Are you looking for a house but cant find one in your price range on the seacoast? This is actually a condo that lives like a single family house because you have a large yard that is just for this unit, where you can have a garden, pool, fence it in, use it for pets, etc. Great location on a quiet street with very little traffic only 7 miles to downtown Portsmouth! Kitchen has been recently updated, newer appliances, newer water heater and newer roof. Tastefully updated two bedroom condo with one and one half baths. Open concept living and kitchen area, deck and lovely limited common yard means it belongs to the whole association but only you can use it. A place for your pets to run or your children can play or you can have a garden or fire pit! Front farmers porch and full basement that could possibly be converted to additional living space (has a heating zone already in the basement) Two off-street parking spaces. Low Condo ($150/mnth) fee covers master insurance, water bill, and management fees. Quiet neighborhood close to shopping, beaches and commuter routes. Tenant occupied, so I need 24-48 hours notice for other showings.

Beautiful woodwork, gorgeous hard wood floors and a large farmers porch. Rich wood accents throughout, showing the craftsmanship of an era gone by. Den/Library features a beachstone fireplace and coffered ceiling, with some newer built-ins to add to the convenience of today's life style. Throughout the property there is a nice merger of the original architecture, with modern touches. Second level has 4 spacious bedrooms and an office. And if necessary, a walk up attic could be finished for even more space. Just off the mud room is a hot tub with a bathroom near-by. Attached over-sized garage offers plenty of space and has an unfinished walk-up for storage or could be finished. Detached carriage house was converted to finished space in the 1980's, so it could use some up dating. Very nice salt water in-ground pool and over-sized shed for storage of garden tractor and tools. Wired for back up generator. A lot of house for the price!

Have you heard the term ďearnest moneyĒ but really arenít sure what it means? Once you have found the perfect home and are all set to make an offer, thereís one more step that you need to take. Thatís to make a deposit on the home you want to buy. This is known as an ďearnest money deposit.Ē  


The Purpose Of The Deposit


The deposit shows the seller that youíre serious about buying the home. Itís a measure that allows the seller to have some faith in you as a buyer that youíre truly moving forward with your decision; youíre ready as a buyer to make the financial commitment. This deposit allows the deal to begin on a solid basis without much question. 


Is The Deposit Required Legally To Buy A Home?


From a sellerís perspective, a deposit keeps a buyer from changing their mind. If there is a significant amount of money involved, the seller sees the deposit as a way to keep the buyer locked in. This makes it easier for sellers to accept an offer. 


How Much Is Expected For An Earnest Money Deposit?


These deposits donít quite have a standard amount. The general rule is that they range from 1% of the home price up to 5%. The more expensive of a home thatís being purchased, the larger the earnest money deposit should be. In some cases, the seller may even ask for a certain amount of a deposit to ensure that buyers are serious. How much money you pay at once is often negotiable. You may be able to pay part of the money at one time and the other part at a later date.


New Construction Can Require Large Deposits


New construction homes can require large earnest money deposits- up to half of the purchase price of the home. This is because the construction costs need to be paid upfront and the bank wants proof that the units being constructed with loan money are being sold to buyers who can pay for the home. 


New construction homes are often customized as well. It would be detrimental to a developer to make special changes to a home only for a buyer to walk away. 


Getting The Deposit Refunded


As with everything in real estate, youíll have a contract. If you donít follow the terms of the contract, you risk losing your earnest money deposit. Two main reasons for buyers to walk away are a flopped home inspection or financing that falls through. Read your contracts carefully. Sellers sometimes state that deposits are nonrefundable after a certain number of days. 


You need to be sure that you are covered as a buyer in the purchase and sales agreement. If you back out of a home purchase without good reason like a contingency included in the agreement) you could be out of luck when it comes to getting your deposit back.
