Absolutely. I will always take back-up offers on listings. There are many things that could change during the process. Do you have an agent or need help in writing a back-up offer?

I would need to know what is in the contract, but ultimately it is sounds like you are pretty early in the game and should be fine. It just depends on how the current company responds. If you are honest and upfront I don't see why they would not grant your wishes.

Yes, but the schedules vary, depending on your point of origination and destination. There are express busses to both Minneapolis and St. Paul and there may be some options for connecting to the current and coming light rail systems. Call or look on the website for the city, for the metropilian council and public transit should be listed. Liz 612-986-4105 ... more

You will need certain property preservation and clean out supplies once you do get jobs. PP materials carries a large selection for a great price. I would recommend checking them out. Good Luck. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
You are going to have to identify the property so that someone knows what you are talking about.

Normally, the monthly payment will include PITI, which is Principle, Interest, Taxes and Insurance;
This is called IMPOUNDS and the Lender's way of making sure that you pay your taxes and have insurance on the house. It is a good way to go.

You are going to have to work with a local Realtor for the other questions.

Good luck and may God bless

Tina Lam answered:
The answer depends on how handy you are. Usually, the cost to finish a basement is not returned upon resale, unless you can keep the cost low by doing it yourself. Otherwise, if you can convert the basement into a separate rental unit, that would add enough value to justify finishing the basement. ... more

Single family homes with a price range of 210 to 310,000 have the shortest time of 65 days (apparently a shortage of homes within that price range).
