Kathy Burgreen answered:
Yes the price can change because there is no contract signed. If the agents read the question correctly, the buyer just submitted an offer - there is no signed contract. Therefore, even if the offer was signed and deposit accepted, there is no signed contract. Obviously, agents don’t read questions. ... more

If you're having issues with your buyer's agent... you might try talking to her managing broker. Without knowing what the problems are, I can't answer whether you should report her, or if there is time to change agents.

But a frank conversation with her managing broker might help get some clarity.

You need to make sure you are buying in a good neighborhood at a very attractive price.
This is obtained by dividing the annual costs from the net annual rental income.

Either one is fine. You can ask your realtor to connect you with lenders that she/he usually work with.

I solved my problem with a German made electronic anti-scaler. It works great and its very popular in farming applications, preventing hard water problems related to well water. My house is in Round Rock TX that has a hardness of 11 grains per gallon average, which is considered hard according to USGS standards. Hard water scale in pipes will surely occur in the long run, but problems with your sprinkler valves due to calcium scale are absolutely common in this area mainly because of high evaporation in the outdoor summer heat. Hard water will also cause common ice maker and dish washer related issues. I always say preventive maintenance is an owners choice. I personally dislike dealing with calcium deposits around my faucets, showers and sinks, but above all, the thing I dislike the most is the slippery feeling in your body, after taking a hard earned shower, at the end of the day with softened water. Its like washing yourself with sea water. The sodium added to the water just wont allow proper soap rinsing and you never get to feel really clean. My house came with a huge Salt Water Softener, with two big tanks that took a lot of space in my garage which is not huge. After a long research, I decided to replace our salt softener with a Vulcan-Texas Anti-Scaler from Techno Mechanical Solutions in Austin. An affordable and eco-friendly way to prevent hard water issues without using salts. I was able to do the installation myself over the old softener pipes. The Vulcan requires no maintenance, just install and forget about it. No more salt buying trips to Lowes and carrying those back breaking bags. No more slippery feeling after taking a shower. No more calcium buildup around my fixtures or sprinkler valves. Water treated with Vulcan is safe for garden irrigation, your sprinkler system may also be protected. Vulcan dismantles prior limestone accumulations. Any pipe material may be treated up to 20 inches in diameter. The maintenance free Vulcan is very compact and sits of top of your pipe, saving all garage floor space for your favorite toys. Great for eliminating water lines and improve filtration in pools and spas. German engineering with 10 year warranty. Treatment for a normal size house with up to 1 1/2 inch pipe around $1000. Vulcan-Texas is space saver, effective, simple and affordable. Forgot to mention, my morning coffee tastes better without salt. ... more
