Probably can. Your realtor should know. If not, you should contact a real estate attorney.

This Bill is being pushed by many State Reps including Mario Scarvello. There has been many similar Bills that go nowhere. There are too many state school districts that do not have such high taxes that resist. Our area school districts must be smarter about building and spending. They have been blowing money during good times and then it cost trifold in bad times. Giving 6-8 administators 30% increases in pay while laying off teachers do not help either. It is not doom and gloom it is still a great value to buy a home and send your kids to good schools. ... more

The fact that the Listing Agent is only accepting cash offers makes me believe you would not be able to obtain traditional financing on this house. If you would like to see the property & you do not have a Realtor working for you, I would be happy to show it to you. The house sold for 200K in 2006. However if you are not a cash buyer then I would be happy to help you find something else. ... more

Joseph A Kargol answered:
Hello BNunez,

Usually when there is only one photo for a house, in my mind, it raises a red flag. You most often see listings with only one photo that are foreclosures. Some foreclosures are in bad condition and the agent doesn't want to turn away possible customers by showing how bad the house is.

This property is not a foreclosure, however, it is a short sale listing. It has only been listed for 20 days and this is the first listing for the house. Short sale means that the bank holding the mortgage may be willing to accept an offer less than the mortgage amount to avoid having the house go into foreclosure. It's possible since the listing is new, that the owner is trying to stage the house and more photos could be coming after that is done. It's also possible that the house is in bad condition and that's part of the reason for the low price and the lack of photos. In a case like this, you really can't tell without visiting the house.

If you'd like any other help with this property or any others, please feel free to contact me.
