Hi Bucka. Regarding the pet, finding a rental that will allow your dog is just a matter of finding an individual owner who is willing to accept the pet. In most cases, you would need to pay a non-refundable pet fee in the range of $250-300 for having the pet at the property. When buying, the only time there are pet restrictions are when you are looking at condos or townhome communities, in most cases. if you want something with a workshop, find an agent (like me!) who is willing to take the time necessary to find you properties that have that feature.
Yes and no. A property with a tax lien is usually on its way to or is in foreclosure. We have foreclosed properties for sale. When someone bids and wins the tax lien rights they have not bought the deed but their investment pays the delinquent taxes for the property owner who has fallen behind, in exchange the buyer is given first lien position on the title. Liens for unpaid property taxes have priority over all other liens. You are not buying the property. If you are interested in obtaining tax liens, I suggest you familiarize yourself with the property of interest and your legal obligations.... more
