I agree with Randy. This would depend on the state you are referring to. Any local title company can answer that for you.
Most sites will let you advertise your home for rent for free. Zillow is one of them. =)
I would definitely try to find another agent. Where are you looking to buy? If in Oklahoma, I would love to help you! Also, on Zillow, there is the "Find a Pro" section in the toolbar up top. You can read the reviews and that will help make a better decision for you hopefully. Good luck!
I agree with Eve. If you love the house, resubmit your offer at the full asking price and see what happens. Dealing with a bank is completely different than dealing with an individual seller.
A cashier's check or wired funds would be the acceptable means of payment.
The real estate agent will be responsible for filling out and submitting all of the necessary paperwork if they bring you a buyer, however, rules vary by state.
Lenders use your credit history to get an idea of what loan you qualify for. Good credit will help get you a lower rate and a larger mortgage.
