Not too sure about Indiana, rtboyer73, but in Georgia you may search for homes using dozens of different MLS criteria filters. Please call, text or email if we can provide further assistance. Good Luck!

John Biank answered:
Value is in the “eye of the beholder” as they say! Does your home have more living space than the one with the extra garage? Maybe someone has no need for that and would prefer not to have the space. In general, homes do sell for more if they have more amenities, but all factors have to be accounted for. Best of luck! ... more

There are two MLS services in metro Atlanta. GaMLS and First MLS. Gamls has the numbers beginning with 7 and FMLS has the numbers beginning with 5.

Most Real Estate companies belong to both MLS. If you are seeing price differences between the mls listings then there was probably a price change and the listing agent forgot to update one or the other mls listing.

Let me know the address or either of the mls numbers and I can get the correct price for you.

I dont understand your question. MERS relates to the recording of a mortgage. The real estate agent has no part in that.

What does YOUR Agent/Broker say, Reese? I advise my Clients to ask for as much as they can get, the closer to the actual Closing Date the better. Please call, text or email if we can provide further assistance. Good Luck!

Bob Southard answered:
I am not particularly familiar with them. However there are a few things I will say about buying a newly constructed home.
1.use your agent and do not deal directly with the onsite agent. Your agent will get a commission split form the seller so there is no cost to you. Several things that the agent needs to help you consider such as what will future development in and around the neighborhood be like, review the neighborhood covenants, get you comparisons to other similar neighborhoods and more.

2. Get a home inspection!!!!! Just because it is new does not mean it is all correct. Every single new home that I have ever sold has needed some type of correction after the home inspection. Sometimes minor and some items were fairly significant. One home home had roof trusses that apparently were broken in shipping. Everything might be perfectly fine while you own the home but when you go to sell those things that were incorrect will show up on that buyers inspection and at that point you own them and are responsible for repairs.

Please let me know how I can help. Thanks

answered:
A consumer credit report differs from the credit report lenders use.

Mortgage lenders use a Residential Mortgage Credit Report (RMCR). Often you will see different scores than what you purchase online, because the formulas are different. Lenders place a heavier weighting on installment payments, especially mortgage histories.

This report is referred to as a "tri-merge" report because it pulls data from all 3 credit bureaus.

We will use the middle of your 3 scores for qualification purposes.

You should speak to a lender ahead of applying for a mortgage, because a loan officer can review your report with you and identify any areas that might need work prior to applying. This is much easier than trying to do it yourself since there is a lot of misinformation on the internet.

Hope this helps!

Blake Bonner answered:
Hi Alisha,

I have found information on the property in question. I have contacted the listing agent to find out more details on it. The Marietta Square is 5.9 miles from this property which is about a 15 minute drive (depending on traffic). Also in the area to the south, is the Cumberland Mall which offers a variety of different shopping options. The area directly around the Cumberland Mall is jammed packed with different types of department stores, grocery stores, etc. A few miles to the north of this property is the Towne Center Mall. This is a large mall that offers a great variety of shopping as well. Either direction that you desire, you are sure to find the shopping that you are looking for. Please contact me for more information regarding this property or any other property you may be interested in.

Best Regards,

Blake Bonner

Cat,
It will not be impossible, but it may be hard to do. The best thing would be to call around to your local property management companies and ask what their policies are. You may be required to get a co-signor or maybe pay a higher deposit, etc. ... more

Robert A Whitfield Broker answered:
Hi Chloe,

If you mean the water "plant" new Mt Bethel PO behind the new homes - that has been there for years and has not affected the surrounding East Cobb market at all. How it will affect the new homes right in front and within view of the plant - lets just say I would not buy there.

I am all about getting a great home that must also qualifiy as a sound investment.

Let me know if I can help you.

it is unlikely you will find an attractive home at that price in Marietta. There are some low income appartments tht may get that low. Check some appartment sites.
