It depends on your broker and the bank you are receiving the loan from. If you continue to have problems or questions don't hesitate to contact me.

Hi, It must be requested for release by the escrow co., and if there are no disputes on who the money should be returned to, and the contract & addenda state the offer has been cancelled formally, then it should be only a matter of processing time. Some local places I've seen quickly cut a check, however, I've seen some places take up to a week to formally 'process' the check and mail it, etc. It just depends, as the escrow holder is bound to the contract terms and not who placed the money into escrow. Your Realtor should be assisting you with your return in a timely manner, OR should be explaining clearly to you what the delay is and an anticipated time frame to return it. Please let me know if you have further questions. Best of luck! Thanks!

NO, is not better. It is the same. Listing agent is an agent as any other agent and if the listing agent feels any confelect, he/she will advise buyer to get their own agent.

Our advice to Buyers is to speak with a reputable mortgage lender to get pre-qualified. Perhaps you can go to the bank or credit union where you have your checking/savings accounts and ask to speak to one of their mortgage pros - Good luck! It is a great time to buy - ... more

If it is bank owned I am surprised there are any occupants in it. Once it is foreclosed and the bank buys it they make the house empty, banks don't like to be landlords and would rather have a vacant house. It can always be difficult to evict anyone and sometimes they get mad and take it out on the house as they do the midnight move. ... more

Owner financing is a great option if you can find the house you like that offers owner carry terms. The only drawback that I hear of is if the seller lives nearby, they might check in on the place frequently, and let you know if you are not keeping the place up to their liking! Also some owners will escrow for taxes and insurance, to make sure they get paid, but many will not, so you will have to pay out of pocket for those when due. ... more

here's another question that requires a legal really need to ask a real estate attorney about whether you can just walk away, or risk losing your deposit.....or worse.......can you be sued for breach of contract for more than the 20,000??

the sellers can make sure the house is inspected and brought up to code.........whether the property taxes will increase or not is another sotry.

no one here can tell you that

Why would you question all the realtors?

Have you purchased 500 homes in the past few years?

Well I'm sure the professional realtors giving you this good advice have been involved in this many deals!

It has almost become rude and inconsiderate for any buyer needing a loan to close on a deal in 2012 to ask to even look at homes without doing something so easy and basic as taking time to get pre qualified to obtain a letter.


If you were a seller, I would tell to you that NOBODY gains access to your home without a letter..PERIOD!

With a 20% down conventional loan in our area you can close in as little as two weeks. But I'd say the "norm" is thiry days.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
A short sale occurs BEFORE the bank takes the property back, before the bank actually forecloses. The bank does not OWN the property, the seller does, even if they are behind in payments. A buyer makes an offer to purchase the home for less than the amount owed on the mortgage, the owner accepts that offer and then the offer is submitted to the bank for approval. The bank is going to lose money on the transaction and they will try to minimize their losses by coming as close to market value for the home as they can, however, the process can take a long time and the buyer can usually expect a discount for their time and trouble. The home is taken in 'as is' condition because the bank will not make repairs or even make an allowance for repairs that need to be done so a buyer needs to be sure they know the condition of the home and make their offer based on that information.

A foreclosure sale occurs AFTER the bank has completed the foreclosure process and the bank then actually OWNS the property. You still have to negotiate the purchase with the bank, which can be frustrating because banks are not acting rationally these days, and, again, the repairs will generally not be made so the buyer has to know the condition of the property and base his offer accordingly.

It is actually sometimes easier to get a good price on a short sale than on a foreclosure because the banks have less to lose at that point in time and the homes are usually in better condition because they are still occupied.

My advice would be to look at both options. Find a good realtor who is experienced in both short sales and foreclosures and follow their advice.

Without a buyer broker representing you, you should then hire a lawyer as a contract is legal and onme should not attempt unless they are expereinced with contract law. You first need to assess how much the house is worth in todays market to know what to answer. You then have to draw up a contract with teh specific contingincies needed to protect you in case you cannot get a mortgage or if it does not pass an inspection or does not appraise at the sales price. A good buyer broker mor ethan covers their fee by saving you money on your offer price and protections with the contract and buying process. ... more

I'd say by using one of those services and you can quote me,"You get what you pay for". When I work for a seller a buyer I have their best interest at heart and that's called a fiduciary duty. I'm there 100% for them. These services are usually less than professional and give our occupation a bad name.

Good luck,

The thing is with a roof you can see from teh ground that shingles are at the end of their life, you should have negotiated that from the beginning if was a concern or offered that much less knowing it would need a new roof soon. A lot of sellers are not renegotiating after an inspection, it is up to you whether you want to buy as is or if you want to use the contingincy to get out. You have to be within teh dates on your contract. you should ask your buyer agent to guide you. ... more

I may be wrong,

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Define 'bad credit'. Many people think they have terrible credit when it's really not that bad. You can reach out to the company suggested below. You can also talk to a local mortgage banker. The banker will look at your situation and tell you what, if anything, you can do right now. If not now they can give you some tips on how to improve your credit and how long it will take for the improvements to show up on your credit report. A lot of times they will tell you what needs to be done and you can do it yourself, but I must say, if Tari is correct, it's a small price to pay to have someone do it for you. The process can be very time consuming. ... more
