This is a question for your Realtor. Read your contract. Once there is an executed contract the seller cannot opt out. The buyer would be able to demand you fulfill your agreement using the "specific performance" clause. ... more

The market in most neighborhoods has shifted to sellers market. The main reason is due to the lack of available properties for sale. Buyers are typically competing against other buyers for the sme property and in many cases, Sellers are getting over list price. ... more

The only loans available for that size loan would be with a loan bank that you have a relationship with. It would have a 3 - 5 year call.

Hi There!

Here are few reasons to enlist the services of a Licensed Realtor:

First of all, you do not pay the Realtor fee as a buyer, it is paid by the Seller.

If you are interested in a preowned home you would not have access to view
without a Realtor. You also would not have access to any information about
homes that had recently sold in that neighborhood as to base your offer on.

If you are looking at New Construction, are you familiar with New Construction?
Do you know what to look for as far as quality products, energy efficiency ect.
Do you understand and have knowedge of Builders Contracts? Do you know
what incentives might be available to you?

Realtors have the greatest access to homes on the Market, including homes
listed by other Realtors.

A Realtor will help you decide how much home you can afford, how you can
arrange for down payment and what financing options may be open to you.

A Realtor can help you find the home BEST suited to your needs with style,
size, amenities,location, accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping ect.

A Realtor can supply information on property values, taxes, utility costs, municipal
services and facilities.

A Realtor will be the Liaison between you and the Seller and can present offers,
and counter offers until agreement is reached.

These are just a few things to consider, as a Realtors knowledge is so much more involved
than this, but a good start!

Kim Nwachukwu answered:
That is a question best answered by a real estate attorney. Realtors are prohibited from giving legal advice. You might get an answer from a local title company office but you really need a real estate attorney to help you. Start with your divorce attorney and he or she should be able to point you in the right direction. My opinion is that it will not work because of the loan, but that is nothing more than my opinion. ... more

Shelly Koehler answered:
Each property or landlord has their own criteria. You would just want to ask that question prior to paying any application fees to be sure it wouldn't be an automatic denial. Everything is relevant and will probably depend on time since, re-establishment etc. but again, up to the owner of the property. ... more
