Sally Grenier answered:
Not sure what you mean exactly. Typically the contract has specific dates for things like inspection deadlines, loan approval, and closing. So you're saying you were supposed to close on Oct 15th and that never happened? What does your Realtor say??? What does your lender say?? Impossible for anyone here to know what's going on without being involved in your transaction. Call your agent asap. ... more

It's negotiable. Insist that the seller pay for the retest. If the don't like the idea, tell them you'll reimburse them at closing, once the house has passed inspection and you can close. Good luck!

You need an attorney to make sure you have legal guidance in going through the process of the sale. He will be reviewing the contract drawn by the seller's attorney. If you have any concern that you want to address from the Home inspection, the Buyer's attorney will include this to the rider of the contract. He will make sure that you are protected in every step of the process. At the closing table, he will explain all the necessary documents that you need to sign.

Bottom line, he is there to protect you!

Most of the property owners put their houses on the market on spring. Though a lot of activities happen from Spring to Fall, there's a lot of houses on the market to choose from. During winter, in as much as there is a scarcity of housing inventory on the market, a motivated seller will pick your house if your house is price right.

Call a realtor in your area and ask if you can get a CMA.

Arlene,


Thank you for providing some details regarding your upcoming condo purchase. To answer your question, yes, there are mortgage programs available for your scenario and this includes the 7/1 ARM. The benefit of the 7/1 ARM is that you lock yourself into a very low rate for those first seven years which saves you a tremendous amount of money. It's also a good choice since you don't plan to be in the condo for more than 7 years; it would work out perfectly.

It would be best for us to speak so we can discuss the condo purchase in greater detail and ensure qualification. We can then translate the condo purchase to an actual monthly cost so we can be certain that the payment's within a comfortable range.

I encourage you to contact me at your earliest convenience. I may be reached directly at (201) 957-6768 or via email, whichever is easiest. I look forward to helping!


Kind regards,

Neighborhoods are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider further researching the area of interest on your own, and take the time to revisit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached. If schools are a concern, consider a visit and speak to the superintendent, principal, teachers, etc., also see links below; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you...

Josie Rodrigues answered:
Rochelle
There may be instances instances where a home has unique qualities that may bring up the price however they should be distinct and of value to the property.

If you are thinking of pricing your home higher than others in the area consider how long do you want the property to sit rather than sell.

It comes down to what buyers are willing to pay for the property. Overpricing it too much may not have good results as the property will sit on the market.

I hope this helps.

It's always best to include in both but you should discuss this with your agent and get their stance on it.

Scott Godzyk answered:
One reason is that because you are selling yourself, the buyer agents know they will not only have to complete their buyer agnet tasks but alot of the tasks a listing agent would take care of which does not make the commission enticing having to do twice the work and stress. In your haste to save money you could have hired a leading listing agent for 1 to 2% more which would have mor ethan paid for itself in a quicker sale at the hioghest price possible given your market conditions. Discount brokers mean discount servies which equal doscount sales prices. ... more

Currently there are homes on the market from $49,999 to $4,500,000. Homes in the Lake Carmel area tend to be less expensive. Waterfront homes in Mahopac and in the Sedgewood Club tend to be more expensive as well as those that are more estate like properties with ample land and views.
