Oh, and we don't really have money laying around to do all these repairs, so the money will have to be borrowed. &nbsp;All the more reason why I must recover it 100%. &nbsp;Any advice would be appreciated. &nbsp;<br/>&nbsp;<br/>&nbsp;<br \><br \>8 replies Sun, 30 Mar 2014 19:10:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Getting-100-Year-Old-House-Ready-to-Sell/534434/ 2014-03-30T19:10:00Z Buyer using VA loan. I've heard VA loans were ill advised from sleds standpoint. Please Advise http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buyer-using-VA-loan-I%27ve-heard-VA-loans-were-ill-advised-from-sleds-standpoint-Please-Advise/532732/ Help. Buyer made full price offer with me paying some closing costs for VA loan. I was ok with the amount of closing costs and felt we had good offer . After contract signed buyers agent says buyer can't close until she starts work and wrote another offer with closing date July 8th (over 3 1/2 months from now). I'm uncomfortable with this date and the fact that it's a VA loan. And have heard stories about low appraisals, inspection issues etc. worried I will get burned a couple months down the line. Home has been on market for 2 years without much activity. Price reduced several times. Last month we had 12 showings.

Therefore, I have been stuck with this unscrupulous loan on a house that I don't want! The anks that have owned my loan are Countrywide, then BOA and now Green Tree (which is a very unethical loan company). I never moved into the house and have been renting the house from crappy to crappy tenants just to pay my note and am losing money every month I rent it and my tenants have trashed my house.

No vacations / no going out to eat, etc.&nbsp;We realized we needed to get out while still afloat &amp; find a more affordable option.<br/><br/>In May '12 we listed the house in an extremely sluggish Baton Rouge market.&nbsp;We've literally held an Open House every weekend since and only have 1-3 people show up.&nbsp;We've shown the house <strong>only twice</strong> since we listed it 4 months ago.&nbsp;People who see the home always comment about how nice it is and we get nothing but "Wows" when&nbsp;they come in. After all, it's only a year old home&nbsp;with top-notch amenities.<br/><br/>To answer the inevitable question, we are using a limited service realtor.&nbsp;It basically means they only put us on MLS.&nbsp;So exposure is not a problem. It also is very unlikely price considering we are one of the lowest per sqft in my area.&nbsp;I cannot afford to use a full service realtor because, as I said, we just build this house last year and I simply don't have the equity in the house to be able to pull it off.&nbsp;What I mean is, if you take a realtor's commission out of our sale price, we'd&nbsp;go under.&nbsp;So a&nbsp;limited realtor is the best we can do (and, yes, we've factored in a 3% buyer's agent fee).<br/><br/>So essentially my question is this: What other options are there if you <strong>can't:<br/></strong>- afford a full service realtor<br/>- do&nbsp;any <em>more</em> open houses<br/>-&nbsp;lower the price (once you take buyer's actual offer + 3% realtor fee, we'd barely make enough to pay the bank as it is)<br/>- advertise more<br/><br/>The only thing I can think is to actually mail flyers to realtors in the area telling them to bring their clients, but I would think agents would find that abrasive &amp; only see that as an opportunity to call me &amp; solicit their services to me.<br/><br/>Sorry for length!<br \><br \>8 replies Thu, 13 Sep 2012 19:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Getting-Out-What-to-do-about-zero-activity/459799/ 2012-09-13T19:50:00Z How do I reset My Make Me Move price? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-reset-My-Make-Me-Move-price/459419/ 1 reply Tue, 11 Sep 2012 01:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-reset-My-Make-Me-Move-price/459419/ 2012-09-11T01:53:00Z
