No, unless specifically mentioned in the contract for such a scenario. Typically, if a property is appraised below (not slightly below) contract price, the lender would ask the buyer to come up with the additional funds only if the lending ratio exceeds the guidelines under which the buyer was approved. Buyer can 1) Review the appraisal report for errors, omissions and provide comps to revise the appraisal, 2) Request a re-appraisal at his own cost, 3) Negotiate the price or incentive with the seller to cover the shortage or 4) Do nothing in which case the lender will back out and the deal will fall through.... more

I would suggest consulting with a Realtor first. A Realtor can do a comparative marketing analysis on your home and give a good recommendation of a starting listing price. Then list your home in several real estate sites such as HAR and Trulia.
Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

homeowners ("for sale by owners") cannot list their homes for sale on trulia
only agent-listed homes can be posted here
trulia doesn't make this clear, and you're not the first consumer who is confused by it.

You need to contact a title company. They'll tell you what paperwork is needed. Frankly, it's a bit awkward to ask professionals who earn their living selling real estate for advice on selling a property without using a Realtor for either side of the transaction..... more
I'm not quite sure that is correct. Last month Houston had a record number of homes sold in the city's history. It is true we are currently at about a 10 year supply low in terms of housing inventory. I hope this helps.

Yes. Since all are on the deed, all must be included in any sales contract. However, any of the parties has a right to sell out his or her interest to any of the the others at a price that is agreeable (fair market value). In all probability, an Appraisal would need to be ordered to help determine Fair Market Value, should there be disagreement between the siblings over the value agreed to. Good luck!... more
Talk to a representative at a title agency about the laws and specific conditions of your question. They are very prompt about recording deeds and making them legal for a reasonable price and can move swiftly if you have paperwork in order.
Sounds like you may have to talk to an estate lawyer about the circumstances though.... more
Typically when you probate the will, the executor will get letters testamentary issued by the court.. This should give them the right to arrange for the sale in NC.
Some jurisdictions may require a "mini" probate that reaffirms the FL probate.
Typically your realtor and the closing attorney will handle the paperwork for you.
If you need a great realtor in NC we'll be happy to give you a recommendation.... more
Hi Dalton. Good question.
Because every market is different across the US, I would suggest you first speak to a reputable REALTOR in your area who can give you a comparable (comp) of your home in today's market. Home prices are continuing to decline in some places, but maintaining their value in others (and believe it or not in some places, increasing due to buyers' demands). Should you be in a declining market, you can look at the situation this way: Even with netting less than you'd like to on your current home, you certainly could make up for it with the purchase of another home and the potential "deal" on it you could get. Remember, some of the richest people in the world have made their big money when times were bad for folks. It makes sense when you think like a business person. Best of luck to you!... more

Forms You’ll Need to Sell Your Home
1.Property disclosure form. This form requires you to reveal all known defects to your property. Check with your state government to see if there is a special form required in your state.
2.Purchasers access to premises agreement. This agreement sets conditions for permitting the buyer to enter your home for activities such as measuring for draperies before you move.
3.Sales contract. The agreement between you and the seller on terms and conditions of sale. Again, check with your state real estate department to see if there is a required form.
4.Sales contract contingency clauses. In addition to the contract, you may need to add one or more attachments to the contract to address special contingencies — such as the buyer’s need to sell a home before purchasing yours.
5.Pre- and post-occupancy agreements. Unless you’re planning on moving out and the buyer moving in on the day of closing, you’ll need an agreement on the terms and costs of occupancy once the sale closes.
6.Lead-based paint disclosure pamphlet. If your home was built before 1978, you must provide the pamphlet to all sellers. You must also have buyers sign a statement indicating they received the pamphlet.
