I'm sure someone from Trulia will reply to your question as well--in the meantime, you may want to contact your agent and ask him/her to ask the listing agent to remove it--It does show as closed on MLS, by the way. ... more

If you put down less than 20% then PMI is due no matter what the house appraisers for. If the selling price is renegotiated you will still pay PMI if you are still putting down less than 20%. Ask your mortgage broker about piggy back mortgages to avoid PMI. ... more

Centerport has a small strip of shops opposite the Crescent Club Golf Course. It consists of a pizza place, a stationary store, and i local watering hole. Northport has a "Downtown" similar in appearance to Sag Harbor. Check out the photos I have on my web site and click on "Neighborhoods". You will see the harbor of Centerport which is quite fine, but most people head over to Huntington's "Village" or Northport. ... more

Unfortunately we as Realtors cannot discuss any particular town as being best or worst for that matter in regards to renting or buying . You can start however by looking at, or feel free to contact me if you need assistance.

There are many ways you can work this out, given the fact that you have open communication with your relative. Renting to buy is a great way, with a percentagve of your rent used to build up a deposit going towards the purchase of the property. There are also ways to gift equity, but you should really use the professional help of an accountant and lawyer in this matter once you have worked out the fact your inlaws want to make this happen.

If you want to expand on any of the above thoughts, please contact me at your convenience.

Very truly yours,

Heather Jackson answered:
The home inspection generally takes place after an offer is made by the buyer to the seller and they come to terms making it an executed contract. Then the buyer pays to have a home inspection done to find out if in fact there are any problems with the home. I'm not sure I understand what you mean about getting a "credit" back. If you find problems with the house and you choose to move forward with the purchase then you can go back to the seller and ask them either to repair the problems or issue you a credit at closing. Your only other option, is to walk away from the contract and at that point, you will not be reimbursed by the seller for the inspection costs.

Hope that helps!

If you need any assistance, it would be my pleasure to provide it. Contact me at for any further local information.

Franklin Blacker answered:
Well over 50, plus another 12 that were sold earlier and closed within the past 12 months. I would suggest asking your agent a question as to what they would suggest as to how you can have your home looked at. Open Houses, in my opinion, is just a tool to have buyers come to look at your home at their convenience. Price, location and marketing are the three key indicators that your agent, I am sure, has informed you of. Give your agent every opportunity to be of help, and not necessarily in a defensive vs. offensive posture. ... more

You first need to get a new brokers price oppinion that will show you what similar properties are selling for in your area. What your neighbors are listed for may not be realistic as they may all be way high. you need to see what has sold. Once you know if your house is priced correctly make sure your house is being advertised each and every week, ask where and when. In addition you should make sure your agent is offering a 50/50 cobroke to buyers agents to spur them to bring buyers to your house. I wish you luck with yoru sale. ... more

Cori Kaplan answered:
Homes in Huntington usually sell between 1-5% off the listing price. I know it is hard to believe in this buyer's market that there are actually bidding wars but when a home is priced well this often happens.

You should think about hiring a broker that is a buyer's agent and represents you not the seller. If you have any other questions, please feel free to call me directly, 516-375-9313.

Hi Carlos,

The answer depends what you are trying to do.

If you are trying to have them take over your mortgage payments. It can be done if your lender allows assumption of your mortgage. Your lender can tell you if your loan allows this.

If you are trying to have this individual be your new lender. This can be done by having them payoff your existing loan. You can then make payments to this individual instead of your bank.

Please fell free to call me directly if you have any questions,631-944-8829.
