Julie Jones answered:
Mary, you could currently purchase a home already built in the Bald Eagle Subdivision for less than building a new home.

The price to build a new home would have so many varialbles, cost of the lot, upgrades you put into a home, etc.

So, a more solid way of asking this question would be.....what do you qualify for and then you put $160K down, would the houses already on the market meet my needs?

Taxes would be different, specials would be different, 5024 Bramblewood is a new home without an established yard.

Is location you're more vocused on or price?

Send me a reply if you'd like more answers.

Thanks for your responses but I need to clarify that we are the Home sellers. We have done many high end upgrades including an additional Full bath/FEMA Storm room. We purchased property at $164,000 4 yrs ago and have done close to $30K in updates, we are already taking a loss at our asking price of $179,900 but are willing to still pay 2% to a buyer's agent, but this is the reason why that 2% is the best we can do. We are having an OPEN HOUSE this weeked as advertised on the Mercury, from 2-6pm and we welcome ALL BUYER's agents. ... more

Adam Bonewitz answered:
It is still currently for sale, though it is under contract. The current buyers that have a contract on this home have a contingency that they must sell their home first. This being said, if you do NOT have a contingency like that, an offer could be placed on the home- and I would be more than happy to help you! Please don't hesitate to contact me- 785/341-7976 or ... more

It is absolutely possible! I am currently working with a client that has a VA loan on 2 homes, and is buying a 3rd with a VA loan. There are a couple lenders in town that are very knowledgeable regarding VA loans, and I would love the opportunity to get you in contact with them.

Daren Lee Lewis answered:
The buyer under the current contract may have made a contingent offer with a kickout option, providing the seller a short while to receive a back-up offer. Another scenario where this may be happen is in a development consisting of essentially identical units, as in duplexes or town-homes, and the existing unsold units may not be finished enough to show. The only other reason would be if the home went under contract and the advertising for the open house had already been submitted and the Realtor feels obligated to proceed with it regardless. ... more

In Kansas Real Estate contracts have to be in writing. I never count it a deal until it is written and fully executed, even then depending on the contract contingencies don't count on it as a done deal. ... more

Thanks for your question. I am a local realtor in Manhattan. The only answer I have for you is that different systems are better for different area's depending on where they market and focus their activities. While Trulia may be HUGE in Chicago or Seattle it may be light in places like Manhattan. I have a couple of tips for you;

1.) Try This site is endorsed by the Association of realtors and is fed directly by local MLS feeds. This means that as far as the National property search engines it will have the most current and complete data.

2.) The best way to get the MOST current information is to connect with a local realtor and have them send you email updates of the newest listings. Of course there is always the risk that they will bug you incessantly once they have your contact info lol. Please feel free to send me a description of what you are looking for. My privacy policy is NO SPAM, NO KIDDING.

Best of luck in your home search.
