Trulia does not. You will want to speak with a Realtor that specializes in these types of contracts. I can help if you are interested just get in contact with me.
To find an unlisted rental property, I suppose the only approach you can try is to ask around friends and family to see if they know of any. Otherwise, you would have to knock on every door in your area to ask every landlord if they have such a property.... more
Keep in mind that assessed value has no bearing on market value--you need to be aware of recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, review the data and make a determination as to a fair price--ask your agent for comps.... more
Consider interviewing in person a few agents, or as many as needed, from different realty companies, then choose the one you like best; ask about scheduling around your needs, who will choose the properties to be seen, can you expect updates on new listings and recently sold properties, and how often will communication occur, etc. Ask about current sales in your areas of interest, negotiating strategies, etc.; choose your agent with care.... more
In most new construction the builder owns the lot and sells you the lot with a new home. If you are buying the lot and hiring a builder, you would need a construction loan that would allow you to do such a thing. Ask your loan officer to explalin your options.... more
Shauna you will receive 2 distinct opinions by those agents that are predominately buyer agents and another from those who are predominately listing agents. Some agents only work with buyers and do a great job getting them teh best deal, others are superstars at listing. A few agents can do both and and do a great a job at both. The first thing is you need to feel comfortable. If this is agent is one of the leaders and can handle both, you could be well taken care of. If not, you need someone who can work with you as a buyer and get you your best deal. As well when selling your house, you dont want an agent who predominately works with buyers, you want a listing superstar who can give your house the exposure it deserves to get it sold. You may need 2 agents but may be able to find that 1 agent that stands out and can do both.
You need to interview teh agents, ask them what they can offer, tell them what you expect and determine if tehy are a good fit for your situation. Good luck with your sale and your new purchase.... more
Ok TAKE A DEEP BREATH IT WILL BE OK! Hahaha
It is quite possible the agreement could have been for a year. I know some agents that will do standard 3 or 6 month agreements. Some like to have every one go till December 31st for simplicity sake.
The reason why realtors are sometimes loose on the length is because exactly what you said. It just is not good business to try to hold a buyer to an agreement they don't want to be a part of. This is a customer service biz, and in truth the realtor did not contact you for 6 months. I contact people at least every 2 month's that is in your situation, because guess what I would like to still have your business! You feel good with the other realtor AND THAT IS JUST FINE!
There is a legal side of things when it comes to procurement. Bottom line? Everything you said in the question makes sense to me. If you feel this current realtor deserves your business then just tell prior realtor about the situation. If the contract is still current request a cancellation (and request a copy of the contract too). That way you can provide it to your new realtor and move on.
I like to think the majority of realtors out there will understand and do what is best for YOU. Hopefully this guy or his broker does not make a mess of things. Just remember at the end of the day we realtors are here to serve the customer. If you are happy with your current situation then that is how it should stay.
Hope this helps!

Statistically, the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors lumps the St. Anthony neighborhood in with the Midway area which might skew the numbers somewhat down. But from comparing 2010 with 2011 home prices have increased in this area from an average of $124, 000 to $145,000. Home inventories are about a 6 month supply and from list price to sale price, there's a 15 percent difference ($100,000 list price sells on average for $85,000).
The neighboring Mirriam Park neighborhood fares at about a 5 percent drop in values, although inventory appears a bit tighter as of February as days on market has dropped. Average sale price for Town & Country/ Mirriam Park is about $223,000. See the link for a whole bunch of statistics.... more

Five to 10 years is the average time one typically owns a home before moving again. Typically, your selling expenses will be small enough that you can still show a profit. Many others believe that is a sufficient time to leverage these great interest rates and hopefully see a modest return on your investment. Especially in the under $250K range, it is more likely that home bracket will see better appreciation that the upper brackets.
If you put $20K down a $200K home, and in 5 years the home appreciates at 3% per year (by the way this last year the average was 7%) then in five years it'll be worth $230K. Subtract the original value and you've ROI of $30K on top of your investment of only $20K. Granted this is simplified not to include mortgage payments (which are substituting your rent) and any improvements. But where else can you turn $20K into $50K in only 5 years?
Hope this is helpful.

Prairie Lakes is a large development and there's the potential for multiple different management companies in for the townhouses on Lafayette vs. the ones in the Kerrville area. The properties on Kerrville Trail are managed by Community Development - 763-225-6400.
Let me know if I can assist in any other way.
1. could be a week, banks can be slow.
2. The acceptance date on the contract will be the date for all contingencies, regardless of when the bank signs the contract.
3. Final approval is when they sign but they may never really tell you if different. They want to sell you the home and a lot the language is to protect the bank.
4. Your agent will stay on top of this contract, and other than poor communication (from the banks) these deals usually close and you will be a home owner... more
