Laurie Loparo answered:
When agents put in the information, they should specify if it is a time share. If they don't it will show
as the type of property and the smaller print will be note that it is a fractional ownership. Some websites offer more specific detailed searches and you may be able rule time shares on those sites.
Usually you can tell based on a price if it seems too low for the neighborhood, there is likely a reason.

I can put you in a detailed search if you would like me too. Email me your criteria and I can send you the lisings. Let me know how I can further assist.

Ryan Killian answered:
Thank you for your question. The answer depends on the offer made. In making an offer on a property a Buyer will actually fill out a SC contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate. In that contract the Buyer will fill out a section that gives the Seller a deadline to respond to the offer, otherwise the contract expires. The typical timeframe is anywhere from that same day, to 5 days, depending on the situation. If you'd like more information on how you should address this deadline please feel free to call or email me. I'm a Realtor with Carolina One Real Estate located in Mount Pleasant. Have a great day!

Steve Rowe answered:
Jeff, I will assume you are asking what the bottom line the bank will take is going to be. If not, then ignore the rest of this...

The bank will get between two to five opinions on the home's value. The listing agent will provide a good price opinion, and they will likely get one or two additional BPOs (Broker Price Opinions) and an appraisal.
Depending on how long it takes for an offer to come in and then get processed through the bank's loss mitigation department (weeks to months), the bank may make their sale price decision based on the initial price data or might order a newer appraisal or BPO. That will be one of the primary tools they use to set their "not lower than" price.
So, the current fair market value for the home will drive the bottom line they will accept, along with other possible conditions specific to that home's file such as other liens on it, whether or not there is mortgage insurance on the loan to soften the bank's exposure, and possibly other factors.
So, does this sound difficult to sort out? Well, it is, and isn't. As a Buyer, make your offer based on good data, have a strategy, and understand the probable outcomes.
Let me know if I can be of assistance.
