homes for sale in Huntsville AL; Huntsville AL MLS listings

While we are already getting calls, the house at 111 Tine is still available. With interest rates still very low and home prices just beginning to rise you can purchase for much less than rent. This home does qualify for the Federal Rural Housing Development no down payment loan program.

At the $165,000 list price, no down payment and a 3.5% mortgage monthly payments will be in the $850 range. 

To get started we need to get a loan pre-approval to present to the seller with any offer we decide to make. You will need a credit score of around 580 to qualify. If your score isn't quite there yet one of the lenders at the bottom of the page at this link can help you get the scores up .

We rented the house quickly in 2013  for $1,1050 to a lady who had to sell a house in Tennessee before buying a much larger home across Winchester Road in the Riverwalk Subdivision. She left it in great shape but we are doing some additional cleaning, painting and landscaping.

 Pleas let us know if you want to see the house. 

Please follow the links below to the virtual tour and to the MLS listing

If this home happens to sell before we have the loan approval, we can help you find another. We know the area well and once we understand what your needs and preferences are can probably point out neighborhoods and homes you hadn't considered.

We an help you get loan approval and find a great new home for your family

We an help you get loan approval and find a great new home for your family. While the home that caught my wife and mine we can't recommenced it for someone with school age children. While improving the schools still wouldn't work.

The area you mentioned, south Huntsville does have good schools but there is redistricting that will change Huntsville High School's entire environment.You might consider other areas as well. We live just outside the city to the northeast. There is natural beauty, lakes, rivers, shopping and we have been pleased with the schools. Commutes are quick compared to any mid sized city.

There is also a what is effectively an zero down payment loan with no private mortgage insurance available outside the city, Hot having to pay PMI can save a couple hundred dollars per month.

Madison might be an option as long as we stay in areas of lower traffic. Home costs are higher there however.

We can start the loan process below but I wanted to find out more about your needs so we can better serve you.

What grades are your children / child in?
What is your target monthly payment range?
What is the general location of your office and how long is your target commute?

Just to give you a sample of available homes with a $700 payment we an make some loan assumptions that might not be correct. With a 4% rate and no PMI we can probably purchase in the $150,000 range. Once we firm up loan information we can set a better price range.

Here is a selection of just newer homes near where we are that might be candidates. Depending on your target commute we might eliminate a few.

In south Huntsville and on the east side of Huntsville there were just a few newer homes available. By increasing the ages were were able to find some to review.

Once we have more information we can do a detailed search and set up an automated search of new listings of price reductions that move into your range. Before you ever see a house in person we can help filter by our local knowledge then research your A list to make sure there isn't some issue that would eliminate it after an onsite visit. It takes time but we find it's a great help to out of town buyers. 

As time allows we can preview and photo homes that may be in your top 3 - 4. We include general photos plus any negative issues we see.

Not knowing Huntsville well this information may be helpful. Please keep in mind the changes at Huntsville High that serves central and east Huntsville.

While Schooldigger and Greatschools.com have some good information and links to school websites i'm not entirely trusting of the information. At best the information is dated. Sometimes the data does not reflect my observations and quires to parents. Even in the summer we should be able to arrange an on site school visit.

Moving to Huntsville

Thanks for your inquiry.

The owner of the Treyburne home is a client and friend who self manages her property. We help her market when it comes available. We have forwarded your request 


All of our available rental homes are posted here.


If you don't know the Huntsville area well this page may be helpful to you

If you can let us know what you are looking for in a rental home in terms of price, size, schools, commute time and the general location of your job we will see if we can find additional candidates for you.

How long are you planning on being in Huntsville? If you plan on being here for over three years and have the time to shop you might consider a purchase. With interest rates as low as 3.5% , some no and low down payment loans still available and home prices here just starting to rise again it's a good time to consider buying.  We have helped several of our tenant clients transition to owning while substantially lowering their expenses. 

We hope this was helpful and please let us know if there is anything we can to to assist you or any relocating colleagues. 



Posted by Philip Winburn on May 29th, 2015 7:16 PM
Our first step is to get a loan pre-approval from a lender that we can present to sellers along with an offer. If you don't have a lender please contact Mary or Haley below. They should be able to let you know over the phone how much you can borrow, an estimate of the interest rate and what loan programs to consider. 

Since you are living in east Limestone County now would you like to stay in that area, perhaps in a certain school zone?

Searching up to $80,000 to account for negotiation we only found four active listings. Three of the four listings are in the BRUNSWICK subdivision a Hunter home development off of County Line Road. We have had some concerns about this and other of the cheaper Hunter Home developments holding value and the homes being well maintained. 


Here is the Google Satellite image of the neighborhood (We don't know when it was taken.). Here is the Google street view of the neighborhood entrance from August of 2013. Google hasn't driven the neighborhood yet so additional photos aren't available. 

16426 MCCULLEY MILL ROAD doesn't look to be in very good shape and is on a busy road. 

It may not be a candidate for you but my wife and I have a house that is for sale but not yet posted on MLS that is for sale. It is near downtown Huntsville, Redstone Arsenal, the medical district and Research Park. Here is the information.

Please let us know what areas you would consider and we can widen the search and see what else we can find for you. 

 If after talking with the lenders below any of the homes are candidates let us know ans we can arrange showings.

Dear Ask The Attorney:

I filed for eviction against my tenant and am seeking a money judgment for unpaid rent.  This tenant also did significant property damage to the property.  Why can't I include the property damage in my money judgment claim? 

The answer to this is actually fairly complex and has to do with the rules governing law suits (specifically, Rule 8 of the Alabama Rules of Civil Procedure).  In basic terms, the Court can only award you what is specifically requested in the initial complaint.  You can only request things that you know, or are reasonably certain, exist at the time of filing. When you file an unlawful detainer action, you seek unpaid rent and late fees - not property damage. Therefore, the court cannot award you money for property damage that you later discover when the tenant moves out.  If the Court did award damages in excess of those requested in the complaint it renders the entire judgment void.  You are not without remedy, however.  Under certain circumstances, you can always file a separate lawsuit against the tenant for property damage that exceeds the security deposit. 

Dear Ask The Attorney:

My lease specifically says if they break the lease they forfeit their security deposit.  Do I still need to send the security deposit accounting letter within 35 days of move-out?

Ala. Code 35-9A-201 requires that a residential landlord holding a security deposit send the tenant an itemization of deductions from that deposit (or the deposit back) within 35 calendar days of the move-out.  If the residential landlord fails to send the letter, the tenant is entitled to double the security deposit.  You are required to send the accounting letter EVEN IF the tenant leaves owing a balance, under eviction, or as a privately-negotiated early lease termination. As a side note, the "law abhors a forfeiture" and  provisions of residential lease agreements that purport to forfeit security deposits are suspect.  
 
If you have any questions regarding these issues, you may contact our office at (256) 562 -1999 or seek the advice of outside counsel.

Beware of rental scams! Wire transfers and long-distance inquiries are red flags.

Beware of Scams and Other Internet Fraud

Scams are a reality of shopping online and offline. You should always be wary of giving personal information, financial information, or payments of any kind to people you don't know personally.

Red Flags for Scams

Requests to wire funds via MoneyGram or Western Union 

Most scams involve a request to wire funds. Do not wire funds to anyone you haven't met personally. Scammers create convincing reasons why they need to deal remotely. Likewise, do not accept wire funds that you did not initiate. 

 

Long-distance landlords

Most scams come from users in foreign countries who claim to be interested in purchasing or renting out a home. Be wary of claims from people who are contacting you from abroad because they are missionaries, U.N. workers, or in the military. 

 

Requests for verification codes

If you are asked to provide a code sent to your cell phone via text or phone call, this is a scam.

 

Requests for personal or financial information 

Do not provide your bank account number or Social Security Number to unknown sources. First verify it is a trusted source and then only provide this information sparingly.

 

Typos and sob stories 

Emails filled with spelling and grammatical errors are usually a sign of fraud. British spelling such as "favour" instead of "favor" is also a sign of a rental scam. Messages involving stories of family or financial issues or of agents who charge too high a premium are usually fraud. 

Report Scams and Fraud

If you believe you have been scammed, report the incident to the FTC. If you sent money via Western Union or MoneyGram, report the incident immediately: if the recipient hasn't collected the money yet, the wire transfer company can reverse the transfer.

When reporting scams, include as much as possible of the following: the name and address of the sender, the send location, the date and amount of the transfer, the transfer fee, the date and actual location of the receipt, the name of the receiver, any information recorded regarding the receiver's identification, the reference number for the transfer, and the details of the nature of the issue.

Examples of Scams

Below are examples of fraudulent emails….

"I'm out of the country and need you to wire me the deposit."

How the scam works: You find a great rental (it's usually too good to be true), but the landlord is located out of state or out of the country. They'll rent it to you and mail you the keys if you just send a deposit. 

Tip: Don't wire money to anyone you haven't met in person. If it looks like a great deal and is too good to be true, it's likely a scam. You will lose your money, and the place you were looking at isn't really even on the market.

Example email:

Hello,

 

Thanks for your email and interest in renting my house.

Property is available for move in at the moment for $1250 for the month rent and $1200 for the security deposit (Refundable After Lease period , As long as there are no damages on property after inspection). For immediate move in you would be required to make a total payment of $2450 but if you are not moving in Immediately, you would be required to make a down payment of $1200 for the security deposit Non- negotiable, to hold property till desired move in date.

 

Unfortunately, I would not be present in person to show you the property due to my recent job transfer to London, UK, and I do not have a local representative to show the house due to my transfer so if you are interested in renting the property and willing to work with me despite my absence then I would email the necessary papers for the lease to you, for necessary endorsement.

 

I also want to tell you that the neighborhood is secured and the people staying there are good.

 

Details of the house are below;

 

Rent: $1250.

Security Deposit: $1200

3 Bedrooms, 1.75 Bathroom.

Single-Family Home.

Location: Kirkland WA 98033.

Street Address: 12721 Northeast 101st Place.

Pets Allowed: Cats and Dogs.

Size: 1,800 sqft.

Home available for immediate move in.

 

This is a charming home in Kirkland.

Lovely move in ready 3 bedroom, 1.75 bath, rambler, located on quiet cul-de-sac. Approx. 1800 sq ft., built in 1989. Bright and airy interior that has been beautifully updated and well-maintained.

Exterior Sun Blockers roll-shutters for max insulation & security.

Other features include security system, built-in vacuum system and skylights. High quality throughout. Neutral colors. Master suite with private bath and two walk in closets. Spacious kitchen with tons of oak cabinets and all appliances (refrig, range, microwave). Very light and open, Washer and dryer included. 2-car attached garage with opener.

Yard service included and home is pet friendly!

 

Regards.

"I overpaid you with my money order. Please send some back."

How the scam works: A renter or buyer agrees to wire you money for a deposit, but accidentally sends too much. They ask you to wire back the over-payment and you must "act now." You send the "overpayment" back and their check fails to clear the bank. Now, the money you sent is gone forever.

 

Tip: Don't wire money to anyone you haven't met in person.

Example email exchange:

"Thanks for the speedy response,i am really excited that the house on the Huntsville MLS / Valley MLS is in good condition, and i really love the pictures of the house i have seen so far, i would not mind to see more pictures of the home, i would like to know if i would have any repairs what so ever.

I work with the United nations development program(UNDP).I have been working there for 5 years.

I am married with no kid. I and my Wife actually got married last year. My Full name is PXXXX AXXXX kXXXX and my Wife's name is  MXXXX DXXXX kXXXX.she is a school teacher, I am 39 years old and my wife is 35.Our current house address is 3XXXXXXXXXXXXX, EXXXXX Edinburgh Scotland.

I have never bought homes for sale in Huntsville before, this would be my first, and i am not working alongside any agents, I also want to know how soon you are willing to move out of the house. I and my wife are looking to relocate as soon as we have found a home we like, I would also like to know your final price for this property. please kindly get back to me asap."

"I want to buy your property. Please send sensitive information."

How the scam works: Someone contacts you remotely and proposes to buy or rent your property. They may ask for personal information that can be used to steal your identity or rob your bank account.

Aluminum to Copper connection causes Huntsville home fire.
home fire Huntsville

In the late 1960s to 1970s aluminum wire was sometimes used to wire homes. Copper prices spiked and builders were able to save a few hundred dollars per home by using aluminum instead of copper.

Aluminum oxidizes. The oxidation forms on the surface of aluminum and is a barrier to electricity. As electricity flows through the oxidation barrier it generates heat. The heat may cause a fire. The heat also causes the aluminum to copper connection to expand.

Aluminum and copper expand at different rates when heated making the connection even worse and causing more and more heat. A loose connection can cause electric arcing and cause a fire.

There is a third risk; When Aluminum and copper are connected, especially under heat, galvanic corrosion will begin. Since the two metals are different a reaction at the atomic level begins. Metal from one wire begins to move to the other. This corrosion weakens the electric connection even more. The heat, expansion, oxidation, corrosion cycle repeats and amplifies over time.

Never connect copper and aluminum wiring. Never connect aluminum wiring to copper light switches, outlets or light fixtures. While there are products that claim to make these connections safe always call an experienced, licensed and insured electrician.

The only way we can make sound decisions is to start with accurate information. Please take a moment to review your house's MLS listing at the link below, then we will do a comparison with what XXXXX will do for you. Please take a look at the home and neighborhood virtual tours of your house under the photos.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913730

We also highlighted the desirable schools, the neighborhood and area.

In contrast let's start with the properties XXXXX has listed. Her web page (not website) within the national ReMax website showing her listings is below.

http://www.zmyhomes.com/alabama-homes.aspx

Lets look at each of her MLS postings to see how much effort she puts into them. (Note our MLS won't let us email listings with the listing agent information.)

102 XXXXX  WAY was posted today. It's proposed construction but there is no neighborhood tour and little neighborhood information.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=71189 XXXXX

100 XXXXX DRIVE note that the virtual tour is very slow to load and doesn't have a narrative or panoramic photos. The photos on the v tour are just the same ones on the listing. This practice by most Realtors is why I have to encourage viewers to click my tours. Most viewers are so accustomed to this lazy, same old photo practice, that they don't even bother clicking. The tours are insanely labor intensive to do well but I believe they are worth the effort.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=711891 XXXXX

12017 XXXXX DRIVE  Same deal on the v tour. This house has been on the market since 10/23/13

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913 XXXXX


216 XXXXX  Same deal on the v tour. This house has been on the market since 12/12/13

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913 XXXXX

131 XXXXX Same deal on the v tour. This house has been on the market since 11/15/13

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913 XXXXX

231 XXXXX COURT The virtual tour doesn't have a narrative or panoramic photos. The photos on the v tour are just the same ones on the listing.  This house has been on the market since 12/12/13

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=71189137 XXXXX

126 XXXXX STREET  On market since 12/10/11.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913 XXXXX

I've done a few transactions with XXXXX that went well. She has most of the same marketing tools and national realty website syndication options that we do but we take it further. We have an internet marketing company based in Nashville that posts our listings on additional sites.

If there is some other way to "Aggressively Market" a listing that she has promised, I would sincerely like to know and incorporate it into our toolbox. Was there something specific she offered?  

I may have mentioned before but open houses are for the benefit of the Realtor. Realtors can meet new buyers. I have heard of homes selling from open houses but like Sasquatch have never actually seen one. In 2000 the National Association of Realtors published the article at the link below. In the past 14 years the industry has moved even further away form open houses and more to comprehensive online marketing.

http://www.realtor.com/basics/sell/listadvert/openhouse.asp

Not making any accusation at all but in the past we have seen Realtors promise sellers more than what data indicates the market will bear. Once they lock a seller into a listing agreement they make excuses and get the seller to lower the price until it sells. In competing with other Realtors for a new listing I have seen this tactic as common practice. It's sad but true. I follow the listings I didn't get to track the price and marketing time. Without exception the properties sold well below what seller was promised and closer to my estimate of market value.

We can trouble shoot any listing based on showing activity and showing feedback. All of our showings including those when the house was in bad shape are below. ( It doesn't look like XXXXX has seen the house.)  The showing activity has been decent, especially considering our rehab time,bad weather and that we are just hitting selling season.

Decent showing activity with no offers is an indication that the price and marketing are on track but there is some reason we aren't getting an offer.

Sometimes it's hard to get candid feedback from showing agents. They want to be polite and sometimes they show so many houses in a they can't remember every house. The only negative comments I have been able to get was the back yard. Our two choices are to fix the yard or lower the price to the point that a lower price outweighs the yard in a buyer's mind.

Its been out experience that most buyers can't see past what is in front of their eyes. Even with paint, carpet, decorating or landscaping allowances offered they will walk out of a house that needs some fine tuning for a higher priced but ship shape house. Almost always money is better spent in making a house show better. 

Let's have a look at our competition. The following are the active listings in Madison in the $160,000 - $170,00 range. There are some new and newer homes that are harder to beat. There are two other homes for sale in Huntsville listings in Windsor Parke.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913854

The link below is to a summary of the Windsor Parke listings. We are at $91 per square foot while the other two listings are at $88 and $87 per square foot. Being new listings they will get an initial bump in showing activity that we missed when the house was on the market but in bad shape.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913861

In all of Madison County there are 178 active listings.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913864

Unless a house is really exceptional with upgrades like granite, stainless appliances, tile and hardwood it's nearly impossible to sell above the range of competing homes. Buyers are weighing price against features and benefits. We have to look at the world through a buyer's eyes. 

I understand the house is putting fiscal stress on you and no one anticipated the economy crashing. This might be a time to evaluate your position on the house. Is it better to sell even at a lower price or by working or the yard or is it better to re-rent, hold, and wait for the market to improve.

One marketing tool to consider is a lease purchase to separate ourselves from competing properties.

We have probably already overwhelmed you with information but the following web page cuts through a lot of the fluff that the industry uses to sell clients rather than sell houses. We used your tours as examples.

Before making the offer let's have a closer look so we better understand the neighborhood and it's trends.

Here is a summary of MLS activity of comparable homes in the neighborhood in the past 13 months.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913563

The average sold price was $29 per square foot with a range of $27 to $32 per square foot. The subject is listed at $30 per square foot. Of the four sales all were bank owned. The one pending sale is not bank owned, It was listed at $36 per square foot. We won't know the sales price until after closing. It was only on market 6 days. Having 100% of sales in a neighborhoods bank owned is cause for concern. Th make sure this isn't an anomaly let's look at the past few tears to see if we can spot a pattern.

In 2013 the average sold price for comparables was $32 per square foot. Nine of the ten sales were bank owned.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913588

In 2012 the average sold price was $33 per square foot with a range of $26 to $38 per square foot. Seven of the eight sales were bank owned homes.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913599

In 2011 the average sold price was $34 per square foot with a range of $10 to $49 per square foot. Seven of the fifteen sales were bank owned homes for sale in Huntsville. Several of the sales were new homes sold buy the builder.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913609

We can see the direction this neighborhood is headed but we can learn more by looking at the number of rentals in the neighborhood. The following are just those that have been posted in the MLS. There could be more.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913628

Google hasn't driven Lockport but you can drag the man icon on the zoom control to Farrington for the street view. Please note the street view is dated.

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=133+LOCKPORT+DRIVE,+HARVEST,+AL+35749&hl=en&ll=34.849926,-86.755961&spn=0.000463,0.00066&sll=34.631203,-86.554111&sspn=0.336169,0.676346&t=h&hnear=133+Lockport+Dr,+Harvest,+Alabama+35749&z=21

We have experience in this neighborhood. I have declined managing property in the neighborhood. While I was having chemotherapy my colleague Michael picked up management of two houses. Michael had a great work ethic and is a close friend. He hadn't yet experienced the headaches that come with managing modest income property in declining neighborhoods.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118913636

This neighborhood was built by the same builder as the Vancouver house that we missed. This is a newer development during a period when the focus of Hunter Homes was to market to entry level buyers.

If you want to make an offer we will be happy to assist but think buying in this neighborhood would be like kicking the tar baby.

SAFETY ALERT .. AGENT ALERT..

We have received word today of a man contacting female agents in the Harvest area looking for a lease purchase option of a vacant home. The individual has claimed to have $40,000 in cash and is wanting to meet at empty properties. While this could be a perfectly legitimate buyer, the scenario caused several of our members to be concerned for their safety and report the situation to the Board. We would like to remind our members to be safe and meet any potential clients in a public place, preferably your brokers office and inform others where you are going and with who. Please follow your offices safety policy and read the attached NAR safety link?

The following is a summary of all Huntsville MLS activity in the neighborhood in the past 13 months.  There were three sales at an average $75 per square foot and a range of $52 to $96 per square foot. The average days on market were 144 with a wide range of 13 to 371 days.
 
http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118851491
 
For better comparison the following are the full listings for better comparison.
 
http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118851495
 
109 SMOKEY QUARTZ DRIVE was a bank owned property. With the pool gazebo and pergola 211 DEER FOOT DRIVE is not a close comparable sale.
 
215 ROCK VIEW WAY is probably the best comparable sale. It sold at $168,000 / $77 per square foot in 371 days. The house does have a premium lot, a cul-de-sac with open space behind.
 
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=215+ROCK VIEW+WAY+,+MADISON,+AL+35757&ll=34.805585,-86.743914&spn=0.001853,0.002642&hnear=215+Rockview+Way,+Madison,+Alabama+35757&t=h&z=19
 
The contingent listing at 105 DIAMOND BACK LANE was listed at $169,900 / $89 per square foot for 59 days before going on market. We won't know the contract price until after closing but we can assume it is less than list price.
 
The active listing at 206 DEER FOOT DRIVE is listed at $169,900 / $82 per square foot. It has been on market 310 days. The long days on market is an indication the house is either priced above what the market will bear or it doesn't show well. With the exception of some dirty carpets the photos of the house look pretty good.
 
For better comparison the following are the full listings.
 
http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118851514
 
My first impression is that the market would bear something in the $75 - $77 per square foot range or $144,000 - $148,000 range on the subject house.
 
Since there was only one sale in the neighborhood we need to check out market estimate against homes that will be competing with us for the same buyers. There are 43 active listings in Harvest - Monrovia in the $140,000 - $150,000 range.There are four contingent sales. There are some new and newer homes for sale in Huntsville that will be tough to compete with.
 
http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=7118851525
 
The number and type of competing homes makes us think the market might bear something in the low $140,000 range. There are always exceptions but with the information we have to work with we can't assume the market will bear more.

The following summary includes sold homes, active listings and contingent sales in the neighborhood.

http://nalmls.com/NALMLSReports/ListitLib/show_report.aspx?ID=71145872201

None of the sales were distressed properties. The active listing XXXXXXXXXX is a short sale. It's listed at $76 per square foot and needs work. The contingent sale at XXXXXXXXXX is a foreclosed home. It was listed at $74 per square foot.

As before, the sales were in a narrow range from $85 to $95 per square foot. The average sold price was $89 per square foot. The average days on market were modest at 53 days and a very wide range of 7 to 290 days.

There are five active listings at an average $93 per square foot and  a range of $76 to $101 These homes have been on market an average of 85 days with a range of 5 to 182 days. 

At the average sold price of $89 per square foot XXXXXXXXXX  would be $154,000. We are coming out of the slowest selling season and activity is picking up. That being said we can expect a sale to take at least 60 days and as much as 300 days for the house to sell. 

In the city of Madison there are 19 active listings in the $140,000 to $155,000 range. Overall XXXXXXXXXX  compares well with the other active Madison listings. There are new and proposed construction homes but the price per square foot is much higher on these homes.

As an additional way of setting your house apart from competing homes we might consider offering the house as a lease purchase home for sale in Huntsville .
