I agree, bad idea. Newest fraud in Florida is people who are not the property owners renting our properties. At least with a complex/agent the info is typically verified that the owner is the owner. ... more

Jacquie Yekmalian answered:
Libby,

I suggest looking at what your contract says. There will be a section that states who pays for what at closing. You can also ask the title company and/or your lender if this is a normal fee charged to buyer in this circumstance.

Good Luck

answered:
You can do an FHA loan after 12 months if you were current on the mortgage at the time of the short sale and you DID NOT do a short sale of a principal residence simply to take advantage of declining market conditions and purchases at a reduced price a similar or superior property within a reasonable commuting distance

If you were behind on your mortgage at the time of the short sale , you can still do an FHA after 12 months if you can show that the short sale was due to financial hardship and now you have re established your self ( Income and credit) The bar here is very high and strict, you must prove . if you have any questions pls call me
Hope this help

Thanks

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
You cannot rent without an income. There are application fees, deposits, etc. You either save money to cover those cost before you move from MO (create a cushion). Or move with a family member while you get your first check and then go rent. All comes down to planning. If no family in area, then option is to rent at a long term "pay by the week hotel", until you are able to afford a regular rental. ... more

Kelvis Melo answered:
Pat,

My office hits the ball out of the park as Annette mentioned below. It is very important to look at the office statistics. I disagree with Antonio regarding the franchise fee. While being under a big name umbrella is not the most important thing in real estate, if the office hitting the ball out of the park happens to be a franchise, so be it. Don't get side tracked by brokers offering you 100% commission as 100% of 0 is still 0.

Alan Martin answered:
it would cost around $130k per year to put one person on the gate for a year 24 hrs per day. So the increase in HOA fee for 200 homes would be in the order of $55 per month. It would be up to the board to put it in th budget for next year if they deceded that the homeowner would benefit and be willing to pay. ... more
