Buying a new construction house

Answer
Agreed!  although dual or limited agency CAN work, it can be a slippery slope and makes sense to get your own representation especially because you can't find that this builder has a web presence or know nothing of their reputation.  At a minimum, do some more digging about the builder before taking the plunge.  Good luck!

Best offer on multiple offer house

Answer
I agree with Sebastian.  I am not surprised you are in a multiple offer situation in Carmel.  It is becoming rare to find below market value homes here and when they come available, investors and retail buyers jump.  Best of luck.

update:Sell His/hers and Mine..

Answer
This is a case where the experts can truly help.  If I were in this situation, I would meet with a couple of really good realtors and contractors to assess fix-up value and true cost of preparing your wife's home to sell.  It's amazing what a price-conscious contractor can do with much less than one might think, especially those who have experience flipping properties. If the numbers still don't make sense, then I would speak to a real estate attorney who could advise on the possible ramifications of doing a short sale and/or just letting the house go to foreclosure.  Even after a sale, banks can still place a judgment on your wife for up to 10 years and that may affect your plans as well.  I hope this helps!
