Joe Shoemaker answered:

Sorry to hear of your troubles.

I'm afraid that the questions you ask are only answerable by an attorney. Most of here are mere Real Estate professionals, wholly unqualified to give legal advice.

If you need a recommendation for someone locally, I'd be glad to help.

Good luck!

Hi Caitlin,
It is difficult but not impossible to get a home loan with a lower credit score. Different lenders have different requirements and it seems like those requirements change daily sometimes. I would recommend you talk with a mortgage broker as they sometimes have access to more than 1 type of loan. Try Ann Satterfield at Tippecanoe Mortgage at 765-448-3200 or Carrie Johnston at Approved Mortgage 765-543-1823. Good luck

Michael Emery answered:
Are you speaking about a home that has been foreclosed, has been on the market and is now being auctioned off? If so, the auction company usual pays your agent 1 percent of the sale price - if you preregister your agent prior to the auction. There is often a buyers premium of 5 percent on top of the sale price. This money is to pay your agent as well as the costs of the auction company. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
Bank of America has been much more receptive in the last 6 months to short sales. With BOA if you are facing a delay, chances are there is a communication breakdown, the negotiator and or listing agent needs daily contact with the banks negotaitor. Delays are caused when teh bank needs something but no one knows what they need due to a lack of communication usually on both parts. BOA has streamilined their process where you can get answers in less than 2 months now. At this point your negotiator needs to contact them to see what they need and get it tio them so the bank can make a decision.

please see my blog for tips and advice on how to get a short sale approved.

Erik Armstrong answered:
As long as you already have your house on the market you can submit an offer on the next home that includes the contingency that you must sell you home first. It's called a First Right Contingency Clause.

Now in most cases they will retain the right to show the house inorder to find a buyer without such a contingency, so you may also consider a First Right of Refusal. This provision in an agreement requires the owner of a property to give you the first opportunity to purchase the property before he or she offers it for sale to others. This will mean that if they recieve another offer you must at that point decide whether you wish to continue with the purchase or allow the other party to move forward.

Of course if you do sell your house before they recieve another offer then you will move forward with the purchase at that point.

Donald J. Leske II answered:
Ask and you shall receive, it was once said. :)

There are more rent to own properties becoming available now than ever before..., call a Real Estate professional in your area and ask about it. If they do not seem to know, then ask another one. I bought 4 houses this year and two of them have tenants in them now on a Rent to Own program. You may also find a lot more sellers will be receptive to this idea if you present it to them, especially those who must sell.

Best of luck in your search,
