You certainly have reason to complain, but you need to work this out with your landlord. He or she is under contract with the real estate agent and can direct him or her to change the showing instructions.... more
Depends on a few things... on how strong the listing agent or listing agent's negotiator is; on the lender being asked to take the shortage; on the buyer's willingness to contribute; and the seller's ability/willingness to contribute, to name a few. Here's a few things you can count on - the lender taking the loss is going to try to make everyone else pay for any/all expenses involved; and the seller(s) usually will not have the ability or willingness to contribute anything towards any expenses; the buyer will be asked to contribute. It is critical in negotiating short sales to structure the deal going in to allow for expenses to be covered above and beyond the eventual lender's short sale approval price. Everything is pretty much a moving target in the world of short sales still...
I'm sure the Trulia community will add much more to what I've missed as well...

Not knowing your overall finances/asssets--you may have options, if you haven't done so yet, do visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first, see if you do qualify, how much and have your credit score checked as their scoring is often different--if needed your loan officer can suggest great ways to improve your credit in the fastest time--then go from there.... more
In a way, the option that they select to pursue shouldn't matter to you, because the net results are similar. So either the bank will come after you for the deficiency judgment, or the IRS will come after you for the unpaid taxes.... more
Foreclosure sales often have final sale prices below list price, but usually not drastically below list price (occasionally there are exceptions). Banks are trying to list properties at fair market value or slightly below fair market value when listed, so that they will sell within a reasonable time and also allow the bank to minimize its losses.
Foreclosure properties are "as is," which poses extra risks. There are no disclosures from an owner about past history of the home, any leaks, hail damage, repairs, etc., because the bank has no idea. Keep in mind that no matter what, you usually "get what you pay for."
Since no link is visible and no address given, you may wish to ask your question again--or consider working with an agent and schedule a showing appointment--that way you can make an assessment firsthand.... more
Hi Daniel! The market when you lived here was very consistent, as it is today. We did see price increases the end of 2003 and in 2007 another increase of about 15%. It is a great time to sell in the Minot area with so many people moving into the market, as well as a great time to buy with the interest being at all time low's (4.25%!). Our market tends to stay strong because of the Minot Air Force Base, they are a great asset to our local economy. We have also become home to many oil companies who have brought workers from across the country. So it is also a great time to scoop up some investment properties since there is a demand for rentals as well! Please let me know if there are any other questions or information I can get for you!!... more
Improvements like this are typically a benefit, but it depends on how close your house is to this new park. You'll need to consider the overall impact on the neighborhood as well as on homes adjacent to the park. There should be some sort of planning and negotiation process where the nearby homeowners would have some say as to the layout and operations of this new park, including parking and the use of night lights.
If your house would be impacted by the traffic from this new sports field, then it would have both a positive and a negative impact. The positive impact would the fact that it is walking distance from the home, and would only be a positive if the new buyers had children who used this new sports field. The negative side would be that there would likely be a lot of traffic and parking on the streets adjacent to the field during practices and games, as well as possibly some property damage as people walk over landscaping and leave trash behind. If there are night lights, then you'll need to work with your fellow homeowners to negotiate how late those lights can be used.... more
While I can't predict the future, in all of 2008, 2009 and so far in 2010, avg. days on market (DOM) for Mandan single family homes, duplexes, twin homes, etc. was about 90 days. In March 2009 DOM was 112, April 2009 DOM was 96.
When I looked at only single family homes priced from $150,000 to $175,000 in Mandan, in April 2009 the fastest sale was 34 days and the longest sale date was 103 days. I would have to do a market analysis to give you a more accurate number. The condition of your home, location, number of bedrooms, age, etc. and of course the price of your home will all have a big affect on the number of days your home will be on the market.
If you want a market analysis, there is no cost or obligation, just Information. Call me at 701-220-3348 or email me at: MarySplichal@Realtor.com.
Not as far as I know, the lowest I've seen is 10% down and you must have a very high credit score to pay only 10% down. Each case is different, depends on the age of the Mobile Home and your credit scores. Check with VUE credit union, Cap. Credit Union, Starion Bank, Dakota Community Bank and Gate City Bank to learn more about their programs.... more
