Good Morning
I think in todays market its critical to learn your market. Know which are the best buys in the price range and area you are searching. I have taught a process that will assure you know your market to over 25,000 home buyers in the Seattle area. You will find it outlined at
Properties are moving so fast many people are over paying in the heat of competition. Gather up as much information as you can before you buy and be sure to have an inspection. And if you are a first time home buyer the MCC Tax Credit is amazing.
Trulia is also a good source of information and when you are ready you will find Seattle agents and loan officers offering their services on Trulia
Best of Luck, stephen webber

First, I would totally ignore Zillow. It is not very accurate, so not something you should base any decisions on. Your ability to negotiate price will depend much more on the market in that particular area for that type of house.

Second, I can't tell what you're asking about with a dual agent from the facts you're giving. In Washington unless you've signed a buyer's agency agreement with an agent, it's very unlikely you really have dual agency (as opposed to the agent incorrectly thinking they are a dual agent.) If the agent has a listing agreement on a house, then chances are they would always be the seller's agent. If the agent does not have a listing agreement, then chances are they are the buyer's agent.

Pre-forclosure is more than likely going to stay with you for 10 years. If you're credit is run, it'll show that you didn't pay your mortgage. This will be a red flag. But keep in mind, if you are caught up and pay everything you owe (i.e. credit cards, mortgage, taxes, etc) for the next 2 years you're credit score will be in good standing and it more than likely will not be an issue. I know this as a family member of mine with through the exact same thing. After two years of struggling to get everything back, they were able to get a car and begin again on a good path.

Good luck.

In order to determine a fair price, review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests and go from there....

As long as when the appraisal is done, the house meets FHA or Fannie Mae guidelines it will be fine. Your Realtor should be able to tell you if it needs any work to meet loan guidelines when selling. If it does meet guidelines for getting financing on it, the seller credit will definitely help with the selling process. Please call anytime with further questions.

Hi Pierce1208,

If you sell your house for less than what you owe, it is a Short Sale. Your lender(s) has to approve the Short Sale and you have to prove financial hardship before they will approve it. It is usually 2 years before you can purchase again - unless you pay all cash. However, if you do a Short Sale (proving financial hardship) you wouldn't have the cash to pay all cash.

Commissions are always negotiable, but keep in mind that agents cannot reduce their commission rate without their broker's permission.

And I would add that hiring an agent based solely on their rate is not the best way to find excellence. ... more

HI April: In this market you definitely have to sell the contingency. That means providing lots of information about the sale upon which the contingency is based. And I mean all information that can you can legally provide. Assuming there is a contract in place (which, of course, is not always the case in contingent sales), it also would be a good idea to promise updated information about the contractual deadlines as they expire. I think most people are more comfortable taking a small risk when they know exactly what is going on.

Ron Thomas answered:
You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

There is no FORM printed by anyone; there are just too many variables.
The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!

Good luck and May God bless

Homes located in higher ranking school districts are higher than those not located in higher ranking school districts.

Home values are determined by their location. A home right across the street from a school may cost less due to traffic, noise, lighting, etc. ... more

R. Ryan Bowman answered:
It is when the seller is trying to sell their home for less than the mortgage they have on it. After an offer is rec'd they bank has to also review and accept it. There has to be a valid hardship for the seller (unemployment, sickness etc. ). This process is typically longer than a traditional sale because of waiting for the bank to respond to an offer. I would be happy to talk to you further about this. ... more

Bobbie Ehrenpreis answered:
Depends on your interest and your budget. Condos and planned unit developments are usually less expensive than home purchases - there is less that you are buying - you are not buying land. However, there is a homeowner's association fee per month to manage the land and other commonly held assets. I usually consider the monthly fee a good deal for the homeowner as the same services would cost an individual homeowner more. You have to come to our area and look to see what your purchasing power will buy you and see what would be of interest to you. A good investment usually depends on LOCATION! Buy a reasonably priced home or condo in the best location you can afford! ... more

Hello RCA888,

Improving the curb appeal will help yield better on your returns than a new roof. Do those thing to your home that help the buyers picture themselves in the property. Items like Landscape front and rear, fresh interior and/or exterior paint and upgrades to the kitchen and baths all increase both the value of the home and the interest from buyers. A good Realtor should not only be able to guide you on these matters but have the contacts to get the job done.

Picking a Realtor isn't hard at all, you just found one.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Haig Istamboulian answered:

The answer to that is YES you can still short sell your home. I am guessing you are dealing with a Realtor? Have your Realtor send the offer and any necessary documentation, to the lender IMMEDIATELY and open a line of communication with them.

It is obviously too late to postpone the Sheriff sale (if it happened on the 12th). If for some reason it has not happened yet, talk to someone at the lender and ask them who you need to talk to, to postpone the Sheriff Sale.

If it is too late, don't worry, you still have a 6 month redemption period in order to try and accomplish this. It would have been better if you were trying to sell your home sooner than you did, what were you doing the past few months, was your home listed for a while and JUST got an offer?

Whatever you do, start on Monday and make some calls, or have your Realtor do it. You need to get the offer "in line" at the lender along with their other Short Sales to get the process started. There is still NO guarantee the bank will accept the offer but you never know with a short sale.

Best case scenario would be that the Sheriff Sale has NOT occured yet. Get on the phone and start making some calls to see which department you need to reach and who you need to talk too.

Good Luck!
