Can i use realtors photos for fsby since contract with her expired? Photos still on zillow.

Answer

Technically you shouldn't without permission. I have been the number one Realtor in the La Verne area for the past couple of years and would be interested in speaking with you about why the other agent didn't sell the house and how much you need out of it to make sense. If you would be willing to have a brief conversation regarding my marketing approach and an analysis on your property I think I could give you some good information whether you listed it or not. I also have an interior decorator that I can offer a free consultation with and professional photographer in the case you did want to give it a shot at listing. Depending on the property and the situation, I have a couple of different listing options we could further discuss which may help you net the most money. Best of luck to you whichever route you choose!Nick Abbadessa

what does make me move mean?

Answer

This is a feature that Zillow has that allows homeowner's to let people know that for the make me move price, they would be willing to sell. Most of them are a lot higher than the actual value of the homes, however some homeowners actually use the feature to pre-market or try to sell by owner.

Selling A Home

Answer

Hi,I am a local Realtor to you and I am familiar with the Lewis homes that were built in Chino at that time. To answer your questions specifically:1. If you are unsure about the availability date of your new purchase you should try and figure out a ballpark date. If selling is an option and you have somewhere temporarily to live, you would be in an ideal position to purchase non-contingent and may have the first shot at your number one pick. If that isn't an option you may consider listing and trying to make the sale contingent upon closing concurrently on a property of your choice and hope that you don't lose your buyer before your property of interest becomes available.2. An option to the above contingency could be as you suggest. You could push for a longer escrow period or you could propose a rent back from your buyer after closing. They are both common options with slight drawbacks to the buyer of your property. If the buyer decides on a long escrow they may incur fees to extend their interest rate lock for over 30-45 days. If they went with the rent back they are usually limited to 60 days (if it is in the purchase contract and the lender is seeing it) or they may just not want to wait. Also, a drawback for you on a rent back is that you will be paying the new buyers PITI payment which meant their full loan payment, Principal and Interest, plus Taxes and Insurance. It may be worth the extra money to you if it means getting the property you really want in the long run.3. The costs you will incur to sell are standard. Of course real estate commissions which can range, transfer taxes, HOA transfer fees, escrow, title insurance, termite clearance, home warranty for the buyer (customary), demand fees for your loan, etc. It will usually come out to the commission amount plus an additional .75-1%I would love the opportunity to interview with you regarding listing and marketing your property.4. Zillow ranges on their zestimates. Ideally you need a professional to pull comparable sales, view your property and know the neighborhood and market to accurately price your property.I hope this helps! Please feel free to contact me at any time!
