Malcolm Lawson answered:
typically it is done during the same window as the home inspection,. Sometimes they buyers don't plan on doing one until the home inspector tells them he has seen signs of termite damage and recommends one. In situations like that they may need more time to schedule the additional inspection and you may need to be a little flexible with them or they may walk. ... more

For a typical 1,100 sq ft apartment, you're looking at around $400. There are many variable factors here though. The best thing would be to see how your fist month goes and budget accordingly. If you need any help finding a place I'd be more than happy to help you. My number is (443) 633-8852 and my email address is ... more

Tim Moore answered:
Self employed people must show 2 years of tax returns to show what income they had, this is often a problem as self employed do all they can to not show income for which they must pay taxes on. You need to go sit down with a loan officer and take the last two years of tax returns with you. Then you can find out for sure. ... more

Thanks all - I am checking this board after a while and appreciate the insight provided. It was a tough call to make, but the CMAs we saw looked like we would just about break even if had a competitively priced rental.

We decided to go that route, and the home is currently on the market. ( Feel free to message me if you would like to know more about the listing..)

I'm assuming you mean Trulia* and Zillow*. You can edit your home's fact by clicking the "Correct Home Facts" button on Zillow and "Edit Home Facts" button on Trulia. Hope this helps!

Don Tepper answered:
Then don't buy.

Or, better, work the numbers. Various expensive items (roofs, HVAC units, etc.) have fairly predictable lives. You might find that some of the expensive items have already been replaced.

I just rehabbed a 40-year-old townhouse. There really weren't any big surprises. We redid the kitchen, refinished the floors, converted a downstairs room from paneling and dropped ceiling to drywall, etc.

A 40-year-old townhouse should be structurally sound. You may find that you need to upgrade the electrical, simply because 40 years ago homeowners didn't have all the appliances they have today. We didn't have to do that in the townhouse, but I also rehabbed a single-family home, about 60 years old, that did need some electrical upgrades.

Get a home inspector in there to give you an idea of the likely remaining usable life of the systems. Then work the numbers.

Hope that helps.

The Roskelly Team answered:
Make sure that when you hire an agent to represent you that they have a Trulia account and are familiar with how to update a property. In the greater scheme of things, the value Trulia lists is pretty irrelevant as any agents who show the home will use comparable sales data to determine an offer price. ... more

Greg Myers answered:

Try searching the "Pleasant Fields" subdivision which feeds into the Great Seneca Creek Elem.
The specific street names are Metz Dr. and Kitchen House and Open Hearth Way. These streets are showing town home "SOLD" data around $250,000.

There are condo's in the area you requested as well.

Give Brent a call for your loan pre-qualification, he is well respected by the many Realtor's on Trulia.

Maureen Bovello answered:
Hi Stacy,

There is a field that can be added through the MRIS system for Elementary, Middle or High School where an agent can add the field and fill in the appropriate school you are looking for. If you send me the school name and whether it is elementary, middle or high school I would be happy to see what comes up and email it to you. You can send your email address to my email directly

Warm Regards,
