In general terms is this the right time

Answer
You betcha. Just heard a financial analyst on a money program detailing the fact that all real estate is local just like politics. Some areas are depressed some are flourishing. However, an investment today will look terrific 10 years from now.

Why is my home price listed way less than market value?

Answer
Because it's an automated system it will not always be correct. It can be hit and miss. To determine a real good estimate of potential sale value you should call a Realtor.

what is 5/1 arm

Answer
It's an adjustable loan with a fixed term of 5 years at the original rate. It then can adjust every year from then on. If you are only going to be in the house for 5 or 6 years it's a good idea. Otherwise take advantage of historical low fixed rates.

How do i know my house is up to code for selling as is?

Answer
It doesn't necessarily have to be up to code. Usually codes are to be followed for any work or construction from present time to the future. In other words, no one can come to your house and make you do anything unless of course there is a reason like condemnation. Anyway, an inspector may point out things that woulsn't meet current code but you're under no obligation to correct.Final thought is this. Sometimes banks won't lend for certain shortcomings which would get picked up by an appraiser. One good example might be a house with 30 AMP electric. They could elect not to lend on the property until there is some kind of upgrade. Good luck!
