I think that is a great idea. It doesn't take too much effort to go over and mow the lawn next door or send your teenager over there to pick up trash or leaves. It doesn't need to be the greatest job ever. Just enough to keep the home from being an eyesore.
Neighborhoods with homeowner's associations sometimes use the general funds to have this taken care of and to keep the neighborhood looking nice. But even places without an association would be well served to kick in some money towards this or just do it out of the kindness of their heart.
It's not their duty by any means, however, this helps them out as well. It helps a little to keep their property values from tanking, and it probably enhances the chances of getting good neighbors in there.
My point is that it doesn't take a lot to do this, and the benefits are probably well worth it.... more

That's a good one!! Of course we are all going to say "I am"!! A good way to test a realtor and see how much they really care about people is to tell them you need to rent or lease purchase first and see how far they will go the extra mile. If they are willing to help you find a rental or a lease purchase knowing that you cannot buy right now, then you have found a good realtor. You need someone who cares enough to treat you like their relative and really wants to make sure that they are looking out for you and your best interests. Hope this helps and leads you in the right direction. Also look for a realtor that has their ABR (accredited buyers rep designation) if you are buying.... more

The question one needs to know is what kind of lease do your tenants have. If they have a lease, typically the lease runs with the sale of the property. The new owner will have to honor the lease. If they do not have a lease - typically written notice with proper documentation that they have received it is required. Contact an real estate attorney if you are concerned that your tenants won't cooperate.
Good luck!... more
