Charles Bailey answered:
I believe it's priced well assuming it's in good condition. There are only 2 sales in that subdivision which were in 2009. This is common when you have a relatively new subdivision (5 years old). In 2009 a unit sold for 137K and another sold for 95K. ... more

It's basically a kind of second mortgage, except the money is paid out to the home owner in installments, and NEVER has to get paid back for as long as the homeowner lives in the home, which can be under the owner passes away.

For more information read my 5 part blog, including information about the new FHA reverse mortgage program -- link below. If you need such a reverse mortgage, contact me and I will use my connections to get you set up.

Marilyn Emery answered:
I don't know agency law in NC but in Maryland I think it is best to have a buyer broker. As Alessandra said the listing agent works for the seller and that is where their "loyalty" lies. Also a buyer broker can do alot of the leg work for you. They will know the market, what is priced fairly and may have knowledge of many of the properties as far as condition etc so you don't have to go look at everything, and you can use your house shopping time more effectively. ... more

James S. Mable answered:
I can only speak as an appraiser in Connecticut, but I have had several assignments similar to yours. The appraiser inspects the property today and tries to determine value as of a specific date in the past. They can research data from the Multiple Listing Service (most here in Connecticut if not online are archived in book format). Little more work involved for the appraiser so expect a somewhat higher fee. They will have to determine the condition at that time for comparable sales used as well as the subject property, market conditions, and can also research info from the cost approach etc.. Good Luck, Jim ... more
