If the question is pertaining to Murray Drive, it is in a 55 plus park and it is a lovely neighborhood, peaceful, but friendly. Of course that only my opinion and you would best be served driving around to see for yourself.... more
Wish I could get you more photos, but there are none. Have you driven by the location? and like? If you are working with an agent they could get you in to see this. It is on the same street at the Rochester Middle School. The city has it assessed at $114,000 and it is held in a trust which could mean a couple of things, but it does not appear to be a foreclosure.... more
I think this BANK OWNED property description states it all...
"NO VIEWINGS of this property. Please DO NOT DISTURB the occupant. "As is" cash only sale with no contingencies or inspections. Buyer will be responsible for obtaining possession of the property upon closing."
I'm sorry but it does not look like you will be able to view this property, and if you do decide to buy this home it would be your responsibility to obtain the house and remove the occupants.

Yours is a question that we get occasionally, and it's a good one. You ask would it make sense for somebody to trade something like a different house for your house? Probably in the 1800's that would have been a really good option for you--in the days before income taxes and property taxes and legal tender that really seems to work pretty well.
But today--not so much.
At issue is the value of your home. That value is usually guessed at annually by the municipality so they can send you annual taxes--and by a buyer who would buy your home, and by an appraiser when you find the buyer who in turn wants a mortgage. And all these numbers need to be recorded at your county tax office.
So let me say, it's easier and cleaner when you do all this using American dollars with a real buyer who uses cash to buy your home. If you are having a hard time finding such a person, perhaps your marketing is not effective, or perhaps your asking price is too high. Discuss both these issues with your Realtor--before you have to discuss them with your lender. We can't blame the mortgage rates right now, they're in the 4.75 range for people who have decent credit and a job.
