I have a similar situation, with a different reason I believe my realtor is not a ethical person during the negotiation, plus when we wanted go to next level, we found that my realtor have items in his contract, that we don't like. For example one of them was he wrote in his contract that I need paid to him a 3% in case if the seller make a mistake and the sale no finish. He showed me the house, but I don't like him, I want buy the house but I want a new realtor. This is Texas and I told him that I don't want sign nothing. ... more

You need to know that rentals in the New York City region never include utilities except for heat and hot water. All other utilities, the tenant pays for. Your other challenge is most landlords do not allow pets because their insurance policies restrict liability and damage to human beings - not pets. Therefore, you need to call several insurance companies and ask about pet insurance. You will need to pay for it. Once you have proof of pet insurance WITH liability and damage coverage, landlords will be more accepting to take you as a tenant. The negative side is if anybody is injured or your pet damages anything, you will be sued. ... more

Both of the articles you've written are completely worthless. A good article on real estate would go into depth on specific topics that will help consumers. Your articles are too broad and too general and just a basic overlay which readers don't need. There are thousands of real estate articles that have already been written that are better than yours.

The second paragraph in your current article needs to be edited and sentences need to be deleted immediately.
"So, if you have other options for raising money, Haysha suggests to think about the option of not borrowing, or do not raise a loan if you have other solutions. Banks and lending institutions are not the only entitities that can helkp you finance a property. In fact, you can gain ownership of real estte without using a bank. Nowadays there is a variety of payment options to choose from. So instead of financing your investment with cash down payment or a traditional conventional mortgage, you can use other financial methods like owner financing, hard money, private money, or even partnership, for your real estate deals."

You failed to explain that this is the worst recommendation and buyers would lose thousands of dollars following this advice. You need to research any recommendations thoroughly before publishing it in an article. Example: interest rates on hard money and private loans are 10x the interest rates on standard mortgage loans.

Hello Catherine, I hope you found a place to rent by now. You could rent 3-4 bedroom 2 bath single family homes in Sacramento up to $1,800 rent. You should also study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments.

You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about the same as rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs. You may qualify to purchase 3-4 bedroom 2 bath single family homes for less monthly payment than rent in Sacramento.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.
