You will probably need to look at an extended stay hotel. I would not think that you would be able to find someone willing to rent a furnished apartment for only 2 weeks.

Hi Gsd Mom!
The Shadowridge Lane subdivision is a quiet community and is tucked in country surroundings. I have not heard of any criminal incidents in the Shadowridge subdivision. You may want to contact the Russell County Sheriff’s Office to confirm.
Your travel time to Columbus will be approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Currently, there are four homes on the market within the subdivision. Please see the link below for more information concerning all of the homes. Please feel free to contact me directly for additional information as well. Thanks!

James Gordon ABR SFR SRS answered:
Maria the fastest way to find out is to go up to the front door and knock. When someone answers ask them if they have had problems paying their bills. Let them know that you are interested in buying their home but only as a forclosure not at the true value. You may also want to ask them if they need help loading up their stuff if and when they can not pay their bills. Let them know you will move their personal belongings to the curb and they can load it up from there. ... more

There have been several sales in the Hunters Ridge Subdivision over the last few months. With several foreclosures. Your question has 2 answers. If you want to buy the property and resale you need to get the property for as little as possible. If your going to live in the home . And it is set up for what you want and will be adequate for your needs for the next few years. You can pay closer too or below fair market value for the home. I assume the house your talking about closed on the 13th of January for 129,900 which is a good price for the house considering the upgrades the home has. It all boils down to if you are going to sell the house and when. This house sold for 139900 about 18 months ago. I was the listing agent for the home when it sold at that time. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
The most you should pay for a house is the lower of: (1) the house's value as determined by a CMA--a competitive market analysis--taking into consideration the house's specific condition and needed repairs, or (2) the monthly mortgage payments you can reasonably afford.

That's the most you should pay. How much under that might you pay? That all depends. Sounds as if the seller might be motivated, if he/she is paying two mortgage payments. It's likely the seller will need at least what he/she paid for the house plus about 10% to cover real estate agent fees and various selling and closing costs.

So now you have a range: The most you should pay and the least the owner is probably willing to accept. Make an offer anywhere in between. Some agents would probably suggest an offer 5% under the adjusted CMA (assuming that's in your affordability range). Others might suggest 10% under. Others, even more.

Check with your agent. Get the CMA. Get his/her advice. Then you decide.

Good luck.
