Hello,

We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia. We can remove the photos of your property if you want.

Cassandra Vickers answered:
Good morning,

It depends on the average time to sell and the known conditions of the home, if any. Have you had a recent inspection? If not I would suggest you have an inspection done because the buyer most likely will. I would have to run a market analysis to see the average selling time and comparable prices for homes that are similar to yours in order to determine the chances of selling as is. There are also other factors to consider as far as buyer financing, some lenders won't underwrite a loan that has safety related repairs that aren't corrected prior to closing.

Hello again,

Following up on my answer, do you obtain your free credit reports that you are entitled to every year? It would really benefit you knowing what is on the report. Some times, you may have something that should have settled already. Call or email and I will guide you.

As a long-time property owner and lessor, I place greater emphasis upon rental history than credit score. If your current landlord can provide a letter of reference, or even speak with your potential new landlord, it will go a long way toward getting you a new place to live. You might also want to check Craigslist and the local "green sheets" for rentals advertised directly by the owners. You should be fine ... best of luck. ... more

Monica ...

KB Home is a "mass-market" builder. What I suggest you do is walk through the development and speak with the homeowners. They'll be happy to talk to you about the good, the bad, and the ugly. Focus on how well the company has responded to issues within the warranty period ... after they have your money.

Quality and consistency can vary from site to site because of the different supervisors and subcontractors ... and outside of Houston, pretty much anything goes (building codes don't apply) ... so once under contract, I'd have an independent home inspection done, even though the structure is new (guaranteed the inspector will find things wrong) ... definitely worth the few hundred dollars for the peace of mind it brings. Remember that the salespeople are just that ... they work for the builder, are not required to hold a real estate license, and their sole objective is to sell you a house. In addition, you'd be signing a sales contract written by the builders' attorneys, not the Texas Real Estate Commission ... guess which side it favors.

Because of all this, you need to be represented by a Realtor. The builders' side is well covered, but your best interests are not, when dealing direct. There is no cost to you as a buyer (makes it a no-brainer), although some builders will openly advertise a discount for coming in unrepresented. I can tell you for certain that they're not going to let potential buyers walk, simply because they have someone on their side ... and remember, irrespective of their advertising, everything is negotiable (another reason not to undertake the largest purchase of your life without an advocate).

I'd love to work with you. Let's take a walk through the development and get some homeowners' feedback. Looking forward to hearing from you ...

Nasyim Segal answered:
It usually boils down to 3 things that are not always listed in the advertising:

1. Communication - You want a company that will communicate with you regularly (i.e. return calls), and answer your questions with clarity.

2. Customer Service - A company that has honesty, integrity, and puts the clients first is of upmost importance. This can be hard to decifer by a website or a single conversation, so visit their office or ask your Realtor their recommendations.

3. Experience - The real estate and lending fields can be overwhelming to a first time agent or lender. The more experience they have the more fires they've battled, and the more likely they'll be able to find the right answers or know someone who does. This can make a difference in time sensative transations where your money or home of your dream is on the line.

Lou Wissner answered:
It would be in your best interest to interview and schedule the inspection. Your real estate agent can recommend several in your area that they have used in the past. Thou I would still do your homework and check them out. I got started in the home inspection business because of an inspector that was recommended and I failed to due my homework. Not that the agent gave me a bad lead, but the inspector and I did not mesh. So with a construction background and several more years of schooling I became a home inspector. Do your homework on whomever you choose to use.

Can you take over payments? VA loans are assumable, is it a VA loan. Also , when you take over payments are you getting all the benefits as the actual homeowner? I would definitely carefully review the agreement concerning who will pay the taxes, insurance, HOA dues, pay for repairs, etc.. What would happen if the actual homeowner passes away? ... more

Terry Kraemer answered:
Some listing agent are buyers agents, some buyers agents are also listing agents. Some are exclusive to one or the other. Both can be a Realtor®, but they may not be." A real estate agent is a REALTOR® when he or she is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics. " *1* When a home owner decides to sell their home they find an agent to list and market their home for them. They enter into an agreement. Usually an exclusive agreement. That person becomes the listing agent. The listing agent agrees to pay any buyers agent who can find a buyer for the home a percentage of the fee they charge the home owner. If you are buying a home, it is best to have a buyer's agent represent you in the purchase and a good realtor should be able to refer you to someone that will be able to help you with the financing. The sellers agent has a fiduciary duty to the home owner. Once you agree in writing to work with the buyers agent that agent then has a fiduciary duty to you. So they become your advocate to help you throughout the entire process. Hope this helps. Good Luck .Terry
