Anna M Brocco answered:
Rather than looking for the agent with the most listings, consider interviewing in person a few local agents from different realty companies, and then choose the one you like you like best; just because an agent may have the most listings, doesn't necessarily mean he/she will get the job done to your liking, nor be a good fit for you...choose your agent with care..... ... more

Mike Walker answered:
That's a great question. Sometimes allowances work but oftentimes they don't. It is hard to change first impressions - so, if you can minimize any objections your home has, you improve your chances of selling quicker and for a higher dollar amount. $3500 is not pocket change either, so you have to look at whether that investment will help your home sell quicker and will you be able to recoup that investment. Alternately you can adjust the price of the home or consider carpet (just be sure to let new buyer know of the the condition of the hardwood floors).

I would definitely be interested, but it would really depend where the properties are located in West Akron.

By the way, I forgot to mention that renting out is not allowed in the by-laws of the development.

RN anyone home?
The market has shifted.
My suggestion is not to take my word for it. Please consult with your REALTOR.
Most markets are buyer's markets. We ALL need to become accustomed to dealing with FHA...unless you'd prefer not to sell.

Just my opinion. (Disciiamer).

It should go on right away. Make sure you're looking at the right MLS site. One of my sellers got really mad at me for not putting their home on the MLS, turned out they were looking at the wrong site. ... more

Curtis Darragh answered:
Jason, FHA will never lend on this house (how's that saying go.... never say never), except for an FHA 203k rehab loan. FHA's traditional, 3% down loan requires the home be in move in condition and a special FHA appraisal is required. So the property would only qualify for a FHA 203k loan which is meant for properties requiring renovation. They cost a lot more and take a long time to process but they are an option. Best of luck. ... more

Jim Johnson answered:
If you list with a REALTOR member of the MLS, you will have every successful agent selling for you. An agent can make a difference, but the fact that they sold more condos than another may have less to do with their competence than with the fact that they got a lot of condo referrals or focus their prospecting efforts on getting condo listings. ... more

Linda answered:
I agree with you! It sounds like the things you mentioned are relatively low cost cosmetic fixes. Whatever you can do to make the house look updated and move in ready will help attract more potential buyers. Of course, price is key as well. ... more
