Yes, any local agent is your best source of information--contact any realty office(s) and inquire, or contact any local Trulia contributor(s) directly and ask--you may want to consider interviewing a few agents and choosing the one you like best to help with your search.... more
I would be happy to help you. I could set you up with a search to let you know of homes for rent as they come on the market. If you would like you can send me an e-mail with your price range and time frame to move in and I will find you a home to rent, possible rent to own.
I don't know why, but many of the homes listed on sites like Trulia
and others, don't carry correct information about homes that are
not on the market. I have no complaints about the information
they provide about homes that are currently listed because they
pull that information straight from the brokers. But homes they
show just for neighborhood information, often contain errors.
If you need information about a home, feel free to phone.

If you are considering purchasing a newly constructed home in a PUD, planned unit development it's unlikely that you'll be able to find a builder that is willing to discount their product. Since they ave a commitment to those people that have bought previously to not devalue their homes by discounting more recent construction. Many builders will offer other incentives to attract buyers without angering other owners. Lease backs, favorable interest rated, discounted or free upgrades etc. help new buyers by offering them more for less in this way.
We recommend that before making a commitment, you visit, collect information and stuty all of the builders offerings in your location. In this way you'll be able to compare the products and be prepared to negotiate based on your accurate knowledge background.
AND, you will find yourself in a much better position by working via your own personal agent, as opposed to the builder's sales representative.
Huh? Your question makes no sense.
The reasonable percent of listed price is whatever it takes to adjust the price so it's competitive with other houses. And in line with what039;s recently sold. It could be 0%; it could be 25%. Point is: You need to know the comps. Then you make your offer based on that, not based on some percent--reasonable or not--of the listing price.
So what if it's $30 per square feet more expensive than other homes. You say "comparable." But does that take into consideration all the factors going into a comp? Not just bedrooms and bathrooms. Not just overall square footage, or size of the lot. Not just the age or the condition of the property. Not just whether the property's near a highway, underneath a flight path, or something else. Unless you're a builder, forget price per square foot. (Some here will disagree with me on that, but there are way too many factors affecting price that aren't reflected in price per square foot.)
You've overcomplicating things. Forget some set price reduction. Forget price per square foot. Determine what the house is worth, based on comps. Then pay no more than that. Probably offer less. Your Realtor can help you with that strategy.
Hope that helps.... more
Thanks for the question.
Trulia's search capabilities are not nearly as detailed as you'll find on other web sites. Trulia is a data aggregator, and they pull their information from a variety of sources. Many of those sources are inaccurate, out-dated or otherwise misleading. I'm not suggesting that Trulia is intentionally misrepresenting properties and their status. It just simply isn't the top-line data source that professional real estate brokers, appraisers and assessors use to enter and gather property-specific information.
The best online source in our area is MIBOR. That's where agents and brokers first enter their listing information. It's immediately available, and reflects the minute-by-minute activity in the marketplace.
Lastly, I'd encourage you to find a Buyer's Agent whom you trust to help in your search. As agents and brokers, we have access to even more detailed search information and criteria within MIBOR than are accessible to non-MIBOR members. (The BLC® - often referred to as the MLS - is built, maintained and wholly-owned by the Broker members.)
Good luck in your search!

You should try and get some kind of comps. Then factor in any repairs the building will need. Once you havean idea I would ceratin offer at least 10% less and see what happens. You should also figure out the monthly costs and income. Be sure you know what it will cost to own and be sure to allow for unrented units.... more
"Reasonable" is a subjective term. You may offer $149,000, and the seller might be offended. Are you buying as an investment or as an owner-occupant? If it is an investment...are you flipping? holding? long-term or short-term? What are the terms of your financing? What are the values in the neighborhood? Think about the answers to these questions and base your offer on what the property is worth to you.

I usually suggest staying within 10% of list price not to insult a seller, however, the offer should be based on comparable properties and if the home has been on the market 2 years it could be really overpriced. 10% less could still be too much. Without more information on the home it would be hard to give you a proper answer. Is in in Indianapolis or surrounding city? Last time I checked the list price to sales price was about 96%. I would be happy to research and provide comparable properties if you have an address or MLS #.

Talk to your agent, they can't tell you but they can guide you along and help make suggestions by what other homes have sold for and how long those home have been on the market.
The question to ask is have you been pre-approved to let them know you are serious buyer?
