I used to live next to a reservoir similar to this, and it really didn't cause a lot of pollution nor noise. There was a mild humming sound that it would make though. We got really used to that after a couple of weeks. It really depends on your personal preference though. ... more

Simon Campbell answered:
Much depends on how your purchase agreement was worded. Usually there are contingencies that allow the buyer a way out. These can include having the ability to get the loan or if after getting a home inspection the buyer finds out there are problems with the house. Talk to your real estate agent to see which would apply to you. ... more

In short "yes" -

Be prepared to endure...

Make sure you have an experienced agent that completely understands the practices and policies of the banking industry.

This is not generally for the "fainted heart"!

There are ways to win "short sales" - for sure.

Want an "almost" no fail method...

call me - the call is free!

What Christine below stated is accurate...however in New York realtors do not assist in the sale of just a mobile home unless it is accompanied with
Land....a mobile home only is known as chattel....also, I strong recommend that you hire an is not a. Unreasonable fee which could save you a lot of money in the future...I am sure the realtor can recommend one. Good luck and hope you enjoy your new home very soon. ... more

Good Luck!

Hi Drew; After a USDA loan is cleared to close by the lender's underwriter, it must be sent to USDA for them to approve it. This takes from 2-5 days. That is the only additional time this loan requires. "Standard turnaround time" is a loaded statement for any loan. Time to get executed contract, strength of loan, title issues, etc... all affect the elngth of the loan process.

The Hudson Valley is a great place, and you have to decide for yourself what area works best for you.
If you are a commuter, you will want to be near public transportation, or within minutes to major routes. Also, the lifestyle you desire, whether its skiing, boating, fishing, or just enjoying the
country life. You may want to search out the schools, shopping, and restaurants in the area. Here in
Orange County, there's something for everyone.

Hi, I like to help my clients make an eductaed offer based on the recent sales data. If you don't educate yourself and make a blind offer it can really taint the negotiation. If you make an educated offer you can back it up with the research you have done, otherwise it's obvious you took a shot in the dark.
