Frank S. answered:
Hello Tim, are you intending on selling your current home to buy or renting it out and buying? The prices are on a continuous rise so the longer you wait the more you will pay or sell for more but if you are selling and buying you should look at the number to make an informed decision. A netsheet worksheet can be provided from your agent and a fee worksheet can be provided from your lender.

You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score and 3.5% down FHA from a minimum 580 fico score. If you are selling and buying locally you may be able to close them concurrently and apply your equity over to the new purchase.

I posted my rental listing through Zillow. When I view it on Trulia it shows the phrase "multi-family" but I can not figure out how this was activated. It is NOT a multifamily…

*** more details***
I am the home stager. I have a contract with the Seller that it is required i receive a 10 days notice to remove my staging inventory. I was notified that the home was under contract on March 27 (two days ago), and notified this morning that the closing was bumped up surprisingly fast (not sure how since typical is 30-45 days escrow, though this must've been a crazy cash offer of the sort!) However, the buyer is taking possession of the home this Friday, March 3rd after it funds and records. MY contract with the seller states 10 days to allow me to remove furniture due to my booked schedule and my movers booked schedule. The new homeowners are now saying that if my furniture is not removed on Friday, they will charge me a daily rate of an absurd amount for the time my furniture is still in the home. At this time the earliest I could remove furniture would be next Tuesday, March 7th. Still within my 10 days notice (March 9th) if I count February 27th being my starting notice. I have a contract with the seller. Isn't it the sellers responsibility AND the realtors responsibility to know and acknowledge be signed contract? How would the closing and funding override my signed contract that was still standing? I'm a service provider and I understand that if these items/contracts are terminated (via my 10 day rider) that the home is not able to transfer to the new buyers, since there is technically a standing contract with the homeowner having possession. And that my possessions do not transfer as ownership to the new homeowners. Nor shall they alter or touch my inventory due to my contract with the homeowner, that shouldn't have been overriden anyways. Please advise. ... more

This is literally YEARS later, however after searching for my exact issue, this was the thread I came across. Not even sure if these comments still get to the appropriate parties that have commented, however it's a shot.

Greentekfirst answered:
A quick glance at current mortgage, lien and title records should only take a few minutes, if conducted online. The majority of these records nowadays are recorded and indexed online in title plants and county databases. These records and document images can be accessed online through a title research company I.E. US Title Records

Older documents are usually recorded on microfilm and microfiche and have to be obtained manually. This could be done by going down to the county recorder's office or hiring a local abstracter.

There really is no way to get close to a number per square foot with out seeing the home, understanding what needs to be done, etc. Building costs for homes can range anywhere from $60-$200+ per square foot depending on many, many things. If you were to build a very simple, slab on grade, with minimum code requirements, I'm confident you could come in at the lower end of the spectrum.

In addition to the standard closing costs, there is also a funding fee that needs to be paid upfront. All these costs can be rolled into the loan amount upto a certain amount, provided the appraised value of the property justifies it. http://usdalenders.org ... more

I have no idea what you're trying to say, but you need to talk to your agent about changes. Your agent or their firm controls the feed to third party sites.
