Typically in a rent to own the owner of record pays the taxes...but ANYTHING is negotiable and up to discussion. My recommendation if you are renting to own, DO NOT agree to pay the taxes....I don't like that burden being put on the renter...and it is a red flag for me on a owner requiring that.

That score will get you a great rate on FHA, with only 3.5% down. Conventional rates are higher for those scores, but rates overall are some of the best we've seen in 40 years.
Your focus shouldn't be too much on the rate, rates are great. Find a reliable lender who can review your entire situation, advise and get you approved.

No. The Lorain City Police Dept. has done an excellent job with crime control on the east side of Lorain.

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Paul Drury answered:
The first question I would ask is, "Have you already 'lost' your home to foreclosure?" If not the time to act is right now! The banks are more open to accepting short sales on your home than ever before.

If you have already lost a home to foreclosure the short answer is Yes, you can. The long answer is it will depend upon the reasons you lost the home, your income history, your credit history, your current credit and debt ratios, and the amount of time since the loss occurred.

There is often times a minimum time frame of two years from the time the bank "disposed of the property". Not the date the sheriff's sale occurred, and not the date the bank took the property, but the date in which the bank resold it.

If you have any further questions more specific to your own personal situation and your finances, I would recommend you speak with a professional who can provide more specific tailored advise to your own situation.

Mack McCoy answered:
The thing is, cosmetics can be more expensive than structural work. Although, most houses that need structural work also need cosmetic work!

But if you've got a '60s kitchen, a '70s bath and an '80s bath, the place needs paint inside and out and the floors on the main floor need to be refinished and the carpet upstairs replaced . . . you can throw $50,000 at it in Seattle and still have work left to do.

All the best,
