Ann Ryan answered:
Marian, with few exceptions, banks now widely market the homes they own. The reason is simple they want to get as much money as possible for the property.

So the question really is why haven't they put the home up for sale. It usually means one of two things. First, there's still a legal battle over who owns the home. Second, there are serious problems with the condition of the property, and they are planning on doing some renovation to increase the number of potential buyers.

A local real estate agent can provide you a list of foreclosures that are actually for SALE. Sooner or later, this home will likely show up on that list. When it does, put in an offer!

Seller pays transfer fees and they are different in each area. Check with your local offices for that rate. As an example, my residential area is $4/$1000 sales price.

I have never heard of registration fees. ... more

Rent to Own houses are few and far between as you may already know. My family lived in Dansville for 23 years. If you have children, the school system isn't good. I say this as some one who raised 3 children there and one had special needs( 1985-2008). Norman Howard school off Calkins Rd. in the city of Rochester is excellent for them. Another child was an A student who quit due to boredom! There is no program for children that excel. Also, because there is little for kids to do there, the drugs are prevelant. Wish I knew now, what I didn"t know then!! As anywhere else, there is good and bad everywhere. The area is beautiful, especially in the summer months. Good luck and God Bless ... more

Lisa Brodsky answered:

The first thing I would recommend for you is to get yourself a buyers agent to represent you and help you look for what you hope to find in a home. You will need to be pre-qualified for a mortgage so that the agent can show you things in your price range. Please drop me a note. I am part of my companies relocation team and I can easily connect you with an agent that is a top agent, trained and certified to help you. This is a free service to you, so let me help you in this way. I hope to hear from you. If not, the best of luck! I am originally from Rochester, so I know the area you are considering, but I am too far away now to help you myself.

Mike Hart answered:
Yes, better testing would have helped. Sodium shows up as NA+ in water which is included in more extensive lab analysis like the one I use.

A Reverse-Osmosis filter system will remove it for drinking water, but does not have the capacity for the whole house. I am not certain, but a whole house water softener system may remove sodium. Call your "Culligan Man". It should be resolvable. ... more

What does the National Hazard Disclosure report say?

It doesn't matter what the seller says, the NHD is the first report that the buyer's agent should receive. (Assuming that things work in New York the way they do in California). ... more
