Your area would have an average days on market figure. If the property was priced correctly, it should have activity in the Average Days on Market time-frame. Also, keep in mind that we are in the Winter market that is slower than the Spring and Summer markets.

Kind regards,

Most often the owner is not at the open house. Sometimes real buyers may criticize a house, but they are actually interested in making an offer, and this can be a friction point between the owner and potential buyers.

Kind regards,

I was curious about this also. From my understanding (please correct me if I'm wrong), a central sewer line was installed sometime after the construction of the homes in that area. Therefore, many of the homes have a septic tank system. The homeowner now has the opportunity to run a sewer line from their home to the main sewer line, at their expense (buyer assumes sewer bond). From the many stories I've heard about septic tank issues, it almost seems like a no brainer to convert the septic system to the sewer system. The only negatives to this are the upfront cost to empty, fill and seal the septic tank and the installation of the sewer line from your home to the central sewer line. ... more

A few months ago my husband and I sold our home in LA and it was a bit difficult getting the HOA documents needed for our buyer. A family friend referred us to They were a huge help in making sure we had all the right documents and the information met the state disclosure requirements. I was able to get the whole package together easily by the contract deadline. I don’t think the process could get much easier than the software and service provided by Association Online. You should visit their website or call (970)-226-1324. They’re a great help for homeowners nationwide. ... more

Robert Spinosa answered:
Several good answers below, but I just wanted to add that often you will pay an appraisal management company (AMC) for the appraisal, and not the lender. They will then insulate the buyer and lender from the appraiser and insure compliance with the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) and other appraisal regulations. It is not uncommon to pay an AMC a certain fee ($500, for example), and then see the appraisal report with a charge of $350 (for ex.). AMC's do have administrative overhead that you're also paying, but lenders are required to use them if they wish to have loans that are compliant with industry guidelines.

Any questions, just let me know.

As indicate below, a chandelier would be considered a fixture and the seller would need to exclude it. We routinely add language that states all appliances included in our contracts and your agent could add some regarding the chandelier just to make everything clear but it's unnecessary. ... more
