Hi Rdlpaul, I recently heard of a loan called The bridge loan. which supposedly allows a homeowner to buy a new home before selling their current home. Not sure who does them now though, check with your bank. By the way, If you need to find a realtor anywhere in the world, i work with a company that can help you find a top realtor. This service is free. You can go to my website: for more details. Let me know if you have any questions. ... more

I'm the Sellers agent, we received an offer and we sent a verbal counter offer because the original offer was not even worth writing up a counter offer.

The buyer's agent sends me another counter offer and I rejected if via email with my client's consent.

Now she wants the rejection in writing from my seller.... do I need to send a formal rejection signed by the seller?

A narrow reading of your question would say the answer is they would not pick A as they are buying it together. A would be more common for investors or in cases where one party has bad credit. ... more

As recommended by several respondents, the best advice is to work with a licensed real estate professional. They can show you listings that meet all your requirements and also help obtain specific data you are interested in.

For crime statistics, I have found the most accurate data is that which comes directly from the local police department in that jurisdiction. They can also share information with you that is not necessarily reported or logged as a "crime".

Good luck in your search.

No the IRS will not force you out of your home immediately. However, the IRS can do the following:

They can garnish your income
They can place a lien on your home
They can foreclose on your home
If retired, they can reduce your Social Security income
They can seize your bank account

If you owe the IRS money, time to pay up.

Time for another three year update. Love how these old questions never die. It is no longer possible to buy an investment quality house for under $100,000 in the Orlando area. Those days are gone. As I said three years ago, St. Cloud is an excellent spot for value investing, but plan on the high $100's as a starting point. ... more

This is really a question for a real estate attorney. The first meeting is usually free. If you paid for a separate termite inspection, that's probably who to pursue.
