Maybe I'm just accustomed to large Texas houses but those linked houses are tiny!! What's the square footage I didn't see? More land in Texas. My home is a tiny bit over 5000 square feet and 1.2 acres about. Any links to similarly priced Mass homes? ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a retired realtor, the TRUTH is realtors own the MLS system and intentionally limit the information sent to websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. The reason is realtors need buyers like you to call them for the missing information so they can hopefully convert you to a client. If websites like Zillow and Trulia had all the search filters that the MLS systems do, then buyers like you would have no need to call a realtor. This would slow down their business or put them out of business and no realtor wants that.

Items deliberately left off of real estate websites:

HOA fees
property taxes in states / counties that do not disclose property taxes - Texas does NOT disclose property taxes.
filters to search for specific types of homes - ranch, 2 family, townhouse, co-ops
rentals - whether pets are allowed or not
if home is located in school district that the website says it is

You can type "ranch home" in the Keyword search box but the results will not be specific to just ranch homes. Bottom line - a realtor can email you listings directly from the MLS with your specific criteria. No charge to you.

Amanda answered:
This is one of the many reasons you and the seller should each have had representation. That is something you need to pay for.Both you and the seller chose not to hire a professional realtor to represent you. No realtor is going to jump in the middle of this at this point. You should probably either just back out of the deal, or hire a lawyer ... more

Hello Janvirg, yes of course but you will need to be pre-approved to be able to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. The purchase in Santa Rosa start from 235k for 2bd 1.5ba condo, from 315k for 3bd 1.5ba condo and the single family homes start from 374k for 3bd 2ba home.

The single family home purchase in Sonoma start from 425k for 2bd 1ba home. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

Are you buying a primary residence or investment? Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs?

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Zip code 10009 is Manhattan. You cannot expect a crime free area in the middle of Manhattan. It's New York City. There is crime. If you want to live in an area with relatively little crime, move to the suburbs. You will find towns on Long Island (Great Neck, Port Washington, Glen Cove, Garden City, Jericho, Syosset), etc. have very little crime. In Westchester County, the following towns have very little crime - Mamaroneck, Rye, Pelham, Scarsdale, Eastchester, Irvington, Tarrytown, Ardsley, Harrison), etc.

There are also neighborhoods in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx that have very little crime. Examples: Bayside, Bay Ridge, Riverdale, City Island, Throgs Neck, Pelham Parkway, etc.
