How do I find land by section lot and block and how much its worth

Answer

I just loaded the maps on my website, you can find them here... http://www.welcomehomeabq.com/rio-rancho-nm-land-maps/  Honestly... the market for Rio Rancho Land is dismal at the moment and sales are way down.  In 2005 minimum price for a lot, even in one of the "way out" locations, was $6,000.  Today some lots are selling for $500. Don't want to sound all negative, it's just the reality.  Check you tax assessment for value, lately they have been relatively accurate.If you post the Unit, Block, and Lot numbers I can give you a ball park value.Tego

need map to show our home

Answer

Ok... I was thinking about it after posting and realized what's happening. Zillow does not normally index vacant land and they wont add the address until it becomes "real property", meaning a home is on the property.  I suspect that the tax records are not showing improvements or the home was built recently and they have not updated yet.

need map to show our home

Answer

Double check the map pin placement in the Edit page if already posted.  If not listed yet, you will get the option to manually place the map location.  I suspect the La Madera area does not automatically map very well.

Is Seller Being too Demanding?

Answer

Regarding the Inspection... Our contracts here in New Mexico specifically say that the Buyer may choose the inspector even if the seller is paying for it. Honestly, as a seller I wouldn't want to insist on a particular inspector... lot's of liability if the inspector misses something.

Rent to Own Homes

Best Answer

Hi jdsalas46 - Both Lease/Purchase and Real Estate Contract homes are available although at a much more limited supply.  On the Lease/Purchase... most sellers would rather lease or just sell outright, but sometimes homes are offered this way. Homes offered on a Real Estate Contract (Seller Financing) are more available but be prepared for 10%-20% down payment.  We do have the ability to search for these properties in our MLS, if you would like to send you a list let me know.  Tego Venturi - Keller Williams Realty[Email removed by Zillow moderator.

Does a swimming pool add value

Answer

I agree with Pasadenan... a pool is a lifestyle choice and in most cases does not add value equal to the cost of the pool.  With that said, we have a pool and the hours of enjoyment for us and the family have been well worthwhile.

Is there a way to search homes with Seller Financing available?

Answer

Hi Susan,I don't think owner financing is that rare... there is a field in our multiple listing service where we can check if the seller will consider owner financing. However, often a home sitting vacant has a motivated seller and we've seen owner financing offers accepted when the seller didn't offer this type of financing up front. It takes sifting through by your realtor however it's possible. The down payment and terms will be important for the sellers.Good luck! Tracy Venturi
