I would like to know approximately what my home is worth.

Answer

The best way to find out how much your property is worth is to contact a local agent and request a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA).  Most agents can give a ballpark without a visit.  However, it is idea to walk the property when doing these types of Analysis to see what makes your home stand out.  Last but not least, the are mostly done free.If you need official documentation, you can ask a bank or home appraiser to perform an appraisal.  They provide a more detail report and often charge 200-400 for an appraisal.

Renegotiation contract after inspection

Answer

It never hurts to ask for a lower price.   I general recommend that negotations be completed before the option period expires.  It gives the buyer more leverage.  Furthermore, what is the worse thing the seller can say... No?   They may say "No', however, that doesn't mean you loose the contract.  If you are still within your option period, you may way out their response and review your numbers to see if it is worth moving forward.Also, keep in mind that if the house appraises for more than the offer... that can sometimes offset the purchase price to make up for addional funds

Release Of Agent

Due to a violation of our contract, we have released our agent, Fred Loden ( from Partners in Real Estate ) from selling our house.  However, he has expressed his typical tantrum and refuses to remove our listing from zillow.  Since we own the house, can we not request it be removed as false advertisement?
