I have an agent who is superior at staging and together we handle for our clients. It is possible that your agent has those same skills.
Why not ask your agent to produce photos of other homes your agent has staged and you be the judge.
no, i sell a lot in that area and it's beautiful. Crime is an issue throughout the city. But crime in Harlem has reached record lows. Look om the local princict web site.
Have your Realtor contact the Listing Agent to see the status of the short sale. The Listing Agent can contact the short sale negotiator (bank) for a status update - your Realtor cannot contact the short sale negotiator (bank).
Are you sure that it is FANNIE MAE that you are in Contract with?
Not some Bank?
In either case; you probably can't sue them:
I am not a Lawyer, and I do not dispense legal advice,
But I believe that in order to sue somebody, you need to show a LOSS.
Being deprived of the house, is not a loss.
You have not suffered a financial loss; have you?... more
There is some great places out there right now with, tenants in place, so all you would do is buy the place and start collecting checks.
Regarding tax tips, the best thing would be to consultate a CPA or accountant you feel comfortable with. There are a lot of things you can write off, but just a matter of talking with an accountant.

If you are in the middle of the bidding process and find that you can no longer tolerate your agent, it would probably best for all concerned to contact his broker and ask that your file be assigned to another agent. If that bid doesn't work out, I would suggest interviewing a few other agents before making any more offers.
Best of luck,

There may be other extenuating circumstances here that your mortgage broker is aware of, however I have closed on co-purchases similar to the situation you present, except that it was parents buying for/with their adult child, rather than the other way around. I would look further into the co-borrowing scenario - he is correct in that you do not want to go the route of you being the sole borrower with an investor / non - primary residence loan. If I can be of any additional assistance, please feel free to contact me, contact info is below.

It is not so much as whether the condo association allows 5 - 10% down but rather if you can find a lender that will write a loan with 5 to 10% down.
Check with your lender about a FHA home loan. These allow first time home buyers buy a home with less than 3.5% down (and most of your closing costs and fees can be included in the loan).

I am not sure at what stage of the purchase you are at the moment. Your attorney and a broker should be able to advise you in more details and I am just adding my 5 cents:
depending on your and your son's particular circumstances, you can either own apartment jointly with your son, i.e. have both of your names on the stock certificate and on the proprietary lease or can just add him to the proprietary lease. It should be specified in your board application who will be living with you in the apartment and at the closing, your attorney has to make sure the lease includes your son's name.
Some coops may want to run a credit check on him, as well (not sure what age he is) and will ask him for an interview...some coops will even want to have a full board application with his pay stubs, taxes and bank statements (again if he is an adult).
You should discuss all possible options and this coop's requirements with your attorney and a broker, if you have one. I would be happy to assist.

They should be able to do it with or without a partnership. Now is certainly a good time to do it. They should consider Key West, the American Carribbean...the rental market down here is ALWAYS in need of more inventory. People pay $1200/month to live in a tiny 1/1. Best of luck...... more
