I don't think buyers should be giving gifts, it works the other way around, I believe.My brother -a Realtor in Ft Lauderdale is now sending flower subscriptions to his customers, I honestly think it's brilliant, say you send a customer 3 months of flowers they keep seeing your name for less than $100

Age of a properly functioning heating system that has been well maintained should not be an issue.
Seller can be asked, but if it is working, they would be within their rights to take the position that "If it's not broken, why replace it?"
The same is true of full copper water heaters that were constructed prior to the concept of planned obsolescence.

That's not a total scam. That's how Trulia offers a "free estimate"... they give your name to several real estate agents (whom they charge for the opportunity to talk to you), and those agent will give you a free estimate on the value of your home (we call those CMA's... Comparative Market Analyses)...

There should be no charge, and you want to get a consensus from several agents.

Trulia still offers a good site for those searching for homes... but they don't allow individuals to list their homes here on Trulia. They only accept listings from agent-represented-properties.

The normal practice is to have a real estate attorney come into the picture is when there is a signed contract between buyer and seller. At that point, the contracts are sent to both attorneys and Attorney Review begins. ... more

Hi Ella, It does depend upon your price range. For instance I have a 5 bedroom, 3 full bath Bi Level home on Dodd Street in Verona, with a large addition. This home has an In Law suite on the ground level with 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, a family room, office, laundry room and two walk outs, a large yard and deck, currently listed for $599k. All three of these towns are wonderful communities to live in, with higher rated school systems, and are priced higher then some of the other surrounding towns because of their location and school ratings as mentioned. Please fee to contact me for any additional questions or concerns I can answer for you. Always happy to help. ... more

I've helped many clients and contractors during there renovation projects and can say that it's very hard to pinpoint. I would recommend receiving 3 detailed bids for the project which outline the costs. It helps that you're not involving bathrooms as they usually eat up the budget quickly.

I'm unsure if you're intending to pay for the addition / extension out of pocket, but you should be aware that there are a few renovation loan programs worth at least considering. It allows you to wrap all costs into your mortgage and generally has minor affect on monthly payment; especially since it lets you keep cash in the bank and readily accessible.

If you'd like to weigh-out your options and see exactly what the project would cost from a monthly perspective I'd be happy to help; it's all about knowing your options. I may be reached directly via phone or email, whichever is easiest.

Kind regards,

Questions regarding tax matters should be addressed by an accountant - real estate agents can't give tax advice or legal advice.

The lifetime gift exemption changes each year(5,250,000 for 2013). Your parents can give you the 100K and they still will not pay taxes on it. Form 709( gift tax return has to be filed) in order to comply with the IRS regulations.

If you need further assistant please call me
