Mkt rate for an LC depends on the buyers qualifications and the sellers motivatin for selling. Basically LC is on a case by case basis. As a side note LC's can be a dangerous arrangement for the buyer and for the seller. Suggest you discuss the pros's and con's with a Realtor experienced with this type of transaction.

OH, we tell them but you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. They own the house so they can tell us what to list it for and sometimes it takes a few set backs for some sellers to see the forest and not just one tree. ... more

Like most areas it's had it's ups and downs. But there are great people living there and community leaders who work to make it better. My advice is find a local Realtor, find some houses that fit what you are looking for in different areas and look around for yourself. You are the best judge. ... more

Not sure how you know it's in foreclosure. I suggest you check the Montgomery County Sheriff's Properties for Sale list (link If it's on this list the owner still has possesion. If it is you can go to the Sheriff sale and purchase, BTW, a risky task, or wait until the bank takes ownership and it is listed. If you need a Realtor to keep an eye out let me know. 937-435-2267 ext 163 ... more

Often times you start with 80% of what you owe the bank as a starting point. However, there are some neighborhoods here in Atlanta that are selling for 25% of what they had sold for only a few years ago. So to give a definative answer is diffucult. The price is what the market will bear. ... more

It's a foreclosure that you don't fight. You just offer the deed to the lender so they don't go through the full foreclosure filing. The impact on your credit is the same, but it starts the clock ticking to recovery sooner.
If you are not finding a buyer start dropping the price regularly. If you owe more than it's worth, do a short sale. Short sales are generally less damaging to your credit and you can continue to live in the house while it's on the market.

Cherry Hill did not sell in the traditional sense. However if you have a strong desire to pursue this particular home please call me. Maybe we can work something out with the owner. There are different paths to take when purchasing. 937-435-2267 x 163

Christine McDaniel answered:
Hi Sarapon,

Are you selling your home by owner? If a buyer is getting financing through a bank the bank will order the appraisal. If you are looking for an appraisal of value that will vary a little from actual sales value. A bank will loan you more money on a home because they look at it as a long term purchase. The appraisal for sales value will be the last 3 months of comparable solds (I don't think they use 6 anymore). If you are flipping the home in under 90 days and need an appraisal for your side of the transaction then ask around. A lender, bank or real estate agent should be able to recommend some appraisers. See whose name comes up most.

Good Luck,

Susan Blanford answered:
The typical market time is governed by how long on average the homes in the area stay on the market where the home is located in which you are inquiring. You should ask your real estate agent to help you determine that information prior to listing your home. Additionally, the market time of the Seller's home is totally dependent upon price, condition and location of the subject home. Homes properly priced for their individual condition and location will sell in a reasonable period of time. If you're just looking, I'm curious to know what is the actual motivation to your question. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
It sounds like the only way you could be in this position is that you bought the house without a Buyer's Agent and without INSPECTIONS!

Why did you do that? Did you save a lot of money?

I am not a lawyer and I will not and can not give you legal advice; but,
You probably bought yourself some trouble.

Good luck and may God bless
