How can a home be advertised for sale without the owner knowing

Answer

Is it on the local MLS or just being advertised? May have been a misprint in address or a mistake in the advertising company . I am more interested to know do they have interior pictures? and if so how did they get those without the owners knowledge? If the owners are elderly the children may have listed the home for sale and you may want to try there too. I would just contact the company and request it be taken down. Good luck!

Who is paying the real estate agents?

Answer

The reason you're getting conflicting information is very simple, it is in direct correspondence with the type of agency relationship you form with your realtor. If i can attempt to explain it broadly as possible so as it may also pertain to the area you're looking for , it is broken down into 4 basic choices  Listing agent is someone who will represent the home and the seller, she will be paid by the seller but will not represent your best interests in the sale Dual agent is an agent who will represent both you and the seller at the same time, Which is not the worst way to go but make sure they are capable of finding listings other then their own, Buyers agent who represents the buyer outside of a written agreement will only get the fee as agreed upon on and listed for your agent to see on their local MLS Buyers Broker is an agent who represents you with a written agreement and very often there is a set commission written in a % lets say its 3% which is common here in NY. If the local MLS Listing you are viewing is only paying 2% the agent may look to the buyer to pay the remaining 1%.  This is all done in writing and is negotiable. I would make this recommendation. Find a good Realtor with a good moral compass. If you explain to them your concern and they are as good as they say they are they will figure out a way to make the seller pay their fee or simply take what they are given within reason as we do have to make a living. I hope this helps you and good luck in your search!

How can agents prevent others from using listings to SCAM potential renters and buyers?

Answer

The issue is not with the advertisement it is with the consumer reading the advertisement. It is no different then a person looking up a diagnosis on WebMD to find out when they go the the doctor they have something different. Point being All Realtors need to do a better job encouraging the consumer to use agents to help find properties for reasons exactly like stated above. Scams. Peace of Mind. Security. These are part of the fiduciary responsibilities of a Realtor. We need to do a better job of holding Realtors to a higher standard so that the general public does not feel they can do a better job on the internet. If the consumer truly believes there will be a benefit of visiting a Realtor, as there are benefits of letting a doctor diagnose an issue and not the internet, these scams will be less and less effective.

buying a bigger house.

Answer

Since it is uncommon to use a lawyer in florida I am going to keep this answer short and sweet. Get a lawyer and a realtor!  Do not attempt to move from one home to another without making sure your contract states explicitly you will not be left homeless! Good luck with your move make sure you call a Realtor who knows a good real estate attorney

Rent to Own

Answer

Its a good option if you can find a homeowner willing to cooperate in a owner financing sale. Normally you would need a form of down payment plus additional money on top of the agreed upon rent. It may be easier to Rent UNTIl you can OWN. Just take that down payment money and stick it away as well as any extra money you can save in order to prepare yourself for closing costs and home improvement. The common misconception when dealing with rent to own is that your rent payments go towards a mortgage or down payment. That is IN Correct. The rent god toward your current living arrangement then additional money would go towards a down payment. Good luck in your search!

can i refi on a house that i inharited but has a morgage already

Answer

I would recommend speaking to a mortgage professional to see if you qualify for a mortgage. I think it would benefit you also to figure out if the home is worth refinancing or selling and possibly taking the proceeds into a different property. There are a lot of options when you have inherited a home that you should speak with a Lawyer, a Mortgage person, an Accountant, and a Real Estate professional first before making any moves to figure out what your most profitable option is.

How do I list my House for Sale by Owner listed here?

Answer

unfortunately your only option is to Create a Zillow profile an offer a make me move price. You should list your property with an agent It looks like a good one. Realtors on average get 2.5% more then an owner. We basically pay for ourselves. Not to mention wouldn't you rather have someone other then yourself to blame if things do not go right?

Buying My First Home.

Answer

The first step was admitting you need help! Congrats you're on your way. Next I would recommend contacting a bank or lending institution for a mortgage pre approval letter. From there you will have an established budget. I would pick towns sort of in the manner of which you picked colleges. Reach towns, and guarantee towns. This will keep it exciting and also manage the stress that's often found when looking for a home. Don't forget to smile and remember you're going to live there day in and day out so make sure you love it and do not settle.
