That's a great question. It's so important to find a real estate agent that fits all of your needs, including one that practices on a contingency basis if needs be. I would recommend asking your friends and family about which agents they've used and liked. You could even ask your neighbors about what agents they've used. I hope that's helpful information. Good luck! ... more

Are you thinking about paying cash for a condo or are you waning to estimate your PITI and condo association dues to get a ballpark monthly cost to live in a condo? Tulsa county assessor website has a property search feature. You can enter the address of the property and see the estimated tax for the prior year. Things to know about taxes are they are paid at the end of the year. If you are paying cash for a condo then you would be given a tax bill in December with option to pay half in January and half in March. Another thing to consider is that if you purchase a property and the purchase price is significantly higher than the assessed value then you can see the taxes go up accordingly the next year. Feel free to contact me if you need more understanding about this or if your question is for a totally different reason, I am more than happy to help answer your questions. ... more

Where did you hear bad things?Where did you hear good things? I agree with Jim, best thing would be to go to the house you are interested in and talk to the neighbors. In my experience neighbors will provide you with good insight to the neighborhood as well as the previous homeowner. Like Jim said go around 6PM and see if there are kids are playing, people walking their dogs, watering shrubs etc... ... more

Patty, I can't speak to those soccer fields specifically, but I have lived near the soccer fields in Jenks and it was not a problem. You hear the sounds of kids playing on Saturday morning, but for me it is a pleasant sound. The soccer season usually starts about February or March and ends around April or May. You will have practices after school in the evening and games on Saturday. Usually kids are pretty focused on playing soccer and younger ones are with their parents and they get in and get out. I haven't heard anyone complain about living near a soccer field. If you would like to look at the property, I would be glad to show it to you. Just give me a call.

As REALTOR's we cannot say that one neighborhood is "good" over other neighborhoods. However, if you can tell me what "good" means to you, than I can tell you what neighborhoods fit that criteria. Tell me a little about what you are looking for in a community, neighborhood and home. I'd love to help you, email me or call me anytime.

Good Luck!

Sale Pending does not mean the home is SOLD. It does mean that a deal has been struck and the Buyer and Seller are in the process of moving toward closing. The Buyer will have a time table to perform his due dilligence and if a financial supplemental is attached to the contract the Buyer will be working with a lender to procure the funds. The Buyer has an Equitable interest in the property and certain rights as specified in the contract. The Seller will also have obligations relating to delivering title and delivering the house to the buyer in the condition agreed to in the contract. Sometimes, whether in the Buyers due dilligence period or as the Buyer attempts to obtain financing, or for some other reason, Sellers and Buyers find out the the contract cannot be consumated as agreed. When this happens the home might be offered for sale once again. If you are interested in this home ask your representative to inquire about the status of the contract and how strong the prospects are of a closing taking place. I would be happy to check it out if you give me a call ... more
