Jessica, Not sure if you have been following the subject of the proposed cell towers in our area. One in particular is in my area of Tucker at Brockett Elementary. Just wondering if you have any information about what type of loss in property value we can expect if the deal is finalized? We are located several blocks away and have spoken to many neigbhors who are concerned. The school would have a 150' tower which will reach higher than our treeline, a 60' x 60' fenced base which will be labeled as containing hazardous materials and a 20' utility vehicle access road that will run from Brockett Road, alongside the school ending at the back of the property where the treeline of the wooded area begins. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Stop-Brockett-Cell-Towers/
I'm frequently asked what the differences are between the types of sales that are prevalent in our community in today's real estate market. Hopefully this breakdown will help. Fair Market Sales: A. Typically the easiest to find, finance and close. B. Most Realtors are well versed in the fair market process C. Properties are often not vacant D. Owner may be willing to make repairs Foreclosure: A. Financing may be hindered by property condition - may require a renovation loan B. May be damaged by previous owner C. Usually sold "as is" D. Prices tend to be lower E. More room for price negotiation than short sales F. REO companies may be willing to pay closing costs G. REO companies want things to move swiftly - they don't like contingencies H. Buyer may be subject to per diem fees if he/she is responsible for a delayed closing Short Sales: A. Listing price may not have been approved by the lender prior to listing B. Will require more time to secure contract acceptance - can be as long as 3-6 months or more C. Just because a Seller says yes to a purchase offer doesn't mean that the Buyer has a good contract. The third party may not accept the buyer's offer or counter the offer. D. The Buyer shouldn't fall in love with the property. There are numerous things that can go wrong. E. Financing is similar to fair market financing F. Not always vacant HAPPY HUNTING!
