Devin, Since you are moving here to complete a project, perhaps your company is paying you a housing allowance. We have had clients in the past who were in your same situation and they decided to purchase a property instead of rent. If you have a reasonable down payment you may be able to invest that into a property that you could either rent when the project is done or sell (hopefully for a profit) when you leave the area.

There are many communities within commuting distance of Lewiston where you may be able to find a property. Contact a Lewiston Realtor and see if this is a possibility. Good Luck

Your response raises a couple of things. Number one, you have an agreement with the agency and not the specific agent. You can call the Designated Broker and request another agent from the office. Secondly, if you are buying a short sale, has your offer been approved by the lien holder? I hope you're not doing inspections before that. Buying a short sale is not for the faint of heart. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
This is not an unusual occurance. Probably because of the constantly adjusting real estate market. The property needs to appraise for at least the contract price without appearing inflated.

The effect of this is that the customer is in jeopardy of not recieving an accurate account of the value of their home...but an evaluation that meets the need of the lender.

We strongly agree with the fact that there should be no connection between the appraiser and the actual contract price......but as you can see, this is not the case. To us it's like providing the ansewers to the test before the questions are asked.

Your concern is a valid one!

Hi Renia- If you have a few towns you're interested in, I could provide you any Foreclosed homes for sale (listing data), which may be good deals and something to look at that many people do not look at. About half the properties in my database are not listed with are realtors.
Other than that, Trulia is good and free. And most realtors will allow you to do some preliminary searches of homes within your county that are listed on the state's MLS.
Good luck,

Ken L.
