Well... Lots of great advice... Ready to go shopping ???
Hey Bob... Zillow will even admit their information is only accurate... well not a high a percentage of the time. It is on piece of putting the entire puzzle together... If you are the owner, and your home is being marketed by a RE professional, I would trust their strategies... They are probably well versed in ALL the marketing ideas and aspects of getting traffic a buyer for your home... If you don't have a professionally licensed Realtor on your side... You should really consider getting one... ASAP =} Good Luck !!!
The real question is who is the owner... Is the owner abandoning the property or do we have to wait for the insurance to clear... May take a while... and some persistence :)
OK Laura... Now what are you going to do with all this awesome information???
Contact your Agent... They should be able to assist you... I do hope all the info was entered initially correct... But once you're out there in cyber-space sometimes it takes a while for these things to correct themselves...
Well Mr Wilkerson... Great advice from some pretty good folks here... Now what are you going to do with all that information??? Ready to take the first step??? Pick up the phone and call one of us!!!
I have lenders that would love to get your business... Lets go !!!! No time like the present, especially when we believe rates will be going up after the first of the year... Call me and we'll go shopping !!!!!
Well... You have some great information here... Now what are you going to "DO" with it??? Call and I'll be your guide :)
Well... Lets see what one of my trusted lenders say about that... I promised him to never talk about loan pre-qualifications, if he never tries to negotiate a real estate contract... Lots of great buying opportunities out there right now.... and rates are giving the general indication they are on the rise, so don't wait too long to contact me.
Looks like some great advise... Is this your current home? Are you looking to move to a new one? Is this an investment property? What are the number of beds and baths and any other special features the home has? Have you determined a price for the rental or can I offer to run the comparables in the neighborhood to assist you in coming up with a price that would not only be competitive for the current market, but one that would allow you to obtain multiple applications so you may choose the tenant that is right for you. I would be happy to assist.
It appears the property was listed for sale "unsuccessfully" in 2007 & 2008 for $335,000... Once again "unsuccessfully" in 2012 for $269,900... then rented for &1,890 in Aug 2012 then rented again in Jan 2012 for $1790... I don't see where it has hit the market in any fashion in 2013????? Maybe you need a really good real estate guide??? Call me and I'll get you pointed in the right direction :)
Wow Heather... Lots of folks willing to assist... What is your next step???
Sure Heather... But I am not able to see what home. Contact me so we can set some time aside for your tour.
Why would you rent??? With that score and the current low interest rates (they are giving money away right now @ 3.5%)... BUY!!! No way you can rent for less!!!
Penny sez HI !!! Kathy Brennan too... as a matter of fact we had lunch and you're name came up :)
Sorry Sterling... I can not see the address from this end... 410*599*3738
Hey Sterling... Bob Hefferon here, Penelope's husband :) For some reason the property you are inquiring about isn't displaying on here properly. Give me a call on my cell and I'll get all the details from you and get you in... 410.599.3738. Re/Max Classic
Well Sandi... Looks like you got some great advice... What are you going to do??? let us know.
Why don't you give me a call to discuss all your options...
That journey is up to you to travel... It is entirely up to you!!! But you can do it. You do need to surround yourself with folks that will help you make your trip successful :) A little focus and a plan that will work and you will be getting the keys in no time... Let me know when you would like to start!!!
Ask your Agent... You do have an Agent, don't you???
It can be done :) I have clients that I helped find the perfect match for them. It was not their first choice, but they are happy and are on the mend. Next stop... Home Ownership.. after some credit clean-up :) call and I'll show you how!!!
I have several clients looking in Anna Arundel County right now for that perfect waterfront home... May I show you some of these magnificent homes??? We could assist you in getting the automatic updates directly to your inBox on a daily basis... It can be done :)
Anne Arundel County, Maryland... Chesapeake Bay... Close enough to Baltimore & Washington DC for their culture & activities... Short trips to Philly (2 hrs), New York (3.5 hours) and beyond... I love it here in AA County !!! I have helped several folks in your position... It CAN be done :)
Well a "pro" can weed through all the bull and get your specific requirements to you. do you have a "pro" picked??? I have several clients that are getting daily updates about the homes that come on the market that fit their criteria. I review them each morning and usually we go look at them in the afternoon... When they see the right one, they pull the trigger :) Not that complicated, but it does take a fair amount of commitment and time... Commitment on your part... Time on my part... Lets go shopping!!!
Yes there are... But you would be giving up all your leverage and options for purchase!!! Do Not give up those options for yourself... When you are ready. We will get your loan pre-approval in hand... Then YOU will have all the negotiating power for a purchase option. There are so many homes out there. Even if you need a few months to get approved for a loan it may be better for YOU to hold the power and NOT the landlord...Call and I will explain what I mean...
Not so fast Gail... All the info is right there for Homescom to choose from... they chose the wrong pic... This listing Agent is "good" ;-)
There are plenty of homes that will fit your criteria... My question is where are you getting the funds to do the repairs??? That may be more than the sales price. Do you have the knowledge and skills to pull off a project of that kind??? Lets GO!!!
Allison... It depends on your sales price, the loan you are going to get and your credit score. There are a lot of factors involved. My preferred lenders will do a pre-qualification for you at NO COST so you can see what is possible and what kind of goals you need to set for yourself and the time frames you need to do them in. It may not take as long as you think it will :) :) :)
You are definitely in a tough spot... I would suggest you rent straight up... Then we can have all the leverage in negotiating a purchase when the time is right... What are we talking a few short 12 months from now??? I have helped 4 families with bad credit rent first... We are on a program to clean up the credit and we can taste a Solid home purchase in about 6-8 more months :) :) :)
Well Jeanette, what have you decided to do??? Looks like you have some good choices right here of agents that would love to help you!!!
Hey Leslie... Looks like you got some good info here... Now what are you going to do with it??? Have you chosen someone to be your guide in the process??? When do we start???
Looks like you got some great info... Now what are you going to do with it, Leslie??? How can I help you navigate the waters??? Have you picked a guide yet???
Depends on what you want to do with it in the future... If your going to start out here and move to a bigger one as your life and finances grow... then maybe we hold the condo and rent it out and let the equity build for the future, not to mention the tax breaks :)
Make sure you have the power of knowledge :) then pick a good Realtor, Lender, Title Company team!!! They all need to work together to get you to the settlement table.
Shelly... Hire your own Agent and have them do the contacting for you. Besides any one particular property, your Agent can set up appointments to see several that may fit your personal criteria. In addition, your Agent will prepare your paperwork and make sure your deposit is handled correctly.
What happened to the home??? Do you still own it??? Was it left outside the BK??? Did you let it go to foreclosure??? Did you do a short-sale??? There is much to be talked about... Contact me through here and we can get started. It may take a while to get all your ducks in a row :) But definately do-able !!!
Sure... If you can get past my lender first :) Keep yourself on a tight leash... If there is a "will" there is a way. Good Luck to you. You can do it!!!
I've got one on Dover rd complete with private entrance, living room, kitchen and bath!!! If that one doesn't work, I have helped several clients find homes that either had one and didn't advertise it well or created one in space that easily accomodated the needs... Sometimes just searching and looking at the bedroom configuration of a home will go a long way... how many beds upstairs... how many on the main level... how many in the basement??? We can actually find convertible space over a garage. Sounds like fun :) give me a call and we will go hunting!!!
The Maximum Ammount can be claculated based on credit score to determine the interest rate you will get. Debt to Income ratios and property taxes are all variables to consider. Also if the property has a condo or hoa fees. Mark, it looks like you have had quite a few responses to your question. When would you like to set up an appointment to go see homes that fall within your price parameters???
Easy...Just go to my website...ITS FREE!!! You can put in your own search critera...Price, Location, Beds, Baths, Etc!!!
Well, Mark... Getting the Pre-Qual should be rather easy to do, and free of charge by most lenders. At that time you can compare rates and services. But you do run the risk of hurting yourself if your credit is pulled too many times. Find a good realtor, they will discuss the rates and terms of the lender they are using and you can use that as a general guide. But lets face it... It's all about "trust" !!! You have to be able to trust the lender can actually deliver what they are promising you and not start jerking you around hours before settlement because they can't do what they promised. My lender is extremely competitive in todays marketplace. The important thing is he can actually deliver and get you to closing on time and relatively headache free. You are going to have to pull the trigger sooner, rather than later, in order to get you from Pre-Qual to "PRE APPROVAL" for your loan so we have something to use as leverage in negotiating your offer... If there is anything else I can answer for you, give me a call... There are soooo many variables to that question alone :)
Rashe...What else would you like to know??? Where can I send more information??? I'd be happy to assist :)
Well, Mr Black, if your Realtor works up the comparibles for the type of home in the neighborhood it is located, you will see what the values for the homes are. Lets assume the home is priced right for the neighborhood. When my clients wants me to make a query on their behalf, I do it. It may be a long shot, and I wouldn't make a habit of low-balling to that degree because it is a highly unlikely position to be working from, but I would at least make a phone call to try to find out what position the sellers are in, because we don't know. Maybe we have a short-sale, an estate sale or other drastic circumstances involved. I would then encourage you to look at homes that "DO" fit your pricing criteria, because there are plenty of homes out there for you to see and one of them just may have your name written all over it!!! Let me know if I can help negotiate an offer for you ;-)
All your observations are spot on. But we are out there in cyber-space, and a bit of that comes with the territory. My frustration with this and other sites is when we take the time to start up a conversation by answering a question and the inquisitor stops talking. But there again this is all part of putting it all out there for all to see. If we are smart, we will continue to talk to those we can help. Lets just hope they talk back. Bob:)
Hi Heidi, A year is a long way away and there will be plenty of choices for you at that time. I would suggest to all my Buyer Clients that 90 days prior to when you would like to buy, you should get started. We could get your VA Loan pre-approved so we know exactly what your buying power is. Then I could show you enough homes in your price range in a wide variety of neighborhoods for you to get a feel for what would work best for you guys! If November is your target date, I would suggest looking at homes in September and writing a contract to purchase in October so you could move in by Thanksgiving. Why don't you give me a call so we can discuss the possibilities as well as give you some ideas of what to get done between now and then. A head start in June wouldn't be a bad idea either :) Look forward to it!!!
Nenna, it is customary for the seller or landlord to pay the commission. I hope this has not been an obstacle for you. Are you a landlord having trouble paying the commission or are you a prospective tenant being asked to pay an additional fee for service. Either way I would be happy to assist. Just contact me and we can talk about your specific situation at length. Bob Hefferon
Marie... Lots of detailed questions... If the home is in the right location at the right price and in the right condition, its ownership status should have no bearing on you actually making an offer to purchase. Would you like me to schedule an appointment to see if this home meets your criteria??? I would be happy to help you get into that "right" home :)_
12 Units total with 5 of them scheduled for completion by November!!! That's just 12 weeks away!!! I can also get you registered to recieve an additional $4,000 off your expences... I would love to help :)
This one 3000 sq ft, but it is no longer available. I did a quick search for property under $150k and there are currently over 100 available in AA County alone. I would be happy to help find something that suits your requirements. Let me know how to procede from here!

New on Our BlogDoes it Pay to Remodel Your Home? Steve Cook During the years after the housing crash in 2007, plunging home values erased millions of homeowners’ equity. Unable to refinance or take out home equity loans, homeowners postponed plans to remodel or launch major home improvements. With the arrival of the housing recovery three years ago, equity began to recover. Projects shelved for six years were back on the table, and the remodeling industry boomed....
