A FHAhome inspector has an obligation to inform his customer, the potential buyer, everything about the condition of the home, from simple things like ripped carpet or leaky faucets to major roofing or plumbing issues. Just because minor issues may not affect the safety of a home it does not mean they are not costly to repair. A potential buyer could find out from an inspection report that the home is not in the condition she believed it was in, and she may change her mind about continuing with the purchase. For this reason, many home purchase contracts contain special language that makes the contract contingent on the findings of a home inspection and allow for negotiation of repair costs or purchase price.

If you qualify for a VA loan you can buy with no money down and roll most of your out-of-pocket costs into the loan. Otherwise, keep saving and work your way up to 20-30% of the price of the home. Best of luck...... more
I am very familiar with this location and enjoy it greatly. You should stop by the local Police department and get a crime report of where you may be staying. This is the best way to get the facts about the neighborhood. Good Luck!... more
It typically starts with referrals. Ask friends or family about anyone they know and trust. If you can't get any names that way, resources online like trulia can show reviews on agents in your area. Find a few agents and give them a call. No harm or problems with interviewing them to get to know them a little bit.
First have a paper trail showing the bounced checks and fees. If you have some kind of written agreement all the better. Regardless, padlock the door for 30 days. If he doesn't try to get to his belongings or contact you, get rid of the stuff and move on. Just make sure you show that you were trying to contact him either with multiple phone calls, texts, emails and even letters. Whatever you have to do. Just make sure you have proof and kick him out!... more
I'm sure you would be able to take out a loan as long as your credit is good. You should talk to your bank about this. It's probably a good idea to do this soon and get it figured out. http://www.angleridgeremodeling.com... more
There are a lot of unknowns regarding this question - for example what are the reasons why you can't afford to sell at a lower price? Before assuming the agent did anything wrong, did you have the agent or someone else from the office sign a limited power of attorney for the sale of your property?
Regarding the price, keep in mind that if the home is not selling at the price listed, do you already know how long you can afford to carry it waiting for it to sell at the higher price - which quite possibly may not happen? If so, great, if not you need to understand that and if you can't afford to carry it, lower the price until you get an offer. While many like to get the highest price possible, it isn't always possible and you have to think of alternatives like a short sale...or renting out the property.
Again, other information is not known that would make answering this question more spot on..Tom Hinz www.shortsaletosell.com.... more
