Well according to my information, a healthy credit score is around 620 to 650 and certainly there are lenders who help customers by refinancing their unsecured debt and help them buy a new home through a fresh loan which is cheap and affordable when compared to their previous mortgage. ... more

While I cannot confirm the accuracy or honesty attached to the advertised low prices, I can tell you that Premier Development Inc. is an absolute joke. If you are looking to purchase a property, I would highly recommend staying away. How they have remained in business with their unethical business practices is beyond astonishing. I am aware that this answer is too late to be of any service to you, but hopefully it will enlighten any other potential buyer. ... more

amount. "Normal usage", we do not go crazy with water. 1 shower, 1-2 outfits a day, dishwasher every other day and wash the car every 3-4 months. Toilet flushing depends of course.

Hi Linda,

I enjoy working with people from different countries. I have traveled extensively and have a PhD in international business. Unfortunately I am not fluent in any other languages. Would love to help you if you still need it.

It really could vary quite a bit. Depending on what is being renovated, what materials you are using, and how much work needs to be done to make the job happen. You should talk to a few companies about getting help with this. That way you can get a chance to meet them and see if you'd like working with them. You can also get quotes to see how much money you could be looking at.

Phillip Gibson answered:
Gosh, depends on so many variables but, I will give you an fair answer. Expect anywhere from 140 to 175 per sq ft for a basic single family. Increasing the size of your home footprint will increase your costs. Consider building up rather than spreading out to help keep your cost per square foot down. Hope this helps. Again, so many things influence this answer. ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Never use the assessed value, which I assume you are referring to when you say tax value, for the purpose of property taxes, as a measure of market value. The assessments are only done every so many years and then a multiplier is used to come close to market value, they are wildly inaccurate, however, which is the reason we reevaluate every so many years. Find a local licensed agent and ask them to do a market analysis for you instead. ... more

No you won't find FSBO's on Trulia, but you can on Zillow. Since many For Sale By Owners will accommodate compensation to a Realtor, considering using one. If neither you nor the Seller understands the contract and requirement for disclosures having representation will save you a lot of headaches down the line.

Best of Luck!!

Robbie McLucas answered:

You are very smart to plan ahead for the purchase of a home. A good loan officer will help you put a plan in place to help you reach your goal of purchasing a home. In many cases, they can help you rebuild you credit with suggestions to make the process happen more quickly.

I would be happy to pass along the names of several local lenders who will consult with you to help you more quickly reach your goal of owning a home.

Best regards,
