With some floor plans, it is possible to create a bedroom out of either a living room or a dining room by closing off the wall in between, moving a doorway if necessar, and building a closet. Consult with an architect before you do this, as - when not done properly - the condo will be difficult to re-sell later.... more

Keller Williams Realty
Most rentals are handled by real estate agents. They will qualify the tenant, do all the paper work and do a credit check. The fee's vary from 100% of the fee from the landlord, to 100% of the fee from the tenant, to 50% of the fee from each the landlord and tenant. The variation of the fee is based on the supply and demand of available rentals in a market place. Management companies collect the rent, and will maintenance of the unit for a fee. Most condo complexs have management companies that handle the maintenance but not the collection of the rent.
It'll vary, of course. Often condos will have both a numeric limit (for instance, 1 or 2 pets) and some other restriction, such as size (for instance, weighing no more than 25 pounds). In cases like that, both cats and smaller dogs would be permitted. If pets are permitted, there often are some additional limits. Sometimes (applicable to dogs) certain breeds aren't permitted, such as pit bulls. (I'm not debating the merits of such rules, just noting that they exist.) And the rules often will provide that if the pets attack other pets or humans, the condo board has the right to request their removal.
What you have to do is read the condo documents very carefully to see what is and what isn't permitted.

There are three properties in North Andover that meet your criteria. Paste the link in your browser to view the properties.
I would recommend your first step would be to contact your lender.
There are many variables when you are applying for a loan and locking in an interest rate:
* How long have you been employed at your current job?
* Your debt to income ratio.
* Your credit scores (FICO's)
* Price of home your purchasing
* Time frame of your purchase (as rates change)
Once you have your answer on what type of a loan & interest rate you qualify for, you should ask for a pre-approval letter from the lender.
At this point, an area Realtor will be able to look for properties that match the guidelines of what you can or cannot afford.
Best of luck!... more
Jim - The documents will be with the Association or the Association's management company. Many have them online for a fee. Now there are some that if you do not have an executed contract for purchase will not release them. They are, in a sense, the property of the Association and the owners.
But you could make friends with someone and they could give them to you.... more
Not necessarily. If you think about it, some homes could have dramatically different lot sizes and upgrades....which would not be affected by the price per SF....but it would affect the value of the home.... more
Yes you can move on. You can be pre approved with as many lenders as you want. It is only once you have an accepted offer in on a property that you will lock in with one. If you have someone in you network that you trust, you should use them. If you need some names of local lenders that I am comfortable reffering to my clients I can provide those to you upon request.
You may want to talk to the loan dept. of the bank to make sure your information isn't sitting in a file somewhere. Best of Luck!... more
