Suzanne,
You can call any agent to set a viewing time. If it's not their listing they will contact the agency who has the listing and show you the property. The agent who shows you the home should explain agency prior to your showings. That is, who they represent. Also with any person listed here on Trulia you can check their personal profile to see if it's a good fit for you prior to contacting them.

All the best,
Gary Geer

Spanish Hills is ome of the most desirable areas in Camarillo. I think that this will be an excellent investment and I think you will be very happy in this area. It is hard probably to gauge value for an area far away from your own for sure. Ventura county offers excellent resources and, in my opinion, a better, simpler lifestyle than the valley and greater LA area. The weather in Camarillo is so much more comfortable than Calabasas too. Many homeowners rarely turn on their air conditioning in the Summer.

There is a lifestyle choice to consider. If you will be fully making the transition to living in Ventura County, you will probably find it to be very enjoyable but if you will still be

Hello C.,


Are you the buyer or the seller/ You stated your agent as Listing Agent. I wonder if your agent acts as dual agent for the transaction. For the record, if you are the buyer and the seller delivers the writen notice of approval from the lender and you actually receive it and sign on the document. Then 3 business days from the date you receive the notice from the seller, your agent has to deliver the check for the earnest money to deposit to preescrow account the title company. In the shortsale addendum your agent must check the box in the section 2 which states the " Buyer's deposit check shall be held uncashed until the Day After the Seller delivers to Buyer a written notice of Short Sale Lender's consent" Please notice the capital letters being used in the sentence to let you know that really emphasizes the matter has to be take in greatly consideration in your written offer to purchase a shortsale property. If you have more question please feel free to contact me so I can answer your question. Good luck ... more

Yes.

Generally, location is a very good thing.

The drawback sometimes is traffic congestion and noise.

But, generally, the closer you are to transportation (highways, subways, bus routes), shopping (both food and other things), entertainment, and so on, the higher a property's value. As I mentioned, sometimes the trade-off for location is traffic congestion and noise. If a home backs up to a major highway, that's not so good. If it's right across from a school, and you'll have school buses jamming the roads for hours every day--along with lots of screaming kids--that's not so good. If you're right at the end of an airport runway, that's not so good.

You get the idea.

But if you can balance convenience and location with the quiet and security that most people want, that's a good thing.

Hope that helps.

Marzzy,
I would recommend that you set up a face-to-face meeting with your agent and their Broker. You need to have answers based on the signed contract, not on heresay. Obviously, you are are not pleased with the current status of your purchase, but I assume you are still within your time-frames to cancel the contract (and escrow) and receive a refund of your earnest money deposit. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
You may still wish to be more specific--keep in mind that short sales are by no means fast sales unless pre-approved by the lender from the very beginning--the seller can accept whatever offer he/she wants, but the lender decides to accept, reject or at times counter offer--what is your agent and or attorney suggesting--and as your previous question stated who is fleecing you. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
If you are not satisfied with the services rendered by your agent, contact the broker owner of the realty company and explain your concerns--You should not have to pay any up front money for any negotiator--if a negotiator is used, he/she can get paid at closing from the proceeds of the sale. ... more

Joseph Domino answered:
You need to provide more details. How are you being fleeced? Who is fleecing you?

It is very difficult to renegotiate after you have a contract, but canceling may be your best option. Also, sometimes the threat of cancellation can reopen negotiation. Your agent should be able to help in this regard that is their job. ... more

What is the situation of you pulling out of your contract? Do you have anymore outs like Inspection or Loan Conditions? Earnest money is returnable if you back out appropriately.

Marzzy,

The possibility for change at this point depends upon the nature of the change and would require both parties involved in the agreement to sign an addendum that would cover the adjustment(s).

Good luck,

Bill

Scott Godzyk answered:
You should not be required to pay for a negotiator. The negotiator works for teh seller to negotiate the short sale with the bank and teh banks negotiator. Negotiators usually do not charge up front fees. An hoenst negotiator or company gets opaid ONLY if teh deal is accepted by the sellers bank and they add their fee on their hud which the banks do allow or get a percentage of the listing agents commission. The negotiator technically does not work for you and you should not be paying any part of it. It is teh listings agents duty and the sellers responsibility.

Some states have enacted laws about this, you or your agent need to research this by contatcing yoru attroney general to see if tehre are laws regarding this. I would refuse to pay. Asking you to pay this is wrong and not teh norm at all. You may also want to have an attorney review your contract and teh situation to protect you rights. good luck working thing sout

Who forced you?

And from your question, you don't even know who the negotiators were?

What does your Realtor say? These are issues your Realtor should be helping you with.

Hi Curious,

Yes ... they do. They do not cover the contents or your personal belongings, though. Excellent question!
