It is a Durham address, but is essentially in Chapel Hill (off 40 between 15-501 and 54) in Weston Downs.

$475K - 3,920 SF, 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms. Entire house was re-painted, re-carpeted, ceiling fans added, linoleum replaced with tile, wrought iron balusters on stair well, new landscaping, new blinds throughout.





Pictures are from before the renovation where everything was cleaned or replaced. Will have professional pics later this week. Would take $460K from a TDubber before broker gets involved.

He's a buddy of mine as well. I'm a commercial broker, but he assists me on my residential plays. I like the insulation of a residential broker between my license and a buyer.

What's the combined income requirement for a couple to buy a $475k house?

No clue. Paid cash for it.

I'd guess $150-200K combined.

^^ Not a set in stone answer. Based on interest rates, credit score, current monthly debt, and down payment funds available.

For example if you can put 20% down and have excellent credit a 30 year loan right now would run you roughly $2260/mo. Another example is if you can only come up with $47,500 for a down payment you are stuck with about $210 in PMI and your monthly payment rises to about $2640. That also assumes excellent credit.

A quick calculation based on 30 years at 3.875%, 1% taxes, $50k down payment, and a $500/mo car payment would mean you would need to make around $110k/year to qualify.

Thanks hershculez.

Mine is priced at $120/SF...new one hit the market in the same hood with negligible upgrades at $131/SF, so my house is priced to move. I guess the improvements may cost $15K, but the delta in pricing would be closer to $50K if I put them in (hardwoods in den, tray ceiling in dining room and master - no other substantial differences)

Thanks. Slow part of the year. If it doesn't go to contract by year's end, I'll also market it for lease (2 year minimum and no pets)

We are seeing signs the market is slowing. I think it's due to election, but it could just be a longer trend of it settling down some.

I know...traffic has been slower than expected and it is likley both the market slowing and the election.

I'll leave it listed through end of year, then offer it for lease for 16-18 months and re-list March 1 if it hasn't moved by then. No point in lowering the price now, as I won't be able to get more when i re-list it in March based on history visible on Zillow.

Isn't this just a seasonal slump that happens every year? Thought it was conventional wisdom that it is much easier to sell a house in the spring/summer vs. fall/winter.

^ you are correct.

That said, I bought this in foreclosure, got access late September and got all work done within 10 days. I wanted to test the market, as I've already paid the carrying costs (excluding utilities) through the end of the year. Starting next year, it will cost me about $800/month to carry the house between utilities, property taxes and insurance.

Track builder - keeps it simple and boxy, but nice finishes throughout, extremely efficient and well priced.

I replaced all carpet throughout the house. I don't think I'd see a return on investment for installing new hardwood.

47k is a great deal for a house in CH. You should take the deal Justin.

I took my house off the market and will re-list it late February. If you wanted to buy it, I'd discount it by the realtor's fees...bought it as a foreclosure and put about $22K into it - new paint, carpet, LED lights throughout, a few ceiling fixtures, replaced most of the fridge parts, replaced linoleum with tile, had grout cleaned, replaced garage door motor, landscaping, etc.

They are nice houses - just going to wait to re-list for the spring market. Carrying cost is low at the moment, but I'll be excited to unload it. Happy to show it to you.

Crazy thing is she could have fire sold it and still made $20K. Instead, I'll get some nice upside and pay for my go kart.

How does one "fire sale" and at what point would they know to "pull the trigger"

She only owed like $330K...I have it listed at $469,900. She could have sold for $375K and sold it instantly, even with the current condition, as everything was cosmetic (house was only 3 years old).

They know to pull the trigger when they get served with papers saying the house is going to be auctioned in foreclosure at a future date. She then gets a notice when it gets sold at the court house, as well as a new notice each time the bid was upset (I was the 3rd upset bidder, so she had at least 60 days to sell it or get out). If you sold it $100K below market in a neighborhood where the last 2 homes sold in 4 days and 9 days at the retail number, I think she could have moved it even in November with the election and slow down of the cycle.

See this is where I can learn a thing or two or 10. Why wouldn't everyone do that if they are in that pickle especially with their credit score and future life at stake?
I am wondering just in case this could ever happen to me or someone I know and I could actually KNOW what in the world I am talking about.

Blows my mind. She has graduated from law school, but was working at the Apple Store. I think she was probably embarrassed about her situation and had gotten so far behind on payments, she couldn't fathom selling it. Also, it was her home, so she may have tried to hold on for as long as she could. By realizing she could have made money, she also could have been intimidated by commissions related to selling the house. The house was filthy - had to throw out parts of the fridge and replace it, replaced all carpet, repainted house, spruced up landscaping, etc. I dropped $22K bringing it back to selling condition.
