You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

I believe this apartment (when it's completed) could be a good fit for you. I'd recommend that you follow up with Karen, the listing agent, using the form on the right side of this page: http://www.trulia.com/rental/3109759782-16-F-Livingston-St-F-Saugerties-NY-12477
Our MLS has all the SOLD, Pending, and Active comparables you would need. Let me know if I can help in any way. Zillow may have some additional data for you but be advised that the info isn't always as accurate as what a Realtor can provide. - Dylan Taft... more
I believe Saugerties has more homes per square mile than any other town. In even a good, fast market there are always more listings in Saugerties than anywhere else. It also covers more area than most other towns in Ulster County. Of course the inventory right now is very high everywhere and, of course, a really good time to buy, especially with the rates at their lowest ever. If you need additional help finding a property in Saugerties, I'd be happy to help. Just go to www.larryotoole.com to find out some more about me.

Yes, the comps are all over the place, which has to do with the number of short sales bringing values down. But it is possible to find comps, depending on the property, that will be more accurate. It's very complicated and really has a lot to do with the specific property you are talking about.

For any legal advice needed, do consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate-- An unconditional release means, no conditions need to be met--if you have such a release you you are free to do what you please....... more
Keep in mind that there are no set bargain rules as to how much below list can one offer--you need to be aware of comps--recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--review the data and make a determination as to a fair offer--keep in mind that if a property is listed on target for today's market or slightly below, multiple offers may occur. What is your agent suggesting......... more
The harsh answer is: You can either drop the price until you get interest or take it off the market. If you must sell for whatever reason and your home will bring less than it is worth on today's market, do a short sale. For that you need to work with a knowledgeable short sale Realtor in your area who can explain the next step.
Sorry, but values may not come back for years. It's not just the amount of inventory but also our economic standing in general. Anymore people can only buy what they can afford judged by their income. It's back to basics. Learn about all your options and then choose the best while keeping in mind that neither option may be what you really want.... more
If you are a first time home buyer then the time is right. I know you did say that you wanted to rent with option but you didn't mention the reason why. What is your budget for rental? Have you checked your credit lately? You are entitled to check it once a year for free by going to http://www.myfico.com. Might as well contact a lending institution and see what you could afford if you were to buy. You may want to do this yourself and you can use any mortgage calculator and you'll find one on my website: http://www.exittogreenrealty. The reason I am suggesting a purchase rather than lease is because home prices have never been lower and mortgage rates have never been lower. Add an $8,000 credit for a first time homebuyer to use for closing or downpayment and you're at once in a lifetime.
If you are determined to rent with option it may take some time to find that type of property and of course your credit will need to be great. I could help you with a pristine 3 bedroom townhouse but it is in New Paltz.. My suggestion is to work with a certified buyer agent who will guide you through out the entire process.... more
