I see this is an old post, but for anyone else reading it, I have some opinions to share. Everything in life is mindset. If you expect Spanish to be a barrier, it will be. However, I was born and raised here and though I am not proud to say it, I still don't know it hardly at all (I can't converse in it!) because I almost never have to speak it. You will be fine. I actually want to learn it better. It's the perfect opportunity, where else can you go and try to converse in a different language and go back to your native language when you get in over your head. LOL

Regarding safety. I just moved from back from a long stint in Indiana and there were parts of Indianapolis (where I spent many years) that I felt more threatened than any places I have visited here in El Paso.

In summary, I am certain that you will find El Paso quite welcoming. There are many people from many places due to the base. There is a lot of wonderful food and culture here. It's not like any other place.

Prices are estimated based on the scope of work, will drywall be removed, attic might have a small attic or No attic etc. My suggestion is first go to your city hall building department and ask to check for a wiring diagram, make sure it has a single line, panel and load schedule. If they do not have plans, just get estimates from local electrical contractors and if you have aluminum wiring you will need an electrical contractor with a crimping tool. ... more

Alan May answered:
There is no "one" fee that western Chicago agents charge. Each agent/agency charges their fee based on the services they offer.

Contact several agents/agencies and ask what they charge, and what they offer for that fee.

Good luck.

Sally Grenier answered:
What does your Realtor say?? He/she is the one you should be asking. Closing costs will vary from buyer to buyer, depending on the loan amount, the lender fees, the title company closing fees, taxes, HOA transfer fees, etc. In the contract, the buyer's agent should specify an amount they are asking the seller to pay. ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
Honestly, not good. Just not good for now. You need two years from the discharge date of your bankruptcy to get a decent interest rate and down payment. If you want forge ahead, a hard money lender will be happy to help you out with 25 to 40% down and double digit interest rates.

Look at your papers. You might be back as soon as August.

Good luck!
