I am also looking for floor plans of homes I may be considering buying. Using Feng Shui to buy a house is one reason people want to see a floor plan before buying.

Are there any services in California that may do floor plans. The 3D floor plans are awesome and expensive.
Does anyone know if HOA's might have them?

Not only does the Town of Brookhaven has policies in place for illegal rentals, the Incorporated Villages have their own infrastructure as well. They vary from Village to Village, however, must be followed with regard to number of occupants and square footage. Please give me call for further information. (516) 635-1667. ... more

Technically, yes. Your issue is whether you are violating city or town housing codes and fire regulations. What will happen if you get caught? I'm not familiar with the codes and regulations in your community but you need to know overcrowded housing was reported in Rockland County, NY and Queens,NY. The owners were penalized.

Check all codes and regulations before allowing tenants to rent.

There is always a market for a 2 bedroom home. It is a great opportunity for people to downsize and or help those looking for a starter home. Pricing it right would be the key to a quick and smooth sale.

Kelly Pessis answered:
They could be obligated if it is a full price, non-contingent (all cash) offer and it is not a multiple offer situation. That is the spirit of the listing contract and published price, getting them to conform could be another matter- as in a legal tort. We get this from time to time in our market where you have a lot of cash buyers. Unless you are willing to gamble on no contingencies and have all cash to play with,, best to just find a seller that is going to be more cooperative. ... more

Jenny Su answered:
Is there a problem between you and your landlord? If you have a month to month lease, landlord has right to ask you vacate in 30 days and it does not matter any reason. Same right as you have, you could inform landlord you are leaving in 30 days and it does not matter any reason. If your landlord does not have a rental permit for the cottage, then it is another problem that your landlord need to answer to town. Because you agreed to a month to month lease, My recommendation is start looking and vacate. It is not worth to fight to stay. ... more

Bill Heydenberk answered:
It sounds like you may want to continue looking if they are already working with an offer that is higher than you wish to go. In our area it is unethical for the seller's agent to divulge what another offer came in at, or worse, to divulge what the seller is doing. There is a possibility that seller has directed his agent to do so. If that is the case they will disclose your offer to other parties as well. Best wishes. I hope you find that perfect fit. ... more

Peter Andres GRI CBR CNE SRES answered:
The seller has options: to accept the offer, reject the offer or reject the offer & counter with another price. If there was a rejection with no counter, the seller has no obligation to you after the rejection. It's up to you and your agent to make another offer, if you want. ... more

Both ladies who answered this question before me are right on track; in so many words use comps wisely and do the comp analysis by the book. In any pricing situation you have to think for yourself and use every tool you can find that makes sense. Usually, if you do the right thing the price will come to you. ... more
