Alan May answered:
You didn't "accept" the seller's counter. You put forth a new question... even if your agent had given your question in a more timely fashion... you hadn't sent an "acceptance".

In the meantime, an offer the seller was willing to accept came in.

I don't see anything either illegal, nor unethical in this practice. It's a shame that your agent didn't act more quickly.. did you ask him "why" he delayed?... but unless you were prepared (after hearing the answer to your question) to say "Okay... I'll take it".... and follow that up immediately in writing... you might still not have gotten the property.

You could write a back-up offer, just in case something goes wrong with the first offer. That's your recourse.

Land has still not fully recovered its market value since the crash. Most likely the price will still be low, but to truly determine what the market worth is, you will need to contact an agent to give you sold comparables. If I can assist you, please do not hesitate to ask.

This area of the county would generally only have ATT&T services for internet. My educated guess would be dial up. Most of us pay for satellite internet thru either Dish/Sky Tec (local reseller) or Directv. if I can be off more assistance please call me at Coldwell Banker High Country Realty 828-361-2423 or sandradaley@brmemc.net or 828-233-5562 which is my direct office number and rings all my #'s. ... more

The previous answer to your question about the builder for Sawyer,s Cove, Woodridge, The Meadows and Foxridge is not only inaccurate, it's deceptive. These are specific developments handled exclusively by my company, they are not areas. If you like further information about the specifics on the builder and the floor plans we offer please contact me at 828 837-2288 ... more

Cokie & Emmy Sothoron answered:
We did some research and compiled an information book about the area when we listed our Lake Apalachia home. The below site has great information & weather grafts for yearly averages in temps, precip, snow,humidity, sunshine - Lots of info
www.city-data.com/city/Murphy-North-Carolina.html‎
As for our home which is 23 miles south west of Murphy, we do not have to take any of our bulbs out of the ground for the winter. We have been told that our home is on/in a "thermal zone" and that there are many in NC. Amazing what grows here. And in the 6 years we have lived here we have had very little snow.

Our lake view and lake access home is for sale in Lake Apalachia Acres and we pitch in $150.00 for road maintenance each year. Lake Apalachia is the lake below the dam from Hiwassee Lake. We do not have the boat traffic nor the water fluctuation that the other lakes have. Nice to see beautiful blue water all winter and not to see orange mud during the winter when the levels are down in the other lakes. ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
Not sure exactly what you're asking, but it sounds as if you've made an offer and the Seller (Freddie Mac) has countered and given you a date to accept their offer.

You really should be working with an experienced buyer broker. You may not know it but buying foreclosures is extremely risky, their hardly ever the deal a buyer thinks they are. I've attached a link below to an article I wrote specifically about foreclosures. I have helped many dozens of buyers purchase foreclosure properties over the years, however despite my buying, selling, flipping homes for over thirty years. I have never bought a foreclosure for myself and I'm in the business.

Get yourself some help before you find yourself in over your head.

In some areas, there is cable TV, and some areas offer DSL, but would need specifics in regards to a straight yes or no. Thanks Dex, www.DexHubbard.com

Sherry McGregor answered:
We have some of the most knowledgeable and talented finance people anywhere, in my opinion, here in our area, who can answer your questions. Most financing is based upon an individual basis and you just need to speak to the people who work in that industry. New laws, changing economics, personal improvement, job status, debt to income level changes, and down payment amount can all influence your loan application. If you would email me or call me, I'll be glad to get you with a couple of loan officers to discuss your financing capabilities. ... more

Sherry McGregor answered:
I will be glad to send you owner finance properties already listed on the MLS system if you contact me. 828-837-0424 The requirements you are seeking will probably NOT be the easiest thing to obtain, but, having an agent work for you who is on the ball, might mean the difference between you getting that property before someone else snatches it up, or missing a chance. Let the people who know what they are doing and work in the industry on a daily basis do their job. Give me a call. ... more
