Cindy, it could be that Trulia still shows an old MLS number from a previous time on the market as well as a new one. If you aren't sure which one is correct let me know and I will look up for you. ... more

In a word, "Opportunity". The prospect of actually selling your house in Chattanooga is much greater than many parts of the country so more of us are doing it. With the job growth and (relatively) positive economy here home owners are selling their homes in a reasonable time and buying the home they need for their next 10-15 years. It may be that in Overland Park, many people just do not try if their prospect of selling is low.

On a second note, the mild climate in Eastern Tennessee keeps the market moving where most colder climates such as Eastern Kansas close up shop for the bitter Winter.

I know from experience - I grew up in Chattanooga, but lived in the Kansas City area when the KC Chiefs drafted me in 1984.

Only if you act your age.

If you are over 18 and not trying to live in a senior complex, you can't be turned down for your age, BUT you can be turned down for no credit, or lack of credit, or lack of sufficient income, or several other reasons a landlord may invent. So, make sure you look presentable, have a job and proof of income and references with you, and you'll be alright. Worst case, if it's possible, an older family member may have to co-sign the lease with you.

But hurry up and get a place now cause when you're 20 it may get harder.

Peter Van Deusen answered:
Generally, duplex units will demonstrate less pride of ownership than a neighborhood of single family residences. Your question would be a common demonstration of doubt among potential buyers when it is time to sell, thus limiting the pool of sale possibilities. That said, price can cure many things - "buy a bargain, sell a bargain" is an old saying with a lot of truth. You must pay a fair price no matter where you buy or what your neighbors are like. I would be happy to discuss local values, and your potential purchase , if you like. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
There are too many variables, and too many unknown details for anyone to answer this. You can start by providing a property address. What kind of condition is it in? Have any updates been done? Has it been taken care of, or neglected over the years? Find a REALTOR to work for you as a buyer's agent. He/she will be able to research the property, and see what fair market value is. ... more

Call your agent now and have them email, text, call the other agent that you are withdrawing your offer immediately. As long as the seller has not signed the offer, you're fine. Discuss your reasons first with your agent to ensure you are within contractural rights to withdraw....
Good luck,

You can call any local title company or title attorney. They will probably need his death certificate and will if available
