Oh boy, that should have been addressed with the Seller and his agent BEFORE he accepted the offer. If the Seller is unable to bring the cash to settlement and the mortgage can't be satisfied, the property cannot be sold.

The Seller has made a commitment to sell you this property. I would suggest that you work through your agent to propose alternatives such as the seller getting a non-secured loan or a loan from a family member to resolve this.

If you are not off by that much, you may even want to offer to meet them half way if you are able.

Always know that you can consult an attorney for detailed contract advice.

Hi KC.

Who did you use as your lender? Ocean City is a town driven by condos. All of our local lenders know how to get loans closed. I don't have as much faith with lenders from out of the area. I know several excellent lenders in this market as I live and work in OC.

Aside from dealing with someone locally, it really is like finding a needle in a haystack; I don't have any Sellers who are interested in doing owner financing. Most just want to move on. That said, if you send me your criteria I can search for potential properties that might offer to hold the note for 5 years. I can be reached at 443-235-3828 or dleiderman@cbmove.com.

Best,

Dave

The information you have is correct. There has been little activity in this building.

There are some condos here that are listed as single family home-so you can not rely on the statistical data- it is far inflated and does not represent the lower value of the condo property versus single family. I would call the agent directly and ask them to change it so you can compare actual condo pricing and value.. ... more

There are fantastic investment opportunites here in Ocean City, and you are on the right track seeking an oceanfront property, as they are in the most demand by weekly renters. You have many options when choosing a resort investment property. Some owners choose to block out certain weeks of the year for their own use, other feel that the income produced from the summer season is profitable enough that they reserve the off-season just for themselves. Ocean City has events that draw tourist throughout the year, so if you are guided to the properties that suit your personal and financial goals, I feel you would be pleased with your decision to invest here. I would welcome you to email me directly(see below) and I'll send you an overview of the options to consider when choosing a property, as well as the services I can provide to assist you in making a wise and informed choice. Thank you for your interest in Ocean City and I look forward to hearing from you!

Dave Leiderman answered:
Thanks for your inquiry.

There is no across the board answer right now. While some units have shown slight increases in value, most in OC are stagnant or even showing modest decreases still. We will need much more than 6 months before we transition from a buyers market to a sellers. There is typically a stagnation period in between. I would anticipate this to be the short term forecast for at least the next year.

Dave Leiderman answered:
I would have to agree with everyone before me. If the choice is strictly between more square footage and a second bathroom you have to take the latter. With that said, you have to consider that most larger units in town come with a second bathroom anyway. Generally speaking, a property with a minimum of close to 800 sq. ft. (some are 750 - 798) will have 2 bathrooms. The larger the unit the more bathrooms in most cases. Many 2 bedroom condos in town below 800 will offer only 1 or 1 1/2 baths.

Depending on your price range and desired location there may be 2 bdrm condos priced competitively between those with 1 baths vs. 2.

Make sure you're working with a Buyers Agent to ensure that you get the information and representation you need.

Best,

Dave

Terry Looney answered:
Hi,
I just answered your question based on a single family home deveopment in West Ocean City, MD. It then occured to me that you may be asking about the condominuim development Whispering Woods. The housing development pays HOA fees which refers to Homeonwer Association Dues. Whispering Woods Condominium has condominium dues, which typically include the master flood policy, master hazard insurance for the buildings, the water (in about 99% of cases) exterior maintenance, management company in some cases and a few other things on a case by case basis. If that is what you were referring to then the condo fee works out to $195 a month. The water is included in the condo fees. However, there is a sewer sanitation charge that is paid quaterly. There is one listed now at $155,000 which doesn't list that fee,; the sanitation charge is based on how many fixtures are in your unit that empty into the sewer. I would be just guessing without first calling the city to find out , which I would be happy to do, and get back to you. Let me know if this is what you were asking about, or did I get it right the first time.
Thanks,
Terry Looney

Hi Chuck,
I realize this was posted a while back but thought I would follow up. If you would like to receive e-mail alerts of new listings of foreclosures that would match your search criteria, please send me an e-mail and I can put you on the 24-7 Home watch that my company Prudential Carruthers offer's. It will send e-mail alerts and new listings that just come on the market.
Thanks and good luck,
Deeley

Dave Leiderman answered:
Unfortunately time elapsed on the market doesn't always have the impact that you'd hope for. Its usually a clear sign that the Seller(s) are unrealistic to the value of the property and even after almost 2 years their opinion of value may not have changed much. There is no going rate per se, certainly not in the form of square footage. The best way to propose an offer is to try to find similar value from recent sales. Pardon the plug, but working with an experienced Realtor will ensure that whatever offer you make will be an educated one. Feel free to contact me with any questions, dleiderman@cbmove,com. ... more

tim zito answered:
To answer your question about the past due condo dues, the bank will need to pay these dues to be able to offer you a clear deed to the property. The title work that your attorney or title company will perform for you will find out all items that are against the title at that time.

It is best to work with a buyers agent who understands the distress sale market and how to best advice you through the process.

I myself am a certified short sale / foreclosure agent and will be more than happy to offer you my help in any way that I can, if you are interested in a purchase in either Maryland or Delaware beach areas.
