You are registered as a home buyer in Allen, but your question sounds like you have a listing on the market in Prosper. If you are asking about how active the market or current showings are for that area, your listing agent can pull showing data by zip code and price from Centralized Showing Service and compare it to the Active listings in the same area. This will give you a measure of the current and past showing activity. Spring break might have had a short term affect on showings, but often there is no way to know what caused a slow down. If your agent does not have a access to the CSS information, send the zip code, property price, & the number of beds & baths to my email. I will pull a report for you.
Are you making money each month on rent? If you must sell what is the overall shape of the home? Location? Right now homes in Plano are selling better than ever before.
Homes in almost all areas of Plano especially ones that are in good condition are selling within days of being on the market and normally have multiple offers. If you must sell I would highly recommend consulting with a local agent that knows the market here about finding the current market price of your home. This would give you a good idea of if you should sell now or wait.
Overall we are in a seller's market right now and this IS the time to list!
I would be happy to help you in any way I can.

BPO is usually only performed when its a foreclosure and the bank needs a broker's opinion to determine what price to list. But as for short sale, its more likely the buyer's lender required an apprisial which usually get done within a week of an executed contract.

The only thing I can tell you, is that I've never seen a charge for a credit report.
Come to think of it, the rent money is probably taken out of the Escrow for the 30 days, so there is no credit involved.
I don't know the law there, you might want to post in MA.
However, here in Texas it is possible if the sponsoring broker allows it.
Not advisable in most cases, but possible and legal.
It should also be disclosed that the agent is licensed.... more
The only negative I could see is if you could tell that a pool was once there. Some people want pools but most do not so it should not effect the value of your home and you may attract more buyers not having the pool. Just make sure the job is done correctly and you should not have a problem.

Hi Ron, Her broker says, she works independently and we should deal directly with her. She is an old women and very rude to talk to. I will explore the other options you have suggested. Thanks for your help.... more
Actually, though, that model could work. Look at it this way: First, as a buyer there's typically no commission (to the buyer). So if you're the buyer and you're being asked to pay a 3% commission, there's income to the agent that you wouldn't get with the "traditional" arrangement of a commission when selling, but not buying.
As for the 0% commission selling, ask the agent. It's possible--I'm only guessing--that the listing agent might structure the sale the same way a FSBO would. Now, some FSBOs are willing to pay the buyer's agent commission. Others aren't. An agent might structure it like that: You pay no commission. However, the commission would have to be paid by the buyer. Be careful: That would serious limit the number of potential buyers who'd consider your home.
Be sure to check your local and state laws and ordinances, but I have seen for sale by owners put it right on the sign in their yard. This allows the agent who may be out with a buyer to see that you are willing to pay the fee.... more
400 bucks cost for an appraisal of a 1.5M property ... I would do it in a heart beat .... at least you can verify your agent comp value (not that I don't trust agents but they are not as good as appraisers when it comes to valuing a house). Have you ever thought about that your agent may have or could have listed 100K less ??? that would be a large chunk of changes !... more
