Assuming that you're working with a Realtor, they could walk you through the steps. Once you have determined what you feel comfortable as far as a dollar amount offer, you and your Realtor will fill out a binder, which is used to present a written offer to any seller. If you're not working with a Realtor (I strongly suggest you do), you would pretty much speak to the seller and agree on a price and terms. In either case, after there you guys reach an agreement, it's then put in paper (contract). Good luck!

Dear Michele:

It is definitely possible as long as you are willing to pay the price. If you expectations regarding price are realistic, it can happen. I know some great rental agents in the area, if you want, contact me and I can put you in touch with them. Either way, good luck!

Hi Ellie,

Your budget may be a bit tight for your requirements - although every now and then we all do get surprised with a fabulous yet underpriced unit that hits the market. If I were you, I would have my eyes peeled on units coming available for rent around October 1 if you could extend your move date by then. August 1 and September 1 are still considered the full-fledged rental season.

Good luck in your search!

Aleksandra

Donna answered:
These days, many people are in the 'business' of estimating value, but if you want a well supported, well documented estimate of market value accepted by banks for transactional purposes, you want an appraisal.

And it would be ill- advised of any appraiser to start shooting numbers at you from the hip.

The process involves some time and some real effort, so anyone who wants to give you a relatively firm number from their office chair is not giving you information you should rely on.

Good luck with your endeavor.

You may have a hard time getting a loan for a condo building that has a lot of rental units in it. Talk to your lender to see if the building qualifies for a loan.

Carroll Park is central hub for the stroller set, and toddlers play in the large kiddie park, while older children play baseball, softball, basketball and hockey on the manicured courts. The older set play bocci and chess, or read a book in the shaded bench and table areas. There is also a dog run and lighted baseball stadium where the local youth and community leagues play. ... more

In order to find a property in this neighborhood, it is important to register with a broker who has strong ties in the community. Properties are rarely discounted because of high demand, and condo's are more readily available than the rare brownstones and townhouses. ... more
