A close friend of our family's (non-resident alien in the US) is offering to transfer the deed of his rental in WA state to me as a quick claim deed.
For your own safety and protection I recommend you hire a Real Estate Attorney as well as an accountant for the tax issues. Realtors are not experts in either fields.

What happens if the owner of the other side doesn't pay their taxes and the master Insurance?

Is there a typical ratio or multiplier to use when working out a fair asking price based on the appraised value of a home?

All the answers are right on. Where in Fremont is the lot? What purpose do you want to use the lot? Is there a structure on the property?

Karen Hunt answered:
Homes on N 90th St are still in the 98103 zip code. Why are the homes north of 85th so much less in value, yet still 98103?
