My 1200SF home is worth 20K less than what I paid for it. I do not plan to sell anytime soon, but want to improve the kitchen. I already remodeled my two baths at about 6K. Is it worth spending 10k+ on a kitchen remodel? Thank you for your help.

Just go to and click on ZESTIMATE and enter any address on a given block.
Don't take Zillow as the absolute is only a to estimate using the low end of the range to be conservative in this economy. If you need another resource to check against Zillow, go to and enter the address to cross reference.
Good luck in your search. Tom Hinz

Yes. He would be a dual agent in this situation which means he has divided loyalty to himself and to you. You do not have a fiduciary relationship with him as you would if you had undivided representation., which would be the case with using another agent. ... more

Cathy Smith answered:
In some cases it's not decided by the owner of the property or the property management, it may be up to the homeowner's insurance company! When the owner changes the property over as a rental changing his insurance policy, the insurance company may have regulations against certain types of dogs they deem as "aggressive". This can cause huge issues for dog owner's with their breed of dog on that list. Some insurance companies have up to 50 different breeds on their "aggressive dog list". Their reason for the list is due to the amount of those specific breeds that have bitten someone resulting in insurance payouts, making it difficult for responsible dog owners of certain breeds to find a place to live. You may want to check with a property manager to see if they can help narrow the search for you. Good luck to you and your pup! ... more

Joseph Hurley answered:
Eventhough an agent represents a particular real-estate company, I'd be more concerned with the person you hire to sell your home. It makes great sense to interview a couple of agents who are very familar with Ridgewood. Don't look for just a a knowledgeable agent, but also one you think you can work with. A good personality with strong negotiation skills is a must.. It will also benefit you to choose a company that has a strong Internet presence since 9 out of every 10 buyers begin their search for a new home on-line. Let me know if I can be of futher assistance. ... more

J answered:
Please reconsider this option/path to homeownership. I do agree with Don to a point and emphasize the "right situation" aspect of his response. The majority of these deals are not beneficial to a potential buyer. Depending on how the contract is written, which most are geared toward the benefit of the current homeowner, how would you benefit short and long term? What happens if you miss one payment? It is a huge gamble. Put A LOT of thought in to it before moving forward. Sometimes just renting is really the best option. Good luck to you! ... more
