I would say yes. Alot of people who have bad credit is simply because hospital bills that their insurance didn't cover. Dont judge someone just because of their credit score.

A brand new system can get expensive. I have helped many homeowners in Walpole through the process. Start with a reputable local septic contractor and engineer. It may not always be best to have the septic contractor recommend a engineer - a few phone calls will educate you on the process. The last full system in East Walpole was $21,000 for a 4 bedroom system. ... more

Hi Amanda

One of the problems with sites on the Net that only sell ads or just collect email addresses to resell, is that the info on their pages is often meant to cause you to provide your email and name for resale.
(see question: )
Getting the info removed is not easy sometimes.

I'd spread the word to use actual real estate professionals' sites rather than ones where the correctness of the data is not as important as gathering and selling your name and email to the highest bidders.

(Please note: when you choose an answer as a Best Answer, or at least give a thumbs up, it helps those who answer questions here.)

The Town of Walpole, MA does give a variety of abatements, including, but not limited to low income, veterans, disability, blind, elderly, etc. They also will entertain your request for an abatement of taxes due to overvaluation of assessed value. Applications can be date sensitive, and you will likely have to prove eligibility. Visit the Town of Walpole web site at for answers to many of your questions, download forms, or just call their office during regular business hours. You will find the staff most helpful. ... more

Lots of bad information here... I'll give the benefit of the doubt that it's due to differences in state laws or regulations.

Firstly, a commission may be split.. but it must be disclosed to all parties from the very beginning. If not, it is indeed a kickback. Some other posters were correct in mentioning Zip and the like, but note they have mandatory disclosures to notify the parties. your very post ' i found a house that I want to put an offer on ' ... any agent coming in after this fact will not get paid, and thus not be able to split it with you. The fact is that an agent can only come in and get paid if they are the " procuring cause " ... the reason you were interested in the home.

Who showed you the house that caused you to be interested? You are much better dealing with that person as they are indeed the procuring cause.

Both towns are great. I lived in Norwood my first 10 years of life and then lived in Walpole for 16 years. Norwood is a little more built up and a little closer to Boston. Walpole is closer to the staduim. If you want to be in walking distance Norwood is probably a little more doable, however they do not have the shops and restaurants that Brookline can offer. ... more

Steve Casey answered:
You do need a legal agreement. Otherwise you have no problem, tax or otherwise right now. You pay your parents, they pay off the loan, you now own the house with a 10% deposit. There is no immediate tax consequence. In the future you may be effected depending on the rules at the time. Today a single person can enjoy as much as a $250k profit after 2 years. The future problem may be your unrealistic low basis (you purchased at much lower than market price. in other words you could be hit in the future. ... more
