The current real estate market in the Silver Lake area of Providence is relatively strong. I have many buyers currently looking in the Silver Lake area. If you are thinking of selling, I would like to provide you with a much clearer picture based on your specific property. A home's specific size, style, number of bedrooms, etc. may make it stronger property in the eyes of buyers. Therefore, it is important to know the specifics when looking at the area and how the current market will relate to one home over another. This information is also relevent to home buyers when looking for the right proeprty. Feel free to contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you.

If the buyer is qualified there is no need for them to take over your Mortgage payment. You would just need to sale them the house.

That is the easy anwser to your question.

Now if your property is upside down, meaning you owe more on the mortgage than the house is worth. Then you will need to do a short sale. You don't have to be in default to do a short sale. You just need a hardship, and a real estate agent to list the property. Steven gave some sound advise based on your question.

I am a Local Real Estate Investor, I specialize in negotiating short sales, at no cost to you. But before we go to the short sale option. I would like to speak to you about your situation with saling the house because you might not need a short sale, and like I said I am a real estate investor looking to buy.

you can contact me by email: or 401-952-5772

Thanks Matt

If they have different APN (Assessor Parcel Numbers), you should list them separately:
It would complicate the purchase if they were together.
You can create TERMS which would require a joint purchase;
but this would complicate things too.
Suggest keeping it simple.

Probably none.

Soap is the best investment, followed by caulk and paint. Clean is Queen when it comes time to selling a home.

The problem with calculating potential profit from a kitchen or bath remodel is that you have to subtract the value of the current facility. A worn or tired kitchen still has a lot of utility value; it isn't as if it was burned out in a fire, right? Also, correcting the number one item on the list just makes the next item "number one." So you fix the kitchen, now you have a great kitchen and a lousy bath. Fix the bath, and the exterior paint is beat. Repaint the house, then the interior needs painting, Then the deck. It can go on and on!

Clean, caulk, paint. Repair - fix things that are broken, leak, or present a safety hazard.

Great and funny answers below! Lisa, this market is certainly unpredictable and until most of the Foreclosures shake out and interest rates stay somewhat stable the current market will stay flat or continue to somewhat decline. Keep in mind that for Buyers, the current interest rate is "key" and the opportunity is now for sure! ... more

Hi Matt,
It sounds to me that your condo is not FHA approved or you wouldn't have to get 20% down. If this is the case, then you need to speak to a mortgage person who can tell you all the options for a conventional loan.
Good luck

Hi Joe,

I have several buyers looking for 3 family homes, location is the key. Also, keep in mind as others stated below that the asking price must be fair. When considering price you also want to keep in mind that if the home is not already upgraded for the new fire code, it will have to be done and soon. This upgrade can be a significant expense for a buyer. I would be happy to do a comparison market analysis for you at no charge, let me know.

Best of luck,
