If you want to resell it quickly .. you either have to buy at a deep discount, or take a loss when you resell (don't forget Realtor commissions, closing costs, financing costs, etc). It is generally a very desirable area, so resale or yearly renting should not be a problem (at the right price). ... more

Gail....Ocean View Street is right off of Lighthouse Road. Surrounding streets are Clifford Terrace, Shepard Ave., Morris Ave. and Meadow View Street just to name a few. Ocean View is now a one-way street and you'll have to either drive down Morris Ave or Meadow View to get there.

I've lived in the area most of my life so if you have any other questions, I'd be happy to assist you.

The length to process a mortgage could vary from lender to lender. I would suggest contacting multiple lenders in your area to find one that suits your needs.

Most states have a redemption period during which the owner can redeem their home. Contact a lawyer to find out the details as far as time frame and requirements.

Real Estate agents are not permitted to address questions such as these. Best bet is to spend some time in the neighborhood and see if it appeals to you

Vacancy rates vary depending on which part of New Haven you are in. In general, rents have risen this year and apartments rent fast if priced right.

Good Morning KPerry14,

A few of the homes in the area of 52 Florence Ave are Multi Family homes, meaning they have separate living spaces. Some of these spaces may be next door to one another or one over the other.

52 Florence is a single family home that was just remodeled.

If you are interested in taking a look let me know I would be glad to show it to you.

Eric

The assessment value is usually lower than the market value of the home, however the market value and asking price should be close in price.

Jeff Granoff answered:
Hi, Jeff Granoff here, from GRL & REALTORS, in New Haven. The reason the monthly fee is higher than expected for a condo is because it also includes heat, hot water, and property taxes. In addition, 40% of the monthly fee is tax deductable. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. My phone is 203-494-1337. There are several units currently available. It would be my pleasure to help you find a new home. ... more

Michael Emery answered:
Well I must be the worst agent in the world. I advise my clients to spend less than what they're qualified by their lender. My advice is always spend as much as you are comfortable with knowing you will be making payments for the next 30 years.

I would caution you about taking home buying shows with a grain of salt. Many of them are partially scripted. And the most popular show 'Househunters' is an outright twisting of the truth. In fact the 'buyers' have already bought a home and they're being shown comparable homes. But for the sake of TV the outcome is known even before they shoot one foot of film.

And for every $1,000 more a buyer spends on a home, the agent profits approximately an additional $10 to $20. And the home STILL has to appraise, the homeowners have to qualify and the underwriter has to approve it all.

Just remember, in the end the decision is yours as to how much you should spend. And if you have an agent that doesn't understand, find another agent.

The assessed value is usually 80% of the appraised value. Depending on the area, condition and age of the home should all also take a play in the pricing of a home. I would be more than happy to assist you further on your home search and do a free comparative market analysis of the homes you are interested in.
