Hi Kaye,

What I can tell by the disclosure it is not being sold furnished. Wether they would sell it with the furnishings would have to go through the listing agent to find out. If you are currently working with an agent I would have them contact the listing agent to answer that question. ... more

Hello Glormar,
You can find out which bank owns the property by contacting the local tax assessor's office as they will have it on record. However; I can tell you that the bank will not speak to you about the property and will refer you to the listing agent representing the property.

Good luck to you!

Assessments should reflect the value of the property only and (other than they homestead exemption) not be effected by the property being a primary or second home. Have you made improvements to the home? Were there other homes in the area recently built that may improved the value? We would be happy to do a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) for you to see if the assessment could be a mistake. Just shoot me the address here or by personal email and I will look it up for you.

Get an appraisal - it's an independent opinion of value and will look at it as any lender will. This isn't something that's "cookie cutter" and an agent may be either unskilled at estimating value or overly optimistic in an effort to gain your business....

Around here, a buyer can cancel an agreement simply by putting it in writing. I'd send a copy to her broker, as well.

Being a TIC and you say they are selling 100% it appears as though both parties are selling all their collective interests. Much like if you and your brother or sister bought an investment piece together as TIC and then you both decided to sell the property. ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
I am not an attorney and Tenants in Common is a legal term, so check all this with an attorney, but I believe it is used to describe the relationship between a husband and wife. In common law a husband and wife are considered 'one person'. It describes the way the couple 'take' the home, as tenants in common or as one person both with equal and 100% ownership rights. So, technically, they BOTH own 100% of the property unless the marriage dissolves or one of them passes on. If one of them DOES pass on, there is no issue as to inheritance or inheritance tax for the surviving spouse because, technically, they still enjoy 100% ownership. And I believe this only applies to married couples, but again, check with an attorney. ... more

Judy Aselton answered:
In a market like we are experiencing, it is hard to say why a property sells at such a difference in price. However, we still live in a free society and the owner has the right to accept or deny any offer made. Their may be extenuating circumstances regarding the owners that we do not have knowledge of and the sale was made at a reduced price to satisfy the need of that circumstance. Realtors are professionals and are not always at liberty to discuss their clients' decisions, but I guess the only ones who can answer your question would be the people involved in the transaction. ... more

Well, Jj, there are only two ways to find out - make a claim and see if they honor it, and if they don't, see an attorney.

Robert A Whitfield Broker answered:
Dr Retired,

I would be happy to help you with info on this property, if you provide the full address or Trulia link. I noticed you are listed as a seller - are you trying to use 81 Shalom Ln as a comparable to price your home - or are you interested in purchasing it?

Either way I can help you.

Gayle Barton answered:
That is somewhat hard to pinpoint as many properties have been re-listed multiple times. Of course, it also depends in the property type (cabin - vs- mobile home) and location.

I can say that a nice cabin, in a decent location, which is correctly priced (not overpriced) can sell in 180 days.
(Though I did see one today that has been on the market for 777 days...)

If you would like for me to complete a market anaylsis on a property for you, I would be able to provide you with more detailed / accurate information.
