We are selling our home and situations have made it that we are looking in a lower price range. Most homes where we have looked in this range are preforeclosures, or too small for our family.

Talk to a lender first.
You will then know how renting your condo will affect your buying plans.

Then start looking.
A good awareness of properties will help you know when there is a good one for you.

I've never heard of such a loan program. You may want to check with mass housing.

First of all a local REALTOR can help! I am finding homes are starting to be priced right, but we still have some that might be $20k OVERPRICED. Talk to a local REALTOR and they will be happy to help you. I just put one under agreemnt that was $175K and they won't even have to paint its that good. A full time REALTOR that gets into many homes durning the week can help you stop pulling your hair out, as you can see in my profile picture that has been done allready. Let me help find you a home! ... more

Melissa Mancini answered:
Hi Darlene,

I would say that they are both pretty close – if the listing agent is honest and doesn’t “inflate” a list price just to get the listing, which we see all too often in this market. Appraisers and Realtors have access to and use the same data when determining “fair market value”, although Realtors who are active have probably seen more homes that they use as comparables in person than an appraiser, so they are not just taking “data” from the MLS, public records or Banker & Tradesman into consideration. Unfortunately though, the appraiser has the final say. .

I determine my pricing the same way an appraiser would – although not all Realtors have the know-how to do this. I’m fortunate that my business partner is a licensed appraiser, so I know the values of the debits/credits they follow when say, comparing 2 identical homes in the same location, but one may need a new roof, or has a finished basement for example. So, when I conduct my CMA (comparative market analysis), I do it, “appraisal style”.

My pricing typically comes within 1-3% of the appraised value, but I am also taking active comparable listings into account to adjust for competition, days on market, etc, which an appraiser does not do.

Hello Lauren,

There is a lot still available but it is not yet built. If you would like to meet with the builder, I can arrange that. If you might want to see other listings in the area, I can help with that as well.

Hi Dennisport,

If you are unhappy with your current situation then the best thing is to improve it. If the problem is with the unit itself, then some simple, CHEAP redecorating may make a big difference. If it is the complex, the location, or the cost then you should find out what its current value is. You can ask a Realtor such as myself to do a FREE Comparative Market Analysis to determine how much you could sell it for in today's market. As stated in previous answers, you probably got a great deal on the property. This should allow you to walk away clean from the property or with a small profit that you can apply to a new place.
There is a chance though not as great that you could use it as an income property.
