Kathy Burgreen answered:
Realtors and lenders are prohibited from giving opinions regarding safety of neighborhoods, schools, demographics, religion, etc. because it violates Fair Housing laws.
You will need to do your own research by doing the following: visit local schools and talk to parents and teachers; visit neighborhoods at different times of the day and weekdays and weekends; visit or call the local police departments (you can go to their websites); use the Census Bureau's website -; visit local grocery stores and talk to local residents; visit local parks and playgrounds; etc.

Realtors can provide published brochures and tell you which websites to go to because they did not write the content so it is not their opinion. However, I would do the above because you will receive first hand and accurate information.

you may get in to trouble to maybe bank will come up and foreclose the property and you have to leave the home at earliest too.

Karen Peyton answered:
A personal letter is never a bad idea, and the chances of "moving" the Seller are 50/50. Since you feel you need an explanation, it can only help! What to write??? None of us have seen the property or your bid, so that information should come from your agent. ... more

James Simon answered:
I'm not totally sure whether or not worker's comp would be considered income. For all intents and purposes, it does qualify as an income in some regards. However, when you try to count it as something that you're working to earn, that definition might break down. I think that it depends on the context.

Scott Godzyk answered:
Banks and creditors sell their "paper" aka accounts payable all the time. The key is if the debt is valid, if the collections are within the time frame as outlined by federal and your states collection law. If they get a judgement, than you are at a whole different level of debt and now have courts involved. You should not ignore and consult a lawyer for anything you do not understand to know your rights and or obligations. ... more
