Sally Grenier answered:
Not sure what you're referring to, or what your question is? If your home is listed for sale, and the property is in both your names, you both need to go to closing and bring a photo ID. If she's paying you rent to live there currently, that is beside the point and has nothing to do with your transaction. ... more

You should contact a local Realtor or two and ask them for a comparative market analysis (CMA). They'll be able to look up recent sold properties in the MLS, as well as current "active" listings, under contract listings, and listings that haven't sold and were withdrawn. ... more

Not really. There is a difference between giving someone a phone number and telling them to do their own research and giving them access to the entire municiple code and referencing the chapter and article number they need. In the code, they actually have instructions and an application they can fill out.

Thorough asistance through each step of the process. It's one of the things that makes Independence Realty different!

Considering how tight the rental market is, you should be able to cash flow your investment even if you cant sell. I can provide you with a spreadsheet that forecasts cash on cash returns and equity buildup over a range of time. You should make your decision based on whether your investment makes since whether you see appreciation or not. Over time real estate has historically risen in value if you can wait. Small, mountain tourist towns are a great place to invest, because they contain moderately priced, single family homes in owner occupied neighborhoods. Email me at Andrew@buyeadville.com. ... more

Engage an honest, transparent real estate agent to set you up with online access to EVERY home listed on the MLS. A great agent will even approach FSBO sellers and get information for you, even if they make a smaller commission. Whichever agent you choose, their fee should be paid by the seller! ... more

Hi Heather, A 2+ bedroom home on 10+ acres of land within 15 miles would start about $250k. Of course, it depends on the type of construction and home finishes. I will send you what is available that matches your criteria on Friday.

By the way, I have been a realtor for 13 years, with all kinds of advanced certificates and awards. I have been in Salida for about 11 years.

I looking forward to helping.

Paula Bradfield answered:
Charleen, great question. Land around here can go for as little as $1500 per acre to as much as $15000 per acre, depending on where it is and what it has on it. It your land is on the river, values go way up. If it has any geothermal possibilities, same thing. Year round access, great tree cover, water rights, and elevation also come into play. the purged mobile will not add much value but if you have electric, septic and a well in, that changes things. Why don't you give me a call and I can get out to the land to put a value on it for you ok?

Todd Spiller answered:
Okay okay, sorry for the flip answer. (Broncos were loosing ugly at the time). I do see many agents though walking a thin line on this blog by offering speculative opinions. In the interest of being constructive there are several things for a Seller to consider including the long term impacts on credit, potential for deficiency judgement and obligations to other creditors. The Seller then would be wise to obtain the answers to these from qualified experts and to identify other pitfalls and/or advantages such as a financial incentive from the lender, prior to taking this course of action.

Thanks Paula for offering more information and clarification on your situation.

As an aside, it might be a good idea for lenders to set up a property management division and put 'under water' properties into a pool for rent (no pun intended). If the current borrower can rent, give them an opportunity to lease and option to purchase at market or maybe cure the debt at a later date. Lenders could use local management companies for day to day leasing responsibilities.
