Utility bills vary according to the size of the house/ apartment, number of people in the household plus how energy efficient the property is.

Hello Jennifer, you're in luck!
We have a 5 acre tract in Cynthiana, not far from the Toyota plant, that already has electric, water and septic system installed. Originally there was a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home on the land, but due to a fire at the residence, the house is no longer there. All utilities remained in tact and are still available. The top portion of the land is flat where the house and driveway were located. The land has a gentle slope and allows for spectacular views! The land is listed at $30K. The sellers are negotiable.

Here is a link to view the listing: The address is 25 Longview Drive, Cynthiana, KY. 41031.

We would be pleased to tell you more if you're interested. You may contact me by cell at 859.983.9597 or by email at
Best wishes,

If you're doing a cash purchase, then you can close as quickly as 1 day. Most likely, you'll have to wait for the seller to wrap up their paperwork before closing, which can take around a week. ... more

Hill Parker answered:
You probably want to start by hiring a buyer's agent. A buyer's agent works for you to help you find appropriate housing and helps you to negotiate the best terms possible. You do not actually pay a buyer's agent. They are paid by the seller of the property. The listing agent splits their fee with the buyer's agent. Especially if you are new to home buyer, find a buyer's agent first. You will also want to contact a couple of banks/ mortgage brokers- very important all on the same day so that you get fair comparisons. You want to compare rates and closing costs. They alos can help you decide what you can and want to borrow so yu know what price range to start your search. If you do not know any agents, the mortgage brokers/ bankers can probably recommend an agent or two. ... more

It really depends on the condition of the house and the neighborhood and the time of year and if it is priced right. If I had a listing, I would want to make sure it was on the market by Feb so that it is ready for the peak buying season (march/april with closings in JUNE and JULY). That my house was declutted and in very clean perfect condition. If you do that then your house will sel quickly.

No, you do not need to add two Realtors to the mix. As long as the two of you can agree on the price and terms, you should probably hire a real estate attorney to put the deal together for the two of you, and save yourself the commission.

Good luck.
