You get what you pay for. Commissions are negotiable. If your looking for a discount go with discount brokerage. They arent going to work as hard for you to get your place sold and your likely going to leave money on the table because of this but at least it will be at a discount. ... more

I'm curious to know if it is possible to fine a home with that low of a credit score and income? I'm 24 and would love to have a home by the age of 30. Any advice to get me started…

I don't believe your neighbor has the right to enter your property. They can cut anything hanging over their own property. You should try and work it out with your neighbor or contact a lawyer. ... more

Bob Brandt answered:
Sometimes these kind of offerings fly below the radar of the public listing sites and even off the MLS, so you may want to make some calls to Realtors in the area you want to live and ask them if they have any or know any owners who may be willing to rent it now and then you buy it later. They will want to know your credit profile and how sure you will be able to buy it later. ... more

As a broker I would think you would know price per sq ft varies and there is no one set number. Maybe had you used the word average or asked a range, but you didn't.

Hello:

I am a local mortgage broker and would be happy to help you get pre-qualified for this home or any other one you may be interested in. Realtors prefer that you are pre-qualified before they take you out looking at homes so that they know that you have your financing in place. I can also help you with a Realtor once we get you preapproved. We work with many local realtors.

We work with over 30 lenders to help you get the best possible financing. We specialize in FHA, VA, 203k renovation loans and Reverse Mortgages for refinance and purchase too! Were other banks require a 640 and above score to help with financing, our lenders will go as low as a 580 score on an FHA mortgage. SMC carries an A+ Better Business Bureau Rating and we have worked in the community for over 15 years!

Please call or email me so we can set aside some time to get you prequalified; or visit my website to complete the application www.smartmortgageinc.com.

I look forward to working with you!

Best regards,

Patty Harrison

It is a simple process to look it up. Send me the address and I can look it up for you. Ignore the out of state advise as foreclosure laws are very different in all states.

Chances are the agent that finds you the home will not charge you anything. In most cases they will get paid by the landlord. However, if the landlord refuses to pay you may have to offer the agent some compensation. It is all negotiable. ... more

As long as you are in the property, you are required to pay rent. That's what your lease says and that's what a judge will look at. If the landlord told you to stop, ask him to put it in writing. Without a writing signed by the landlord, the landlord can say at a later date that you are in violation of your lease and start eviction.

When the new owner takes over, they are bound by the lease that you have. If you are month to month, the new landlord has to give you a 30 day notice that your lease will be terminated. If you got a 30 day notice today, you would have to be out by September 1st (assuming that your rent is due on the first of each month.

Ranj Mohip answered:
Yes. The landlord/old owner will have to turn over unused rent and the security deposit plus interest to the new owner. Unused rent would be this: July rent was paid and you are closing on July 15. Rent from July 1-15 belongs to the landlord/old owner and the remainder goes to the new owner. Your attorney should take care of this and your lender should know about it so there are no surprises at the closing.
