Talk with your lender FIRST before submitting an offer. If you are not pre-approved, see a local lender. If you dont know of any, start with your local bank as you already have a professional relationship with one.
I close on a condo next week, and it was approved for conventional only, could not get FHA. Majority can not be approved on FHA and speak with your lender as to why but it would be prudent to make sure you can get a loan on it before even submitting an offer. Good luck.
Yes there is something they put in the tank its called Hot and it would be clear liquid not blue. I double checked with an oil company and you can pump the tank and have the liquid tested at cat equipment in milford. They do oil sample tests and it should be under $100 for the test. Good Luck!... more
I dont live there, but have had several people buy condos in there. This is a large complex with many different buildings and units. If you are asking about the common areas being kept up with and exterior of building...then yes they are kept up. As for individual units, since they are owned by others, they (interior) are kept up as to those peoples wants and needs.
If you would like more information regarding the units, sizes, amenities for owners/renters, types of units, fees etc...please feel free to give me a call.
Good luck in your search

For some reason your question was posted in the Massachusetts Q&A section, you may want to make sure it gets posted in the CT section. I would love to help you out , but I am not familiar with the CT area at all, good luck in your search
Property taxes are lower in DE because the state pays for 80% of the school budgets, thereby reducing the school burden on homeowners. Many major corporations incorporate in DE (because of favorable laws) , and pay taxes here- which is a large source of state revenue, permitting DE to fund the schools from coprporate tax revenues. DE has no sales tax and fees are very reasonable. State income taxes are pretty typical, topping out at 5.5%, but includes substantial breaks for senior citizens. I don't believe homes are that much less here if you compare like homes to one another. DE may appear to have lower cost housing, statistically speaking, because much of the housing stock is made up of smaller and more modest homes, thereby skewing the numbers. I've lived here for 3+ years, and hope this helps you. AEM... more
Yes, a buyer agent would be a good first step. S/he would be able to help you put together an offer, and could check on zoning for you, among other things. Do you want a referral? Please email me if you do, and best of luck!... more
I am not sure that I understand your question correctly but I will give it a shot. Here are my scared thoughts on the matter.
1. Unless the 1st lien holder is being shorted, I would argue that their approval of a sale doesn't matter. The secondary lien holder is the one who really needs to approve a short sale.
2. If there isn't a short sale and all liens will be paid in full, neither party needs to approve the sale. They simply need to provide a payoff amount.
3. To begin your work on the short sale with the 2nd lien holder, you are going to need to show that the offer price is fair and that the seller truely has hardship.
4. If the 1st is short that means the 2nd will get nothing, and you really have your work cut out for you. My money says they won't approve it in this case.

Hi, You have 3 options for a pizza restaurant in the Milford, MA area. 1. A bakery business for sale on West St. Leased store could be a pizza or deli business. 2. A commercial building for sale on Beach street. The building currently has a glass company and pizza business as tenants. 3. A small office building on Fayette St which could be converted to a pizza place. Hope this helps. Contact me if you'd like some more help. Ray Paulk... more
The situation you describe is one that many other prospective sellers are facing, particularly those who purchased their homes within the last five years. It is discouraging, I'm sure.
If you rent, it would be advisable to hire a local property manager who will be able to respond to emergencies or problems that you will not be able to deal with, from 3000 miles away. So you should consider that expense, as you are making your decision.
If you then decide to sell after 2-4 years of renting, you will undoubtedly have issues of additional "wear and tear" that will necessitate additional expenses, such as those for new carpeting, repainting, upgrading appliances, etc. So that's something to consider, too.
None of us has a crystal ball that can foretell how long it will take for home prices in this area to rebound. You could find that even after renting for 2-4 years, you will be no farther ahead than you would be if you simply sold today. By doing so, you'll eliminate all expenses (taxes, insurance, maintenance) associated with your Milford home, and be able to move forward into your new life.

Milford has always been a blue-collar town. It's a town of about 24,000 residents, larger than a lot of the surrounding communities. almost a small city. It has a lot of older homes that haven't always been maintained so well. Schools don't rank as well. For some reason I ALWAYS get stuck in traffic on Route 16....doesn't matter if it's the middle of the day...there's always traffic through the center of town. A good deal of commercial property in Milford. Some vacant storefronts in downtown Milford. At the risk of offending anyone who lives and works in Milford, it's just not as desirable as the surrounding communities. I added a link below to some demogrpahic stats on Milford.
Please keep in mind there are some very nice homes in Milford and some nice areas. It's just that on a whole, property values tend to be less there. Simple supply and demand. I hope that helps.... more
