No doc loans are essentially a thing of the past. If you happen to find one, expect it to be extremely expensive.

There are some smaller moving companies that move appliances and pianos that could be an option.
You may not get the same white glove treatment but it could save you money depending on how much stuff you have, and how comfortable you are with the service.
I've had clients use them in the past...but you will need to do the packing yourself which also helps the company from a liability standpoint...they are just moving, not doing all the packing....

You have asked this same question about this home and one on Simplex Ave. Both are not available to purchase.
If you are looking to buy a home you should be speaking directly with a local realtor who can help you find a home based on your needs/price , that is still available, and take your to view the homes that meet those needs.
Just curious have you even seen the homes you asked about? Were you considering buying a home sight unseen?

More likely expired or withdrawn from the market. As Michael mentioned, if sold and closed, the status should reflect that.

Yes, you can file a tax appeal.

In New Brunswick, as I know it.. There are tax abatements for some buildings/developments that were for 30 years that are in place. If a property sold, then the abatement was adjusted for the sale price by a ratio.. (Price going higher) But that was when the prices were low.. IIf the property is now sold lower than the abatement should adjust. But I am thinking you are not going to go below the original abatement.. as the whole build would have to be reassessed.

What building is this, Spring St? The Heldrich? I am curious as I know most of what is happening here and would like to inquire about it.

What does your agent say? They should know what they are selling!

Robert Spinosa answered:

It can make good sense to do this, but it's harder to answer any more specifically without knowing all the details. Generally, you'd see more individuals avoid purchasing with a HELOC if they planned to keep the new property indefinitely. The obvious reason being that the line of credit will most likely have an adjustable rate with a cap at or near 18%.

But in today's real estate economy, if the HELOC is the only way to get financing, it may by default be the best way.

I Lee Dickstein answered:
As you can see from the answers you have received, there are a lot of circumstances to each transaction. The biggest realization buyers have is that they are buying 2 things, a property, and financing. A real estate professional can help you sort out which properties match up with your financial position. Seek a trusted professional to review your situation. There is no one single answer for everyone. ... more

If you are working with an agent, the agent cam email you listings .Agents usually mention it in the mls.
If you have narrowed it down to neighborhoods , you can drive by the previous evening.Agents put up signs the previous day in many areas unless it is not allowed.
Agents advertise open houses in the Sunday newspaper.
There are sites such as Zillow, craigs list and trulia where you can look them up as well.
