Real Estate AGENT question, PLEASE?
Should I use the same real estate agent for the short sale on my home as the one I am going to have my mom/step-dad buy a condo through? It might be a conflict of interest, because my parents are divorced and BOTH remarried…
I went through a divorce last year, am currently unemployed, and I am not in a financial position to keep my home any longer, I have already missed 2 payments, and although I have the money to PAY the last two month’s payments, my parents have told me to quit dumping my cash into my property when I am upside down in it.
My MOM & step-dad have offered to buy a condominium for me, to help me get back up on my feet, and all I would have to pay is HOA dues and regular monthly bills. My DAD (not my step-dad) referred me to a real estate agent who is a family friend who was very informative about what my options are on my home, and I think he would be good to short sell my house. My mom NEVER talks to my Dad, (parents are re-married) Should I do the short sale through the family friend of my DAD’S, and get another agent to help my STEP-DAD find a condominium for me?
Someone told me that it makes better business sense to use the SAME AGENT for everything, what should I do?
Thanks for your input. =)
