I suspect that there may not be a closing if it's simply a "no show." If someone is simply not available at a prescribed time, there are work arounds. My information should not be construed as advice and no decisions should be based upon these statements. I do not have enough information. In most situations, both parties will need to sign the paperwork in order to close and transfer title. A seller can and will sometimes meet their attorney before the actual closing and not attend. Sometimes a person who holds a POA that will allow them to sign for another party. That is subject to the verification and acceptance of any POA documentation. In general, all parties do usually sign, but they don't always meet together at the same table in order to put ink on paper. Your attorney, title company, and REALTOR will advise you based upon your situation. ... more

That is perfectly fine if the Title company has all the signatures that they need on the documents to close the deal.

It is normal that BOTH sellers and buyers are not at the same table during the closing.

Good luck.

Hey Bill, you should check with your attorney regarding this, I am not sure if you are in contract or not. But there are builders that use deposit money towards building the home if that is what you are asking. But anytime they want to do that it is fully disclosed in any contracts you would sign. In terms of access, every builder is different. Typically I would say most that I have dealt with allow access as long as they are there and it is arranged for insurance purposes. Good luck. ... more

Hi Kristi. In New Jersey, the commission is typically paid at the closing table from the seller's proceeds. The Checks are made payable to the agencies with whom the agent's are employed. The agent is then paid a portion of those proceeds from their agency.

It may take you awhile to get your money back if at all. Once a corporation or business (in this case the developer) files for bankruptcy, all assets are frozen. The courts will decide how the money, if any, left in the company will be distributed. ... more

Confused on your question regarding the first home - if it is foreclosed upon and bank owned - the auction took place and the bank took back ownership. If its still in pre-foreclosure status, the home will go to auction. You can go to the County website in which the home is located and provided you know the address and/or owner's name you should be able to perform a search. I know with Essex County only the homes up for auction for that week are listed so you would have to check back week to week. Again, if you know the address, you have the option of contacting the homeowner directly.

Regarding the second home, what is the status - REO or pre-foreclosure. A pre-foreclosure doesn't always mean the house is available for purchase. The owners may have defaultd on their loan but could have made other arrangements with the lender such as a workout, loan mod or even cured the default by paying what was past due. Again, if you know the address, you can contact the owner directly.

I'm not in your area so I cannot assit you in purchasing a foreclosure home but you should find a buyer's agent with experience in REO/short sales.

Good luck.
