Buying sooner than later and I have no idea what I'm doing!

Answer
These are all great questions. And the answers are really a matter of opinion.What I would do is call a buyer's agent. Regardless of this house or others. Find someone with whom you connect with and will help you sort out all your questions.Talk to them about the banks in your area and get pre-qualified. that way you both know where you stand financially and can start looking at homes more seriously.As for the HUD home- this means it's a government foreclosure and in order to put an offer you need to be associated with a real estate broker.The best plan of action is to call an agent who will be representing YOUR interests and take it from there.Best of luck to you!

if you show comp(comparable) to bank, can you buy house cheaper?

Answer
It really depends on the bank you are working with and your relationship. Actually it depends on your agent's relationship. You really need to be working with an agent to help you cut through the red tape.In New York, we cannot directly communicate with the underwriter. But If you have true data then it would be in your best interest to find an agent you can trust and who has a relationship with the bank. have them submit the comps and pray they will review it.Good luck!

can you backup from an offer, if the seller has not signed the contract yet

Answer
They Key word is  you made an "offer" but you have second thoughts. Not to worry- this is where your attorney will help if backing out becomes a hassle.and don't feel like you are alone- many, many buyers- have "buyer's remorse" especially when they are ready to make a purchase and the house is a FSBO- or For Sale By Owner.What you probably learned by now is that using a buyer's agent is free for you and you are properly represented. So when it comes time to make an offer and submit a contract your real estate professional is representing YOU.Now there are a few details to outline- the owner did not accept the offer. Was your offer made with a written legal New York State document and did your attorney review it. In many cases- you will have a few places you can walk away. The attorney initially has 3 business days from when the time the contract is fully executed [or when both parties sign] to reject this contract for no reason.If this has gone further- the next area is property inspection. Did you allow yourself time to have a home inspection? In short- as a real estate professional we work with attorneys to make sure this does not happen to you.Feel free to call or reach out to us if you need more assistance and good luck!

Our home is listed for sale on zillow. How do I get it on the multiple listings

Answer
The best way to have your home on the MLS- or to "go public" is to have a Licensed Real Estate Agent list it. There are many advantages to working with a Realtor. The first is peace of mind- your agent is trained to ensure you have all the legal documents necessary to properly "represent" you during the sale of your home. Second, your realtor will work with you to develop a strategy to market and have your house shown to as many qualified buyers AND buyer agents.And third- working with a Realtor is FREE until you sell your home.[then you pay a % for the work they did to expose, market and negotiate the best deal for you]. If you use a discount broker- they will charge you an upfront fee to sell your house on your own and just enter you in the MLS.Good luck!
