It's a good time if you can afford it and it's right for you. No one knows what prices are going to do in the future.

There really is no reason to delay. If they are within their contingency period, they are allowed to cancel and get their deposit back. This way you can get it back on the market asap and sell it to someome who is going t follow through. ... more

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
You can but the risk is getting your deposit back. I don't know the details of your cancellation but if the seller doesn't sign your deposit is held in escrow until everything is resolved. If you get into another contract and need that money you could be in trouble. The agent may think all is fine but you never really know what a seller is going to do after they talk to their friends, family, ect and decide they should get your deposit, right or wrong. ... more

WOW! My friend you are not in Honest USofA any more. Poor grandpa and grandma has been put up in health care facilities. It's run by millennia now. Learn the trick and don't hesitate calling the banker direct and don't feel shy about offering some extra commission to negotiator, but your right hand should not know what your left hand is doing. ... more

Danielle Sweet answered:
This is difficult to answer without having seen the agreement and having understood the terms. Without knowing the appraised value and if the buyer's funds would cover the difference. I love the question... Can you provide some more information?

Please contact me if you would like any more help!

Have a great afternoon!

Sandhya Murthy answered:
I would highly suggest you seek the advice of a local real estate agent expert. Every market is different. In the bay area we are dealing with a lot of ALL CASH offers which dont have loans associated with appraisals. There is a multiple offer frenzy and buyers are willing to pay extra out of pocket just to move into this neighborhood. Talk to your realtor to understand risks associated with removing the appraisal contingency. I am highly against it, but in a low inventory and multiple offer market it may be the only option if you really want the house. If you can not pay the difference of the appraisal then you absolutely should not remove the appraisal contingency. ... more

Greg Batchelder answered:
If you have the Assessors Parcel Number (APN) for the property, check the Sacramento County Tax Assessors web site and look up the tax bill. Under "Direct Levy" you'll see any Mello Roos, or other bonds and assessments on the property. Hope that helps. ... more

What do you think of flipped homes vs regular sales in a neighbourhood?
I think a buyer needs to consider the older non renovated homes as long as they are OK with the outside structure and the layout of the house is pleasant and usable. or a buyer to renovate is much cheaper than buying flipped homes if the buyer has the time to deal with it and the extra resources outside the loan to do the renovations. Flips are great sometimes,but some flippers do superficial renovations that do not look uniform yet they ask for a very high margin. I wish there is a standard for the quality of flips. ... more

Rita answered:
The Folsom city as a whole was not as badly affected by the recession and did not take as much of a beating as compared to the other markets.

If in 3-4 years you decide to sell , you can always also rent it out if you do not see as much appreciation. But real property has always appreciating in the long run. Rental market is also very hot in Folsom.

You can also consider an older homes as they are relatively better priced than the newer homes. The return on investment could be better. But again you need to sit down and discuss all your options,

It is very important to recognize these buyers and respond with low sales pressure. This is still someone who wants to buy a home. These buyers must be given information without sales pressure. ESPECIALLY if they are Generation Y. I specialize in first time home buyers and have several INFORMATIONAL systems in place to answer all of their questions in the "just looking" or educational phase. The business from this person is earned with trust, they will let you know when they are ready, just be sure to help them along the way and give them the information they want when they want it. ... more

Gregorio Denny answered:
The #1 quality should be the ability to close loans at disclosed and agreed upon terms to their borrowers. However, agents cannot determine that because they use a limited set of loan officers for most situations and rarely stray to find new, better ones. Agents often dissuade clients from using perfectly capable loan officers that offer better terms in favor of their "known" sources that don't have the same pricing options.

The #1 quality is actually 3 of them.
Reliability, affordability and availability.
