Hello Ms. Boyle

If your property is priced right, is in good condition and marketed well, it should go under contract in around 40 - 43 days according to the local absorption reports. Of course, your property doesn't currently appear as active in the local MLS systems, so it will likely be much, much longer, especially as Spring approaches and more homes enter the market in the Sequoyah High School area.

Still, all my best for a successful home sale.

If your home is for sale, your agent can modify the details. If not, you can log into Trulia and claim the home and modify certain aspects.

You cannot find that information out, Trulia has done a good job of building a community and I suspect they want to keep followers from being contacted by sellers or their agents since many may be interested neighbors or others that are just looking. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Step one, read your contract. Did you follow the terms you agreed to? If not, you may be liable. If the seller took their home off the market, away from other potential buyers, continued to pay their mortgage, utilities, insurance etc and made plans to move and purchase another home based on the promises you made in your contract, they have been damaged.
Chances are your contract limits the damages to the earnest money deposited, so you may get off lightly unless you had a legitimate escape from the terms of the sale that you completed properly. Just because you never deposited the earnest money doesn't mean you don't owe it.
I don't know how things are going to turn out, but based on what you've written so far it doesn't sound good.
What does your agent say?

As long as you qualify (as detailed below), you should be in great shape. Having said that, you really need to discuss your scenario with a seasones loan officer as there are guideline chnages on the horizon effective January 2014. What qualifies today may not in January.

I know a great lender in Alpharetta. I usually refer all my clients to him, and he has done loans for me on my personal homes. He owns his own mortgage company, and he can cut through the bureaucracy of other large banks. You can call John Norwood with Neighborhood Mortgage, Inc at 678-990-8604 or 678-549-9371. Good luck with your home search, and feel free to call me to assist you.

Robert A Whitfield Broker answered:
It has certainly been an interesting year with the worst inventory shortages Atlanta has seen in quite a while. I had to resort to creative strategies to find clients the ideal homes in certain neighborhoods a few years ago, so far in 2013 I have been able to find exactly what each client wanted in this market, but my buyers understand there are often less choice, and they need to be ready to act when the right home is found. ... more

Robert A Whitfield Broker answered:
The best way to answer such an open question is - it depends. You may like the cluster concept and layout - I personally think they are too tight and somewhat stiff looking. It is a personal choice.

I gave quite an extensive answer earlier, however, one of the most important aspects about buying any home are the decisions only you can make - "Does it suit my needs better than property or neighborhood X, and does it feel more like home".

Think about it - I can go in and verify the structure is sound and the construction is or isn't sloppy, and let you know the value trends, and help you submit an offer so the numbers are right for a great investment at a great price, but if you don't like the property none of that matters.

I can go on all day about the pros and cons of new construction technology, materials, and systems, over existing homes, and the pros and cons of existing homes with value added amenities like established landscaping, finished basement's, larger lots, and sometimes nicer upgrades than some new homes, but in the end it comes down to what feels like home to you.

Debi Key & Deryk Harper answered:
Natalia, I agree with Barbara, the right agent is crucial when purchasing a home. My husband & I work as a husband & wife top team for Keller Williams Realty. I go out "shopping" with the buyer & my husband comes in after we have found your home & negotiates with the Listing Agent. Some Realtors specialize in marketing Listings (Representing Owners whose homes are for sale) and some specialize in being a buyer's agent (representing your best interest as a buyer). We offer the best of both. My background is in contract paralegal work in that I would perform the real estate closings for the attorneys. My husband's background is in technology & negotiating. Once we have set down for our buyer's consultation (where you receive a 1st time homebuyer book) & feel comfortable working with us exclusively, we would allow you to "shop" just like a Realtor with our technology tools. All contracts we do are thru Docusign to make it easy for your busy schedule. Again, picking the right agent is crucial & you want someone to represent your best interest & break down the whole process for you. Feel free to call me 770-906-0317 with any questions. ... more
