You don't say if it's been on the market? If it is on the market, talk to the agent about continuing to lower the price. If it hasn't been on the market, get a few agents opinions of whether it will be better to try and fix a few things before listing it. The better the condition, the more likely that more buyers can qualify for a home loan on it. You need to have professionals come and see if there is damage from a leaky roof to determine whether it is worthwhile to repair. Start by getting some realtors to view it and they will give you some advice about inspectors so that an evaluation can be made. Best, Terry Bell, Realtor, Santa Rosa, CA... more
I suggest having a Realtor do a free market analysis and a trend analysis to see if now is the time to sell or not. Personally, I have opted to hold onto my investment properties in Idaho and wait for property values to come back since our inventory is at 4 year lows and rents are increasing due to the number of people that have lost their homes to short sale and foreclosure that can't turn around and buy a replacement home.
If you do decide to sell them, I suggest selling them individually so each one get's their best price instead of discounting them as a group. Talk to your CPA about doing a 1031 Exchange!
Best of luck! Hope you found this answer helpful!
Did you not have insurance? If so, you're far better off getting the insurance company to pay for repairs. If not, and assuming you don't have resources or ability to pay to have it re-built, then I assume you at least own the property free and clear. Without knowing the extent of the damages, I can't begin to help you understand how it would impact the proceeds of the sale. However, I would be happy to refer you to an agent I know in that area - just email me MyAgentVicky@Gmail.com. Good luck.... more
You have to contact the Trulia dream coordinators directly. They are the highest level of magical people in the Trulia organization. They will climb the wishing tree and meet all of your needs. And NEVER EVER call a licensed, local, board affiliated Realtor(R), all they do is sell your house for 5-15% more, on average, than if you sell it yourself. Stay strong and always, no matter what, believe in the magical power of Trulia. Abracadabra!... more
Well, I like to drive around the neighborhood and if I see something cute like an arbor or trellis, then take a quick photo! Not too hard to find a handman to work from the photo. Magazines also have some great ideas, but driving around the neighborhood helps you visualize similar homes easier I think.... more
The Midland/Columbus market seems to be improving. I have been very busy in the last month with 2 of my listings selling. As far as the Ft. Mitchell area I do think the influx of Ft. Benning personel will continue to buy in the area. One of the couples that I sold this month coming to Ft. Benning did not want to be in Alabama because they did not want to travel so far to shop and they felt like the schools were better in Columbus. I hope this helps.... more
