Yes, and I have a Bugatti and private jet that I don't want too.
I'll leave them by the curb with the keys in them, just swing by and pick them up anytime.

Joel, take a weekend trip down to the beach and check it out and maybe meet a few of the local agents to get their opinions. Look up some recent sales that have closed near the property and those listing agents may be familiar with the home.

Good luck

Dear T,
Prices ARE rising and there is a very hot buyer market out there. I believe you would do better if you work directly with a Professional Realtor on a CMA on your property. We do expect a very busy Spring and Summer Selling season this year. ... more

They are not priced by square foot.
But...would you pay $100 per foot if the next door neighbor just sold for $50 per foot?
The price per foot thing is just a guideline.

The easiest and cheapest way to increase value is - de-cluttering and cleaning EVERYTHING - closets, garages, cabinets, front door...everything. You can increase the value of your home by $2,000 - simply by cleaning and de-cluttering ( de-cluttering is getting rid of all the extra papers, furniture, pictures, and stuff that fills a room up). You can increase the value and get it sold faster, so it's a great deal.

Brian Goldberg answered:
By definition, you only own the unit you are selling, the land and common areas are owned jointly by all of the owners in the complex. The "rent" you are paying are the costs for the common area expenses divided amongst all of the owners, you are not "renting" anything. Your agent should have explained that to you. Check the By-Laws and CC&R's of your Homeowner's Association, and feel free to contact me for more information. ... more

These folks here are Realtors, not attorneys. Your question will have to be directed to an attorney. Especially since there is no "one size fits all" answer to your specific situation. The attorney will want your full story, and she / he will need to see the documents in question.

If you are the transferee, and you have an owners title of policy, your title insurer may be able to advise you, If you don't like the title insurance company answer, you don't have to stop there, but you should probably start with the title company.

I will venture out far enough to opine that a "transfer of title" does not necessarily extinguish all debts and liens against a property;, a good title policy should reduce many of those risks.
