Practically all houses get multiple offer, I am talking&nbsp; about 15+ offers.&nbsp; I am trying to buy with a conventional <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">loan</a> - 25% down, but so far, after submitting almost 10 offers I haven't gotten a single response.&nbsp;&nbsp; Almost always selling agent tells us that we are competing against all cash offer(s).<br/><br/>I already removed inspection contingency from my last 4 offers, leaving financial contingency only.&nbsp; We also bid higher than asking price, but nothing seems to work.&nbsp; Last week my agent told me, that I am a well qualified buyer and that I might want to remove financial contingency as well in order to compete with all-cash offers.&nbsp; She said that we should make an offer with appraisal contingency only.&nbsp; Is this a very dangerous proposition, is she out of her mind?&nbsp; Is this the only way to get my offer accepted?<br/><br/>I started doing research on hard-money and bridge <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">loans</a>, perhaps I should explore that option?&nbsp; If I get a hard money loan, will I be able to finance it right away or there is a seasoning period?&nbsp;&nbsp; Please advice.<br/><br/>Thanks in advance,<br \><br \>11 replies Wed, 12 Aug 2009 01:31:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buying-REO-property/267051/ 2009-08-12T01:31:00Z deed/title recorded into a stranger's name - what to do?! http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/deed-title-recorded-into-a-stranger%27s-name-what-to-do/224700/ I found out from the county that my escrow and title company recorded the deed/title to my home into another person's&nbsp;name. &nbsp;They claim they are working this out, but I have no verification and feel anxious.<br/><br/>The person (a stranger to me) who's name is now on the deed was a former unsuccessful bidder, and this person still has attachment and interest in owning this house (yes, it has to be complicated: they had gotten so far in the process that they already ordered and paid for new carpet). &nbsp;Part of fixing this error will require this person to sign paperwork acknowledging the error.<br/><br/>Has anyone been in or heard of any similar situation? &nbsp;Do I need to speak with a lawyer? &nbsp;I'd appreciate any advice or comments, even if you're not completely sure what I should do. &nbsp;Thank you.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br \><br \>6 replies Fri, 17 Apr 2009 05:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/deed-title-recorded-into-a-stranger%27s-name-what-to-do/224700/ 2009-04-17T05:06:00Z
