Tinsley Homeowner,

The major factors in selling a home has been, location, price and condition. In this type of market, you must also consider competition. Not only are you competing with other homeowners, but also with bank foreclosure who have "larger pockets". Inventory is expansive where buyers at this time of year are not. Lots of choices for fewer buyers. There has been and will continue to be a influx into the Ft. Lee area, but the buyers are considering how long they will be in the area, school systems and what would be the best bargin for them. You should decide how badly you want to sell or are you able to ride out the market until end of winter?

Richardson/Plano area is fabulous, in fact it's where I live, for the same reasons as you are discussing. The schools for the kiddos are fabulous (RISD was ranked #1 in large school districts). The communnity is centrally located to shopping, the arts and transporation.

As to your obtaining a loan, I doubt your international status will cause you too many issues. I have worked with many couples coming from overseas without a hitch. You will just need to meet lending requirements.

If you like, you can send me your e mail address and I can forward several lenders here in Dallas that I recommend who can pre qualify you. That way you know your price range and can narrow down your search area. I can also set you up on a gateway to our MLS that will privide you with automatic updates of new properties on the market that fit your criteria.

Looking forward to helping you!

In the 1980s Haverford had a superfund site but I believe that it has now been remediated see for more information. It seems that water contamination was the main problem but the water supply inthis area is mains and there are few wells if any.

Havertown is a much sought after neighborhood with great transport and amenities.

How high is the HOA? there are not many town homes in the Mission School District . I saw some homes that are in the low 700k range in the mission school district if that is what you want. Warm springs goes to Irvington high, which is the 2nd best rated school in Fremontl. My older kid graduated from Mission and my younger went to Irvington. Just for FYI, the younger one did better in High School and managed to get into a good college ... more

Karen Parsons Fiddler answered:
Hi Gabe,

I think you are right about pricing. The only concern I would say is to watch the school districts. Have you considered going a bit further south? There are some nice areas in Irvine and even further south than that. For the same money, you can get quite a bit more in Mission Viejo and there are some really nice schools there.

I'd be happy to talk to you more if you like..shoot me an email and we can chat..or you can search some home prices at my website at

The lease market is crazy in Houston right now.....which Cypress is more or less a part of.
As long as the rent is right and the property is attractive it could take as little as a week two a month or so...
Three bedrooms homes are the bread and butter of the market, so as long as the rent makes sense and the home shows well and has clear signage from owner in front yard or is listed with a Realtor so their sign is in front and rental listing is in might not take much time at all.
If you are interested I would like to discuss this with you and help you lease your home, as I happen to probably live 10-15 min from you

Forget #1. You can't do it legally. And if you get caught you will be fined and required to remove the second kitchen. You will be caught. Neighbors always report that sort of thing. If for some reason you are not caught, and there is a fire or other mishap and and someone gets hurt or dies, you will be sued for everything you have, and you will lose.

Forget #2. If you operate a rooming house in a single family zone, everything in #1 above will also apply.

I would simply buy a legal 2-family. Much less hassle.

Also, if you buy a single family and obtain a mortgage, the mortgage will usually stipulate owner-occupied single family usage regardless of the zoning. If the bank subsequently finds out you are using the property as an investment, they will recall the mortgage and you'll be screwed. And they will find out. They monitor that sort of thing.

Crime you can visit police website.

When we have had clients confused between two communities we recommended for family go hang out in that local area, parks, pretend they live there over weekend, shop in stores, dine, speak with residence of city, tour schools, WOW sometimes city thought they loved decided was not match for their personal or professional lifestyle.

Compare the schools ratings by contacing ISD.

Place all on excel spread sheet pros and cons look at global picture.

With your budget, you have many possibilities. Much will depend on your willingness to commute to and from work (if you ware working in Manhattan). Even though the market in NYC and the surrounding area was affected by the declining real estate market in recent years, it certainly has not been hit as hard as many areas in the country. If you are interested in receiving "Listing Book" which is a great tool to view homes, please provide me with your email address and contact information and I will furnish that to you. Good luck!

Wayne Beals answered:
A keen observation.

Perhaps a lot of the reason behind this can be attributed to the fact that many of the properties on the market currently were listed and priced with comparables that were higher from an earlier period. Recent closings indicate the need for prices reductions and initiate lower buyer offers (buyers usually check the comparables before making an offer).

Over the last six months, Hyde Park and Kenwood have averaged exactly 89.74% of list price for closed single family homes.

Compare this to Lincoln Park which has averaged exactly 93.18% of list price for the same period.

Over the past three months, all lakefront communities from Rogers Park to East Chicago have averaged 91.56 % of list price at sale.

I do agree that list price versus sale price in Hyde Park and Kenwood has a larger gap than average, but it is not as much as you would believe from the examples that you have seen.

I have worked in Hyde Park and Kenwood for the past five years. Sellers traditionally don't price their properties with these ratios in mind. They are hopeful for "top dollar," regardless of market conditions and what "top dollar" is. As far as I can tell, these ratios show that sellers in Hyde Park and Kenwood have become more negotiable in regards to offers.

This would be a GREAT time to buy your dream home in Hyde Park and Kenwood, given the data. Find the home you want, check the comparables, and make an offer.

Best of Luck and, as always, contact me for further assistance.
