It is usually included with your rent. I would inquire with the owner They will know the situation on the rental tax.

If this is a health and safety issue, then you can go through the proper legal process to notify the owner of the home that this needs to be resolved.

This sounds like it might be a scam. If you are looking to buy or rent a home, you should have an agent represent you. These types of scams can usually be identified quickly with the resources that a Realtor has. ... more

I have a question: I found bed bugs in my apartment. I notified my management company. They sent an inspector three days later (all within the provisions of the Tenant/Landlord Act). I also contacted a bed bug expert. Since I read that it was my responsibility to pay for the bed bug fix, I opted to go with my guy (heated treatment vs the chemical treatment my landlord wants done).

I paid for the heated treatment, my guy came out and i'm bed bug free... but now the management is insisting that I pay for their company to come in and do a chemical treatment.

Any suggestions?

Joseph Domino answered:
Well you indicated that you were looking in Scottsdale which pretty much makes this a very difficult challenge. It would have to be zoned for manufactured homes. You could look in one of the county islands around Scottsdale were the building codes are more liberal.

But the real question I have is why would you want to pay $96,500 (plus shipping and installation costs) for 400 sq ft of living space (that's $241 per sq ft) when you could buy a larger home for much less. I noticed these things are cool looking, but once you get tired of sleeping in your kitchen what will you do? And who will you sell it too when you want to move?

And keep in mind, that legally these are not real estate, they are personal property like a car or motorhome.

Whatever phone you get depends on what you're going to be using it for. Some phones are better for conducting business than other phones, and from the looks of it you're going to be using it in an office. I would get a phone with a good base that you can transfer lines easily on. I know I am looking for that kind of phone for my office. Good luck! http://www.comm-pro.ca ... more

Winter Hunter answered:
When buying short sale or foreclosure, we used to run property title search before we make an offer. We should know ahead if the property has any outstanding mortgage, property tax, liens or any thing that need to clear before we could close the transaction. I have been using http://www.nextace.com services for all of the tile search and property report.

Before closing, you can purchase a good title insurance policy will cover all of possible title problems for the new owner.

You want to list your home for sale with an agent that sells a large volume of homes and has an excellent track record--this means that they sell a very large majority of the listings that they take. ... more

A great idea be to preview a few properties that are similar to the home that you are going to be renovating. Then you will know what the condition is of the homes that will be your competition. Just remember, buyers want to get the biggest best deal for the amount of money they spend so when you preview homes--look at them through the eyes of a buyer. ... more

The number one question that a seller asks is--Can you get my home sold, for how much, and how long will it take?

Jennie Miller, Pllc answered:
Have you had an agent prepare a cost market analysis for you? Realtors can provide this for you. This report will tell you the recently sold homes in the area, homes that are under contract, and actively listed homes that are similar to yours in the same part of McCormick ranch where your home is located. If you want to know the fair market value of your home, a real estate appraiser can tell you this.

What is the address of your home?
