Our buyer was initially approved for a loan to purchase our house with a 5% down payment. However, the credit score expired, and when the lender re-pulled it, it had gone down 100 points…

Be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, so the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.

I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience before, as a Realtor I am glad to know that my clients got educated about the real estate market with websites like this before even contact a realtor to work with. We are living and doing business in the Internet era and that is a major invention that make our job easier for our clients because it gives them a lot of information and as a Realtor we are here to answer all your real estate questions and regarding your question I will list some reasons for what you would need a Realtor to sell your home:

-We will market your home in the MLS, the major website for homes inventory.
-We will priced your home to sell, not just give you estimations but give you an actual price to sell.
-We are going to make sure that your property will be advertised in major websites, local newspaper, real estate brokerage, neighbors, etc. You will probably see your home everywhere the next day you sign the listing agreement.
-Printing materials is one of many marketing techniques we use.
-We are going to have records for everyone who enters in your home and you won't need to be present every time an agent calls you to show your home and won't even need to worry about security issues.
-In my case I will be at escrow with you at the time of signing sales paper for any question you may have.

The list continues on, and remember we are here for a reason, this is a profession and you would need a professional to sell your home and the fact that the internet exist makes us an essential tool at the time to buy or sell a home.

Make sure to interview your next Realtor and if you go FSBO I wish you the best of luck.

Our property management company doesn't base our dog-related decisions on breed. If your dog is over fifty pounds, we require it to have a AKC Canine Good Citizen certification (for info, go to ). This program is open to all dogs, regardless of breed or mix, and tests aggression levels and owner control.

If your dog passes this test, you would be approved for any of our almost 300 properties in the Indianapolis area that allow pets. We don't have many vacancies at the moment, but I believe all of them would allow your dog if it met that condition.

The answer to your question is yes. There are property owners that will allow tenants to have pets in their properties. There is normally a Pet Deposit Fee in the range of $200 to $300 required at the time you sign your lease as well as the standard one month's Security Deposit. If your family pet is a dog you may encounter some challenges if it is a certain breed of dog. Property owners insurance policies will not allow for these certain indentified breeds of dogs to be kept on the property because it voids the owners liability coverage and puts them at risk of being named a party in a legal action. Hope this answer you question. Happy Hunting !! If I can assist you in any way, please feel free to call. ... more
