What buyers look for in a new home... - 01/29/08 03:51 PM
In my market (Queens, NY) space is at a premium. A typical lot size might be 20X100. And what's worst many homes do not have a garage, many don't have a driveway. So parking can be as important as the house it self. Nationally number one most desired feature is... central air conditioning, followed by: oversized garage, walk in closet in master bedroom (haven't seen too many of thouse here), backyard/play-area, cable/satelite TV ready, high speed internet access, separate showers in main bath, patio and fencing. Luxury is becoming standard can you afford it? (2 comments)
Here is some info regarding short sales. First of all what is a short sale? Otherwise known as "short pay-off", short sale is a transaction in which a Lender agrees to accept less than is owed, to permit a sale of a property upon which it holds a mortgage. The lender MUST be convinced that it makes monetary sense to agree to the Short Sale. The transaction is, conditional upon getting the Lender's approval/consent to this "short sale". The bank will typically want to see an Appraisal, List of proposed Closing Costs, Financial Statement of Seller, Pay-stubs, bank statements, tax returns, "Hardship" (3 comments)
