Completely ignore all the Zestimates. They are for entertainment purposes only in my opinion. Call a local Realtor.
You asked a question and then answered it yourself. Oh wait I see, it's an ad!
I would talk to a realtor who has the CDPE designation. A Certified Deistressed Property Expert has training above and beyond your everyday agent. I have this dsignation but I am in Phoenix so can't help you, but go to the CDPE website and look one up in your area. Good luck.
I am not a lender but you should be able to qualify to buy a home 2 years after a 7BK with an FHA loan or after 4 years with a conventional loan. FHA requires a minimum of 620 FICO in most instances. Conventional loans usually require a credit score a little bit higher. Contact a lender though and they will be able to tell you for sure what you qualify for. Good luck. Hope that helped.
Tough situation. A good compromise is to hire her on the condition she co-list with an experienced agent in her office. This way she gets the business and will learn from the experienced agent how to sell a home and you win because you know you have an experienced agent selling your home.
Stay away from auction.com. Nothing about the buying process favors the bidders. Just take a close look at the contract they make you sign and you will see how one-sided it is.
I'm not sure what anybody could do with the information this person provided Ofe...With most lenders you will have to have 1 year of on time payments from the filing date and then you need to have permission from the Bankruptcy Trustee.Contact a lender for more information.
The most showings occur in the first 3 weeks typically. No showings usually mean the home is overpriced, however, I can't comment on your market since I am not familiar with it. Ask you agent what the average days on market are for your area. This will give you a better picture of how long it should take to sell your home.
The previous answer was great. Your about $700 into this deal already with the inspection and appriasal and your interest rate lock would probably expire by the time you found a new property and closed on it. The new rate might be higher, which would costs you hundreds or thousands more over the life of the loan. I would take the 50/50 deal and be done with it.
