Haven't heard of any dumps that were healthy. I think if I lived near one I'd be wearing an oxygen mask 24/7 just to be safe. Yes it affects values big time... foreclosures however may not be related given all the new condo/home buying that occurred in the 90's and Helocs that were processed for fancy stuff. But having a dump very close could seriously affect resales by the lender or even short sale purchases. Could be more of an opportunity for investors to buy and rent...but the banks are not discounting the foreclosures in the area like they did several years ago. Tom Hinz ... more

What does your seller's disclosure ask? Many will ask if the home has ever been treated for something, or had remediation for something.

When in doubt, it's always good to disclose - and provide paperwork for any work that was done.

What us your agent advising you to do?.

Your contract should contain dates by which the work is to be done of the funds are turned over to you to accomplish the task. If they weren't shame on whoever drew up the contract. Any contract needs to contain a what, where, when and what if it doesn't happen as anticipated clause. Read your agreement, talk to whoever drew it up and explore your options. ... more

I've always really liked how recessed lighting looks, just because it makes the lighting look more natural. I would think that the price would depend on first, who you get to install them, and then secondly what kind of lights to use. Since replacing lights in recessed lighting can be difficult I would suggest using LED lighting so that they last longer! ... more

3-4 years is a long time. If you have a need for it while you are there then by all means replace it. Fencing is unique in that it can and in some cases does not add value. It does add to desire by the buyer. No fence is better than a rotten fence unless a fence is required due to a pool , kids or pets. ... more

The best realtor to choose to market your home will be the Realtor that will be proactive in marketing your home and actively seek buyers for your home to get you the highest and best price. You also want to choose an office that is busy. I take a proactive approach and my listings sell. In the past 30 days my office has taken 95 new listings, 85 homes have gone under contract and 49 homes have closed. I'd love to add your home to our list. of satisfied customers. Feel free to call me!

I have been involved in 3 inspections with a thermal imaging device. It is a neat gizmo, but the operator needs to really know what they are doing or you end up opening up walls for no reason. It did find a tiny tiny leak that did not even produce a wet spot but when the ceiling was opened up - there it was dripping slowly and had been for years. ... more

rich and virginia answered:
If you take a home equity line of credit, you never have to close it. You just take the money when you are ready to buy, and pay it back when you sell, then take it again for the next investment. I have a client right now who does that. The nice thing is that with each purchase and sale there are, or should be, profits! So you can eventually, if you so desire, you just use the cash from your accumulated profits. I am really good at finding these properties, since I have worked with so many investors. Let's get in touch directly and do some business! ... more

Jeanne Feenick answered:
If the listing broker agrees, be sure that the release is "unconditional". That way should you choose to list again you can do it without running the risk of owing two brokers commission, that would be an "ugh!"

If they refuse to cancel, the good news is that December will soon be here.

Good luck to you,

Deborah Madey answered:

Sorry to hear this. I, too, am surprised this made it past both the Realtor and the mortgage rep.

Here is another link that addresses FAQ for FHA Condo purchases.......I thought it might be helpful for you to read through these

In circumstances where a property fails to appraise up to the purchase price, it could fail and be terminated. More often, the buyer and seller reach some agreement and the transaction goes forward. It cold require you to bring additional funds for the downpayment, or the purchase price could be renegotiated or some combo of the above.

Best of Luck!!
