As long as you do not have any mortgage interest deductions on your previous three years Federal Tax Returns (1040s), you will still be considered a First Time Homebuyer.
As evidence you were just a cosigner, you friend will need to provide you with 12 months cancelled checks (paid by him) to the loan servicer. ... more

Claudia Muller answered:
Property taxes will be the same regardless of primary residence or investment as they are based upon purchase price.
Buyers who state they are going to occupy the property with the real intent to rent out the property are committing loan fraud.
The difference in rate is not enough to justify the possibility of loan fraud implications.

Why are you interested in lease to buy? If your credit isn't good then I would suggest that you work to improve it and purchase a home later. If you must have a lease to buy then I would suggest that you have your attorney review all documents prior to signing it. ... more

Find out why they are cancelling and see whether there's something that your both can come to agreement with.

Ws Homeowner answered:
Sounds like you actually moved plumbing to accommodate moving the toilet. While maybe not structural, it seems material. If it was a licensed plumber that did the work, but did it under the table, you likely are OK, not perfect, but OK. Not like you added a master bedroom suite. If you want to be more sure, you could have another licensed professional verify the work was sound, or to be 100% certain, have it inspected after the fact and pay any permit fees/penalties. But that has issues as well. Maybe what you did was not 'permitable', and the you gotta put it back. There are risks either way you go. ... more

Hi Charo,

Since you are also a realtor in Fremont, I am sure you know the answer to this question.
Not sure why you are posting this question on Trulia.

Hi, Looks like this Trulia Q&A has died. I would suggest you join the Nextdoor group in Warmsprings and ask that question. You may have to sign up, but this is a robust site. ... more

Hi Ronald,

It sounds like this can turn ugly pretty quick. I would suggest that you talk to an attorney.

Joe answered:
Hey, Bob...I would refer you to your local "Builder's Association". Most of the cats there are "vetted" by marketplace...meaning, people talk. So, builders who have a decent reputation tend to be part of their local association. Not a hard and fast rule, but a starting place. Once you speak to the BA, check Angie's List, the "real reviews" and then ask your prospects for the contact information of their last 3 clients. IF you get tons of push-back then, run, Forrest, run. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
No one can tell you whether it's the right time to buy or not. Everyone is different and the housing market, just the like to stock market, fluctuates. You can work with a local realtor and ask for past performance in a specific area. Still that doesn't guarantee the future. ... more

I would suggest that you consult with a couple general contractors and go from there. Do you need a loan?

To see who is the current owner of the property, you may check it on the county record where the property is part of.
