depending on the type of residential property you are looking at prices per sq. ft can range anywhere from $100 per sq ft to over $250 per sq ft. Given the recent economic problems across the US, there is a limited mount of brand bew construction. New construction has tended to be aimed at the higher priced market. ... more

Hi T. Tuscan Villas were built in 2008. There is a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath with 1,400 living sq. ft. unit available now for $110k. It has ceramic tile downstairs, newer appliances and large bedrooms. It may even be pet friendly as the listing doesn't indicate any restrictions. I'm waiting for a return call from the agent to see if this is true. If you have any flexibility on your search criteria that will open up other possibilities for you.

Please let me know if I can be of further help to you.

Happy Holidays,

Hi Heather. If you are gainfully employed in PA then I would try to find a job in FL before you sell your home and relocate. I think it's too risky to move somewhere before you are more settled with a job. Plus, if you are financing your next home a lender will want to see how you will be able to afford your next mortgage.

When you are ready to move please give me a call and I will help you find a home you will love - 561-445-8743.

Happy Holidays,

You should contact a lender now to make sure your credit, debt to income ratio, and income meet the underwriter's requirements. The lender will also take into account the property taxes, insurance, and hoa into your monthly payment to make sure the underwriter is happy with your monthly debt.

If you are considering moving in March, you might want to look now. If you find a property that you like that happens to be a short sale, it could take months to get it processed and approved.

Good Luck!

Since no link is visible, either directly contact the listing agent, or any local agent/realty office can also help you, they all have access to the same information; so not to receive unwanted calls, you may wish to remove your contact number. ... more

When buying a home you need good or better credit. Associations do not come into play until you purchased your home. A great score of 640 and above can get you started. There are other requirements that you must meet to satisfy the lenders. Your local real estate professional can guide you in the process of getting pre-approval and selecting the right home for you. But always remember to read the contracts and no your warranty information. Best Regards, ... more

Yes, they have many different plans and it also depends upon which HOA within the community. I've added the link below to Aberdeen's Membership page on their web site.

From a Realtor.

You seem to be mixing two related but separate items: Comps and days on market.

Days on market is affected by price. Example: Let's say the average comps for a type of property is $100,000. And let's say that the average days on market for those properties was 60 days. OK. That's a start. But you also might want to know: "If I want an offer in 30 days, where should I price my home?" And that answer might be $96,000, $90,000, or some other number. On the other hand, you might ask: "If I price my home at $110,000, do I have a chance of selling at all? If so, how long might it take?"

There are a number of public sites that do list days on market. But matching that information up with properties that have sold recently, and those days on market, is difficult if not impossible. On top of that, the public information won't provide some essential numbers--such as any seller concessions in the transaction.

To come up with solid numbers, you need to be working with a Realtor.

Both are desirable communities and will be for some time to come in West Boynton. A lot depends upon if you're buying a re-sale or new construction and what type of deal you are getting. I live across the street in Cobblestone Creek and know both communities very well.

Hi kathy,
Both communities are gated and both are in great areas.
Boynton landings is in the heart of the new Boynton Beach redevelopement area. It is walking distance to over 20 restaurants, clothing stores, and the Boynton Beach Mall. Bent Tree is west a little more, driving distance is 5 minutes to all major shopping. Both complexes appear to be well maintained. Most all patios in Bent Tree face the parking lot but the units are very spacious and bright and are all 2/2. Boynton landings has a large variety of units large & small, has a lake and units with garden views as well. Boynton landings is a condo conversion. Check with the local police dept and internet sites for safty issues.

Just to clarify, a townhome is 2 stories. 55+ communities are either single family homes or condominiums. Many of the communities go by weight. What is the weight of your dogs?

Hello Seymour,

Take advantage of this market and buy the absolute most house that you can afford. It will pay off later when the market turns around. Just please hire a Buyer's Agent to assist you and look out for your interests. Search Trulia for a Realtor that works in those areas. ... more
