Rider -

What did your original Buyer Agreement outline as far as future commission? I suspect it doesn't say and renewals are without the agent / broker.

Best of luck,

Your agent will be best be able to advise you on taxes as they relate to specific properties and location--keep in mind that assessments are figured as such-- If there are 10 houses in your defined neighborhood and your home has a market value of $100,000 and the other nine homes have market values of $200,000, then your assessed value for tax purposes, often calculated as average neighborhood market value, would be $190,000. Your neighbors benefit from your under enhanced property, whereas you pay for your neighbors’ over enhanced properties when taxes are assessed--no guarantees you will get a break, even if you file to have your property re-assessed at some point and time. ... more

John Ford answered:
yes you can as long as you qualify for both. The place to start is to talk to a loan officer. If you need help let me know.

John Ford answered:
Agents by Law have to submit all offers. Banks don't just look at the price. The terms are important. Time is money as they say so if your looking for a loan the bank looks at it as all cash can close today with no chance of a loan not being approved. When competing with other bids you do have to make your offer look more appealing to the seller or in this case the bank. Often the bank does not give you a second chance to increase your bit. ... more

No. Only if the bank does not accept the other offer.
You might be lucky and get your new offer in before the
other buyer gets their counteroffer in.
These shortsales are not always straight forward like a regular
purchase. So I wish you luck. If you really want this house
tell the realtor that and they will tell you what you have to do to
get it.

Why did the Realtor not refer her back to her attorney? Where was her attorney during all of this? Attorneys run these shows and are responsible and the Realtor should be making sure the attorney is deliverying.

Your sister should have received all of these docs at the closing? I would get on this immediately!

Fran and Mark Redding answered:

Based on your location we are guessing that you mean Levittown New York. However you should consider Levittown Pennsylvania. The homes are affordable and it is an easy commute to NYC on the NJT northeast corrider line. If PA would work for your contact us for listing information.

Good Luck in you search.

I found a number of properties within 30-45 minutes of Sun City that meet your criteria that are very nice. Some of them are short sales but many are not. There are a few in Fishhawk Ranch which is about 35 minutes away. There are a couple in Mirabay, a few in Apollo Beach (Southshore Falls) , and a few in Valrico (Diamond Hill, Pine Grove, Savannah Landings) also Riverview, Bradenton, Palmetto, all easily within 45 minutes of SCC. Also, if you like in-town living, there is one in St Pete at the Townview Condos and in downtown Tampa at the Parkcrest on Harbour Island. I would be happy to send you specific properties, if you would like them. ... more

Hi Terry,

A buyer's broker is the broker owner of the company. A buyer's agent is the agent that works under the broker. If you are considering a buyer's agent, look for the agent that is an ABR. That stands for Accredited Buyer's Representative. The agent has extensive education in representing a buyer. Feel free to visit my website a click on the buyer's agent link. Good Luck ... more

Pat Starnes answered:
I recommend you obtain at least three quotes from local insurance agents as rates can vary widely. If you live in a high risk area (known for extreme weather conditions) or have a low credit score, you will pay a higher premium for coverage. Check with both well known national companies as well as an independent agent. To give you a quote, the insurer will need basic information on the property you are buying as well as any past claims you may have had. The agent can explain the types of coverage and deductible choices. It is well advised to ask if there are any exclusions of coverage and to READ your policy once you have obtained homeowners insurance. ... more
