Unfortunately the fee for the appraisal is for a third party company and the work has already been done. It should have been something that was cought prior to the appraisal. It would be worth asking the lender to refund your money. Good luck disputing the item found on credit. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions.
Hi Kee: I agree with the comments below. There have definitely been sales in Fulton County in October...I know because I have sold some of them! It does often take up to 6 months for Fulton Tax records to show the recorded deed.
In response to your broader question....the market has definitely shifted and in many cases asking prices are still too high, but homes that are priced at the market value, staged, and in good condition are still selling well, but just over 25% of homes on the market meet this criteria.
Here is the reality of what the market data is showing through the third quarter of 2007 relative to overpricing: 59% of the homes that were listed failed to sell during the listing term. An additional 14% reduced their price. As a result, overpriced listings/failed listings reached an all-time high of 73% in the 3rd quarter. Should you need any further information or assistance with buying or selling a home, feel free to contact me at Brenda@RKiHomes.com or 770.300.0023.... more
