I pride myself in not being your “typical” real estate agent. I will actually listen to you and your needs ...
What property are you referring to? There's no link or address.
There was no property address referenced in you question. I'd be happy to assist, if you could give me more info. Thanks!
Which home are you referring to? There was no address or link to the listing. Also, sometimes agents who list the home don't take many photos. or they list it before taking photos. This is a huge pet peeve of mine! But if you gave me a property address, I could contact the listing agent for you and see when he/she will be posting photos, and even email them to you.
You should contact your Realtor.
What is your question exactly? If you want the listing to be updated with new price, you should be contacting your REALTOR.
As others have said, there is a down payment assistance program through CHFA. You could also look into a USDA loan, if you're okay with living in a semi rural area. I have a great lender who has been able to help a lot of people in your situation. Feel free to contact me directly and I can give you her info.
Most likely that's a typo. But there was no link or no property address referenced, so I can't say for sure. Feel free to contact me with that info, and I'd be happy to research it!
First of all some variations in SF numbers has to do with different sites calculating it differently. Some MLSs only count above ground SF. Others include basement SF. Second, if you're a buyer, you should know that price per square foot is not a good way to determine a home's value. It really only applies to new construction. Think about it. It's just about math. Larger SF = lower price per SF. Lower price per SF doesn't necessarily mean that it's a better value. It just means its a larger house.
Are you looking to buy or sell? Best resource for information is your local MLS (through your REALTOR). These sites don't always have the most updated listings.
Jack, there is no property referenced in your question. Feel free to contact me directly and I can get that information for you.
One more question for you...is there any chance for compromise on the lot size? I have seen a few properties in Niwot HS area, that are less than 1 acre, but still a decent size lot (like .55 to .75). Ranches with no HOA, under $500K.
Hi Nancy, thanks for clarifying. Maybe it is a fault with this site, but I also still firmly believe that there are many agents out there who don't properly enter the info in the MLS to begin with. (or they don't enter it properly on this site). Who knows. I feel your pain. But I actually live in the area (Erie) and I'm very familiar with Longmont and Niwot areas. I'll keep my eyes open for you! take care, Sally
As other agents have said, you first need to talk to a lender to see what you qualify for (loan value and type of loan). Then you need to find a Realtor to work for you as a buyer's agent. Buying a foreclosed home may be cheaper, but it also has it's risks. Many foreclosures have issues, and require the buyers to put some $$ into repairs. Also, because of this, many foreclosures won't qualify for certain types of financing, such as FHA or VA loans. Most first time buyers have limited funds, and FHA lets you put as little as 3.5 down. If you're a vet, you can put zero down with a VA loan. There are some foreclosure that are in good shape. You just need an agent working for you to find the right place for you. good luck!
The best way to search for, and view properties is to have REALTOR working for you as a buyer's agent. We have access to the local MLS system that has ALL available properties. We can create a search specific to you wants/needs. And we can take you to view all of the properties you like! It's one stop shopping! P.S. this site doesn't have every listing that's in the MLS. They only show listings for agents who have signed up to be on this site. So, what you're seeing is a bit limited compared to what's out there. I'm happy to help!
Well, I'm sorry but I'm not a homes dot com representative, and I'm not in charge of building the website and designing information data exchange system. Are you working with a Realtor? If so, he/she can easily create the search in the MLS. If not, please contact me, and I'd be happy to create the exact search you're looking for. As I said before, sometimes agents don't fill in that field, so even if you do a search based on lot size, there could be listings you're missing. So it really helps to have a human being going through each and every listing to find "the one" you're looking for. I do this for all my clients. Especially now, with inventory so low. You need someone willing to go the extra mile.
The best way to search for property is to have a REALTOR create a search in the MLS for you. It has the most functionality, and you can be very specific with your search criteria. I also have another site I refer to clients, that pulls listings from both IRES (the Northern CO MLS) and Denver Metrolist. I'm happy to point you to that if you want to contact me directly. Keep in mind the data is only as good as the Realtor (or their assistant) who entered it into the system. Sometimes agents don't fill in all the fields, such as the lot size field, for whatever reason. This is a big pet peeve of mine.
There is a program with Colorado Housing & Finance Authority (CHFA), but it's basically a 2nd mortgage. I have a great lender I work with who has done these types of loans. Please contact me directly and I can put you in touch with her.
Need more information. Address would be helpful.
This is why you need to work with a REALTOR as a Buyer's Agent. There are many real estate websites, and they don't necessarily show the actual listing agent's information. You really should find one agent to do the legwork for you. Why not? It's FREE! He/she will create a search in the MLS and send you listings that fit your criteria. It's much more effective than trying to contact different listing agents directly, scheduling showings with different people for different properties, etc. Plus, the listing agent is working for the seller! You need to be represented by a Buyer's Agent. Good luck!
That's a pretty wide area. Do you want to be within a certain driving distance from Denver or work or school? Also...what is your price range? Please contact me directly, and I'd be happy to set up a search in the MLS for you.
Tip: Don't use these real estate website to search for properties. You really need to hire a Realtor as a Buyer's Agent. He/she can set up a search in your local MLS and send you listings that fit your exact specifications. These sites don't always have the most up to date listings, and when you do inquire about them, they are often under contract or already sold! Plus, if you do find a property that's available, you'd be contacting the listing agent -- who represents the SELLER, not YOU. If you contact me directly with your contact info & property specs, I'd be happy to find an agent in your area.
These sites don't necessarily have accurate information. RealtyTrac is notorious for having "fake" listings -- just to capture your info and generate leads. If you're serious about buying a house, then you need to take the job seriously. Hire a REALTOR to represent you as a Buyer's Agent. We have access to all foreclosures (they are listed in our MLS system). It doesn't cost you anything to have a Realtor working for you, since they typically get paid by the seller through the listing brokerage.
Can you give me an example of where you're seeing a monthly tax figure in the $1,000s range? That can't be right.
That figure you are seeing is an annual figure. If you have any other questions, or would like to see any properties, please feel free to contact me.
Everything should be spelled out in your contract. Yes, I would suggest you get an attorney involved to be sure.
What would you be suing for exactly? I'm not an attorney, but I don't see anyone breaking the law here. Plus, you don't want your listing agent bringing a buyer. You want them to be working for YOU, not as a transaction broker, or dual agent working both sides. Talk to your relo company about giving you several options to choose from.
A house will sell for "fair market value" regardless of whether you're offering cash, or need a mortgage. If a property has two competing offers, then it's possible, the seller would accept a cash offer, that might be slightly lower than a full price offer where the buyer needs a mortgage. But there are other factors involved in a contract. It's not just about price. Your agent should be able to help guide you through the process. Good luck!
None of the agents on there know the pet policies for a given property. You need to contact the agent directly: Christina Freyer with Freyer and Herzoff Real Estate. Her contact info is listed in the ad.
I know lots of great areas, and would be happy to assist you in your property search. However, I need to know a little more info, such as price range, size, style, etc. Please contact me directly so I can get a better feel for your search requirements.
Hi Deb, I'd be happy to assist you. I can set up a search in the MLS specific to your search criteria. These real estate websites don't always have the most up to date listings.
I would be happy to contact the listing agent for you and see if there are any more pictures. Please contact me directly, and I can email them to you, or direct you to a better website.
Of course! Some loan program may not be available if the property is in very poor condition (i.e. FHA doesn't want to see plumbing or roof problems, and there needs to be functioning appliances, etc.) I'd be happy to assist you in your search. Keep in mind that foreclosures aren't always a great deal. Most bank owned properties are listed at "fair market value".
I would be happy to refer you to a great lender who can review all of your financial info. If you don't qualify now, she'll be able to identify some things that you need to work on so that you will qualify down the road. Please contact me directly for her information.
The foreclosure process can take a long time -- from 6 months to over a year. You can't contact the lender directly. You need to wait until it comes on the market (listed with a realtor). If you're wanting to buy a bank owned property, the best way is to have a Realtor working for you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she can set up a search in the MLS, so that you are notified of listings as they come on the market. (Don't wait for them to appear on a real estate website -- by then it's probably too late). Let me know if can help!
As Julian mentioned, the downpayment depends on the loan. Before you shop for property, you need to sit down with a lender or mortgage broker to review your financial situation and determine the best loan option for you. Then you can go shop for a house. If you need the name of a lender, I have a great person I work with. Also, if you need the name of a Realtor in the Aspen area, let me know. I grew up there, and still know many agents up there.
What property are you referring to? A link, MLS# or address would be great. Thanks!
I would be happy to sit down with you and discuss listing your home. Please contact me directly to schedule an appointment.
Unless you contact the agent directly, he/she may not see your question on here. Just click on "view phone number" and you'll be able to call Terry!
What is your question specifically?
Hi Amanda, Not sure if anyone has helped you yet or not. This property is no longer available. However, I'm very familiar with the Frederick / Firestone area. I would be happy to send you some listings that are available. What is your price range? Please contact me directly. -Sally Grenier
Hi Martha, These real estate websites are not the best way to go about searching for homes. Have you tried to email that agent directly, or are you just posting a question on this website? If you are serious about buying, then you need to find a Realtor, to work for YOU as a Buyer's Agent. He/she can search the MLS for listings that fit your specific search criteria and take you out for showings. Good luck!
Hi Paul, Did you ever find someone to show this property to you? If not, I'd be happy to assist you in your home search. Looks like this one is no longer available. However, I can easily set you up for a search in the MLS and email you those listings that fit your search criteria. -Sally Grenier
Unfortunately, nobody is going to "hold" a home for you. Who know if you'll actually be able to buy when February rolls around? If you are interested in buying now, then you could approach your landlord about breaking the lease early. It might help if you can find a replacement tenant for them and make it an easy transition. Otherwise, you'll want to start looking for a home in the next few months (Nov-Dec) then make an offer on something in January for a close date in February. Until then, you need to start the prequalification process. Have you talked to a lender? I have a great gal at FirstCal mortgage who does an awesome job, and offers very competitive rates & closing costs. Contact me if you'd like more info.
Hi Michelle, Yes, I'm happy to work with other agents out of state and offer a referral fee of 25%. Unfortunately, this property is under contract. (this is the downside of trying to search for real estate on sites like this, or trulia, zillow or realtor dot com). I'd be happy to set up a search in our local MLS for properties specific to your search criteria. Just contact me directly and I'll get it set up immediately. Thanks!
Unfortunately, this home is no longer available. However, I'd be happy to assist you in your property search. Real estate websites like this one, realtor, zillow & trulia are notorious for having outdated listings. The only way to guarantee you're searching for "active" listings is to have a Realtor working for you as a Buyer's Agent. I have access to the local MLS and can set up a search specific to your needs. Contact me directly with your contact info and search criteria and I can send you dozens of listings that fit your criteria now!
This property is a townhouse, but it's under contract. (HOA fees are $1075/quarter, taxes are $1871/year). However, I'd be happy to set up a search in the MLS for you for other properties in the area. Just contact me directly with your contact info, search criteria, etc. and I'll get started on it!
Hi Amanda, I just saw this question you posted a few days ago. I'd be happy to show it to you. Please contact me directly to schedule a day & time.
Looks like this property is about 4 miles southeast of the town of downtown Fairplay. Probably about a 5 minute drive. I would have to do some research to find out what you can do with the property. Looks pretty rural, so you'd probably be able to build whatever you want. Contact me directly so I can send that information to you!
Hi Jeri, Some real estate websites are more functional, and user-friendly than others. The best way to search for real estate is to have a Realtor working for you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she can search the MLS for properties that fit your criteria. Agents can email them to you, or post them to your own personal website so you can view pictures, research school info, neighborhood info, etc. I'd love to assist you.
I would be happy to assist you in your property search. I?ll see if I can get the agent to send me more photos. If not, I?d be happy to go preview it, and take some pictures for you!
