All landlords ask for a security deposit to ensure that the apartment will be yours. If you move in your deposit goes towards any damages if you break lease & suddenly disappear. Most people use the security deposit towards their last month rent before they move out which in the eyes of 98% of the landlords of NY is unprofessional. What some landlords do is they ask for a small deposit upfront if there currently showing the place This small deposit is to hold the landlord for the days hes not showing the place in case you come back 3days later & say I decided im not going to take the place.

If you do decide to take the place you just have to pay the difference.

But don't forget at the end when you decide to move out you get your security deposit back.

What's holding this house from being sold? Seems very appealing, though yet to see it up close.

I agree with Tom. It has been my experience as well that the majority of buyers entering an open house without an agent are buyers whom are not ready to take the leap into homeownership. When they attend an open house that is listed with an agent you can spot them as they do not engage with the agent and do not have any questions about the home.

Do Realtors get buyers from open houses? It is not as easy as you think. My main focus of running an open house is to get as many AGENTS into the house with THEIR buyers. A buyer working with an agent is usually a buyer that is already pre-approved. Most agents will not take buyers out unless they have a pre-approval. Are the people walking through the door at a FSBO open house even qualified? Are they showing up with their pre-approval in hand?

In my 10+ years of selling real estate I have sold a home twice to a buyer at that open house in which they were not with an agent.

I hope this info along with the other responses has helped you.

If you would like me to refer a top agent on Staten Island please do not hesitate to call or email me.

Best of luck to you.

Since no property is given/visible--rather than waiting for a call, why not consider working with an agent of your own...

As for your legal bonds--consult with your attorney as he/she can best advise you on any legalities--also do keep in mind that in order for a binder to have some kind of validity it must be signed by all parties and money needs to be exchanged--again, your attorney can best advise, consider a consultation. ... more

Melissa, based on the loan amount provided, as Debbie stated, you would have to pay monthly mortgage insurance.

Depending on the type of loan you go with, the MI can range from $120-$190 based on your loan amount.

Feel free to contact me if you have more questions or if you'd like to discuss your situation fully. As Irena said, there are alot of factors that would affect your payment.

Good luck!
