James Simon answered:
Parkcarew, I had that experience once. They reviewed the house and found that some of the doors weren't up to code. It was an older house so it needed some work. I was able to point out that the house was built before the regulation, so it had been "grandfathered" in and didn't need to be up to code. That was able to keep me from having to redo it.

Unfortunately there is no way to know for sure. At the end of the day only you can decide what this home is worth to you and how you would feel if you lost it to the other bidder.

Every coop has different requirements. Once you have spoken to a mortgage broker/banker you will know what you can afford. Some coops are strictly owner occupied- no co-signers- so that should be your 1st question when looking. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
Some noise seepage is understandable. However, there should be fire barriers between houses, and those should absorb much of the sound, especially if there's some insulation on both sides of the barrier. Certainly, you should not normally be able to hear conversations through walls. Anna's advice about getting a soundproofing expert is good. But make sure whoever you get knows current code requirements as well. It's possible that the barrier isn't even up to code. And that's a safety issue, not just a comfort one. ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
The tenant signed a legally binding contract called a lease/rental form. Not only are you entitled to keep the commission, they could be held liable for any losses incurred by the owner for their breach of the contract. Further, I don't know the law where you are, but here in New Jersey putting a stop payment order on the check could constitute fraud and the tenant could be held legally responsible for that as well and fined in a quasi-criminal court. Signing a legally binding contract is not something to be taken lightly. I speak not as a lawyer, or even a realtor, but as a landlord who has had to enforce such agreements in the past. ... more

Adam Krzesniak answered:

Hope you are doing well,

I'm very sorry to hear that, but unfortunately not all of real estate agents provide the same quality of service, as well as particular websites may not have the right feeding source which can be causing that as well.

If you are a BUYER - contact the real estate professional to receive the correct information
If you are a SELLER - contact your selling agent and ask her/him to make immediate corrections.

Thank You,
