Hi Sal + Arlyn

great article about Elmwood Park in this week.

We have the same Mayor for 41 years. I like living in town and not having to deal with politics. no parking restrictions. access to many highways, trains and buses. mostly 1 and 2 family homes. More owners than renters in the town.

I'd be happy to help you find a home for your family.

I'd be happy to show you comparable sales.

The selling bank will do a BPO or an appraisal so it is best to have an educated offer.

So you don't waist your time.

Every bank is different some may sell for %20 less some want full market value.

Condition of the home will play a big part in price.

let me know if I can help

I am not familiar with that figure or calculation at all. Whole sale price was calculated in one seminar I took at 70% of the trending sales price. I do not compare current listing prices at all since they are not realistic due to the fact that property has not sold yet. But rarely do we as Realtors use these factors, prices and offers are usually determined by the property history, condition, location and the urgency to sell. ... more

The Certificate of Re-Occupancy was issued, which basically tells you that the house is "up-to-code" and that there was no outstanding permits against the house at the time of the sale. So with that being said; I can't understand as to why the town would come back to you 6 months later?

If you want, please feel free to call me to further discuss this. It could just be a clerical mistake or someone over looked it. Anyway feel free to give me a call.

Our Green Valley, Arizona Active Adult Communities require at least one person to be 55 years old, but no one under 18 can live in the community. People of any age are permitted to visit for up to 2 weeks at a time. In Quail Creek (and possibly a few other subdivisons) one person can be under 55 if they are building a new home rather than purchasing a resale. The builder is only allowed a certain percentage of homes to be sold under this exception.

It's always best to check with the builder and/or community before writing an offer.

Keleigh15e, on the average it's about $6000 in Elmwood Park and about $7000 in Fair Lawn. Sometimes, if the the property is on a bigger lot or in an "exclusive" area (such as Radburn in Fair Lawn) taxes can go up to 8 to 9 thousand; but that is not typical. ... more
