Madison Ave cottages are in a great location. Just a few blocks from pretty much Everything Bainbridge has to offer. Waterfront parks, Library, High School, Aquatic Center, Medical/ Dental, Groceries, Restaurants, Shopping, Performing arts, Galleries, Gyms, Ferry,,... you name it. Pretty much in the heart of downtown without being On the main commercial strip. There are a number of different cottages and homes/ townhomes in this vicinity so prices are great for buying and choices give options of maintenance included in HOA fees or not. Garden space or not, garage or not etc.
I'd say it's one of the best locations to enjoy Winslow and not even need a car.
Love it!

Under most conditions, once your past the inspection phase the only escape hatch the buyer has is financing, assuming you make a good faith attempt to obtain it. The fact that mold has now been detected may be a reason for USDA to decline your loan, but before you panic; please do more research about mold. Mold exists in countless forms and not all are hazardous.
I'm not saying you shouldn't get out of the deal, but "mold" has become a very hyped issue that can be remediated in many circumstances. I'm just encouraging you to make a well informed decision while you have the most options available to you. If you have any doubt, get an attorney to review your contract and advise you.
Best of luck.

Hi Randi,

If your listing is being fed to Trulia in a feed, you will need to make a change to the listing at the feed source (MLS, broker website, agent website) and the information will be refreshed on Trulia once it re-syndicates.

Alternatively, if you have submitted your listing on Trulia, you need to go to your Listings page and click on the link next to the listing to refresh/resubmit the listing. If the listing has been expired for an extended period of time, you may need to reenter the data.

Robin ,
I am attempting to provide some other alternatives that involve financing.
One of our greatest unsolved problems relates to foreclosure. I might not be on direct topic but I thought that appealing to people in this industry it may be useful suggestion to improve on this ourselves.
I am mostly involved with sales as a buyer's agent though I have a mortgage license that I only use to further educate myself in providing a more professional service to my clients.
With so many changes regarding finance I thought of suggesting mine.

At the risk of "horning in" as an outsider.....
1. In almost any market the best values never last on the market more than a month. Period. I 've been monitoring MLS statistics for years and the values do not change
2. Homes that sell in the first 30 days sell closest to asking price. In MY MLS that means 100.3% of asking, at 120 Days On Market (DOM) that means 96.4% of asking.
3. What does it take to sell a home - showings by Realtors. We know that 90% of the time the buyer that purchases your home will be represented by a Realtor. So if you do not have 10-12 showings or ONE offer in two weeks, a price adjustment is in order.

Good luck!
