Sometimes you just have to go see the house and leaving out some pictures makes a buyer want to go see it. Adding too many pictures can sometimes be worse than not having enough as many buyers look for reasons to take a house off the Go See list when they shouldn't. Go see it then decide. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Choose your agent with care--interview a few agents from different realty companies, then choose the one you like best-- ask about scheduling around your needs, who will choose the properties to be seen, can you expect updates on new listings and recently sold properties, and how often will communication occur, etc. Ask about current sales in your areas of interest, negotiating strategies, etc. Buyers should be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. If you need assistance, feel free to contact me directly. ... more

You will need to talk to the title company that is doing the paperwork for you. There are usually attorney fees, doc prep fess, courier fess etc. They should provide you with an estimated (HUD-1) closing document that outlines all fees. Best Wishes!

Dear Arash

Since you already have the cash and once you are preapproved any of those areas would be a great place to begin looking. Each of them offer a very lucrative rental market and a potential for you to have a great return on your investment.

I would strongly recommend that to hire an agent to assist you with your search.

Best of luck.

Hey Mike,
You know, before your question, I never heard of a "family opportunity mortgage", so thanks for your question because I just did some research and educated myself. It seems you can try Chase (if they still do it, they had a press release on line from 2007 and with the recent problems getting mortgages ...) But it seems that you take out the loan according to your credit score but that your mom's income (benefits) would have to cover it. Good luck!

Start by contacting any local lender and go from there--review all your co-op documentation as some boards may require approval first.

Your attorney can advise you best, and it appears that you already asked him/her the question, and that you are being advised to close only upon title clearance--therefore, listen to your attorney--not knowing all the details nor how much money is involved--is the seller planning on paying off the lein at closing I wonder--either way your attorney can best advise you as to how to proceed, terminating the contract, etc. ... more

If you are part of the Long Island board of Realtors, call LIBOR/MLS at 631-661-4800 and ask for the tech department. I am sure they can assist.
