Usually the lease says you can show the house with reasonable notice. If the lease isn't up anytime soon the might have to wait until its up and notify buyers of when it's up.

Great question!

Ideally a Seller would be prudent to hire their own appraiser and then "shop" for a Realtor based on his/her success and not be skewed by a possibly erroneous opinion of value. I've actually gotten sellers to go ahead and pay for an appraisal to determine their asking price and it has worked very well. It's a great way for a Seller to get a "reality" check. It may almost be worth the expense for a listing agent to pay for the appraisal upfront but also not select the appraiser so there is no suspicion of the agent selecting a certain appraiser to come it at a lower value to allow an easy sale.

All the best,

Absolutely yes! You should recoup most of your investment and cut the market time drastically. Buyers are less and less wanting to come in and start spending money. in addition, the home will smell fresher and updated. Be sure to choose a very nuetral biege or tan so that it goes with most any decor. Good Luck! ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
If were a homeowner, and you were behind on your payments; you could ask the Bank to let you sell the house for less than you owe them for it: Thus, the name Short Sale.

It takes a lot longer than a Foreclosure Sale, allows you to live in the house until it is sold, and hurts your Credit Rating less.

As a Buyer, you can pick up some good buys; you just have to be prepared to wait a long, long time for the deal to go thru.

In both cases, the deals are done through Realtors; representing the Bank and representing YOU.

For more information, talk to a Realtor.

Good luck and may God bless

Don Tepper answered:
Look at the listings.

Are they sales from within the past 6 months? And, ideally, 3 months?

Are they within 1/4 mile of the subject property? Or within the same community?

Are the property sizes--number of bedrooms and baths--the same or similar? (If similar, are those values adjusted upward or downward to make them comparable to the given property?)

Are the ages of the properties about the same?

Are there any other factors that would affect the values of the properties? For example, is one close to a major highway, and the other isn't? One has a boat dock and the other doesn't? One is on a 2/3 acre lot and the other is on a 1/5 acre lot?

So, basically, you want to make sure that the comps are as similar as possible to a given property. And if they're not, you want to make sure that the comps have been adjusted to reflect those differences.

Hope that helps.

Sally Grenier answered:
There are many different factors involved. What is the price of the home? Whose closing costs are you referring to (seller or buyer or both)? A buyer can expect to pay between 2-3% of the purchase price in closing costs. (costs are higher if the buyer is getting mortgage).

As a seller, you will have Realtor's fees (if you use one) which is negotiable and can range anywhere from 4%-6%, title insurance, recording fees, and possibly other fees depending on your area. For example some states require attorneys, while states like CO don't.

Good Morning,

You will have to check with your CPA or Attorney, but you received the funds, used them and now you have to pay it back if you sell it. That was the intent of the law.
Good Luck,.

For an FHA appraiser to pass your well, it must be at least 50 feet from your septic tank and at least 100 feet from the septic tank's drain field. In addition, the well cannot be within 10 feet of your property line. I have a call in to an appraiser, and will let you know what she says.

Phil Rotondo answered:
Every owner that has their property listed has their own motivation to sell; and this may be an integral part of the equation. There is a "range" on comparable pricing; and a percentage of the seller pool might be interested in listing and selling quickly......thus the aggressively priced properties.
In addition, you partially answered your own question. The owner (in conjunction with the Realtor) was able to create urgency in their listing and was able to obtain an offer higher than if it were listed at the comparable price.

I would consult with your attorney, but since it is a short sale, I would suggest holding money in escrow to cover the cost of damages. Remember that you are dealing with not only the seller, but also the bank so both must approve any changes. ... more
