Buying and Selling a Home

Buying and selling a home in this real estate market is not for the faint of heart!

In today’s fluctuating financial climate, there are many areas that one needs to examine before they buy or sell a home.

For instance, if you’re thinking of buying a foreclosed house, you must ask not only the price, but about the financing that is offered, and what shape the property is in. Often, but not always, the most recent owner has left the home in disrepair. But it is a reality and you must make an intelligent decision as to whether or not the home is worth fixing up. Foreclosed homes can be a bargain or a burden; look at lots of properties and consider getting your own appraisal before deciding to buy.

Be aware of supply and demand whether buying or selling a home. Right now, the supply is much higher than the demand. Buyers are waiting to see if housing prices and interest rates have bottomed out. If you wish to sell your home, you must make decisions about what you have to offer as compared to other homes in your area. Creativity as well as price is the guiding force here as other sellers may be willing to hold a mortgage, pay closing costs, or include upgrades.

Buying and selling a home in this real estate market is tough, to say the least. Learning as much as you possibly can about the process is imperative. Make sure you know the pros and cons of any decision you make about buying or selling. Talk to us for advice and suggestions on your specific buying or selling needs.

    10/27/11PaulForm one VB b-baller to another, I just came acsors your site and find it interesting on a number of accounts which I will explain after telling you a little about myself:I went to Van Buren and played for Marv Kessler right behind you in ’64. I watched you until my senior year, after you graduated, when Marv put me on the team and made me the center for Stuie Klein, Richie LoGalbo, etc.I went to Queens College and played there, then in Israel afterwards for the Israeli National Team.Afteer two years I went to GW law school and eventually ended up in Florida where I live to this day.In 1997 I had both hips replaced at the same time, spending a month in the hospital, and have been on them since-a few times the left one has dislocated, once requiring emergency surgical repair.So, your pieces about VB, Shannon, and hoops in general are very interesting and probably as close as I’ll come to a memoir about my playing days.Secondly, your hip issues also make the blog relevant for me. I can’t play ball two bad hips aren’t a good way to stay upright and while I never could run like the wind these days I can’t even run.I haven’t been through all your well written pieces, but I remember that you boxed too. Did you continue at Harvard ?-if it’s in the archives I guess I’ll get to it as I read through them.By the be, as I was in SP, I was younger than everyone else on the ’64 team and have had no contact with them at all except that I ran into Stuie Klein once here in Fort Lauderdale years ago, we played some ball together, and I learned at the time that he was at Northern Arizona State, maybe as an assistant coach.Well, I don’t usually write to people on blogs, but keep this up I’m sure it reaches others like me and puts context to life-sports and otherwise. By the way my younger son played soccer, just graduated Amherst College, was an English major, studied at Oxford, and wants to establish himself as a writer. If you are interested, just Google I-95 and you can read his award winning memoir of life in Florida, which is much more eloquent than anything I can put on paper.All the bestLarry Zolot
