If your looking to buy a house you should get in touch with a local agent asap. I could refer you to a top buyers agent working in your area. Send me your contact information to and I can set you up with an agent through my company.

If you are talking about a private home inspection it's usually the responsibility of the buyer to pay for their own inspection. If you're talking about a required City inspection I would assume it's the sellers responsibility. This can be a negotiable item.

Good Luck,

Hi there Jan,

Janice, so many of us are dealing with a difficult selling market. And even creative outlandish marketing and ideas seem to leave us scratching our heads. If you are choosing to use a Realtor to list your property - interview them. You want an agent that will sell his/herself to you! Working with a Realtor, you have access to a market analysis including the most recent sales in your area. This will give you information on what price to list for the quickest sale possible. The multiple listing service gives your property lots of exposure to all the brokers and agents in the area. Make sure your Realtor company has a good marketing plan to get your property exposure.

If you are planning on selling your home on your own, you are going to have to work hard to get it advertised. Put in local papers, Craig's list, websites like and advertise open houses. It would also be helpful to work with a Realtor for a commission portion to encourage them to bring you a buyer.

Price it well and advertise alot! And ask opinions from family and friends on curb appeal. They may be able to provide a few tips to get some buyers in the door!

The 'deadline' for acceptance should have been stated in your purchase contract/offer. If it is a short sale, the seller should have at least accepted but most likely the lender(s) wouldn't have yet. Check your offer for when your offer expired. If it's expired, the seller may have accepted another offer?

You should get with an agent in your area as they can help you find a rental home. I'm sure one in your area will post a response here shortly.

Tracey Martin answered:
The first thing you need to do is check your modification agreement to see if it contains any restrictions for selling your home and buying another home. If there are no restrictions, then you need to meet with a good lender. I know that a modification causes a credit ding. A lender can look at your particular situation to see if you qualify. A lender would be able to tell you if FHA or Fannie Mae have any restrictions in their guidelines for borrowers who modified their loan, as well. Good luck. ... more
