FHA is only people with bad Credit?

FHA can help anyone, but you'll pay a mortgage insurance. There is a program in Virginia VHDA, you can get a conventional loan with 3% down payment NO mortgage insurance. I teach classes on that.www.Freehomebuyerclass.org. Or just feel free contact me directly.

interested in listing with Auction.com . Any experiences on the sell side?

Answer

you can try it, but there are fees involved and buyers usually pay some fees as well. Not a lot of regular buyers want to buy something from an auction with out guarantees and pay buyer premium. You can try sale by owner, but from my experience, you'll waste time and money. Your goal should find a good realtor who can sell it for the most money in the shortest time. Realtors do this job every day and they know what bumps on the road expect.

Buying Real Estate Agent obligation

Answer

Choose someone who you want to work with. Agents can't know every neighborhood, but it doesn't take a lot of sience to learn statistics. Hiring an agent you are "buying" an experience. If you are not happy with your agnet, please her/him know and she /he can get a referral fee from the agent you choose.
