Boo - this is a real estate site .......not a consumer information center.....no one can really answer your question......check with the FL laws - try google.....or...........simply go into the dealership, show them the advertisement... and see what they say.
Often internet prices are better than prices you find in stores..... I have found the stores usually do not match the internet price.
Also - read the fine print - there might be other requirements in order to take advantage of the lower price.... more
Get a new agent.
Oops. Sorry. I'm not supposed to say that.
But of course you have more bargaining power. Depending on the seller and the seller's motivation, you may only have slightly more bargain power, or a whole lot.
Whether or not it's a good idea to pay all cash is another matter entirely. Part depend on how much better a deal you can get. If you could knock the price down by $20,000 with an all cash offer, it'd likely make a lot more sense. However, you also don't want to spend every last liquid cent you have on an illiquid investment like real estate. Also, of course, there are tax implications. And finally, of course, there's your comfort level/peace of mind. You're obviously comfortable paying all cash, and you'd obviously like to get a better deal by paying all cash. But for those other factors--your cash liquidity and the tax implications--you should check with your accountant.
Just a few additional cautions: Make sure you're not overpaying. Even if you get something knocked off the listing price because you're paying cash doesn't mean that you're getting a really good deal. Your agent should run CMAs on such properties and let you know what they're really worth. And don't buy just because you think you're getting a good deal. It's pretty broad to say that you're open to "a town home, condo, or house." But you're going to have to live there. Narrow it down a bit. Figure out whether you want your bargain to be a townhouse, a single-family home, or a condo. That should occur right up front.
Hope that helps.... more
I have closed numerous short sales in Union NJ and surrounding towns over the past year. I also have several others currently in negotiation.

Feel free to contact me and discuss further. the best way to reach me is on my Cell number -- 908-787-2804.

Questions for rebuilds should be numerous but should start with the following;
How much of the original house remains? (ie. was it taken to the studs or not)
Was plumbing and electrical repaired or replaced? (replaced is better depending on age)
May we see the building permits for the project?
Has the project cleared final inspections?
Is there a builders warranty on the property?
How much of the original house was recycled into this project? (could be as much as 100% which is ok as long as the materials were repurposed properly)
Start with those questions and good luck.... more

Hi Tina, funny you should bring this up - I am sitting beside an agent who is working on a short sale - in this case he is representing the seller, and from his body language, moans and groans I would say, yes, that is an affirmative on the short sales are frustrating beasts category. I represented three buyers last year in successful short sales and while it was exceedingly frustrating at times, and dragged on much longer than anyone would have expected or hoped, by and large, we were working with agents that communicated well. Good communication makes such a difference. If you start off with poor communication, it does not bode well.

Sounds like you are referring to the asbestos shingles. If the shingles are in good condition, you may have no concern. Some townships will require removal prior to installing new Siding. Removal may require a lined dumpster and additional cost. Others townships may allow you to install "nailers" and place the new Siding over the old shingles. Check with the local building inspector.

Yes you can add closing cost to your purchase price but, everything is going to have to be approved by the bank that holds the note on the property. I just had a listing that was a short sale. We added closing costs in for the buyer the only stipulation was that they did not pay our commission on the closing costs portion of the purchase price.
Hope this helps... more
good afternoon.......it is not going to work conventional either for the same reason, conventional would be even tougher to get approved..............the only issue with the file is the self-employment issue with such a short time doing it.....same line of work is fine.....use only your income or like what was suggested....you will need a non-occupant co-borrower.......best of luck to you.bob mcclure- success mortgage partners- plymouth, michigan......... more
The post below may help you - 3 parts in particular. However, they are no substitution for your buyer's agent's advice, as your agent knows you, your constraints, the market, the property and other specifics that no one here can possibly know.... more

The question shouldn't be "IF the tank is tested"....but ....WHEN it is tested. It would be foolish to buy a home without having the tank tested BEFORE you close. If oil has leaked from the tank, it is a big environmental issue, and the seller should be responsible for any remediation. If it is an active tank, the seller might even have insurance which would cover any leakage . You can't just forget there is an underground tank and put a new one in the basement. Proper paperwork needs to be done to remove or fill in any existing tank, and yes, teating is part of that. Questions about underground tanks are part of most seller's disclosures now used when listing a home.
If you were working with an agent, I am sure this would have been made clear to you. If you are purchasing a home on your own, seek legal advise before finalizing anything in regard to the tank and any other pertinent issues. Having an abandoned oil tank is something that needs to be addressed now, prior to closing!
Good luck - and get some legal advice!
