I am located in the Downtown area and can help you find buyers immediately. Please call me: 305-804-2506. Or email me at xochilt@relatedisg.com. Trulia (as well as a combination of other well known sites) is a service triggered by MLS listings and the only way to post on their website is to list, unfortunately.

Let's talk. Let me know your concerns and we can find a solution.

If you can't get the information from the Seller's agent then I would recommend you contact the Broker for the sellers' agent and let them know what is going on.

HSDB,

I can pull the data for you, but only for limited geography like a zip code or smaller city like Miami Beach. If you want to analyze the whole county (or country), you're probably better off calling the National Association of Realtors, who keep that sort of thing handy.

Celia, you should ask this question to your attorney (as I am assuming you have legal representation in this transaction) OR ask your account. We Realtors here are not suppose to give legal opinions, and you should absolutely get the correct answers and be prepared financially to have this sale done smoothly.

Good luck

You may be able to get the short sale done without a Realtor but please remember that are tons of documentation to be prepared and if you don't have experience in doing that, you will just get completely lost and just delay the purchase. So my advise: hire a Realtor!

You should absolutely hire an attorney, you do not want to make any legal mistakes that will cost you much more in the long run. Real estate attorneys don't cost much. My advise: have a realtor and an attorney on your side to have a smooth process.

Good luck

Gisele Zachar, PA answered:
Don't want to work with a Realtor: your first mistake. Don't forget by saving broker's commission and can loose a lot of the sale of your property:
a) by now having enough exposure of your property
b) your home will not be listed at all the sites that only Realtors can advertise
c) you will be running around back and forth to your house to acommodate showings (mornings, evenings, etc...)
d) you will need to run open houses and be able to answer tons of questions to potential buyers
e) you won't know the real price of your property unless you know the market and your neighborhood really well. Be careful not to overprice it or under price it!

Good luck.

Gisele Zachar, PA answered:
The best thing to do in order to get the highest price for your home is hiring a good real estate agent specialized in your area. She/he can provide you with the market analysis of your neighborhood and you both can decide on the listing price.
We agents are very used to see tons of homes and hear opinions from buyers every day. The agent should be able to advise you on how you should present your house during showings and whether your house will need minor work just as a paint job.

Here are my tips:
a) your house should be freshly painted in neutral color. Darker colors may not be appealing to buyers and they can just walk away
b) your house must be neat and very clean with a "home feel". If you need to declutter than do it, because it will make a big difference.
c) Make sure you do not have tons of staff (furniture, boxes, frames on the walls). It is proven that the less you have in your home, the easier it is for a potential buyer to imagine himself and his belonging fitting in that house.
d) Make something special at every open house so buyers will remember "your" home. Buyers see tons of homes every weekend and they forget most of them. Bake some cookies (the smell is so appealing...), have some drinks if it's a hot day etc...

Good luck!

Yes, they can. You should pay the little extra money to have an attorney review your final release "before" you attend closing. The lenders will release the mortgage from the property but not always release you from the Note and they can come after you. ... more

Make sure that you have a clear understanding as to the short sale process.
The Realtor you have chosen as your listing agent is going to bear a lot of the responsibility, so I encourage you to make certain that they know what they are doing. ... more

Patrick Casey answered:
Hi Orlando,
The first thing to determine is whether you can do a short sale.
Just becuse a property is "under water" does not automatically qualify it for a short sale.
At the end of a sale, the bank may report the "short" as unearned income to you, but you don't necessarily owe the tax on it. Part of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act provided for this exemption.
Depending on the bank, you may receive a "Deficiency Judgment" for the outstanding balance.
What I'm trying to communcate is that this is a complex process requiring knowledgeable proefessionals on your side. Simply making your determination based on a possible IRS 1099 reporting may need much more consideration.
