Hello First Time Buyer,
A contract becomes a binding agreement if the contracting parties agreed to the terms and conditions stipulated therein.
You, as the consumer/buyer, can discuss the terms and conditions with the other party. It should be the meeting of the minds of both parties. If you are not comfortable with his requirement, you are not obligated to agree to his terms.
Again, it is the meeting of the minds of both parties.
In my opinion just surface touch up, maybe counter, or paint job. but most buyers like their own taste.
However if your Kitchen looks bad you can do a very nice inexpensive change. They will more than likely take it out anyway.
But it may increase the value of what you have. Just be sure that increase is worth it.... more
I would suggest that in this regard you should do your own research; get a current list of the mobile home parks that may be of interest to you, obtain information from every source you can find, personally visit a number of them and the various communities involved, and then evaluate and draw your own conclusions.... more
Hello Cindy. You should contact the escrow company a.s.a.p. and follow up with them to find out what happened. The escrow company cannot release the funds without the buyer's (i.e., new owner's) written consent. Typically, escrow companies will not wait that long to get a decision regarding the disposition of the funds that were held back in escrow. Does the buyer who purchased from you even still own the property? Again, I would start with the escrow company and find out what happened. Good luck to you.... more
It may be difficult to get a home loan with poor credit. However, there are many other factors that are considered. If you would like, I could get you in touch with our in house mortgage advisor, to see if you can get pre-approved.Feel free to contact me for the contact information.
I hope this answered your question.
Wishing you the best of luck,

The question is subjective, and climate is really is a matter of personal preferences/tolerances; therefore consider visiting areas of interest more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached....... more
Keep in mind that various sources feed into some online sites, therefore some information may not always be accurate, nor updated; if a lisiting says it's not for sale, it could simply mean it isn't, or it could be in contract, sold, etc. If looking to buy in the near future, consider working with an agent of your own; also check out www.mlsli.com for the most up to date available area properties. Be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously.... more
It would DEPEND on several things: (it always "depends")
Would upgrading the Kitchen make it too nice for the neighborhood; would it be over-improved?
Would the amount you invest be dis-proportional to the Value of the house?
Would you do it "right" or cut corners?
Would you do it good taste, for the Buyer's taste, (Stainless Steel, not Black or Avocado appliances)?
Would you pull Permits, so that it doesn't come back on you?
Then the answer is, YES!
It will return between 80% and 150% of your investment. (That big variance is who's opinion you ask: I say 150%, but I did Kitchens & Baths for a living in a previous life.)
Good luck and may God bless... more
Lenght of time will vary--depending on location, price, condition, size, marketing efforts, etc., if you are looking to sell don't worry too much about average market time--make sure the property is priced well, marketed properly, shows well--is neat, clean, clutter free and don't forget the exterior for curb appeal-- if you need assistance feel free to e-mail me.... more
How long have you been looking? Does the home match you rneeds/preferences? What monthly payment are you looking to achieve? How much do you have to put down?
We can talk about price and values and all that (which is important), but start with the most important stuff first - your personal situation - your needs, wants and ability to afford it.
I always tell buyers up front - I can talk about comparisons and values all day long - but if you like a home enough - pay what you want and what you can afford based on how much you like it.
I can almost assure you that at this point in the market (down nearly 40% from peak) - with 5% interest rates - you're not overpaying - that's for sure.
visit the web reference - plenty of info on there - check ou the state of the long island real estate market - good stuff - very surprising info on there.... more
If you don't have an agent, consider the services--in order to determine a fair offer you need to be aware of recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--not having many details and not having seen the property makes it this an impossible question to answer.... more
