Second mortgage holder already has a position on the home at the time the borrower took out the loan. As to Bankruptcy the seller will no longer need a short and it stalls the foreclosure, as a plan will be presented to the court that will outline the owners obiligations and how they will be taken care of, that once agreed on by the creditors will take effect including the home.

Good luck

I am a very active agent in Falmouth and I am surprised you are seeing high crime rates there. That being said, everyone's definition of 'high' is different. What websites are you using to do your research? You can use Neighborhood Scout as one example.

I would suggest calling local police departments to ascertain what the crime rates are in the area of Falmouth you are looking at.

There are certain areas in falmouth that may rate poorly compared to the others. Like any good sized town, there are neighborhoods that are safer than others. Although, there is much beauty and it is a great place to live, Cape Cod is not immune to the ills of society.

You should contact a local Realtor when you are getting ready. The best thing to do is create a list of your desired details of both home and location, then drive the areas. You will be able to discern the better neighborhoods yourself and if still concerned, then talk to the police department about the locations.

We have some listings in Falmouth if you want more info.

Good luck.

Plume disclosures are a frightful thing to have to sign when purchasing a home. Honestly you should have been made aware of this prior to the offer, but good thing you were at least made aware. You have the right to be concerned,especially when it comes to resale. Best site for checking this out is http://www.mmr.org. When it comes to planting a garden, honestly I would be more worried with the use of chemicals in our soil from fertilizers and pesticides before the base would worry me. The base contamination has mainly effected ground water and these homes have since been put on town water. You're smart to ask these questions and I would suggest looking long and hard where you are buying. Real Estate and resale "location " location" location". Hope I helped.

Hello,
Yes, I would think that expanding your master bedroom and bath would increase the value of your home and make it more attractive if you choose to resell your home in the future. Buyers look for updated kitchens, baths, and master bedrooms. Not only will you increase the value but you also would make your home more enjoyable to live in currently.
I hope this is helpful.
Good Luck!

Kendall Sims answered:
In the state of New Jersey, commissions are negotiable between the seller and agent. In the current market characterized by excess inventory, agents are using the commission compensation to distinguish their listings. Since most properties are not sold by the listing agent but by a cooperating agent from a different brokerage, a larger commission can result in greater compensation to the cooperating agent by a larger commission split. Accordingly, most agents I know of are asking 6%, but 7% or even 8% is not unheard of. A listing priced at 5% is disadvantaged in the current market relative to comparable inventory.

As to the second part of your question, Agnes, I am unclear what you mean. Most agents work with both buyers and sellers, the notable exception being buyer-only brokers such as Buyer's Only.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions, although I must note that I can only advise you of real estate practice in New Jersey. A Massachusetts broker would be better situated to guide you in the peculiarities of real estate practice in Cape Cod.
