Only if you are willing to risk having both offers accepted at the same time and end up either buying 2 homes or being in breach of contract on one of the homes which can result in legal issues, fines and losing your earnest money ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
First of all, your Realtor should be able to help you; you are using a Realtor?

Secondly; why put so much emphasis on the SALES HISTORY?
We know that the last 5 years have been a roller-coaster.
Let's hope that the last 5 years is not a portent to the next five!

I am assuming you are talking about the condos. There is a small pocket of them. I think there is one or two.

Patricia,
The town homes are 2 story units and do not have basements. I thought you didn't want to pay a monthly HOA. Give me a call so that you are getting the right types of properties.

John,
Hard to know without all the facts. What you must know is that the seller had to see your offers and the others and they are the only one who can decide which offer to accept.
Price is typically the biggest factor, but not always. I've had buyers win competitive bid scenarios because we presented a more compelling story that appealed to the seller. Sometimes being easy to deal with makes up for money. I can imagine several possibilities but only the agent and sellers know for sure.

I would think 20% is a reasonable discount, so $40,000 off 199,999 equals %160,000. If you dont hear back in a week, send another offer at $165,000. That will get someone's attention, and hopefuly a counter offer

Ben Edsall answered:
Michael,

I'm not sure I understand the question. Firstly if you owe 151K and similar homes are selling for 132K you will likely either have to stay there until you either build some equity or the market improves. If you are under-water and unable to continue making the payments then you may want to look at negotiating a short-sale with your lender.

It is not likely that anyone will want to trade your property for another one with your negative equity. Your situation is not unique; in fact it has become somewhat the norm today. If you do have to do a short-sale, deed in lieu or foreclosure you will not likely be buying another home for many years.

Consider working with an agent of your own; he she can provide you with suitable listings, keep you updated as new listings arrive on the market, provide necessary information, schedule showings, etc.; if purchasing with a mortgage, be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously... ... more

Spirit Messingham answered:
This is a tougher one and might need to speak with current home owners that live in the area. Is there a park close by, could ask some other parents there. Here in Tucson, AZ I have all clients review and sign the Buyers Advisory, in which contains a wealth of information on where to view current school statistics, crime rates, and etc.

That might be one other option, find out about the local schools, which one you would be sending your kids too based on the homes location and ask the school too about it. Finally, if you have not, please consider working with a local agent or Realtor as they should have other sources of information for you to consider as well.

Best of luck.

Alicia Clark - THE HOLT TEAM answered:
some wood flooring is usually good, make sure bathroom &kitchen are in top condition, paint neutral color through out (light beige or sand color is usually a winner), and make sure all nail pops, baseboards CLEAN and painted if necessary, etc are taken care of. Also, take down personal photos, get rid of (or store) furniture and decorations that make rooms look crowded. Wall decor should be "just enough" and no themes.

These are just basic things that will go along way. I can also send you a list of things if you send me your email address. It is a great time to sell b/c it's a great time to buy. Listing in February is a good idea, because all the shoppers that want to move in spring will start coming out of the cracks.

Good luck!

Monir Mamoun answered:
If you signed an exclusive right to sell agreement, then you will probably have to abide by that. The agent will be representing you in the sale process and will earn their commission there.

Now if you really want to fight it -- check with an attorney. You MAY have a right of recission on the agreement you signed with the real estate agent.

Another option -- is talk with your agent -- actually, the employing broker. Tell them this was an earlier prospect and show them some proof of contact. Ask them to drop their commission in half as result. This way you can get the benefit of representation at a better price.

Britton Brown answered:
Assumption of an FHA-insured mortgage is a servicing function where the responsibility of the mortgage is acquired by another person through either Simple or Creditworthiness process. Individuals may assume mortgages originated prior to December 1, 1986, by utilizing the "Simple Assumption" process. For those mortgages originated on December 1, 1986 and thereafter, HUD placed certain restrictions on the assumption of those FHA-insured mortgages and those mortgages have to go through the Creditworthiness Assumption process. Please refer to the Assumption Chart for 1) Mortgage Original Closing Date, 2) Owner-Occupancy Requirement, and/or 3) Investor Limitation. (You can find it at www.hud.gov/utilities/intercept.cfm?/offices/hsg/sfh/nsc/rep/asmchart.pdf. (Just copy and paste in your tool bar.))
The bottom line is that this is not as easy as it sounds and there are a lot of issues to contend with especially with an FHA. Whatever you do, do not leave that property! FHA will automatically say you abandoned the home and that will disqualify you for all the options you may have access too.
