Lexi answered:
perhaps you could lookup the owner's info or call t he Tax dept of the county, to see who is the real owner, explain situation, get contact info, then contact them. Also send a letter to the house address, with a note on t he front to usps, saying to forward it. If the same people receive it, that might be a good clue. ... more

Whenever you allow the public to enter their own rental information, you will find scams. The likelihood is that the $1,895/month rental was the legitimate one, and the $900/month version was a scamster.

I'm sorry that you've had a bad experience, but I think you're over-reacting just a little bit.

It means the taxes are substancially less for now and the rest are are deffered until the timber is cut. Then you pay taxes on the sale of the timber. When you build on this type of property, 1 acre will be taxed as a home site (full tax rate) and the rest is timber deferred. For example I have 76 acres for sale. It is now $493 per year taxes (tbr deffered). When a home is built 75 acres will be TBR deffered and the taxes on the 1 acre homesite will have full tax rate on it.

Natasha Ochs answered:
Wells Fargo has a special loan program called CDMP that only requires 2% down for those whose income is less than $56k. It is a 30 year fixed conventional loan. The best part is that there is no Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) so your payment will be lower than if you went with an FHA loan with 3.5 % down. Your Debt-To-Income Ratios will then be better and you will qualify for a higher purchase price. I had a couple last year that were only approved to $100k with an FHA loan and through this CDMP program they qualified for $125k, which was what they needed to find a home at that time.

Academy Mortgage has a Down Payment Assistance Program that will give you 3% or 5% that you could use towards the down payment, or to closing costs and prepaids. If your agent is able to negotiate that the Seller pays some of your closing costs then a buyer would have fairly little out of their pocket to close the transaction.

Brenda Wiest answered:
Are you on South End Road? If so I would wait because the boundaries may be changing very soon. The final meeting is January 10th, 2014. Also before you decide you should call the city and ask if any changes to the boundary are coming soon if you are on the Beavercreek Rd. , or Henrici Rd. side. Most likely the UGB will stay the same. The majority of the residents are opposed to changing the boundaries.
So.. its your call. Our inventory is very low right now and homes are selling because there are buyers wanting to buy. Your property is on the higher end of the market and traditionally they take longer to sell. But in the OC Beavercreek area it is very desirable.
Best wishes,

No. But unless you have money to burn, (pardon the pun) anyone owning a home and not insuring it has rocks in their head! It's not just physical damage you need to protect your wallet against, but the potential liability and/or possible lawsuit against you should anyone get hurt on your property. ... more
