The homes in this community are only 9 to 10 years old, so still fairly new. This development is a collection of 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes, and single family homes. There is a pool, playground, tennis and basketball courts and a shuttle bus to the train station which is very convnient. Homes here have sold between $335,000 and $435,000 within the last 6 months. Please let me know if you would like more information.... more
The one bath will be an obstacle. Buyers typically want 2 baths, with 1.5 being a minimum. The lack of a garage will eliminate a few buyers. The lack of a second bath will elimate more buyers. You will need to price to compensate for this. Buyers are out there, but they are picky.....because they can be.... more
Sturwood Hamlet is a good townhouse community. The townhouses there are a bit older than others within the Lawrenceville area. Also, the location is not as desirable as that of others (e.g. near the Interstate). And there are three levels in each of the townhomes. Alot of people don't care for walking up and down that many flights of stairs. (Similar to a single family split level home. These homes are also less expensive then a colonial or a ranch style home).
That said, however, I believe they are a great value for the price.... more
That really depends on your financial situation. You have to consider what equity you have in the condo & if it makes sense to sell it at this time.Issues to consider: Do you need the proceeds from the condo to purchase something else & if you don't sell can you qulaify for another mortgage on another property if you rent it out I would suggest speaking to a mortgage person & have them review your financial situation before planning a move. If it turns out that you can't carry 2 mortgages or don't have enough equity to sell at this time then it might make sense to rent it out or wait a bit until you have some extra cash in reserve before you plan on moving... more
You really should contact a realtor who knows the area to assist you. I work the Hamilton market a lot and know it very well. Please feel free to call me for an estimate of how much it should be listed.
25% down is the national average, have local agent give you a CMA. Also many condo developments are not on the HUD approved list so have to go conventional loan not FHA-problem! talk locally good luck!... more
Beatlelovr: There are all the usual national players in the area. Each has it's own unique "style" and corporate slant. In the end, they all sell real estate. There are also several strictly local firms, some of whom dominate a portion of the market.
Each office is a composition of agents, some friendly, some not, so fitting in, even in a national franchise, can be very different, office to office.
I've worked in several different offices over the years but I am completely happy with Keller Williams and would not leave. To be honest, others have not always felt it that way but the office does have a lot of people who have stayed around for a long time.
I suggest you talk to a few managers and see how their office works and how that manager will treat you, given your situation. When I started, I had a manger that absolutely refused to deal with me, as a part timer. Another manager at another office of the same chain was completely happy to work with me. I still think that she is one of the best but, again, others don't warm up to a specific personality type, hers included.
My present manager is Pete LaBriola and you will be hard pressed to find a better guy.
Lots of luck.

The FHA limit is 440k for a SFR. 3.5% down payment.
If you go conventional, the loan limit is the same, but 20% down is recommened. If your not going to put the 20% down, go FHA.

Your question is a bit open ended & esp. in this current market specifics are required.
Mainly location & condition relate to the answer & price of course, which is derived from the former 2.
If what youre' really asking is should you sell now or wait.........then I will tell you that with all my expereince rolled up .........If ANYONE can tell you exactly ( and honestly) with the given market situation & the future trends when the best time to do so in the future may be.............they really don't have a clue.
From an investment point of view, the best way to compute gains/losses is to calculate you own carrying costs & determine a sell now vs 2 yrs from now & decide based on that.
Again, without specifics & speaking purely from buyers interest right now.............listing now & selling before early nov may be better.
We are seeing the buyer pool shrinking , esp. in the lower price ranges, as lending standards tighten up & some of these buyers are priced out.
Give it your best shot.........the condition of the home is very important.........there are other things to consider before you put the home on the market.............hire a really smart realtor, interview at least 3 & go with the one who can provide you with measureable efforts & references to follow up with.
Don't pick one for the mailing you get or the "I'm the best" speel or your 'local expert'
Interview then first. Call the references & ask for verifiable marketing efforts.........the internet is great......paper advertising is out......buyers mostly use the internet to find homes.
Worst case scenario..........if you don't even end up getting 1 offer then you at least have a realistic feedback/experience to work on for next year or later.
Good luck.... more
