Looking for a home in the past few years has been difficult for almost all buyers. Even those who have all-cash offers, waive every contingency, and offer well over asking price have been losing out on their dream homes.It’s been so frustrating that it can bring you to tears at times…literally!According to this Yahoo article, over half of home buyers cry at least once during their home search. Some of those surveyed claim to have cried up to four times during the process! And just because some people weren’t brought to tears doesn’t mean they didn’t find the process stressful—90% of them said at least one aspect of it was stressful.As stressful as the recent market has been, this isn’t a new issue. Buying a home always ranks as one of the most stressful life events in a person’s life. A...

More sellers want to stay in their home after closing, sometimes for weeks or months. In many cases, they want to do it for a fraction of the fair market rent or even for free. Agreeing to their request gives some buyers an edge over the competition in a bidding war, but it comes with risks.The Post-Closing Occupancy Agreement allows the Seller to remain in the property for a designated period after the Buyer takes ownership of the property. As easy as a post- occupancy agreement sounds, there are serious implications arising out of a Seller requesting to remain in occupancy of residential property after the Seller conveys title to the Buyer.When the seller continues to live in the home after closing, all the risks lie with the buyer. What could go wrong?  Plenty…. How long will the sel...
