The best advice to give is to get with a lender you trust and let them guide you, it is out of the Realtors expertise.

Hello Janet,

Thank you for trusting Trulia agents with your real estate questions. Since the real estate market is heating up and interest rates are on the rise, here in North Carolina, it may be in your best interest to get a short term rental situation. A one year lease may cost you more in an increased buying price and higer mortgage interest rate. There are extended stay hotel/motel situations that you may investigate and take advantage of, while you search for your new home. In the long run I believe that you will come out ahead with a short term rental. Please contact me if you need any further information. My direct number is 336-456-0810. Good luck.

I'd suggest calling Remax Realty Consultants. They have a property management division
and may have something in that area. If they don't they may be able to refer you to someone
else who can help. ... more

I believe that you should contact the folks at Greensboro Rent A Home on north Elm Street. They can help you find the right home in the Northern School District. I was on their web site and saw a few homes in that area. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Tom Heslin 336-456-0810. ... more

Yep, same in our area. Please be very careful of who owns the home and also these tend to go very quickly. You may have someone whom is legit but the home is already taken or there may be something not right with ownership. Speak with a local real estate professional and let them know your situation ... more

Thank you for all the insight- I wish I had used this system sooner. If things fall through, I will be back in touch with one of the experts.

The upset period is over and yes the bank i guess out bid me. The bank over bid where i wanted to go. The owner is still the builder as of right now. They even still have it listed.

Does anyone know what a fair price per square foot is these days for a home about to be foreclosed on?

Crystal answered:
Unsure of any specific formal process, however the agent must submit all offers and go through negotiations per offer submitted. As J stated, in good practice you can use a Multiple Offers doc and request Highest and Best offers by specific date and time. ... more

Michael is correct you could have a couple of real estate brokers do a comparative market analysis of your home. They will analyze your home and compare it with other homes near you that have sold recently and are still for sale to come up with a market value. This can give you a good indication of what you can ask for when you go to sell your home.

If you have any more question feel free to contact me directly.

Elizabeth is correct in the appreciation rate for that area. Of course we can not predict the future only give you past trends and answer any questions on future developments and projects near you as they come to light. Yes Reedy Fork is a still new community and will be growing for years to come. While it is competition if you decided to sell in Covington it is also bringing buyers attention to the area as well as new shopping, and other atributes to improve the area. So while Reedy Fork is competition it is also a possible aid in helping the area as a whole. ... more
