I am a Realtor and life long resident of Hampton Bays and I would consider it a necessity. However, one doesn't need central air, window units may be used. Central air will increase the value of the home when the time comes to sell. It is an investment which will cost 3-5 thousand dollars for the average 3 bedroom ranch. ... more

I hear this question a lot. I would suggest that you have a Realtor represent you so that he/she can search for investment properties for you, which can save you a lot of time. If you don't know the differences between foreclosures and short sales, the Realtor will be able to explain them for you. As Anna stated, make sure you have a pre-approval letter if applying for a mortgage. ... more

First time home buyers should start their process by speaking with a loan officer/lender. There are a number of programs out there with different requirements. Some programs that were available in the past have expired. A loan officer will be able to assist you and let you know what you qualify for, as well as if you need assistance improving your credit score. I will add that is very important not to make any large purchases, such as buying a car, when you start your home buying process.
Best of luck to you.

Hello Jerry.
If your home is listed with a Realtor, you need to contact your listing Agent and have them add your listing to Trulia.

In most cases, an inspection is done prior to signing the contracts. I would consult with your Attorney to discuss any questions or concerns.

Hello Anna,
I have to agree with Diana and Debra. When purchasing a home the buyer will pay for the engineer inspection. I am sorry to hear that no one explained this to you before the inspection occurred. Best of luck. ... more

When do you wish to rent? For how long? What are your needs within the home. I am not a realtor, I am the homeowner.

Diane Christner answered:
Sometimes home owners with older appliances, water heaters, AC/heat systems offer home warranty plans as an incentive to buyers.

These home warranty plans typically run about $350 to $500 for a year of coverage. The biggest issue I run into with these plans is failure on the part of the buyer to read the plan coverage and exclusions to know what will and won't be covered. The plans vary from company to company, some have more exclusions than others. All have very specific rules for what the home owner must do if an appliance or system breaks down.

I've read that most of the complaints about these warranties is disputes between the plan holders and the companies regarding what is and is not covered
and
the quality (or should I say lack of) of work done by the repair companies that do the contract work for these home warranty companies.

Knowing all of this, my thoughts are that being offered a home warranty is a plus, but I would not base a decision regarding the purchase of a home on a $350-$500 home warranty.
