There are two basic options

1) Leave it the heck alone. It's really only a hazard if it's disturbed and becomes airborne. It's repeated inhalation that causes major issues - not that I would advocate a person recreationally inhaling the fibers either! If you don't mess with it, it's not going to be a problem.

2) Call a licensed remediation company and pay a boatload of money for them to take it out since there are some serious EPA regulations on this sort of thing.

Hi Wesley,

Pre-Approvals, or Pre-Qualifications are only as good as the people issuing them. There are slight legal differences according to Federal Reserve guidelines, but neither is binding to the lender. So, it's more important that the letter states that your financial documents have been actually reviewed and that you are dealing with an experienced lender and lender's representative. A good lender will have reviewed everything and delved into other areas of your finances before issuing any type of letter. If you have someone look at your W-2 and credit and then say you're good to go, they are doing you, or anyone else involved a disservice.

I am available to help you at your convenience if you wish.

I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.

Beware of anything not listed by a local real estate company. Do not send .money in order to get keys, and if it sounds too good to be true, it will not be legitimate. The only thing you can do is protect yourself. Even the law enforcement agencies can't keep up with people who scam. ... more

Brian Nguyen answered:
Have you spoken with a lender yet? The first step to the home buying process is to speak with a lender to look at your finances to see if you can be pre-approved for a loan. They will look at your income, expenses, assets, liabilities, debt, credit score, available down payment (if any), etc. Then lenders like myself would inform you about different loan products that would fit your situation. Either way, you should speak with a lender and consider getting pre-approved. This will allow you to understand the price range you can afford. Also, if you are serious about buying a home, offers from individuals with pre-approvals are taken much more seriously. Well I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

Whether you had Inspections done, or not, you had the opportunity to thoroughly inspect the house. I'm sure you were not given a time limit, or obstructed in any way.
Then, you had a FINAL WALK THRU, and you could look again.

Did the Seller deliberately cover it up, or conceal it in any way?
Did the Seller have knowledge of it, and fail to disclose it? Could you prove it?
Are you talking about a $200 cure, and it is not worth a law suit?

Nothing is 100%, including Inspections.

JP Fluellen answered:
VA Loans are expensive Loans. You will typically finance more then the value of the house because they roll in all the fees into the mortgage hence the 100% financing. Not sure what you mean by 20% interest? If you mean 20% down your better off doing a conventional loan. If you have money to put down up to 3.5% your better off doing an FHA. But VA is a Solid Choice for no Money down. But you still have an origination fee of 2.5%. Choice is yours. I'm you have found a house by now? Call with questions. --307-772-1184 ... more

Kathryn Jackson answered:
Hi JP - You may have an answer to your question already, but just in case, here are some thoughts:

- YOUR LIST: What's on Your list of needs (must have, ie: 3 bedrooms, pet friendly) vs wants (would be nice to have, ie: hot tub)? Don't forget to include such things as closet/storage space, if such things are important to you.

- LOCATION: Where would you like to be in relation to work, play and amenities?

- CONDITION: Do you want a fixer-uper (less initial $ output, though renovations will cost $ over time) or move-in ready (perhaps higher initial $ output, though less $ on renovations, etc)?

- INVESTMENT: will the home be a long-term investment (stay and raise a family) or are you looking for a shorter-term investment (flip-type property)? In either case, you'll want to consider home condition.

- ADDITIONAL COSTS/RESTRICTIONS: be sure to also consider other associated costs such as property taxes, and home owners association fees (HOAs), in addition to understanding any/all covenants, etc.

Remember that things like floor covering, interior wall coloring, and appliances can easily be modified to your own taste, and to especially HAVE FUN LOOKING!!

Good Luck!

2007 was close to the top of the appreciation curve before the recession.
Good News! Our market in Cheyenne is coming back very strong. We are seeing 30-40% increase in sales over 2011.
Enlist the help of an agent you can trust. Get a Market Analysis, go and view some similar homes that are for sale. These steps will give you the information you need to get your home sold for the best price.

Good luck,
