hickory nc homes for sale: Home Buyers: You Can Ask for Anything in Your Offer... - 07/27/10 03:16 PM
Just don't expect to get everything you ask! You might have heard somewhere that it's a "buyer's market" (it's a whole other post as to whether that's actually true or not). If the sellers have to sell, then it stands to reason that you should be able to get great deals, right? Well, the answer is it depends on what your idea of a "great deal" really is. You see, for the most part, seller's and their listing agents have priced the home for today's real estate market. That is, the price has already been adjusted to reflect today's value. So, (9 comments)

Yes, you heard me right. If you're a first time home buyer and you're interested in buying a home in the Catawba county, NC area, I can get you an additional $14900 of funding if you purchase a local foreclosed property.
