Sounds like you're in a short sale transaction. There are so many variables that it's really next to impossible for anybody outside the transaction to provide any sound guidance. You should ask your agent these questions. ... more

Good Morning,

There are no set commission costs, however, the average total commission is about 6% in Las Vegas. Closing costs will vary between 1-3% depending how the buyers offer is written. Feel free to contact me to discuss the costs in more detail.

If she had a signed agreement with them, then when a sale occurs, the money is due. Someone will have to pay the agent. I would have your attorney look into the issue though asap.

Christine Schwirtz answered:
The short answer is no. You really should be working with a Realtor. You should not pay and have an inspection untill your offer has been accepted. You may be able to talk to your inspector and see if he will give you a discount on another inspection, however since the inspection is for your protection he or she may not do that for you. I would be happy to represent you ... more

Not sure why you are asking this particular question about a property that is JUST a public record information on Trulia, in other words look at the link you provided for us, in the link it clearly states
SOLD, so since this property currently is not for sale, you may want to think about how you are going to proceed with your home search....

I am assuming that you are not working with a Buyers Agent? Am I correct? You really should, there are so many, really many advantages to a buyer to work with his own committed Buyers Agent, a Realtor, experienced and knowledgeable in the market area you are interested in and your one stop real estate resource and guidance. Do not do this on your own. A buyers agent requires from you the buyer to be loyal to one trusted Realtor and to commit to just that one agent with open communication and that agent will consequently answer all your questions, assist in finding the right property for YOU, arrange showings, make suggestions and recommendations for each property viewed, and when ready to make and offer your personal buyers agent will provide you with a detailed market evaluation so that you will be able to provide a market friendly yet competitive offer on the home, and this agent you trust will then guide you through all the steps, paying attention to every details involved and guide you to a smooth and successful closing.

And by the way all that is required from you is your loyalty, no fees as the buyers agents of listings of another brokerage are paid by the seller's side at the closing table.... Do not do this on your own and
without the expertise of a professional on your side.

If you need a good recommendation for your area of interest e-mail me and I gladly forward a good
recommendation to you.
Good Luck to you

You got it. The home owner associations for these communities require applications (often lengthy), application fee and an interview with at least one board member. They basically want to know for certain all the information you just mentioned about yourself. They do want to see your financials, even if you are purchasing this condo for cash, they want to make sure you will be able to continue paying the HOA fee and have the excess funds to do so.

Enlisting the help of a realtor will be the most accurate method. An appraiser can be of help as well.

Because agents are lazy and don't follow the mls rules. I apologize for all agents since this gives us a bad name. If you would like I will go get pictures of the home for you.

Talk to the lender about 'non-allowables'

Some fees the veteran cannot pay. So the seller pays them. This will figure into your offer/negotiations.
The listing agent or your broker can help you with these too.

Shelly Koehler answered:
I think this is a fantastic area to purchase a condo in. As you stated right by SMU so a wonderful investment property. Buying real estate has always been a great way to build wealth, but with where rates are at it is making it especially appealing and advantageous. SMU area tends to draw nice rental amounts. Uptown residents are used to the condo dues and can certainly be factored into how much rent you collect. Feel free to use my website, set up any listing alerts you like or contact me for any further information or questions you may have. Blessings

Katherine Morrison answered:
Approval should take no more than 24 to 48 hours from the time you submit your application. Normally, the upfront monies are the first month's rent, the security deposit (usually equal to 1 month's rent) and any additional deposits required for pets, if applicable.

The rental market is moving pretty fast here. Hope that helps!

Your brothers friend was right. With a living trust everything is very simple. Have your sister list the home and handle the paperwork. Escrow will handle the transfer/sale from trust in escrow. The proceeds should go to your moms trust and the money divided there. Sorry for your loss. If you need an agent to sell the home give me a call.

Depends on how much cash for down pay and your credit score. 2 Bed Condos in good areas are running about $60,000 and can get you $100 to $200 a month positive cash flow. Good 3 bed 2 bath can go for around $90,000 to $100,000 and get you $200 to $400. Condos are all cash, houses can be financed with 25% down.

Thomas Feng answered:
Hi Esark33,

One of the strategies that I use to help my buyers get into homes is writing offers with no appraisal contingency because this acts like a cash offer.

A reality that my buyers had to face just like you is buying a smaller house. Say they are pre approved to $600,000 this might actually mean that you can only afford a home on the market at $500,000 because the price eventually gets bid up.

Give me a call at (408) 840-3852 or to further discuss your situation and how to write a winning offer.
