In the last 3-4 years, the Danville market has been improving year after year. If your home is priced right, it will certainly sell, and we are seeing multiple offers more often when the home is priced right. The average days on the market for a home in Danville School District is 92 days (sold between 1/1/2014 through 3/26/2014, Central Susquehanna Valley Board of Realtors). This will vary in each price range, though. Hope this helps! Tiffany Price 570-573-4989 ... more

Trulia does not show properties that are For Sale By Owner. Your property has to be listed in the MLS for it to show up here.

Over priced homes can stay on the market for a long long time and may never sell. Grossly under priced homes can sell in a day.

I would suggest if you were forthright in what you are saying as a team then you would not be frightened at all by such activity. It sounds like your team may have some growing up to do. Almost every home you go into has activity , but it is how you deal with it that makes such activity welcome. ... more

I personally wouldn't want to keep them separate. So many of your referrals will come from your inner circle of family and friends very much like Zan Monroe's Ninja Selling. But it is truly a personal decision and one we each must make for our own businesses. Best ... more

First of all the relief would apply if you are a first time home buyer.
Here are six things you need to know about the Economic Stimulus package which includes the much discussed - $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit.

1. Eight grand, new first-time home buyers: The tax credit included in the economic stimulus legislation is much narrower than the original proposed amount. This credit is equivalent to 10 percent of the purchase price of the home--although it's capped at $8,000--and applies only to first-time home buyers and principal residences. It does not have to be repaid.

2. First time buyers defined: For the purpose of legislation, a "first-time home buyer" is someone who hasn't owned a principal residence for three years before purchasing a house. (The date of purchase is considered the day that title is transferred.) If you have owned a vacation home--but not a principal residence--within the past three years, you would still qualify for the credit. You would have to prove where your principal residence has been during that time.

3. 2009 buyers only: Only those who purchase a home on or after January 1 and before December 1, 2009 are eligible for the credit.

4. Income limits: The tax credit is subject to income limitations. Single buyers need a modified adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less to qualify for the full credit, that's $150,000 for married couples. Those earning more than these thresholds may be eligible for reduced credits.

5. Refundable: Because the tax credit is "refundable," qualified buyers can take advantage of it even if they don't have much tax liability.

6. Recapture: Buyers have to own the home for at least three years in order to capitalize on the credit. If they sell the home before then, they will have to return the credit to the government. (Exceptions will be made in certain cases, such as death or divorce.)

Bonnie Trump answered:
I can speak somewhat to properties in Pa. only. A deed can be transfered to a parent/child/grandchild for a $1.00 transfer fee and the deed preparation fee conveying ownership from Seller to Buyer (in our area about $150) ... that part is simple. The mortgage would have to be satisfied and/or assumed by you (if the Lender allows) before a clear title can be conveyed.

I would speak to whomever holds the mortgage and see if they will work with you on the $8000 balance.
You could also pay it off and then transfer title or work some loan arrangement (personal or secured) with the lender. Always best to speak with an attorney about any tax implications for you ... or your mother.

Good luck.

Vlad. My advice is to proceed with caution. If you are moving into an area that is totally new to you, contact a realtor in that area that will provide you with critical information and may also represent you as a buyer's agent even though this is a FSBO. I assume that you have already viewed the property, that it has been inspected by a qualified inspector, that you know what you're getting into, that is has been appraised and that you have an attorney representing your interests at the other end (where you plan to buy)? Dealing with a FSO directly is difficult enough but dealing with a FBSO without assistance is asking for trouble. Get some expertise on your side! Good luck. ... more
