Had a short sale in 2012. Can I buy a home this year?
If you have cash, you can buy a house at any time. If you want financing, there are lenders who can help you. Be aware that the rate may be much higher than your last mortgage loan.

Steve Burgess answered:
We're considering a home in North Scottsdale for the winter months. We don't want a swimming pool. Do pools increase or decrease property?
Most chances are that pools does increases the rate of property by max to max 5-8%, but that shouldn't be worrying since you can always avail housing loan with a low rate of interest.

WIth lots of cash, good credit and a brand new top performing restaurant franchise - do I have to wait for 2 years of tax returns to buy a home?
Well my dear friend you can also avail housing loan with a low interest rate, try to be positive & do little market research, before opting for any mode.

Why don't HOA homeowners watch their HOA closely to protect themselves? Owners have few rights; recall, elect, sue and sell...and a lot of risks.
You bring up some good points. More homeowner's should be aware of what is going on in their community and how to resolve issues.
