Andrew, Please update us on this closing. Based on my knowledge, if the well is not sealed at time of closing, the buyer could sign an agreement with the city stating that the new homeowner will take this on and complete within 1 year. Is this what you did? Thanks! ... more

It is more common to have a seller do this in my experience. That being said, everything on that PA is negotiable. If I were a seller; I'd have the well and septic certified and compliant upfront. ... more

I agree with the rest. Simply look up the plat map for a good ESTIMATE. However, if needed, a better, more accurate way to procure correct information is to order a survey. Best luck

Aquarius Apartments

Roseville isn't exactly known for our upscale apartment complexes, but your price point certainly will work for my wonderful city. I actually personally stayed in Aquarius and just loved it. Our landlord was fantastic and the rents were comparable. It is very close to the Rose-dale Mall just on the 35W side. You are also close to the quarry which I liked.

I don't currently know of any apartments that come fully staged since I do not work with relocation companies.

Be a bit leery of lenders referred or advertising they are able to do FannieMae HomePath Renovation Loans...

There is a SPECIFIC LIST of lenders :

Anyone who is not on this list is merely brokering it, which means added overlays, process time and FEES!

We do this loan in ALL 50 States!

The NSP appraisal is NOT an issue.

CCC answered:
Pay off what debt? Credit card debt?

Are you looking to do a Cash out refinance? In an investment property I will hardly see it only if LTV (loan to value) is low enough for a lender to take the risk.

You could try to do a Loan Modification to lower the monthly paymet and have some extra income to pay your personal debt but other than that, I do not think a cash out refinance might work out.

I am a realtor who lives and works in the Roseville area and have recently priced and sold several homes in and around Roseville. What I'm seeing is a decrease in appraisals done a year ago. That doesn't mean your house is worth less, it only means that in GENERAL appraisals are more realistic to what is currently SELLING. Please contact me if you'd like a free CMA. ... more

Gretchen, if your question is, "Should I sell now or wait until 2 years down the road?" Then you should sell NOW! That is if you can't wait 5-7 years when the value of your homes will have hopefully appreciated back to your original purchase price. But, don't bet on that! This market has put many people in a tuff position financially and emotionally. I work with a lot of relocation clients some receiving help from their companies and others relocating on their own. These are the people I really feel for. They have a great standing on their mortgage, made all of the right choices, and didn't over extend themselves when they bought their home. The biggest mistake they made was having to move in this market. If you have to move right now I would put your home on the market A.S.A.P. homes are only going to lose more value as the year goes on. I would also recommend you price it very competitively to start and don't waste anytime. The first 2 weeks is your best chance to make a first impression. If you have any question please feel free to contact me at ... more

Keith Sorem answered:
I would recommend a couple of options:
1. If you are going to take a loss, retain the property as a rental Discuss the tax ramifications with a CPA
2. Why are you moving? If you HAVE to move, then talk about the best way to handle the move. Examples:
If you are moving for a job change, are there alternatives? will the new employer pick up part of the cost?
If you are moving for family reasons, will the famliy help out?
If you are moving for personal reasons, will the reduced stress make up for the cost?

3. What happens if you list it you cannot sell for six months? What if at the outset you list it and lease it. You'll have to get into a landlord's mentality.....but there are big gains to be had for being an accidential investor., It happend to me...
