Why Zillow is not worth following
I wonder how many Zillow accounts were created by people who were just that pissed off they had to go online and get all keyboard crazy on Zillow.
Buying a home without going through a realtor
Sure a buyer doesn't typically pay for a Realtor however this is a For Sale by Owner and there is no guarantee that the seller will pay a buyer's agent fees. The buyer should become familiar with the title/escrow process and have an Escrow Officer who is willing to hold their hand through the process. I just bought my own home a few days ago and even as a Realtor it is stressful. I couldn't imagine doing this myself if I wasn't educated, trained and had years of experience under by belt.
"Seller Assist" equates to "REA Representing Un-Qualified Buyer"?
You should write your congresspeople about this one. FHA policies on down payments and closing credits are in their hands.
high voltage lines
High voltage lines are NOT ideal. With Real Estate, location is the #1 factor and being located under or near high voltage lines violates rule #1.
Why does Zillow offer Zestimates in area where they are "unable to compute Zestimate accuracy"?
Zestimates effect the values to those who's minds are so limited as to ignore the facts right in front of them. Zestimates are not perfect but they are getting better. Zillow is the first of its kind Real Estate tool and people are up in arms about it not being perfect. Believe me, I have been a member here for may years and have seen HUGE improvements over that time. Any agent in a transaction will show you FACTUAL sales history and an accurate and relevant market analysis. If it is different than zillow....who are you going to trust, the LOCAL Real Estate professional with Facts and evidence in front of you? Or a less than 10 yr old website that is trying to serve thousands of markets at once? Give it time. In less than 10 years I bet Zillow will be one of the worlds largest Real Estate tools.
I have zero debt, no credit score, almost 30k in savings, make 3.5k/month, Can I buy a house & how?
Not being in debt may seem like a good thing. But to creditors it is not. They don't make money off people who don't borrow money. Believe it or not, your credit score is a signal to creditors which lets them know how good of an investment you are to them. They are interested in making money off you. That is all.
Should I believe my realtor?
Seems legit to me. People are prone to assume shady stuff is going on and rarely it is. This market is extremely active and you have to exceed your own expectations to get an offer accepted these days.
Found mold on walk through, can we walk away?
Yes. They can sue you. You can be sued for just about anything. Whether or not they will win is up to the laws in your area and both sides of the story. To me it seems like you had several opportunities to investigate. Through inspections, disclosure and final walkthrough. If you walk away, you should lose your deposit. Nothing more. However you are now in a very good position if you are truly willing to walk. Throw in a last minute repair request to the seller. They may just do it to close this deal.
Our home is for sale and is on the MLS, however it does not appear anywhere on Zillow. The address
Possibly because your agent isn't a member on Zillow, nor does his/her Broker participate with Zillow? If you just listed your home it may take up to 48 hours for your home to appear on zillow after appearing in your local MLS.
I don't have a lease and the landlord sold the house how long do we have to move out
In California you have 60 days if you have been in the home more than 1 year. 30 days if less than 1 yr.
