Just what is "your current situation". If you have never purchased a home before, it would be wise to have someone help you find a property and guide you through the process and possible pitfalls. If your situation is related to your ability to get financing, then it may be beneficial to look at carry back or private financing sources, but that doesn't relate to the search for a home. To get the best answer, you need to provide more information. If you don't want to do that publicly, then you should contact an agent or lender to provide information to help you make an informed decision. ... more

You might take the APN down to the Assessors Office and ask them.
I wouldn't think that that was confidential information.

You should research those questions - Google is your friend. You should contact the local police departments in the areas of interest to determine what's happening on a granular, neighborhood level. No real estate agent can help you with this - it's your responsibility to do the due diligence. ... more

Steffy Hristova answered:
Your agent would probably go through the offer price and terms with you. If you made an offer, your offer has a price. After your inspections, if you have discovered that the cost of repairs is higher than what you would like to accept, you can request one of 3 things: (1)the seller to complete the repairs, (2) cancel and receive your earnest money back or (3)accept the property without the repairs. ... more

It is always a good idea to shop around for rates and terms. Keep in mind when you do it show each inquiry that each institution has done for you regarding pulling your information if you are talking about a loan. ... more

Debi - the photos are provided by the listing Realtor. Some, clearly, are better than others. The same applies to the description. Some understand spellcheck, and some even understand grammar (no, not the old lady who owns the house). ... more

I usually give until the following day at 5pm. Long enough for them to run numbers and sleep on it, but short enough that they don't have much time to negotiate with another buyer!

Trulia is not intended to be the adjacent step to making an offer;
The IDEA is that you will contact a Realtor and have them take you through the process.
Your Realtor can filter out, and prepare a CMA for your Short List.

Good luck and may God bless

Buy Phoenix,

That is an excellent question. In the absence of any specific instructions from you to your agent, an agent does NOT have any duty or obligation to present offers once you have accepted and signed a contract. However, if you have instructed your agent to continue presenting offers, then he must follow your instructions. If he has not followed your instructions, he or she may be in violation of NAR's Code of Ethics as well as Arizona statute.

A good agent will always marketing a property, even when under contract, and will encourage submission of backup offers.
