Linda Lloyd answered:
as a Realtor, when I list a house I give my seller projections on the selling costs, then when we have an agreed upon contract I again redo the sellers closings costs with the exact dates and agreed to expenses - part of a proper listing presentation is to review those numbers with you before you list your home so you know where you are headed - I would be happy to help - Linda Lloyd - Acorn Realty (479)855-2280 ... more

Absolutely, in fact I encourage all sellers to get pre-approved prior to selling their home so that they know what amount they can be qualified for on their next home.
I would be happy to pre-approve you when you are ready.

Sometimes it takes a bit to update from the other resources Trulia gets info for.

The best bet is having an agent look it up on the MLS for the most up to date information on pricing and the status of a home.

Let me know if you have questions.

Jim Olive answered:
There is no "correct" answer to this question. Gas and Oil have traded back and forth for years as the less expensive option and nobody can predict with accuracy which way it will go next. It could be a major investment to shift that never pays off in the long run, and which you will likely never be able to establish if it was what sold your home. If you have a lot of people saying "boy, I would have bought that house if it was only gas heat", then maybe...but that's not very likely. Now, if you had electric heat, that might be a different story. Best of luck on the sale of your home... ... more

No. You are not. Not sure why any Realtor would have you complete a property Disclosure without a completed Listing Agreement.

Depends primarily on the location. Lots of people are looking to move closer into the city, so if you can rehab a home in a desirable location, you can make a nice return on your investment. ... more

As in real estate, there is no "typical" fee. Each one prices based on the value they place on themselves. Discounted service may result from discounted dollars.

As long as when the appraisal is done, the house meets FHA or Fannie Mae guidelines it will be fine. Your Realtor should be able to tell you if it needs any work to meet loan guidelines when selling. If it does meet guidelines for getting financing on it, the seller credit will definitely help with the selling process. Please call anytime with further questions.

Hi Pierce1208,

If you sell your house for less than what you owe, it is a Short Sale. Your lender(s) has to approve the Short Sale and you have to prove financial hardship before they will approve it. It is usually 2 years before you can purchase again - unless you pay all cash. However, if you do a Short Sale (proving financial hardship) you wouldn't have the cash to pay all cash.

Commissions are always negotiable, but keep in mind that agents cannot reduce their commission rate without their broker's permission.

And I would add that hiring an agent based solely on their rate is not the best way to find excellence. ... more

Changing hardware on kitchen cabinets, decluttering your home, painting rooms to neutral colors or accent walls, are a few to think about.
