The bonus web deal is an offer being made. If you make a counter offer (lower amount) everything in the deal can change and then must be agreed to and signed off by both parties.
Zillow also updates their listings as the agent enters the home into their past sale history. So if an agent has a settlement they need to enter the home into the system as sold. Immediately, the home will have the sold information on it.
First I would suggest hiring a top real estate agent. I suggest that you research and pick a top agent that actually markets homes. If I have a client that is outside of my area I research for them and give them a couple of top producers. There are a lot of agents that do not do much when trying to sell a home. Do research and interview several agents. Then pick a winner.
Technically all you need is a deed to transfer owner ship. However, in today's real estate world, it is a lot more complicated. Do you have a more specific question?
Real estate everywhere is supply and demand driven. If you wait to put your home on the market when more homes are listed then there is more supply and prices arent as high. Demand drives prices up. List when there are fewer homes for sale
When you price the home at market value you sometimes get bidding wars athat drive the price up. The bidding war may not have happened if it was overpriced in hopes of getting an offer. And then people would compare your home to other homes that are priced correctly... this is not good.
This should not have gotten that far. Loan under writers should have picked that up sooner.
I know a great agent in Allentown, let me know and I will give you their contact information. [Removed by Zillow Moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy.] is my direct email.If you have a particular question please post it as a reply and we will be glad to answer it for you.
I would recommend that if that is the case that you get yourself a buyers agent and not use the listing agent if you are interested in that particular house. You need someone who is willing to work for you.
In real estate everything is negotiable. However, in this case, what is done is done and unless both sides agree to the change you are locked in. Depending on your state laws, you may be able to go after the buyer should they back out for no reason. Selling your home is stressful for the buyer and seller. In most cases the sale goes as planned and only in rare instances are there problems with the sale. The important thing for your agent and you is to stay in the loop so you know what is happening with the loan and buyer. Good luck to you and congratulations!
