It is possible to buy a home in these areas without having all cash.

You should get pre-approved for financing or talk to a lender now about your income & assets to see if you could qualify in the $400K price range. I would suggest selling your home & trying to get a 90 day rent back period so you can go & buy the next house WITHOUT having to make an offer Contingent upon selling your Ontario home.

Please shoot me an email directly, I can check on your area sales, supply & demand, maybe you can get more than $290K today. I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.

If you are making an offer to purchase, you do not need any proof to make the offer. once accepted the bank will require an appraisal. If you are buying cash then you should make sure you see the comparable sales from your realtor.

You should be working with a Realtor if you are buying. If it is in Passaic or any where in Northern Jersey contact me.

you need proof of funds or mortgage approval to make an offer if that is what you meant.

If you can tell me the specifics about the type of house you are looking for, I can send you a list of the inventory available as well as information about what comparable properties have recently sold for. I can also provide you average sales prices for certain areas or neighborhoods which should help give you a good benchmark to compare prices of homes you are looking at on the internet.

As a whole though, our market for residential real estate in Tallahassee is getting stronger and prices are trending upwards. Also, the inventory of homes is smaller than it was a couple years ago. Because of this, we're not seeing as many super low priced properties in good areas like we were seeing a year or two ago.

If you are interested in me sending you my latest market statistics for Tallahassee or the information I mentioned above, please feel free to contact me.

A lot of factors come into play, most noteably price and location within the village. The short answer to your question is: with a median home price of 630k it is 77 days; with an average home price of 792k it is 162 days. This is during the last 12 months. Expect both numbers to drop as the inventory continues to decline. ... more

Wish I could give you a detailed response, but this really requires that we see the house in person. We can usually get within +/- $10 - $15 per square foot knowing the area & getting answers to some basic questions, but to get you the best number we should spend a few minutes having a quick look inside. (Not trying to scare you off, just want to be honest.)

After gathering data we pull up a list of homes similar to yours, hopefully with 1/2 mile that have sold in the past year, look at active listings similar to your property, then adjust them to more closely match. After adjusting each we take an average then give you a pretty good estimate of an expected sales price given the current market.

If we can help just email or call. We live on Lookout ourselves & know this market very well.

In the real estate world, a space can be considered a bedroom if it has a door that can be closed, a window, and a closet. But building code requirements that vary from state to state will determine what can and cannot be considered a bedroom. ... more

GrandersonDavid answered:
Search for homes in your zip code, or street or neighborhood, and see their price per square foot. That should be enough to give you a general idea.
There is usually a difference in asking price per square foot and selling price per square foot, so keep that in mind.
Hope that helps.

Lee Taylor answered:
I just wrote this email to my client, looking at a shadow inventory house in Underwood Hills - copy/paste:

"Nothing on record for lease or for sale in either MLS going back years. Someone held this for awhile.

So what are some of your thoughts on this shadow of shadows?

And, dude - a highway house?

What if the highway needed work?

What if debris flew into your yard?

What about the noise?

How long will it take to resell when you want to resell it? Well a good place to start is with this shadow of shadows of a property, and with a bank as the defaulted owner struggling with a house that is quite difficult to value unless you value it low low low...

I can not suggest paying more than $150000 for this house - you could lease this for $1500-1700, maybe, as long as it's in good shape..."

Hi Meeta,

There were several options in Dublin but the ones with the bigger lots and more square footage have increased the price range in the next release. I have several buyers looking for new homes in Dublin and I would be happy to tell you of the differesnt builders that may still be a possiblility for you.

Make sure you take an agent with you so they can register you there. If you have not registered at other sales offices, please take advantage of what your agent can provide you The builder will pay your agent a commission so it costs you nothing. I give my buyers a lot of inside scoop on how much the homes are going up in each phase, what the whole neighborhood resale homes are going for and if it makes sense to buy in that development. By getting an agent you have a lot to gain and nothing to lose.

Hi, That's a great question. It all depends on your goals and the outcome you are looking for. It will be based on your current competing available listings, current pending sales and what has sold most recently and how they compare to your home. If you'd like to get an idea for your specific zip code visit

That type home, for all practical purposes, doesn't exist in Coppell. There is one home currently on the market in Coppell, built after 2000, that matches what you're looking for, however, it sits under the high voltage power lines in southeast Coppell. There is a small subdivision on the west side of Coppell with zero lot line homes that may come on the market, but nothing at this time. ... more

T.E. & Naima Sumner answered:
Wow, I wouldn't say that a community with builders actively building and selling is declining. Things were slow the last couple of years, but I think you'll find it hard to locate distressed properties in the area.

So, no, I don't think there is anything wrong, but the time to get something in Wylie and nearby is now. Inventory levels have plummeted the last few months and builders take at least 6 months from contract to close.

One of the reasons the north Rowlett area and Sachse/Wylie are more popular now is the opening of Bush to I-30 from Firewheel and DART from Rowlett to downtown Dallas. This connectivity makes it a real draw to live in the area.

Note that USDA loans are still available in some areas of Wylie but they have moved the eligibility line eastward. You might also like Sachse or Lavon or Nevada.

Hello Betty,

I have sold a number of new builds over the past couple years. The builders have started to ramp up production as of late. It really depends what type of home you are looking for but generally speaking I am a big fan of Lennar, Pulte, Pepper Viner, Meritage, and Maracay. These builders excel at what they do. This does not mean there are not other quality builder in town.

Please feel free to contact me at your soonest convenience and I would be happy to speak with you directly, especially regarding what part of town your are looking at, product types, models, price point, financing terms, and the laundry list goes on....

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I don't work in California, so I can't speak to Redfin specifically, but I have watched several discount brokers go out of business completely here on the East Coast. I guess it depends on what you want in a realtor. If you are willing to do most of your own work, then go with the discount folks, but don't go crying when you get short changed. But, remember, you get what you pay for. I have found buyers save more by going with a full service realtor than they do by going with a discount brokerage. Kind of like a For Sale By Owner that thinks they will save money by not paying a commission, but, on average gets far less for their home than they would have if they'd paid the commission in the first place. It's your call, but you need to consider all the implications, not just rebates. ... more

Tammy Hayes answered:
Parkridge is a gated community with a pool and is close to shopping, restaurants, movie theatre and downtown. There have been some short sales and bank foreclosures in that community. Right now I only show one Active listing in the MLS for Parkridge.

I show 10 Active listings in Renaissance. The HOA fees are quite high in there, but they have a lot of amenities such as gym, spa, yoga & message rooms, movie theater and more. The community is on Sarasota Bay. The Renaissance is located in the heart of Downtown Sarasota and theater district. Just walk across the street to the Van Wezel Concert Hall and bay front. Marina Jacks, Bay Front Park, Whole Foods Market, Selby Library, Saturday Farmers Market and a large variety of restaurants and shops are only an easy stroll away. Sarasota lifestyle, culture and marvelous sunsets are included in this location.
