Typically, roofs need to be replaced or recovered after 20 years. Your roof having gone 26 years certainly means that it is primed to cause problems, and will need to be replaced soon. Since the sellers only agree to a minor repair of the roof, then you may be able to make a deal with them where you pay to replace the roof and they cover part of the closing costs. Hopefully, you are or were able to strike a deal with the sellers and get the house and roof you want. ... more

Here are some resources for you. Make sure you ask all your questions up front and understand what they will and won't do before you engage them. Explain your log cabin situation and ask them why working with them over somebody else is what you should do. If they cannot quantify the benefits to you in a way that satisfies you, keep making calls to find someone that you are comfortable with. Tom Hinz

Yes, there are a few ATV trails scattered throughout Southern Oregon, I believe there are also 4X4 and ATV trails/courses in Sams Valley Area, and Klamath Falls, Check with Southern Oregon JK-Jeep. They know all the trails.

Also, up Galls Creek/Foots Creek in Gold Hill "North of Medford about 13 miles" is an all ATV based course through the hills in BLM. Nice trails. I believe there is a website for it somewhere. It's considered an ATV/Recreational park...

You have likely cleared this matter and are happily living in your home by now. But the question is timeless and so I will chime in since it has risen to the top of the heap....

With inspection repairs, you have the right to ask, the seller the right to respond. The inspection contingency protects you - and the seller - if an agreement can't be reached.

In terms of requesting credits for agreed upon repairs, an estimate is the best way to go. As with most things, numbers that are based on facts from a reputable source have a much higher likelihood of success than those that are plucked from the sky.

The mortgage company you choose to work with (lender) will provide you much of the information when it pertains to insurance. If it is in a flood area, you will know, and will pay a premium for insurance. Also, when purchasing a property, you will order a survey so that you can see the property lines etc. I grew up in Medford, and loved it as well. Best of luck in your search! ... more

Hello Peko,
Thank you for your question.
Yes, when there are 2 posts at a different price and one it is too good to be true. Be careful. I saw that another Realtor already contacted the listing agent as that will be what I would do to check on it.
Thank you for letting the Trulia community.
If you need assistance contact me at your convenience.
Good luck in your search.
Best Regards,
Ines De La Cruz, ABR, CRS

Marc Paolella answered:
You really don't. Very few owners want to to this. And it's usually a rip off for the tenant after the property owner gets through protecting himself.

Just rent until you have the proper credit rating and down payment to own. Very few people or banks want to deal with someone with bad credit nowadays. You need to pay your bills and get your credit score restored so that it is an asset rather than a liability. ... more

Theresa Nason answered:
Hello: if the home has an abandoned oil tank from the past, the township should have a record of that because whoever originally chose to abandon that tank had to have their oil company come in and get a permit to do so. Find out which oil company and you can get a copy of the paperwork there. It is not unusual to find an abandoned tank. Many years ago, some tanks were simply abandoned and filled with sand and a new tank installed. As for testing soil and/or removal of that tank, depends on your negotiated deal with the seller and that is something your experienced agent should be advising you. ... more

I would strongly recommend against using Engineers for Home Inspection ( The inspection on a house I was purchasing was performed by this company. This company failed to reveal evident structural deficiencies which have been discovered at our residence. They have been extremely difficult and unprofessional to deal with before and after the issue. ... more

You cannot go wrong with a home in this area. This price range has been slow to move during the down market that we have been experiencing. We are anticipating that the Spring market will begin to change things.
Most importantly, the house has to be right for you. You will profit from working with a Buyer's Agent as you proceed. We can clarify your questions from an objective position and help you to purchase the house that meets all of your future needs.
As a long term broker in the area, I can be of great assistance as you consider the pros and cons of a home here. Call any time to discuss at 609-519-0076.
