or would it be better to finace the land with minimal down payment and borrow less money for the house. Can you get a loan for the land and house as one?

You have to own both lots before you can petition to have the lots combined.

Septic systems are not public like sewers ... so if you own the lot on which the system resides .... you should be able to remove/replace the system (unless there is an easement in place). ... more

I have a question about Maronda.

First, I bought our Maronda home in 2004. 3100 sqft home with 4 bedrooms for 215,000. It's a great home! We have had very little problems. Granted, they do use cheaper materials in terms of cabinets, faucets, flooring etc. However, we knew this going in and were ok with it. We had planned to upgrade everything, and that is what a buyer of Maronda should think about.

We are now selling our home because it's just way too big for my wife and I as we are now empty nesters. Our landscaping is top notch!, a huge paver patio. We have added hardwood floors, tile, new cabinets, lighting etc.

The area I live in is a very hot market. Homes around here are flying off the market in a matter of days and the average price per sqft here is 120-150. However, when I speak to agents, they all say Maronda is junk and tell me my home is only worth a fraction what other homes are going for. I even had one agent tell me that she discourages her buyers from buying a Maronda home.

Here is my question. Is this ethical? It's the agent at that point acting as a home inspector? How can he/she say its junk when they don't have the experience nor the knowledge of the foundation, the framing, the roof etc, and make that statement just by walking into the home.

How can my home be 40% less than a home down the street built by a different builder, but upgraded to the same materials? I have had no leaks, not mold, nothing broken.. we love our house, and we have had no real issues in 12 years (aside from things we have had to maintain). We did replace the furnace because the one maronda put it was under sized.

It seems unethical to me for an agent to make these kind of assertions based on hersey and stories from other people about their homes. The truth is, all builders show up on rip off report and have unhappy customers, but I am very happy that we bought this home, except for how the realtors are dissuading potential buyers away from my home.

Sally Grenier answered:
Sounds complicated. And expensive. Might be better if you could hang your license with a nationally known company, such as Re/Max or Coldwell Banker or some company that has a good reputation in both states. But you'll have to do everything separately. Two licenses, two MLSs, two brokerages (even if they are under one brand name). ... more
