YES! You need an advocate for you. Your Realtor friend is representing her buyer, not you. So, you deserve representation. Your listing agent can negotiate for you and get you top dollar for your home. Always choose a Realtor when trying to buy or sell a home.... more
The first thing you should do is call the company of that agent and ask to speak to his/her broker in charge. So many issues can be resolved satisfactorily that way. If your Realtor IS the company, than typically going to the local or state real estate commission. Just make sure you have your facts straight and in writing ready to go.... more
That can be a complicated answer on how to determine how that value is reached. Sometimes with new construction they will use the sales price...with older homes it can be based upon a dollar per square foot of living space. Here in the Raleigh area, it amazes me sometimes when I look at property tax records and see the appraised amount for taxes. I actually was told in a class once that for a while, homes were simply driven by an a tax value placed on the home by a tax adjuster simply based upon how big/nice/whatever the home looked from the outside. Tax values at least here in NC are only recalculated every 8 years and then slid up or down by some scale based upon the economy. So that's the best naswer I can provide....nothing scientific about the process. The other thing ....once assessed, they are typically open to adjusting it downward if you think it is high as long as you can provide proof such as comps from surrounding homes of like size....again a thing here.... more
It is a good idea. But, there are several things you need to know. For one example, some Condo associations no longer allow investors to buy properties in their association. You have to be sure where you are looking will allow you to buy then lease that property. If you want, you can call me and I can give you all of the details.

Kristen, congratulations on the offer. It may be a little difficult to part with the 3% in this transaction, so maybe you can negotiate with the buyers on covering the fee for the agent. Please understand the agent has worked on the buyers behalf and it is customary for the agent to be paid for his/her services. To sell a product, whether a home or anything else, for this amount of money without having to pay a sales fee, is not very typical. I would be happy to provide some advice if needed. The help of a professional real estate agent can go a long way. Good luck with your decision.... more
This is a difficult question as there are many variables to consider when making this decision. A few things to think about are:
what is your price range
how much money are you putting down
how long do you intend to stay there
what types of amenities are important to you
Mason is a great place to live, and a condo can be a great investment. Because of the local market, Mason is one of the areas, least impacted by the economic downturn in the last 5-7 years. This is a wonderful place to live and a great place to own property in, even if it is a condo or single family home. It's always nice to have options. Make sure you have an agent who understands the implications of your purchase decision, who will best represent your interests in the purchase.... more
