Every state is different, however in Delaware, agents must disclose if a death occurred on the property.

Check your policy to see if there is language that says the insurance company can do that. There may be. Also call your State's Insurance Commission and ask the same question.

If you are buying with cash, you don't need any credit :) But if you were looking to get a traditional mortgage like most people do when buying a home, lenders do need to see that you've established yourself in some way... but it doesn't mean you need credit scores.

I wrote complete details out in a blog entry called "No scores? No problem. Just use non-traditional credit." at: http://www.trulia.com/blog/shanethemortgageman/2011/06/no_scores_no_problem_just_use_non-traditional_credit and it requires you have some forms of alternative credit like utility bills, cell phone bills, rent, etc.

However it only takes 6 months of recent continuous reporting of trade lines (credit cards, student loans, car loans, etc. anything that reports to a credit report) in order to generate a credit score, and then you would find yourself having more financing options. It's something to think about if you eventually find your financing options are limited without scores (which they will be, because not all lenders lend to people without scores - however we do).

Are you renting right now? If so, what are you paying for rent and what would you feel is a comfortable mortgage payment? Have you figured out what the extra monthly expenses of maintaining a home would be? Outside & inside of the home? If you aren't renting right now, are you prepared to start making a payment? How have you prepared yourself, by each month putting away the same amount of money that you would normally be spending on a housing payment?

Please let me know, and if you'd like help figuring things out I'd be happy to help you with that too.

If your question is directed to the owner of the property, keep in mind he/she may not see the message--therefore, you may wish to work with an agent of your own, and he/she can inquire, or consider sending a note to the address expressing your interest in renting, or try knocking on the door. ... more

Jeff:

Since you asked the question from outside the U.S., it would be helpful to know which areas of the U.S. you are asking about, so you can receive on-point answers.

Marsha,
you don't have to be an agent to sign up with Trulia, and you don't have to be an agent to Blog about your property. So, I guess it depends on the type of advertising you wish to do, but blogging about it is one way to get it exposure. ... more

John Hamilton answered:
Moe,
It seems a little late to be asking this question if you are already in the building stage. However, I do not think that insects or rodents and the like discriminate based upon a homes location i.e. golf course, lake or mountain view. If anything you might get less insects because the golf course is always spraying to control weeds, fetilizing to enhance grass growth, and golfers are always hitting balls and when they hit the insects it usually kills them. ... more
