You could rent your current home and buy a new one (if you are qualified and have enough income). Talk to a local mortgage broker who works with wholesale lenders. Some lenders do lend money for purchase of new home while accepting the future rent of the current residence as an income. I would love to help, but I only work in California. ... more

I am a Real Estate Agent who services your area and would be happy to meet with you to discuss your current situation and perform a Free CMA on your home to give you an idea of what your property is currently valued at. The valuations you see on the various website do not take into the condition of the properties and allowing a Real Estate Agent to perform this service for you will give you an accurate estimate of the value. Once you know the value of your home, you will be able to make an informed decision as to how you would like to proceed. If I can be of any assistance or if I can help you in anyway, don't hesitate to give me a call.

Before you list the house, there are certain things that you must do; first , check out comparables to determine the right price ,next make sure the house is "ready" to be shown to potential buyers,.You must also, have a plan for showing it and weeding thru interested buyers to ensure they are able to pay for it.
Selling a house is not as simple as it seems, having an agent makes it easier.
I have lived and worked in the Plainfield area for over 30 years, so I am very familiar with the area.if you give me a call or send me an email, I would love to work with you.

All agents are different in how they will treat these types of listings, the key note is that even 1 lost potential buyer is too much. If you have to question it you must have the same feeling that something may be wrong with it. In life you get what you pay for. hiring a listing agent is more than just paying for a listing in MLS. Most agents who specilaize in listing homes will tell you that the commission paid is more than covered in the higher sales price and quicker time to get a property sold. You often hear about saving pennies to throw away dollars??? You would be missing out on the guidance and assistance of that listing agent through each step of the selling process. Pricing your home right, marketing it not just placing a listing in MLS and hope an agenty brings soemone by, negotiating both a sales price and the best terms for you, taking care of disclosures, state forms and federal forms, assisting in home inspections, the appraisal, keeping an eye on the buyers financing and closing the deal. The botton line is flat fee litsig are bare bones, some agents will shy away from them so some potential buyers will not see your house which could lead to a longer sale and lower sale price. ... more
