Jason Berardino answered:
If a house is under deposit continue to show that means there is a current contract in place on the house and the buyer is most likely doing their inspections and obtaining their financing.
While they are doing these the listing agent can continue to show the house in order to find a back up buyer if the first one falls through.
However most agents don't want to bother doing this because the likelihood of that happening is fairly low.
By putting it on continue to show status instead for straight deposit the listing still shows up active on most real estate websites and the listing agent can then generate buyer leads ion order to sell them other houses.
If your still looking for a house, I am local and would be happy to help.

Hello N Dimauro,
It's hard to predict what your house is worth next spring but you can get a market value now and guestimate the value in the spring will be within 10% of today's value. It's a very nice house. If you're interested, give me a call at 203-623-3923 and I can prepare a market analysis based on today's value. Regards, Wanda Palmer ... more

Dan and Ted bring up good points. I personally advise my clients that trying to time the market will more often than not make one look foolish. You need to decide on the overall picture and ask yourself does it make financial sense right now and if it does then you should act. The risk reward scenario is not in your favor. Everyone wants to buy low and sell high but that is just not possible someone has to be on the other side of the transaction so like I said before if you run the numbers and it makes sense then act and don't look back! I wish you well and please keep me in mind for any home financing needs you may have.

I suggest you sell he property. I have been a Realtor for over then years and being a landlord is not for everyone. Besides the worries that you will have about how the tenant is caring for your property, there isn't even a guarantee that the tenant will pay what was agreed upon. I have seen applicants that looked great on paper, with good credit history, sound employment and referrals turn out to be horrible. You never know what you are going to get. If problems occur and the payments stop, the time it takes and the stress of evicting the tenant is not fun. If you are close to breaking even on the sale, do it and save yourself from a possible terrible experience. You could wind up with a great tenant but it is a gamble. ... more

Thomas M. Madden answered:
I am late to the party and I am sure someone gave you my answer but here goes anyway. If you are thinking of selling your property and though the roof is not causing you any problems, most buyers hire home inspectors to review the house prior to closing. There is a good chance the inspector will advise the buyer that the roof is in the last years of it's expected life and it will need replacing sometime soon. The buyer will request that it be replaced or they will request a credit at closing. This probably will occur even if the agreed upon price is a good value. In this market, buyers are expecting a turn-key home in newer condition so I suggest that you replace the roof now so that when you place it on the market, you have stronger offers and a less stressful transaction. ... more

Condider working with an agent of your own, and place your offer; however before doing so, review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests as to a fair offer. If purchasing with a mortgage, be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

Robert Spinosa answered:

There may or may not be real costs involved and you should speak with the person who locked your rate to be sure.

And after doing that but before walking, imagine a scenario where the lender with whom you eventually lock decides one day that because rates have gone up, he's going to bail on your lock. If you don't quite like the sound of that, maybe you view your current arrangement with a new sense of commitment and value.

Good luck with your decision.
