Scott Godzyk answered:
There are some variables. Are the inspectors licensed? Are they licensed electricians? In a general inspection things can get mixed. If the buyer is insisting on repairs, the key decision is having a licensed electrician look at the issue. ... more

Changing out the granite backsplash may or may not help the look of the house for the next buyer - it depends on what it looks like. Plus, when are you planning on selling? If you are selling soon, than consider how much you're willing to spend to change out the backsplash. The overlook of a house may not increase a home's value, but it can increase the desirability factor and help it sell faster.

Tammy,
A good loan officer can help you improve credit standing so that you can qualify for a home loan in the future. If you don't have a loan officer you're comfortable with I can provide you with a list I give to my clients.

I would have no problem calling the inspector and asking him to come back out. It's possible he "flipped a simple switch" that's causing your furnace to malfunction.

Well it looks like Steve below is on the right track. Huge amounts of redevelopment going on in this area. Very community-oriented. A lot of redevelopment involves not knocking down homes, but taking existing old homes and fully renovating top to bottom. Big changes in the past few years. ... more

If you have credit issues the last thing you want are inquiries right now. There's a program out there... iqualifier.com it's $24 a month BUT..... they give you a copy of your credit report(s). They also immediately tell you what you can do to raise your scores. There's no long term commitment. So, you get a soft pull rather than a hard pull one time (or stay with the program and they'll keep you updated on your scores) anyway, you do it one time, get the info you're looking for (how to get your score up) and you can cancel. A hard pull will affect your score by a few points and lenders, we are considered hard pulls. Soft pulls don't affect credit. From there you contact a lender when you're where you need to be. Like Melissa said, you can get a loan with down to 530 (that's as low as I can go) but there are overlays and it's sometimes hard to meet the requirements. Costs more too, higher rate and higher cost for rate and larger down payment is required. The higher your score the better the terms. Besides any accounts you begin working on you want to make sure they definitely will benefit your score, not the opposite. If you have add'l questions I'd be happy to help.

Craig answered:
I have lived in Garfield Heights for over five years and feel completely safe, although I can only speak to the Crofton Overlook neighborhood. It is a very quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. Garfield Heights is a very convenient place to live. I can get downtown or to most Cleveland suburbs within 20 minutes thanks to its central location and there are several parks within 5 minutes, including CVNP. The new shopping centers add to the convenience factor as well. There are a lot of great real estate values in Garfield Heights right now so I would look at some of the neighborhoods before ruling it out all together. ... more

Are the photos showing up on Zillow or is it both websites don't have pictures? On Zillow, you can go to your listing and add /edit photos.
