Offer without a Buyer's Agent

Answer

Keep it simple. Ask your attorney to write up the offer and help you. There are a lot of forms and you will need to understand all the details and implications. Good luck in finding your home.

When Should I Get A Lawyer?

Answer

Great question.  Most people get a lawyer after the offer is accepted; however, a few of my clients wanted to get them involved in the offer stage.  John KenneyCentury 21 Commonwealth

maximize selling price

Answer

The best way to find out what your house is currently worth is to have a couple of the top local realtors come by and perform a market analysis on your property. This will not cost you anything and at the same time will give you some great information about your house. Best of luck John Kenney

how do historical protection restrictions on a deed affect the market value of a property?

Answer

Depending not the type of restriction you have will determine how this will impact the market value.  In general, these restrictions will turn off some buyers and at the same time will turn on some other buyers.  If you are looking to sell, you are best to talk about how this helps to preserve the beauty and historical value of the home.  John Kenney

list home process

Answer

Sellers will usually interview three local agents then pick the one who they believe will get the job done.  Ideally, if you have a friend who recently sold, you may want to ask them who they used and see if they might be a good fit for you.Best of luck.

Can you purchase homes if you're on working visa but plan to stay in the long run in MA?

Answer

Great question.  The best person to direct this question to is a mortgage broker.  I do know they are very detailed about income and income sources.  As long as that other person pulls in enough income and has an appropriate debt to equity ratio, this should be fine.  There is a lot they look at but as a starting point, this is worth further inquiries.  Please contact your local mortgage broker and if you don't have one, I would be happy to provide a name or two.

Confused by Homesteps timeline. Do I need to submit a mortgage application already??

Answer

Great question.  If you have stated in the P&S that the application deadline is tomorrow then yes, all the paperwork needs to be submitted.  If you do not meet this deadline, you basically strip your mortgage contingency away.  Please let me know if you have any further questions.  In order to retain your contingencies, you need to meet deadlines or request and be granted an extension (if needed).John Kenney

would like to know what my house value is

Answer

The best way to get the value of your property is to ask three area agents to value your property for you.  It is important to have the professional look inside and see what updates you may have done to the property.  This is almost always a free service to home sellers even if they are not looking to sell.  Best of luck.
