best thing to do is Google search tenant/landlord rights for your specific area or speak with an attorney.

JamieUSR answered:
Since both of you are still in college, a condo would be a nice choice. Condos are usually located in urban areas and within walking distance to shops, schools, restaurants and other establishments. In your case, you can find a condo near your school so you don't have to travel. For busy people, condos are attractive due to its convenience and low-maintenance lifestyle.

Buying a house takes a lot of considerations, time and effort. You will be responsible to the maintenance of both inside and outside of the property.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Read the agreement. it states VERY CLEARLY what the outcome of your purchase will be.
We can not 'see' what you signed. Many of these agreements bear the letter head of the franchise meaning they contain any kind of trick/trap the enterprise wants.

Of course, the best source of reliable information regarding what you signed is your Exclusive buyer agent.

This property is in Exeter River Coop - here's the park's website: and the monthly fee is $430. This is a resident owned park, pet friendly - and as a coop park, gives some additional financing opportunity.

If you have more questions about the unit, financing or would like to arrange a showing, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Lin & Paul Thibodeau answered:
Well it's already past the end of August, I am curious what you did do. Banks liens on real estate is a matter of public record. Your agent could have looked in the registry of deeds to see all liens on this property before allowing you to spend any $$ on this deal. It is best to get the 3rd party approval for your offer before spending a dime. ... more

Ian A. Wolf, Real Estate Pro in Morristown, NJ

Ian A. Wolf answered:
Simply, there is a lag between when a home becomes an REO and it is ultimately listed for sale. There really is no exact timeline for this period, because many factors are involved. Some bank may want to control the amount of inventory they have on the market at any given time, and as previously mentioned, sometimes evictions or other matters need to be resolved before the property becomes marlketable. If you want a home that is an REO and not currently listed. Your best bet is to check the foreclosure filing for who the bank is, contact that banks REO department, find out who administers the marketing of the REO(could be a servicer), then from that entity see which agents/brokers typically list the home. You can then contact them each and let them know to notify you when they get the assignment and that you are interested. Many REO agents will line up buyers and show the homes before they are officially for sale. If you know which attorney handles the REOs for that bank, that could also be good. Hope that helps.. ... more

Chuck Braxton answered:
In today's market with the Home Valuation Code of Conduct in place, we are all stumped. Even appraisers are getting second-guessed by the lender's underwriters (all the time).

That said, it takes a good understanding about where appraisals are coming in around your property to know what to expect. As others point out, that is tricky. If you are selling a home, I would strongly suggest a response to any offer with an appraisal contingency include a provision that the buyer deliver a copy of the appraisal report to you before they can walk, etc. While you might not like what is in the report, as a seller you need to know what is going on.

We are seeing as much as 40% of transactions fail to obtain appraisals that reach the value that buyer and seller have agreed upon. The shortfall ranges from 3-35% in these transactions. You or your agent can figure out how much more cash a buyer would need to come up with to fill the gap. Then, be prepared.

If you are buying, you have the advantage of using the appraisal to get a fair deal. Fact is, sellers need to understand that is the reality today. Even cash buyers will be using the appraisal to ensure that sellers are realistic.

Ken Lambert answered:
Hello Bubbles- I don't think she would have any legal standing to file a lien on the property. On what grounds could she file a lien? Is there anything in writing which shows that you owe HER money, for something that relates to the property? I don't think so....

I'm not an attorney either- just my 2 cents. If you want to speak with a local NH attorney, please let me know and I can recommend a few I work with regularly. Thanks, and good luck,

Two ideas:

I have always found it fascinating that auction winners are contented in winning said auction. In fact the winner has just agreed to buy that item at a price at which no else would. Is not that the definition of overpaying? Hmmmm. I know the real winner is the auction house.

Anyhow, the question is constructed in a way that leaves me with...errr...more questions than answers.

Looking to put the cash to work as an investment? If so you will need to buy physical silver and or gold bullion as it is about the only bull market available today. Buy on the dips of course.

Fyi, a hedge fund manager by the name of Paulson known for shorting the housing bubble to make $4 billion is buying billions in gold and silver. Article here:

Scott Godzyk answered:
M. your best bet would be to work with a buyer broker who can assist you in finding a home that is for lease that they would be willing to do the lease option. Sellers who choose the lease option as a way to see their property will want to make sure you are able to purchase at the end of the 2 year period, they often ask for a small deposit for the property for the sale side, as well they will want a prequailfication letter as to what you will need to be able to quailify in 2 years rather than just purchasing now. If you would like some assistance please contact me and i can point you in the right direction. There are some very nice homes in teh price range you are seeking but i would need to know what is the monthly payment you are looking to stay within as well as what is your time frame. i hope i can help. ... more
