Here is a great video on getting pre qualified for a home loan. Make sure you know how much you can spend on a home before you start searching for a house. Give me a call if you have any questions!
Buyers should always be at the home inspection. Sellers are usually the ones not there.
A good home inspector will not only show you what needs to be fixed on your potential new home but will show you how to maintain the value and quality of your property with maintenance and basic skill and care while informing you of all the important details you should know.... more
It is always the buyers choice on who they choose to use as a home inspector. My buyers have had excellent service and professionalism with All American Home Inspection. Brian Reitzel is highly knowledgeable in inspections and fairly priced. http://www.allamericanhomeinspect.com/... more
I have a seller that may possibly be willing to do that on a new construction condo on Brice Prairie, but I'm pretty sure he would like to have a down payment, but let me know if you would be interested and we can talk more together and the seller. Thanks.... more
Bradley~ This remains the hardest question in our industry. We all like to hope that our homes appreciate at a good rate. But alot of that depends of the location, condition, ago, etc of the home. Just because there were no improvements, doesn't mean the home was not taken care of and well maintained. Everyone hopes to make a profit when selling their home. Market conditions in the area the home is located will determine alot. What homes have sold? How long did it take? Was it listed professionally. All of these factors help in determining list price- but that still has little merit when it comes down to it. The main factor is "What is a buyer willing to pay" for this property? I would suggest you consult a REALTOR that works in your local market and can help answer some more specifics for you. I am located in Onalaska, WI-if I can help at all, just let me know. Thanks for the great question/1... more
I do find often that buyers are concerned with shared well & septic. I never quite understood why other than the fact that you may have to converse with your neighbor from time to time about it if problems arise. Factors to consider are often who is billed for the electric if it is not separate meters for the well and if the shared well/septic is recorded. These are both certainly items that you can address in an offer if they are not. In my opinion there really is more of an upside to the shared well/septic. That is if either need repair or breakdown you share the cost with your neighbor instead of consuming it on your own.... more
