It will just depend on the terms the owner wishes. The higher the monthly rent the more chnce of that being part of the lease terms. Each lease type is tailored for different circumstances. It is a matter of negoiation.... more
Zillow.com is a good place that gets a good amount of traffic, if you have twitter you can tweet an ad and/or post as a facebook status. There is also backpage.com, but I don't know if that is a well used page in this area, though there are some listings there. Feel free to email me the info on your mom's house for our consideration too. Email at email@example.com... more
Both, there are scenarios for both options and without listing them here I can think of hundreds of reasons for both. There are probably a lot of first time buyers out there that don039;t have all the money down but, could come up with the closing costs. Then my next question is - are we being responsible by doing 100% financing? Isn't that a part of why we are in the current market crisis. Buyers who had nothing at stake and walked away when the going got tough?

Open houses don't sell houses - they are good for getting buyers for other properties and getting neighbors to look at the property (some of them will want to sell too). Saturday or Sunday - does not matter.
If selling by owner - open houses could sometimes be even dangerous - because there is no financial screening done by a realtor, and, depending on the area, this could be downright dangerous in our economy (some criminals scouting for a break in).

I think that is something you will have weigh for yourself. What is the cost of your mortgage? How long was your home on the market before you got the offer? What is the average time on the market for homes in your area? They say, "bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."... more
You probably mean what is referred to in the article attached to the link below. Don't even begin to go into any kind arrangement such as this without a good RE attorney. Under this scenario, you are a landlord still being responsible for the property and taxes, including income. Should the potential buyer default, you then have to worry about getting them out hoping there is something left of the house. BTW, I really dig the Bel Airs

Jan, we are selling homes with land when they are priced according to the market dictation. Several factors would be involved in determining that actual value and a good Realtor you trust will sure be glad to consult with you on that.... more
Unfortunately this happens quite often. There is not much that can be done if the contract has a mortgage contingency clause in it. As long as the buyer has met the deadline they can't be held accountable.... more
list it with a Missouri realtor in the area that the land is located in, however with an email address like yours, it sounds like a spamming email address, so I would get a different email address first so you come across as more creditable before you talk to someone and quite frankly I would start by contacting the real estate offices directly rather than waiting for them to contact me if you are serious..... more
