Can't see why you ae not talking with lenders to ask if they can do a refi for you, it sounds like you can. You just need to start the process and speak to some lenders. It will all depend on the appraisal in todays market. ... more

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Willie Craig Jr answered:
A seasoned real estate professional who is familiar with your area (Milton) can give you an estimate of value without a charge. The key word being estimate typically called a comparison market analysis (CMA). My suggestion is do not settle for just one. Shop your agent and consider the explanation of their CMA to make your decision on who to use and the price to list your home.

I would be happy to help you in preparation to sell your home.

On Trulia, select the property on Lucy Street in which you have interest.
Scroll down to the map panel.
The fourth tab over is labeled 'CRIME."
Give that a look.

If you want data with greater granularity, you should contact a local real estate professional and they can provide you references or resources that will prove more relevant.

Best of success in finding your new home,

Here is a link that provides more information on the elementary schools in Pace.

You can also access information on all area schools at

School reviews, rankings and contact information are all included.

I encourage my buyers and rental clients to call the schools directly and speak with administration regarding the various programs that may be of interest to them and their child/children. Many times, you can schedule an appointment to tour the school, and meet the administrators and teachers that will be teaching your child.

Best Wishes to you in your home search and please contact me if I can assist you further! :)

Ron Thomas answered:
How an Appraisal is made:
Visualize a series of COLUMNS, probably 4 or 5;
The First Column is the SUBJECT HOUSE and the others are COMP's.
Down the page we list FEATURES or FACTORS; such as # Bedrooms, # Baths, House Sqft, Lot Sqft, Fireplace, Pool, Roof, Garage, Fencing. Got it?
Now, in each box created, there will be a VALUE: Lets say the subject house is 915 sqft it would get --- or 0. And the first Comp house has 2500 sqft, it might get -100,000; which means that the house is WORTH $100,000 more because of the square-footage. (It is a negative number because the Selling price of that Comp house was approximately $100,000 more BECAUSE of the square footage and we have to deduct that $100,000 to bring them to equity.) Got it?

Now, lets say that the Subject house has $5,000 worth of new fencing and the Comp house has 25 year old OK fencing.: Then the SUBJECT house would get +5,000 and the Comp. house would get --- or 0.

When you go down the page, and enter everything, you get total Comparative Values on the two houses, which allows for the DIFFERENCES.

The two houses DO NOT have to be literally COMPARABLE, they MAKE then comparable with the VALUES.

So the house next door is larger, so what? They made up for that with the values.

Now, if you understand what I just did, then you will understand why;
1.) Two Appraisals can come so close together, and,
2.) Why the Bank will not listen to you about the results.

and in fact I will give you a third;

3.) If you hire your own Appraiser, he will end up with about the same numbers!

Also, please do not compare/equate the ASSESSMENT with the APPRAISAL: The ASSESSMENT is based on the LAST SELLING PRICE OF THE PROPERTY which might be last year. five years ago, or thirty years ago.

I hope I've helped.

Good luck and may God bless

Scott Nowling answered:

Generally attorneys and agents are hesitant to extend occupancy for the seller beyond closing. It introduces complexity and uncertainty for the buyer. What happens if you close, the seller gets your cash and then refuses to leave? What if they leave but damage the property before they go? What if they encumber the property in some way? All of these can be avoided with possession at closing. That said, many deals are done with a post-closing possession date. Unless you anticipate a long-term leaseback arrangement, the length of time from closing to possession should be short.

Closing can be really quick for a cash sale to an eternity for a short sale. It really depends on the complexity of the sale and every one is different. Cash deal ~2 weeks, conventional loan ~45 days, short sale ~who knows.

Pastor Douglas W. Gatton:

I don't see a particular property that you are referring to; I suggest that you contact a few agents/brokers in 32583 - Pensacola area and ask for exactly what you are seeking. Certainly- there will be options available- it just may take some searching.
