95% is available as long as your loan amount stays below 1mil. Also your credit must be above 700. There are single loan options with no pmi, and of course piggyback combos. In most cases the combo loan makes better sense. Please contact us if we can assist.

The Ann Arbor market will tell you that YES, is the answer. You may not recover more than you spent, but you will recover it in TIME that your home is on the market. Call me and let's look at it together, if you have not yet sold. The biggest return on investment is always the kitchen.

Ann Arbor in general is less likely to have foreclosures as it an increasing market and most people understand to sell before it gets to this point even with a Short Sale. Waiting/looking for just foreclosures may not yeild the best deal either. Knowing the area and keen negociating may be your best tactic. Ginny Miller may be on the right track that you could interview agents, an agent working for you can set up searches for you that may help.
Good Luck with your quest for knowledge.

There are currently no loan programs available that would allow this situation. There are some good federal programs available that might allow you to qualify on your own. The best way to explore your options is to apply and have an experienced loan officer present you with all your options. ... more

2Vegas, if the whole community had a landscaping overhaul, chances are it was in the works for a long time. I would start with the homeowner board, if not satisfied go to the next association meeting. Ask to see the notes where this was decided.
If they have all of this then ask for permission to plant a larger tree and some bushes around the window. Unless they did this on all the buildings chances are you can re-plant.

Some condo communities do massive overhauls of landscaping on a rotation basis.

I was in this house just yesterday!
It is beautiful. It is the student built house in the Foxfire neighborhood.
Are you working with a REALTOR already? Because if you are not you could work with me and I could have answered this question with a simple phone call.
Feel free to call me at 734/ 645-2737.

Some good local agents have responded.

"The seller is very firm about the price" I'm assuming you have a Buyer's Agent (signed a Buyer's Agency Agreement) assisting you and were told by the agent the sellers are firm. If it was the listing agent that told you this, remember, they are working for the seller and may only be trying to get the most for the home.

Is the house worth this price? I suggest having your Buyer's Agent run comparable sales within the subdivision. That will give you a range of value. They can also run a Statistical Comparison of sales in the sub which will give you a range of value based upon the homes State Equalized Value.

Are you recommending to by it? That is a decision only a home buyer can make. This is a business decision, please take some time to look at all the facts before making an offer. Agents have offered additional facts in their responses.

It is funny how questions come in during a Sunday while I am at Open Hosues and I am late to answer. I have data that show some A2 areas showing an increase since last year so you may be just fine. I guess I need more input from you.
I am not going to read everyone elses replys so my reply may be redundant. Whatever you do do not let someone flatter you with how much your place in worth, try to understand the market and hit it!
Did you read the A2 News today? I have seen a steady increase in buyser traffic since early December.
Today I held a house Open that I listed on Tuesday last week (we have already received one offer that we have counter offered). It was my last Open House and we had 15 sets of people through it, there is a market for the right house for the right price. Two of them spoke of writing offers and another two are very interested.
The best advice is to price it right! There's an old phrase that sticks in my head 'a little less, a little more'. Price it right and get more, rather than the wrong price and dropping later.... Good luck!
