How should she go about everything once she sells her house and is ready to buy a house in Kansas City from out in Hialeah Florida?<br/><br/>I'm willing to look at the houses out here for her, etc, but... do we mail the paper work to her in Fl?&nbsp;<br/><br/>One more question... her realtor is REALLY pushing for her to have the house empty BEFORE he puts the house on the market, which I think is just wrong, because she has nowhere to go until the house is sold and she can finally move out here (our house is WAY TOO SMALL to have her, my grandmother, brother and cats for more than a few of weeks). Does she need to have it empty??? She's selling the house "as is", and the realtor wants her ready to move out the second he can sell it. Can't she just pack as much as she can until it's sold, and then my husband and I can fly down and help with everything else in one shot while we can be there to help?<br/><br/>I REALLY appreciate any advice we can get! &nbsp;Thank you! &nbsp;:-D<br \><br \>4 replies Mon, 02 Sep 2013 10:52:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-protocol-for-selling-a-house-in-in-Florida-and-then-buying-one-in-Kansas/509627/ 2013-09-02T10:52:00Z Negotiating http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Negotiating/421600/ <p>the property is selling for $175,000 from investers who bought the house for $90,000 in <a href="http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/fore_lt/">foreclosure</a>. Nice improvements to the property but I'm pre-approved for $155,000. I know in this area the prices will decline 3.6%&nbsp;in the next six months and the homes in this area still sells for 150,000. the property has been on the market for 70 days. Will the seller laugh at a $130,000 to $135,000 offer?</p><br \><br \>7 replies Thu, 03 Nov 2011 14:19:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Negotiating/421600/ 2011-11-03T14:19:00Z
