Honorata Gruzewski answered:
Absolutely, you should ask. Sometimes when house is sitting on the market for a while and seller is not willing to go down on price rent to own may be the way to go for that seller.
Also, Realtor can point other homes with that option.
Good luck to you, and it doesn't hurt to ask.

Absolutely! Once you have chosen a Realtor, they could be present during that time. A good home inspection would be written up in a report that can explain exactly what they have seen, most include pictures as well. Good luck and Happy Holidays. ... more

Fannie Mae properties are government owned homes which have been foreclosed on.

A good home inspector should run around $300 give or take. Check out reviews and ask for references when calling around.

Good luck and Happy Holidays.

Every Seller is different. Depending on the offer presented; If you allow for the Seller to leave the home on the market as an alternative could make the offer more appealing and/or have your home already listed and ready to go. It is one of those situations where "if" plays a part. Good luck. ... more

A Title company is what you really need. They will make sure the title is clear and they will get the name on the title changed at the county court house. Their fee will be minimal. You do not need a lawyer. ... more

Russell Benson answered:
Thanks to the stealing of data, your home and everyone else's along with the photos may end up on hundreds of website so it might be impossible to get them all off but the more reputable ones should be willing to comply with a request to remove the listing but the listing agent will control a lot of it. Another route, one that I often do is asking the listing agent to remove all of the photos except the main exterior one. That might be a quicker way to get the photos off and then others will come off in time.

Best of luck!

Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

Teri Reed answered:
An experienced Realtor will be beneficial in helping you throughout the buying process. An experienced Realtor can guide you in selecting your neighborhood and helping you find the right builder. Your Realtor-advocate will work to make sure your best interests are represented in the building contract and can ensure that your price is in line with other homes sold in the neighborhood.

I worked with a couple in Edmond a couple of years ago who bought a new home that was almost complete in the $500k+ price range. The builder had a great reputation and said they would do several inspections to make sure the home was built to specifications. I advised my client to get an inspection from a reputable company anyway. The inspector found some electrical wires in the attic that were crossed. This was a fire hazard that was remedied before the couple moved in.

Your home is a major investment. Why not use someone who knows the process to help you?

Annette Lawrence answered:
Since the property in question is 'investment' property, the potential of portional owner financing is very real.
-
The best path to success is having your agent write your proposal FIRST and allow them (owner) to counter.
Such offers have many dimensions of benefit including liquidity in three years that offer you additional benefit or the owner to cash out via a note sale.
-
You need a good agent.

Best of success.
