Be prepared to pay extra deposit in case the home owner will consider you because of good income. Why pay over $5000 just to get in for a house rental if I can put you into a program that you will be guaranteed as home owner? Talk me and I will coach you for free in real estate. ... more

I'm not an attorney, so this shouldn't be considered legal advice. Always consult your attorney for legal advice.

Anything left behind on the property, in my humble opinion, now belongs to you... and if you want to have it removed from the property, you should be able to do so. ... more

Hi Kaity,
You can interview several of them, see what type of training they offer, see if you can join a team where you can learn the process, see if you like a particular location, if you prefer a small or large company, and many other factors.

Kind regards,
Arpad

Hi,

This is one of many personal considerations to look into. As far as value, an appraiser or your real estate agent could look into sales over time that are right next to high power lines and then similar homes that are further away, and help you see if there are differences that you are able to use in decision making.

Kind regards,
Arpad

Hi Cheri,
The lender may need to communicate with the agent for several reasons. Some May be: a copy of the contract, a copy of the preliminary title report, the contact information for the title/escrow company, access to the property for an appraiser, to coordinate signoff, when addendum or other changes are made, and other issues on a case by case basis.

Kind regards,
Arpad
