Back in 2016 we had one major drawback. Hubby lost his job, I had an accident that made me quit my job as well. We collected thousands of money from our Home Equity line of credit (HELOC) account which works sort of like a credit card to raise our son through college. This caused our credit scores to drop drastically, the bank almost terminated our line of credit and at that point I almost regretted my existence in life.
I am using this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to my sister and her BFF she introduced to us as a credit score hacker and counselor. He cleared our HELOC debt of $142,000 and raised our scores to 765 and 758. My special thanks goes to this genius hacker, we purchased our second home last week. As we have promised to give him more clients if he should successfully fix our problems. We are living testimonies and confident of this miracle worker to handle all jobs, I will implore everyone facing challenges with credit scores, credit report,bankruptcy,mortgage issues to reach him on pyramideye(.)hack( a t)outlook(.)com

Janice Sturgeon answered:
Many associations view the 80/20 rule different. All must have 80% of the owners at least 55 and over (one occupant at east in the condo) When the ratio gets close to the 80 they will not allow a younger person in. Some associations will never let a younger than 55 person in because when an owner passes and the inherited person is less than 55 and that makes the ratio change. ... more

Hi, Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area. We started UpNest ( to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to "comparison shop" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck! ... more

Qdessa - Buying or renting is never just as easy as a Credit score! Owners,
Lenders, and Managers are interested in credentials which
show Stability ! Income, Job and Resident history, debts as well
as Savings are all seen as important too.!
In short- credit scores in 600's or better would be the norm to
start. But ,one's score would be one of a number of considerations.
as to what you could look to buy or rent!

For both Renting and Buying one Large determinant is Debt
to Income in Buying, and Rent to income ratio for renting!
Best to get feed-back after a consult with a Realtor familiar
with options and then Pre-qualification from a Lender. Contact
me directly for more on this ..Glad to help !

Alma Kee answered:
Probably difficult if you cannot close within 45 days. On REOs you're usually competing with mutliple offers and they'll select the highest and best. A closing date beyond 45 days is tough. The ones that don't sell quickly are in ugly or functionally bad condition so probably not eligible for NSP money anyway.

Of course Short Sales are out... a buyer must be able to close within 45 days... and the NSP money usually requires a property to be in good condition and depending on the county may even require a full size refrigerator. Many short sale owners strip the house of appliances of light fixtures.

It will make your search fairly easy... only regular sales.

All the best,

Hi Rodney, I could find no evidence of this home being for sale, but I did find a rental listing without the unit number...apparently, A thru D are the unit numbers for this address.

Here is the link to the rental listing:,sublet,room,corporate&loan=30,0.0525,0

Best wishes, Jim

Dear Mario,
Palm Beach County is the largest county in Florida. As you can imagine, there will be areas with more and less crime. If you are considering to relocate to the West Palm Beach area for work, then you will have a many options of places to buy or rent. You need to work with an agent who will listen to your needs and help you find the best options available for you.

I cover the area between West Palm Beach and Jupiter and would be happy to help you find a property to buy or rent.
Sincerely, Susanna Grubb

Pat & Steve Pribisko answered:
You signed a contact. You have caused the property to be off of the market for a "couple of months," which prevented the Seller from marketing the property to others. I am assuming that you are well past the inspection stage. The Seller & your agent are just waiting the for the closing date. You can walk away, but the Seller can sue you for damages once the property has been sold to another Buyer. Money held in escrow will probably stay where it is, because the Seller will not sign a release. You need to talk to your Realtor about your decision. Your Realtor has already done a lot of work. If you signed a Buyer's Agreement, you may already owe your Realtor compensation for his/her services. You may want to consult with an Attorney who handles residential real estate matters before you walk away.

Tom Priester answered:
Mar Ran,

There has been a tremendous amount of sales activity in Cresthaven over the past 90 days with 16 successful closings ranging in sales price from $19,900 up to $61,500. The median sold property went for $32,000 and had about 945 livable square feet which would be about $34 per livable square foot. Some sales were above that level and some below.

If you need assistance in finding the perfect Cresthaven home please feel free to contact me and I would be more than happy to help. Once I learn more about your specific needs I can provide you detailed information on any homes that may be a fit.

I hope that this information helps answer your questions but if you need anything additional I am here.

Always at Your Service,
