There is no standard fee that brokers charge. Very often brokers charge landlord a commission based on the yearly amount collected. If the renter pay commission, then depending on the city, the commission rate is either one month’s rent, or ranges from 3 to 10%. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
Peggy, Trulia is not a property management company or a real estate company. This is just a website where people (landlords, realtors and property managers) can post listings for sale or rent. There is no set "rate" for a senior citizen. You'll have to contact each landlord or property management company directly and find out what they have available and what the rent is for that particular place. Good luck! ... more

If you live in an area that has frequent blackouts and brownouts... it might. Otherwise, probably not.

When purchasing a home, it is a good idea to use a Realtor. If you hire a Realtor, he/she will work in your best interest. This is especially important when it comes time to negotiating.
The Multiple Listing Service aka MLS has a field that is required for taxes and other pertinent information about the home. Not all sites pull ALL of the information that is listed.
I have seen homes that are listed for sale on other sites, when in fact, the home is not for sale. You have to be careful of scams as well.

Best of luck to you.

I would contact the Landlord to ask how much time you have before you have to vacate the property.

Here is a link that may answer some questions.

Best of luck to you.

Hi Barbara, I am not an Agent but was many years ago on Long Island. I am currently looking for a home (due to Divorce) for under $100, in a decent area...good luck to me with that! ANYWAY, when I saw you have approved lots and then I saw Greenville, have you seen the prices of houses in Greenville? MY POINT Find a reputable Realtor & or Builder... a few possibilities. Find out WHAT SCHOOL DISTRICT (unless you already know) and go from there. There are MANY couples from Manhattan that would love to raise their families in Greenville. Best of luck to you.
PS-I have worked with quite a few Realtors up here and have to say they are extremely nice for the most part but as with anything, be careful.

It will be enough only if the cat does not need its own bedroom. (sorry...just couldn't resist).

Is there enough room in the apartment to set up a play area (toys, etc.) for the baby? Baby will not stay 1 year old forever and I don't know how long you are looking to stay in the apartment. Think about next year and the year after.

I agree with Don, there unfortunately isn't a way to speed up the bank, assuming of course that the short-sale negotiator in the situation is keeping in constant contact with the bank.

Good luck with your purchase and the new baby!
