If the infestation doesn't come back, I don't see that it matters (just me, just sayin').

Consider this: Doctors often treat bacterial infections with antibiotics without knowing the "specific" bacteria causing the infection. What leads them is location and symptoms. If you don't get well in the prescribed period of time, what do you do? You go back, so they can "try" again. If you get well, it doesn't matter what you "had," because it's gone!

I hope you remain infestation free!

Simple cosmetic repairs are always a good idea! Consider inviting a few local agents and ask opinions.

Two very different things. If you want your correct property info to show up on Trulia, you'll have to list it with a REALTOR.

Don Tepper answered:
3%-4% of the home's value.

It's impossible to quantify--unless you could have comps--similar houses, one with good landscaping, one without. But, just thinking about houses in my area, I'd expect a differential of 3%-4%.

On top of that, the one with better landscaping is likely to sell faster. Some folks will be so turned off by poor curb appeal that they won't even venture into the home. Or, as HomeBuyer suggests, poor curb appeal is likely to suggest that there are other things wrong with the home.

And that's likely the case. Real estate investors often "Drive for Dollars"--driving around neighborhoods looking for properties whose owners are in distress. One of the obvious signals is a poorly maintained lawn and bushes.

Hope that helps.

I would definitely recommend consulting professional help when dealing with mold. Not only can it be hazardous to the health of individuals in the home but can become a problem when trying to sell or rent out in the future. I recommend calling three different companies and getting estimates and talking with the individuals they send out to see how much they tell you and how knowledgeable they are. I ALWAYS base my decisions not just on recommendations but the person who took the time to explain to me not just the cost of something but how it will work, how the cost applies to each step and what I can do in the future to prohibit and even avoid the same problem again. ... more

There is only one home currently listed on Thornton Avenue (for $180,000 with 1378 square feet). In general the homes in English Terrace are in good condition and have been remodeled. I am a broker with EXIT Realty at the Cove and our primary service areas are Hampton Cove and South Huntsville. I would certainly appreciate the referral and glad to help get this home on the market. I do a great deal of internet and local advertising that helps ensure that my listings are promoted well to buyers both locally and relocating to our area from out of town.

Feel free to call or email me to talk about the next step.

W. Todd Hess answered:
And to add to the previous answers, with which I wholeheartedly agree, the local board prohibits use of those forms for use by anyone other than a paying and licensed board member.

If you receive a sample offer from an individual who came up with his or her own, make certain it abides by the laws of the state of Alabama. A contract that has wording which attempts to supersede local, state, and federal laws can get you in a WHOLE lot of trouble. Every state and municipality has different laws, so even a document created by an attorney in another state puts you at potential risk. ... more

I ran an estimated closing statement for $133,000. It came to just under $3,300. Most of these costs are negotiable and most are assoaciated with the loan costs. I can send you the estimate breakdown in an excel file if you'd like to see it.
