We have a program that allows for as low as a 600 score. I had one approved with less than 620 on Friday. The rules are tougher and the rates slightly higher but it can work for the right borrower. Please let me know if you need further information.

Tracey Simms answered:
Are you asking if 48 hour appointment notice would attract a potential buyer?
If you are, I would have to say NO..It is hard emough to show homes that require 24 hours notice. The less restrictive the showing policy is the more likely you are to find a buyer. There are so many nice homes listed right now and the competition is high, you do not want to do anything to turn buyers away. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
The variable is if the seller has been approved toeven complete a short sale and if the offer is at or just under market value. The offer should be clos eto that appraised value becuase if it is too low, it may get rejected. The things that affect time is if their are 1 mortgage or 2. Then if there is PMI (private mortgage insurance) involved which can hold up decisions. In the best world you would hear in 30 days or less, on average 60 days and as many as 90 if the package is not complete. ... more

Ask (either directly or through your agent if you have one) the name and contact information for the negotiator on the short sale. Get them to confirm to you in writing that the offer has been presented. ... more

This property is still listed as under contract and due to settle in a few days. Although all prices are negotiable, this is not a practice I am familiar with. Once there is a contract in place that has been executed by all parties, all parties have to agree to any changes.

First of all, welcome back to Maryland!
Secondly, some Real Estate companies charge a single fee is you are married, others charge individual fees, it all depends on the company. This fee in non-refundable and required to be paid to yet another company that runs the credit.
Agent that represents the owner in a transaction as part of his services has to make sure that the people that are looking to rent are in good standing with good credit. The monies for that are collected and paid to the company that acutally performs the credt.
I hope that this helps you somewhat.

Don Tepper answered:
Get a lawyer. I'm not a lawyer, so this isn't legal advice.

Meanwhile, read the listing agreement. You probably owe the commission. Why would her attempt to collect her commission, which she had earned, be unethical? Further, your agent had no contractual relationship with the buyer who "backed out"; her agreement was with you. And it sounds as if the buyers were willing to close on the agreed-upon date. So, it's not that they backed out, but that you were unable to close as scheduled. You needed an extension because you had someone living in your house.

So: Get a lawyer.

real estate md va dc answered:
Anybody can sue anyone for anything... i guess a better question is do they have a case against you... It sounds ridiculous that your own Agent wants to sue you. A sale did not occur. Agents get paid from sold homes, NOT time spent working for you. We dont know the full story so it's hard to give a thorough opinion. good luck ... more

Bridgette Kostek, REALTOR, Coldwell Banker M. M. Parrish answered:
I've been blogging for hours, and noticed that no one has gotten to your question yet. I think a bunch of REALTORs took the day off, and someone forget to tell me! I'm not familiar with your area; so, for now, if you haven’t done so already, you can start here on trulia. Simply go to the Real Estate Guides tab and type in a zip code or city/state. I'm sure a local REALTOR will pick up this question soon... Best of luck and happy hunting! ... more
