I can help you with model names with SF at the addresses but I don’t have the actual floor plans. The home owners might have copy of the floor plan from the builder but I didn't see this information posted online.
Feel free to contact me with any questions. I know this community very well.

Thank you.

Hi Mark,

A good place to start is by contacting a competent realtor who can take a look at your home and provide you with an opinion of what you could sell it for in today's market. The Oregon City market has been shifting in favor of sellers the over the last few months and has seen some value appreciation.

If you'd like me to provide you with a value, please let me know. I am local to Oregon City and know the area well.

Jerry Heard answered:
I can understand your frustration, If you are working with a Realtor who really knows what you want they can guide you in the way to make the best offer quickly. Cash does not always make that big of a difference if the home is in sound shape and your offer is strong. Most of the homes being sold these days are financed.
Living far away is more of a problem than the cash buyers. Since many people are making offers you need to get your offer in right away. If it takes you several days to see the home, it may already be off of the market Your Realtor needs to sell you to the seller and their agent. It is not just a matter of sending the offer in.

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Well, no one should rush into buying a home, afterall, it' s not like buying a coat that you can return if you decide you made the wrong choice!

Basically, though, you answered your own question - you said: " I want to wait until..........etc.".

Ok - so wait!

I don't know how long you have been looking, or how comfortable you are with the buying process as yet......but no agent should rush you into makinf an offer.

That being said - it shouldn't really take that long to speak with, and be pre-approved by a lender, especially if you're working with an agent who can recommend some good mortgage reps.
I do suggest you use someone who is referred to you.

Overall - you may just not be ready to move forward, and that's ok.

It's fine to take your time before you jump in with an offer......just make sure you won't regret holding back if the house sells before you're ready.

If it does - there will always be another house!

Only you can tell if you're ready.

Good luck!

I would hope that some local agents, from the Aiken, SC area, will come along and actually answer your question!

If they don't, you can always check Trulia's list of agents above, and reach out to a few of them for help.

Best wishes.........

Micah Kennedy, Real Estate Pro in Murfreesboro, TN
Tue Jul 7, 2015
Micah Kennedy answered:
Good morning! Honestly the best way to negotiate new construction is by having a buyer-side real estate agent who will have only your best interests in mind. If you contact the builder directly then you will be an unrepresented party. The builder always has his bottom line to be aware of. Any money above the bottom line he makes will be bonus-type money. If you are interested in having a buyer-side agent please contact me at or give me a call at (615) 594-2406. Have a nice day! ... more

Stephen McRory answered:
You need to stop looking for homes and not waste any realtor's time until you get your own house in order and clean up your credit.

The credit score is not all that matters, Getting to the 620 score just gets you into the dance, you still have to get a lender to dance with you.

How do you know you have a 609 score? If you did a WORTHLESS online FICO (aka FAKE-O in the mortgage industry) credit check, you're actual MORTGAGE credit score could be much lower.

See this about "ONLINE" credit scores:

If you want someone who will not sugar coat things and tell you the facts, contact me and I'll help you if you're willing to put forth the effort to help yourself.

I would say honesty is the best policy. Tell the listing agent your intention. He/she is paid by the seller at closing.

Sat Feb 16, 2013
Shannon Jones answered:
Hi Rachel,

Yes, that's very feasible. You won't pay any commission as a buyer -- that's paid for by the seller. When you decide to rent it out, the typical fee for property management is 7 percent.

You'll want to consider potential rents when determining whether a particular property will make sense to convert to a rental property. We can help you compare sales prices as well as evaluate future rental potential.

Please feel free to call or email if you'd like to discuss your plans in more detail. I can be reached at 562-896-2456 or

Shanna Rogers answered:
Hi Jacedionne,

Get pre-approved for your loan (unless you're paying all cash) - so you know what properties you should look at for purchase. And, hire a Realtor to assist you - unless you know all the Real Estate laws in your state. The seller usually pays all the commission - for both the listing agent and the selling agent (buyer's agent).

It goes past being unethical. It's actionable by the NYDOS if it can be proved that the agent representing the buyer knowingly failed in his/her fiduciary duties.

Javier Menes…, Real Estate Pro in Melville, NY
Thu Mar 19, 2015
Javier Meneses answered:
Assuming that you're working with a Realtor, they could walk you through the steps. Once you have determined what you feel comfortable as far as a dollar amount offer, you and your Realtor will fill out a binder, which is used to present a written offer to any seller. If you're not working with a Realtor (I strongly suggest you do), you would pretty much speak to the seller and agree on a price and terms. In either case, after there you guys reach an agreement, it's then put in paper (contract). Good luck!

Marilee Nickelson answered:
Hopefully you are going somewhere wonderful! There are a lot of things to consider when deciding whether or not to sell. One is how much you owe compared to how much you will be able to get out of your house. Another is if you would consider keeping it and using it as a rental. As you know, there are many military families that are stationed here, and some may prefer to rent -- and rent from another military family. If you will have no other ties to this area, you may prefer to make a clean cut, and move to your new area without having to look back.

I will be delighted to talk to you and provide you with a market analysis on your current home. This will at least give you some info that can be helpful in making a very big decision!

Warm regards,

Jay Cooke answered:
Hi rkhjr2008,

Depending on style, amenities and finishes the costs can vary widely from roughly $200 to $450 a sq. ft. If you go the modular route, the costs can decrease dramatically. Some of the other variables might be needed site work, utilities including water and electric etc.

Look at the newer construction in the area, find homes you like and go to Town Hall to see who built them. That way to can deal with folks whose work you like and who have built in the area.

Good luck,

Chris Alward answered:
There aren't that many houses for sale in Lehigh, half the houses you see as available show up on sites like Trulia and as Active and available, when in actuality they are probably short sales that have multiple contracts on them. Under the status of Active Contingent Short Sale, these homes still show up as for sale to the consumer on these sites. If you'd really like to see what is available out there and what you can get in your price range, email me at and tell me what you are looking for, or call or text me at 239-699-8233. Thank You.

Any answers I could offer would be guesses. I presume this is a short sale and they can take anywhere from 2-6 months on average. Good luck.
