As a Buyer if you want to do the home search or rental search a successful one, without making any mistakes or overlooking anything, including whether dogs are allowed, I am assuming that you are
looking at condos or townhouses with a home association and therefore rules.... If you could connect with one trusted Realtor, your one stop real estate resource center, all you need to do is commit to
one Agent and be 100 % loyal so that that Realtor also can be fully committed to you, buyers agents are usually paid by the sellers side at the closing table if the property is listed with a brokerage and is on the multiple listing service of the area....

Be careful do not do this on your own.
If you need recommendations get back to us here, we gladly send you good recommendations.
Good Luck to you

Hi John - Prices are set by supply and demand. The first time home buyer segment has had the strongest demand. So homes in the $200,000 price point are in demand. This is the strongest part of the market so there are fewer bargains there. High end home sales are weak and there are a lot of bargains there.

In addition to first time home buyer tax incentives, recovery begins at the bottom and moves up from there. So the recession has contributed to the strengthening of this price point relative to other segments of the market.

Ref: location. Prices tend to be higher in cities because people are working there. You can get great homes under $200,000 in many towns in Southern Maine but it might be a bit of a commute.

Lastly, look at costs. Look at the price of land and the cost of construction. While we now have homes selling below "cost", it still factors into the price point.

You can find a home, even a great home, in your price range. Your best bet is to find a great agent to work with you and be persistent!
