I think your timeline plays a role, and look for incentives. If you put the house on the market at the price you want / REALTOR recommends - See if you get bites without the windows. Todays' housing market is insane for sellers.

If you decide to get windows, try to get incentive and MAKE SURE YOUR WARRANTY TRANSFERS. You could go through all of the hassle to only have a warranty for the short period you are there - Thus limiting the appeal for buyers anyway..

I would like to remove as soon as possible. I've already removed from Zillow. Will it automatically be removed from Trulia?

My first preference would be to try for a seller finance deal on the property for part of all of the transaction...find out what the seller's needs are and see if you can structure something.
Depending on your credit history, you could probably refinance and take a mortgage out for approximately 70% of the value of your existing investment property. Lenders will offer this but will require an appraisal as you'd expect to determine actual value. I'd recommend a fixed rate product...or you could do a variable rate equity line. Either way you are using the equity as the basis for your refi product.

I don't think there is much difference as far as quality. The main difference will be in aesthetic preference and budget. Brick homes tent to cost a little bit more, but are usually more desired. It all depends on what you want your home to look like and your budget. http://www.weatherteknj.com/Handyman-Services-Dunellen-NJ.html ... more

Sharon Felton answered:
You should approach all home improvement projects with the question "How much delight will *I* get from this upgrade?" First and foremost, you should appreciate the item you choose to upgrade. If you're not crazy about granite in the bathroom -- and it sounds like it's not a priority for you -- then don't worry about it. I agree that the granite in the kitchen has excellent resale value (plus it allows you to roll out dough sooo easily...). For the bathroom? Not so much. Good luck. ... more

Contact a local realtor in that area. They can be very creative and make phone calls to see if any of the inventory would be willing to rent with an option. Good Luck!

Out and About answered:
thanks for the responses. i was just curious specifically about the marlboro area. i've been hearing other communities such as rumson fair haven etc have been selling. and i know the marlboro market of $800k and lower is doing well. i just checked out homes listed for sales from 950k + and it seems like the homes on the MLS have been on the market a long time, some for 180 + days. as for supply and demand, if you have 20 + buyers come thru your house and there are about 15 comparable homes, and there are no offers made on any of the homes, what happened to these buyers? do they take a long time to make the decision? is interest rates rising causing the refrain? as real estate agents showing $1M homes do you screen these buyers to make sure the are qualified? ... more

The good news is hardwood is like jeans, it pretty much goes with all colors. I think a shade in the realm of a light maple would work best. It will also work well with grays and all the bright pops of color we are all painting our houses these days. Staying light, fresh and neutral is always the best way to go!

Best of luck Steve,

Hopefully you have obtained a good appraiser through your lender......Remember it is just the very recently sold homes that will be taken into consideration........Appraisers have a strict system that they should be Following. You should ask an RE agent for some help, as a friend......

But please remember,.As agents we can only nicely provide comps it the appraiser requests them...they may especially if they not from your area...Hopefully, a good appraiser will benefit from the help you agent will give them...Please be aware they also have access to all the comps...good luck with refinancing..

Windflower is located in the community known as Point De Jardin and it is a very nice community. There is a playground for children, the school buses usually stop at each cul de sac & Marlboro schools are a plus. If you select that cmty you will also have the advantage of being close to commuter buses and shopping ... more

Francesca Patrizio answered:
SR,

Here are some suggestions.

(1) Discuss the matter with your buyers agent
(2) Discuss the matter with your attorney and make sure you order your own survey (which I am assuming you may have already done.
(3) Interview the neighbors, they can hold a plethora of information; and in my view most importantly
(4) Go to the township (or ask your buyer's agent to do so) to determine their position and/or there are any past permit or report issues regarding issues with this basin.

Good luck!

Sincerely,

Hi Js,
I work in this area, Morganville is just a section of Marlboro and there are many nice homes to choose from.
If you want a younger home and just the Morganville section there are plenty to choose from. You really need to give us more specific parameters regarding what you are looking for Ie: style, size, price range, etc. Homes in this area range from the upper $400's to the millions. Feel free to contact me for assistance

HI DAN, I WAS BORN & RAISED IN MORGANVILLE. BACK IN THOSE DAYS, IT WAS MORE LIKE A STEVEN KING NOVEL TOWN, SANS THE MONSTERS. MARLBORO PROPER WAS A SMALL FARMING VILLAGE COMPLETE WITH A GRANGE MEETING HALL, SURROUNDED BY FARMLAND. THE FARMLAND IN MARLBORO IS NOW, FOR THE MOST PART, HOUSING DEVELOPEMENTS. MORGANVILLE SEEMS TO STILL BE IN TRANSITION WHILE RETAINING SOME OF THAT STEVEN KING TOWN AMBIENCE. THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DETERMINE DESIRABILITY IS YOU. ... more

Susan Vasile answered:
Both developments are similar. Woodcliff was built by Hovnanian and I do not know who built the Enclosure. I have a family member who lives in the Enclosure. They love it there and have 3 children. It is a great development with lots of children. it is close to Route 9 and it is walking distance to the bus stop. Woodcliff is close to Matawan train station. Woodcliff is hilly and the Enclosure is flat land. I previously owned a Hovnanian home and it was built pretty well and we had no problems with it. I hope this helps. ... more
