unless there is a dramatic reason it does bind you or the landlord. Unless you both can agree to dissolve the lease between you two. also you can google some of the same cases trough legal blogs. ... more

Judy Schroeder answered:
It is common for someone to move from their current home to a new home that needs renovations. You will have a limit on how long you have to get the renovations done and move in but off the top of my head I think it is 140-days which allows quite a bit of time for work.

Also, I would suggest that you speak to a lender about the Fannie Mae Homestyle Renovation loan for your new purchase or even for your current residence to do the work necessary before selling it.

The Homestyle loan is similar to the 203K in many ways, with its own advantages, and allows for the purchase or renovation of a single unit second home or single unit investment property with a low down payment.

I would recommend speaking to your current lender, or another that you trust about your options. You can also contact me and my husband if you would like to discuss our personal experiences (primary residence and investment) with these loan types at 732-500-4457. We could probably offer you a few useful tips.

Best of luck!

Possibly, but that will be on an individual basis. Best bet is to call places you are interested in to check. You could also check to see if renting from an owner who meets the age requirement will be an option. Good luck.

If you want some advice on who to retain and what steps you need to take to prepare for the short sale process before you move forward, let me know.
I've worked with many agents and attorneys...I know the better ones that get the job done. Most agents will say they do short sales...ask for specific details on their results.
For example, how many short sales they handled for the past 12 months? how many of them resulted in the seller having to contribute cash at closing? what was the average amount of the cash contribution? how long did the process take? what they do specifically to adjust the listing price to generate a purchase offer?...etc. Many will say they handle short sales...Due your due diligence and make sure you don't get misled.

Typically no. They may wave a few class requirements. I would call the Texas Real Estate Department. Best of luck on your transition!

It is tough for anyone to find a rental right now. Rentals are in very short supply. So many people have been displaced by Sandy. So many people who thought they would be back in their homes are finding that they cannot move back to their homes yet and are seeking rentals. I tell everyone who is seeking a rental to be very flexible, because there are lots of would-be renters and not enough vacancies to go around. Good luck. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
Hi Kathleen,

This is an interesting question.....if I understand this correctly, since Alabama is one of the states that Florida has a reciprocal agreement with, the question becomes one of whether Florida will accept a reciprocal arrangement from a previously non-accepted reciprocal agreement.

To be on the safe side, it probably would be best to check with Florida's FREC. They will be able to provide you with the clarity you require.

Good luck,

Bill

You can complete your pre-license course for FL online, and even take your FL state licensing test through a testing center in NJ, if you want to prepare before you move.

Leslie Tucker answered:
Comps are an integral part of all Realtors ability to correctly price a home in todays market. However, I have always been a huge believer in assessing value of a home individually because they are all different and each has their own pluses and minuses. Comps help but are not the be all and end all to pricing a home correctly for the market. Also proper and aggressive marketing to pinpoint your homes correct market audience is integral and an agent needs a strong marketing toolbox. I would be happy to review my marketing capabilities and the strength of correctly evaluating your homes market value. Please feel free to reach out to me. My office is in Red Bank. Thanks so much. ... more
