If you know who the listing agent is then you are in a good position since the bank will get the agent to do some ground work. They will be asked to value the house, get estimates, clean it and do other things needed. The agent could make a suggestion to the bank to allow your offer to be heard or to suggest the bank sell it as is and then you could make an offer. It would seem likely the bank would still allow others a time to make offers too, they will be curious to see if others out bid you. ... more

Due to newer privacy laws, individuals can no longer inquire about a particular property's utility costs with the various utility providers. That information needs to come from the property owners. The listing agent or your buyer's agent should be able to secure that information on your behalf. ... more

Your best bet is to meet with a local and trusted loan officer who can prequailify you at no cost and after looking at your credit and financials let you know if there is a mortgage program you quailify for. The poorer the credit the more you may need to put down. the only way to tell is to meet a loan officer though. ... more

you want to know if you can cancel the sale AFTER the closing?

Well, I know I am in NJ, not Ohio......but I am going to take a guess that even in Ohio - once you close - the house is yours! ... more

Tammy Murphy answered:
This is negotiable - shoule be written as part of the contract. Typically you may take possession AT closing (if the property is already vacant or the seller is moving out already.) However, some seller's may need to live in the house until the closing takes place and then request 2-5 days for the move process. Again - this is completely and totally up to what the parties agree to in the contract. I will say, if you as the "seller" keep possession past closing - the "buyer" is paying on the home and may want / request "RENT" for the time the seller is there after closing. This should also be in writing. The issues of liability are a big concern for both the buyer and the seller in this event - and it needs to be clear as to who has what responsibility. (The same would also be true on the reverse - say a buyer wants to take possession or move-in before the closing happens...) ... more

James Gordon ABR SFR SRS answered:
You need to contact a Realtor® that works with a HUD registered broker as soon as you can. The first step would be to print off and review the HUD property disclosure. The next step is to view the home. I would put in a bid before a home inspection because as an owner occupant if omething comes up that was not disclosed you do have an out.
Normally when I view HUD homes with my clients the properties are in no condition to live in while doing an ongoing live in rehab.

Don Brenneman answered:
House hunter, as with most every question, the answer here really is.... "it depends". The rule of thumb for a good property with good value is to set the home price at 3% above the expected selling price and expect the first offer to be around 5% of the asking and to settle in between the 2 prices. When you have a home or client dealing with some other extraneous issues you may want to use a different approach., You may try to list at price where you expect the first offer to be somewhere around 10% below asking and settle around 5% below the original asking price. Of course, the better prepared and informed you and your agent are, the more effectively you can price the home and then more importantly, negotiate the final sell price. Finally, if you do not enjoy negotiating or not much of a risk taker, this can be a somewhat challenging process. So get with a great agent and let them do the heavy lifting for you. ... more

It sounds like the only way you could be in this position is that you bought the house without a Buyer's Agent and without INSPECTIONS!

Why did you do that? Did you save a lot of money?

I am not a lawyer and I will not and can not give you legal advice; but,
You probably bought yourself some trouble.

Good luck and may God bless
