Victory Property Management answered:
Typically a bedroom is considered a Master Bedroom if it has it's own private bathroom. A shared bathroom with another bedroom would not make it a master. For resale value, typically the Master Bedroom does better if it is on the main level.

In addition, as it stands right now, the first floor bathroom would be considered as a full (tub, toilet, sink). Adding a walk-in shower may add market appeal but will not add much value.

Ryan Harlan-Expert Broker answered:
Hi Nodoff,

In my experience ( depends on size/price of home ).

1. Home Inspections
$350-500 avg

2. Pest ( termite report )
$75- 100 avg

3. Appraisal
$ 375 - 500 avg

PLEASE NOTE - Don't try to save yourself 50-100 bucks and go with the cheapest company, like in everything else you pay for what you get, especially on one of the biggest investments you can make. Good home inspectors are worth their weight in GOLD !!

Let me know if you need a few local A+ referrals. Please provide answer feedback.

Thanks Ryan 704-608-476 7 Cell or Text

Unfortunately there are the good the bad and the ugly in all professions, just not Realtors.

The biggest factor in whether you should use an Agent, or not, is the trust factor you have with that particular Agent.

If your guy is the one you believe will run through a wall for you, you wouldn't dare use anyone else.

I would like to apply for that position.

If the house was auctioned off & the lender was the highest bidder. In my openion the house will come as an REO and will be listed to their REO agent. You could approach the bank with in 30-40 days from the auction date and they could let you talk to their management company who would deal with their REO's, before listing with the listing broker.
Good Luck

There are not specific schools that I know of. However, there are several subdivisions with community pools and have their own swim teams.

Keith Sorem answered:
The fact is that the average Days on Market (DOM) is not really as important as your personal situation. Let me explain:
When a home hits the market, the most interest occurs during the first two weeks. We expect 10-12 showings or one offer during the first two weeks if it is priced correctly. The MLS statistics prove that homes that sell in the first 30 days sell for closest to asking price, homes that sit, say at 120 days, are currently selling in my market 93.6% of asking.

Remember that the buyer the first sees your home sees it with a Realtor 90% of the time, so if you are not getting showings, the Realtors are not sitting around having coffee, they are showing other properties that they (and their buyers) think off more value. Ask your Realtor to pull the comps, ask to see the sales for the last month and look that the list price versus sale price by 30 day increments.

So if you are thinking about time your move, discuss with a Realtor that knows the local market, your home, and your personal situation so you can develop a plan that will help you move smoothly from your current home to your new home.
