A property that is included in a public information database and identified is the subject of a legal proceeding, with a lis pendens filed. Because there is a legal proceeding, does not mean that the property is for sale. The amount that you see listed is the amount in identified in the legal proceeding. Many properties which have lis pendens filed will not be sold at this time. In many instances, the property owners will resolve the legal issue and retain the property. If it going to be offered for sale, the amount of the lis pendens does not reflect the price at which a property will be sold.

If a property has been foreclosed upon and ordered for sale by the sheriff at auction, the price listed is the opening price. It may be bid up from there.

sale, and why would you want to add a photo, where?

Hi Sudhir,
Do you mean 3 bedroom house from scratch, or you have a house and you need to add 3 bedrooms?

With my experience dealing with banks and short sales, I have learned to take the timeframes and deadlines the banks give us with a grain of salt. In most of my short sale deals, rarely has the bank kept to their word with the deadlines and the timeframes they give us. They may tell you approval should be received within a week and then its a month later and your still waiting....

Entertaining a short sale is all a gamble in which all parties involved must have severe patience.
While the time may pay off in the long run if your offer is accepted by the bank, its not always guaranteed to end that way.

Best with your situation and offer....

I am assuming you are talking about the new construction townhouses in Coventry Park? They would be part of the Morris School district as the community is park of Morris Plains.

They have sold very quickly as the Morris Plains market is very tight on inventory. According to the last data I looked at for Morris Plains, there was only 2 months of inventory there:

I'd be happy to share some additional information if you are interested. Please feel free to reach out.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Hi Ferdinand

I agree with your train of thought. i would recommend a Town home or condo vs a house if you are planing on renting in a few years. Houses for rent are always in demand but the upkeep of the exterior is an extra concern when you are not around

I think Bergen county or Montclair, Nutley are great places to live and in the future will be very easy to rent. If you would like to meet me in my office for a free buyers consultation we can go over all your options and make sure all your needs are met.

Craigslist id a good source for free rentals
I can also email you a list of available rentals listed with Realtors.
Typically when working with a Realtor for a rental the fee is 1 month paid by the tenant. sometimes the landlord will pay it or 1/2 of it.
let me know if I can help you

Dear buyer,

Those townhomes are NOT FHA approved. Very few townhome and condo complexes are currently approved.

Good luck with your search.

The new construction in Parsipppany is either a raised ranch style or colonial. A new colonial just sold for 530K. As a rough approximation you could use 530K/2000 or 265. If you would like comps please contact me. I am very familiar with the Parsippany marketplace.
As a point of information, the banks are only looking at comps from the last 6 months.

No one can tell you what town is "better". as that is a subjective word........and there are residents in each town who will tell you their town is the "best" !

I suggest you look at homes in both towns and see if your budget will offer you the kind of home you want.
You can also make use of the various links that offer town information, along with school information.

Please feel free to visit my website where i have provided a number of helpful links that can help answer some of the questions you might have!

All the best.

Jeremy Gulish answered:
While I can't speak for the signs you are seeing, typically rent-to-own programs are structured so the renter pays a higher than market rent for the home. A small amount of the rent goes to the principal of paying off the home. Often the financials are structured so that the owner/landlord has very little risk because if the renter defaults on payments, the owner/landlord will still own the property and will have had the advantage of getting higher than market rents. ... more

You should have no problem selling the home in the future, if anything it should be easier. Anything you do to improve the property should only add value.

You need to be careful with all 3 of these issues.

Who fixed the crack. Some cracks are much more serious than others. Did the homeowner fix it?
Consult an expert on this issue. Remember, someday, you will be selling the home.

A french drain will usually keep water out of a basement. But it will not address dampness and moisture. Are you going to keep the basement as unfinished space?

Radon can be solved rather easily with a professionally installed remediation system.

Interview a few, get referrals from people you know who were satisfied with their agents, select someone with integrity, experience and who knows how to market your home and negotiate the deal.
All agents believe they can do this, but there are some who are just better and more experienced than others.
Consider that you are trusting them with the full value of your home in cash. If you wouldn't feel comfortable with them holding your money, why trust them with the keys to your home?
