Sounds a little complicated for an open forum without some more specifics on your individual I'm going to punt, defer to a tax professional. The professional I would consult on this is a tax advisor who can advise you on tax law, capital gains, figuring your tax basis with specific information regarding trusts. Tax law can be very complicated. This is a situation where the price of a consultation is an investment in your future.

Good luck to you - and kudos for doing some homework on this first before leaping and just hoping for the best!

Here are some strategies I use.

• Focus on the real reasons buyers should buy your home.
• Don't forget "staging" and marketing.
•Use the Internet.
• Understand competitive pricing.
• Offer a bonus. Selling agents propose offering a bonus to the buyer's agent, on top of a conventional commission.

Please feel free to contact me.

Hello Gbatjr,

As a Realtor, I'm unable to give you legal advice. That is what you're in need of. I highly recommend that you speak with a Licensed Real Estate Attorney regarding this matter. Make sure that you bring all contracts (documentation) from the purchase of the home. This includes all Seller disclosures. An Attorney will be able to advise you from this point on. Good luck!

A title company can provide a copy but key info is often easier to obtain quickly and may suit your purposes faster and easier. What specific info do you need?

Well it all depends. The key is to determine the type of renovations one should concider.Some renovations will bring and justify the value and some will be a waste of time and/or money. Some buyers are looking for the perfect move in condition home and others are looking to do their own thing. I wrote a blog on this a short time ago. ... more

We are investor friendly in that we gladly prepare offers which are lowand reasonable. Offers which have zero chance of success are frustrating for all parties, especially the investor.

if you want to make low but reasonable offers in the San Fernando Valley I would be happy to help..

If your upside down on the mortgage and you want to sell the bank might let you do a short sale. You don't have to be in default but you will have to show some sort of hardship. Is this what you were referring to?

In order for the title to come back clean the seller(s) should pay, unless negotiated otherwise.

Glen Mitchell answered:
There could be numerous reasons. Seller may not want to be bothered with showings. Messy tenant. Tenant that doesn't cooperate, don't want tenant to know its for sale, on and on. If offer is written with contingnecies you get a chance to inspect and can say yes or no. Or maybe lower the price more, make these repairs etc. Since this approach turns many away typically price is going to be lower than if you opened it up to everyone. Possible chance for you to get a good deal.

Where did you obtain the new square footage total? And what did the original listing say? Did it say per owner or per tax record or per municipal records or estimated only?

Sara Mehrpouyan answered:
The lender will look at fair market value when you are attempting a short sale. So, the amount of the short sale price should be close to that. Are you short selling the home in Vegas? Who is the lender? Hopefully you're realtor will be able to negotiate it so that the lender will waive their right to deficiency judgment. Good luck.

Mack McCoy answered:
We have no idea whether the house is overpriced.

Based on recent performance, some short sales that start in July will not close in 2010; there is a premium to be paid for certainty.

I think that if you want to see these houses, then, you should.

It isn't so much about being a "comparable," as it is that fixers have problems that need to be fixed, and should sell for less than a similar home in move-in condition.

I hope this helps,

Hello Bill, your client would need to wait until the BK is cleared or she can obtain a letter for the lender. She has no legal risks unless she refinanced, or has a 2nd lien as far as recourse. Most lender with the exception of Bank of America will write in writing paymetn in full however. I am not an attorney, however I list and negotiate many short sells throughout the country and they are very similar. Best of luck. ... more

Hi Steph,

It normally takes a day for the old data to be taken down. Our service TREND updates within the hour most of the time. If the price is wrong on the third party sites..check back within a day or so. Call the listing service if the change is not posted by tomorrow. Would not want your seller to think it was your fault. Good luck with the sale!! ... more

Dorene Slavitz answered:
Dear Carlos,
If I understand your question correctly,you are asking if a property can be sold without acknowledgement and approval by all owners on the deed,. This is possible if Power of Attorney has been granted, or a quit claim has been signed by the minority "owner". There is also the possiblility that the additional person was never legally granted any ownership in the property to begin with. ... more
