Aaron Sims answered:
Your agent should be answering your questions. This is thier job. As you are represented by an agent other agents should not be offering you advice. Your agent should be looking out for your best interest and you should be aware of everything that is going on. Talk to your Realtor and let them tell you your options. You should get a copy of the contract to a real state attorney to look at and tell you legaly where you stand as we can't give legal advice.
Best of luck.

There's a deeper issue here - and as indicated by the prior responses it would be advisable for you to get the name of the loan officer, or just simply call the 2-3 Wells Fargo offices in Youngstown and find out who is working with this particular borrower - and then get the details. Nothing is taking this long right now, and as previously stated - a person should never be too busy to call back. Best of luck to you! ... more

I've been a realtor in Youngstown since 1976 and grew up on the Northside. The important question is " what is the address on the Northside ? " The marketing and eventual sale of your property may be a substantial challenge. Email me detailed info on your property and I'll give you an honest evaluation of the ability to sell it. ... more

Keith Sorem answered:
The best person to help you is a local Realtor who knows the market, knows your home, and your personal situation (when you need to move, how much you expect to net when you sell, etc.).

For example, if most of the homes in your area are like yours (1950s ranch, clean, but not updated), then they can suggest options that will help you get the most for your home.

Here is an example of what not to do: I was asked by a seller to help them get their home sold when it failed to sell the first time. She had invested $6,000 in a new master bath. The bath looked great, but the real issues were that the home desperately need a kitchen update, new carpet, and paint. Had she invested the money in these more visible items, people never would have noticed the bath.

So it's not how much you spend, its where you spend it. Just because they always says the highest return is on bathrooms and kitchens, they are also the most expensive.

Vicky Chrisner answered:
You're the listing agent? Do you have an answer? I would expect one if I were your client. Remember, properties sell - or dont - because of
People (seller or listing agent)
Promotion (a strong MLS listing with lots of photos and strong internet ads, a sign and supplemental print ads)
Product (staging helps to improve this)

The right price and promotion will overcome any people or product related issues.
