how do I add photos to my zillow listing ??

Answer

You can go to your favorite page click on Owner Tools, then go to Edit home facts.One important fact is that there is a max size for  each picture you upload. If they are too big you can re-size at a recommended 180 x 160pixels. Hope this helps.

How long does it take to update added info on here . i edited my house .

Answer

It shouldn't take that long unless the information you've input conflicts with public records.You might want to try to include in your description words like "fixer" or "Needs TLC'. I can walk you through to update the price, if that is your goal. Also I can run some comparable sales and listings to check the accuracy of the value.All the best

can the seller back out just because they only want to use there lender

Answer

No! You decide which lender to use. It is your loan and you are going to make the payments. Buyers can choose the institution that  will give the best interest and terms of a loan.Also,as long as you have proven to be credit worthy and approved by both lenders its up to you and you decide.This should not jeopardize the transaction. Best of luck.

Do banks counter offer the origional offer made buy the buyer? Who does the offer go through?

Answer

Here in CA. If its a short sale the seller has to accept your offer first and then the listing agent submits the offer plus the pertinent documentation to the lender or servicing co. for investor approval. On REO's(banked owned) properties the lender has asset management companies dealing with their offers, or a specific department that handles foreclosed propeties.When an agent receives a listing this information is giving to him(her) for contact purposes.Hope this help.

If a home is listed for foreclosure what is a realistic offer price (what % off the list price)?

Answer

 It has been my experience doing BPO's for different asset management companies that  a property that is listed in this market be it Short Sale or an REO, and the few standard sales found, all want the fair market value price for their property. The huge problem that I am encountering is that these listings are priced very low to get a multiple offer situation going on, that way there are many offers,  the best is picked, then submitted for approval. Why is this a problem, because if a buyer is not educated properly with this market dynamic, then this buyer will wait and wait for an approval (average 4-9 months), thinking that they have bought a bargain when actually they will be hit with a counter offer for fair market value price.This is also another reason  why you see that a listing goes up in price after the agent finishes with the negotiation. Every one wants full and fair market price.In conclusion, if you want to put in a low ball offer and have the time to waste,do so, this is your priority, but if you really see yourself living in this new home and enjoying the benefit that it will bring to your life. Offer the best offer that you can give at a fair market value price.

I know my city better than you, why are you comparing my home to properties completely unlike mine?

Response

This is a valid concern, specially in today's market dynamic. The value on your home is going to be affected by the following on sold sales.-What is in the immediate  area, less than the 1 mile radius.-Comparable sales in the last 6 months.-Room, bedroom and bath counts.-Square footage and lot size.-Curb appeal and condition of property.Keeping this in mind, will help you pin point the value of your home.A good appraiser  will include these factors at the time of doing the report, which will include value adjustments to conclude on a true fair market value on your property.

Showing property

Response

Very un-professional, a buyer's agent should always accompany their clients.This is why we are a Realtor, there are rules and regulations to follow. The best way to avoid any liabilities from agents that give out codes is to ALWAYS a supra lock box as access to a listing. This way you know with date and time, who had access to the property.

Do I still have a chance?

Answer

Don't give up, you still have a chance. There are many factors involved in a transaction. One or many may fail, if you are in a back up position, you will be the first to know. Good luck!
