In most cases you don't sell a home to children, the home's ownership is transferred via a change in title.
It sounds to me as though your sons are trying to obtain financing for a loan to buy the home from you. Are you selling at market value or below market value?

Who's idea was it to construct the sale of the home in this manner?
It sounds to me as though you need some alternatives. I am not a CPA, but just a quick search turned up the link below. You should talk with a CPA regarding the tax consequences of transferring ownership this way.

Linda Slocum, CRS, CDPE | Santa Clarita Realtor answered:
What you're probably looking at is the amount owed to the bank for one of the loans. Many services pick up these amounts and show them as though the property is listed for sale for that amount, when in fact it is not. These pre-foreclosure homes will either be sold as short sales at a price closer to fair market value, or they will be bought back by the bank and sold as REO's.

Pre-foreclosures that are reported in this manner are NOT currently listed for sale, they are just homeowners who have received notices of default. The services who post these as if they are listed for a sale are just creating more confusion for home buyers.

Ellen Chung answered:
In short, no, there isn't a formula that Realtors use in order to calculate how much to offer for a home. How much you offer is really dependent on how you feel, how much you want the home.

Depending on the condition of the home, why it's being sold, how much you're in love with the home, your offer will vary. If you can tell that the house will require extensive termite repair or there is extensive cosmetic repairs that need to be done, you can take all that into consideration and lower your offer from that point. If you are working with a Realtor they will be able to best guide you as to how much you should offer to have some sort of shot at getting either an acceptance or at least a counteroffer. Their opinion is based more off experience than off a formula of sorts.

Either way it doesn't hurt to try! Good luck!

Hi Mitra, here is a link to an article on Oshkosh. It will give you good insight into the community overall.

As far as past years for houses sold, you could contact their City Hall. Also, Oshkosh is in Winnebago County in Wisconsin. Google may help you search as long as you know the County. Also, the local Realtor Association keeps those stats - Margaret Canfield

Every market is different. I am an Realtor in Marshfield Wi and my brother just moved back here from Oshkosh. From what I've seen of the market in that area there are plenty of homes available in all price ranges, but It is always best to contact a realtor for the area you are interested in. They know their market the best. ... more
