I have a home for sale in the $400's. The feedback on price is positive from realtors (who toured it) and buyers (showings). No complaints on the price, however, they seem to be turned off by the general look and feel of the homes in my neighborhood, which I can't control. Any suggestions on how to sell fast? ... more

Hi Melissa,

It depends on your income to debt ratio. How much do you owe on the
house, cars and other long term debt each month compared to how much
you are earning each month. I see where you are going - find a home you
like, move in and then put your current house on the market.

Call my sister, Vickie Topmiller, 317.509.1935. She's been a loan originator for over 20 years.
Tell her I asked you to call and give you some advice. I'm good at what I do, Melissa. So is she.

Good Wishes,

Hello Melissa,

Riverwood is a good comparison. You are probably looking at around
$60k - $70k as a sale price if your home is in good condition. The attic is the
most important place to insulate - by a professional - may not be expensive.
Fixing your roof may not cost as much as you think. Contact a roofing guy.
You don't describe what the front of the house needs, but a handy man may
be able to help. Building up the backyard would be pricy and may not be needed.

If you sell "as is", you are probably looking at mid $20's - $40k depending on ... condition. Buyers will
push down sales price when they see repairs are needed.

There are a couple of homes listed in the Riverwood area right now. The agents listing those homes
should be a good resource to you no matter where you live near the river. They can also give you
references to good handymen. Drive by those homes and call those agents. They'll help you decide
what's best for you.

Kind Regards,

Sales information is available by searching recorded information at the courthouse. The quickest and easiest way is to search the brokers listing cooperative, BLC. This used to be refered to as the MLS. This is a service realtors subscribe to and is not available to the general public. I'm a lifelong resident of Noblesville and have been a broker for 17 years. Contact me with the address and any other questions and it is easy enough to forward this to you. The BLC is the source for all other aggrigaters who compile information and send it out on the web, therefore it's the most accurate and up to date. Other sources are prone to errors and are, in my opinion, not very accurate. (listing price as sales prices, wrong price to wrong home, Wrong price altogather,etc) I'm at if I can assist. -Eric ... more

Hey Maggie!
Plenty of good advise.
Federal law does require a lender to remove PMI when value is at 78% or less of apprasied value. Today's lenders look at this many different ways these days. I work at a Indiana Broker and be more than happy to answer direct questions (don't worry I won't try to refinace you unless you want) email me with your lenders name and I will get you the rules they use. I may also be able to have an appraisor looks up some comps. $400 +/- is about right. Do not spend unitil you know the lender has the apprasior approved.
Hope it helps.
