Dear Nataliya:

Are you a real estate agent? If you are your broker should be training you and teaching you how to determine a property's true value. If you are not a real estate agent, you should have several agents meet with you, take a look at the apartment and offer their opinion of it's market value. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck!

Dear Jclubit:

From a legal perspective it is not required for you to have an attorney. However, I will say that in the 20 years that I have been a real estate agent, I have never done a deal where the buyer and/or seller did not have an attorney. I once had a buyer who tried to go without an attorney, but we could not make the deal because the seller's attorney refused to do the deal due to the fear that if there was a problem he and the seller could be opening themselves up to a law suit.

Besides, you need an attorney to protect your best interests, that is their fiduciary responsibililty. Do not be penny wise and dollar foolish, make sure you get an attorney! If you are having an issue, you should seek the assistance of another attorney that you find yourself. There are thousands of them in Brooklyn and they are not hard to find! If you want you can even contact me and I can refer you to a good one.

In addition, if I can be of further assistance, feel free to contact me. Good luck!

Sincerely,
Mitchell S. Feldman

Mack McCoy answered:
Possibly, but - why?

If you feel that your agent hasn't created enough value for you for him to get paid, then perhaps you should get another one.

As a real estate broker, I feel the need to gently remind you that your financial limitations are not necessarily your broker's concern.

All the best,

Oggi Kashi answered:
They are holding a comp in hand at $750K for a like property. It's hard to deal with that unless you show newer sales. The comp is about 2 years old - have there been no re-sales for similar properties. If so you may have a point that there is no inventory and show the desirability of your property. Lack of inventory is a major driver of prices.

Also call all previously interested parties who looked at your home and tell them you have an all-cash in hand. See if you can drum up some competition.

Brest of luck,

Consult with your attorney, he/she can best advise as it relates to the specific property; did the seller(s) initiate the process for obtaining a c/o...without a c/o the lender more than likely will not lend, as the lack of permits and or c/o's will show in the title search; in order to obtain a clear title, the c/o issue needs to be addressed beforehand..... ... more

Michael Emery answered:
They shouldn't have bothered placing an offer on an 'As Is' property unless they were willing to do a FHA 203k fix up loan. If they're going with the straight FHA loan, it sounds like they won't be able to get past appraisal.

It's a shame they (and / or their agent) wasted your time. Any competent agent would've steered them away from a property that knowingly wouldn't pass FHA muster.

If they want it, tell them to get an FHA 203k loan or request a mutual cancellation of the purchase agreement.

They would already have accepted the Hardship.

Dear Trulia:

Here in Brooklyn (New York), the best ways would be the following:

1) Remove any and all clutter, junk, old cloths and the like. If you have any items you wanted to donate to charity, now is the time. Neaten and clean the entire house.

2) Your front door makes a vital first impression, if the door is old/ugly... put on a new one. In most cases you would only spend about $500.00.

3) Paint any rooms that need it and/or have not been painted in the last five years. Use bright neutral colors.

4) If there is a blatant repair that needs to be done take care of it before you start showing the house (i.e. leaky faucets, broken cabinets/windows, etc).

5) Make sure the landscaping if you have any is neat and pretty.

6) Optional but worth your while....If you have older hardwood/parquet floors it would be worth while to have them sanded and polyurethaned.

7) Price your home right when you put it up for sale. When you price the house right buyers will see the value, get excited and offer more money!

8) Make sure that your home is being marketed properly and agressively to make sure that potential buyers, real estate agents and the entire real estate community will be able to find it with ease!

With regard to home improvements, anything other than what I mentioned above may not be justified on a cost/added value basis. A consumers best bet would be to have a professional real estate agent in their local area visit the home and advise as to how the value can be increased!

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck!

If you are selling the property in Bensonhurst, for the best possible results you have to use the agent from Brooklyn MLS. 99% of all sales in Brooklyn are local buyers.

Barbara Ann Rogers answered:
You are much better off with a REBNY broker than you are with one who is only a member of the Brooklyn MLS. Every major NYC real estate firm belongs to REBNY, and by listing your property with a REBNY broker you will reach a far greater audience than you will with one who is only a member of the Brooklyn MLS (some firms are members of both).

Best of luck with your sale.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Consider interviewing in person a few local agents from different realty companies, then choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer. Ask what marketing strategies will be implemented; what plans will be put in place to coordinate meetings with buyers; what feedback/communication can you expect and with what frequency; will data be supplied to help establish a fair and marketable asking price; will buyers be pre-screened and required to have mortgage pre-approvals when submitting offers; what other services does the agency offer, etc.; choose your agent with care... ... more
