Good evening,
PENDING means that an offer has been accepted on a home and is now pending a clear to close on or before the closing date written in the contract.

If you are looking for a Realtor® to help you in the home buying process or would just like to talk with me about the home buying process with no obligation, I would be happy to consult with you. You can reach me on any of my cell phone numbers listed below. Hope this answered your question. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you

Your best bet is to contact a local agent who can provide accurate info from the MLS.

The best ways I know to evaluate a builder are:
1. Ask an experienced Realtor what their opinion of this builder's quality is. (Use an independent Realtor, not someone afiliated with this builder, obviously)
2. Ask people in the area who may have experience with a particular builder. Is he easy to work with, does he deliver on time, does he work on the crew or subcontract it all out.
3. Go look at a few examples of his work. Often times you can go to a model home. Look in the basement (if there is one) at the way the home is built, the quality of construction and materials used. Bring someone with you who has some knowledge of how homes are built
4. Look at the finish work, do the moldings match up, are the doors & windows hung straight & true, walls plumb, are there extras included, are the appliances top of the line or middle grade, are there services available nearby, (health care, parks, shopping), is the school district good, how are the houses holding up over time, what about the resale values. There are all things to consider.

Call a local realtor to do a CMA for you based on mm/2005 value.

They will be able to provide you with a written report for your records.

Best of luck

Sean Dougherty answered:
What I would do first is ask your agent to contact the agents of all of the potential buyers and ask them specifically what turned off the buyers from the home. Your agent should be doing this anyway so you can get the best idea of what may need to be changed, replaced, or removed. If your agent won't make these calls, you should consider a new agent. The best reflection of what buyers want is their open and honest feedback.

Other than that, it really depends on the cabinets that are there now. If they've been painted over, maybe you should consider sanding them down and refinishing them yourselves, as it would save you a bunch of money. If not, and they're just old or unsalvageable, maybe you should consider replacing them.

Best of luck to you!
