If you qualify, yes; therefore visit with any licensed loan officer to determine qualification, be aware that a mortgage pre approval letter is necessary to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

I would advise to call your insutance agent as well. I don't think you can have it double insured.

If the buyer has paid in full and has the deed i would imagine that the seller is free and clear of the situation and has no further interest in the property. Now as I am a Realtor and not a lawyer the seller may want to check, but if I had completed the sale of property I had owned and the purchaser(now current owner) didn't pay taxes it wouldn't bother me at all. I may purchase the back taxes at the tax sale and make 12% (Alabama) interest when they do pay it off or get a tax deed and own it again if they dont pay for 3 years (Alabama).

Best of luck!

The person who cares most has to pay.

Regardless of your agreement - if there is no insurance in place, and something happens, it's a bad thing. If the property tax isn't paid and the county forecloses, it's a bad thing.

If you think the other guy should pay, and they haven't, you better pay, because if something bad happens, it will happen to you.

All the best,.

of course. In fact the seller should insist on it. Call a local insurance agent to get a quote.

Moving to the area within a month, never been there but am wondering if any of the listed properties may have an owner financing option. Rent to own or with option to buy even...?

Cole Haynes answered:

I agree with Anna. Make sure you educate yourself fully on how a rent to own or lease option works before you decide this is something you want to do.

Using this strategy can help you make owning a home possible or cost you a lot of money if you don't do your due diligence.

Good luck!
