Not all agents are created equal; you can contact your agents broker owner and or office manager, express your all your concerns; you can ask to be released from the contract, or ask to be assigned another agent from within for the duration of that contract. ... more

You will not be sued, that is unlikely. Your contract is NOT with the agent but with the company. Most sellers never totally realize this. You have contracted for 6 months to use that company to list your house for sale and you might be using a certain agent in that office. There is a boss there and the boss is called the Primary Broker, or Broker in Charge or Principal Broker, but each office has one. Your listing is with that person and that broker can assign another agent to handle your listing. The current agent will not be happy, but you can ask the broker to assign you a new agent to finish up the remainder of the contract. The broker also has the power to cancel the listing contract too. ... more

Most boards have application packets for prospective buyers. They ask for information about your employment, income, savings, investments, assets, & debts. They usually want a letter of employment, bank statements & tax returns to verify the information.

Some applications are only a few pages long, others I've seen are in excess of 30 pages. It just depends on the board & management company.

Hope this helps

Another studio 550 sq ft sold this year for 186K, you bought when the market started to change. What is your sqare footage? Was it updated when you bought it? I'm not sure you necessarily overpaid but if you are thinking of selling it now you may not get what you paid for it. This is a very common scenario for the people that bought when you did and right before. Unfortunately many are not recouping updates they have made, etc. If you don't have to sell stay for awhile. Future buyers will look at what has sold recently and the one comp doesn't help your case. Again I would need to know the size and condition to really tell.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further help.

For a while, Westchester was not considered a declining market, as was the real estate market considered to be on a national basis. Recently, this has changed and as I'm sure you are aware, the market here has now been affected. I have heard of your situation occurring with other home buyers so you are not alone. Good luck in purchasing your new home! ... more
