No, because the bank is not the seller. Sometimes the Realtor will submit multiple accepted offers if the bank had not approved prior offers.

This gets into the LEGAL area of advice;
Reators do not give Legal advice, we leave that to lawyers.

If your LANDLORD is the owner of the property, and there is a Trustee sale scheduled for April 17th, then he is not paying his mortgage to the Bank and they are foreclosing.
If the sale date is April 17th, it is getting pretty late for him to try to save the place.
If the Bank does Foreclose, you will have about 30 days after the Trustee Sale unless you have a longer term lease.

good luck and may God bless

Depends. Whatever it's worth.

Recognize, too, that the value of appraisals varies. Appraisals when you actually buy a home can be fairly accurate. Appraisals (especially a few years ago) when people were refinancing were pure garbage.

Beyond that, of course, an appraisal 4 years old is worthless. But you're aware of that, and are asking how much to adjust that number up or down. That depends on general market conditions in your area. That also depends on whether the condition of your home has gone up or down, and whether anything has occurred in the immediate neighborhood that would affect home prices.

You've got two options. First, you can ask a Realtor to run a CMA (competitive market analysis) on your home. That will be free. Second, you can pay an appraiser to do a new appraisal. The cost for that might be--roughly--$300-$400. I'd suggest you pursue the first option, but it's entirely your choice.

Hope that helps.

Rather than worrying about who sold the most homes, consider interviewing in person a few agents from different realty comapnies then choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer; keep in mind that in today's market pricing and marketing that maximizes exposure are paramount; if pricing isn't competitive, it doesn't matter who the agent is.... ... more

Most realtors will do a market analysis for no charge, in the hopes of getting the chance to list your property for sale. If you really have no intention of selling, realtors still might do it as a courtesy, but you should probably mention that in advance. Good Luck! ... more

Hi Bridgerguidedotcom,

Contact a Realtor in your area and ask them to do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) using Sold comparables within 1 mile of your home (the closer, the better). They should use properties that have sold within the last 3 months.
