Karen Peyton answered:
You and Dad should speak with an attorney and tax consultant.
Speak with an attorney, to get to the bottom of what you're trying to accomplish and the easiest way possible.
And speak with a tax consultant to estimate the extent of taxation if in fact a taxable event will occur (which is the reason to start with the attorney).

Good luck!

Call Robert Procter at Axley Brynelson Law Office. You need an attorney, not a Realtor at this time. Good Luck, Eric

Judy Kalscheur answered:
Sure as long as the floor plan still makes sense and flows. If the room has a closet, like a bedroom would, it may be a little odd calling it a dining room. Also consider whether you are better off calling it a bedroom, depending on the number of bedrooms the house has, it may be better to have an additional bedroom vs. a dining room. ... more

Michelle Yoo answered:
For any other prospective buyers who are perusing this thread, Kathleen is correct, that if you're working with a Realtor to find a home that it should be free. I'm not sure about other agents, but I will set up a search for any possible buyer without them needing to sign a contract or be obligated to me in any way. Hopefully, this reduces the stress of looking for a new home. ... more

Michelle Yoo answered:
Old thread, but still a relevant question for future homeowners. All answers are spot on. The one thing that hasn't been pointed out is that each has their own level of tolerance. If you're already starting out thinking that the noise/traffic/activity is even a little bit annoying, think about how you would feel five years down the line.
But if you're the type that loves the hustle and bustle of a neighborhood or central activity area, living across from a high school would most likely be fine.
Bottom line, try to predict how you feel about a place a few years into the future.

Mr. Gulati,
Please let me know if a few months has changed your outlook on a home. The Dane County area has varying rules about the lengths of renting, etc. If you're in the mood to "just look" for a possible home, let me know. I offer a free, no obligation MLS search engine that will send properties you'd be interested in directly to your email. Just let me know.

Your best bet is to "Flag" the listing as being a scam. Nobody here has control over who posts what. There are many scammers out there, and they are here on Trulia as well. Not much Trulia can do about it. I just takes users like us to spot the fake listings and flag them for removal. ... more

Michelle Ames answered:
Are you looking at a specific property in the Madison area? If so, the property management company knows the fees; I may be able to help you figure out who to call (my office number is 608-535-9633). If not for a specific property, then condo fees vary community to community and often unit to unit, usually based on square footage. In part, it is impacted by the services the association covers, the age and condition of the condominium community and how successfully the association has managed its reserve. On top of the monthly condominium fee, there may be special assessments for large repairs or maintenance (roofing, painting, parking and driveway maintenance, etc.). The seller may know if a special assessment is coming up, and this should be in the III. Condominium Assessments, Fees and Charges section of the Condominium Addendum to Real Estate Condition Report. ... more

Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real state professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached. ... more

Best place to find rentals in Madison would be, but I imagine you will have a difficult time finding a home to rent in that area. Best of luck.

Katie answered:
This is an old thread so it's probably not even relevant anymore, but I feel like the question still needs to be answered appropriately. My parents home is one of the houses being sold on Enchanted Valley. I am familiar with their situation and the situations of most of the neighbors also selling their houses. The ATP power line has NOTHING to do with the fact that they and the others are moving, not even remotely. It has everything to do with life circumstance (as one of the posters already mentioned). My parents have lived in their home for 10 years, they don't want to leave. Sadly, work is taking them out of state. The area is stunning and so is my parents home, and the other homes for sale. ... more

Hi Craig,

The dues for Bishop's Bay average about $450 to $500 per month. The are based on the size of each particular condo. The community is gated and the grounds are managed by The Bruce Company. All in all the grounds are beautiful and very well maintained - to the point of the streets blown clear of leaves and clippings. I run in the neighborhood weekly and find it peaceful and safe with little to no traffic. A wide variety of families of all ages live in the neighborhood.

Please drop me an email if you have any further questions.
