Your realtor can ask but its doubtful a bank will pay much at all in closing costs, it all depends on the bank. I just had one that paid 1% of the sale price but that was a national bank.

Good luck

In the last 6 months 61 homes have sold between $95,000 and $110,000. The average home sold for 96% of its asking price. 13 of these homes sold at or above asking price. The average Days on Market was 161 days from the current listing date.

Currently there are 91 homes on the market in this same price range. Last year, another 46 homes sold between 8-19-11 and 2-19-12. With this years market being substantially above lastt years sales you could expect another 60 homes to sell in the same time period this year.

As with any segment of of the Real Estate market, The best of the best sell quickly and at a good price. The rest drag the market down and don't sell or will sell at a reduced price.

I guess you could say that the Real Estate market is alive and well in Appleton!

There are many condos in the Fox Valley under $150,000. If you would like me to set up a listing cart for you that will add them for you to review, let me know.

It really depends on the house. The best indicator of the value of real estate is based on recent sales of comparable properties. Do you have an Agent? A REALTOR can help you to answer these questions. Some other things to take into consideration: How old is the appraisal? When was the last time the municipality assessed the Property? Hope this helps! ... more

The commission is paid by the seller. The seller contracts with an agent for a certain amount and part of that amount is offered as a "co-broke". The co-broke is the agent who brings the buyer. Your best bet is to interview a minimum of three agents and find a good fit for your needs and personality. If this is your first home, you will want someone who specialized in first-time home buyers. There are many challenges that arise with first-time home buyers and you will need an agent that is both knowledgeable and patient in this area.

Once you choose an agent, don't be afraid to sign a buyer agency. This will ensure that you are committed to that agent and therefore they will be committed to you.

No, Just use a buyers agent. It is a free service and that assures you that the agent is working for you and not the sellers. If you would like help please contact me @ 920-716-8322. I would be happy to assist you in finding the perfect home. : )

It is to late for the credit. The purchase agreement had to be signed by 4-30-2010. It has to be closed by 6-30-2010.

p.s. please do not use all caps. It is considered rude and hard to read. ... more

In our mls there is a box where an agent can indicate whether the seller is willing to finance the sale of their home. Contact a realtor to provide you with a list of those homes that match your needs.

Also, check out ads in the newspaper, Craigslist, FSBO and other sites. Sellers who are offering this option will certainly include it in their ads.

Some sellers are willing to do it, but don't want to make it a first option. If you like a house, ask your agent to inquire on the possibility for that house.

Good Luck,

Hi Dennis,

I is just for first time buyers.

If your girlfriend buys the house alone, then she can take the credit if she meets the income limits.

For more details, check with your accountant or your Congressperson's office. ... more
