Who is paying? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Repairs-needed-on-a-VA-foreclosed-home-Who-is-paying/556840/ I am under contract with a VA foreclosed home. The home's AC condenser is missing and will be required to be replaced before the home can be appraised. Per my agent, we will need to go ahead and get the inspection done and order the appraisal. Even though the home won't be able to be appraised until the repair is done. Our agent has been telling us that the seller (VA) will pay for the repair.<br/>The problem is we have none of this in writing and our agent keeps telling us we won't get that in writing. We don't want to risk our own money for repairs on something that only has a verbal agreement to be reimbursed. And what if for some reason something happened and our loan wasn't approved, wouldn't we still be held liable for that repair bill? Can anyone help shed light on how this works??<br \><br \>0 replies Wed, 27 Aug 2014 20:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Repairs-needed-on-a-VA-foreclosed-home-Who-is-paying/556840/ 2014-08-27T20:09:00Z Who is selling forclosed property 6507 86th St. Lubbock?

I did this yesterday, but haven't received any contact yet. is realtytrac a legit website? I today just now found the same properties on zillow, and there is an agent listed, for the property as opposed to just realtytrac, they are one of the same few agents who sell (apparently) non-forclosed condos in the same complex (just looking on zillow/trulia, you see patterns)... anyway since I have already signed up for realtytrac, does anybody know if it is a legit website, and then how long does it take for the agent to contact you after you press the button saying please contact me about this property?<br/><div>Thank you.<br/><div>Oh, and my other question, do you need to get a buying agent, in order to buy a foreclosed condo, if you already have it picked out?
