Ryan built out home in Patriot's Landing. This is our 5th new home and 3rd we built from ground up. WORST HOME builder EVER. I would offer to buy their nails since few were used on woodwork. I am having to take off caulk from the top of all woodwork and doors and redo. If walls were straight this would not need done because woodwork would have fit properly to wall. Carpets were bought at Costen and not stretched. I have had to have people come twice so far to take the wrinkles out of the carpets because the were not stretched when put in and of course had to pay for that. Cracks have developed in many, many corners and near ceilings. Thank god my dad was a carpenter and I know how to fix many of all the horrible workmanship downfalls of this house. We were told that the general contractor of this home would call or email us each week. Never did. Also suspicious that we could not drop by to just check on the house but needed an appointment to do so. We were out of state so couldn't if we wanted to. Also wanted zoned heating and cooling for upstairs and down which didn't happen. So now twice a year we have to go up to the attic or hire someone to open and close the correct vents for the upcoming season. Also asked for handicapped toilets but got mismatched tanks and bowls instead. When sewer pipe from house backfilled it was broke so plumbing was not working properly. We didn't find this out until we hired a plumber. Never reimbursed for this either. ... more

My father is a contractor and we have learned a variety of things living with him over the years. The biggest concerns with lead based paints are to small children. Fun fact: Roman's used lead to sweeten their wine! It's quite tasty. Unfortunately, consumption of lead leads to neurological deficiencies. So babies/young children who think it's a delicious treat don't know the damage they're causing to their brains. Mainly as long as no one who could consider paint chips an afternoon snack is moving in, you should be okay but to be safe, have a professional repaint. ... more

The answer is ‘it depends.’ And, yes, I realize that is probably not the answer you are looking for. The bottom line is that this question is best left to your attorney, but here are some things to consider. If the seller is actively working to cure the snag that is preventing the transaction from closing, then no, you probably cannot just walk away. If the seller has simply refused to comply with the contract, then you generally will have the ability to walk away or sue them for specific performance (i.e. — close according to the contract.) But if there are legitimate issues that will take time to resolve, (title issues come to mind) then I think you have to ask yourself if you are willing to wait. Hard issue for sure — speak with your attorney for your options. ... more

Trulia violated my trust answered:
I posted on Trulia earlier today and choose not to have my number shared.

And why am I getting calls from people who found me on HotPads which I'd never heard of before much less made use of.

This is a serious ethical violation. I cannot trust Trulia now, nor the parent Company Zillow and I will be taking down my post and closing my accounts permanently in response to this. Not only that but I'm returning every call I got to tell them they will not be considered because of this violation and encouraging them to contact Trulia about it.

Hi Superiorgoldendove,

It depends on the loan program & the lender.

General rule of thumb on this is you can exclude the debt IF you have proof that the other party has paid it for at least the last 12 months & the other party is also on the note.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Typical closing times can vary, but it is hard to get a closing done inside of 30 days, unless it is a cash sale. When there is a loan involved, 30 days is a minimum — but even that can be challenging as the spring market heats up and the volume in the system increases sharply. There are many other factors to consider, including the type of loan, buyer employment history and down payment, appraisal requirements, and repairs. Title issues or association documents can also slow down the process. If you are in need of a quick closing, make sure to use a Realtor, lender, and attorney that are all familiar with working with one another. ... more
