FINANCING:

> $463/MO, 20% DOWN, 3.684% APR, 30-YR FIXED, NO POINTS:

Above conventional financing is available as of Jan 28, 2015 based on 20% down or a loan amount of $103,120 at

Estimated Monthly Payment including Insurance & Property Tax:
Principal & Interest: $463.05
Home Insurance: $ 51.00 (Based on Current = $610 per year)
Property Tax: $129.00 (2012 due in 2013 = $774.26/half, see below)
Total Monthly Pymt: $643.00

Property Tax payable in 2015 increased to $1,016.50 per half due to a combination of renovations and loss of "Owner Occupied" credit. The new owner's taxes, assuming "Owner Occupied Credit", should be about half way between the $774 per half payable in 2013 and the $1,016 per half payable in 2015, or about $900 per half.

Insurance and Property Tax are included to provide a better comparison of financing options. With 20% down, escrow normally isn't required and these items can be paid semi-annually or annually as preferred.


HOUSE INSPECTION:
Previously completed. No significant issues. Minor issues were due to code changes following construction like current requirement for GFCI protected receptacles and 12 inches of insulation vs the 6-7 inches that existed at time of inspection. These issues were in compliance with code in effect at the time of construction. Although, code changes are "grandfathered" for homes constructed prior to the date of code change and do not require update, Owner has taken corrective action on all items cited in inspection report as "adverse conditions" except a steel door between garage and utility room that would be a adverse cosmetic change.


TERMITE INSPECTION:
Previously completed. No evidence of termites or wood destroying insects. Warranty provided free treatment if problem was found within 90-days of inspection.

Inspection Reports are available for viewing during tour or on request.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
