You might not have an obligation, but the Probate proceeds might be negatively effected a great deal. Its usually recommended you try to work it out with the lender through a loan assumption, short sale or deed-in-lieu . ... more

Every problem you posed is a question for either an Attorney or a Tax professional:
Realtors are counsuled not to answer those types of questions;
Mostly because we'd probably be wrong!

One question back at you; If she had the Living Trust; where did it go?

Brian Byhower answered:
I'm not sure if I understand the question. Are you in contract to buy the home? Does it matter if it appraisers higher with a second appraisal? You should hope it does. That would mean instant equity for you. Why is everyone saying "oh no"? If the seller sold you the home at a price you both aggreed upon, even if it appraises higher, he can't cancel the sale without you agreeing to cancel, too. You should be happy, not feeling like you're being cheated. Talk to your agent. ... more

Cameron Piper answered:

It all depends on what the agreement your husband works out with his parents says. Since they are loaning the money, they have the right to demand to be put into title, but they may not care. Whether or not your name is on the title, you will hold a marital interest in the property. Meaning that because you are married, you hold a half interest in all of your husband's real estate and he holds a half interest in all of yours.

Make sure you have a dynamite real estate agent explain to you the differences between joint tenants and tenants in common, and once you understand them, work with the title company that closes your sale to make sure you enter title for the new house in the appropriate manner.

Good luck in the upcoming purchase. Let me know if you need help in locating a real estate agent in Rochester to help you - I am more than happy to pass along a name for you.

Ron Thomas answered:
"Estate Sale Closing"; what does that mean?
Was this a PROBATE property?
Did you use an Attorney?
Did you use a Realtor?
Did you use a Title Company?
Who is holding money?

In a "NORMAL" sale, it should be about 3 days; but can we assume that this is a normal sale? ... more

Thank you for your question tg1199

I have a great deal of experience with short sale and bank owned properties here in the San Jose Area.

I expect that you are looking for the best deal, is that correct?"

I look for the best deal whether it is a short sale, bank owned property, probate sale, company owned property, regular distress sale or a sale for some other reason. I do not limit myself and my clients to only short sales and bank owned properties.

I get my clients the best deals wherever I can find them.

For more information, you may call me at my cell phone: (408)509-6218

Thank you,

CHRIS DURBAN answered:
I would recommend getting your Realtor to help you. As a Realtor, we work closely with the Title Companies. They can guide you as to what documentation you have to provide for the deceased owner. Depending on how the property was recorded you may have to get a Probate Attorney involved. Meanwhile, if you are trying to sell, your Realtor can help and guide you. ... more

Oggi Kashi answered:
You would normally hire a realtor unless you are going for foreclosure auction sales at the courthouse steps, in which case you would hire an attorney.

As for bidding, it all depends on the type of property, location, condition and the initial price set by the bank. Sometimes foreclosures sell for less than the asking price.

Sia Howe answered:
As a rule yes, however it all comes down to what was agreed upon in writing in the contract and signed by both the buyer and seller. In the southern NV area most all REATORS use what is called the GLVAR Residential Purchase Agreement. The clause that says that the purchase of the home is contingent on financing needs to be completed. The denial for the loan needs to be legitamate.

Everything needs to be in writing, there is protection for both the buyer and the seller in our contracts.

If you are already in contract you should discuss this with your agent. If you are not I would be happy to explain this or any other subject concerning purchasing a home.

Wishing you the Best!

Why did you stick with her for 7 months. It seems a bit late now. You contract with the office she is in and NOT with an agent. You could have asked the office broker to assign a different agent for you to work with. But it's a bit late now. ... more

Christopher Lefebvre answered:
The true value of a property is the highest amount that all willing and able buyers are willing to pay for a property after it has been advertised properly on the open market. I don't know your area, but one question is what have similar homes sold for in your area? My advice is for you to contact 2 to 3 local agents and ask for price opinions. ... more

Louis Wolfson answered:
What does your attorney have to say?

Who's name is on the deed? Are you current on the mortgage? Do you want to sell the home? Is it worth more than you owe?

If both names are on deed - no

Current on mtg and don't want to sell - no

Worth more than you owe - no

Any financial hardships (other than your ex) - no

Have the court enforce the divorce agreement and have deed conveyed to you - just my suggestion - check with your attorney

Patricia Mack,

What are your FAVORITE things about LA? What are your least favorite things? If traffic is high on your list of least favorite then you'll love the Antelope Valley - if you like fancy restaurants and star watching (people stars) then you may find yourself bored with the AV.

The best thing is your only 45-60 minutes from Hollywood (always depending on traffic) and you can drive or take the Metrolink ~ whichever you prefer.

We are quite a nice community with lots of restaurants, a mall, minor league baseball team, movie theaters and so much more!

I hope I can assist you if you decide to buy in the AV.

If the mortgage isn't being paid then I would imagine that the bank retains the right to foreclose regardless of the estate status.

Not to sound like a broken record but you need legal counsel. Real estate licensees cannot give you legal advice. ... more
