According to MLS, the property at 23 Angela Rose Lane is listed. However, they have an accepted offer on the property. The reason it is still listed as "active" with a flag is because they are waiting for the home inspection and the signing of the purchase and sale agreement.... more
Hi Ada, if you are refering to 29 Barclay street, I can answer some questions for you. I grew up in that house and my Mom still lives in it. The house is located off Grafton Street, closer to the on ramp of the highway. They say it is part of the Union Hill neighborhood, but actually, we,and many others consider that area as Grafton Hill. Please feel free to ask me anything you like and I will do my best to give you answers.... more

Dear Clarkie, I have 2 such situations like this right now. I have on client from Arizona and one client from Florida. They each have a local Attorney who has power of Attorney to sign documents at the closing for them. We verified who they were by having them provide proof with a drivers lic or passport. We did most formd virtually and the Atty will go to the closing and wire them the funds. As a realtor I did the smoke and water etc.. In addition I have a buyer from another country and we are doing this the same way. It's actaully more common than you think. Of course I would be happy to help you!

Sam, yes you can still buy foreclosures for low prices, but be careful. You'll see homes for $50,000 that need 150k worth of fixes. Banks, generally speaking will not finance homes for buyers with little money down if plumbing, electrical, heating systems are missing. I've seen rookie agents give their low downn payment buyers false hope time and time again. As for appraisals, if you have an accepted offer on the home, the appraiser will visit the home and determine a value. If the home doesn't appraise, you either need to re-negotiate with the seller or come up with more money.. UNLESS, you indicate in your offer that the purchase of the condo is "subject to appraisal". Are you working with an agent now?... more
