The condo fee is listed at $109/month in the MLS. BUT, it's under contract contingent to financing and inspection.

Hi Ginson,

I have been contacted by a company out in California, ( Sorry I don't have their name or number) that for a fee they can do that on your FB business page using widgets. It's actually very good but I did not subscribe because it all hinges on driving folks on FB to your FB business page. It would save a step for home buyers if it was possible to drive folks to your FB business page to do home searches instead of getting them to your FB page and then trying to drive them to your web site to do searches.

I asked if they had permission from FB to do this and they told me yes but I think a little more research is needed. As I understand it FB maintains proprietary rights to anything posted to their site and FB has been known to completely shut down a page if it feels it is breaking the rules.

All the best,
Jeffrey Paeltz

It always does on the weekend or holidays. The HUD office is closed and unable to accept bids. Your agent will know tomorrow if you we're the highest bidder.

Teresa one thing that I would like to add is that the property has to be available under the GNND program. Not all HUD homes are in fact in our area there are very few. You need to get in touch with a registered HUD Realtor® in your area. If you need help in finding one let me know. ... more

Hi Usha,

The short answer is yes, I can assist you with locating, screening potential problems, researching to make sure your not paying too much, help with paper work and contracts and negotiating. I do not charge any fees, my commissin is paid from the seller. But first you need to get qualified for a loan. Until you know how much you can qualify for you wont know how much home you can afford.

Give me a call at 614.288.0423 or send me an email at and lets get started today. Buying a home is an exciting time and I can help to reduce the worries and concerns that you have with buying your first home.

Jerry Seabrooks answered:
The answer to your question isn't as cut and dry as that. While there are several great builders in the area, there are many things to look at with regard to "the best builders" . Since not every builder is providing the same product as the next it is important to have a good realtor to help you navigate the many builders and find the one that best fits your current needs.

PLease feel free to contact me for assistance in locating the builder that best suits your needs.

If it were me, I would go to the county and see what they have- are they sending tax notices to the address? to the lender? forwarding to the owner/previous owner? At some point regardless of whoever does or doesn't claim they currently own the property it will go to auction for delinquent taxes. If there are no delinquent taxes then it circles back to who is paying the taxes and follow the trail of that address/contact info ... more
