Dan, this happens all the time where you can get multiple offers on the same house. Talk to your agent about it and figure out your options, good luck.

Didn't I just answer this question a minute ago?

Pay the difference or have the Seller come down to the appraisal price. A lender is not going to loan you more than the home is worth. ... more

Lance King answered:
Most likely the biggest problem is the down payment as you are competing with buyers who have a lot more skin in the game. What would you do as a seller if you had equal offers, one with 3.5% down and one with 20% or more? ... more

you need to speak with the lender who is doing your loan, if you do not have one call Kevin Rahill at 707-246-1010, this is not a job for someone new in the lending industry, He has 20 experience. ... more

Hi Genie,

This is a great question, but it was most likely missed because it was posted into "All Locations", I'd recommend that you repost in a location closer to you to get more answers, like Denver, CO:

Good luck with your search,

Gail Gladstone answered:

If the listing agent is showing the premises and not allowing other agents to show it (nor allowing you to have your own representation), the listing agent is in violation of MLS Rules and certainly not conducting herself in a legal or morally acceptable manner.

As a Realtor, I would file a complaint with the Multiple Listing Service and local board of Realtors against this person. She is obviously only interested in getting the deal for herself and is certainly NOT working in the best interest of her client.

I would also let the stratus agent know what you encountered. He should be informed of the improper behavior of the listing agent.

This kind of behavior is appalling!

This property sold twice in 2008. 1st at $84,900 and then at $149,900 a couple of months later. It is now a HUD home Under Contract with the listing price of $112,000. We as Realtors or the general public are not allowed to know the amount of the winning bid until it closes. I hope that helps.

Stephanie Weiss answered:
I would recommend speaking to a lender "first", but I believe to get an FHA loan, the minimum credit score is 620 so that would be a goal to work towards. If you start a conversation with a lender now, they can get you on the fast track to getting your score where it needs to be. All the best! ... more

Grant Brubaker answered:
That is a question that can only be answered " It Depends". Since people opinions vary greatly many will have a different idea. You also have to ask what you are looking for. What is important to you. An area with high ranking schools may be close to dairy farms. Some people mind them, some people don't. Some people may not have kids so they do not care about the schools, but they are looking for a home with a great view or maybe some land. In order to answer your questions your priorities need to be known. Based on that we can narrow your search based on our knowledge of the area and statistics which are available. ... more
