I checked the MLS and could not find the home listed. Did you see a For Sale Sign on the property?

My NC Homes Team answered:
You are wise to wonder. Rental listings are frequently fraudulent. Under no circumstances should you ever mail money to anyone. You need to have them meet you at the property and show you the home. If they make any excuses as to why they can't then you should head for the hills as they are trying to scam you. ... more

Good morning,
Market value has many facets such as location, size, condition, upgrades, neighborhood values, competition, and more. You may need the services of a real estate appraiser to assist in getting an accurate market value range for that point in time. If that is not a possibility, you might want to contact your City Assessor's office to get information about sales which were occurring in May of 2009 in your neighborhood.
Our office offers a complimentary market analysis for sale purposes. Please call if you need further assistance.
Best, Charlotte Gardner

Hi, actually I am not giving you the answer you asked for. Instead, I want you to think about why you are looking to deal with a seller directly. Perhaps you are a professional and know all the ins and outs of buying/selling property. Perhaps you have been in the real estate field yourself for some time and by experience this is the way for you to go.

So, you want to save the commission and get the property "cheaper". Did you know that the " For Sale By Owner (FSBO)" wants to do the same thing? That, or the seller is so close to being underwater with their property value that saving the commission seems to be the way to go and break even.

Working with a reputable Realtor should not be an expense but should be treated like part of the investment you are about to acquire. The best of success to you!

Hi Rose. The Brattleboro housing market does seem to be active this year, more so than in the past 2-3 years. Under contract and closings are trending upwards. But I think it's too early to tell if prices are going up; that's something we won't know until we have more data, later in the year. ... more

Most Mortgage estimates that you see, will not include Taxes nor Insurance:
Add to that, the Mortgage Estimates, (just like automobile lease payments you see on TV,) will be directed toward people with pristine credit.
They are all advertisements; meant to attract you.
If you are seriously considering buying, you need to do your diligence and contact a reputable Loan Officer.

Rich Gardner answered:
Hi Phillip,
What town are you looking to gather this data on? Burlington has a property data base that you can use to gain some of this information. You may also have good luck using the ‘grand list’ some of the other towns have this information available as well. The difficulty is crossing town lines. It’s uncommon to find the same information displayed in the same program.
Another avenue is to use a Vermont sold property search. Just type that into Google and you should have a list of options.

In those years, valuations peaked in 2007 and dropped by 35% nationally in 2009. Housing prices have now recovered half of the drop from the peak. Some areas around the coasts and oil boomtowns have seen full recovery to new highs. ... more

Just the one that I could find. Sorry. The listing is actually expired, meaning it's no longer on the market. Originally listed at $215,000. Hope that's helpful.

Susanna Fetherolf answered:
If you need to know what additional fees regarding, road/water/sewer, you can ask the listing agent for the data sheet unless they are attached to the listing separately. An icon with a paperclip will gain access to the information if the agent has already provided it. Most condos and homes located along Village Road, Upper Village Road and Shady Lane are billed quarterly for their usage. The SnowCcreek Condos are only charged for water & sewer. I hope I have answered your quest about the "resort fee". ... more

Hi Pat,

Yes, long term rentals do exist but, as you are probably finding out, there aren't many resources available online to prospective renters to help them locate long term rentals in the Upper Valley.

Give me a call at 802-332-8966 or send me an email at with some criteria of what you are looking for, how many occupants, whether or not you have pets, lease commencement date and budget.

Hope this helps and I look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.

Call around to a couple of lenders. Northfield Savings Bank is good. You should still be on the residential side of lending (as opposed to commercial), but my guess is you're going to have to have a reasonable down payment.

Seller contribution to your closing costs, or "cash back at closing" might serve as a bridge.
