Yes, when you close on a new home you will need to place enough money in your escrow account to have a full payment in there on the next tax due date. So depending on the time of year and how taxes are paid (annually or semi-annually) you will have to contribute to that account. You will also need to reimburse the current owner for any taxes that they have pre-paid on the home. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
The efficiency of an open house is regional. In our location they are an effective piece of any marketing plan because they produce activity. In other locations, where weather and seasons are a factor this approach may not be as productive.

Even more important is the location of the property. If you are off the "beaten path" open houses may be a total waste of time. A homes visibility adds to open house sucess.

Hope this is helpful.

If it is a hot market and your house is in great shape then you should be listing at slightly above market value. If your area is a buyers market and you have a lot of competition then slightly may be the way to go. Check with a local realtor to plan your strategy ... more

Russ Ravary answered:
Listing agents send out emails to other agents in the area. But most of the marketing is done by your mls. Agents who have clients that are looking for your property will go to the mls first before they open any email from an agent. Think of it this way. There are hundreds of properties listed each day. That would be hundred of emails recieved for properties you may not have a buyer for. ... more

You will have a financing contingency on all but cash offers and the loan terms must be stated. More than likely, the Buyer qualifies for the loan amount at 3.5%, but may or may not at a higher rate due to debt/income ratios. What exactly are your concerns in regard to this contingency? ... more

Hi Mary,

In our area we are successful with home sales year round thanks to the military population and government employees who transfer on a regular basis. Sell at the time that is good for you. In our area (Anne Arundel County) the inventory is at record lows and demand is very strong so if your home is properly prepared/staged/photographed and blasted on the Internet it could sell in days! Best of luck. ... more
