Selling An Empty Home vs. A Staged One
 
Dear Phyllis,

Realtor Responsibilities
Dear Phyllis,
  Four months ago, our home was in escrow and it was a nightmare. Our buyer’s original offer was a cash offer. He then opted to get a loan and the appraisal came in low. All of this developed after we had been in escrow for three weeks. We had already relocated [...]

Short Sale Timelines
Dear Phyllis,
  Three weeks ago, we made an offer for a short sale listing. The seller’s agent acknowledged receipt and said she forwarded our offer to the bank.  She says she still hasn’t heard from the bank and as you can imagine, we are anxious. We have a $28,000 deposit just sitting in [...]

Dear Phyllis,
   My parents moved out of state two years ago and converted their home to a rental.  To avoid capital gains tax, my accountant thinks my parents should sell since it was their primary residence for at least 2 of the last 5 years from the (anticipated) date of selling.  [...]

Contingent Offers
Dear Phyllis,
   While interest rates remain low, we hope to buy a larger home.  We have made a couple offers but keep getting turned down because the other buyers we are competing with don’t have a sale contingency. I know it’s difficult to secure a home because they are selling so quickly.  If [...]

Selling As Is
Dear Phyllis,
   I am moving my mother into an assisted living facility. Her home is 70 years old but most everything is in working order – just old. I want to sell her home AS IS, I don’t want to paint, or even clean or empty the home.  In other words, I [...]

Open House Theft
Dear Phyllis,
Three years ago, our home was on the market but because we listed a bit high it didn’t sell.  During the first open house, my Rolex was stolen. I didn’t leave it out in plain sight – it was in my dresser drawer.  When I told my Realtor® about it, he [...]

Septic Inspections
Dear Phyllis,
   I am planning on selling my La Cañada home in the next year or two. I have lived in my 70 year old home for 20 years and never had problems with my septic tank.  I am located in the sewer district four and there are no foreseeable plans for me [...]
