Oh my G....!

"Realtor doesn't have much experience. Any advice besides hiring a real estate attorney? Anyone have a story "

Do not take a new Realtor® to a short. At the poinof bankruptcy you should have bailed and let them know you would be back if they were able to get it released. ... more

What you need to do is to speak with a Lender/Loan Officer. There as some programs for First Time Buyers, however those programs do have Income Limits. Talking with a Lender/Loan Officer that knows the Strongville area would be the best thing for you to do.

With that said, my offices are in Parma Heights. Just a stones throw from Strongsville. Check my profile page and call me if you want.

Hello Russ, Don't you love Trulia and the ability to list your home for free? If I were you I would have a rent application at the ready. You probably would want to have the prospective tenant furnish you with a credit report and possibly a background check. Since water and sewer run "with your home" these are utilities you may not be able to put in tenants name and will have to decide how you want to deal with this. Most real estate companies have an "offer to lease" then owner to furnish a final lease acceptable to both both parties. I just secured a 3 year lease for a happy owner who is very happy to have this 3 year lease with a credit worthy tenant so they can further "chew"down the mortgage before they sell. ... more

Danny Calvert answered:
It really comes down to whether they seller is ready to deal or not. Many times the seller will reduce the list price and then if you submit an offer shortly after they do they will wait and see what kid of action they get from the price reduction before they will accept and offer the is more the 10% below the list price. If you have a realtor working with you he can do some homework to get a better idea of what they are looking for. Also if you are placing bids as an investor during the first look period you are wasting your time. Feel free to contact me with any other questions.

Ron Thomas answered:
The Bank will only finance 80% of the Appraised Value;
$202,000 x 80% = $161,600

You can either accept that,
or find a new Lender and start all over.

Some say that you can contest the Appraisal, but that doesn't hold much promise. ... more

Jennifer R. Burke answered:
The problem we are seeing with 'all electric homes' from Buyers who do their research is that there is a remote possibility that the electric company may discontinue the discount given to these types of homes. I have had buyers in the past two years purchase these types of homes in the area and while that has been their concern, they have considered the cost savings also. ... more

Alex & Carlos Team Aguilar answered:
Your better off looking for preservation companies and general contractors who are approved to work for banks. Asset management companies are rarely going to deal with you on the local level. It's too time consuming for them. They want 1 contact and that contact will handle a region of the United States. That contact will deal with the pain of finding all of the local contractors, vendors to do the work. You want to find that 1 contact they deal with and get approved to work with them.

The article written below talks about contractors looking for business.

Consider visiting local realty offices and let them know about your company and the services offered, possibly leave some flyers behind--some of the larger offices do have regular staff meetings, consider asking the broker owner and or office manger if you can speak for a few minutes at one of those meetings, etc. ... more

You say they are PRICING their homes at 2007 prices.

Are the homes SELLING for those prices?

In general, they are worth what they are currently Selling for, not what people are asking for them.

Best wishes to you,

No, there's usually plenty of room. If anyone asks, your an agent representing a client for a similar home. No one should care esp. if you ask for their card for future reference!!

Matt Hayes answered:
Whether it's a good time to sell is determined by your motivation. Why do you want to sell? Where do you want to go next? What are the reasons that your home is not for you anymore?

Be honest with yourself and find out what works for you!
