The Buyer can PROPOSE anything, including partial or total Seller financing;
It would be advisable to have a Realtor help you draft it; there are just too many rules and reg's, as well as many pitfalls.

Good luck and may God bless

Why would you need sales info from 3 years ago. I hope my guess is not correct, so tell us why you would be interested in 3 year old sales data.

Good Morning Renee,

The average realtor fees to sell your home pretty much anywhere in the US start at 6%. From here everything is negotiable in today's world. This will get you a full service listing agent who will handle everything from marketing your property(hopefully using today's technology) to negotiating a selling price to assisting you every step of the way through closing and beyond.

If you are looking to buy a home, there is generally no realtor fee associated with buying a home. The buyer agent commission is paid out of the total commission due from the seller.

As with anything else, I am sure you would be able to find agents that are willing to cut their commission in order to get the listing, but beware and make sure you know all of the services that you will be getting for your money.

Best of Luck and let me know if you need any additional assistance.

Yes, it is a 35% reduction of your assessment/tax obligation.

This comment was received from the lincoln town tax accessor. Essentiallly, take your property assessment and multiply by 65% and that is your tax for a owner occupied resident of Lincon. Should you have any other question about home buying in lincoln or the surrounding area, call me at 401-829-0318.

This is a very good question!!!

I asked the same question years ago and an attorney told me that the most important thing to know and remember is the person who signs and dates the contract last starts the effective date of the contract.

It is amazing how few people are aware of this, especially in contract situations where there is a dispute. Another great tip is to make sure that when you strike out (use one line only) anything in a contract have all parties initial and date. If clean contracts need to be created, always keep the original contract for future reference.

Great question!

I assume you are saying you want to pay full list price for the home. No matter how much you pay for the home, it still takes 1-3 months. I would suggest that you get in contact with an agent where you live. You have until April 30 to get it under contract to get the tax credit. Make sure you are approved by a lender though. It does speed the purchase. Good luck. If you are ever out this way in Idaho, Please contact me, Cheryl Hofhines-Morgan, Associate Broker, EXIT REALTY of Treasure Valley, Meridian Idaho 208/407-5174. ... more

Hi Issy50,

If you are doing the work yourself, the easiest most reliable resource will be the Town of Lincoln. If you are looking for someone else to pull the comps together for you then your best resource will be a real estate agent.

I have easy access to public records for almost any town in RI and MA and can put this together for you.

Happy Hunting,
