Hello Neville,
On average property managers will say occupancy rate is 50% of the year. However Winsor Hills is a very popular community, so it can very well be over 50%. Let me know if you have any further questions.

10% is the average. Some agents even ask for up fees on them. I personally don't deal with them.
Good Luck.

I think that the highway noise and dust will hold down potential resale on these units. They are now priced at about $200+ per square foot. I think you should see Black Rock at well under $200/SF before buying at the Retreat or Park's Edge.

Anthony Cincotti answered:
Hi Tony,

That is a tough one to answer as there are many factors to take into consideration, for instance, if the property is going to be mortgaged it is going to have additional closing costs that would not come into play on a cash transaction.

Also, purchase price is going to affect it as well. And of course, in real estate anything is negotiable so you may be able to have the seller cover many of the closing costs if they are highly motivated to close.

If you would like to go over the specifics or have any other questions answered please feel free to reach out to me. I am always happy to be of assistance,

The most common objections to mobile homes that I hear from clients, are that they depreciate like cars, you do not own the land in the mobile home park, you must rent your space, they are difficult and expensive to finance, the space rent is often very high, they are not as well built as "stick built:" single family homes ... more

Darrell D. Drouillard answered:
That is an interesting question. I have had similar discussions here - obviously you are talking about holding the investment and not flipping if i understand correctly. I'm a realtor but also an investor in San Antonio. I work with another investor also. Both he and I are in agreement that we prefer vacant homes/duplexes.

Many investors like occupied properties so there are no real holding costs and the income is immediate. That is a good rationale, but I argue differently. Just because the home is occupied doesn't mean the tenants are current on their rent or pay timely....I know you can get rent rolls disclosed in the contract and all, but I honestly don't like to mess with it. Also, if the home/duplex/4-plex needs repairs or updates, it's 10 times easier to accomplish while vacant than it is working around a tenant.

Of course a vacant property means you must have funds to not only cover repairs but also carrying costs. Typically most foreclosures will be vacant though you may find exceptions under the newer laws to protect tenants, but that is still very, very rare.

Hope this helps.

Good Evening,

The market is improving - with home sales raising considerably last month. A contract for deed would allow you to most likely get more for your town home as the buyer would be willing to pay a bit more for your to finance the transaction and you will be able to avoid an appraisal on your property. Rentals are also an option to selling, but since you would be out of state you would most likely want a reputable company to manage the rental property.

To help you make your decision, I would definitely get a Comparative Market Analysis on your town home, then I would interview a few realtors to assist you in your decision making process. As one of the top realtors in the Twin Cities, and office out of Anoka County, I would love to help you out. Please contact me at 763.443.3733 or


I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Good evening, if the home is a single family residence and it is a cash purchase, the approximate closing costs would be as follows:

Title insurance policy $525,00
Transfer tax and fees $425.00
Closing fee $400.00 to $600.00
Optional and additional costs:
Insurance policy $600.00
Home warranty plan $500.00
If there is an existing survey and you choose to accept it (I would advise against that), you may save a couple of hundred dollars more, Otherwise you would hire an surveyor and that would cost about $300,00 for an ALTA survey which would show all current and permitted structures, easements, etc.

If you financed the property, you may have the following additional closing fees:
Title insurance (add) $435.00
Additional tax and transfer fees $550.00
Plus you may have to consider a few to several months of tax and insurance paind into an escrow account in addition to loan origination fees (points) which could vary depending on your lender.

If the property is an REO (foreclosure), you may be required to pay for a re-occupancy permit or certificate of occupancy which may cost from $600.00 to $1,500.00.

If the property is a short sale, the seller's lender will most likely pay for your title insurance policy.

If the property is a condominium or a home in a planned unit development with a home owners association, you may need to pay some months of maintenance into an escrow account to be held by the association or property management company at closing.

If there are assessments that have not been paid in full prior to the transfer of the property, you or the seller may be required to pay for all of the remaining installments of the assessments at or prior to closing. Yes, I know, that could be a deal killer.
It is important for me to re-iterate that all of the figures I provided are approximate and there are many variable that can affect your actual costs.
I hope this helps but I realize it may be difficult and confusing to come up with a realistic projection. That's why our office usually provide a prospective buyer with an estimated buyer's closing costs estimate before they submit an offer so that they can have a better idea of what their total costs might add up to be.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have questions or need additional information.

At your service,

Joe Robaina, P.A.

Donna Thewes answered:
Rentals stay on the market for several reasons. There might be a large surplus of rental units in that area, the rent they are charging might not be similar to the others in the area as well as the condition of the property. Rentals can work in any area if you do your research.

I recently have been helping some renters look for homes in the 20724 area as well as buyers. It is a strong market if the property is priced right. Fort Meade is expanding. What it really comes down to is, what are you willing to spend, are you willing to be a good landlord and maintain your property and do you have a good property management company?
