Hi House Hunter,
Typically the seller pays for the certificate of occupancy, if it is a short sale or foreclosure than the buyer pays for it. However the seller can state that the home is sold AS IS and have the buyer pay for the certificate of occupancy.

Hi Andrea, talk to a local agent - this information is available in the tax record section of the MLS. I've helped folks in my community with similar requests.

Almost all information can be found on the internet. I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area and we have all the Real Property information listed on the county website. I would recommend that you Google the county that you live in and see if they have that information posted. You may have to look up several different addresses but will work. If you have a Realtor you know they can also look up that information in the MLS and e-mail it to you but it has to be the MLS in your area.
No; you don't have to deal with multiple Realtors. A licensed NJ Realtor can assist with negotiating and purchasing homes listed by them, as well as homes listed by other Realtors.
I always recommend that buyers and sellers identify one solid Realtor they feel comfortable with. This Realtor can serve as their confidant and resource to help them locate the best home options available.
If you don't have one particular Realtor with whom you're committed to, then consider interviewing 2 to 3 Realtors. Determine whose qualifications, personality and way of doing business appeals to you most.
Once you figure out who is best suited to you, stick with that Realtor. This way you can free up more of your time to do the fun part....finding a home you'll love!

Hi! I would love to assist you with your home purchase. My office is located in Freehold and I specialize in the Freehold area. I can put you in touch with the Gold Service Manager in my office who can answer all your financial questions and assist you with obtaining a mortgage. Weichert Financial has many mortgage programs available to suit each individual home buyers needs.
There are currently many 3 bedroom 2 bath homes available in the Freehold area, so once you are pre-approved, we can begin to search for your "Dream Home".
If for some reason you are not able to obtain a mortgage at this time, perhaps a rent w/option to buy may work for you. With so many homes currently on the market, many sellers are leaving their homes vacant in order to move on and are willing to entertain a rental w/option. Either way, I would welcome the opportunity to assist you.
well where are you buying, boro or twp? In both the boro and the TWP there were many of the same age residents that passed on and now theyre either foreclosures or just the old owners family is still deciding what to do. No need to worry this area is far far far from deteriorating and Freehold, boro or twp is a great place to live, a true mix of ethnicities (asains, indians, black, white and hispanic) great restuarants, amazing schools, great mall and parks and proximity to NYC and the beach make it a wonderful place to raise a family or enjoy everything this area has to offer. Also downtown Freehold is going through a somewhat of a revival, with the American Hotel being renovated, new store fronts and the hall of records being repaired. Also if you're looking in the boro, it has come a long long way from where it was 10 years ago, and those "vacant" homes wont be for muych longer. If youre looking in the TWP by Ely Harmony or Jackson Mills than you're in luck, because that area is going through so much building, tearing down the old and bringing in new 4,000+ sq ft homes, this area is already well off and in 10 years will be even more so.... more
There is no direct connection between assessed value & asking price. What you want to do is have your agent run comparables sales in the last 6 months. That will be closer to the true value of the house.
Godd luck in your search

Hi Ken, talk to a local agent, he/she should be able to provide you market stats. If having a handle on the data is important to you (as I suspect it is) then you can use this as a tool in evaluating whether an agent is a good fit for you or not.
Good luck and....

I'm sure 5 Realtors will respond that you need to call them and they will help you with the correct offer. Since every unit is different, even in something as apparently plain vanilla as a condominium, it would be necessary to see the unit on the inside to make a proper determination. The condition of this unit could be much better or much worse than other units. There could be significant upgrades, or lack thereof. It could be a foreclosure or short sale. It could be owned by someone who doesn't have to sell and is not terrible motivated. The location in the complex could be close to a busy road, or power lines, or the garbage dumpster, or the noisy outdoor pool. Recent sales might need to be adjusted for ongoing depreciation. As you can see, it's complicated. So any opinion offered on this question in this forum will be pretty much worthless, unless the poster actually saw the interior of the unit and knows the details of the offering.
If you are interested in really finding out the answer to this question, you should work with an experienced, full-time Realtor from the Freehold area who knows that complex and can provide real data rather than an Internet guess.
Of course, do not call the listing agent, you do not want to fall into the trap of dual agency. You want your own agent to represent you.

Most of the pre-foreclosures that are for sale are listed in the MLS, but not all. Because a property is in a foreclosure action does not mean that it is for sale. Many times the owners are seeking solutions through refinancing, work out loans with their existing lender, liquidation of other assets, or borrowing from a family member in order to retain ownership of their home. You can find many pre-foreclosure listings right here on Trulia. But, again, the appearance of a property on this list does not mean that it is for sale. You can find properties and compile lists of interest using Trulia, then research on your own, or with a Realtor, which properties might be for sale and of interest to you.
Those properties which appear on the MLS are actively being marketed for sale. Many of the listings in the Monmouth/Ocean MLS are short sales and pre-foreclosures. A Realtor who follows this market will also have word-of-mouth knowledge of other properties that are for sale but are not listed. And, Realtors who work this market will reach out to property owners who are in a foreclosure action to find out if they might consider selling, when they have a potential buyer. While you can do this on your own, the reception to inquiries from owners under duress is often better when the approach is from a Realtor. Many of these owners have been approached multiple times by unscrupulous individuals with false promises. As a result, their guard is up.
There is no central list of "short sales" other than the fact that any properties being sold as a short sale should be identified as such in the MLS. Property owners, nor lenders report this information anywhere. When property owners make their property available for sale, they should identify it as a short sale, if it is. Many FSBOs do not. Most in the MLS are identified, but sometimes the Realtor does not know, or willingly omits this data.
Properties in foreclosure actions are a matter of public record, and can be obtained in Freehold. If you want to pay a service, you can subscribe, or simply search right here on Trulia, make your list and go forward with or without a Realtor from there.

It totally depends on what you put in your offer. If you did not stipulate anything, only warranted items, not cosmetic (which would be carpet) would be included. The appliances only need to work. This is why I generally recommend that a buyer not deal directly with the seller's agent--you want the best representation possible. A really good realtor can be fair to both sides, but you need to be a little more savvy buyer if you are using the listing agent to buy the home. Read your contract carefully. It may be that your only option may be to walk away and give up your deposit if you really want out of the deal. What other protections did the agent build in for you--contingencies that might work in your favor in the offer? You might consult a real estate attorney to have him review your contract, too.... more
Preposterous. If she is beginning the relationship by specifying what she will NOT do, you need to dump her regardless of your feelings for her.
Interview 3 more if necessary. Any agent who will NOT do open houses and will not work Sundays is basically useless.
