When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
I am unclear whether you're looking to buy a house on a land contract for yourself at that rate, if you're looking to purchase a house to sell on land contract, or looking to sell your current home in land contract.
Either way I'd be more than happy to assist you.

That property is pending, meaning the seller has accepted and offer to purchase and they are in the process of closing the agreement.
If you would like I'd be more than happy to assist you with selecting other properties that match your criteria.

The Summer taxes are $2,169.00 and the Winter Taxes are $219.00. But the property is Bank Owned and the taxes are NON Homesteaded.
If you purchase the property AND live in it, taxes will go down.
If you have any more questions, feel free to email me.
In your offer I would assume there is a clause for looking over the Association documents??? If so, and the timeframe hasn't expired you can withdraw your offer. Otherwise, seek the counsel of a real estate attorney. If you back out without a good reason they most likely have the right to keep your earnest money deposit.

I'm assuming you want to purchase a foreclosed home from a financial institution. I work in the REO dept for a bank. The only advantage of an all-cash offer is we're more certain that the transaction will actually close, and not fall out due to financing difficulties. There are situations when the bank will specific "offers must be all cash only" (or something similar) in the listing. This is typically done on propertiies that are in such poor condition that they will not qualify for conventional financing. In general, the longer an REO has been on the market, the better your chances of getting a discount from the market value. However, we lose the same amount of money whether you offer cash or new financing.... more
Chances are, all you will get from your posts are scammers. What you need to do is get an agent who specializes in yoru area, they can the market your property, preauilify buyers and assist you with getting your property sold. The commission you pay will more than pay for itself in the work prequailifying and marketing to those who are quailified to buy. If you try to utilize teh help of everyone, you will maybe get `105 of their effort, 10 agents giving you 10 percent no way matches one agent giving you a 100% and their knowledge to get your home sold.
Good luck with your sale... more
I've fired a few clients recently for the same thought process...
I'm not willing to compromise my time nor my sanity at the drop of a hat for anyone that can't afford me a simple convenience.
My favorite part is how I don't think I ask too much -- just give me 24 hour notice to set up a showing to make arrangements, call the listing, move other clients around, etc. Then, heaven forbid I can't show a house on 15 minute notice, I'm a bad guy and they'll call the listing agent to view it. Then, the listing agent in many cases tries to solicit their business away from me, even when they're under contract...argh.
I still find that some people aren't quite "getting it" when it comes to pricing a listing. They'll bounce between 3-4 agents. They'll blame the agent for the lack of showings, when in reality, consumers have any given number of outlets to research prices, other listings, etc. If you, as a seller AREN'T getting showings -- you're overpriced. Simply put.
I think that in addition to all that, clients think all agents are the same. Many don't understand that having the listing agent show a home isn't always a good thing. Or, that we don't get paid until the deal closes...so showing 30-50 homes which may be no big deal to someone is a huge deal to us IF we don't close.
Other than that, I love this job. I've found that sitting down and talking with people and a few minute education to our job goes a long, long way.... more
Pheonix, it most likely depends on the seller. But, usually the "cleanest" offer wins. That is the one with the least amount of contingencies and the most reasonable price. Make sure if you are going to submit a cash offer you have your proof of funds to submit with it. If this is a bank owned house they will require that to accompany the offer. I hope you are working with a buyers agent, who holds an ABR. Good luck and Merry Christmas!... more
