Dear Abbey,

While Matt's offer is very generous, I'd caution you to consider the following.

If you do not yet have a real estate agent, then you should know before you commit to working with someone specific that generally speaking (with some possible exceptions) the agent who walks in with you to see any property for the first time will "by default" become you real estate agent (at least for this property)- unless you have a written agreement with a different agent who you have already designated as your real estate agent.

If that is the case (you've already signed an agreement with an agent to represent you) and you'd like to continue to work with your own designated agent, then you should contact your agent to arrange a showing/viewing of this property for you.

Again if you do not yet have a real estate agent- I would suggest speaking with multiple agents before you make a choice on whom you'd like to work with, and I would not necessarily rule out people who have responded to your request here. These agents tend to be pretty technologically up to date (compared to the vast majority of Realtors), and as a result they can often respond to requests more quickly.

I have also included some links on how to choose a Realtor if you are just starting out whether you are buying or selling.

Dear Abbey:

I am the neighborhood Agent and live walking distance from this area. I jogged past the property early this morning and it has a lot of potential. The owner is a real estate agent and she has dropped the price from 289,000 to 249,000. It needs some repair but not to large of a problem to tackle. i.e. bedrooms need updating. It has a nice yard and a deck for grilling. If you would like to walk thru the unit please contact me as I will be happy to represent you as your realtor. Also, I have worked with several different banks depending on the type of loan you are looking for that will assit you in purchasing this home.

This site will allow you to input data with relation to the dollar amound you intend to put down, please feel free to click on the link and determine what you can afford.

I hope I can be of service to you. If you are looking for a two flat investment property, I have a handful under 90,000 that needs complete gut rehab, none the less these properties are near the Belden home and steps away from the train. 90% of renters look for rentals near transportation. Perhaps this is another way to live in the dwelling as well as have a renter to assist you with a continous cash flow to pay mortgage, taxes and insurance.

Thank you,

Abbey,
There are no scheduled open houses for this property. I am actually showing this property to some of my clients tomorrow evening. If you would like, I could also show it to you then.
