It looks like quite a few of them are rentals. Other than that, I cannot tell you much about the building. I am listing a beautiful condo at 4900 Forrestville (239,900 owner is relocating and VERY motivated) if that area interest you. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom top floor unit. Building is owner occupied and very well kept. Let me know if you are interested in taking a look. Give me a call 773.206.7927 or email email@example.com
For example there was a house in Westmont appraised by "drive by" bank appraiser at 180k
Next guy went inside and his appraisal was 615k. Maybe extreme but real sample.
When comes to Deborah mentioning FHA financing I think everybody is oversensitive here.
Is only natural that you are trying to show to the buyer how easy can be to buy a property.
I think in different situation in different area the buyer would not even notice such thing.
Of course there is a chance that you may be correct, but there is a chance that she simply was trying to show to the buyer how easy is to get this property.
I have clients who are Black, White, Spanish, Polish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese etc.
Everybody brings own senility about certain issues.
I do not care where they are coming from and I am sure she doesn't too.
There is always a chance that our interpretation is not correct and underlining reasons are different than we think. In addition if we start doing such assessments it eliminates from the start somebody who is truly trying to help.
I think you should not be afraid that your agent is going ask you to make decision.
If you have one and discussing this on line it means that there is no trust between your agent and you because he/she will give you opinion in 2 minutes phone conversation deeper and better than all this on line discussion.
What happened to fellow with whom you made the contract for low appraised property?
Is he/she not trustworthy anymore? Hire another one.
Your entire question should be directed to him. He/She knows you and your situation and this knowledge make an agent person best equipped to help you.
I am not going personally comment on line that this or that property is overpriced or not.
To me it feels like I am discussing it up front of selling agent.
Not really comfortable for him.
I think selling agent knows what he/she should.
I think there are several different aspects to every potential transaction that should be discussed
In more private environment and with better benefit for everybody involved.
I think that it is hillarious that you brought up FHA financing. I assume that you believe that I might need that or something or because the area is an African American area that I must need that. It is laughable. You would be surprised to know who I am and what kind of money I have. On the other hand, I am really happy that my other African American counterparts who might not be able to afford a larger down payment are able to use FHA, but your attempt is laughable. Not that FHA or only for low income or mid income individuals, but come on?!?! Next time keep income related or economic related responses out of your answer unless someone ask you. Funny funny funny. Lots of people who look just like you have yet to learn when not to put their foot in their mouth. Never make assumptions and of course you have convinced yourself that there is nothing wrong with what you said and that oh "I did not make an assumption and I am sorry if I did" but you should take a long break and read a sociology book.
Stop by our open house on Sunday 8/24/08 from 1:00-3:00p.m. Best of luck! Deborah
That condo has been on the market for a while and is overpriced. We saw it last year and the seller does not seem quite as motivated as you say. Also, the condo is super small. We looked at it an immediately were unimpressed because of the room sizes and the tiny living room. Hopefully, it sells, but not at that price. Have you been asking for feedback from people viewing the condos? Also, for that area it is overpriced. Most things are sitting on the market around there. I hope you get lucky.
For you as a buyer his service is "FREE" since he is paid only when sales is finalized by the seller.
What stops you from talking with some reasonable guy who I am sure will be happy to work with you?
He will do some research for you and no doubt you will have your answers.
Research require some time
