Are you working with a Realtor in Dallas? He or she would have a good idea by knowing your home well, and then comparing it to similar homes that have sold recently. A well prepared, repaired and staged up, may be with some new paint on a few walls and price RIGHT CAN sell much faster than
other competing homes, but you need the right Realtor assisting you in staging and preparing the
home right....
If you need a recommendation let us know..... I gladly send you a good one your way.
Good Luck to you

Ron Thomas answered:
If the Seller is a private individual, they (probably) can require a CASH offer.
Institutional Sellers, (banks and service companies) probably wouldn't try to require that; there would be too much jeopardy.
We have seen Banks favor CASH for Investors, but not overtly.

If a CASH buyer offered $200,000, and a Financed Buyer offered $220,000; which one do you think the Bank would accept.
When all the dust settles; everyone will have their money.

The LISTING does not specify CASH.
That looks like a lot of home for $129!
What does your Realtor say?

Brian Rayl answered:
Hi R. Jack,

I might be able to help you. The problem with Section 8 is that most landlords don't accept it even though they should. It is a wonderful program and is actually just as beneficial for the landlord as it is for tenant. It just requires a few hoops to be jumped through first.

From your perspective, the difficulty is that there is really no way to find out if they accept Section 8 other than to call every single agent and ask them. This is where it becomes a headache and most agents will bow out because the time doesn't justify the commission.

Me or one of my team will need to speak with you to find out if we can help you. Please feel free to contact my office at the number below.

Don Groff answered:
Appraisals are always somewhat subjective. The value of a home is what somebody is actually willing to pay for it. Besides that the appraiser needs to show comparable homes that sold for similar amounts. If not the appraisal may have come in lower than your purchase price which does happen at times. Appraisals usually come in close to the purchase price which is where they should as that is what the home is selling for in the marketplace.

You paid for the appraisal for the lender to be OK with what you are paying for the home in reality. The lender wants to know the price being paid for the property is fair and market value and the appraisal shows this.

Hope that makes sense.
