What is going on with the estimated value of homes ??

Answer
If you look on other sites the value will also be different. Much of it depends on their softwares analytical programming, some of which take into consideration on and off market tax recordings. Ultimately, the only way to have a more precise number is to have an agent meet with you at your home, so that they are able to take into consideration the condition of your home and neighborhood. My advise is not to get caught up with what a website tells you and to call one of us for a valuation. I hope this helps, Rocky G.H. Hawrysz

how likely is it for seller to pay closing costs?

Answer
Currently we are in a seller's market.  A seller's market is defined as a Real Estate Market where sellers are receiving more than one offer for their home.Asking for closing cost is likely to weaken your offer.  If an offer is equal to your offer and the other buyer (competing with you) is not asking for closing cost, whose offer do you think the seller is going to choose?There however are several different ways to write offers.  Ultimatley you want to write an offer that is the most palatable to the seller without compromising your monetary qualifications. If you need closing cost and want to take advantage of current market I would suggest you keep trying, but while you do so you may want to be saving as much as you can.I hope this helps,RockyRocky G.H.

where can i find loan to buy and remodel home?

Answer
There are a few options in this arena like FHA 203K and Conventional programs for a home owner occupied. These loans allow a buyer to make improvements (carpet, paint, roof, appliances, cabinets & more) up to a certain limit, how it relates to the after-improvement appraised value. There are also non-owner occupied/investor options available as well.  These types of loans are a terrific way to purchase a like-new (after the improvements) home at a low price.  Typically, these are bundled in one loan and after the close of escrow, the work begins.  The lender works closely with you to make sure all improvements are made after the close. The caveat is that you do pay interest on the improvements over the course of the loan.  This may or may not be desirable depending on the circumstances. However, with a bit more information, a lender or an agent can provide the necessary guidance if he or she has the experience. "The math will set you free."  Also one more tip.  Not every lending institution has this capability. Equally not every mortgage consultant or Real Estate agent has the necessary experience. As a result, it is critical that you work with both a highly qualified Real Estate Broker/Agent and Lender to have success and a good experience.I hope this helps!Rocky G.H.

The house on our court has been on the market for over a month, but Zillow says not for sale. Why?

Answer
Thanks for your question.  Some website don't have a direct relationships with our local listing service (metrolist) and as a result, occasionally there are discrepancies in what's advertised. In addition, if the home was entered prior to the MLS listing, the Realtor has more control over when the home comes on or off the website. As a realtor, special attention must be paid when releasing the home on market and status changes that go with marketing a home. If I can answer any additional questions or if you have an interest in seeing how much your home can fetch on todays market, let me know - I'm here to help!
