Is it a good time to buy a condo by the beach for res or second home in Lauderdale by the sea Fl?

Answer

If you are interested in purchasing a home while prices are still relatively low, then now if a good time to buy.  The "Fiscal Cliff" and holiday season are having little effect on this hot market, in my experience.  Inventory levels continue to be at record lows and prices have been slowly climbing in key areas like Lauderdale By The Sea for over a year.Chad Gray PA, RealtorLuxury Living Fort LauderdaleColdwell Banker Residential Real Estate

Kitchen remodel Question.

Answer

The return on investment (ROI) for a kitchen remodel varies by location.  For example, if you live in a neighborhood where updated kitchens are the standard, then you may need to catch up to the trend to avoid your home being passed over by prospective buyers.Also, if you plan to live in the home years after the remodel, then the important factor is that you enjoy your updated kitchen.If you are thinking about selling your home, then your best bet in getting a more accurate estimation on your ROI, contact a local real estate agent that you trust.Chad Gray PA, RealtorLuxury Living Fort LauderdaleColdwell Banker Residential Real Estate.

what is my coop worth

Answer

If you are seriously thinking about selling your home, the best way to determine the value is by contacting a Realtor you trust and requesting a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).  A CMA takes into consideration similar homes that have recently sold in your area and those intended to be bought or sold.Chad Gray PA, RealtorLuxury Living Fort LauderdaleColdwell Banker Residential Real Estate.

Can you buy a house that has been foreclosed but not yet on the market

Answer

There is the old saying that for the right price, everything is for sale.  With that said, you could try making an offer.  Beware, however, that your offer might not be welcomed.  If you choose this route, your best bet would be to use a Realtor as a neutral third party who can work towards protecting your interests.Best of luck!Chad Gray PA, RealtorLuxury Living Fort LauderdaleColdwell Banker Residential Real Estate.

Answer

The short answer to your question about if a person can short sell their house because they are too upside down is no.  Your lender has the final say as to whether or not they will accept less for the home than what is owed.Chad Gray PA, RealtorLuxury Living Fort LauderdaleColdwell Banker Residential Real Estate.
