There's a reason that 85% of homes sell using a real estate agent. As a homeowner, you simply can't compete with the marketing resources of a real estate company.... they're blasting their listings out to hundreds of sites, both nationally and internationally. If you really want to sell, you need to get an agent. They may tell you some things you don't want to hear, particularly about what a reasonable price for the home may be. If you're serious, I'd be happy to give you a referral for an agent in your area. ... more

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed, you can however try blogging about the property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site. ... more

HI Cheryl,
I will take a look through our MLS to see if there is anything available. I assume anywhere in Ulster County is acceptable.

I will email you.
I hope I can help- it would be my pleasure.
Best Wishes

Yes I believe you are correct. There are those buyers looking for bargains and of course everyone wants good value for their money - but there are buyers in our market looking for newer and especially "greener" construction as long as the home is designed well.

If I understand your explanation of the property correctly, it is a 3 unit property, but consists of one 2 unit and one single unit. That is where you have the problem. Fannie Mae guidelines require there to be exact comps if it is a property like that which is a-typical. From your comment about not finding comps, that is probably the issue. I have no idea why a credit union, who typically don't even do FHA loans, told you that you cannot have a non-occupant co-borrower. Clearly someone who is your father is a relative, so obviously that is not the issue. The other issue is ownership interest in a property that is only 15 miles away. No matter what you try to say about your reasoning, anyone will give you a problem with that one unless you show from tax returns that you are currently renting out that property.
How much do you have for a down payment? You may be able to get a loan from someplace like Ulster County Savings Bank, if you have enough to put down for their guidelines, and you can get over the hurdle of the other property. Because they generally don't sell to Fannie Mae, they would be more likely to go with an odd property.

If you don't have an agent, consider the services--he/she can make an inquiry on your behalf.

Hello Richard,
We've only seen a small decline in pricing in Woodstock. We seem to be somewhat insulated compared to what's going on in the rest of the country. The second home market still remains quite strong. ... more
