My mother in law is in the middle of a bankruptcy right now. She was trying to file for bankruptcy all by herself, but it is actually pretty difficult we came to find out. A bankruptcy attorney has really been beneficial for her.

I researched this last year and what I was told is that although the program still shows up on the Internet, it is not acitve. Perhaps that is because no lenders are offering it. Any takers out there, lenders??? : )... more
Clint, Believe it or not, I am going to side with an agent on this question. Robert is 100% right. No one can answer your question with going over all of the details of your current loan (type, length you have had it), your goals (how long you plan to stay in the house, debt and equity goals) and running all the numbers. The answers are in black and white...you just need to find a mortgage professional who will provide the numbers to you so you can make a educated decision. I suggest you check out www.mortgagecoach.com and find a local mortgage professional in your area. Mortgage Coach has the best tools for educating consumers I have ever used. Best to you!... more
I am a Realtor who live and work in the SW Waterfront area. It's a great area with 1BR condos and coops from $150-$400K. If you want a direct water view it may cost between $175-$250K depending on the square footage and the building. There are only three buildings with direct water views. Sometimes, the best properties do not make it to the public market because buyers have realtors who leave and work in the Waterfront area scouting sellers. I have a 1BR that I will put on the market next month for approximately $187K. If you are interested, or if you want me to put you in my database please contact me at Reone@ivanbrownrealty.com. I also keep an ad in the Southwester publication which is also online. If you are a first time home buyer in DC you can get down payment assistance as well. I hope this information was helpful, and you mayu want to attend one of my homebuyer seminars at the 1st District Police Station in SW.... more
The cheapest way to set up a landlord escrow account is simply to set up an additional business checking account with your bank, which should be free. As far as I know, you can keep all of your tenants' security deposits in the same account and it's not considered comingling as long as the account is only for tenant security deposits, but I'm not a lawyer and you should really check on the landlord - tenant laws in DC.... more
