NO, Trulia is not for FSBO...try Zillow or craigslist...or better yet...hire a Realtor.

Anita McEvoy answered:
The acceptance time depends on a lot of factors. The buyer may have to check with the lender to see if they can qualify for a higher loan, the buyer or seller may be out of town and the agent cannot reach them. I would say that under normal conditions 3 days would be acceptable. ... more

Tom Sloyan answered:
I would recommend that you not be there. Most buyers feel uncomfortable when the seller is around and might not let the agent know what they like or dislike about the home. This is important for the seller's agent, so they can share with their seller's what buyers are saying about the home. ... more

Sorry, don't understand the question completely. What are you as the buyer attempting to accomplish, purchase the house after it was canceled? First step is to talk it over with your agent/broker. ... more

Tina Lam answered:
Sounds like your buyer had cold feet. If the buyer cancelled within the inspection contingency period, then his agent will have to send over a cancellation form to you. Once you sign and send it over, escrow will refund back any deposits the buyer had made and you can sell the home to anybody else. ... more

It's a negotiated rate, Mark. And, sometimes there is also a fee that some companies charge.

Yes guy, many agents hold open house in Tucson. It's a great way to get exposure for the property since many buyers are just out driving neighborhoods on the weekends and if the house is open they will stop in.

You can, but you may be opening yourself up to a potential legal fight. I would consult a real estate lawyer prior to making that decision.

Good luck.

Jeff Zimet answered:
In the most simple terms..fresh, clean and well maintained properties usually sell quicker and at a higher price. I would be happy to stop by your place and offer some tips on preparing your property for the market. I have been assisting home sellers in the Tucson area since 1988. Every home is different. Some improvements can be unnecessary and a waste of time and money. ... more

Andrea Bedard answered:
Hi Morales, a contract is a legally binding document. You want to read through it carefully and consult an attorney to see what options, if any, you have. Please also keep in mind that the buyer has already invested emotionally and, depending on what stage of the contract you are in, financially. Best of luck. ... more

Hello Glrooney

For property manager I can highly recommend:
Daniel Reichardt GRI,CNE, Designated Broker
Genesis Real Estate & Management.
Cell(520)-390-1270 Email..

When you are ready to start viewing properties, please consider getting pre-approved first. In fact, not a bad idea to do that now as they can show you what to work on, so that you can own a home in the future. Once you are pre-approved give me a call when you are ready & we can start looking for the right house for you.

Best of luck.

Donna Moulton answered:
I don't know if any investors want to buy delinquent notes, but I know that Jim Hogan does buy notes. If he doesn't want it, maybe he can tell you who would. He owns Hogan School of Real Estate.

If an investor is taking a problematic note off your hands, you need to realize you are not going to get all the money that's coming to you. You have to give the investor an incentive to deal with your delinquent buyer. The investor, if you find one, will buy the loan from you at a discount.

Best of luck.

Jillian Skinner answered:
Well, in my opinion, in every business there are some people who will work harder than others. That's just life. So, if your agent is only putting a sign in the front yard, you're right, do it yourself. Again, all of this is my opinion. There should be a huge number of high quality photos of the property on the MLS. The company that I work for automatically adds the listing to numerous other websites as well. Most homes are found through the local MLS, but description and photos are what makes a person want to look at the house. An agent should also have some sense of home staging and advise you on this.

Regarding finding the homes, agents should be previewing homes for you. Of course everyone has different personalities and an agent should try and work with the personality type of the client. Some of my clients want me to preview and pretty much hand-pick the house for them, which I am more than happy to do and I've spent hours and hours previewing homes for clients. Others want to have more control of the situation and want to find the home on their own, have me show it to them, and then have me take care of the paperwork.

It's not black and white, so I hope my answers help!

Have a great day!

Mack McCoy answered:
It depends on what kind of friends you have, actually.

If you're like me, and your friends are people that you admire, that you feel honored to have in your life - then you';d only hope that they'd deign to serve you in a professional relationship.

Some people have friends whose bonds are somewhat less flattering. If your real estate friend likes you because you're the designated driver and bail bondswoman, then, well, yeah - I might look elsewhere, too!

It really comes down to what you think of that professional and your relationship. We can't advise you. Although I'll tell you - it bites to have a friend decide to pay another person thousands of dollars to do your job because "it's uncomfortable." As if losing on out several thousand dollars in professional fees isn't uncomfortable.

All the best,

Michael Emery answered:
They won't pursue a judgment on the balance if you get it in writing that the $100,000 satisfies their lien in full. This would be a part of negotiating the short sale to the satisfaction of both lenders. If you don't receive satisfaction, it's possible they could sue for the balance. ... more
