More recently, homes will sell for within 3 percent of their list price (allowing for reasonable CMA price).

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed, you can however try blogging about the property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site. ... more

Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached; perhaps check census data. When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. Again, if unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors.

Its going to depend what area of Wauwatosa you are in as some areas command both higher prices and higher rents. Most recent sales (last 6 months) for 3 bedroom duplexes in Wauwatosa range from $183,000 to $315,000. Rent range for those same sold properties range from $725-1200...again depending on the area and the overall size.

If you would like to see the available Wauwatosa duplexes please let me know and I can send you a complete list.

That would all depend on what your budget is after the divorce. I do not think it is a bad idea at all and would love to sit down with you and we can weigh out what is on the market that would fit your wants and needs.

If you do not have interest in some of the outside maintenance that is involved in owning a home maybe a condo would be another option rather than renting.

There are only about 100 rental postings in the Multiple listing service. None are in Wauwatosa. There is one listed in Trulia. Craigslist has close to 400. Many will be relists and non single families but that's probably your best bet. You can try and zillow too. Very few people choose to rent out their single family homes. ... more

Hi Amy,

I'm currently looking for a single home to rent in the Tosa school district. My work is transferring me up to Milwaukee next month so I'm looking to move middle of July. If you are seriously interested in renting out your home please contact me so we can talk. I'm married with 2 year old twins. No pets, no smoking. I would love to find out more information.

Alison Hillman answered:
Hi Teauna,

What is the property you are referring to?

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Simon Campbell answered:
There are two types of potential foreclosures: judicial foreclosures and non-judicial foreclosures. Judicial foreclosures require that a court approve and oversee foreclosure auctions. Non-judicial foreclosures allow the lender, whether a bank, government agency, or private lender, to schedule, arrange, and oversee a foreclosure auction on their own.

Depending on whether the law in your state requires judicial foreclosures or not, foreclosure auctions will either be held by a representative of the court, such as the County Clerk or Sheriff, or a trustee of the lender, usually a lawyer or representative of the bank or government agency.

Houses are out there. I just sold a foreclosure in Wauwatosa. The best way to find them is through an experienced realtor. There are codes for foreclosures that you don't find on Trulia and etc. Have an agent help you.

Spirit Messingham answered:
Expired, no longer active on the market. It was a short sale as well, you can alway contact the seller directly. You can find out more by searching public records, try your county assessors site, do a parcel search which you can do by full address or their name if you know it.

Best of luck.

Tom McCormick answered:
Ehoelsy - The trend for the past 18 -24 months is longer market times and lower prices. However, that is the overall market trend and every property is unique. We base all these analyses on averages, medians, etc. Averages are just that, an average of highs and lows. So some properties are selling significantly faster than others, and some are selling at higher prices than others, based on the individual property! Don't assume that the trend applies to your property until you talk to someone who can provide an analysis of YOUR property, taking into account the unique advantages and disadvantages of its location, amenities, etc. All that said, it is a better time to be buying than selling, for sure. I do know there are some lenders who are very flexible with loan products to make purchases work for buyers, as long as they aren't selling to the secondary market (fannie/freddie/FHA). Hope this helps! ... more

Pat & Steve Pribisko answered:
Since you don't have a Buyer's Agent to prepare a Comparable Market Analysis, you are at a disadvantage. You should make appointments to view similiar in the area that are for sale to see how they compare to the home you are looking to buy. Look at important items like age of furnace, central air, roof, windows, breaker box versus fuse box, etc. Those items are expensive to replace. Also, look for updates areas in the homes. ... more

You might consider equity partnering with an investor to rehab and flip that property.
