Is your home listed for sale with a REALTOR and in your local MLS?? If so, you should contact your agent and find out why it's not appearing here. It's possible that your agent's MLS doesn't syndicate listings to this website.

OR...if it's a FSBO (for sale by owner), it won't be listed here.

Hope this helps!

Hello Criselybello,
You can use any experienced and knowledgeable realtor in your neighborhood. As far as the contract is concerned, speak with a good Real Estate attorney ( I can recommend you a few great ones) since the attorney is the one who will be putting together a contract and taking care of the legal side of the deal. ... more

Hello,

Sorry about your unpleasant experience. Given you are first time home buyers I would strongly recommend you working with an agent/broker who can guide you through the process and explain you everything that is happening step by step.
There are a lot of wonderful and extremely professional mortgage brokers that will be happy to help you, And if you haven't signed the contract and gave a deposit yet you can still involve an agent/broker who will represent you in the transaction and/or help you with your search.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions.

Dear Helpme,

I have been helping people buy their first homes for many years. I'd like to offer my tried-and-true Step-by-Step advice for First-Time HomeBuyers, and I wish you luck in your search.

First steps:

1. Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.

2. Get a referral to a good, local, real estate attorney. Call the attorney, retain the attorney so you have her information handy when you make an offer. Having that information at time of offer helps you demonstrate to the Seller how serious you are, and they will consider your offer with more interest.

3. Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.

4. Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

Put together your Team of real estate professionals and shop 'til you drop!

Good luck!

I would check here. Its where I found mine. There is a $10.00 fee, but its worth it. With all the time you'll spend going from real estate company to brokers fees....this is worth it! These are no fee apartments. Hope this helps.

after 20 years in Manhattan (studio in the basement of my east village place) I moved to Bushwick. I looked in:
Red Hook, (nothing under 1 M) Gowanus (small stuff just under 1M) Boerum Hill, (forget it!) Bed-Sty, (lots of great homes but architecturally not right for an artist like me) and then bingo I discovered Bushwick. Bigger housing types, the L train (best in the city) good vibes great mix of people and you can see the Empire State Building when you walk down the street. I have more space then I have ever had and rental property, a backyard, birds! Oh and PS bus service in Brooklyn is super. Here also, there is a community of artists very diverse and really great. In Manhattan there used to be a community but it has been fractured by the art market, or it seems like that. The artists whom I have met here have very consciously chosen to "create community" on every level, the political, social and cultural. This is really refreshing. There is a good range of age groups here also, in terms of artists, it's not just youngsters. (I am 56) My area is really close to all these small manufacturers: people working metal, lumber, junk yards, glass and mirror places, stone cutters, like ideal for an artist to get stuff made/materials. A great resource for me was the Bushwickbk.com website. I LOVE Bushwick and I would never move back to Manhattan! ( well maybe if I was a millionaire....)
Anthony Fernandez of ReMax was the listing agent on my property and he was great.

Ralph Windschuh answered:
If you're purchasing a home, my first suggestion would be to find a realtor that you feel comfortable with and trust and then hire that agent as a buyer's agent to represent you in finding a home and negotiating the best price. That will probably save you money or get your more house for the same money. There are several grant programs at the federal, state and local levels. Try SONYMA (State of New York Mortgage Association). They have closing cost assistance. FHA also has closing cost assistance - you can finance over the purchase price to assist with closing costs. If I can help, please contact me.
