You would have to get a quote from an insurance agent. There are variables. Flood insurance might be necessary, most complexes have insurance in place already but not all have adequate coverage. ... more

You will want to interview a few agents and see what their close rate is. You will get a number of bids here.

Also, are you interested in someone who is JUST a buyer's agent or an agent that is just aggressive?

You can also look at their designations -- ABR is Accredited BUYERs Representation. GRI - is Graduate REALTOR Institute - which is a long process for serious REALTORs (Kinda the equivallent to a MBA).

Good luck with your home purchase and if you need a recommendation, would be glad to help.

Trulia does not, but because it is only a platform to post and advertise ads for listings whether they be for sale or for rent. You should either hire a buyer broker who can help you or contact a local agent who specializes with rentals who can assist you. ... more

Hi Ray, I would love to sit down with you and your wife and explain the whole home buying process. A-Z. When you applied for the FHA loan, the loan officer may have given you an est. of closing. If he did his job right, he should've told you ALLL out of pocket expenses, not just their "closing costs". Also, being a first time home buyer, I'll explain buyer agency, as per State of CT law. -Anton 203.667.4482 ... more

Hello Rutherforddo,
Here is a link to information on buyer closing costs which you may find helpful:

http://www.ctrealestatelaw.com/6-tips.php

Typically, they are anywhere from 2%-5% of the cost of the property.

Here are some fees to expect but I suggest contacting a local lender to gain more insight on what the actual amounts may be for your particular loan:

-Credit report fee
-Property appraisal fee
-Inspection fee
-Title search and title insurance fees
-Document recording and survey fees
-Transfer taxes
-Property taxes
-Loan application fee
-Loan points and loan origination fee
-Attorney's fees (yours and your lender's)
-Escrow account balances
-Document preparation fees

Best wishes!

Laura Feghali answered:
Hello Hossain,
The first order of becoming an REO agent is to obtain your real estate license. Taking and passing the real estate course as well as your state's real estate exam is how that is accomplished.
REO properties require an experienced agent who knows the market and the selling and purchase process well. It would be in your best interests to get a few transactions under your belt before diving in to list bank-owned properties.
There are training courses available to licensed agents on how to list and market bank-owned properties but working with a institution that gives you the REO leads is how most agents obtain the listings.

Hope this is helpful!

Yes. Association has to write it into your bylaws. Consult your local real estate attorney for process details and instructions.

Hello Mehul

There are many options for downtown living in Stamford. We have several options that may work for you, ranging from as little as 110K upto $1M. We also have a host of properties that are generally available, as well as those that are done privately. Several of these condos end up being 'investments' for primary home buyers as they move into bigger homes down the road.

I would be happy to sit down with you and discuss the various options. Our network allows us to uncover all properties, as well as negotiate hard to get the best possible price for our clients. Feel free to call me anytime at (203) 280 3838 or email me at stamfordrealestate@yahoo.com
