Peter Davies answered:
It appears that it is under agreement as of th 14th of April. I did not view the home, but it seems it was bought by someone who renovates homes and they did a lot to it. It was under agreement before and then came back on the market, it went under agreement quickly both times. I didn't hear of anything wrong with the home, it seemed priced right to sell for a 2 bedroom home. ... more

Ron Carpenito answered:
That's a complicated question, because you need to first determine if the asking price is over, at or below the market value of the home to begin with. Then you need to determine the current status of the local market, and then take into account the days on market and condition of the home as compared to other homes like it...its not a black/white answer.

Currently the markets are on the upswing and we are seeing many many OVER ASKING price offers on new listings, this is a factor of reduced inventory, current low rates, and an overall positive attitude towards real estate going forward.

To sum it, it really depends on the situation and property.

orange line is the most popular T line in JP.
Some areas use the Green E line, but the gren line does not go that far in JP.
Best,

It is against the law to discuss commissions in a forum, with or without the public. Commissions are negotiable. Commercial transactions are different than residential as to fees.


I would be happy to answer your question with you if you would like to contact me.

I wouldnt call it a scam but it is not to the advantage of a buyer. The contracts are far more favorable to the seller

Get preapproved by a reputable mortgage lender (not necessarily a bank) first so that realtors will take you seriously as a buyer. Until then you can use Trulia, Zillow, Redfin to search for available homes. ... more
