I assume this is a bank owned property. The listing Realtor is responsible for pricing the property, noting condition, and presenting offers to the asset manager. The presumption is the home has been priced with the condition of the home in mind.

If the property has been listed for 30 days, chances are they will reduce maybe 10 percent unless you can present a compelling case to the listing agent as to why the property isn't worth it. But chances are the listing agent believes they have properly priced the property with condition in mind.

All offers must be submitted to the seller in a timely manner unless the seller has specifically stated that certain types of offers will be refused and the agent should not submit them.

If the agent has concerns about ti passing FHA guidelines I would be concerned about it too. FHA 203(k) is a different story though.

If a new owner purchasers the property and offers it for rent, it could happen. However, it is unlikely. Time factors would be against you. If the home is in process of foreclosure or sheriff's sale, you should do everything possible to redeem your loan or renegotiate. If you wish to have more information regarding your options in your particular situation, call me at 612=986-4105. I have experience in working with lenders and I am a mortgage manager. Liz ... more

If the bank owned house has been on the market more than 2 weeks and hasn't sold than it isn't worth $300k more in today's market. Will it be worth it again? Yes, some day but who knows when.

The advice you are looking for requires a lot more discussion and specificity than you will be able to get here. It all depends on the specifics of your situation.

If you already have the older kind of parquet that is made up of pieces of hardwood flooring and placed in a pattern individually, that should be no problem. However, if it is some sort of laminant, it might not be as good because you can't sand and refinish a laminant floor like you can the older hardwood floors.

If you are thinking of replacing a floor and putting in parquet, just make sure it matches the decor of the rest of the home. Sometimes newer colors and textures look a bit out of place in an older home. Best to go with the flow when you can.

Living rooms are out! Most people are using their "sitting room/living rooms" as home offices/library and installing glass french doors. Another possible use that some of my younger clients have used living rooms for is a 'man cave' type of room with a bar, leather chairs, flat screen tv and if it's large enough, a poker/texas hold'em table. ... more

Typically properties don't sell from an open house. Agents use open houses to try and find new buyers.
