That is what AS IS means. In these cases i have my buyers inspect major things before we make an offer. The however, is that if you already signed a contract and find something, you can ask them to fix or credit you, they can say no, but could say yes. This is where a good buyer agent comes in handy to guide you ... more

That varies depending upon what you'd like to add on your second storey. Are you adding more bedrooms and bathrooms or is it going to be just a game room? What upgrades are you putting in? Carpet vs hardwood floors? What type of stairs and railings? I would suggest that you obtain a bid or two and go from there. ... more

It seems to be a mixed bag in the Metro-west Boston area. I know some sellers that have been able to get the leased panels transferred over to the new buyers and some sellers that have had to buy them out and were unable to transfer them. As of 2016 Fannie May says leased panels CANNOT be included in the appraised value of the property. Buyers must qualify with the lease amount added to their debt to income ratio and there are other requirements. There are other requirements to transfer as well. If I were a seller I would not be getting into a solar lease if I knew I was going to sell in the next few years. ... more

There really is no way to get close to a number per square foot with out seeing the home, understanding what needs to be done, etc. Building costs for homes can range anywhere from $60-$200+ per square foot depending on many, many things. If you were to build a very simple, slab on grade, with minimum code requirements, I'm confident you could come in at the lower end of the spectrum.

Mark Wilson answered:
The best way to find out the going real estate commission rate is to put the Realtor fees on the open market and let the Agents bid your commission rate. Commission fees are negotiable and can vary by zip code. We find the best way to compare commission fees is to reverse-auction them. That is why we created; a free service for Sellers who can invite agents to submit their marketing plan and commission structure. It is a patent pending process that is saving Sellers thousands.

It is completely free to the Seller and there is no obligation for the Seller to pick the lowest bid or any bid. The whole time the Seller remains anonymous as we never publish your street address or contact information. Sellers can sit back and review marketing plans, commission bids, ratings and reviews. A big win for the Seller. After all, Agents are not charged to register or bid and they have no obligation to bid. Give it a try:

Hi Ram,

It is important to stay in the same school district if you like it, so the children can make friends for a lifetime.

All the best,

Hi Alex:

Thanks for the question.

Here are a few trends that maybe of interest to you:


Cambrian is quite centrally located, and one get on to 85 and go to Cupertino and
Palo Alto area or 880/17 to go to Santa Clara. The schools are terrific and the values are
a half to 1/3 rd less compared to Los Gatos, Saratoga or Cupertino.

Let us know if we can help.

Best regards

Hi Beeya:

Thanks for your question since, 2010.

I hope you did not go ahead with it then, as the market corrected and being
on a busy street it would have been a tough ride.

I personally would have bought a condo or a TH than being on a busy road
with the same good schools.

Let us know how you did make out.

Best regards
Ruth and Perry

Anytime you add to the original floor plan could be quite costly, if that is your concern. It isn't the same as modifying the original plan.

Real estate commissions are always negotiable. Industry standard is 3% for listing and selling each. Talk to your realtor prior to engaging in their professional services.
