Typically the city takes care of it, but if they aren't then you can hire a service to do it for you. I would recommend asking your neighbors how they have it taken care of. There are a lot of different services available to us these days concerning rubbish removal, and I'm sure you can find one that works for you. Good luck! ... more

Unfortunately, when you see the real tytrac logo, you can be pretty sure that the listing is more designed to get you to buy their "service" than it is to help you buy the property.

You can search the registry of deeds (free) for foreclosure information if you know how and have the time.
I would contact a local real estate professional to save time and money.

VIP is status useless to professionals, and backwards to consumers.)

I agree with Debra, you have gone this far and the sellers agent can provide you with the same comps. As to the offer, it is not as much about the price as it is about it being the right home and meeting your time requirements. Remember the seller is under no duress to sell as their home is not ready for them to move. Based on a quick search of the property it is in excellent condition with may extra's it does not seem unrealistically priced although it has been on the market for 123 days. There have only been 9 sales over 500k in Rehoboth in the last 12 months and there are 3 presently under agreement. I'd be happy to give you some direction, but at the same time do not want to jeopardize your open communication with the sellers agent. call me if you'd like. ... more

I have gone back through 3 years of sales on the MLS, and can't find any history of 56 Anawan having been listed or sold. Current public records shows the last sale date as 1/1/83.

In my personal opinion vinyl siding is trash. Your original wood shakes will dry rot and the siding nails will not hold in high winds. Pick up a rock with your lawn mower or toss a ball with your,children,and damage the siding; you'll never match it. The sun fades it so even if you have saved some from the original install, it will not match. The other thing I dislike about vinyl is the "chimney,effect" in case of fire. Not as bad as with aluminum siding but still a factor. The fire burns the dry rotted wood like kindling and races up the side of the house sometimes blocking escape through windows. If you can possibly afford to replace your original shakes with shingles or clapboard the value or your home should INCREASE! Go with wood! This is New England after all........ ... more

You should ask a local realtor for help. You need to compile some current sales in your area that are similar to your home in amenities and size, a realtor has access to that information and can print you out some comparable, "sold" listings. Good Luck! ... more

A Bank's obligation with respect to foreclosure of residential properties is to list their properties on the open market. Your best option will be calling a Real estate Agent that can help you .

Good Luck,

It will be hard to get financing on as is properties just as a warning. You are better off purchasing a property in fairly good condition that is priced right. You could try and apply for a home equity loan to do work on the property but again could be difficult.
Our company offers cash back advantages when buyers close on a home so perhaps this is something that will help you financially. If you would like to know more about how it works feel free to email us here: or call 617-848-5407 extension 701

Scott A. Nelson answered:
That is a somewhat common occurance from what I've been hearing. Alot would be determined by the contract language. You should always consult an attorney when going through these types of deals to protect your interet. The short sale negotiator may have one working for them and you might also hire them but if your interests differ from the negotiators in any way (like the situation you describe) then having your own personal attorney to protect your interests is important.

You'll need to have an attorney review the facts & documents you have and tell you what if any remedies may or may not be available to you.

Hope that helps
