Guy Gimenez answered:
You will need to seek legal counsel since no one here has read your original contract and what contract terms, if any, survived the closing. Take the deed, contract and all closing documents to a seasoned real estate attorney. I would suggest you do this soon since your credit will continue to be at risk and the home could ultimately move to foreclosure which time the lawsuits are likely to fly. ... more

Elwanna McEuen answered:
A market analysis and consultation with an experienced REALTOR for your area would be the first step so you don't spend money you may not recover. A fresh coat of paint, remove all the clutter, remove excessive family items, and update the kitchen/baths usually are the most return for your efforts. Without knowledge of your individual position all answers are strictly generic.

We would be glad to assist you more personally and our agents specialize in Fort Worth.

Ron Thomas answered:
We are seeing more of these every day;
The Lenders are getting more creative trying to help Buyers as well as Sellers:
FHA has a 203K loan which will piggy back the money for repairs and delay the payment for up to 6 months while the repairs are being made.
Fannie Mae has Homepath Renovation which will piggy-back up to $35,000 for repairs.

I suggest that YOU talk to some Lenders and have the information in place in advance. Your LISTING AGENT should help you on this.

Good luck and may God bless

Donnie Keller answered:
First have a Realtor take a look at it and evaluate the "as is" value. The Realtor should be able to determine the best strategy for you. There may small inexpensive finishes you can do that have a good return on investment.

You will take a pretty good hit if you try to sell as is. Your buyer prospects will be investors and individuals looking for a bargain.

There are several different strategies for you.

Darrell Hess answered:
It is really up to you. A good agent should be able to complete a decent CMA of your neighborhood and area the home is located in. That is a decent estimate of what your home may sell for. Now if you are going to be a FSBO or for sale by owner then I believe the more information you have the better off you are for the long haul. Not to mention it could be a good selling point if you list just under the appraised value as people will feel they are getting a deal. Power of numbers on the mind is an amazing thing.

Let me explain, with a true appraisal from a state certified a appraiser will give you a heads up for how much your home is worth or rather its value. It may or may not find the extra Sq ft you are referring to. Keep in mind that the only sq ft that can be included is those that are considered habitable. That said, the value found will prevent any issues later with financing contingencies with a buyer offering a price that is higher then its appraised value. When that happens the buyer can walk away or they can pay the difference as lenders do not like lending money on things that are not worth a % of the loan amount.

So in my opinion the 300-500 dollars spent on the appraisal is money well spent as it provides you with more knowledge about the soon to be future of events regarding your home sale.

Corrin Martinelli answered:
Hi Cindy,
It is a buyers market out there, which makes things a lot harder on the sellers, especially in saturated areas. If you are serious about selling, make sure your home is priced accordingly. Make sure your home shows like a model home for all showings. Clean, light, and bright! Make sure your Realtor is doing everything they can to get your home exposure and if you do not have a Realtor get one! It makes a difference. Think about are adding Buyer Incentives to attract buyers to your home instead of your neighbors.
Good Luck!
