Every agent has different experiences, I'll try a Sunday and if no traffic go to Mon or Thurs 4-5:30 and catch people on the way home from work. During the summer there are so many competing events for Sundays (vacations, graduations) and toward end of Aug & Sept there are festivals etc. every week end. Open houses rarely sell a house, but agents like to do them to meet potential buyers. Advertise? if listed, it's going to post on MLS,, truila etc. and many times posted in the paper. Signs r good. Near WPAFB, advertising in the base publications good. I might consider getting some info to the Senior Centers in case there is someone considering downsizing that may be interested. Good luck! ... more

Is this a Townhouse unit? There are many different condo styles in Rona Village, as well as property conditions. Typically HOA fees are included in the rent quotes, but this is something you should confirm with the owner prior to engaging in a lease. The number for the Rona Fairborn association is (937) 878-2360 should you have any questions regarding the common property areas, pool, etc. ... more

Deb, agents and brokers are prohibited from publically discussing their fees. You will probably not get an answer to your question. You should make some individual phone calls to local brokers. ... more

Hi Lynn,

Professional fee ARE negotiable to a degree......and can vary between 5% and 8% for a full service brokerage, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for....for agencies to provide those lower rated, they generally can do so because they are offering fewer services.

Our recommendation is to try to associate with a reputable company with a high degree fo visibility in your local area. Also request a written copy of their comprehensive marketing plan for your home. When entering into a working relationship such as one of this nature, it may be beneficial to have things in writing.

Best wishes,

Would be happy to help you with that house or others if it does not fit what you want when we look at it... My team and I are experienced in working with many buyers interested in bank owned, foreclosures, short sales and other distressed properties and would be happy to assist you with the process.

Buying a distressed property has some advantages and some challenges... You generally get a very good value on the home but there is often some extra work and/or headaches.... we do our best to minimize any problems and certainly have the experience to overcome them if they do come up.

Feel free to call and/or email any questions and we can get started for you.

Thanks and good luck!

Mark Ryan-Mark Ryan Group answered:

Buying bank owned or REO properties is a bit different than other transactions... If you want to give me a call we will walk you through the process and help you make any purchase you like.

Basically it is the same process... make an offer, bank either accepts or counters. Do inspections and appraisal, etc... then move to closing. The difference come in HOW the bank works and the extra forms and contracts they use... There are also other issues like tile issues, utilities etc...

Work with an agent that does this often and they can keep the "problems" to a minimum but with REO properties there are almost always some "bumps in the road"... you get a good deal but with that comes some head ache...

Hope that was some help... that was just a pretty broad question...

Chris Rix answered:
If you can get a good renter that might be a good idea. I have told some of my sellers that might be the program for them. Also, did you over improve your house for the area? It is always best to be in the middle of the neighborhood, not the largest and best or smallest. When remodeling was it for yourself, or was there consideration for what the market would bear in your location upon resale? Also did you buy too high? I have told several clients if they are in doubt they may want to get their own appraisal. You also have to consider the 4 years of work as you relevant is that to moving on to a new chapter in your life with a new home. Do you have the time to deal with a rental for two or three years? Is the rental market good enough in your area to find a tenant that can maintain the rent and pay your mortgage? Good luck.. ... more
