With scams being so pervasive, you'd do best to work with an agent.
Some listings presented for sale and rent on sites such as this don't even exist (e.g. a fake house number on a real street). The last thing you want is a contract with a crook. It happens! You must be careful!
Contact a local agent in the area (where) you will buy and let them vet the Sellers for you.
Good luck!

Diana Hellman answered:
I think it's true that across the board, with the extremely cold weather up to now, we see fewer homes than usual coming to market and that creates an increase in the value of especially homes that are in nice condition. Buyers can get discouraged, but I think in the coming months there will be more inventory and a better situation for potential purchasers. ... more

Hi there,

Unfortunately property owners (at least in California) are only required to disclose deaths on the property that have occurred in the past three years from the time of a sale. From a realtor's perspective, the property owners are our only source for that type of information. ... more

Yes you can purchase them with cash, If you don't need the program you don't need to use it. Usually it is around 30 days typically a normal close of escrow, but I have seen some go faster than that. ... more

Check with the bank you do business with first. If you are borrowing a small percentage of loan to value, perhaps your credit will not be an issue.

Ray Spitler answered:
Hi Tammy, you can start by asking your friends or family who they have used and are happy with. If they don't have any recommendations for you, perhaps doing search from Realtor's in your area and calling a couple Agents to discuss your needs and see who you feel comfortable with. You can also read their testimonials on this website.

Of course, I would be happy to have that conversation with you as well.

Happy hunting!

The west side, especially west of Bay Road, north of Congress St. is a very nice area. I lived in that area for three years (as a divorced woman living alone) and had no problems at all. I only moved because I met someone from another town and we moved there. My home is for sale (3 bedroom brick Cape Cod) 2019 Brenner, 48602. It's listed on Trulia and with Berkshire Hathaway Realty. Good luck with your move! ... more

I can't say that one is more desirable than the other, it depends on what you are looking for in a neighborhood. Golfside is located in Saginaw Township but it is right at the edge of the City of Saginaw and where Saginaw Township begins and is filled with beautiful homes. ... more

Mark Wygent answered:
Someone who cannot disguise their interest in and commitment to matching their client's desires with the right home. Every purchaser and every sales agent is a person, and as varied as the leaves on a tree. But fortunately for us, we, unlike leaves, may give some verbal clues regarding our inner lives, and the things which matter most. Are you the right agent for me, and am I the right client for you?

Ryan Seifferlein answered:
That is a question that you need to be sure and have answered before signing any documents or paying a security deposit. There is no standard to what "Rent" includes. However, it does seem to be common around here that "rent" includes the property and sometimes water and trash, leaving you to pay electric and gas. As I stated before though, each rental property varies in what is included. ... more

The foreclosure process can take a while...sometimes even a year or more! Unfortunately, you'll just have to wait til it comes on the market....if it doesn't get bought at auction.
