I listed on Prelist not too long ago and got great service with employees immediately answering my emails and calls. My house was sold in two months, much better than I was expecting. This website works for anyone, I myself was not great with computers, but with the help I got my house sold with ease. Best thing for sure was that it was all completely free. ... more

You will probably have a hard time getting a mortgage without any credit. I would start working on your credit right away and start saving money in the meantime. If you click on the link below it will take you to a blog I wrote about Building Credit Starting From Scratch. Good Luck.

Your best answer will come from the school district. We know a lot about homes, mortgages and general real estate information, but school district rules change often enough that you should get that directly from the source. ... more

Yes you are.
Yes they do.
Will you?
Just like anyone starting their own business, I am confident you invested the time and energy needed to analyze the elements of your businesss. In so doing, you know what your business is about, You know who and what comprises your prefered business. You know how many whos and whats exist in Pikeville, KY? You know the income that can be derived and the costs associated with being in the real estate business. You have chatted with other professionals and understand what the REAL expertise is that is REQUIRED to make you successful.
The outcome of such research allow you to develop a general business plan concept. From this you will be able to identify the brokerage best qualifed to help you acheive your goals. This choice is crucially important.
If you have done none of this, your effort is comparable to a business owner shouting, "My store is open for business!" Failing to do proper research, this businesss owner may be attempting to sell refurbished pacemakers. Sounds like a good idea....but can't succeed for so many reasons.
It is never to late to actually invest what is required to know the business you want to start. If you don't, by default, you will be in 'residential sales' like everyone else who shouted, "My store is open for busness!" 95% of newly minted real estate agents will never see their 2nd aniversary. These newly minted agents actually BELIEVE what other agents tell them. What they hear is "Get more training" and think that is a good substitute for preparation. They will find within two years, this is wrong. You will not earn a dime occupying a seat in a office room 'get'in more training.
The real estate business is the most amazing business on the planet. It provides opportunity for EVERYONE who is commited to the goal of success. There are a 'gazillion' ways to acheive success. Unfortuneately, none of the roads to success can be found by those who fail to prepare.
I wish for you the very best in success.
You may want to pick up the phone and call a few prominate real estate professionals in your area. It is AMAZING how much real estate professionals will share regarding to the secrets of this business with those who exhibit a commitment. Such a commitment often means overcoming ones fears, calling somone you don't know, and asking of them a great favor. This will be your first step in understanding the cooperation real professionals offer one another. Don't take my word for it. Pick up the phone and call a Pikeville Ky real estate professional or two.

Dale Walters, CPA answered:
How you own the property may dictate many things such as probate, income taxes, US estate taxes, liability exposure, etc.

Before I can answer the question more completely, I need to know if this is a second home with no rental activity or if it will be rented. The other questions is whether your worldwide net worth is less than $5.25M or $10.5M if married. Last question is, approximately how much do intend to buy a home for?

Let me know and I will give you a more complete answer.

There a couple of good books that you could read, I suggest Buying Real Estate in the US: The Concise Guide for Canadians.

I would definitely speak to an attorney about this right away, before it is foreclosed on. Kentucky is a dowry state so you likely have rights to the property, as well as any children he has, which need to be explored as well. ... more
