Karen Peyton answered:
Only the owner can sell the property. To that end, you first mission is to "literally" find the owner and ask them if they want to sell. Note: Until a property is foreclosed, it is NOT owned by a bank or mortgage entity.

Good luck!

I am a commercial real estate broker in Canandaigua. The building on Niagara street is very nice but you will have to know the cost of putting in water lines for your sink before you buy such a building. There are more salon spaces available here. Please email or call me. 7705781067 ... more

You have to be a Realtor to post listings on this site. If you are a 'For Sale By Owner' Trulia will not allow you to do it.

There are a number of factors involved in determining how much you qualify for. It would probably be a good idea to sit down with a local mortgage lender and have them evaluate your situation. ... more

I can't speak for your market and your agent. What I can do is explain how the process works when I meet and list a property.
* Discuss the comparable homes and pricing and suggest price with seller.
* Explain my marketing plan, open houses, agency (dual or not), future price reduction strategy
* Explain how the offered commission, terms, and type of listing will affect showings and contract
* Explain that appt. only, and will reduce showings
* Discuss anything negative which may affect a buyer's decision, pet odors, cigaret odors, cooking odors, visual objections, neighbors, power polls, noise factors, furniture placement, color choices, lighting, etc… And what could be done to mitigate
* Once the listing is signed and the seller understands what their roll is, what my roll is, and how other agents work then we set a weekly follow up call.
* Every two weeks a report is prepared for the seller on showing activity, other properties on the market, off the market, price reductions, interest rate changes, website hits, and feed back from showing agents.
* I call every agent for feed back from buyers and relay that to the seller.
* I call other agents who have listings and get their activity level on their listing.
* I call recent solds in the area and talk with their agent to see if they have any buyer leads they can introduce to the listing.

When you and your agent have effectively communicated there should be no frustration with each other. Your agent doesn't make the market only interpret it. So as the other agents suggested, Google your address, your agent, and then schedule a meeting to get feed back.

Your timing could not be more perfect. Well, actually, last year would have been better.
With the information you have shared, it is reasonably clear you need alternatives to building wealth.
Looking towards a real estate investment is the most practical and obvious solution at this time.
You would be well served to consult a financial planner to establish a long term plan that includes a real estate element.

Let me be honest with you, if your finances are so tight you can not save the money for a down payment, you may be setting yourself up or future disappointment.

Be aware, wealth building through real estate may require buying what you can afford, before you can buy what you have always dreamed.

Get real guidance from real people, you know, those you can call and meet.
Set up a strategy, and implement the plan.
You ARE on the right thought.

Best of success to you,

If you are buying the home with your boyfriend (including getting the mortgage) his income would be included. If you are not planning to get married shortly afterwards, have your lawyer do a buy sell agreement. This agreement decides in advance what will happen if one of you leaves or dies. ... more

William DeCook - Free CMA's answered:
Congradulations, I know this could be a very exciting moment !! First thing, my opinion is that I am honored to be in this profession. We are in a position to help people make their dreams come alive, I don't understand the rudest of some. But, you should also understand that at certain points of the transaction access is necessary to the property and arrangements should be made through the agents. Please put yourself on the sellers side, everyone builds a personal attachment to the homes, now for some unknown reason they must move they might feel their being invaded over-night. Respect for the stituation needs to be established up front between parties, good times for the buyers to show off their dream and good times for the seller to cry over the move. ... more

Hi Sarah, The property you are talking about appears to be a vacant lot. Sometimes a lot will be listed in the single family residential category because it is an approved building lot. It will show up when someone is searching for a home. I hope this helps. ... more

Aaron Lazenby answered:
Deniser, I am not sure I understand your question. According to the Rochester area MLS system, the address you mentioned is not listed. There is only one property on Ontario Street listed for sale in Canandaigua. If this home was for sale, it is possible that it has already been sold or is being sold by owner and is not on the MLS system. Since sale and transfer of property is public record, you would be able to check the county clerk's office to see who the current owner is and if a transfer of ownership has recently taken place. I hope this information is helpful. Best of luck! ... more
