I can't believe the realtor didn't put a date that is so wrong and sneaky... I'm sorry to hear that, just to be on the safe side I would call the realtor and ask for a realease form from his services, there is no date and you don't want to sell the house 4 months from now and have him/her serving you lawsuit papers just because you didn't get a release from the contract. I hope I was helpful and wish you the Best! Jeannette Batsikas ... more

There's no set definition of a finished basement. In my opinion it would have to have some type of flooring (tile/carpet/wood), sheetrock walls, proper ceiling, light fixtures, electrical outlets, and heat registers/radiators. ... more

Never heard of that. I know fha requires a termite inspection if and only if the builder didnt use presure treated wood. Sounds like a bit of a misunderatanding on someones part. What kind of loan is it? And if there is nothing built yet it doesnt seem like you should be doing anything with the lender at this point. Things will expire by the time your ready to close. ... more

Call me? Lol ...Seriously....the first step would be to work with a Realtor. The second one be to make sure your priced accordingly to market value. After that, would be to analyze the marketing tools that are used to get to a successful closing.

If you have any questions, please let me know .

Does your mother in law have an agent, if so what is he/she suggesting; if not, it may be time to consider the idea--in today's market pricing and marketing that maximize exposure are paramount; review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests and price accordingly and competitively; also review marketing and adjust accordingly; do keep in mind that a home is worth what someone is willing to pay for it; it doesn’t matter what the seller needs or potential buyers can afford to spend; market conditions do matter as does the immediacy for a transaction to take place.... ... more

Hello Giovanni,
As long as there is an additional area in the home like an attic or another structure that can provide storage I wouldn't think that a basement is necessary. Sometimes the water table in certain areas is high so there would be no basements in homes in that area.
Hope that helps.
Good luck!

Tony McMahon answered:
Depending upon the loan type there are certain conditions that must be met prior to a loan being approved and funded. The buyer has no say in the process, it is dictated by his lender . He may not have been fully aware of the process. You may be able to renegotiate the repair money back into the sale price and than make the necassary lender required repairs yourself in order to get your home sold. ... more

Take the investor money and run. Re-investing in a home you don't want in a market that likely won't improve anytime soon is more than just a gamble.

Hi Janine:
Here's what you need to do: (1) find out what your house is worth in today's market. I would be happy to perform a comparative market analysis for you. (2) after we determine how much you would be able to retain from your current property, I would suggest speaking to a mortgage broker or bank loan officer about how much you can afford and get approved for. (3) check properties in Staten Island where you want to live to determine whether puttiing your current home on the market for sale makes financial sense. (4) list your home for sale (5) get an accepted offer (6) find your new home in Staten Island. Without knowing your current home and what you would be looking for Staten Island, I could not give you an accurate answer regarding what the differences would be. Please contact me at your convenience so we can set up an interview.

You have to be agent/broker represented to be in the listing section, however you may place an ad complete with video, photos and links in the blog section.

Each brokerage is free to set its own fee schedules and to negotiate different charges with individual clients. Any agreement between two different firms to set standard rates, however, is a serious violation of antitrust laws. ... more
