It's always difficult to determine costs such as this, since there are so many variables. I would think that with the various things that you need replaced and repaired, it would be best to just talk with some different contractors. Then you could get different quotes on the cost and see what would be good for you. I'm sure that each contractor has a different price, so you'll not only want to look at price, but also their quality of service! ... more

I am sure they are aware and are working to minimize if not eliminate the scammers. Meanwhile, we in the realtor community also work hard to increase awareness of the red flags, asking a person to wire money, especially over seas, a price that is 'too good to be true' (usually IS too good to be true) and refusing to meet the other party face to face. ... more

Very simple. We lender have to estimate what your taxes will be at closing. So in most cases the current taxes are higher than they will be when your tax assessor's office get around to reassessing them later that year or the next. So after the taxes are paid, we cannot have too much of your money in your impound account or we can get in trouble and have to pay you interest. So any excess is refunded to the borrower in order to bring the impound account to an acceptable balance. When I closed on my home, they impounded 12 months of taxes, at the end of the year I received a check for over $2,000.00. Came in handy right around Xmas. Always remember, "When in doubt...Reach out". If you are worried about it call your current loan servicer. ... more

Here in Colorado Springs we have title companies that provide us agents with weekly updated lists. So, talk to an agent and see if they have access to that. It's actually easier to go through and keep up with than using a newspaper. If that isn't available then I would do the newspaper. ... more

Harold W. Reiser III answered:
An appraisal would generally come in much less on a home with a crawl space than it would on a home with a basement. Without a full basement you are losing storage space. Your utilities, which are usually in the basement (ie; hot water heater, furnace, electric panel) all then move into space within the home itself causing you to lose actual living space. If you are still looking for a home, or more advice, please feel free to contact me via the information on my agent profile. Thank you. ... more

I feel Trulia should moderate such posts and remove them. I've flagged the post as nonsense.

Ralph Windschuh answered:
Most contracts have an "on or about" date as the closing date which usually means that the closing date will be set anywhere 30 days before or after that date. You should consult with your attorney about your options but I doubt there's really anything you can do. Sorry. I hope it all works out and wish you many happy and healthy years in your new home - when it eventually closes.

Cindy Quade answered:
It depends upon how elaborate you want these shelves to be - that would determine if they can be hand made or door fronts purchased and the boxes hand made. I know a guy who is great at this - he has done quite a bit for me in my home. If you would like his information I can provide that. ... more

Banks are very specific about certain terms, They usually want a fast close. In this market everything is negotable if you have the right agent.

Rachel A Kopp answered:
You can also hook up with a good Realtor who can send sold listings to your email.
Ideally the listings are changed to a sold status within a couple of days after the closing, and there will be information available about the price it sold at, as well as any additional terms (i.e. seller's concession, days on market, etc.).
Sorry I did not notice this question sooner, but if you are still needing assistance you may find my contact info below.
