Yes, it can be a drawback in the State of Wisconsin. However, I have lived in a no-basement home since 1985 and I do not miss the basement at all. You have plenty of square footage and storage, so I'm assuming that for you, it won't be a problem.

My home is not on a slab either. I think the important things to look at are the age of the home. What does the floor currently look like? Are they uneven? Are they heated?

Mechanical differences vary from home to home without basements in this area. Some have the plumbing running through the walls and some are below the home and some actually run through the floor. It might be important for you to try to obtain the original plans or perhaps a neighbor to gain further details on this particular home. Make sure you get a qualified home inspector and don't over pay. You said, "it seems to be worth the asking price." If you have a Buyer's Agent ask them to do a market analysis for you to make sure you are not overpaying.

Go to and put in the address. If it's listed on the MLS, it will be there for you. If you have a smart phone, just go to this site to get a mobile app that will give you any listing in your local MLS

It is perfectly fine to interview several agents and if part of that interview consists of a walk through of your home (if that is what you are referring to) and you are telling them that you are interviewing several agents, there should not be a problem.

If you are referring to going through a home to purchase, you would need to check with your real estate board for your state and ask them about agency. Once you get a good understanding of that, you will be able to decide whether or not it is "ethical".

Neenah overall is a very desirable area, but it all depends on your budget and needs. Neenah has many great areas to live but keep in mind that the city of Neenah and the town of Neenah both have different real estate tax rates. If you would like more assistance, I would be happy to assist you.

While no one really knows what interest rates will do, I personally believe that they will hover in the low to mid 6% range for the next 6 months. The rate you may actually get depends a lot on your situation and credit score. The better credit you have, the lower rate you will receive. I do not personally believe that by waiting you will get a lower interest rate, and they might actually go up.
As far as whether or not you should buy right now, a lot depends on the real estate market in your particular area. All real estate is local, and some markets are very hot and some are very cold right now. You should talk to a local professional about what is happening in your area. If you are planning to live in the same place for 3 or more years, and you have decent credit, in general, now is a great time to buy.

You bring up a great question. The answer with interest rates is yet to be answered. The Word in the lending business is yes they will take a small dip. Especially when the FEDs meet again here soon. The expectation is that the feds will lower the prime rate by .25%. This is the expectation.

Your other question on should I buy a home now. I would say yes, now is the time to purchase while it is still a buyers market. Sellers are taking some low offers currently. Now is your chance to get a get deal on a home with amazing features for a reduced price. I would move forward with looking at your next purchase. Call me to get help. (608) 575-5185.
