What area are you looking for? You should probably contact a Commercial / Land Realtor for that info, as it typically is not in the MLS.
An agent doesn't have to live in the same community as the home for sale, anymore than a teacher or policeman have to live in the community that they serve. As long as they have knowledge of the area, what homes sell for there, and what is going on in the community, there's a good possiblility that they can help you.Don't call an agent just because he lives in the area. He/ she may be only part time or sell a couple of houses a year. Ask your friends for referrals and then intereview 3 agents. You'll be able to tell who knows the area best.Best of luck.Linda
By clicking on the link, I see that the home is still for sale. If you want to know the name of the present owner, all that information is public record at www.wakegov.com.
the only thing I get is a widget that says "get this widget" which directs me right back to the same page. Same thing for the "mortgage IQ Quiz' widget. thought it was just me, glad to see I'm not loosing it!.
I've lived here for 8 years, moved here from California after visiting my sister here for 20 years. I knew the area pretty well from those visits so it was an easy decision to move here. Have loved it ever since. We have a lot of people relocating to the area from all over, so you wouldn't be the only "newbie'. I'm a realtor, so if you'd like more infor, contact me.
Is this an auction by a real estate company or a foreclosure auction? Either way, I would contact the name given on the letter. If it's a real estate auction company, they may be able to help you, or refer you to someone who can represent you if you'd like to bid on the house.
Many things besides size determine value of a home. Is the home the same age? Same size lot? What about amenities? Was that home remodeled? Did they add a bathroom, a pool, granite countertops, etc?Was the home sold recently so that there is a more recent value? What do the tax records suggest?
Does it have a price on it? Is there contact information listed? If so, call the agent. You can always look it up on other websites like Realtor.com. They only list homes that are currently for sale, not under contract.
Ask your friends, neighbors, family etc for names of people they've used with success. Referrals are the number one source of business for a good Realtor. Then go about "interviewing" them as the above agents have mentioned. Good luck!
The old saying that the 3 most important words in real estate are location, location, location is certainly true. All real estate is local, just like the weather.As most of the other commenters have mentioned, the national forcast is for a negative appreciation. But there are still pockets of the market that will remain stable, and maybe go up a little. No one has a crystal ball though.
