What good is a warranty when they don't honor it. We've bought our home since 07/2014 and are still waiting for Delano Crown Warranty to fix the settling issues we're having with our home. There are cracks in our home, and because the house is still shifting we have doors that no longer close. The cracks have gotten bigger, while we are forced to be at the mercy of crown warranty patiently waiting. Communication is the absolute worst. You continuously send emails till your blue in the face ; and then you wait & wait & wait for someone ( anyone) to respond . Next step for us will be BBB because this is unacceptable. ... more

I would recommend you research the mandatory HOA dues in Northridge and other neighborhoods alike.
Having a real estate agent is key to finding this information out ahead of time.
BTW, I personally like the neighborhood but if $1400/yr is more than you are willing to pay then you may decide to look at other neighborhoods with comparable amenities and location.

I can also be reached for mortgage financing options and neighborhood analysis.

I had a buyer that wanted to buy a home in Arizona, but he had a Chapter 7 bankruptcy 7 months ago. I introduced a loan program at, they allow a mortgage after a foreclosure, short sale, or bankruptcy. There is only a six month waiting period. This is perfect for individuals looking to become homeowners again. ... more

Providing you have references, an explanation of why the scores are where they are, and a satisfactory criminal background check, most property management companies will take your scores into consideration but not flat out exclude you because of it.

The good folks at Morgan Smith Realty should be able to tell you pretty quick what your ability to rent is (I do not work for them).

Currie Miller answered:
The area that you are trying to purchase in can makea big difference, as the exact condition of the market varies from place to place. For example, in the Augusta/Evans area, we don't have a large amount of foreclosures, but we have large amounts of moderately priced new construction. I would agree with Lee, that you may want to seek the help of a Realtor in the area you are purchasing, even if the home is a for sale by owner, often the seller will agree to work with a Realtor if the buyer requests it. The bottom line is that you should offer what you think is fair based on the appraisal you had done and keep in mind that the tax value has little to do with the market value. The tax value is the amount the county will assess your taxes on and you will definitely want it tb be assessed for less than 290k, even if you pay that much as it will save you on your annual tax bill. Again, I would suggest you seek some help, as many buyers aren't aware of all of the intricacies of purchasing a home including having inspections, asking for repairs, unforseen delays and how to handle them, etc. Best of luck to you! ... more

Depends. Does the entire neighborhood have them or just this one house? Is it a set of power lines that the property back up to(like in Northwood maybe), or do you mean the lines run to the houses directly above the homes(like West Hampton)? ask your agent for their advice too. Lots of homes sell with power lines near them, but just as they are affecting you, they could potentially effect another home buyer when you try to sell.
