Malden is a mildly unsafe city, even though it is nice and sunny as a picture. The only surrounding community that is still very safe is Stoneham. Safer parts of Malden are Forestdale, Oak Grove, and the West End. On average, the more north or west you are the better, yes closer to Stoneham. However, the Linden section is decent. Some parts of Melrose are also safe, except that I would avoid the parts near Melrose Square. ... more

I believe because it's a disclosure and not a contract there is no need for an expiration date. i.e. I am disclosing that I am a real estate agent and since that isnt going change it never expires ... more

I recommend that you search for realtors that service your area and reach out to them. Alternatively, you can google established real estate agencies , look on line at the bios and begin a dialogue with one. ... more

Tim Moore answered:
I can not think of any house I have sold that the buyer did not go see it before it actually closed (sold). All buyers go see them first. Is it listed with a Realtor? If so find a Realtor of your own and get them to show it to you and any other homes there. Just open the phone book and call a real estate company. Don't post your phone number for all to see. ... more

Andrew Chirapha answered:
There are many things you can do to increase your chances of having an offer accepted. Consideration amount comes to mind when placing an aggressive offer. However, offering a high dollar amount isn't the only way to increase your chances of a successful deal. Financing and Inspection contingencies may also help strengthen or weaken an offer. An all cash offer without an inspection contingency can very well be an attractive offer. Flexibility on closing date is also important to note. The sellers may want to move quickly and be willing to take a lower offer just because the buyers are willing to close within the next week. The bottom line is to try to find out what's important to the seller whether it's money, closing fast, or promising to water their plants everyday, then you will be able to increase your chances of closing the deal. ... more

Louis Wolfson answered:
please be aware the information provided by realtytrac is almost always not accurate. There are only two ways to buy a foreclosure.

1 At the foreclosure auction (don't suggest unless your a pro and understand all the risks and potential problems)

2 thru your local realtor / buyer agent. All lenders are mandated to put their foreclosed properties on the market thru a realtor, to assure an arms length transaction.

Also Im sorry to say your expectations of getting a home in Malden under 100k are unrealistic. Even to find a condo in that price range will be very very difficult.

Steve & Mary Wiley answered:
Frankly, if an attorney is involved in a real estate transaction, it is due to one or more of these scenarios:

1. By custom and locale, as an additional party to the transaction;

2. When there is no escrow agent or title insurance (abstract / deed opinion states).

3. When there is a FSBO transaction, and either buyer or seller does not understand the charges and/or limitations of services which an attorney is typically capable, trained, and willing to provide.

Most attorneys do fill-in-the-blank form work, market awareness (because they don't have that information), counseling, marketing, or lower cost problem solving (because they lack that experience and skill set).

4. When one of the parties or their agents have goofed or they want to renegotiate / void a deal, or problems which are beyond the skill set, experience, or licensure of a Realtor to handle.

I can made this slightly bold statement because I am also an attorney as well as a real estate broker.
