I am interested in selling my own home, can I show it in Zillow,?

Answer
Sure you can. Just use the "make me move" feature. I have mine on there. I'm a Realtor so I can list it too.

Seller cancellation

Response
So the seller won't get enough net proceeds from their sale price to pay their closing costs including their Realtor! They are going to bring some of their own savings to settlement? That means it really wasn't about the inspection issues at all. That's troubling. Watch out for more surpirses. Good luck!

Can you get a mortgage for under $50,000?

Answer
My mortgage company has done it for one of my buyer clients. They bought FHA and the house price was $56,000 so the mortgage was slightly above $50,000. I have a listing for $29,000 and they said they will do that one, if I can find a buyer/investor.

Seller cancellation

Response
It appears the seller is balking at having repairs made prior to settlement. If you can hold off on these repairs then maybe the seller will agree to go forward. I am confused about why the mortgage company needs to be involved in a minor repair. It was probably a mistake to involve them, unless these repairs are safety related or occupancy related. You seemed to indicate they were optional and minor.

Can't buy a house til 3 more months...will the rates stay the same or will it rise dramatically?

Answer
Hello Janet,I am excited to announce that Coldwell Banker Preferred Mortgage is offering an interest rate "cap" for our buyer clients that will garantee your mortgage rate will remain below the cap - which is 1/4 percent above the current rate at the time you choose to cap it. Of course if rates fall, you get the lower rate. Give me a call. I'd love to work with you to get your rate capped!

I gave up ownership.
Clearly you don't have my house on here. Everything is wrong.

Zillow, you have the wrong ZIP code and city for this home.
The house is in Malvern, ZIP 19355. You show it in West Chester at the adress of a much smaller house.

What do I do to correct the township and zip code and location of my house?
my house is shown in zip 19380 instead od 19355. It's near the border but a dozen or more houses west are correct and mine and a neighbor to the east are wrongly zipped.

The house I am buying suddenly moved from one ZIP code to another
The data for 802 W king Rd 19355 is now shown for the house at 802 King Rd 19380 - 3 miles away! The house in ZIP code19355 vanished from the street - except the aerial view of the neighborhood still shows it! The value has also dropped!
