So called private information is easily aquired about anyone like co-workers, your boss, that hottie you met via a friend! And then twist the search into what about property information... So use publicdata.com to see all people tied to an address. Then you can use the county CAD website to see the property information, like how much is the house your boss lives in or how long has he lived there? Is he being a honest citizen my paying the actual amount of property tax each year? Or are they letting the lazy govt appraisers allow the value of the home to drop so they can cheat on the amount of taxes they pay each year? I wonder how much trouble can be stirred up for the owner that cheated the govt out of the tax $ they should have been paying when their house sells for a significant amount more than what the CAD site shows? and to those who knew about these people that cheated the govt of taxes? guilty I say is anyone that justifies a lie is ok ever for any reason! Your lies will be what haunts you some day unless you are a sociopath! Good luck trusting an agent that is trained to withhold information and also feed buyers bogus lies. You agents that are totally honest, I would say you will be rewarded for your honest heart! I wish no ill-will to those that choose to sin, i just wish that you would change your ways , thus being the change that that you want to see! Leak Project is the way the unknown becomes known and the future will be better for all no matter how hard some try to resist the change for the better good of all people! Remember what it felt like to give to someone that really needed help and was ever so thankful without saying it out loud, yet you could see it in their eyes? You that have so much to share ... more

I think at least a pre-screening should be done, but not a full comprehensive screening you expect the renter to pay for. They'll just look somewhere else to rent if that needs to be done before they can see the property.

You should ask questions about income, credit, background, evictions, pets in the home. If they meet your criteria based off the questions, show the property. If not, don't waste your time.

2 yr. + + wait in list and most list are closed for most 99.8 list .. and if you are white the waiting list is closed and 5yr. wait but they can never call you since the waiting list are never opened to put your name?? ALL waiting is B/S .. it's a scam - there are no disabled Veterans provisions either this is housings way of thanking us .. so stay where ever you are because during your wait you will try renting a studio with no voucher / section 8 / Vets. Vash accepted and you will be here in Miami, but living under the bridge or in in a crack roach infested motel where rooms no bigger than 450 sq.ft. starting = yes i said STARTING at $1,000.00 per month - with paying firs, last and security .. a criminal and credit report with a fee of 100. - 250. And non voucher individuals fee for application is $50. - $200. Pet fees per animal is generally $500. 2 people MAX for studio 3 MAX people for a 1/1 and the pet fee applies to all applicants regardless if it is a documented veterans animal .. a lot of places are now making you pay a water bill separate from monthly rent BUT there is an alternative .. the drug, murder, rape, molesters, thieves "hot spots" within outlying zones of Miami can be a bit less expensive in these areas - the studios are running around $600. but you have to be desperate in order to put yourself in these hot spots .. call the police if you want a listing of these hot spots that satan and all his demons are running wild. DONT do it if you have kids I begg of you, so many school aged kids are the new victims being shot / murdered for NO apparent reason .. Take heed readers .. ... more

So... $387,500 is the purchase price

The seller's side receives 2.5% of the purchase price (which is what's left after paying the buyer's side 3.5%) which is $9,687.50.

You're entitled to 92% of that (per your agreement with your brokerage) which is a total of $8912.50. Congratulations!

Make sure you set enough aside to pay your federal income taxes.

That depends entirely on the landlord. But generally, no. If the landlord can't count on you being there a full-year, that means he'll have to add in potential re-leasing costs (cleaning, painting, advertising, credit report costs) for a new tenant in 6 months, instead of a year from now. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
You won't lose your deposit because the seller wants to challenge the appraisal. Unfortunately, there are plenty of sellers who will insist the value of their home is more than what the comps prove. Sellers may need to sell at a higher price for various reasons BUT they need to learn that most buyers will be required by their lenders to have the home appraised. Lenders will only give a loan UP TO the appraised amount - not $1.00 over. Therefore, if you or any buyer wants the home that desperately, you will need to pay the difference between the loan amount and what the seller wants to sell it for. The good news is VERY FEW buyers will pay that difference and buy the home for what the seller wants. This puts the seller back to reality - that if they want to sell their home, sellers need to face reality and learn (the hard way) that buyers will not pay their higher price - no matter what the seller wants.

In your situation, the good news is I doubt the 2nd appraisal will appraise this home much higher than the 1st appraisal did. Typically, appraisers use the same listings to appraise the home, so there won't be that much of a difference. The bad news? You need to find out if the 2nd appraiser is in line with the 1st appraiser - can the seller still sell this house? If the seller owes money on their mortgage, do they have the money to move out? Be prepared that this seller may be having financial difficulties and may not have the money to move out. If this is the case, you will get your deposit back but end up having to find a new home.

Bottom line - typically when sellers challenge an appraisal and they are asking $15,000. more to sell their home means the seller is having financial difficulties. Start asking questions and get some answers.
