NEVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What if you buy the house and then find out that there is a structural issue that will cost 50K to fix? or that there is mold in the house....Personally, I would NEVER buy without inspections or recommend that my clients do so.
You can agree to buy As IS, with the inspection clause in tack. That means you have the right to have an inspection, but understand that the seller is not going to fix any issues. Then, do inspections and if you find any problems you can still walk away with your deposits. Try that next time.....Amanda

Hi Sal,

Shelton, overall, is a great community to live in. However, I would recommend that you contact the Shelton Police Department and ask them about the specifics of certain areas. They would be your best bet.

Hope this helps!

Robert D Hughes answered:
Sam if you are referring to a buyer agents business agreement, you need to read through your documents and see the clause that pertains to that. If the agent isn't willing to cancel and you have exhausted all communication with that individual, contact that agent's manager/supervisor. They may re-assign a different agent, or terminate any previous agreement. Depends on people involved and circumstances for terminating your buyer agency agreement.

Best of luck, sorry you are experiencing this situation,

David Brooke answered:
As long as your contract states that the transaction is contingent upon an acceptable home inspection, and if the Seller does not agree to remedy the legitimate material concerns, you should be fine to "walk" and receive your earnest money back. Also remember that "legitimate" concerns are typically affecting the property's safety and functionality; not cosmetics. You will need to sign a form called a Notice of Unsatisfactory Inspection with your Agent and the Sellers as well. This will outline yours and the Sellers options. Lastly, consult your attorney regarding these matters as well for further legal clarification. ... more

Much will depend on your contract, therefore review the document, or consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate.

Do you have a signed agreement with your agent offering to pay commission above what the seller is already offering; if so, you may need to pay--if unhappy with your agent, do contact his/her broker owner and or office manger and express your concerns.... ... more

Your buyer broker agreement will have the answers. If you in fact agreed to pay 3% and the other side is paying 2.5 - then yes you are responsible for the other .5%

Kimberly Camella Roy answered:
As long as you have an inspection contingency in your offer, you are covered.
so if during the inspection time frame, you find that something is not to your satisfaction, you can withdraw
from the deal.
You need an inspection contingency though and it must be done within the time frame stated and
if there is an issue which you need to withdraw, it must be in writing.

Go into the listing and "c laim" it as your listing. This will allow you to edit it with the correct information.

Hi Rob, A simple question with a complicated answer. The average per sq.ft price applys only to the average house. The best way to decide what to offer is to engage a Buyer'a Agent and have them do a "Buyer's Side CMA". This will give you a much more detailed approach to making an offer and it will give you some ammunition for the negotiations to follow.

Good luck.

Buying a house in Shelton is a great idea and an awesome value especially in the Huntington section of Shelton. Shelton is one of the best kept bedroom community to NY secrets around the area.
It has one of the best tax rates in the surrounding area. The mill rate is very low. 18.51 if I'm not mistaken from the last time I looked.
Buying & investing now in home ownership in Shelton is a fabulous investment.
I can go on and on but I won't for now. To much to type.

Even though I am not familiar with the area, I can advise you to get an agent - that is what we do and we use our MLS database to provide statistics both to help someone sell a home and also to buy. This takes the guess work out of it for you.

Good Luck

The question you are asking is really a legal one, and is best suited for an attorney. I have to assume that since you are buying a lot of properties, that you have a good RE attorney. I suggest that you speak to him/her about this. ... more

Rumor has it that feds are considering it. We are all hopeful that it happens, I think it will help a bunch with the current conditions. I believe it would apply to both purchasing and refinancing with the right credit scores. Lets keep our fingers crossed! ... more

Hi Patrick. Usually you don't sell to the relo company right away. The relo company offers to buy it from you if it is not sold within so many days. That's what I have seen, but I am not a relo specialist. I am sure the relo company does not pay prime dollar, but I don't think it's super discounted either. The relo company probably has an agreement with your employer and it's all part of the reloation package that you are offered. The benefit of dealing with the relo company is that you have a guaranteed buyer if it does not sell within a reasonable time. ... more
