You should definitely speak to a CPA. Tax questions can be very complicated and while you may get some accurate advice through the internet, everyone's situation is different, and almost assuredly no one here is an expert on tax law. That said, you may find the article at informative.

At this time, unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

I wonder where information comes from for this site. The price we paid for our home on 3619 Desert Fox Dr in Sparks Nevada wasn't $279,900. I wish it had been that price. The actual…

No, Suzanne. The bond is for owner occupied purchases only. Cash and conventional are the only viable ways to flip a property. You can check with your lender for more information. If you don't have a relationship with a lender yet, let me know. I would be happy to refer you to one. Good luck. ... more

I'll agree that in the last several months there has definitely been a spike in buyers, resulting in competitive offers increasing...

Can there still be a bottom ahead of us? Absolutely. What are the chances prices continue to drop? I believe slim to none. ... more

The simple answer is that there isn't an exact percentage. If the property is a short sale or REO, then it can be pretty easy to figure out what the lender is going to be willing to take. If your agent is knowledgeable, they should have an idea of what the lender will be willing to accept once they determine who the lender is, and what type of loan it is.

However if the home is being sold as a traditional sale without any lender involved, an experienced buyers agent should be able to probe the listing agent for information and clues about what the seller's motivation is behind wanting to sell. This information will help you determine how quickly the need to sell. If their situation wont allow them to hold out for the best offer, then you should be able to negotiate a lower price. Obviously, the more urgent the need to sell, the lower in price they are likely to go.

Dear Kitty..
That's interesting. So the other homes were not on the market until yours was? I would not chase prices like that. I think you should stick with what you have, but work with any good buyers who make offers. Many deals are lost when one party or the other refuses to negotiate on price. If your home is the better house, the buyer will see that too. ... more

Hi Dennis,

Have you checked multiple lending sources? Consider opening other doors to see what they reveal.....................

Our recommendation is to continue doing what you are doing by remaining active and collecting information that will equip you for making the right decision when the time is right. There are things you can be doing:

1. always check multiple funding sources...

2. identify the characteristics of your future home

3. consider possible locations

4. attend open houses

5. identify an agent

6. request foreclosure lists from an agent

7. continue to follow Trulia listings

Good luck
