Seriously, you're asking strangers how your company handles a specific situation?

This isn't a standard policy all over the country - each real estate company sets their own procedures.

Ask your Broker!!!!!!

Read your independent contractor's agreement!

Hi..Be very careful as I have encountered many phone calls from people seeing advertised rental properties on Craigslist, Trulia, Zillow etc. The scam seems to involve a house that is currently for sale or recently was for sale and they are copying the photos and the listing as well as obtaining public record information for the owners etc. They advertise it for rent at a very low price to attract a lot of attention. They will eventually ask you for a deposit to send you the keys as they are out of state doing prophet work somewhere. DO NOT EVER SEND THEM ANY MONEY!
I recommend you get a local realtor who does rentals to help you as they will know if listed on the up and up or not. I believe on Trulia there is a flag button to flag it.
Good luck..

Burlington is a town which draws many, many people. They love the location. It's convenient to the highways and not far from Boston. Their school system is one of the top reasons that make the town so popular!

AND Burlington is booming with new restaurants, two shopping malls and a hot, hot housing market.

Charlotte,

Yes, there are certain criteria, such as the hardship encountered which led to filing the petition, but there are some programs to aid the buyer. Do you have a lender?

Regards,
Shawn

You could map it in a search engine.

I would use a local rental professional to save time and money and also to make sure you don't miss a great rental.

Burlington, Woburn and Wilmington would be a great area to focus on because of easy access to all major highways as well as commuter rail that is available in Woburn and Wilmington. These towns are definitely a good commuter location to Boston and Nashua. ... more

Hello Carbau,

the mapping, just like gps, is sometimes a bit off. In this case it could be because your property has a few hundred feet setback from Bedford st. Also the link that you refer to here is for sold properties and not currently active for sale as I believe this property is. ... more

Hi Rose,


Aren't they all?
The inventory at some price points is lower that others.

Of course choosing a local real estate pro can help you save a lot of time.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro when you are ready.)

Why not search for a professional agent who works in that town and refer them the business?
It might serve your client better.

Currently as of today, I have an outlet for you actually.

You'll need three months of reserves after all your funds are sourced to close as well as three tradelines that are twelve months old or longer. There are some other basic criteria but those two above are the main sticking points usually.

This will be via an FHA loan, your down payment will be 3.5%. You can contact me at 847.404.7006.

Disclaimer: In the weeks/months/years to follow, this information may not be accurate, please ask for confirmation at that time (my profile --> email or call).

Home buyer:

Double check with your attorney, but I am fairly certain you can convey a home with a failed title V. The Title V came into effect to protect the banks in 1978. Now you may need to do the septic inorder to refi the property. It is really important that you do your due dilligence before you close. Cash is a wonderful tool in this market, but you need to be really smart how you spend it. All the best. ... more
