I have been following your listings for the last couple of weeks now, and have read most of your information on the ins and outs of PofS shortfalls / opportunities and have a quick question on the list price. Where does this number come from? Is it negotiable?
Also are home inspections possible? or better still home inspection reports already completed available to view? Will a bank do a mortgage pre approval based on a Pof S. property?
At any rate. I am getting closer to finalizing my separation agreement and will be buying shortly thereafter and need to ensure I am not wasting my time studying Pof S.
Any feedback would be helpful.
Thank you for your real estate inquiry. These are all very good questions!The list price is typically market value and often true market value, read about both here:
Yes, you can do a home inspection. The bank does not want any problems before or after the closing, they just want the property sold and off their books, thus they will often accept offers conditional upon home inspection. But, if you are in a competing situation, the bank will likely accept the highest non-conditional offer. This is understandable.
Yes, they will also accept a conditional upon financing offer, but again, if you are in competing offers, the best offer will often be accepted before a conditional offer. Thus, you need to get your financing in order ahead of time.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or if there is anything else I can help you with.
Thank you again for contacting me and I will do my best to help you with your real estate needs,
