My phone number is 541.476.1614. I used to work for Exit Realty as a secretary, and I do not recall ever giving anyone my phone number. I do not want to receive phone calls any more.

You need to talk to your lender about locking a rate. I believe you cannot lock a rate until you're actually under contract on a property. You can't just lock a rate when they are low, and then go shopping for a house. And the longer your rate lock, the more expensive it is. ... more

It depends on the size of the home and what you're asking them to inspected. Use $400 as a rough estimate.

S Tiedemann answered:
Try the areas that are south of the Rogue River and towards the west of town. There are a lot of middle-class neighborhoods that lie within the preferred District 7 School District.

There are gang related crimes in Medford, but I haven't noticed much with Grants Pass. There are street people in the downtown area and methamphetamine can be a problem with some of them. In my opinion, that is the biggest problem for this area.

Hope this helps!

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Trulia and Zillow do not edit listings, you have to have the agent that added them edit or remove them.

The laws governing landlords are a state law refered to as the simply the landlord tennant act. The multifamily housing people (that make those politically correct forms) lobby on landlords behalf and publish a free newsletter aimed at landlords. I agree the law has gotten unreasonable but the real problem is tennant lawyers who twist the meaning of the law and judges who go along with it. It has gotten to me after 37 years of renting houses and I decided after getting screwed over just to sell and live off the money in the bank.
There are things that should be changed, the police not charging tennants who leave with your fixtures claimimg its a civil matter is where it should be started. Then getting things back into the original sprit of the law by making it that a landlord that dose not have an attorney should not have to pay the tennants attorney fees like some states, this would take the profit out of chister attorneys taking cases on comission.
Laws need to be made to allow books published for do it yourself people but the lawyers have banned so many great step by step books on everything claiming its giving leagle advice. Its our law and we should take it back and start by having law protecting our right to give all the legal advice we wanna.

But its not a perfect or fair world or justice system and as you grow older you find just how filled the justice system/laws/judges how filled they are with personal adgendas and how little it has to do with being fair or just. THEN you will prefere to go hide.

But good luck with your fight, if you have the time and drive start with what I gave you and lobby moltifamily people and your state political law makers because they still review the landlord-tennant act and who knows?????

Michael Derossett answered:
Unfortunately, there are so many ways for the banks to delay the approval process...and they use them all. I have witnessed the "backlog" excuse used for months, so I hope that's not the case with you. Sometimes your Congressman can light a fire under these asset managers, so I would consider that option. The banks have already been paid so they have no reason to get in a hurry. Make sure there aren't two banks involved because both must give approval before anything can happen.

The whole system makes no logical sense. Best of Luck!
