Kathy Burgreen answered:
Since you're a licensed realtor, why don't you call some of your colleagues who pay monthly advertising fees to Trulia. These agents have personal reps with direct phone numbers. I'm sure you can ask for a favor because their reps can fix your listing in about 5 minutes. In return, you will need to pay the favor back. ... more

Hi yvonnballwilton,

It doesn't look like the house is currently on the market based on the the listing status being Public Record vs. For Sale. Check out the listing here:

Hope that helps you a bit!

Adam Pensel answered:
Property crime is high in queensbury because much of the homes in queensbury are seasonal. Queensbury includes a large portion of homes that are actually located directly on Lake George.

In recent years, there have been strings of burglaries of seasonal homes, which are easy targets for experienced criminals.

Generally, Queensbury is a very safe area. The issue I stated above skews the numbers to look more severe than the way Queensbury really is. Hope this helps.

David - Appraiser answered:
Debbies - You are correct in considering the age, or year built, in choice of comparables, sold and active listings. Based strictly on the info provided in the two examples, it is highly unlikely the older home will appraise for the amount listed due to the age difference of the two and square footage difference. Then again, perhaps the newer one is grossly underpriced for the market area.

Now, yes, there are many unknown factors that would be required to accurately determine a realistic list price for both properties and appraised value of both, but it appears to me proper due dilligence on the part of one or the other listing agents, or possibly both, was not done in determining the list price of one or the other. Perhaps both have the same listing agent, or perhaps there was an input error in one or the other listings.

End result, it is very observant on your part and wise to question such discrepancies. You should be an appraiser!!!

Bill Eckler answered:

Banks are currently involved with a multitude of "distressed properties" that they need to dispose of. By making this disclaimer they are attempting to eliminate unnecessary and wasted effort by trying to identify serious buyers. You may be able to fin an agent that will show you the property but any offer would have to be accompanied by a letter of pre-qual.

In our opinion there are only benefits of being locks you into a rate that you may or may not use. If the rates drop, you can move on to another lender to improve your position. You are not bound to that lender.

Additionally, being pre-approved will allow you to move more quickly on a property that has desire to you. Many buyers of foreclosed property lose out on a great opportunity because they were not pre approved allowing others that are to jump in front of them in the purchasing process.

Thank you for asking your question.
Best wishes,

The Eckler Team
