The realtor asked my cousin for her mortgage and bank account numbers. It seems like a scam. Why would a supposed reputable realtor ask for that type of information? They haven't sold the home or anything. Can she still get out of the contract without any penalty?

We are averaging 1 showing per week. But no offers as of yet. All the feed back we are getting is that they like the house but don't want to be in the flood zone. We are priced competitively. Actually a bit lower than some houses and our house is in better condition and for the most part all of the homes are in the flood zone. Is there anything we can do to bring serious buyers who are willing to buy in a flood zone?<br \><br \>6 replies Tue, 19 Aug 2014 16:28:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-sell-my-house-that-is-in-a-flood-zone/555452/ 2014-08-19T16:28:00Z How do I get more people to look at my house for sale and get it sold? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-more-people-to-look-at-my-house-for-sale-and-get-it-sold/542262/ Hello, <br/><br/>I am a home owner whose house has been on the market for about 20 days now (though we took it off the market for a week to re-finish the floors). We live in Alexandria about 5-6 miles from Old Town.&nbsp;Two other houses in our development sold within days. Unfortunately this is not the case with our home though it has more updates than most; is open and filled with light; has&nbsp;a spectacular view of a fish pond and a creek and is just minutes from DC.&nbsp;&nbsp; We did get a below-market contract last week,&nbsp;which we rejected. My concern, however,&nbsp;is that we just don't have enough people looking at the house.&nbsp;We dropped the price after just a few days in the market to just at, and even slightly below, market value; refinished the hardwood floors, removed clutter, painted,&nbsp;planted flowers--all the right things we read about--but I don't hear my phone ringing off the hook.&nbsp;I don't get it. Our realtor was convinced it would go the first week and even get multiple contracts. I would settle for more than 3-4 parties a week looking at it. &nbsp;Is there a standard for what is considered to be acceptable interest in a house for sale? &nbsp;Is there anything else one can do to get traffic in addition to listings with photos and virtual tours? Are there listings or&nbsp;platforms where you can better target your potential buyers? <br/><br/>Thank you.<br \><br \>7 replies Fri, 23 May 2014 21:52:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-more-people-to-look-at-my-house-for-sale-and-get-it-sold/542262/ 2014-05-23T21:52:00Z how do i post an open house http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-i-post-an-open-house/564875/ 1 reply Thu, 30 Oct 2014 20:14:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-i-post-an-open-house/564875/ 2014-10-30T20:14:00Z can't afford repairs to home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/can%27t-afford-repairs-to-home/564760/ I am in an older home (1957) and need repairs to plumbing, heating air conditioning and fence.
