Hi Debbie,
There are not many good comps in the last few months for your home, however looking back 6 months, there are sales comps of 450K, 450K, 491K, 590K - based on sq ft and radius. Keep in mind there are factors such as condition, exact location, lot size, layout, etc that get factored in too, so for a professional to accurately assess your home's value, they would need see it and know a little more about it. Talk to you agent, and find out how they came up with that price. Also keep in mind homes sell for what they are worth. Even if priced lower, a home may sell for higher. Actually, 2 of those comps above were listed for LOWER than they ended up selling for.
Good luck,
Richard Schulman

Unless you made other arrangements in the contract, you have to be out the day of settlement.

Hi Naomi.

You can, of course, conduct real estate transactions without using a broker. You can look up your options However, if there is already an interest in the property to purchase it you may want to use a broker/agent for a smooth and worry free transaction.

There are many things that can go wrong in the state of California if certain documents and protocol are not followed and the potential legal issues down the road are not worth the dollars spent on a realtor.

I have handled situations like yours where two parties are in agreement, there is no advertising necessary of the property, and want the transaction to go smoothly and without issue. My broker and I are willing to do this transaction for a substantially discounted fee.

If you are interested or have any other questions, please feel free to email or call me.

Have a great evening!

L.A. Real Estate Group answered:
Hi Kendra-
Our office works with many banks to negotiate short sales. Yes, when you agree to a short sale, your credit is affected and you can not walk away from the sale with any assets what so ever, however, the negative reporting on your credit is a lot worse if you simply "abandon" your payments and let the bank foreclose on your property. Also, a foreclosure will stick to your credit for a much longer period than a short sale will.
If you would like to talk, please feel free to give us a call.
