Hi Lisa, Was the home included in the bankruptcy?  You may want to consider a short sale.

Since perception of crime levels is highly personal, the state regulators prohibit real estate brokers and salespersons from discussing them. However, you can quickly take a look at and make an assessment yourself. It's more thorough than Trulia. ... more

No, you can always make another offer, but start over, don't do an addendum to the one that insulted them.

Rich Bennett answered:

Certainly being move-in ready has its advantages but if you're priced higher than the comps and if you have competition nearby, you may need to go down to the point of those comps. Are homes staged in your area? How many other houses are for sale within 1/2 from you?

Wishing you well.

Try to meet in the middle and see if the buyer is willing. If they are not, then you should probably lower the price and proceed to settlement!

Scott Godzyk answered:
It depends on some missing items, if the house is being foreclosed on, the bank will begin eviction after the foreclosure, if you are buying a short sale, you want to make sure the people are out of the house BEFORE you close or they become your problem. You should seek guidance from yoru agent and or loan officer ... more

Reuben Pacheco answered:
You can refinance if the property if the property has equity and you have the ability to qualify for a loan. But, the Seller has the same rights as your 1st trust deed lender ( in your state) to foreclose if you do not pay as agreed. Also, they ( Seller/Lemder) are not anymore obligated to modify the loan than the 1st T.D. lender is.

I would think that you might be able to do something with the 2nd T.D. lender if you have a good working relationship. Hopefully no past 30x 60x or 90x plus lates, otherwise I don't think there is much hope the Seller would want to work with you.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Just how low is your score--if you haven't done so yet-- visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first, see exactly what your budget can handle and have your credit score checked--their scoring is different--Currently FHA loans do require a minimum score of 620 and 3.5% down--there may be lenders willing to work with a lesser score, however the interest rate may be higher. Your loan officer may suggest ways to improve your credit in the fastest time if needed. In the meantime, work on repairing your credit--keep credit cards below 50%, pay all bills on time, pay off old debt, pay down debt, dispute old negatives. ... more

CJ Brasiel answered:
Tab -

A seller can continue to review and accept offers until there is a ratified contract. (Signed agreement between buyer and seller) It is not only required that you sign the offer but the seller sign the offer. Any counters must be signed and a confirmation of receipt is required by the seller to have a ratified contract.

Buyer offers
Seller counters
Buyer accepts (or counters)
Seller confirms acceptance (or counters)
Ratified contract

The counters and confirmation of acceptance go as far as to have the date AND time of acceptance.

If $338K is your highest and best then it is all you can do. The rules come into play as they relate to a "ratified" contract.

Nice Profile answered:
Offers have to be presented by law. Ask for the rejection part of the offer to be signed or a rejection letter from the seller. They must present the offer even if the property is under contract. Well at least in Florida. Have your agent contact the listing agent and request/demand an answer. ... more
