Hi Marc
TODAY - if your selling it needs to be marketing now, rates are still low. When can I view it
and bring you a CMA. Please contact me directly so I can prepare some reports for you
and set up an appointment.
Looking forward to meeting you real soon.

It would depend entirely on the type of financing you were able to get. Downpayments range from zero% (VA Loans) to 3.5% (FHA), most conventional loans want 10%-20%. You would need to talk to a loan officer to get prequalified and see where you fit into the spectrum. Hope this helps. ... more

You want someone that is going to look after your best interest not there's! Someone that is going to treat you like a million dollar client regardless of of how much your spending. You want to work with someone that is patient but also a go getter, someone that has great skills at negotiating and has an eye to know what you the buyer wants!

Yes, get a Buyers Agent or ABR(Accredited Buyer Representative) but of course "see" the units forst and compare with that agent first before making any offers. The Agent will show you comparables to help guide you to a proper decision. Best of Luck! ... more

You may want to contact the city inspections and permits department as they'll best be able to address your situation as that can handled very differently depending on the specific location of the property. ... more

Asking Price is always just that...the asking price. As a buyer, you can't always know why someone is selling and how motivated they are. So, a buyer could always make an offer. However, understand that other buyers may be making offers too. The trick is to find the balance between getting a good value and actually getting the house. My experience in this market has been that when a home that is a good value hits the market, it goes fast. And value is also tied to condition, location, utility, etc. as well as price. So, in theory it is always negotiable, that is of course unless the seller doesn't have to negotiate, or doesn't want to. The key is finding a good buyer's agent that knows how to get the right information and guide you accordingly so you get what you want. Hope that helps. ... more

If the contract is accepted and bound, and you feel like you are getting the house you want at the price you offered, I'd be thrilled if I were in your shoes.
