How can anyone trust anything that you two are rambling on about. Both of you have information on business website links that are no longer valid.

Most of the Consumers looking to purchase a home for that matter, Can never do so, because the current market is requesting that a consumer make 2 or in most cases 3 times the amount of the current requested monthly charge. So, with the current markets average request of $1495 - $1795 a month - A consumer within their jobs,

must accumulate approx. $4,485 - $5385 a month in total wages in order to even consider moving into any property under the current average market values.

I will say that you are absolutely correct in saying that those values are set to increase in just a short few months, rendering most consumers stuck living back to the recession times. Oregon politicians and the fair housing market need to get together and squash the non-sense. You would make more in returns by changing the values the market needs. Lowering housing costs, offering business a tax credit for the shelling out of personal capitol when needing to re-condition a property with visible residual damage.

And this is coming from a stay @ home dad..Who's also affected by the markets unfair sales values...

Appraiser are appraisers. It is possible you could get the exact same person from either lender.

You shouldn't see much of a difference due to lending program. You may however see variation from appraiser to appraiser, but you can't pick one so you get what you get. ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
Depends on the contract you signed and what it says. Clearly your broker wasn't honoring his fiduciary responsibility to you his client. (I'm assuming you used a buyer broker and did not allow the listing agent to "represent" you as well) You may consider filing a formal complain with the real estate commission in your state. If you're not clear on the terms of your contract you should speak with an attorney.It may be you can get your earnest money returned it may be that you'll lose it, but it's better to get out now than to move forward buying something you don't feel good about. ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
Generally speaking yes, but with two caveats: if you are investing you need to be able to buy with cash, investment property mortgages carry about a 1% premium in terms of interest rates; currently they are about 5% and if you'r paying 5% interest you're significantly chewing up profit. Secondly be prepared to look long and hard, as acquisition costs in many instances make no sense for investment purposes. There's an old saying which for investors is always true, "You make money in real estate when you buy" ... more

I love the concept of your heat map info. While I was looking at the Beaverton OR 97006 locality I was surprised to see disparity between actual recent sale values Vs what your heat…

Mathew Purcell answered:
I have some some familiarity with the area and the actual town homes themselves. I can tell you that they are very pleasant. Well designed, nice craftsmanship, and fairly updated. There are many townhomes in the area, be sure you check out a few. Also, be sure to inquire about HOA fees they seem to vary greatly and can get a little pricey. Townhomes in the Beaverton, Hilsboro area are very reasonable and easy to get into. If you need an updated list of what is available feel free to reach out.

Best of luck

Steve Taylor answered:
You cannot.
Sellers (including lenders) are not interested in your (buyer's) "packet" of estimates and stuff wrong with or needing to be done to a home, they are only interested in the dollar amount. If they reject or refuse to acknowledge your low offer, simply wait awhile and (assuming someone else has not made a better, acceptable offer) offer it again after some time on the market has passed or when you see a price reduction occur. ... more

You should keep up any commitments you can. If you feel the HOA's are not something you can do because of the economy and job thats one thing - but the HOAs will probably be handled within the foreclosure either way. ... more

It will depend on how they foreclose. There are judicial and non-judicial processes. If you have a judicial foreclosure - they have the ability to do a deficiency judgement.
