And maybe Trulia can set aside a URL subfolder for the open house to place a downloadable PDF for any agent who would like participate. Hint hint to Trulia if they are interested ;-)

We would like to participate here in Roseville, CA.

Great idea MR. C.

Explain the rules have changed for what makes a strong buyer, the old standards are good gauges for what makes a good offer. 1. Money down (LTV) 2.Terms of the Note & Rate 3. Credit Scores (don't be shy - ask for them. An learn what they mean.) There are still plenty of solid buyers. Have a mortgage expert on the sellers side to - get your listing pre-approved for a mortgage/know what a qualified buyer would look like on paper. ... more
