Since the title to a mobile home is similar to that of a car, it would "seem" the answer to your question is yes, a name can be added. But...(an there always is one) is there a lien holder? I don't know if a lien holder changes here are a couple of phone numbers for you to call:

Motor Vehicle Inquires: 602-255-0072
Non-Motor Vehicle Inquiries: 602-712-7355

Hopefully you're already done since it's been several months.

For information about this program and other Down Payment Assistance programs, you need to speak with a lender. There are quite a few and all are slightly different with regard to qualifications - both borrower and property.

If you'd like a referral to an excellent lender, contact me. You can also ask for referrals from family, friends and co-workers, or contact your bank or credit union to get started.

Best of luck!

I checked the FAQ and it says I should be able to verify that I am the owner of my home and then edit the listing. That option is not available. What am I doing wrong?

Sounds complicated and you should probably hire an attorney. Realtors are not attorneys and we cannot practice law.

If you are an agent it is pretty simple. Go to your profile, and find your listing, or the listing of the home you brought the buyer to. From there it is pretty simple to claim the listing. ... more

There are a lot of moving parts that can affect the answer to this. Do you have a Realtor or real estate attorney that you can contact with the specific details?

Hi Charles,
You must make the request to your listing agent. The photos are uploaded through the Multiple listing service when your agent places your home in active status.

Your agent also has the ability to add or edit directly from his/her Trulia account.

Have you checked to see if the same photos appear in the other online real estate sites?

Usually landlords charge pet fees for dogs to cover damages to the exterior - lawns, pats, etc. There is usually larger deposit that covers damages to the interior(if any) - damaged carpet, fleas infestations, etc.
If you are question is if they have the right to do it - yes.

Please contact a local lender in Az. I can provide you with a few good contacts, and they can guide you and advise you. Let me know if you would like those contacts.

Jeffrey Masich answered:
A BPO is a "Brokers Price Opinion" on the current value of the home. The value is estimated by the broker based on the location, condition, features and size of home in relation to the recently sold values of homes in the area.

The lender will order an appraisal or a BPO which are different. Yes, a fee to the independent party that provides the services is to be expected.

Your lender will look for a certain equity value before considering dropping the PMI insurance. Each lender has different requirements based on your credit situation and the collateral value of the home.

I have lived in 7 different states before moving to AZ 20+ years ago. I remember in some states we had water restrictions for example not to wash cars on our property etc. It is surprising that living in a desert, we don't have any water usage restriction except for being conscious of not wasting water, and planting native desert style vegetation that use low water and are on drip system mostly in more newer areas of Scottsdale. ... more
