I wish you weren't thinking of renting a house. It would be so much better to buy. Your mortgage would most likely be less than your rent. Have you considered talking to a lender? I have one that will work with you to get your credit score up so that you can purchase. Let me know if you are interested!... more
In the City of Raleigh the rate would be for 2013: County rate = .534 Raleigh rate = .3826 Combined Rate = .9166
In the town of Garner the rate would be for 2013: County rate = .534 Raleigh rate = .49 Combined Rate = 1.024
That isn't a significant difference and may then depend on the price and tax value of a particular home because the tax bill is based on the tax value and not current market value or sales price.
Are you working with an agent that can help guide you through that decision making process and provide you with tax information. If you are not working with an agent I would be happy to help. Feel free to contact me here through Trulia and we can arrange a time to meet and discuss your needs.... more
Believe it or not this situation is entirely possible. The most likely scenario is that the home was probably way under priced when it sold in 2012 and the seller is now selling it for the current market value. This price was probably low because it was a distressed sale or the seller just wanted/needed to get rid of it. Current market values on properties have very little to do with the previous sales price of the property. The most influential factor, is the price similar properties are currently selling for (not the asking price, the actual sold price).... more
If the actual market value is $210,000, I think you can hardly go wrong.
If the actual market value is $160,000, I think you need to not overpay.
Comparable sales will help determine market value and from there you can derive an offer and fair price. Your agent easily should be able to provide those calculations.
That is not an easy question, Sharon! There are a lot of variables. Such as where is it located...in a subdivision, on a main highway, etc. Is the lot wooded or cleared? In August, two lots (.46 and .47 acres) sold for $25,000 each and a block of 20 acres sold for $195,000. In October, a .28 acre lot sold for $32,500. The thing to do is decide what you are willing to pay and the location you want then have an agent pull up what is available. Let me know if you would like me to send you the MLS information on land in the Garner area! There are 31 listings for land in the Garner area at this time!... more
That home was pulled off the market temporarily in April. It is a HUD foreclosure, and for some reason HUD is sitting on it. Sometimes that happens when there is a title issue.
I predict that HUD will not rent you that home.
Hi Melissa, Hope you're doing great. This home is no longer on the market, but I would be glad to try to find out if the sellers are still interested in selling and/or to search for other homes in that community for you. Please let me know how I can help you. Garner is where I live and focus my real estate sales. Thanks! (Cassondra Liles, Realtor (919)523-5065 / www.YourGarnerRealtor.com)... more
The banks will not rent out a foreclosure. Have you spoken to a lender to determine if you could purchase one? There are several in Garner right now that have signs in the yard and still marketed on sites like Trulia until they close but actually have contracts on them. Are there houses in particular you are referring to?... more
What city/state are you in? Many times people with phone numbers that look like long distance in our area may not be the case....What area are you looking for and If you are in the Tulsa Metro area I can help you...Otherwise your real estate agent (or agency if you don't have an agent) can help you.
