One of the most important aspects of ownership is that you never have to worry if you will have a slip in the future. Another feature of ownership over leasing is the potential for appreciation over time. Ownership, however, still comes with exenses above and beyond purcahse price - maintenance fees, insurance, property taxes, etc. If you know you will be an active boater for years to come, owning a slip may be a great option. There are some values, even foreclosures, you can take advantage of right now. Please let me know if I can help in any way. ... more

Many homeowners do have pools and we have a search criteria that will allow us to pull only properties that have pools. As far as community pools many home owners like the idea of turning the maintenance over to someone else.

Let me know and will send you a list of homes that have pools. 910-620-7206

Adam Slack answered:
Condo's are generally a little more difficult than any single family detached home because they do have to go through another step or level of Underwriting. The actual Homeowners Association or HOA has to be looked at. The by laws, covenants, investor ownership are all reviewed to make sure it meets Conventional loan guidelines.

Is there a particular condo complex that you are inquiring about? If so, i would be happy to look into it for you to see if it would be eligible for conventional financing. If it's not, my company Guaranteed Rate, Inc has multiple portfolio loan options if you are looking to buy a condo that doesn't fit inside the box described above.

Terry Farnsworth answered:
Hi Joanne,

Real estate commissions are fully negotiable. Agents will generally stay away from communicating a "standard" commission to you - as this could be construed as price-fixing and is illegal. This is to prevent a agent from coming into your house and advising that "you might as well use me, because all the agents around here charge XYZ% and you won't find someone cheaper by shopping around". I'm not sure if you are asking about a buyer's agent, or if you are asking as a seller - but if you are planning to sell your home, agents are typically open to coming to a compromise on what they charge.

Hope that helps!

Grace,

What type of water problems have occurred and can it be directly traced back to the city turning the street into a one way street?

Was this water problem not disclosed to a new purchaser? or not to the owner at the time the city performed the work? ... more

As long as those items reporting to the Bureaus are paid on time your credit score should be fine.

Jay Seville answered:
The chicken or the egg is the classic question in real estate next to "How's the market?"

The answer is you dive into both whole heartedly. You get the home listed at the right price and start looking at homes to buy and write offers on in the meanwhile. then tie the 2 together somehow when opportunity knocks--you find the right home.

Your home needs to be listed so well that it gives confidence to the owners of the home you want to buy. Likely you will negotiate and ratify a contract on a new home and you will include a sale of home contingency meaning the transaction is contingent on your selling your home. The Sellers here will be open to doing that if you give them fair price very near market value and can demonstrate your home is priced right to sell, is staged to sell and is presented exceptionally well online with its virtual tour, etc.

So dive in and pursue both 100% and it will work out.

And learn our market by watching this video update on the "boom" Wilmington just had:
