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.

Solomon Greene answered:

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:

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.

Do not listen to any realtor who may claim otherwise.

DO NOT Buy from them. The. Biggest mistake of our lives. We have build and sold many homes over the course of our life and this doesn't even come to a honest builder.,which by the way is their motto. every single upgrade that we purchased was installed incorrectly and it was a battle every step of the way to get it corrected. They did not delivery on time,they postponed our closing date, causing our movers to be rescheduled, costlng us more $.
And now we are In the middle of property line issues... They did not disclose to us that there is a roadway behind us , as it was covered up by their graders and now the city is making them restore it.
This is what we get for paying for a premium lot by the way. There are many more things I could list here, we are just so unhappy and don't want anyone else to have to go through this. Ash woods is a company that only cares about making a $ they come off as honest and friendly when buying , so don't get sucked in by that.

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. Have a look here -, to read up on additional kitchen design tips. ... more

MCM_STL answered:
The basement issue really depends on what's normal for where you are. In my city, basements are nearly always standard equipment and not having one takes a bite out of your property value because an overwhelming majority of buyers simply expect houses to have them. Slabs are often hard to sell even when they're priced lower than basement-having houses. I'd never buy a slab foundation house here unless I was sure I wanted to stay in in for decades.

To me 3,100 sq feet is TON of house. I'd never want more living space than that and I absolutely think there's something to be said for not having to look at your neighbors' houses every time you go outside.

Really, it's simply a question of what buyers expect in your community. Are basements the norm or not?

Hi Rahul! I am a local Realtor that lives and works in Alpharetta. The subdivision being too close to a industrial plant may be a issue. Of course it depends on how close the subdivision is to the plant. You may want to ask your Realtor to look up the comps in the neighborhood to see if there is a high turnover of properties and to see if there has been a difference in the resale value over time. I hope this helps.
