It is called a Last Will and Testament (or Will for short).

Call an attorney or google an on-line form service. The key requirement is that a Will must be state specific and is governed by where you live, regardless of where the property may be. ... more

Victory Property Management answered:
It all depends if there is a demand for that type of property. You could own a one-of-a-kind property but if it is in an area that no one wants to live in, then you will still have trouble selling.

An investor is going to offer less than a typical owner occupant because they intend to make money on the resale. Often their discount rate is 30% off market value.

Why don't you talk to a local real estate agent and see what they suggest. Though you pay them commission out of your sales price, they will also work hard to get you the best price available.

Trulia doesn't allow for sale by owner listings, you will have to have it listed by an agent if you wish to have it featured on this site.

Good afternoon, KellAnn:
NC is probably different than FL. LPN is a 3 semester program that appears to require a high school diploma as a prerequisite for enrollment. There are some concurrent enrollment possibilities for some High School seniors. In Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) students can take AP classes that count towards college credit if the end of course test scores are 5's. A HS student might strategically take LPN required courses at the AP level to satisfy the general requirements of the LPN certificate, then only have a few requirements remaining after graduation. Here is a good place to start. After researching, I would check into a CMS magnet program high school to see what tracks they offer and check with a community college to see what coursework is required and whether HS AP would satisfy it. We are also close to SC, so the above strategy might also work in York or Lancaster County, SC areas. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click. ... more

Good afternoon, Rykat:
You might want to read the Trulia Blog series "How to Choose a Neighborhood" (link below) . Trulia has a great info source on this neighborhood, Overview, Market Trends, Schools, Crime and Community Info as part of the Providence Plantation area. If the home you are thinking about buying is a new home, you may want to consider having a new home agent advocate.
We know a couple without children who lives there and think it is a nice stable area. For many buyers and renters, which school attendance zone the home is within is very important. If you have a specific Mecklenburg County address and want to know which public school children living there will attend, there is a handy Mecklenburg County School Lookup site in the Trulia Blog "Which areas surrounding Charlotte would be a nice place to relocate?" If you have school age children, I suggest that you check addresses against this link and determine if the schools are going to serve your child's educational needs. If you have a full time agent with a Masters degree in Planning with Finance and over two decades of experience, working for you, you will likely do better in negotiations. I'd be pleased to provide that service. If you appreciate this answer, please give it a thumbs up, or if this was the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.

Hi Diane,

The answers below are correct. Trulia doesn't automatically receive all MLS listings. However your mother's agent can easily submit her home to us via the link below. The process is quick and easy, and her listing should be live on our site within one hour.

Best Wishes,
