If you're referring to the Terrasol subdivision in Lilburn off of Five Forks, Lee, it is a well designed HOA neighborhood with Club House, Lighted Tennis Courts and Swimming Pool in the Brookwood High School district. It also offers wildlife trails with Yellow River Views, 30+ Acres dedicated to green space and was originally built to support $500+ K homes, IIRC. Please call, text or email if we can provide further assistance. Good Luck!

Hi Jamil,
Real estate agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a real estate agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
- Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
- Demographics
- Environmental Concerns
- Household Income
- Religion
- Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)


Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a real estate agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:
www.crimereports.com
www.familywatchdog.us/
www.neighborhoodscout.com
www.greatschools.org/
www.schoolmatters.com

The lender would have to approve any change to the loan, it is doubtful that they would but it would be up to them.

Tranche. Email me your questions at jmsteele57@gmail.com. Maybe I can help. As far as getting a list of buyers, that's going to be tough without a buyer's brokerage agreement.

Hank Miller answered:
and the agents recommend....?

Over 48 hours I do an amendment and typically the cost is what the buyer would be paying - as it's their home at this point. A security deposit is also customary for this length.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
I have not heard of a buyer paying a fee to have a use and occupancy agreement put into place. As far as I know there is no customary charge or commmission for this. A fair 'rent' would be an amount of money such that the current owner would not have any costs during the transition, so the sum of his property taxes, mortgage payment per diem, water usage, and so on. You will be able to negotiate that amount somewhat but make sure at the very least that it costs the owner nothing to allow you to move in early. ... more

Steven Betolatti answered:
It is called a temporary occupancy agreement for buyer prior to closing exhibit. Basically it states that you will gain access to the property you are purchasing prior to the closing date.
The other option is a temporary occupancy agreement for seller after closing exhibit. This one states that the seller will continue to have access to the property after closing for x amount of days. This one is tricky because it could be misconstrued as a lease back and the buyer’s lender may not approve it.
Remember, disclose…disclose…disclose. Everyone involved must be aware of the agreement.

Hi Sayury,

Normally if you want to pay cash pay all cash upfront and do not do make payments. Is this what you are asking or am I miss understanding your question?

Michael Hammond answered:
According to FMLS, Sairam, there are two actives in Nash Lee Estates, and four solds-only two of which were advertised as foreclosures-in the past year. For the size of the neighborhood, my opinion is that's not out of the ordinary. Like almost all metro communities, some folks bit off more than they could chew in their home purchases the past few years. I can think of one other Lilburn S/D that has a cemetary within the boundary of the neighborhood and that has done little or nothing in affecting home values and/or foreclosures. Please email or call if we may help further.

Good Luck!

Jonathon Steele answered:
Sairam-
That depends on your zoning requirements in your neighborhood. The county issues zoning conditions on all real estate, which requires homes to have setbacks. You can go up to the courthouse and pull the plat on your subdivision to see what the setback/ build line restrictions are. There are other factors as well which could be easements such as utility, drainage, etc. or even non build buffers if there are streams. We are remodelers and would love you to check us out at www.wendovercommunities.com to see our work. Let me know if you need our assistance to find the info that you need. ... more

The home appears to be Estate Owned and sits on 3+ acres. The home is only a 2/1 so I would assume at $279K, they are putting a lot of value on the lot.

Freddy Saxton answered:
You mention 'appraised' and 'assessed' in the same sentence, but in reality these are two very different things. Last year you say it appraised at $279,000 which I'm guessing was done by your bank at the time you purchased the home? This is done only for the bank's sake, as a way for them to ensure that if you don't make your payments they can sell the home and get their money back. The 'tax assessor' is a completely different person, and is in no way related to the appraiser who came out for the bank. It is not surprising to hear of the large discrepancy between the appraisal and assessed value- you should call your city or county (whoever sends out the tax bill) and ask them how to go about contesting the assessed value. You might have a good case to cause them to lower the amount considering the amount is nearly 200K above your purchase price. ... more
