In pre foreclosure just means they are behind and the foreclosure process ha started. Many times owners cant sell as they owe more than it is worth. You can not make them respond if they dont want to or cant sell. The bank does not own it, so they cant sell it either. ... more

Setting of property corners, determining your boundary lines is best done by a licensed land surveyor. Land surveying is a state profession and is strictly overseen by your state licensing board. Practicing land surveying (setting your own corners) without a license is more than likely a violation of state laws. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Ask your broker. If you listed it for rent, I'm not sure if you have a claim for commission if it sells. NY law, your listing agreement and your company policy may all come into play.
I'm assuming you are a licensed agent here. If not, commissions are not generally available for non-licensed people.

Can you rent it out at a reduced price compared to other local condo rentals? If the building is not habitable and the financials are analyzed the banks will not issue a mortgage. Your other hope is a cash buyer who buys the unit 'AS IS'. ... more

Mike Young answered:
As a 203k consultant you need to provide a quasi home inspection... it is actually a "203k compliance inspection" that addresses the 35 key elements in the HUD Guideline. A "home inspection" typically recommends other professionals look at things. Example: a home inspector may suggest an engineer look at a crack in the foundation or a roofer look at the roof if there is an issue with it. On the other hand a 203k inspector will required or "specify" repairs and not put it off to another professional. ... more

I realize that this question was posed over a year ago but I would like to dispel the notion that 203k loans are hard. They are only hard if you are working with an inexperienced team that does not have the support staff to help you through the process. We have a dedicated staff focused on the 203k loan from start to finish. The major "hard" parts are getting contractor bids and some additional paperwork but these hard parts can be minimized by working with a lender who knows how to navigate the process. We average 35 days from contract to close when clients buy in to what it takes to get these loans closed- and that really means being on top of things and doing things as are needed. The lenders that only offer you a streamline 203k and not the full 203k are not giving you the best set of options. The full 203k is a great product and gives you the the benefit of having a 203k consultant. Education and knowledge are key to successful 203k transactions.

If anyone would like to speak about how a 203k can help you to buy or renovate your existing home feel free to reach out to me to discuss your options.

Sharon Marinaccio answered:

As mentioned below, your best bet is to check with each town's building department. Please don't assume if you drive around a town and look at different garage locations you'll find your answer. Each town has it's own ordinances and some homes may have been grandfathered.

I know Woodcliff Lake does not have an ordinance regarding garage doors facing the street. I recently called the building department to ask this very question for my own personal reasons. If you get someone on the phone you will most likely get your answer right away. If you are considering buying a home with hopes of renovating a garage, please be sure you check with the town first. You could be very disappointed if zoning does not allow for your vision.

Good luck!

My thughts:

(1) The accuracy of township assesements is traditonally 15% plus or minus the actual assesement.

(2) Consider thi year in wihich this assessemtn took place

(3) Consider the market decline since the assesessment

Involved all of the above factors in determining true current market value.

Love and Peace,
