Sorry to hear your having difficulty on something that should be an exciting and positive time in your life. If the seller has signed the contract, you should cantact your attorney and have your attorney send them a letter cancelling the contract and copy everyone involved. As a buyer, you can work with any agent you like and it should be a positive experience. I hope you get it worked out. ... more

REALLY? $35,000 Bank owned property in central NJ?

Check out this site. I found only 5 active listings up to $40K in ALL of NJ.

However, here's a great answer written by Victor Kaminsky with some info on finding REO (real estate owned) properties.

Here's another answer given by CJ with some helpful web sites:

Robert Bruckner answered:
If you are asking if the agent has to bring the seller to you in order to present the offer in your presence, that is not normally how it is done. However, that being said, it doesn't mean that it could not be done. If you would like to be present when your offer is being presented, that is certainly something that I think could be arranged. If the seller is unwilling or unable to meet with you, you may only be able to meet with his or her agent. Again, I am not sure I understand your question. However, if you are not sure whether your agent is helping you properly, simply go to the office and speak with your agent and/or the broker in charge. Typically, the broker of the office can resolve 99% of problems. Good Luck! Robert ... more

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.

Why not simply work with an agent of your own who can provide suitable listings, any necessary information, schedule showings, etc. If purchasing with a mortgage be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

What's the condition of your unit? Which floor is it on? Is your unit bigger or smaller square footage-wise? What's your maintenance fee? Details would be helpful.

Absolutely yes. I would recommend that you hire independent termite inspector to check if the treatment was done correctly and there is no evidence of WDI (wood-destroying insects).

I can recommend you speak to Sue Becker of Home Capital Network. (I just spoke to her) You can email her at or call her at 908-723-1180. Just spoke to her and though they do co-op loans, there are not many options out there.

Let me know how it works out :)

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Read the lease carefully, first and foremost. Take pictures and make notes of anything that is in the least bit damaged. Be aware of what other properties are renting for so that you don't over pay. Look for penalties for breaking the lease so you know exactly what you will be expected to do and pay in the event you cannot complete the lease term. Look for extra 'pet fees' and 'cleaning fees'. Find out if there is any kind of association fee and who pays for it. Are there any amenities, such as lake access if you are in a lake community or tennis courts, etc, if you are in a townhome community. Be sure you know what utilities you are responsible for. If it's a single family home, will you be paying for lawn maintenance and (in my area anyway), snow removal. What about water, sewer and trash removal.

Any of the items mentioned in the previous paragraph can be used to negotiate. It's the big picture, the more you have to pay for pet fees, utilities and maintenance, the less you can afford to pay for monthly rent. If you can, consider signing a two year lease in exchange for a reduction in monthly rent. I have found that very effective. If not monthly rent, then perhaps in the security deposit or any realtors' fee you are asked to pay.

Finally, if you have pets there are some creative ways to convince a landlord to accept your pet or at least to keep the rent reasonable if they do. For example, I wrote a lease once that said, if the tenants failed to 'clean up' after their dog twice a week the landlord had the right to hire a doggie clean up company and deduct the cost from their security deposit. You can also offer to have the unit professionally cleaned at the end of your time there. If you have your dog professionally groomed, show the receipts to the landlord so they can see you are a responsible pet owner. Same with veterinary records.

In rentals as in all real estate, everything is negotiable.
