Normantate1988 answered:
I lived on the third floor of a brown house/building on chestnut from age 1 or 2-5. My grandparents owned the house directly across from the soup kitchen. An old lady named Normie lived in the little house in between. My mom says I used to talk to a “witch” under my bed who would give me coins/money. It chills me to the bone even though the memories are suppressed, the emotions are not. Probably explains my life long obsession with the unexplained. I saw your post after google searching haunted places in Nashua nh chestnut street by I was looking to verify my own claims/suspicions ... more

If the property is in "Pending" status, this means that an offer has been made and is in the process of closing.

Conventional guidelines permit your total debts (including the proposed house payment with taxes and insurance) to total about 45% of your gross monthly income. So based on your current debts that totals a house payment of roughly $1000/month. A ballpark estimate of a price range is probably $125,000-$130,000 depending on how much the property taxes and homeowner's insurance are per year.

FHA guidelines permit up to a 55% debt-to-income ratio (although not all LENDERS will go that high). So that would put your max payment about $1575/month. That's a ballpark of maybe $200,000-$210,000.

These are just estimates. The best thing to do is speak to a lender directly and provide some basic income and asset documentation so you can find out an accurate amount regarding your price range.

Feel free to shoot me a message with your contact information and I'd be glad to walk you through your options!

Absolutely yes. The more research and investigation you perform before purchasing a house the better!

George Rauh answered:
I would wait for the job to cure before I did anything like sell the house. I would wait because the first year of any job is called the 'Honey Moon'. The real job comes down after that. If you are well under way into that second side, and husband says that he still likes job, then move.

If you are still heck bent on moving, you have to say to self what can I afford, and go that route. I would, off the hip shot, say Lowell Mass. Close to both cities.

My vote is to hold your home till all feels comfortable in the move, less, of course, it is a no brainer, and husband owns the business, or is that confident that he will like the job after a year.

Hope this helps.

Tretre answered:
Ray you really should meet with a local attorney for at least the first free meeting to get some direction, you will need to prove they knew about it and concealed it. You will need to look at the sellers property information report and see what they wrote in under basement leakage, you will then need to review your insopection report, review what waivers you signed and also see if this crack was noticeable with the naked eye if you walked around the whole perimter of the basement. ... more

Abe Mills answered:
I highly doubt the crack is anything to worry about. If you have a poured concrete foundation especially, Surface cracks happen, but they by no means are a suggestion of an inferior foundation. I would be willing to bet there is either a step in the wall, or a window right near this crack isn't there?

Good Luck!
