Good Afternoon Andrew,
You are asking a great question. Right now generally speaking rates are in the mid to upper 3's. If you are an investor they will be higher. Always remember though that financing is based on a number of factors and you will need to put in an application with a lender to get a rate quote based on your circumstances. Please feel free to contact me if you would like some referrals to lenders in the area.

Foreclosures and short sales are going to be with us for quite a while. They have definitely affected the values of real estate across the board. Unfortunately, our economy will not improve without an improvement in the real estate industry and real estate is unlikely to improve until we see less of these "distress" properties. ... more

Go to the county where your deed is recorded and ask them, or call a title company and see if you can con them out of a free title search and they would be able to tell you, or call a company name Dale Property Services (google them) and ask them. I can tell you if you live in a newer large development with a bunch of tract homes the chances are very slim but if you live in a more established area its very possible. I own 14 properties and have recieved a about $10,000 this year in lease bonuses so it is possible. Best of luck to you and let me know if there is anything else you need.

I'm not sure I understand. Are you asking if your home should be listed under its: market value, appraised value or assessed value?

You need to speak with a local Realtor in your community to provide you a specific, informative and useful answer. Many Realtors may be willing to provide you a free or low cost comparative market analysis (CMA) to help you determine the market value of your home, market your home and be your representative in the sale of your home. Please read the other questions on selling your home yourself (FSBO) or listing ith a Realtor. Interview a few to make an informed decision. As I work for Coldwell Banker, I would recommend them, but you need to make your own mind by listing your priorities in selling your home. ... more

Sylvia Barry, MAS,CIPS,SRES answered:
I am not sure how your agent can set a price without your agreeing to the price. The house is yours and you have to sign the agreement. I assume your agent did a comparable analysis for you comparing your house to like properties and explained how he/she priced the house?

Is the difference in the house only in square footage? Not saying your house is this way, but are there differences in the location of the houses (freeway vs. open space), condition of the house (complete remodel vs needing update or repairs?), neighborhood (desirable vs not), demographics around the neighborhood? floor plan of the house (sometimes some floor plan is very difficult to negotiate - one of the houses on an extremely desirable area is defined as tear-down because the house has strange floor plans). The lot location and condition (level vs slope?) or combination of several?

Again, I am saying any of the above applies to your house, i am just trying to point out that square footage is not everything when we price houses. Assuming he is not aiming for a quick sale, he should be able to explan his reasons to you until you are satisfied. .

If you still do not agree, then you can ask him to change the list price because the house is yours. Just make sure you price the house fairly and correctly. If you overprice your house, it can be difficult to sell - stay ahead of the curve is a good plan in this market.

Good Luck,
