Having taken a college course in COMMUNICATION, I learned that when there is a breakdown in communication; it is my fault! Seriously!

Your Agent failed to break-down the different Closing Costs: He is the expert, you are the CLIENT.
He should have been more explicit.
But he wasn't trying to bamboozle.

Both parties normally have their own Closing Costs.

If the closing is so far out that you will not be moved and settled before having your surgery, you should try to get an extension of closing. If the buyer is getting a loan, it may depend on where they are in the process as to whether they can extend and how long
Obviously, if you need emergency surgery that cannot wait until after your sale and relocation, you may want to consider the rent back option. Otherwise, you may need to speak to a real estate attorney to find out what recourse the Buyer would have if you did not move forward with the transaction.

It seems to me that you should be able to work this out.
Best of luck to you.

Hello Trulia Jacksonville,

Having a credit score of 740 or more should qualify for the best mortgage rates from most lenders.

You can also buy points to lower your interest rate.

I hope this helps!

Great question! The seller pays the buyer's agent. So if you are a home buyer, your costs are covered by the seller of the home.

For what it's worth in my opinion absolutely not. If the seller must be home I would truly advise them to not follow the buyers around and to stay out of the way. Refer any and all questions to the listing agent. Allan ... more

Seller usually choose the Title company and pays for the Buyers Policy. If the buyer wants to choose their own Title company then they pay for Buyers Policy making it cheaper for the seller. This is a designated via a check mark on lines 119 to 123 of the FarBar as-is contract. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".

Each brokerage will charge differently. There is no standard (even saying that there is an average is a violation of Sherman Anti-Trust). Best avenue is to interview several brokers to discuss market value, marketing plans, pictures etc & choose the agent you feel most comfortable with.

I would be happy to discuss details with you.

Dan Simon answered:

Short sales and foreclosures seem to be in just about every neighborhood and every price range, they certainly have impacted values. If the buyer of your property needs a loan for their purchase the property will have to appraise. If the appraiser can not find enough traditional sales (they usually need 3) to use for their comps/data they will need to use the distressed properties. Most lenders require that appraisers use sold comps that are less then 6 months old if possible.
