To build your own house you need
1. Building-knowledge
2. Know how to work with people/trades people.
(Negotiating , and getting them to do what they promised to do)

Unless you are going to use your own 2 hands to physically make your entire house, you will be screwed if you have the misfortune of hiring the wrong people.

Number 2. Is my weakness ., I wish a was more stern .

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

I would need more information to determine if I can help you with a mortgage.

We have programs that go down to a 580 credit score. Some require no down payment.

I am writing this testimonial to say thank you Dynamic Loan Offer. I want to share my experience with my friends and recommend you to them via: I got a taste of your services, and I must confess it was outstanding. This is now the 2nd loan you helped my company get. I am extremely happy with the services that your team has delivered for getting my company loan of $500k (Five Hundred Thousand Dollar Only) approved within no time... The customer service staff responded in a quick way and disbursed the loan on time. There were no problems of documentation here. Without your help I would not be able to grow my company. I look forward to many more loans as you help my business grow. I want to especially thank Mr. Eugene for educating me on this process as it has been an overall success. If you need a loan with good interest rate and good and genieu service contact Mr. Eugene via ... more

Does this 3/4 acre have a house on it or is it vacant land. Vacant land is an entirely different animal, so you'd need someone familiar with the potential issues.

I am an agent in Charlotte, NC who stages all my clients' listings before I put them on the market. I also hire professional photographers to take the best photos possible to make my listings stand out from competition. I am a firm believer that we only get one chance to make the first impression! Staging is so critical for maximizing my seller's return on investment even though it's time and money consuming to me. Are you still looking for an agent in your area? If so, please let me know. I will be happy to point you to the right direction. If you can email me some pictures of your house, I can give you some suggestions on staging. Contact me at: or 704.412.3059. ... more

Kary Krismer answered:
I'm not going to read all the responses, just respond to the OP's claim that "Clearly news is better than older." That is far from necessarily the case. In many ways older homes were built better. If you had to have an ideal home to me that would be one new enough to have a concrete foundation, built with pre-2000 construction methods, but with updated plumbing/electrical/insulation where necessary.

Beyond that though, there is a lot of benefit to buying in an established neighborhood. I was just at a listing the other day that was about 10-15 years old, and the neighborhood was incredibly run down. People buying there when it was new would have been much better served buying in an older community.

Why Choose Trulia

Trulia will undoubtedly be a volatile stock going forward, with a P/S ratio currently nearing 16. However, the company is guided by Spencer Rascoff, a young and innovative leader, who oversees one of the top company cultures in the country. Trulia's focus on building a service that attracts a wider consumer audience has proven to be an effective strategy, and the company has done a great job translating ever-expanding customer visits into consistent sales growth and cash flow production.

As Rascoff explained in the fourth quarter conference call:

55% of new sales bookings in the fourth quarter went to existing agents buying more impressions across mobile and Web, which is higher than recent trends and signifies strong underlying demand.

In other words, Trulia's strategy is working. This isn't to say that Zillow or other players cannot succeed as well, but Trulia hasn't been able to prove it can actually make money or generate cash with its strategy. Trulia has a proven strategy that is already leading to solid financial performance, which gives me confidence that the company can continue to outpace the market.

I don't know why this damn thing keeps saying I'm from New York; I'm from Seattle. Despite the butthurt guys below, I had a super good experience with Lumin Brokers. Rich Kim handled a short sale process that included a divorce, a bankruptcy, two terrible lienholders, vandalism on the property and a buyer who bailed at the last second, requiring a new buyer to be brought in after a year of negotiation with the swine at Ocwin mortgage.
Rich is a good guy, he's ethical, he knows the law and the system and he looked out for my interests and was transparent during a sale process that couldn't possibly have made much money for him.
I recommend him without reservation. If you want more information, email me at
