At present all homes are in the typical Holiday and winter slow down as far as sales. Prices are stable to slightly rising and in about Feb 2014 to March when the business heats up again and demand becomes good - prices will most likely rise quickly. Based on the trends for non-recession markets like we just came from the 37 years I've been doing this business.
If you are not working with another agent, we would be happy to show you the property. Otherwise your agent can show the home.
Thank you for your interest and if we can help - please let us know.
Also please keep in mind - unlike most if not all other companies, we do not charge a broker administrative fee of $75 and up to $500. We feel, commission should be all the agents and companies should collect - we share commissions with other companies on a 50/50 basis, if they belong to the MLS.... more
Generally agents will not enter in their listing information for rentals when it comes to pet. Either they are unaware it is connected to their Trulia or they will not enter it in so that you will personally contact them to generate more leads.... more
It may be difficult if your foreclosure was only 2 years ago. Do you know what your current credit scores are and do you have a substantial down payment? If you have been able to re-establish your credit, and you have a good down payment, and you have a good explanation of what occurred to cause your past credit problems and what you have done to correct the situation, you might be able to get a lender to work with you on an in-house type of loan. Call or e-mail me if you would like to find out. Curt Cleveland. Licensed Realtor in the state of Iowa. Coldwell Banker Hedges. 319-360-0708. email@example.com... more
The primary issue that you will run into when leaving your car outside during the winter months is cleaning it off from snow and/or ice that accumulates. This is the same thing that you will run in to at the end of a work day. Yes, we get snow and ice and yes, it is a pain to deal with. I guess you get used to it and have the appropriate 'tools' in your trunk (ice scraper and brush). An automatic start on the car, the type that you can initiate from inside, is a handy device and not terribly expensive after market. It can start the process for you prior to you getting in the car.
Price range is going to dictate many things and one is the garage. The garage adds roughly $5K-$10K in price.
One thing to keep in mind is re-sale. A 2-car garage appeals to more people therefore your Buyer market is larger when you are selling.
I hope that was helpful. Of course, I am happy to visit with you about our housing market. I can answer any questions you may have and offer ideas to help your transition to cold weather...and the Iowa City area.
I look forward to visiting with you soon.
