As many as you can get an agreement for. Usually there is payment required but you can negotiate your extensions with either hard money or additional earnest money ~ best of luck !

Any negotiation of price has to be done by a licensed real estate agent. You will want to address these questions with your broker or TREC yourself to get more detailed information on what a non-licensed assistant can and cannot do on your behalf.

Hi Kattin,

You are registered as a home buyer in Allen, but your question sounds like you have a listing on the market in Prosper. If you are asking about how active the market or current showings are for that area, your listing agent can pull showing data by zip code and price from Centralized Showing Service and compare it to the Active listings in the same area. This will give you a measure of the current and past showing activity. Spring break might have had a short term affect on showings, but often there is no way to know what caused a slow down. If your agent does not have a access to the CSS information, send the zip code, property price, & the number of beds & baths to my email. I will pull a report for you.

Contact your escrow agent. They should be able to help you. If not, contact your local Recorder's Office (public records) and you should be able to get one from them as well. I hope this helps. ... more

First thing every should be in writing and it is what is in writing than can be covered under the law. Your listing agent should be guiding your thriough these things with teh buyer, there is no excuse to go past days or to not have communication. You should have got a lawyers anme and number who is closing the sale for the buyer, do they have a clear to close do they have a HUD? your agent should have already called them along with the buyers loan officer to ask the same thing. ... more

Are you asking for information on how to do a rehab on this home so that it can be ready to sell "as is, all fixed up?" Or do you want information on a buyer's loan to purchase it "as is," and do a rehab?

Tim Moore answered:
Much will depend on any contract you signed. Someone needs to look at it to see. If it allows you to sell it and pay off the original owner earlier than called for you could sell it and use the proceeds to pay off the original owner just as you would if it was a bank that lent you the money to buy it. I would speak to a lawyer to be sure. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
The best time to sell is when you need to, and are ready to sell. Time on the market does vary by exact location, pricing, size, condition, etc., therefore consider contacting a few local agents from different realty companies and ask for a cma, comparative market analysis; review the data, ask opinions and go from there.... ... more

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
Are you working with a Realtor in Dallas? He or she would have a good idea by knowing your home well, and then comparing it to similar homes that have sold recently. A well prepared, repaired and staged up, may be with some new paint on a few walls and price RIGHT CAN sell much faster than
other competing homes, but you need the right Realtor assisting you in staging and preparing the
home right....
If you need a recommendation let us know..... I gladly send you a good one your way.
Good Luck to you

Lots of folks move title from an individual name to add another, say if a marriage occurs, or do things like move homes into the names of children, a trust or LLC. Have you spoken with a title company or real estate attorney? You might go that path, they will explain options and rules. ... more

Very possible that even though your agent attempted to remove the listing from Trulia the site has not done so. You may claim the listing and remove it yourself if you would like.
