When you say your considering buying a side x side sgl family home, what do you mean? Do you mean a trailer or a slab home? It makes a difference. And if your buying a home you'll need a realtor, if you already have 1 they should be able to answer your questions, if not, you need to get one. When buying a home you can't do it on your own. Let me know the answers to the questions above so i can see if i can answer your questions and help you. :)

Hi, Craig!
I think I agree with Linda. I don't know why Joe would advise you to have an agent and then NOT sign a contract that would help solidify the agent's commitment to work on your behalf. That's what the contracts are for! Joe, please enlighten us as to why you think the contracts are a bad idea. Without one, you do not represent that person as your client, they are no more than a customer. For example, Craig, if you go in to buy a boat or a car you are a CUSTOMER. You know going in that the sales person represents the dealership and is there to get the best price and terms they can for their BOSS, the dealership. If you sign a contract with an agent, that changes you from a CUSTOMER to a CLIENT. That means YOU become the boss and the agent is bound to negotiate the best price and terms for you!

As for the short term purchase.........if you want to make a profit, I would not advise it at this point in the market. Real estate industry prognosticators are pinning their hopes on 2014 as the turning the corner year. Is that what you have in mind?

Pickled - if they claim to be builder/developers there would be a paper trail of their properties/developments. Ask for references and some sort of proof they are who they say they are and then check with the MN dept of labor andi insdurty (link to their web site below) to see if they were actually licensed. ... more
