Good evening,

Good question! HOA dues can vary even among the Powell homes. They are typically higher than non-Powell homes in Gold River but also include more maintenance. As a general rule of thumb, they range between $300-$450/mo. Depending on the village, those dues will include things such front yard landscaping, roof repair, exterior paint, street maintenance etc. If you would like to know HOA dues for a specific property, please give me a call- I'd be happy to help.

This home is a short sale sale that currently has an offer on it already. That doesn't necessarily mean you can't put in a backup offer. There are other similar homes in Gold River for sale. Call me and we can sit down and discuss the process of buying a home, today's market conditions, and how I treat my clients top notch.

Thanks!

Nancy, I'd like to suggest a few things to hopefully get you your best results- which I believe is to see this home and possibly buy this, or another home for your family.

First, for safety reasons, as well as your sanity, remove your phone number from this public website. I expect you received multiple offers from realtors who are willing to jump to show you a house. (your voicemail is probably full)
Second, review qualifications of a buyer's agent that you might like to work with. There are many articles here on Trulia and other sources that can help you define what you would look for and don't rule out that a personality fit is important. This agent should be interviewing you as well to determine if you can work well together. They become your consultant and should be your best resource to meet your objectives. And the first task, after understanding your objectives, is to determine your qualification for a loan, possibly having you meet with a lender to get prequalified so that you can make an offer on a home you select.

If all you want is someone to open the door because you're curious about the home, you can call the listing agent who's phone number is on the sign. If you want a buyer's agent (representing YOU not the seller) then many can line up to show you the property. But I suggest that this may not be the best avenue to find the realtor to represent you best. Good luck in your search Nancy!

You should make sure you have everything in writing and also due diligence before signing or giving any money upfront. Is this commercial property? Why 10k spent on what?

My personal experience with realty trac, where this property is listed according to your link, is to generate interest so that you call one of their agents. This is a roundabout way to find a property to meet your needs.

This is not a home that has yet been foreclosed upon. It could be listed as a short sale currently and available for negotiation. It could be going to foreclosure and you can contact the bank to understand your interest and be 'first in line' when they put it up for sale after the foreclosure takes place. But have you seen the condition of the home? Do you know the value of the neighborhood in today's market? As the others have said, you need to gather all of this information and a good realtor is your best resource to help you make an informed decision, and even as important, to negotiate the best price and terms on the property that meets your needs.

Make sure and select one that's actively working in this market, because the 'game has changed' from a year ago. Having an experienced realtor will help you tremendously.

Good luck!
