dont be fooled! I stopped by and looked at this property. What they are not telling you: Some of the pics shown are not of this house, it is a modular home, and it is a dump that smells like cat crap, multiple plumbing leaks, rotted siding, no egress from basement, severely abused, neglected home and property.... more
Want to buy a homeWe are interested in buying our first home. My husband credit score is 598 on transunion and 587 on equifax. We have 1 year one our lease and we are hoping to get ready to purchase by the
I'm in the midst of buying a home. Toured it, fell in love, and put in an offer. Fell in love until I saw the inspection report. Evidence of water damage, evidence of past rodent infestation, outdated electrical outlets, and worst of all, a roof that was "nearing the end of its serviceable life".
Had a professional roofer examine the roof and he agreed with the inspection. Cost to fix the roof is $12,000. At first I thought there should be a credit of $12,000 off the purchase price, but that's not really helpful. I'm putting 20% down and $12K off only saves $2,400 on the down payment. So, I'm asking the sellers to replace the roof and fix the electrical issues. I'm sure once they are finished laughing at my requests, they'll move on to another buyer.
Buying a home is just an unpleasant experience in my opinion. Unless you have unending amounts of money.... more

Woodcroft is one of the most desired subdivision in Durham and homes here generally carry about a 10% premium in pricing over comparable homes nearby but not in Woodcroft.
The thing to remember is there's the chronological age and the effective age. If you have new(er) heating and cooling systems, hot water heater, roof, electrical and plumbing fixtures and the interior is updated and current then the effective age of the home may only be a few years old and I would expect the home to move with the market. If you do nothing and the home is simply 5-10 years older than the chances of it appreciating in value are slight.... more
Just make sure the seller pays for any treatments and more importantly any necessary repairs. Your inspector can then go out and verify the work has been done. If that does not make you feel comfortable then cancel the contract and get your deposit back minus the inspection fees.... more
My wife and I also relocated to the Lake Norman area from Western New York 15 years ago. We settled in the beautiful college town of Davidson, located on Lake Norman and within 25 minutes of the Charlotte business district. We thought we were back in Woodstock,VT. Same feel with quaint stores, shops and a variety of very good restaurants. A number of homes and town homes are within walking distance of town. Nothing like walking to town on a Sunday evening in the summer for a concert on the town green. Let me know if you'd like me to send pictures and other info.... more
