In writing with all the details clearly spelled out. Unless the property you need to sell is already under contract with a defined closing date you need to realize a contingency offer is always going to be perceived as weak. If the market is favoring sellers (which I believe is the case in Seattle), it's unlikely such an offer will be given much consideration so if you have to do this make it a strong offer in all other respects.... more
My wife and I contacted Trusted Property Group to purchase our home. We were facing foreclosure and needed someone to help us in our situation. They spent time on the phone to better understand what we were going through and what we hoped to accomplish. They worked with us and ultimately purchased our home on a short sale. They were very understanding throughout the short sale process as we were not that easy to work with. We had a ton of stress and they helped us. We thank Trusted Property Group for working with us and helping us. We would highly recommend Trusted Property Group to help anyone who is facing foreclosure.... more
Within a neighborhood of comparable homes single level homes tend to appraise for more per square foot than multi level homes. It costs more to build out than up and this is reflected in the appraisal valuation. It should be noted that this requires that the homes being compared are of similar age, condition and finish quality as well.... more
Your are making yourself crazy for absolutely no good reason. A 700 is a decent score and you'll get a decent rate. Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish. 1/4% difference in the rates given how low they are today is peanuts. You are wasting more than you'll save on your monthly mortgage payment every month already as 1/4% on a $200,0000 mortgage equals about $20 a month.
Why it's difficult for you to raise your credit score has to do with you're spending and repayment habits, you could speak to a credit counselor to see what you could do to raise your rates but you'll spend more money and time then you'll save on your monthly payment. Find yourself an experienced buyer broker and go buy a home and stop beating yourself up and wasting precious time.
I wish you good luck and all the best for the coming year.... more
If the agent either has direct knowledge or could reasonably be expected to have this knowledge then they are responsible to disclose it. If you are looking at a bank owned property they may or may not have knowledge. Buyers should not expect anyone other than themselves to ultimately be responsible for discovering any defects in a home. This is the very meaning of the legal precept, "Let the Buyer beware"
It's also why buyers are given a period of time to inspect a home in any manner they choose, to have an attorney or title company investigate the home and if you have reason to suspect the home may have been a former drug house you should take it upon yourself to contact the locat police department and ask the question.... more
Too be honest, it is hard enough to find anyone that will finance mobile homes, much less refinance a older 1979 mobile regardless of tie downs, if you put a skirt on a mobile, its still a mobile. Your 5 acres is what has value, in my opinion, a 1979 out dated mobile is not worth very much. I hear about people not being able to re-finance their modern mobile homes, and you have a 1979.... more
