This really depends on the company. Shop around.
I have gotten estimates from $2,000-$3,500 for very large trees and root removal.
Key here is where is the it easily accessible for large equipment?? If so this cuts down on the labor costs
Good luck,

Any questions you may have can best be answered by your attorney, therefore consider a consultation; don't simply just rely on online information....

Is the property a short sale? In order to get an FHA loan, the property hs to meet FHA guidelines. If the property needs repairs and is a short sale,the home owner probably is not in a position to spend any money on the property to bring it up to FHA standards. Of course without knowing all the facts, I am mearly speculating but this senario is something I see on a daily basis, so. . . .

Tim Moore answered:
Yes, you should be able to cancel the contract based on that incorrect information. Your agent should be able to help you with this and get it canceled and the earnest money back. I hope it is a listed home and not a FSBO in which case it could be more difficult and require a lawyer. ... more

Put the address in and see pics. The realtor with the listing has not added it to Trulia apparently. Or see with address and see the listing pics.

It would be helpful to know what amount you have been pre-approved for since there is a wide range of homes available.

Ron Thomas answered:
I have not had to fight an assessment,
however, I would think that the basic for your complaint would be the Comparables in the neighborhood:

I would take a clipboard and go door-to-door and interview at least 20 or 30 and preferrably 50
write their address, last sold date, selling price and their assessment.
You may be able to get a lot of information from your Assessor's Office; they may co-operate.

Good luck and may God bless

You can ask the sellers to see a C.L.U.E. report, it provides any claim information; also chat with neighbors/locals, etc.

This is an odd question coming from an agent, and you are submitting it for many different towns. What are you trying to accomplish?

yes but there is not much selection in that price range. You might want to extend you search area to include Emerson and washington

I am selling a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo in Hackensack. Commute to the city from Hackensack is better than that of Westwood. Are you interested?

These are all questions you need to talk to your lawyer about. It depends on where you are in the contract process, etc. A lawyer will be able to advise you of the proper route to take.
Good luck.
