I'm glad I am not the only one who doesn't get a return e-mail or phone call I think that is unexceptable and terrible business ethics, they should always have a return number or else I dont' bother anymore. ... more

This may differ from state to state. In North Carolina I believe in most cases the sellers could file insmall claims court. Our contract in North Carolina is pretty clear about what happens the buyers or sellers do not follow through with their contractual obligations. ... more

Are you on the loan, or just the deed? If you're on the loan, that will be a problem. You really need to talk to a lender to see what you qualify for.

Gerald Vonberger answered:
They might have increased the value of the property since they bought it, so they're ready to sell it to make a profit. It could also be that they weren't able to manage it effectively. You should obviously look at financial statements to see what the returns would be like coming from the property. You might also consider hiring some sort of management company to take care of the day-to-day. ... more

Dear Keely,

First, let me thank you for serving our great country.

Second, finding the right rental is tough these days. The inventory of available rental homes is slim in our Realtor's MLS. There are many lessors who prefer not to pay a fee to an agent so they don't use our MLS. There are many other avenues of finding rentals but beware of the absentee landlord. If you are calling on a property and they can't or won't meet you at the property, it's probably a scam. I have been working the Dover area most of my life and I can help you decipher the good from the bad.

Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions. You can use my cell # 603-781-4099.

I took a few minutes to see what may be available in our mls. I found two house rentals, one for 1,500/mo and another for 2,995/mo.

Hope to hear from you soon.

It's very difficult to gauge if an area has a drug "situation". However, the Dover Police Department is considered a superior municipality. Also, the crime rate/100k is far below the national average. There are a lot of college students currently housed in Dover, but all in all, it's become a safe haven. Somersworth and Rochester are a little more dicey, but you should feel pretty secure when situated in Dover.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any other questions you have about the area or otherwise.

Thanks everyone for your input.

The plot thickens.....

The problem realtor is the listing broker and also the only member of their agency.

So, am I just stuck with it?

Should I offer to add some cash to level the field?

Should I contact the VA?

This has happened before...submitted a cash offer for a property through my agent, who was told It was "too late to submit the offer today. It'll just get kicked out of the system"...only to find a lower non cash offer from her client was accepted the following morning.

I understand the need to make a living, but am I the only one who takes ethics into consideration?
