A title company or the agent can give you a breakdown of typical closing costs.

I suggest you contact a title company and ask for typical fees. Of course, it would be nice for you to give them your transaction to close also. I'd be pleased to help with their loan application.

Most likely renting will be a better option, but if there are favorable factors, selling could work for you. I would be glad to discuss this with you in more detail, as there are a lot of questions that need to be answered to give you the best advice. ... more

would be interested to see how the report is actually worded...there may be active insects (in the mulch, etc), question would be if they are Wood Destroying Insects! Seems the inspector (and I assume a licensed professional) would want to issue an accurate question would be as to what the contract says are the rights of the buyer....if they can cancel at their absolute discretion, this might very well become a larger issue...the buyer may request that you treat the property.....then it becomes a negotiable issue as to who pays and how much!

I wish you all the best!

Sounds like youre trying to sell your home by yourself? Who is going to handle the title work? Do you have a title company and/or an attorney lined up? You will likely have title fees. Your title company should be able to give you a quote. Then you'll also have to pay your taxes (Jan 1 to date of closing). You may have to also pay for other pro-rated items (sewer, water, HOA fees, etc.) for the month in which you're closing. Your buyers may also ask you to pay for all or part of their closing costs (pretty common these days). Their closing costs are a lot more than yours (not counting the commission)

As always, I highly recommend using a Realtor. You have a large amount of money on the line, and you want it to go smoothly. Problems come up (more often than not) and you need someone representing you and looking out for your best interests. Good luck!

Hello LBC,

You really need to disclose all problems not only to your agent but to your buyer. How would you like to buy a house if the seller was hiding issues. You are also setting yourself up for a lawsuit in the future as the buyer can come after you for not disclosing issues that you should have known about. ... more

It depends on how highly desired the area is, and how highly desired the house is. Flood insurance is fairly inexpensive, as you probably already know. Yes you will miss a few buyers, but some are fine with it.

Good Luck!

Hello Isadora,

You are in a unique situation but, I am sure there are others who have been there also. I'm sure we all agree that a quality education is hard to beat but go with your instinct and not what someone else tells you.

Just an fyi, it is always better to own real estate than to lease it. You only pay for someone else's investment and you are not helping your credit. What if you could use your net proceeds from the sale of your current home to put down on another property? We may find you a home that qualifies for the USDA loan program (100% financing) or for an FHA loan (only 3.5% down).

Are you thinking about renting yours out and then renting another?

HI Bekah,
for the most up to date information, and to move quickly, you should speak to a Realtor in your area. they would have access to the lastest statistics for homes like yours- and even more importantly, they will also have insight on why certain homes sold and why others didn't, and how to market your home for the highest return in the shortest amount of time.

If it would help, I could see who is in my referral group in your area and help you get a dedicated, full time Realtor that will work hard for you! Just let me know if that would help- I could get someone on the phone to you as soon as tomorrow!

Josh Thomas answered:
I did a quick CMA of the criteria you gave (1400-1600sf, Stony Point HS attendance zone). I came up with an average list price of $91.68 per square foot. Apply that you your size of 1500sf, and you get a list price of $137,520.

Obviously this is an extreme estimate. I could be much more accurate if I knew what subdivision you were in, how old your home is, condition etc. But based on this estimate, your $140,000 price range is certainly a possibility.

If you want a complete and detailed CMA, just give me a shout. Good luck!

Without knowing the particulars of you home I can't give you a specific answer. Here are the stats since April 2008 for homes priced between 125,000 and 350,000 which I hope covers yours.

Average 3 2 2227 194,726 88 189,712 88 57

If you want to know pretty accurately where you stand, you will need to have a comparative market analysis done by an agent. I can provide that free and at a time convenient to your schedule. Call me if you are interested.

Dallas Texas answered:
You need to work with an extremely busy buyers agent that is on property all the time working with buyers. Have this agent tell you what is fashion forward in your area, also go look at new builds that will provide you some idea on how to upgrade.
You need to confirm you don't put more into your property than what it is worth many home buyer normal mistakesI recommend to my sellers not to upgrade till prior to moving out then everything looks fresh and new, start cleaning out closets, attic, garage, work on curb appeal, 60 days prior to the market, paint, new carpert and etc. based on what the agent suggests.
