Realtors Should Be Attending Home Inspections With Their ...

John there is no risk for a a Realtor attending a home inspection! Thatís hogwash! I completely disagree. Itís the Realtors conduct at the inspection that puts them at risk, not their presence. Know when to open your mouth and when not to! If you want to act like a home inspector then you are opening yourself up to liability NOT otherwise. The home inspection is an integral part of the home buying process that consumers should have representation at.  (Jul 2, 2010 | post #3)

Adamus29 - 1st of all there is a big difference between disclosure and non disclosure! A home owner who gets caught with their home tied up with an investor who will never get a bank to approval their deal is asking for a foreclosure. In the above scenerio there was no chance the bank would ever approve the deal. A bank is not going to give away a home for 50 cents on the dollar. Short sales can be slightly under market value and the bank will work with you in most cases. Banks DON'T give properties away in short sales.  (May 1, 2009 | post #22)

Chris of course they discount. Banks don't want to hold property but everyone assumes incorrectly that the norm is what you see on the late night infomercials where they say you can buy bank owned property at 50 cents on the dollar. As a general rule this is not the case.  (Mar 16, 2009 | post #17)

Home Selling

Short Sale Scammers We Buy Houses

Exactly you don't know me and I do know my way around short sales Chris. It is obviously you that is clueless if you think banks generally accept a 35% discount on the market value. Sorry pal it doesn't happen! The home owner did not avoid foreclosure because they got involved with a scam artist. The person came off as someone interested in buying her home and then put her home on the market without her knowledge illegally. I am not going to explain it again.  (Mar 4, 2009 | post #14)

Tommy that site is a joke! If you think selling a home in a challenging market like the one we are in is going to be accomplished by just throwing it in MLS you are sadly mistaken.  (Feb 9, 2009 | post #11)

Brett the person who got them to sign listing contract represented that they wanted to purchase the home....NOT list the home as a short sale. There is a huge difference. Option contract or not this was fraud!!  (Feb 9, 2009 | post #10)

Grant you are missing the point. The seller thought the person was interested in buying the home. She was not interested in signing a listing agreement with them. There is no point submitting an offer for 25 cents on the dollar in a short sale either. The bank is never going to go for it. This person was never interested in buying the home unless they could steal it. They were interested in having the owner sign a listing agreement. This was flat out WRONG!  (Jan 28, 2009 | post #7)

Jeff - In Massachusetts nothing allows a person to list a persons home without their consent. You need a signed contract to do that. The option contract you mention is nothing more than a scandalous piece of garbage that these bozo's have people sign without the person knowing what they are actually getting themselves into. It is just the opposite when you are in financial difficulties...a confused mind says YES. Unfortunately people don't understand these documents otherwise they would never sign them.  (Jan 5, 2009 | post #5)

There is no balance in this home. This kind of kitchen looks out of place in a 100+ year old home.  (Sep 10, 2008 | post #1)
