Wolfert & Wrenn Real Estate Team answered:
Hi Dario,
Often times they will price the home to generate multiple offers. I would suggest that you have an agent pull the comps for you so that you know what the value is. If you are able to pay above list price and the home is worth it then offer what you are comfortable with. Keep in mind that this is not just an investment but the home you will live in, if that is the case. Keep your offer as clean as possible and have your agent keep in touch with the listing agent. ... more

Great location and schools. I happen to know of a few rentals, however, this is not uncommon.

Sold one and have one under construction in there. Good value, good builder and almost built out. Not a huge community, good location to everything. Prices have increased a good bit from the first few but still compares well to what's out there.

It is location, location and location. I did negotiate a price for a client but then the deal did not materialize as my clients had some financing issue. Autry Mill is excellent and has better rating than Webb Bridge. Feel free to email me if you need any more details. I will be happy to assist you. ... more

Hi Adm:

Unfortunately, I don't think this issue is settled. We've heard good arguments on both sides. I think the best you can do is to google "high voltage health risks" and start reading. You should also consult a qualified health expert like your doctor. One webpage that may be of particular interest is:

So, my friend Hank sent me a link to this Q&A because he knew that I needed to see this reedonkulousness.

Some of the brilliance bombs that Hank dropped on the knowitall engineer and the cheapskate attorney made me laugh out loud, chuckle incessantly, and generally hang on every word across 31 answers.

Dario - you got all the right answers. And, thank you so very much for asking this question because you somehow attracted a couple of really interesting commenters. Commenters who are now reeling from Hank's can of whoopass...

I am surprised that no local agent has responded to your post - if you are still in the market for a foreclosure or any home - contact me to discuss how I can assure you will not have to worry about the condition of the home or risk exposure to defects an inspector might miss.

Mark Laycock answered:
Hello fgroup,

You have touched on an element of human nature that strikes us all: CURIOUSITY! Everyone wants to know if they have made the best offer. The listing agent cannot disclose confidential information. But, let's say you do ask. What if they tell you no, it's not the highest offer. Are you going to put in a higher offer?

In addition, as most everyone has pointed out, there are multiple reasons why the bank may not accept the highest bid offer. Will you want to go through each line item to decide if your offer is the best on those issues too? Do you have the nearest closing date? Do you have the shortest due diligence period? Is anyone else offering cash deals with no financing contingency? Did anyone put up more earnest money? Did we ask for too much in seller paid closing costs? The Bank with the REO assets has criteria, which can change from day to day, and asset to asset.

The bottom line is don't ask. Make your highest and best offer that suits you and your needs. Don’t get trapped trying to second guess the bank, the listing agent, and the other bidders. Always remember that the banks control the process. Be patient and hope for the best!

I'm sure this person has already moved in, but I couldn't resist to say that HUD is cracking down on Builders' preferred lenders. This, luckily, is a thing of the past as new RESPA guidelines forbid lenders from keeping a person from shopping and HUD will fine builders who offer incentives to use their lender. I've already had 2 clients in May who shopped the preferred lender and I was able to offer a rate much lower and closing costs lower as well. Sad that those preferred lenders would take advantage of people just because they think they have the market cornered. OK. I'm off the soap box now... ... more
