Rezoning has taken place everywhere, your lender should be able to help you determine what happened there or the Title company for answers.

The crime rate in the 17307 and 17303 zip codes is virtually non-existent. It is a very safe and quiet rural area, surrounded by fruit groves and mountains.

Hi Renee, The transaction you are preparing for would have a lot of possible snags both on the lending side and purchasing decisions to be made. Shopping the loan will serve you best when determining your interest rate and if there will be any points added to the loan. Your credit score plays a large role here. Personal visits to lenders are better than a phone call. I have a list of documents you should bring with you on the first visit to the lender that I'm happy to send over to you upon request. It's much easier to have your needed info organized from day one than to go back and forth gathering items that you must have to qualify. Are you working with a Realtor currently? Specifically a Buyer Agent? It is in your best interest to work with an experienced agent. It will save you time and reduce the surprises that can crop up along the way. Best regards, Cindy ... more

John Lagerquist answered:
Had the prospects made a offer with a buy sell agreement ? Asking for a substantial earnest money deposit would at least let you know if they had some money. The other would be to ask for a bank approval letter. Although, many of those don't carry much water either. It's very frustrating. ... more

Hi pdkumli,

The VA hospital is located on Fort Harrison, which is approximately 3 miles west of Helena. Here is a link to VA Montana Healthcare System for some further information. You may want to contact the Patient Advocate to receive more specific information.

Also, the Veterans Benefits Administration Regional Office is located on Fort Harrison as well, so if you have any questions regarding his VA service-connected benefits, there is a local office that is available.

I hope this information helps and if you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you!

Not sure what community? Please give me a location. Some places in Helena have HOA fees but by in large most don't. If they do, they are generally very low. Where I live it is $160 a year.

Negotiate within reason- Most assume that the Banks will come down drastically on a foreclosure but they have had many BPO's and some have done appraisals to determine fair market value and so most Banks are pricing these homes well. Many people think that they will drop the price drastically but that is not likely. Most likely thet will reduce the price incrementally every month that the home is on the market and remains unsold.If you have reasonable expectations you can usually make a deal! ... more
