You think your Agent is allowed to show ONLY your house?
What other houses is she ALLOWED to show and sell?

Not sure I understand the question. How did the buyer agent have access to the unit? did you have a sellers agent? Are you saying that the buyers agent staged the unit and listed on MLS as the sellers agent without your permission? ... more

You'll need to check your original lease agreement. Your terms generally stay the same with the onset of a new owner, meaning that in this case the new owner would not need to give you an additional notice to move.

Your lease agreement may say something different. So please review agreement and speak to legal counsel with specific questions.

Hi Kelly!

I sure do hope you and your husband move here! Charlotte is an amazing city, and is only growing!

The packages that new builders are offering for new construction are as advertised! Typically the price you see online will be the base price (which includes the finished, livable home, microwave, stove, blinds, etc) and you can do a few additions in there. Just count on adding between $5-$10k in the purchase price for all the sweet additions you would want! But overall, it isn't a gimmick or a bait and switch.

If you would like, shoot me an email or call/text me and I will send you some ideas as to what I'm talking about. Look forward to working for you :)

Jim Olive answered:
An excellent question for your Realtor. It depends largely on the inspection clause of your contract. Many contracts allow you to void the contract without penalty for ANY reason ("at the sole discretion of the buyer"). What does yours say?
A problem like that, found during inspection, can be an good bargaining tool, and here's how that might work: You are concerned about the grade and the cost you will incur to correct it. If the seller is unwilling to share or cover that cost, you will be unable to afford the home and will need to void your contract and walk away. The seller wants to sell. If s/he is concerned there won't be other buyers ready, willing and able to step in where you left off, they will be invested in keeping the contract alive. In that case they will work with you.
Another possible outcome is the seller will say "okay, the grade may be low and the drainage may be bad, but we've never had a problem with it".
Work with your Realtor and navigate this cirmcumstance to the mutual satisfaction of you and the sellers. Best of luck with your home purchase...

Len Montgomery answered:
Unfortunately at this point your only options as I see them are to find a private investor (their are some out there) or negotiate with the seller to extend your option. If you have a good payment history, it will be better for the seller to have you to continue with payments as opposed to someone who may not pay well after the lose of a month or two of any income and the cost to get it ready for the next person (i.e. cleaning, paint, marketing costs). I wish I had a better option to present, but closing by the end of the month with great credit would be nearly impossible.

Best wishes!!

Generally foreclosed homes are purchased 'as is'. It would be the buyer's responsibility for repairs.
Good luck,

Perhaps you want to look for an Accredited Buyer's Agent. That means an agent who has taken specific courses in more thoroughly representing buyers but not to the exclusion of also listing houses and in the case of listing, representing sellers. ... more

Hello Robert,

Hopefully the below paragraph from our Colorado contract is helpful. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of additional service.

7.3.3. Any Sale (or Lease if § 3.5.2 is checked) of the Property within calendar days following the expiration of the Listing Period (Holdover Period) to (1) to anyone with whom Broker negotiated and (2) whose name was submitted, in writing, to Seller by Broker during the Listing Period including any extensions thereof, (Submitted Prospect). Provided, however, Seller Shall Shall Not (check one) owe the commission to Brokerage Firm under this § 7.3.3 if a commission is earned by another licensed real estate brokerage firm acting pursuant to an exclusive agreement entered into during the Holdover Period and a Sale or Lease to a Submitted Prospect is consummated. If no box is checked above in this § 7.3.3, then Seller shall not owe the commission to Brokerage Firm.

Having taken a college course in COMMUNICATION, I learned that when there is a breakdown in communication; it is my fault! Seriously!

Your Agent failed to break-down the different Closing Costs: He is the expert, you are the CLIENT.
He should have been more explicit.
But he wasn't trying to bamboozle.

Both parties normally have their own Closing Costs.

Ray Akers answered:
In some states, attorneys play a primary role in real estate transactions. In Washington State, the law provides for licensed real estate brokers to handle real estate sales. Attorney's often compliment the work of agents, but they are usually assisting in an advisory capacity. There are attorneys that specialize in real estate law, and you should seek out an attorney who specializes in real estate if you have an issue involving real estate. Good luck. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
It's impossible to say.

My guess--a pure guess--is that you'll get the loan. But have your agent stay on top of it, and you stay on top of it, too. Don't just be passive and wait. the 40% down certainly covers Chase's position. And if the file gets bumped up to someone with enough authority, your prior work history, reason for not working recently, and your credit score should persuade him/her to approve the loan. But you have to make sure that the file is reviewed by someone with that authority...and in enough time for closing.

Hope that helps.
