I am interested in this question as well. I own a two acre farm property just out of town in the Cottle area. There is an adjacent farm (lots of goats) and a very nice little house on the property. It is fronted by another two acre (I think) farm property as well. As I am trying to decide whether to sell or rent it will be helpful to understand the types of reported crimes in the area that need to be watched? ... more

Hi Julian,

This really depends on the area. You can check in your area the rough cost of building a home that is typical for the area, then add land value, and make a determination. A local appraiser might also be able to shed some light on your project.

Kind regards,

Annette Lawrence answered:
I do not believe that will be possible in your profile.
The listing will be tied to the listing agent and their license number as it appears in the MLS and entered in Trulia.
On Trulia two agents can not own the same listing.

HOWEVER, what you publish on your blog is a different story.
You can promote ANY listing as long as the broker and listing agent is identified.
You can see some examples on my blogs titled with CIS Score.

Of course if your broker (the listing agent) gives you the green light you can do what is most beneficial to the team. Most likely the broker will direct you to identify the broker and listing agent but use your name and contact info.

Don't let a foreclosure stop you from buying a new home. See Comstock if you have a buyer in need. They have a flexible credit loan. This program assists homeowners who have recently been through a foreclosure, short sale or have recently emerged from bankruptcy.

Ron Thomas answered:
Priced at $189, I cannot pricing it any lower,
especially at $76 per square foot!

How many Open Houses have you done?
Have you done a Broker's Open House?

Is that really a 3 car garage?

Do you have it de-cluttered?
Personal items, like family pictures removed?
Does the house smell?

The Showing is not restrictive.
It has a small lot, but that is a positive to some buyers.

Good luck and may God bless

Robert D Hughes answered:
Flower, good for you in wanting to purchase rather than rent. Interview a few agents and hire the one you believe has your best interest at heart. Also get pre-approved by a reputable/knowledgeable lender who should know the best available financing for you.

Many different programs out there. No credit is better than bad credit. Show utility bills paid on time, and and landlord referrence you can obtain should help your case.

Best of luck to you,

Here's a blog I wrote on how to find lease-to-own homes:

One of the suggestions I do make involves Craigslist, as Robert's suggested. Just be careful; there are a lot of scams on Craigslist. A lot of them.

Hope that helps.

It's true Noe, we don't have a description of the property you're referring to on this end. However there are, in some cases, ways to find out the expected listing date if supplied the address. You are welcome to contact me in the morning to see what we can do. Just click on my name for info. ... more

It all comes down to your debt to income ratio. And folks, another great reason boyfriends and girlfriends should NOT buy a home together. It VERY often turns out this way.

If you don't know by now;
That property was sold three weeks ago for $91
We couldn't find it because it was in LIMBO during the Escrow.

If I can help you with anything else, please let me know.

Good luck and may God bless

Ron Thomas answered:
This is not a good question for a Realtor:
We are bound by a Moral and Ethical Code to follow the law and protect our clients interests. We should never advise anyone to lie or cheat.
My best advise, would be to talk to other people, particularly an Attorney or Legal Aid office.

I have heard that sometimes the Bank will give tenants a check, for what they call "Moving Expenses" which is designed to make your move quick and without any damage to the house. You should be contacted by the Bank's Realtor. If you haven't, you may want to call them, and ask about it.
Good Luck and God Bless

Ron Thomas answered:
I have handled Short Sales and Forclosures, I have studied Deficiency Judgements; I consider myself and expert on the subject: But I will tell you that I don't know.

There was supposed to be an Amnesty Period a couple years ago, 2008 I believe, and I remember it was supposed to last two years. I think it was Federally mandated to help homeowners. This would be something for you to research.

Also, I understand that some States have different laws and protections, and it will vary from State to State.
California evidently has the best protections for the Homeowner, but it may not be 100%
And if you LIVE in another State and the house was in California.... Flip a coin.

I also remember something about if the Homeowner was "Destitue"; meaning that they didn't have any obvious assets that the Bank could go after....

It's possible that this could hang over people's heads for years; particularly if they try to buy another house too soon.

We absolutely have not heard the end of this. This could be the thing that will be the next WAVE, after forclosures.

The bottom line; have a serious meeting and invite your Attorney and your Tax man.
