Short sale under unusual circumstances


There are definitely some lenders that can help you work through this .Many people were in the same situation as you and are now able to purchase a new home after two years. A lender with short sale experience is your best avenue. I know several including banks that will lend after a short sale.

Was I right to fire my listing agent?


It sounds like you had some challenges with your listing agent.It is necessary when an agent changes companies to ask their current company to release the listing, however some companies will not release the listing without a formal written request from the seller. Usually you have to ask the seller to cancel the listing with the original listing broker, and then you can relist with the new company the agent has moved to or you as the seller have decided to list with.It is important for a listing agent to listen to their clients requests even if sometimes they seem unreasonable, as after all the seller is the client and the property belongs to the seller.When I list a home I sit down with the seller and understand their needs and wants. I outline what the marketing will be both internet and print with a monthly schedule based on the time frame the property is on the market.If the marketing is not working in one area then we sit down and discuss what other options there are.I am with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty, and our company's mission is to market a property, not an agent and to market to the global market and we specialize in horse properties, golf properties and many more niche markets. I would be more than happy to sit down with you and see what your needs are and see if I could assist you to get your property sold quickly and at the highest and best price. Let me know if I can share oour marketing plan with you. Andrea Gilbert [Email removed by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy.]

In order to determine how much your home is worth, you need to get an analysis of the most recent solds in you your neighborhood. This can give you a basic idea of the home values in your area. However, there are other factors that determine the pricing of your home; square footage,,number of bedrooms,number of bathrooms, upgrades , and lot size to just name a few. To really evaluate your home, a realtor is your best choice as a realtor has the ability to show you all the data affecting your home, for example distressed homes that may have been sold in your area, that aren't alwaysdisclosed on the Multiple  Listing Service. The Realtor can also help youdetermine a price after seeing your home and comparing it what is  on themarket, and what has sold.If you would like a free analysis of your home, I would be happy to help.Andrea Gilbert, Andrea Gilbert & Associates, Prudential  California RealtyTEL:[contact information and hotlink removed by Zillow moderator]
