Beware of the location in Cumming, GA. They have a fairly new Superintendent, Johnny Santander and he used to sell houses on his own under the Magnolia Homes brand. You can't trust him, he's not reliable and he doesn't live up to his word. Be careful if you buy from Ashton Woods and he's involved. ... more

The problem with Glenmoor is the HOA is one that wants to rule your life. If you do not mind someone constantly spying on you and your house, and are the type person that enjoys someone telling you what to do (cannot make decisions yourself), then this neighborhood might just be for you.

Me, I moved on to a more friendly neighborhood where house values will not be suppressed due to an HOA ruling with an iron fist threatening to fine me for trivial matters (almost laughable) that could of easily been resolved at any time.

My friends enjoyed hearing stories about the HOA and their antics, lol.....

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Even though you have about 13% for a down payment, the issue is whether you are financially qualified to buy at that price. You also need cash to pay closing costs. Another issue is what is the maximum dollar amount for conventional loans in your county? A $1 million dollar loan may be considered a "jumbo loan" which means the lender will use a conventional loan up to the county limits, then for the difference you can either get a secondary loan or may be charged higher interest rates, fees, etc.

You need to contact a local lender and have them pull your credit and review your finances. Don't assume you qualify for a $1 million dollar property.

Rent to own is just a horrible idea. More than likely, you're going to lose a lot of money. I suggest you wait until you can qualify for a traditional mortgage; then buy a home.

Hello,

Your home is priced right, looks great in both MLS systems and is already accessible to investors. But cash investors typically pay no more than the low 200s. Also, your neighborhood may have rent restrictions that limit investor activity and that is a good thing IMHO. I think a sale will soon come along.

Full disclosure. I am an agent with the brokerage that is handling the sale, but I don't know your agent.

Good luck

Hi svetatil,

It sounds like you've had better days.....

I would suggest speaking with your real estate agent or broker to start with. They will be more aware of the details related to your specific case.

There may be multiple factors at play here, and the resolution could be anything from someone saying oops... we made a mistake & writing a check to asking a court to decide how to resolve the issue.

There isn't a managing authority for these industries that oversees civil disagreements or determines responsibility in a case like this.

Give your agent a call, and they should be able to assist you in determining which direction follow.

Good Luck,
Kirsten Wellborn

Solomon Greene answered:
Sonja,

Most (not all) entries on a credit report should automatically fall off at seven years since the last direct contact with the creditor. Unfortunately, some consumers either try to work things out or get on a payment plan with a past creditor or landlord who has placed a negative entry in their credit history. While often noble, it also resets the seven year window to a new, more recent date of last contact. If you haven't made contact with the landlord over these past seven years and the entry is still on your credit report, please think about disputing it and see if it is removed for good. Then you may be able find a rental.

I realize that this is a 5 month old question, but for future reference, anyone can post a FSBO on zillow, which will automatically place the listing on Trulia as well (since Trulia is owned by Zillow). Use the following link.

http://www.zillow.com/for-sale-by-owner/

Do not listen to any realtor who may claim otherwise.

Regards.

Worst builder, expensive builder, worst construction, if you buy ryland/calatlantic in Reservers or Arbors lake you will end up paying a lot after closing. I promise you. Several new home buyers facing problems with this builders. Careless and rude. All water leaks, mold from day one onwards. Cheap drywall. ... more

Desiree Lapin answered:
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any home. Especially in the minds of buyers, so making updates in this room is typically a good investment. Consider taking the time and spending extra money in the kitchen where needed. For example replacing old, warn out counter tops with granite counters is an excellent upgrade to make. Having beautiful new granite counter tops in the kitchen will appeal to a wide range of buyers.
