Not necessarily. Credit card debt is unsecured debt so I'm questioning how a credit card company can file a lien on a property which doesn't make sense. However, any property liens that you owe will prevent you from applying for a new mortgage loan. ... more

Buying a home where the sellers did little to no updating on their 25 yr old custom built home. All 4 full bathrooms need something.

Hi Jeff,
As a real estate professional, the answer to your question is no, at least none that I know of. My question to you is why would you want that anyway? Even if a local builder were willing to do that, he'd only pay you a portion of the true market value of your home. Think about it, he doesn't want to buy and hold your home. He wants to offload it asap, so he's going to have to buy it cheap from you and sell it at a competitive price to get it off his books quickly. Also, we are in a seller's market in Dayton, so you should have no problem selling your existing home quickly if you choose a realtor who prices the home appropriately and one that is a marketing machine, such as myself. Why let the builder cut you out of your own equity when the market will support you keeping it for yourself??

They do not on their own, only licensed agents can post home for sale posts on Trulia. You would need to have a "entry only" agent di it for you.

Sabrina, One way around the down payment is a Rural Development loan. With the seller paying closing costs, it is one of the few, if not the only "no money down" option. Location specific. ... more

Janet McCarthy answered:
"AS IS" simply means the seller will make no repairs. There are two reasons a seller may want to sell "As Is"
1. The know that the house needs repairs but they don't have any money to make any repairs and they want the buyer to know that fact up front so that there are no issues later when the physical inspection report is completed.
2. The seller does not occupy the home and is not able to make any repairs on the home.
The ramifications are -
If the seller failed to fully disclose known issues on the home the buyer might be able to sue.
A buyer should always have a licensed physical inspection on a house regardless if it is an "as is" sell or not. A seller should at the minimum provide a Home Warranty to the buyer in order to avoid possible litigation.

No chance I'd miss it. I've been the last two years and it's the only real estate "training" I do anymore. They're still full time agents, so the stuff they teach you is what they're doing right now in their own businesses. I got a link to sign up with a discount - not sure if it'll work for you, but you can try... ... more
