If a death was made public, it will be easy to search on Google or you can ask the local police department. However, in many families (including mine), deaths are private and depending on state laws, owners may or may not need to disclose if a death occurred inside the house. Example: My father died at home before information was available online and there were no disclosure laws. My Mom sold the house and the buyers were never told about a death inside the house. ... more

Wished we had done this move years ago. Our bank account would be in vastly better shape although we're not by any means stressed.
The quiet and safe neighborhood with the amenities provided make it a pleasure to live in. Now on our ninth year here we're making some improvements to the home.
That's something we had experience getting done in our original home we vacated for older families sake. Miss it but we're very content here.
Recommend it for anyone who doesn't need the stressful costly lifestyle associated with an investable property. For younger and older people anymore it's a definite option to free up some income if nothing else. Pragmatic and smart!

Start with zillow.com and claim your address there. You will need to register first. Zillow and Trulia are the same company, so once your listing is on Zillow, it will sync with Trulia within 24 - 36 hours. ... more

Good question. Here is my story; I applied for a home loan few weeks ago but did not qualify. The last time I went through my credit report there were all sorts of things on my record including messed up addresses,bankruptcy and tax liens to dispute, and the companies all dropped it off my record. After searching through the internet for help i found this email address on FHA blog.. COMPUTERWORM.HACKER at HOTMAIL dotCOM, The goodnews is that this man fixed my credit scores to 758, removed tax liens, eviction and bankruptcy off my report, he increased my credit limit and credit leverage. Still surprised at how Its just so fast and easy to push the dispute button at the credit agency website with this hacker. He just did mine and asked me to check back in 5 days and i confirmed already my credit score is at 758, the negative and derogatory items fell off. You can contact him and worry no more on buying a home with low credit scores. Hope that helps everyone looking for help. ... more

Yes realtors do broadcast sellers who are problem sellers because they need to get paid quickly.

Verify what your neighbor said. Make an in person visit to Bergen County’s tax assessor’s office and to the building department or City Council’s office to find out what the official laws or rules are. You can try calling but not sure how much information they can tell you over the phone since you’re not the owner. Neighbor’s may not know all the details. ... more

Call several contractors to get detailed pricing on what things cost including labor and liability insurance. Research what homes have sold for in the last 6 months.

Go to the county tax assessor’s website and there should be a page on how property taxes are calculated. Also go to the local or town’s website and see if there are additional taxes residents need to pay. ... more

Contact the Office Manager or Broker in Charge where your realtor works and explain that you don’t want to sell and need to terminate your listing contract. Your listing contract is with the brokerage - not the individual realtor. The person in charge at the brokerage needs to sign off to cancel your contract. You will also need to call your agent too. ... more

You can and should pay your regular bills. What your lender means is the same week as closing, lenders will contact your employer to verify you’re still employed at the same company and they will pull your credit again to verify you didn’t go on a shopping spree or buy a new car. Lenders may ask for bank statements again to verify the cash is still there.

I know it’s stressful but as a former realtor, I told my buyers that as soon as you get the keys, you can buy what you need - not before.
