John Sacktig answered:
Yes. Check with your agent. There should be no attorney review as of yet, since the bank has not accepted your offer.

If you made the mistake of working with an unexperienced sort sale agent, then in the future, no attorney review until the bank responds with acceptance or a counter offer.

either way, yes, you can withdraw the offer.

A pre-approval letter is absolutely NOT binding. The key to a pleasant home buying experience is choosing the right professionals to work with; especially for your mortgage. I am sorry to hear you've already had unsatisfactory relations with whoever you were working with but it's definitely not to late to consider alternative lenders who can meet your expectations. To best understand your current scenario and provide you competitive pricing please contact me at your earliest convenience so we may weigh out all of your options and devise a plan of action to get you to closing smoothly and stress free.

Kindest regards,

Was this info disclosed to you by the realtor?
Isn't it the responsibility of the seller?
Is this fraud ?

Hi Miranda

This is a not a for sale listing. This property is a public record showing that the home owner is behind in mortgage payments. I'll have an agent contact you.

Hi Happy,

So want did you do? What happened and where are you within the Short Sale process?

The $1,000 good faith deposit was going to happen, it shows you have interest in the property and gives the homeowner some form of verification that you are a true buyer. Since there is actually no accepted offer there is no reason for you to tie up any further money and I hope you did not.

Did you speak to the Realtor or Attorney involved and make sure that you are not going to be charged for any service if the bank does not accept your offer?

Please give us an update!

Hi. It really depends, newer properties tend to be higher than say an older multi family or single family home. Can be anywhere from 6k - 15k depending on when it was assessed. It has to do with the city's budget.
If you're buying new construction then I would recommend you contact Weehawken's tax assessors office directly and have him calculate it for you.
If it's an existing property I can look up for you what the properties taxes currently are. Contrary to belief, the property taxes are not adjusted with each new purchase price/transaction.

Hello JJ. I have seen some homes that do rent out individual rooms however to be safe, as the other agent said, you should contact the city of weehawken rental board and ask. If you9;re living in the house and decide to rent out rooms as roommates then that's a different story and is completely at your discretion.

Just be careful and make sure that the tenants are all on signed leases and that you have security deposits. Also Weehawken is a tight knit community so if you do rent out individual rooms to a large, remember some neighbors can be nosy.

Hope this helps!

Sales office will often tell you a lot of unit are not available because it's sold. Don't believe it, it's a sales strategy, they are trying to limit you within a certain choices and push you buying. As far as I know, my recent client bought a duplex there for a little over 600k with no view. Town houses resales are a little over 1mil, great view. Why bother to buy the new construction?? You have to decorate from the scratch, not mention the higher preperty tax on new homes!! ... more
