Does anyone know the right offer to make on a brand new consruction townhouse in Lynn MA


You should always offer what you and your agent think the home is worth regardless of the asking price. Just make sure you are working with an agent who actually does business in this area. In Lynn home values fluctuate street by street and coming up with a price can be tougher than in a more suburban town. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Best of luck.

How much should I pay for a CMA?


Most companies including mine do not charge for this service.But check with your attorney to make sure you do not need an apprasail.

Are there more foreclosures coming on the market?


Yes, their will be more and more foreclosures and shorts coming on the market. As the others wrote the banks have lot of inventory and will be liquidating it. More and more people are also being educated on short sales and the advatanges they may have for distressed home.

Home Loans? To use a Mortgage Broker or my Bank?


I find mortgage brokers with in house underwriting typically are the best. The reason I prefer them over small local banks are they tend to offer more programs. Small banks and local credit unions tend to have excellent customer service and truly value their clients. Either way these are the best to choices. The large banks can be tuff to work with since they typically underwrite their loans out of state and tend to take longer to close deals.
