Kateluey answered:
USDA eligible properties can be located by first checking out the rural areas marked in the USDA loan map. The rural loan map clearly marks the boundaries of the areas eligible for USDA financing. With almost 97% of the county's land mass being USDA eligible, you are bound to find a suitable residential property in a rural area near you.

If all owners agree to the price and terms, the sale "works" like any other. With multiple parties involved, I recommend using an agent to do your bidding.

They've drained the lake and it looks like a giant mudpie. How can I put my home for sale under these circumstances. The home is beautiful and on the lake overlooking this mess.

We have had an abundance of rain, and flooding. There are homes here in Gatewood that have been on the market for 100 days or more. Are market values going to go up in the coming months?

That is a tough one, your best avenue may be some form of owner financing. There used to be more options prior to 2008 manufactured home loans are very hard to get at best and a single wide is even more difficult at any interest rate. If you have already located the home on the land you want let your "fingers do the walking" call around or surf the web and ask the question.

Best regards,

Greenwood is a fairly small town and finding the right property for a "frat house" may not be able to be determined by just locating a particular area, it may best be located by finding an agent who will work diligently with you to locate the right property when it comes on the market if it is not already on the market. You may find a property on the internet that works for you but without knowing if it is going to pass zoning guidelines it is not the right property. Or you may locate an area that is zoned for your purpose but no properties fit the needs. When you are looking in a large city there may be hundreds of opportunities but in a smaller town with much less inventory and even less inventory that fits specific criteria. Your best option is as I pointed out earlier in my answer, a Realtor who will be diligent in helping you snag the right real estate that fits the need, the location and zoning. It may take awhile but the right agent will not give up on finding the real estate to fit your needs if you don't give up.

Best regards,

Sally Morris

Sally Morris answered:
Glenn pricing a home involves more than just price per sq. ft. you have to compare apples to apples. location,what amenities, number of bedrooms, baths, lot size, upgrades the home has and what buyers have ultimately paid for homes comparable to the home that is being valued. The process of an appraisal takes an expert who is valuing an individual property and comparing it to other individual properties in similar locations, sq.ft. lot size, upgrades and how these upgrades translate into value added to the property. There is little to no accuracy in a website valuation of homes in a whole town.
