Sara A Steele answered:
From what perspective do you ask this question? It is very broad and not sure that I would agree with you. If you are a seller and want to have a market analysis done, I am happy to provide this at no charge. I have seen many community values gradually rising. Hampton Roads settled sales average $199K, compared to $172,500 in 2004 and $210K in 2005. inventory has retreated to 2006 levels of under 10000 listings.
My direct line is 757-235-2608 and I specialize in Portsmouth Real Estate.

Angie answered:
I was told that generally doesn't happen here....but when I lived elsewhere, I called the tax assessor's office, filled out a discrepancy grievance between the market value/purchase price and the tax assessor, then had to meet with an assessor. It was lowered, though not as low as the purchase price. I think there were separate steps if you were elderly or on a fixed income. Here...I don't know. We are looking at purchasing a house and I would LOVE to know if you find out anything different... ... more

Depending on the square footage of the property, it ranges from $825-$1,000 per month. Please let me know if you are interested in having a professional property manager handle the management of your rental property. I have several properties I manage at this time, in addition to listing homes for sale and working with buyers. I can be reached at my Coldwell Banker office at 757-484-4400 or on my cell at 757-418-2745.
Have a great day!!
Jennifer Anderson-Helms, REALTOR

I looked up that street on the Fema Flood map and some parts are in the flood zone. I found 2 homes on that street for sale and one in in the flood zone. I would have to have the address to get exact information. Please feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

That would be a great question for your loan officer, if the statute of limitations for collection is up, you may not want to even inquire or risk restarting the clock, but ask your loan officer what they need. ... more
