Are you working with a Realtor as your exclusive representative? Your Realtor should be advising you about negotiating your specific purchase agreement with the seller.
Setting future rents, after you become the landlord, wouldn't generally be part of a purchase agreement. Consider what it is that you want to accomplish and consult with your agent, your broker, and your attorney about your specific transaction. ... more

Rich Reed answered:
Hi, Julie, your purchase agreement may include terms of "CLOSING AND POSSESSION." Under these terms, the parties agree to such items as to whether the property will be delivered vacant or not and if the buyer will be provided with keys.
Ask your Realtor to review the purchase agreement with you; consult with an attorney if you need legal advice.
Hope this helps!

The big question is what type of mortgage loan does your Mom have? Typically, a real estate loan will include the land underneath. A "chattel" loan is for mobile homes and possibly manufactured homes that are on rented land. Real estate lenders don't work with chattel loans. ... more

Hi Cheri,
The lender may need to communicate with the agent for several reasons. Some May be: a copy of the contract, a copy of the preliminary title report, the contact information for the title/escrow company, access to the property for an appraiser, to coordinate signoff, when addendum or other changes are made, and other issues on a case by case basis.

Kind regards,
Arpad

Do you need to live there before you sell it? No.

Are you looking to sell your current investment property and buy another investment property? If so, look up 1031 exchange and talk to a 1031 exchange company BEFORE you sell.

If you are thinking of selling it and buying a home that you will live in, talk to your tax professional about repercussions.

Sounds like you haven't bought this house yet? So ask yourself, is it deterring you from wanting to purchase it? Depending on the neighborhood those can be a common occurance so anyone looking to live in those areas "shouldn't" have a problem with them but I'm sure there are some people who would prefer not to have that easement on their property. ... more

Take your CC&R's (Covenants, Conditions & RESTRICTIONS) to the HOA board and ask for clarification. None of us know what your cc&r's or hoa rules state.

Sally Grenier answered:
I like to have my clients get an inspection about 10 or 11 months after you move in. This way, if anything comes up, you'll still be under warranty and can go back to the builder with a list of items they need to correct. For the walk through, that really the time for inspection issues. It's usually an opportunity to "blue tape" things that they can fix easily (cosmetic issues usually). ... more
