You probably need to consult a good tax professional or real estate attorney since it's a very specific & technical question. If it were up to me I'd give it to you but Uncle Sam may not agree. ... more

YES you can do that, buyer / seller has to comply with terms and conditions and laws of state for selling a property.

Scott A. Nelson answered:
My first question would be, what qualities make a school great in your opinion? Real estate agents aren't qualified to evaluate a schools qualifications. You'd have to consult the Mass Dept. of Education website for school qualifications and make your decsions from there, there are also alot of 3rd party school rating websites out there also.

Next comes finding a 3 bedroom home within 30 minutes of Lexington and especially a low price of $280K or less. There are fewer options out there with such a low price. Give your parameters you will probably have to compromise either home size, school ranking or other features.

Now the good news, given the current market, now is actually a great time to actually find such a home. Just a year or 2 ago those parameters might have been an tall order. In my opinion and perhaps a personal bias take a look at Medford. You could also look into Woburn, Reading, Stoneham, Billerica, Burlington, Waltham etc. Finally in other states 30 minutes drive can cover quite a distance, here in the Greater Boston area that can be a very short distance due to traffic, road conditions, weather and Massachusetts drivers.

Good luck in your search, it'll be great to have you as neighbors :)

Cameron Piper answered:

Don't try to force this into a mold using statistics and formulas. What you should offer for the home is what you feel the home is worth. The only way to know this is to see a bunch of houses, hire a realtor, and looking at similar historical sales. There is no magic number and what this house is worth has nothing to do with what other houses are selling on the list to sale ratio. It is possible that all of the other properties were overpriced. It it also possible that this one is only worth 75% of list price. The only way to know is to do the hard work of educating yourself on the market.

Failing all of that, the house is worth what you feel it is worth and are willing to offer. You and the seller will quickly discover whether you have common ground. I hope that helps.

Mike Hughes Team answered:
Hi Harley,
Sounds frustrating … a few properties come to mind, but there are alternatives if your perfect match is not currently on the market. In the past, I have helped people search for their ideal home by looking at public records, then contacting owners – to see if they have plans to move. Another option is to find a home that is the right size and location at a price that will allow you to customize to your exact taste. One of my team members also owns a construction business, so quick estimates are simple. I’d like to help with your search … would you like to discuss further by phone? You’re also welcome to meet me at the office.
I look forward to being of service.
Best regards,

Val Cloutier answered:
Joyce, most real estate agents will have access to the foreclosure lists, both current and upcoming. I would recommend finding an agent that could help you by supplying this information. Since there are a multitude of banks and mortgage companies that are foreclosing on homes every day, there is no central database of foreclosures. The sites that promise a "list" are providing a service and would probably expect to be paid.

Also, I think you may have accidentally posted this in the Massachusetts area instead of Kentucky. Best of luck with your eventual purchase and sale of a home!

Jose Gomez answered:
Crazy ideas? Yes and No. You are not crazy to want to promote your property even further nor are you crazy for riding the wave of offering incentives or contributions to a buyer. Times are tough and we all must do whateer we can do to get the job done. Two things that you might want to really consider are" First, are you over-sweetening the pot? By offering too much a buyer might simply say to themselves, the property is way over-priced and that's why they are "including all these incentives" with the purchase. So keep things simple. Secondly, if your agent is advertising and marketing your property correctly to gain maximum exposure and you want to place your own ads - then by all means, do it on your own account. You are only helping yourself further. By asking your agent upfront to reimburse you at the closing of the sale for advertising costs, he/she could simply say "forget it - I don't want to do it" and then what? you don't advertise at all? You'll wind up cutting your nose to spite your face. So in my opinion, if you want more exposure, above and beyond what is being offered, then get creative in your own ways. Best of luck!

Joanie answered:
Are you referring to Lexington, KY? I recently moved from Lexington. It is a beautiful area filled with green horse farms, trees and a clean friendly downtown. There are tons of restaurants as well as night life, due to UK being situated there. As for the Asian community, there is a small population; probably working at Lexmark and at the University. I will say that it is harder to make friends because so many people have lived in Lexington their whole lives and seem to stick to the friends that they have. If you like to boat, you are in the right place. You have Lake Harrington within 45 minutes and Green River Lake within 90 minutes. You can also access Lake Cumberland within 2 hours. By the way, if you are looking for a great house within New Circle (where you want to be) mine is for sale! ... more

Your best bet is to contact a Realtor in your area. If friends and family cannot refer you an agent then try your local realtors.

Good Luck
