The fees are about $475.00 but the HOA has changed from builder managed to residents managed. They are ruining the community. I would not buy here.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor in the NYC area, the answer is NO! The reply from Alan is wrong. The reason is if you did NOT sign a broker agreement, the agent will need proof in writing that you owe a commission. Since the agent has no written proof (no signature from you), how can the agent prove in court that you owe anything? Any agent can say they showed you a rental apartment, but it will be your word against theirs. In court, anything verbal is thrown out and a judge will want something in writing.

You scored big on this one - Congrats! If this were outside NYC, it would be nice to pay the agent a commission since there are fewer agents and less population. But in NYC, you can easily get away without paying. Most agents in NYC collect the brokers fee upfront BEFORE they show you any rentals. This way they already have your signature.

Sheryl Arndt answered:
Nowadays you may qualify ONE DAY after a short sale, foreclosure or deed in lieu with 20% down. You have 3 years to wait before you can consider FHA 3.5% down from a minimum 580 fico score. You can consider conventional 4-7 years after.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

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.

Duffy Realty in Atlanta has a model that costs $500 up front and .0075 at closing. You then choose what you are willing to pay a buyers agent. We did 2%....so for a mere 3% we sold a home $30K above the appraised value in less than 2-months. You get the same exposure you would get from any other agent....you do have to do a bit more yourself....but on a $300K home $9K in savings is worth it! ... more
