When you say "goes under" ... I am assuming you mean he goes "bankrupt", in which case I would start by looking at the way in which the builder currently has titled his property(s) ... at least the one or ones that you are aware that he owns. Then I would do a title search for any other property found under that same owner's name. It could happen that the builder has spread his properties into other entities, in which case you would have to become a pretty good spy! (almost as much fun as tracing family geneology!) A good title company with a competent attorney could certainly help you with that.... more
Trulia has crime statistics available on this site. You may also want to try www.crimereports.com for that information. I applaud you for your diligence.
Good luck, let me know if I may be of assistance.
Thanks and be well, Karen Mitchell... more

I don't think it would be possible to give an accurate estimate. Each situation is different and could fall through for any number of reasons. Most agents are pretty savvy on whether a deal is good or questionable, even though we are all sometimes surprised.
It may be possible to put a back up offer on a contracted property. I have done that for clients and I have accepted those on listings where I thought a deal was questionable. Someone in that scenario is going to be disappointed. It also means that you as the backup offerer are tied up until the deal is done or you pull out. Either way it means you are waiting without really knowing what the outcome will be, and possibly waisting time while other potential homes pass you by.... more
It should be pretty quickly, within 48-72 hours. Some websites may be delayed in updating their data. You might want to consider using realtracs dot com as it is connected in real time to the Middle Tennessee MLS system. You would still be better off working directly with a Realtor and having them help find you a home. There are some things you need to do in advance of making an offer, and they can help guide you through that process. Their service is free and they can show you any home listed regardless of what company has it for sale. They work on your behalf to the exclusion of others.... more
Probably not. The local MLS system allows a property to be listed as active with a contingency which means there is a contract on the property but is dependent on financing, inspection or other variables. It also means that the property is still showing active on all websites. Until the listing agent moves the property to pending it shows active on the internet feed that Zillow and others tap into. It is typical for homes to be under contract in this way and you would not know it unless you're working directly with a Realtor.
You will also find that given the active market in Wilson County, nice homes that are well priced don't stay on the market all that long. It is possible for those types of listings to go under contract even before they pop up on Zillow. My suggestion is that if you're really serious about buying a home you should get with an agent so they can keep you informed and you don't waste your efforts. Choose an agent you're comfortable with. Any agent can show any property and their service is completely free to you as they are paid by the seller of the home you ultimately purchase. Good luck.... more
Yes, there are options available to you. It's important that you speak with a knowledgeable loan officer. As Realtors, we know enough to guide you, but don't let anyone and everyone start pulling your credit. As Tina said below give her a call or email. Or if you are looking in Wilson County, let me know and I will get you in touch with someone local.... more
They actually have titles just like cars, so until it is on a permanent foundation it's not considered "real property" but rather "personal property". I'd say usually the double wide and the land would go together and be priced as a whole unless it's spelled out differently.... more
No. A single or double wide is almost like buying a car, it's personal property until it is placed on a permanent foundation. It can also be placed on a rented lot or in a rented trailer park with other ones.... more
