Let's make this perfectly clear. Any poster - and I mean any poster from any state - regardless of how they identify themselves - regardless of how intellectual they sound - regardless of age - if this poster in any way whatsoever defends D.R. Horton - either wholly, middle of the road or mildly is in my view morally deficient. To defend is to accept or agree with what has already been determined nationally as a company with a substandard product. That is it plain and simple. Stop the sugar coating - stop the "you get what you pay for", stop the "you should have done your homework.". Stop the defense - you know what your motives are. ... more

Property taxes are different for every property. I suggest going to the city of Fairhope website. Go to the probate tab and search for the property there to find the property tax amount. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. ... more

This is the sort of thing that you can write into a contract as something the seller must agree to do before closing or to give you a credit at closing based on a written quote so you can take care of it after closing. However, depending on the type of loan and how picky the lender wants to be, I always recommend making sure it is done ahead of closing so the lender and you both know it's done.

Would you like to put an offer in on this property? If you're not already working with a Realtor and need assistance with this or any other real estate issues, I'd be honored to help. Just give me a call or send an e-mail from my profile.

Mary McNair answered:
Depending on the price of the property, we usually ask 4% when doing a one-time-showing agreement to bring a buyer to a FSBO. However, this is not to say that this is a "typical" fee.

Would you give me a call and give me the address for your home so I can come see it? I have done several deals this way if I've had a good reason to believe a property would be a good match for serious buyers. I then only ask for the OTS contract when a date is being set for the showing and names are put on the agreement.

I would suggest you try the regular rental sites: (Rentals Section) (Rentals Section) (Rentals Section)

Between all of those, you will get a very clear picture if you can find what you are looking for. Good luck!

We've had problems like this with some of our listings being hijacked, pictures and all, and advertised for rent for way lower than would be realistic. Sometimes it's properties that are for rent, but we've even had for-sale listings hijacked as part of a rental scam.

My advice to anyone looking for a rental is two-fold:

1. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Research the address in a browser to see if it comes up elsewhere and/or drive by the property to see if there's a sign out front that matches the contact information in the ad. If it doesn't match, please call the real number to inform them of the scam so an alert like this one can be sent out and sites carrying the ad can be notified of the scam in order to get it removed, hopefully before someone falls for the scam and mails a check.

2. Only put the money in the hand of the landlord or property manager in person after seeing the property in person. If you're instructed to send a check in exchange for the key being mailed to you, this is a scam.

Basically, if your antennas go up, don't do it.
