When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

You are running up against a condo requirement where any one entity may not own more than 10% of the units in the project. This will come up with most lenders --- not only Chase. If you really like the place and wish to make the effort to find a lender, now you are armed with the information you need and you should start your process with them there. Otherwise, it may be easier for you to begin your search for a different property.

Best of luck,

Rob Spinosa

Maritza - there is no "average" standard, regular, or normal commission (anywhere in the country... New York, or elsewhere)... commissions are negotiable.

That doesn't mean each and every agent will negotiate his/her commission, simply that different agents, and different agencies may be willing to charge different rates (often for diverse services).

Ask around.. it surely possible that 6% is the lowest that your Realtor is willing to charge, but that doesn't mean that another Realtor in your community wouldn't be willing to list your home for less.

Good luck.

While the market leans towards 2-3 bedroom units, you will do fine in 5 years if your property is priced according to market trends at that time.

The Banks and the Gov. have created sites to provide the public with access to their properties for sale listings..(REO/Foreclosures) and information on the Bid/Purchase process. I would suggest looking at the info provided to help you have questions to ask during the agent interview process. You are hiring the services of someone to assist you in a large financial commitment and the process of that selection deserves your time and effort in becoming informed.

Sites like.... .... ...

The links to these Bank and Gov. sites can be found here.... ..

I would also like to suggest you read this Blog put together by Rockinblu (another member of Trulia) as I believe it contains excellent advice about selecting an agent.

who told you that? was is your current lender? if so they probably just want you to refi with them. i just did one with chase and we had a very tough time but we got it done and they were VERY resistance to the CEMA.

you save so much money that in my opinion you should force the issue.

if your interested i could look at the file and see what can be done.

good luck.
