Not sure if there is a best day, both seem equally good--why not try rotating one on a Saturday, another on a Sunday, etc.; 2 hours is more than plenty, the serious buyer will visit within the time frame if there is any interest in the property. What is your agent suggesting--he/she is your best source of traffic patterns in your area. ... more

I would discuss with your Realtor and go look at comparable homes in your area. I would also ask are those updated and upgraded features stated in the comments on the MLS. I would ask, where are you advertising my home? Does your Realtor only have it on the MLS or other areas of the Internet. Does you Realtor pick up their phone? Call under a hidden number and see if it gets answered. Sometimes Realtors just move on if they cannot get a response from the Realtor. Have you allowed easy access besides the open house? You need to make it available when buyers want to see it, not just when it is convenient to show.
Just some questions to try to get to root of problem.

Good Luck!!!

Unfortunately, Dennis, buying a home isn't like buying a can't return it. Now, maybe Macy's might take it back,, but for sure the sellers (or especially, the bank) won't!

I don't know why you now wish you hadn't made the purchase. If it's financial, then the best you can do is hang in there, stay current with your payments, and wait for the market to at least stabilize, and then try to sell. That, however, is most likely several years away.

Whatever the other reasons might be, there isn't much you can do but make the best of it.
Of course, you could always look into renting it out if the numbers work. Call in a Realtor, and find out how much you might get asa a rental. If you can cover your monthly payments then that might be one solution.

Good luck.........

Are there really any "good" foreclosure properties? Just kidding, I have nothing productive to add here. But I do know of an awesome agent on the South Shore. If you would like her contact information shoot me an e-mail through my profile.
Good Luck!

If you post the address I can get you the answers you want or your could click the below link, find the property and get all the detailed info you need:

in regards to question #2, if the condo association has specific restrictions on the units then, yes, you may run into issues with renting. The only other issue would be if you financed the property as a primary residence and then tried to rent it. Your bank would not be happy and like raise a red flag.

hope that helps!

Take the NET income, do not count debt service, divide it by the purchase price, that is your cap rate. There's more info at the link below.
