If the house doesn't appraise for what they bid, would it even matter? The loan company is not going to approve for the amount they bid at, so it should be moot. Also, did you put any EM? ... more

Hi,

Was there a sump pump in place under the house for removing water when it reaches a certain level?

Also, you can talk to a foundation professional that can discuss de-humidifiers, vents, and other topics as needed for a particular situation.

Kind regards,

Arpad

If your home is listed on the MLS, then you should contact your Realtor. The pictures are pulled from the MLS listing. Good luck with your home sale.

Hi Sunil,

You can look at the appraisal to see what the measurements came out at, and also at the listing history (if available), to see if it had different sizes when it was sold through the years.

Kind regards,

Arpad

With the exception of VA and USDA loans, a down payment is required for nearly every mortgage. Balloon mortgages are a thing of the past.

The buyer's marital status is of no concern for the seller. The best offer (highest price or cash offers, no contingency, no closing cost, shortest option, paying for your own title policy etc) is the one that any seller is looking for. ... more

I have seen buyers back out of a sale because the Solar was leased. Some will like it and as long as they can qualify for the lease they may be happy. Others don't agree and may walk away. I personally would not buy a house with leased solar but that's my opinion. ... more

Dawn Peddycoart answered:
You should know what the master policy covers to determine the coverage needed. A good agent will want to see the master policy to ensure there are no gaps and things like how much coverage is needed for loss assessment, what's covered by the master policy and what exposures you may have. It's a good idea to package your home with auto and other insurance to maximize any multiple policy discounts. In Minneapolis, MN the average is around $200 to $300 a year. ... more

Here on Trulia you can find thousands of questions from people who have horror stories, the result of not using an agent.

If the market is really hot, home buyers resort to buying from FSBO's so there is no competition, and the price does not get bid up. This is the one situation were serious buyers are calling on FSBO's. Was that what you wanted? To avoid having them bid the price up?

When selling by Flat rate fee agent or FSBO you really do not have anyone in your corner. Worse yet they often use your property to generate buyers where they would make much more money if they take them to a listing that is listed with a full service agent.

The bottom line is that usually it is the buyers who save not you the seller, and you do all the work.

The cabinet wood can not be burned due to paint presence. As for plumbing recycling is the only proper way to dispose them.

Vinyl, tiles, fixtures are unlikely to be recycled. They will not breakdown.

Hello Resh,

I have had listings in this area, and no one complained about a smell, but traffic is affected.

I don't think there's a way to figure this out other than to go to the area you are looking to buy a home in and see for yourself. If you are worried about the traffic noise from the garbage trucks, then I would also suggest you go to the area on a morning when the trucks are coming in and out. Only you can decide if a smell is an odor you cannot live with, or if the noise is too loud. If you see any neighbors in the neighborhood you would like to live in, you may be able to ask them about any noise or odor issues. Residents know the area best, since they are there 24 hours a day. Again, these things are very subjective, so it is still best for you to investigate by going to the area during the day, at night, and also in the morning when the trucks are coming in and out.

Please consult with a Realtor when you have found a specific home you would like to know more about. You and your Realtor can investigate more closely these matters.

Contact me, if you would like to discuss specific properties or the neighborhood. I can help you!

Best regards,


Huey Nguyen

As a mom of three (now middle school ages) my experience is that my children play with friends they meet at school or in their hockey and extra curricular activities. We don't see as much of children playing with the neighborhood children as in past years. For all of the buyers I have helped in 10 years, I would say a fraction have this as a value -- maybe 10 percent! ... more

Julie Wyss answered:
Hari,

It would be great to meet with you in person to discuss the advantages of working with a high performing Buyer’s Agent.

Would you be open to meeting at my Los Gatos office for a professional buyers consultation? It takes about an hour and we will cover your wants and needs, lender approval, market conditions and negotiating strategies. We will also review the buying process, including timelines, contingencies, inspections as well as title and escrow.

There is no cost or commitment, as you know, I am paid by the sellers so the only way that I get paid is by outperforming the competition!

Let me know the best time for you to meet with me.
All the Best,
