Please contact me, I am very experienced in short sales, to put in an offer, you only need a minimal initial deposit of $1,000 and while you are waiting for short sale approval which can take 30-90 days, you can still save up for your down payment for FHA. Will you be purchasing in CT? Look forward to hearing from you, Julie Lucia, Realtor, Coldwell Banker Realty 2000, 203-578-5631; ... more

Hi David,

I think that the Masterbath is more valuable to most people. People like to have their privacy and sometimes not share the bathroom with others who live in the house.

You can easily get a loan with 0 down. It's always nice to put at least a little down but you don't need to. As for moving expenses you could ask the seller in the offer to purchase to pay for your moving and closing costs. ... more

Hi Victoria,

To give you an idea down here in Florida I have one for sale in a 55+ community. It is not an 2004 but it is completely gutted to the frame and fully remodeled like a house.

New plumbing, sub-floors, completely drywalled including ceilings and ceramic floors.

It is 2 bed 2 bath with walkin jacuzzi tub and his / her sinks in master bath.

Kitchen is granite with built in wine cooler.

Outdoor screened sunroom is ceramic with tiki bar.

Backyard has hot tub with all plumbing and electric underground.

We are selling it for 23,000$ and that includes the essentials (side by side fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer, etc.

Having been around many mobile homes my advice to you is to look around and remember newer does not always mean its better. Watch out for soft or hard panel walls and carpet.

Yes, being adjacent to Choate Rosemary Hall will definitely be to your advantage but there are many othe factors that affect value as well. The 1st step is to have a knowledgeable, local real estate expert give one to your home and give you an honest, realistic estimate of what your home would sell for in today's market.

I would be happy to meet with you at your home and let you know what your home is worth and answer any questions that you may have. Also, please check out my video blog at to get more advice on selling your Wallingford home. Look forward to helping you any way that I can.

If you are planning to stay in your house for a few years it may make sense to make changes to suit your needs for comfortable living. However, if your plan is to market your property for sale in the near future, I would first have a market analysis completed to determine the potential value of your property in todays market, and also examine the cost of doing any or all of those renovations. You can then determine how those changes will affect the value of your property. Some changes make sense to attract buyers. Bottom line ..the numbers need to work. ... more

The federal government legitimately offers $1 homes for sale. ‘Dollar homes” are acquired by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) as a result of foreclosure actions. You can find more information on the HUD website ( You can also find available dollar homes on the HUD website ( These homes usually need a lot of work but can be a great investment if you have handy man skills. Any licensed real estate agent can assist you in finding and purchasing a HUD owned property. In addition to the dollar homes, there are many others priced at well under $100k. This can be a great start for a smart buyer/investor. ... more

In this particular area not really. It is a busy area. I am a top Wallingford agent and am very involved in the community. I have been inside this house. It does have parking behind the store part of the house (notice that this property has two seperate buildings). The parking/garages are on West St.

Feel free to contact me at or call me at 203-980-0549 for additional information on this or any other property in Wallingford. Chances are I've seen it! ~ Linda Conchado, Keller Williams Realty, 821 No. Main St Ext, Wallingford, CT

Hi Mickey,

12 Mulligan Street went under deposit on March 10. It may not close for two to four weeks yet. Until that time, the sales price is not made public.
