Well, since you asked this question back on July 14, I will assume by now, 6 weeks later, opinions are moot, and you made the decision to proceed, or walk away pending negotiations with the seller..

I am sure everyone would like to know the final outcome.

Unfortunately, since Trulia doesn't currently send out notifications for new responses, you probably aren't even reading this!

I would be happy to send you a link to homes that have sold in North Harbour. Are you interested in a specific timeframe? Or, a certain type of house? If you want to email me with specifics, I'll get that information to you.

How close would you like to be to the downtown area? As Susan stated, any of the Harbour neighborhoods. The Harbour neighborhoods are in close proximity to the downtown area, along with Morse Lake (which is a beautiful lake in Hamilton County), close to schools, and are mature neighborhoods. I have several clients and friends that live in these communities, all of which have children. The harbour communities offer their residents the ability to join the beach club. If you're golfers, Harbour Trees golf course can be found in North Harbour subdivision. North Harbour has nights in the park during the summer. The neighborhood meets for music, food and all the neighborhood kids play on the playground while the adults mingle. Check out this link on North Harbour:

If you are looking for a bit newer communities, there are several newer neighborhoods, north on Hague road from 32.

Additionally, the Wellingtons offer you an option for an established community, within a short distance of downtown Noblesville. One last recommendation is Sommerwood. (Off 146th, in between 37 and Allisonville Road). This community within a few miles of downtown Noblesville but close to 37 for easy transit.

Here's some links on these subdivisions:
Wellington North:
Wellington Northeast:
North Harbour:
Sourth Harbour:

I would be happy to email you some homes in each community to help you get a feel for the different housing additions.

The question is how serious are you in wanting to own your own home in the near future? Obtaining and maintaining good credit isn't that difficult. My company is in the business of improving credit scores so you can qualify for a home loan. But it will involve some investment on your end. If you would like more information I would love to speak to you to help you understand where to start.

Best of Luck;

I truly suggest you pick a buyers agent who will find homes that meet their needs for them. Looking online can be a bit much for first time home buyers.

Christina Hayes answered:
Active listing, with contingency means they have an offer, but for whatever reason the buyers can't close until they either sell their home or something of the nature, thus meaning they (the buyers) want to purchase made an offer to purchase, but have allowed the sellers to continue showing the home and accept other offers, in which the buyers will have 1st pick to close earlier or withdraw their offer.

Pending Listing means the sellers have accepted an offer and aren't accepting any other offers until either the buyers close, or they withdraw their offer.

Marita Topmiller answered:

Most Realtors don't charge an upfront fee. There are some exceptions.
As someone mentioned below, limited service companies often charge
upfront fees. Some full service Realtors will sometimes charge an upfront
fee to a client who wants extra advertising above and beyond. For example,
you want your executive home to appear in the NYT or WSJ real estate
section - that's typically an add on. But it's all negotiable.

Remember, as someone else said below, though Realtors are putting in many,
many hours for free and absorbing hard costs as well, most homes sell as full
service listings without any upfront fees or add ons.

Thanks for asking and contact me if you'd like to speak about your home,

Would be glad to help you find a rental if you can provide more information about how much you want to spend on rent. Just send me an email or call. Have you talked to a lender to find out how much you need to do to get your credit up? If you need a resource, I can help with that, too. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:

If you are considering purchasing a newly constructed home in a PUD, planned unit development it's unlikely that you'll be able to find a builder that is willing to discount their product. Since they ave a commitment to those people that have bought previously to not devalue their homes by discounting more recent construction. Many builders will offer other incentives to attract buyers without angering other owners. Lease backs, favorable interest rated, discounted or free upgrades etc. help new buyers by offering them more for less in this way.

We recommend that before making a commitment, you visit, collect information and stuty all of the builders offerings in your location. In this way you'll be able to compare the products and be prepared to negotiate based on your accurate knowledge background.

AND, you will find yourself in a much better position by working via your own personal agent, as opposed to the builder's sales representative.

Good luck,

Marita Topmiller answered:
Hi Mindy,

I've sold a few Centex homes that my buyers are still happily living in.
Centex is committed to building quality homes. A quality home will
require less call backs too.

Centex had hired a new Superintendent the last home I sold and I had to ask
for more "fixes" than usual. But I was able to get them back to make the repairs
needed before our closing, so my buyers are happy with their service.

Get an agent who will help you keep an eye on things and help you make design
choices that won't blow your budget. Having your own buyers' agent helping
you will not cost you anything. And Centex pays Buyers' Agents out of their
advertising budget, so it will not affect the price you pay.

Centex does a good job keeping up with consumer wants, so they build value into
their homes. Continued value is very dependent upon location and the types of
design choices you make.

Feel free to contact me if you would like my help.

First of all, thank you, sir, for your service to our country.

As a vet, there are specialists available to you to assist in the process of purchasing a home. This can be accomplished whether you purchase locally, nationwide, or internationally.

I'd encourage you to work with a realtor who has this ability not only on the national level, but internationally as well. This process doesn't need to be cumbersome to you. Let a professional go to work for you!

Shanna Rogers answered:
Hi Ohnmarnyi,

There is no magic percent. Have your Realtor do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) using Sold comps within a 1 mile radius of the property (the closer, the better) that have Sold within the last 3 months. This will give you current market value and that is what you should base your offer on.

Good luck.

My NC Homes Team answered:
Once an offer has been accepted and signed by the Seller and any changes initialed by both you and the Seller your offer is now a contract. Typical contracts have certain contengincies written into them, such as a mortgage contingency and home inspection contingency,m either of which may give you a reason to terminate the contract without forfeiting your earnest money deposit. You should speak to your agent (hopefully you have a buyer broker and are not using the listing agent) as well as consult with an attorney.

The worse case scenario is you may have to give up your earnest money.

I wish you good luck.
