You can do whatever you want! Keep in mind that an unfinished bath may not get you the highest price for your home.

ME answered:

I am just a buyer as you are... and I've learn a lot on this forum... so I own Trulia my opinion if this can help others...
Any agent would give you a CMA (comprehensive market analysis) as they have access to the MLS database and is their responsibility to do so anyway. But you can also see what what sold around and for how much.
I had a classic agent before - he was trying to make me buy one of his listing so he'll be dual-agent and receive the entire commission 5% .
Now I prefer to stay in top of my searching, know what's around and use REDFIN website & agents to help me with CMA and everything, because they rcvd salaries (not commission only if they make me buy). Also, there is a refund I'll receive from REDFIN at closing because their commission is less and they refund their customers...

It is a great time to buy., Prices are still very favorable for Buyers as Sellers are more realistic about what they can do on their price. Mortgage rates continue to be comparitavly low, and there is a good variety on the inventory. Buying in the off season is sometimes favorable to the Buyer as it gives you more of an advantage as theier are less Buyers in the off season. As I am a very experienced real estate agent who has worked in Closter for many years, I would be happy to hlep you. Please contact me at any time. thanks.

Working on one now with an attorney with specific short sale experience. She could be a very good resource to you if you decide to move forward with the purchase. I insisted that my seller utilize her services so that we had a better chance of success with a sale if/when that day came. We are getting very close and I am certain much is to the credit of the attorney that is coordinating with the two lenders. She works with both buyers and sellers.

If you would like her contact info, send me a quick email and I would be happy to provide it to you.

People that don't get a C/O for their rental probably haven't given their tenant a Truth In Renting booklet either and if so are in trouble with the state as well as the town.

You can find it here: (Landlords should read it 3 times)

Not only can you get fined if you don't get a C/O, in some towns you can't even evict a tenant if you haven't registered your property with the town as a rental. The Landlord Tenant court may not accept it. This may vary by county. C/Os vary by town. Don't become a landlord unless you know what laws apply. How about Lead Based Paint addendum to the rental agreement if the house was built before 1978.

The other answers you received here are good (except for the one from Peter Rogers).

I can tell you - if you think you can fight with the town and win you are likely to be disappointed.
