I have listed all the new and updated things that make our home unique .
I wouldnt really be concerned about it.....when or if you sell, your Realtor is going to do a comparative market analysis on your home and your buyer's agent will do the same.....Zillow is a great guide, however, they have not learned how to separate neighborhoods and how to itemize upgrades etc. You can add the list to the remarks section of your home, however,I would like to remind you, these are public boards.....everyone can read what you post.....I am still an advocate of some privacy inside our homes.
I am a Veteran of the Iraq War. Where do I start in inquiring about a VA House Loan?
This is a great place to start http://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/Many lenders can help you out also, but I would suggest start your research here.Hope this helps. And thank you, for your service! You rock!
Ways to improve my efficiency.Handful of questions. Don Cato Realty
what are you looking for here? Efficiency in what area?
How can I correct erroneous information in Zillow?
Go in and claim the home and update any information you feel is incorrect. If you have had it professionally appraised, put in the remarks section the date it was appraised and for how much (if you want this to be public that is)I hope that helps.You live in a beautiful part of this state! Enjoy
Where to get mortgage broker..same state or state to buy a house
You could do both. Also I see no reason for you to 'shy away from an in house lender' Many of those lenders are excellent and held accountable by that firm.Most large firms that I know, like Keller Williams Realty etc will have an in house lenderTim's response is good, there are issues on the coast and you want to make sure that your lender is capable of handling them in time for closing.Best of luck to you on your purchase
Finding a house with a garage near Chapel Hill
Monthly rentals are difficult, you can find companies though....however you will pay a lot for a monthly rather than a six month to year contract. Try going through a reputable firm, feel free to email me and I can give you names of rental companies....however remember you are paying a higher fee for short term rentals.
have tried to update house profile especially appraisal sq, footage. doesnn't display current update
not sure what you are doing. To make changes, 'claim the house' Once you claim it(if you are the owner or Realtor) then you can go in and make changes to it. try to be accurate . If you are putting in information from an appraisal, put the date the appraisal was done. Appraisals prices do not last, makes sense, right, other homes in the area sell and those sales affect prices. If you still are having trouble, flag it and some one from Zillow should help.
foreclosed church property
I would assume prior to being foreclosed on, they had the house on the market, at that time they would have filled out a disclosure form, on it they should have filled out whether they did owe back taxes. You can also check county records and always use an attorney to close so they can search the title.
should you buy a house close to power lines
Depends on the home, neighborhood etc. You can also have the electric company come out and checck the EMF etc on it. Don't rule it out, but do know that on re-sale, you will have buyers who will not look at it because it is near the power lines.If you hear them crackling, you might want to look elsewhere :)
What can be done when information used to determine a home's value is not correct?
Sounds like a wonderful home. Are you going to sell it? Probably not at this time. If you were going to sell it, you would probably pay an appraiser to find out how much it is worth in todays market or ask a Realtor to spend some time working through a more in-depth comparative market analysis to come up with a current market value. What Zillow is doing is calling it a 'zestimate' based on information it has gathered from third parties to come up with just that, an estimate of value, like a guesstimate but based on more GENERAL accurate information. However what Zillow can't do right now, is define neighborhoods,quality of homes etc. So please go with a LOCAL professional to help you out. In the meantime, claim your home and in the remarks section put what upgrades you have,.........if you want everyone to see that...remember everyone can access that information, though. Some homeowners prefer privacy over what Zillow or other sites like this do.They will remove pictures etc.
