Dear NYCBrowser:

When a homeowner actually lists with a real estate broker the agents are protected because they know if the property sells within the time frame of the listing agreement they will be paid a commission. This is called an exclusive right to sell. The agent does not have to worry about the perspective buyer and homeowner attempting to make a deal behind the agents back to avoid paying a commission.

If you truly want to sell the property yourself, you should just do it yourself and do not allow real estate agents to show the property. If you are going to allow agents to bring in buyers and are also willing to pay them a fee if they bring you a good buyer or deal, you should just forget about doing the "for sale by owner" thing and just list it with an agent and pay the fee.

There are two reasons why I say this... 1) It is a statistically proven fact that homes listed with a real estate agent get significantly higher sales prices (up to 5-10% more) which justifies the agents fee and 2) if you are going to pay a fee anyway, when you list you get so many more benefits in addition to the agent simply bringing in a buyer. These benefits usually include but are not limited to newspaper and Internet marketing, placement on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS... if you do not know what this is call me please) and the highest level of exposure you can get. Higher exposure equates to higher sales price! People that really know about real estate know this is all true.

Keep in mind that all real estate agents differ in the ways and extent to which they market properties and some are better than others. If you do list just make sure the agent has a specific marketing plan for your property and offers some kind of guarantee of service.

I am a licensed real estate agent in Brooklyn and I would love the opportunity to help you and also I would like to find out more about your property. Please contact me direct and I can offer you more advise that will be helpful. Either way, good luck!

Within reason I would say yes. What are they asking you for? Understand that the value of your property will also depend on upkeep and maintenance which your association fee covers. Every owner should be concerned. ... more

In some areas you can check with the property management division of a Real Estate company or just check under Property Management for your area on line.

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
And what else has the landlord "offered" to do?
Why is the seller willing to do this?

A rent with the option to own arrangement usually favors the seller.

There are a number of pitfalls that a buyer needs to beware of.

If you can't qualify now for a loan, or don't have a down payment, and that's why you would consider this arrangement......make very sure everything will come together for you at the end of the lease, or you could forfeit any upfront /deposit money.

Also - with this arrangement, the price is agreed to now - do you want to guess what the valeu will be a year or so from now?
Also - why hasn't the home sold as yet? Is it overpriced?
Usually sellers who are desperate and can't sell their homes now may turn to this sort of option.
Is the seller financially sound?
If they stop paying the mortgage, you will have no recourse...and they will have your money.

Make very sure you understand everything that caan come into play with this kind of deal.

Absolutely hire a real estate attorney to make sure your rights are my opinion, rent for now and buy when you are financially able to do so.

Best wishes.......

Hi Donna,
If the seller has already signed a contract with the realtor then he is bound by the contract to use the agent to represent him. That agent will be looking out for the best interest of the seller. You on the other hand will not have someone looking out for your best interest. I have helped many buyers work with FSBO's or FSBO's who decide to hire an agent. Call me 719-661-8672 or email me and let me show you how I can represent you and it not cost you anything.

In theory the rent can be changed up until a lease is signed. It, like most things, is negotiable. How do you know that is the reason the rent is being raised??

Terry Bell answered:
Yes, contact some of the great realtors here on Trulia that handle your area. They will give you several referrals to loan brokers, or you can contact some of the loan brokers here directly. The lender should be able to evaluate your situation and let you know how much cash you need to bring into the deal, whether you need to clean up any credit problems and create a "pre-approval letter" for your realtor to be able to know what's the max they can look for you. If you want to go FHA with a low down, you must be prepared to settle for something that will meet the guidelines, and your agent will be best able to find the perfect fit. ... more

Find a good realtor. The banks will not work with you directly. Foreclosed homes and short sale homes only become available for purchase when they are listed with a realtor, so it is really the only way and you will be happy to have the advice and guidance of an experienced realtor. And it won't cost you a penny, the commission is paid by the bank. ... more
