Mary asked:
We heard the rates are hovering around 3.75% for Vets right now! Is this true? We will be in our first home for two years this August and wanted to know if it's worth it to refinance…

In Texas, the buyer loses the option to terminate the contract under the option contingency if they don't deliver the option fee within three days of the contract execution date. However, there could be other contingencies in the contract they could use to terminate. You really should consult with your agent or an attorney. ... more

Properties become abandoned and distressed for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the owner passes away and heirs are uncertain what to do with the property. Others are simply abandoned with little effort to sell the property, if the owner has no equity.

A REALTOR, like myself, can check a variety of sources and attempt to find owner information and explore the possibilities for rental or ownership of the house. Find an agent that has listed or sold several homes in the area close to the house. They can solicit the owner for you and see if they can arrange a mutually beneficial transaction for a sale or lease.

They can also check to see if the property has been through a foreclosure and is now owned by a bank or loan guarantee program like HUD, VA, Freddie Mac, etc. These home often are sold at an auction. If you have the means to have it done, or can do the work yourself, you may pick up a bargain, trading your work to rehab for a substantial equity in the home, once the remodeling work is done.

Hello Becky,

It's been awhile since I've heard from you and I was waiting for a call back in regards to your on going attempts of selling your existing estate. Have you decided on what route you were going to take. I already have an excellent marketing plan in mind for you that I'm confident will get your estate sold. Could you contact me once again when you get this. Thank you.

PS. Right now I feel as though you're losing out of a terrific market and I would like to help you take advantage of it in every which way while rates are still low and buyers are abundant. Thanks again.

It sounds as though you've a challenging road ahead of you considering you would violate many city ordnances. In many cases you will need a 5 bed and up which in that price range will be extremely hard to find.

I agree with Rick I would start looking at the notion of possibly purchasing. I believe we all lose a great deal of understanding by attempting to communicate online, if you have any further question feel free to call me directly. Thank you.

Nathan Beckey answered:
Good Evening,

First step would be evaluate what you want and what you can afford. If what you can afford is realistic then sell since it's a buyers market and roll the equity from you current home into a new home. Interest rates are super low...playing landlord is highly discouraged unless you have extra cash to repair after each renter and don't need the equity from your current home to buy what you want.

I would start with one of our listing plans as low as $99.

Call anytime to discuss or check us out on the web at www.exclusivepropertiestexas.com since we have more affordable listing options that any other real estate broker in the metroplex.

I can arrange to meet at the property when convenient if you are not currently working with another agent.

I look forward to speaking with you.

Look no further Darren. I Buy Houses, as-is, fast, cash, any condition, no costs to you and quick close. Yes you can market it now but you will have to go thru the probate process and get approval to sell first before you can close. I can also put you in touch with a Probate Attorney as well. Come visit us.

There are a few great resources around. I think it is best to contact your Community Resource Officer or CRO at the police department. Just call the main non-emergency number and ask to be connected to the CRO. They’re normally very aware of the good and bad areas of the area and can normally give you local statistics. You can also check out http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/ which provides stats based on the FBI uniform crime reports. You might also visit the FBI stats site at http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm#cius. Another place to checkout is http://www.Crimeweb.net . Hope this is of you to you. ... more
