This house is owned by a private seller but is currently being sold as a short sale. There is a contract betweeen the seller and a buyer but it has not yet been approved by the mortgage bank who has power to accept or reject the offer. It is currently being shown for backup offers in case the bank rejects the current offer. Are you interested in seeing this property? Give me a call at 913-707-3800 and we can set up a showing, on this property or other similar homes in Olathe.

Loren Pepperd answered:
That is an FHA question that must be answered by the bank that is holding the loan. There is usually a "Due On Sale" clause meaning anytime ownership changes on a loan that it must be paid for before you can sell any portion of it. You can also talk to the title company, however, the title company will tell you the same thing about the "Due On Sale" clause. Credit could also be a problem in this transaction, especially with FHA. ... more

Keith & Kinsey Schulz answered:
Was your home actually listed on the MLS and marketed by a quality Realtor, or did you do for sale by owner. If it was on the MLS and you had no activity, the house is overpriced for it's condition. I've noticed that tenants are good at deterring showings to. Tenants often decline showing requests if the showing or tell agents they didn't know about a showing when they come to the door.

I'd recommend reviewing the price, the showing condition of the property, the marketing methods, and try again. I haven't heard of anyone making more by selling at auction.

Ron Thomas answered:
Every facet of the Appraisal is listed in the papers:
When there is differnce in the item, a + or a - dollar value is assigned to it.
The amount varies, according to the Appraiser and the local values.
A new swimming pool may be "worth" $30,000, and an old swimming pool may be "worth" -$12,000.
The AGE of the houses is taken into consideration too, in the same manner.
Virtually every detail can be equalized in the way; except for one: LOCATION. That is why an Appraiser will use a nearby house that is not similar, (and adjust the numbers) rather than use a similar house that is miles away.
Got it?

It is pretty simple. On the top right of any Trulia page you can see your name when you're logged in. there is a drop-down arrow right next to your name. Point to it and there will be a drop-down menu - Click on My Profile - On the right hand side under the green Trulia banner/ header click on "Edit my profile" - Your profile page will open up with the "Personal Information" field open, but right above that there is the Email and Password category, which is not opened automatically, so you might have overlooked it. To the right of the category header there's a " + " sign (almost transparent), click on the " + " sign and "Email and Password" field will open up.

Here you can change your email address and/ or your password - Click on Save.

It varies greatly and depends on the area, price range of the home and actual list price. A home that is priced right for the market should sell in 30-60 days. The overall average days on market for the Wichita area in 2012 was 88 days. ... more
