My sister-in-law lives and works in Arnold. When we visit, Murphys is a favorite place to go for dinner and some drinks. As I remember, most homes that are not all wood have what appears to be asbestos siding or wood shingles.

You may be able to negotiate, but if you are unsuccessful, you are going to see a lot more rentals built the same way. If you like it , rent it. The way I understand the dangers of asbestos, you would have to be constantly exposed to the fibers for many-many years before any harm would come to you.

Happy funding, Rudi

If the agent you are interviewing refer's to the internet as a modern technology...keep looking!!!!

Sunnyview had some good marketing tips, but Mack is very correct in that you need to be careful to not step on any Fair Housing Laws. You should work with your agent to develop a target marketing campaign that you both agree with.

Also, for areas like yours I think that working with an agent that lives and or sells a good amount of property there is the way to go. They need to love your home and the area to market it appropriately and to appeal to the right buyers.

You could also sell it with creative financing. You also could equity partner with an investor. You might be able to do a swap with another seller (perhaps for an income property).
