Well, sure, but. Only the Board can enforce violations, and the homeowner has the right to a hearing.The problem with contacting the homeowner is that they may not care, in which case, wasted effort for all involved. Or, they may care, but what are they to do - pursue eviction? I wouldn't give that hope much of a chance!It usually takes too much trouble to contact a director, and the property manager's contact info is probably right on the listing. So, I suggest that if you want to effect change, contact the property manager.
Staging a home is like dressing for a job interview. Maybe, as an employer, you'd prefer to see the applicant in their casual weekend wear, smokes in one hand, beer in the other, t-shirt falling just above the navel. But as an applicant, you want to "dress for success."When it comes to real estate, some buyers would prefer to see the house sloppy and poorly presented, but why is that? Because a property that isn't "dressed for success" isn't going to command top dollar. So, it really comes down to: do you want to give some buyer a bargain, or get the best deal for yourself?
You could send a letter to the condo's property management company.
I'm interested in how this turns out, zinger. My guess is that your attorney (not the one handling the sale) will advise you to file a complaint against this bigot after the sale closes and he gets the commission that he earned by fulfilling the listing agreement. I don't think the commission is subject to forfeit because of offensive behavior. The new broker might want to fire him, too!
Please don't confuse "title" with deed. A deed is an instrument that transfers title. There's only one original deed, and that's at the clerk of courts. You get a copy. All should be well!
I don't think mikecis is really a "pro," or they would know the answer, which is different than the one I gave. If you are a licensee, your firm will have a policy in place that will apply to your obligations as a principal in a real estate transaction.
Rent-to-own is basically preying on the credit-challenged.If you've got credit, you'd get a loan and buy outright. If you don't have credit, you're paying for an option that you will probably never want to - or be able to - exercise. If you don't rehab your credit, you lose the money you've invested in the deal; if you do rehab your credit, you're going to look around and what you could have bought if only you weren't mired in this stupid rent-to-own deal you got yourself into!
Well, mikecis, you can sell your property "by owner," without a brokerage. When it comes to buying, you have no entitlement to the commission, which is established in contract between the seller and the brokerage. You can ask, but they don't have to agree.All the best,
How do you predict the future? It helps to have a lot of data - if I show up at the onramp to the interstate at a certain time, can I expect to glide on in, or do I hit a traffic controller?There is a "reverse comp" method, which is to pick a sales price, and see what options buyers in that price range have.
The appraisal is just one person's opinion. It's an educated opinion, but it's just an opinion. The buyers will decide what the value is, and I would list it slightly above the best comps that I could find, and expect to negotiate with buyers.All the best,
