How do you know that you neighbor is dangerous? I would suggest that you discuss this with your landlord and be honest.

Sometimes your local agent can get additional information from county records, and find comparables in the nearby area that may give you an idea of value, but in some cases an appraisal may better.

all the best,

The benefit is possibly getting the home at a better price. Buying short sales come with risks so please be advised.

Randy Stoker answered:
The bank (lender) controls the short sale transaction whereby the seller has very little control over the decision making. All short sales are "As Is" so you must accept the house in it's existing condition with no exceptions. Your Realtor can help you determine the value of subject property when completely repaired and then subtract the cost of repairs; which is the value of the property in it's present As Is condition. Your offer should reflect the As Is condition. Sometimes a cover letter explaining the reason for a low offer can convince the lender to accept a low bid offer. ... more

Yes there is similar reports of lots of fake rental listings. the problem is Trulia is letting anyone post ads. they need to extend their policy as in homes for sale, to only let licensed agents and brokers post rental listings, it would eliminate a lot of these scams. When you see one, click on the flag to report it. ... more

Brian Nguyen answered:
Down payments are very important for mortgage and it can be difficult to obtain a mortgage without one unless you are a veteran or seeking a rural/USDA approved property. If those circumstances apply to you, then I recommend you seek a VA or USDA loan. Otherwise, FHA loans are great loans to consider since they only require 3.5% down. There also may be some community grant programs depending on your area. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

Dear Hellagood, all of us are victims of scammers. You just need to screen out more carefully and ask some tough questions. Have them fill-out credit application, verify their information for accuracy, run credit check everyone 18 and over and once all that done then you might be lucky to find one or two great individual or family to lease your property. Or the best way will be to hire Real Estate agent like myself to actively market your property and screen out “scammers” and get you qualified tenants. You can reach me at 626-786-5290, I work at Century 21 Hollywood. Thank you, ... more
