Well I can't say why trulia isn't able to update such info, sometimes homes are sold "silently" and it takes them a little longer to catch up when this happens, they aren't able to see this until the public records change. If your interested though, there's a beautiful community currently in the process of developing and it's in an even nicer area near by, called rose ridge, located on st. Rose 89052. They have 12 layouts in all, unless ur looking to buy now they do have some ready to move in. It's nice because they are brandnew, they come with appliances fully loaded, and the prices are reasonable. Especially when u compare them to homes, USED in this area. You can go there and tour the 6 models they have already built, and furnished to get an idea. I have been there twice myself, and my husband and I are supposed to go together to decide on one. You should check it out tho. ... more

Contact a General Contractor (email me if you need a contact). They will need to get a permit to fill it in properly.

I would recommend Henderson or Summerlin area. You want to have a high demand area were you can demand a higher rent and have renters that will pay for it.

Your financing is not contingent upon you getting a "reasonable insurance policy"... in fact, you can finance and get insurance later (and if you don't, they'll auto charge you for one). ... more

Hello Shady,

What is the non-refundable deposit for? Is it for the land transaction itself, or for the agent's commissions? Something sounds funny here...

Joni Greer answered:

I understood your question to be if you can get your EMD back if you fail on paying your mortgage, rather than if you fail to obtain a loan on a purchase. If this is your question, in California the standard is that the homeowner does not normally get their deposit back because it is offset by the amount you owe the bank due to default. However, as always please consult with a good real estate attorney.

I would suggest to set down with your agent and talk about this, it seems that he/she did not go over this when you put the multiple offers.

It depends on the builder. Best bet is to call them directly if they are still in business and find out. Hopefully they will honor it.

Appraisals are order independently and remain third party invovlement in a sales transaction. The most accurate a Realtor can suggest a value would be based upon recent sales (comps) of similar properties in the subject area. ... more

Good questions. Yes, many short sales have prior bank approval. I have worked on bank short sales that already had approval from the bank if the short sale offer came in at 85% of the outstanding loan balance. If you have the Sellers signatures, and then the bank approves the short sale IN are as good as done. Get your loan, and move to closing! Remember that most of these loans must have the closing documents in the hands of the closing attorney/agent at least 4 days before the actual closing so they can overnight the paperwork back and forth with the short sale lender. Good luck to you. ... more

Bill Bentley answered:
In any Real Estate Transaction, an agent has certain duties and responsibilities to their client. When an agent becomes a dual agent (if the parties agree) he/she will have inside information from both sides. This is information that he can not share with the other party and so if you are anticipating gaining an advantage from that - it will not happen. In fact most agents are extra carful in these cases so that one side does not get the impression that the agent is working harder for the other side. Some times, in my opinion, Instead of leading the way in negotiations, the agent becomes more of a messenger.

The main advantage is control of the process. Your agent will not have to worry about having an under preforming/non responsive agent on the other side (hopefully!) and it usually makes for a smoother deal.

There is nothing wrong with these types of deals if you are so inclined but I would recommend that before you commit to the agent that you consult with him/her. If you are not comfortable then advise the agent that you are going to seek out your own agent for representation, I dont believe this would hurt your chances one way or the other as some agents dont want to represent both sides because of the potential liability.Good Luck.
