You might also check with your state real estate licensing department to see if there have been any disciplinary issues against the agent you are considering.

Patricia ("Trish") Christoforo answered:
Hi Emily,
Both Geneva and Canandaigua are lovely places to live, and actually, the city of Geneva has a slightly higher population than the city of Canandaigua. Both offer beautiful lakefront public access and historic downtown areas, and a variety of housing options. In Geneva, you will find primarily older historic homes in the city, with a handful of newer construction homes available in the surrounding areas of town. In Canandaigua, you will also find historic homes in the city, as well as some newer construction, both in the city and in the town. Total population of Canandaigua city and town is about 14,000. My recommendation would be to spend some time in both cities, asking the residents how they like living there, and what they like best about their city. People who live in the community are the best source of information on life in that city.
If you'd like any help looking at homes in either area, we work in both areas and would be happy to assist you in your search. You can reach me at 585-208-5551.
Best of luck in your move!
Trish Christoforo

Lisa Liberio answered:
If you can find a home in the Town of Geneva, the combination of the tax rate is about half of the City rate per $1000 but the homes are assessed higher in the town. So its a catch-20.

Your timing could not be more perfect. Well, actually, last year would have been better.
With the information you have shared, it is reasonably clear you need alternatives to building wealth.
Looking towards a real estate investment is the most practical and obvious solution at this time.
You would be well served to consult a financial planner to establish a long term plan that includes a real estate element.

Let me be honest with you, if your finances are so tight you can not save the money for a down payment, you may be setting yourself up or future disappointment.

Be aware, wealth building through real estate may require buying what you can afford, before you can buy what you have always dreamed.

Get real guidance from real people, you know, those you can call and meet.
Set up a strategy, and implement the plan.
You ARE on the right thought.

Best of success to you,

If you are buying the home with your boyfriend (including getting the mortgage) his income would be included. If you are not planning to get married shortly afterwards, have your lawyer do a buy sell agreement. This agreement decides in advance what will happen if one of you leaves or dies. ... more

William DeCook - Free CMA's answered:
Congradulations, I know this could be a very exciting moment !! First thing, my opinion is that I am honored to be in this profession. We are in a position to help people make their dreams come alive, I don't understand the rudest of some. But, you should also understand that at certain points of the transaction access is necessary to the property and arrangements should be made through the agents. Please put yourself on the sellers side, everyone builds a personal attachment to the homes, now for some unknown reason they must move they might feel their being invaded over-night. Respect for the stituation needs to be established up front between parties, good times for the buyers to show off their dream and good times for the seller to cry over the move. ... more

Michael Ofsanik answered:
The homeowner's insurance policy should cover this since it was accidental and not malicious on the part of the inspector. Anyone could have bumped the stove and had the same occur. If the policy has lapsed or is insufficient the inspector should have General Liability insurance to cover it. E&O insurance covers Errors & Omissions from their inspection and report.

Purchasing a fire damaged home is not a problem if corrected properly. Take photos before, during and after remodeling in case it is an issue in the future.

Make sure you have smoke and CO alarms with good back-up batteries. Test them monthly and replace the batteries every 6 months.
