Hi Rosie,
Without seeing the property and knowing the condition etc. it is hard to say what the comps would be. If you like you can contact me so we can set up a time when we can get together at the property. I would be more than happy to give you a free cma at that time.

Your agent and or attorney can best advise--not knowing the condition of the property not an easy question to answer. Be mindful that if financing is involved, the lender may require certain things be done--again your agent and or attorney can best advise. ... more

Hello Jenn,

When a bank agrees to do a short sale, the bank who holds the mortgage will receive all proceeds and probably won't want to pay off any secondary lien holder but more often than not if the Realtor knows what they are doing, they can get the bank to agree to give the other lien holder something, even if it's just a thousand dollars. The other lien holder can choose to take what they are offered or risk getting nothing.

There is also something called a deficiency judgment. What that means is that after the short sale there is not enough to pay off the bank, the bank will ask the home owner to sign something stating that the home owner will be responsible to pay back the remaining balance over a period of time.

Are you involved in a short sale now or feel that you might want to go one?

Hi, Benign15.

You could always have a RE agent assist you as a Transaction Licensee. It would most likely be cheaper than a lawyer and you wouldn't have to pay the full commission.

If you need any assistance at all, give me a shout at

All the best.

That would be a question for a real estate attorney in your area. Your choices without him wanting to buy it, are subject to your state law but could be selling your share and teh rights that go with it to someone who may want it, i dont know how many buyers would not want a controlling interest or you could seek legal advice on forcing your brother to sell the property and splitting the net p[roceeds by each ones percentages. ... more

Andrew Himes answered:
FHA will NOT allow any secondary financing. Unfortunately with FHA appraisals you are stuck with them for 6 months. You will not be able to sell the property to a buyer using an FHA loan for any more than 132,000 for 6 months. You can however sell to a conventional buyer and they can have a new appraisal done on the property. I have had this happen to my sellers numerous time over the last 12-18 months. The appraisal process has gone from one end of the spectrum (3-5 years ago appraisers were just giving whatever value buyers were willing to pay) to the other end where we are currently at (lenders checking and triple checking to verify the appraisers work). It is a tough situation but if both buyers you have lined up are FHA buyers you are in a tough spot right now, usless they are able to come up with the additional down payment to use a conventional mortgage product.

Barbara Ascolese answered:
I'm sure this is extremely frustrating to you. There is no good excuse for your agent neglecting to respond to your request. I would call the broker of record for his office and request an unconditional release if you believe the agent has not done his job. If the broker will agree to an unconditional release, then you will not be responsible for a sale that occurs after that, unless it is to a buyer who was introduced to your property prior to the release. If an entirely new buyer turns up after the unconditional release, then no commission is due the agent. The sixty days you refer to is, I believe, the period of time that he is protected in case of a buyer turning up for whom he was the procuring cause. If you cannot obtain an unconditional release you are obligated to the agent and brokerage for commission in the event of a sale on your property that goes to closing.. If you are completely dissatisfied with the representation you are receiving you may insist that your house no longer be shown and just wait until the listing expires. You may then choose to represent yourselves. However, having said that, I think it would be better to go into the office, sit down with the agent and his broker and try to resolve any issues so that you may receive better service. NAR statistics show that sellers represented by realtors net more money. You also have the opportunity at the end of the current listing term to interview other agents. Although you are attorneys, it is still the wiser choice, in my opinion, to be represented by a real estate professional. ... more
