A short sale will often hurt your credit - and your credit history matters whether you want to buy or rent.
If you can afford to, your best bet is to move before you try to sell your current house because that way any credit impact form the short sale - or foreclosure - hits your credit history.
Just because you want to do a short sale doesn't mean your lender will. If you try to go that route, there's always a chance your lender won't accept whatever offer you do get and your home will end up in foreclosure anyway.... more
If it's fraudulent here, it's probably on Craigslist. I would look on there to see and flag it. Unfortunately, this is happening more and more. It happens to a lot of agents. We list a home and someone copies the pics and info and lists it on sites as a cheap rental and scams people out of rent. They are very clever. I've seen it where they must have looked up the tax records of the owner and created an email account that includes the owners name to make it look more legit. I had a listing a few years ago that sold but someone had posted it as a rental. Someone fell for it and mailed them money then went to the house looking for a key and trying to get in. They are lucky they didn't get shot. It's a horrible thing these creeps do and I hope that this site and others crack down on them more.... more
Glad to help. The CRC is the Community Resource Center. Hope you found it off Waller's Mill Road behind KMart. Easy to find, on the left. Some yellow buses are in the parking lot. I've worked with my church to get housing for people and the church sends them to CRC which is equipped to help people. They do a marvelous job, can set up medical care also.... more

Curious why this question has arisen in N. Va.
Here's the explanation:
Most of our contracts are written subject to a home inspection for material adverse defects- not cosmetic.
The repairs to be agreed upon by Buyer and Seller. Prior to settlement Buyer has the right to do a walk through to
1- make sure all items on home inspection that were agreed upon have been taken care of, 2- to check to make sure no "new" material defects have occurred since the home inspection and then to make sure everything is in working order or whatever has been agreed upon in writing between buyer and seller. The buyer cannot ask the seller to repair things that were part of the home inspection- but were agreed upon by all parties "not" to repair. We have no limit of liability on the Home Inspection, but typically have a limit of liability (for seller) on the walk through. We encourage buyer to do a home inspection without exception. Hope this helps clarify. Barbara Levine... more
Some agents are born to be listing agents and others are born to be buyers agents, not many can work bith sides and be great at it. Listing agents require patience and alot of knowledge of teh area they want to list in. Referrals are the best source of new listings, do a good job and everyone will know.... more

This was posted several months ago. I am courious how it was resolved.
I know personally that if I found out a house was in the 300 year flood plain I would not buy it. That is enough to stop the purchase. If it truly is in a flood zone and it was not disclosed I would think that material loss of disclosure would have protected the buyers. am I right?... more
Townhomes in all of Powahatan are pretty much selling for the tax assessed values today, which would place your unit at around $249,900. Some properties owned by original purchasers have sold for far less, which obviously hurts the values of current home owners.
I'm the only Realtor in all of Hampton Roads who specializes just in townhome and condo communities so if you need any additional information, please never hesitstae to contact me any time.
This home was under contract in four days and closed 24 days after being listed for it's full asking price. It does not state wherther any closing costs or other arrangements were part of the deal. The home was in excellent condition and staged or lived in very well. Not too many homes have sold in Seasons Trace this fast for full price in this market. The lesson here is the best priced home in the best condition has the best chance of selling. Both agents involved served their clients well. The selling agent had to know the market and comparable properties, and the agents client had to trust him. And no-I was not the selling or listing agent!... more
