We are looking very seriously for direct lakefront property. I have written off PECKS LAKE (and most of Lake George) for taxes ALONE. Think about it: they could GIVE you the house and you would be paying those exorbitant taxes FOREVER. Also, they woul;d go up every year. Almost guaranteed. THAT is why there is so much for sale on PECKS and also why sellers have had to drop their asking price below what they paid. Resale value needs to take into account whether or not you could ever resell it. The appraisal is merely an insurance estimate of cost to rebuild it, with a land value tossed in, Not very meaningful, unless you are a tax assessor looking to jack up taxes. ... more

Hey Mom,

Remember all those papers you signed? Well it's time to drag 'em out of storage.

Unfortunately it's impossible for any of us here on Trulia to know what type of loan you have or its terms and conditions. You'll have to read your documents. Consider calling your lender (loan officer) too, as they should be able to provide assistance. If you still have questions or need help, consult an attorney. Better to spend a few bucks for a consultation fee than pay big bucks for a mistake!

Best of luck!

Any local agent can help you with your search, therefore consider working with an agent of your own; also check local print media for by owner properties, word of mouth, etc.

bummer,Hope you got your money if Not you'll probably need an attorney, Your Realtor should have explained this ALL to you and SHOULD be Helping you. Since you're on here: I'm Wondering if you signed on for the dual/designated agency,

if you did, then you're on your own there's No Fiduciary and No Legal Representation with dual/designated agency. FYI You Are Always Entiltled to YOUR OWN AGENT!!

Do Hope you get paid, Too bad your agent didn't Know the law/rules and cost you $$$ removing asbestos etc.

ADK Realty Does Not Practice Dual/Desginated Agency I think it is intellectually dishonest -Telling both parties 'I'll work for you" Knowing that legally it's caveot emptor for buyers and sellers and no recourse when 'it' hits the fan like this.
Dual agency some offices love since it's Great for agents they have no responsibility, but not so great for sellers/buyers when things go wrong, they are on their own. That's why Dual Agency is Illegal in Most States-but not NY.... In NY if you'd had your license for 15yrs you never need more education or classes either! sadly dinosaurs don't know the new laws & are not familar w/agency.. Good Luck to you!!
