How do I find a realtor who will list my home for 5%.

Answer

Jensros02-Good Evening.Plenty of answers here, I'm not in a position to judge, nor would I, I only wanted add, everything is negotiable, this is true with real estate. Not really going to question why you want 5 instead of 6%, but maybe it ties into your bottom line, either way, I would interview a couple of agents, find the best fit for you and your property, there may be bigger or smaller concerns, that would alter who or why you go with them. I hope that helps.Have a BEAUTIFUL night.-Shawn, REALTOR, AZ.

Is there any lender out there that will approve a FHA loan after a short sale?

Answer

Puchungaa,Good Evening.I would speak to a couple different lenders, as I am not one,  however, many of my lenders can PQ a buyer, after a short sale. If I remember correctly, there was in 2013, I think it's still around a program that you cna buy 1 day after your SS with 25% down. Many don't have that in the bank, but my point is there are programs, that do not take 3 years, much of it depends on how you go about getting yourself back into buying position. I hope that helps.Have a BEAUTIFUL night.-Shawn, REALTOR, AZ.

Ed67000,Good Evening.Plenty of excellent data within said replies. I would only add, wherever/however, you list your property on MLS, make sure you have as many details about the property, including photos, so you can upload said data as quickly and professionally as possible, you also need to write up a description, explaining your home.

What is the next step after I find a house I am interested in?

Answer

Sandyhickox-Good Morning.Great question, I would reach out to a local lender, if you do not know/have one, perhaps visit a local lending firm, bank, credit union, etc. and or locate a local top rated REALTOR, if you do not have onealready. If you do not, make sure you ask them all a couple of questions, in reference to their field of knowledge as it pertains to location, skills, experience best matching your needs. Then try to view that and like property, taking notes/pictures, so that you have a feel for the process. Your lender and REALTOR will be there to "protect and guide" you, however, you will want to be a part of the process.I hope that helps.Have a BEAUTIFUL day.-Shawn

options when buyers appraisal comes in below acepted offer

Answer

I vest,Good Morning.Most of the options have been addressed, being that all parties, should want to complete this transaction, there is nothing unacceptable with renegotiating terms. Splitting the difference, one way of the other is more often than not, the most common way to go and is the quickest path to close, if buyers funds are available. I hope this helps.Have a BEAUTIFUL day.-Shawn
