I don't know the builder but could possibly find out by contacting the Charleston County building permit office. I just wanted to let you know that CresCom Bank offers construction-permanent and renovation mortgage loans with one-time closings. I would appreciate the opportunity to provide more information as not many lenders offer this type financing. Good luck with your builder selection process (I can refer some very good builders if interested).

Good Morning Carolyn,

The property you inquired about is not for sale but, I work primarily as a buyers agent and am able to assist you in finding an ideal home matching your specific criteria.

I can set up an automatic MLS search which clients really like so they don't have to constantly enter search criteria into real estate websites. This will allow me to send you all the active properties to-date as discussed and will inform you of any price changes on listings you may have already seen, and properties back on the market.

If you would like to speak please send me your phone number and let me know a good day/time or call me at 843-754-2089 to speak about it.

1. Good the a reliable Bank and get pre approved

2. Interview several Buyer Agents if you can find one who is ONLY a Buyer Agent Better. You can deal with the Seller Agent which will make he or she a dual agent BUT this limits just how much he or she can REALLY represent you only, that agent can't. Not advisebale.

3. Will your fiance be involved with the purchase of this house ?

4. Is it feasible to sell his house at this time or better to rent. Being a Pure Buyer Agent if my
clients going to take a loss I suggest turning home into a rental til the sellers market comes back.

5. Being in Columbia find a good Property Manager with a Large Local Company. When the time
comes that property manager for sure has realtor in the group to list house for you!

6. Have your Realtor do comps to justify the price being asked and I just looked up the tax records
on that house and see some interesting information on home the present owne acquired the house
and that will help determine first offer.

7. In your offer have your agent ask for closing costs and a 1 year service contract such as AHS.

8. There is no magical solution to offers and accpeting an offer. It comes down too who wants to
buy it more that would be you or sell it more. Looked up tax records on that house and saw item
I would take into consideration when making initial offer. You can email me at Happy to share with you even if you pick another agent. Best of luck

Apparently there are construction defect issues to some degree or another with every building in the complex. It looks like it will take some time to get worked out. The management company handling the Mira Vista regime would have the most current information. Their office number is #843-762-0370 or email ... more
