It is based on the contract, as long as the contract has an inspection objection/resolution deadline on it, then you can terminate based on inspection. Also, not legally advising, but in my experience, the words "sue," come out in this business a lot more than necessary and don't usually mean much! Good Luck!... more
I would just like to let you know that if you have not signed an Exclusive Right-to-Buy agreement with this agent, you have no legal obligation to use her as your agent for any purchase you would like to make. I would call the managing broker to see if the assistant is licensed and if she is, you can absolutely sign that agreement with the assistant and make sure she gets all the commission.
If she is not licensed, I would highly recommend finding another agent to work with. A home is a huge purchase that should be guided by an agent who works with you and is helpful instead of a problem. Good luck!... more
I exhausted every avenue I could think of for this issue. (emailing customer service, contacting the old listing agent, claiming it as my house, signing up as an agent to try to claim the listing, and calling customer service). They responded to my email by giving me a case number (twice). I called several times, but after waiting in the queue for over 20 mins each time, I hung up. The best way is to call (888) 466-3501 right when they open at 7am PST. When I did this, I waited for 3 minutes and the very nice customer service rep was glad to delete them for me. She said it would process overnight. Good luck!... more
Hi I live in Westminster and the commute to downtown is really quick and easy, that's what I love about the area. I'm 10-15 minutes from either Boulder or Denver on a good day. In between the two areas it could get cheaper but then again the closer to downtown gets very pricy. Highlands is a nice area and very expensive so I'm just kind of trying to think of what kind of areas you might like based on liking the Highlands.
Other than being really close to downtown the only thing that really stood out was maybe the Orchards in Westminster. It's not in between but it is a really nice little area and there are shops and dining along with some nice apartments that might work for you. The nice thing about that area is like a block or two off of I-25 s you can just jump on the highway and be downtown in a short time without all of the side road traffic.
Also around highway 76 and Pecos, it is an up and coming area that is really close to downtown. There is some new construction going up I just can't think of any apartment/rental complex's over there that would work.
Not sure if I was any help at all but if I can help in anyway please let me know and welcome to Denver!
Dkeller002, Unfortunately the MLS data doesn't go back that far, so it is a hard question to answer. In the past 500 days thought the average list to sale price ratio is about 98% per MLS data; therefore, I guess you would say the average "discount" from the list price would be 2%. There is obviously more to it than just this, but I hope this helps...... more
I am presently in this situation. I'm purchasing a home that has a lease which expires in 2 months. There is an added clause in the lease that requires the Landlord to pay the Tenant $2200 to move out! The former owners have already paid them: once I buy the house, can they come after me for another $2200? There appears to be no way for the Landlord NOT to pay, according to the lease language.... more
It depends. If you are remodeling a bathroom in your basement or if you are adding one. If you are adding one it can get pricey depending if you already have the hookups for toilet and a shower drain. If you do have these it will be less but still can be expensive.
You will have to have the supplies, parts, permits, etc.
It really depends on value of the homes currently and what the market it doing whether it will be worth it. Some cases it would be worth it.... more
