My location is San Antonio, Texas. I will never work with Pete Mann or Scott Myles again. I will never allow Pete Mann to manage the construction of any other home I may own in the future. Pete is careless and by the results, of which to this day I am still complaining on, he cares not about the work he was responsible for or of what is put into writing. The vendors chosen for the construction of my home were terrible and cheap. It appears they did the work with their eyes closed. Then the so called Field Manager failed to even take a look at the construction and progress. Originally I couldn't get Pete to respond to my emails all while Scott too kept quiet until I involved the warranty company (2-10 Home Buyers Warranty). Ask for all my emails sent to Pete Mann, Scott Myles, Victoria Washington and Kimberly Edwards. You'll see the issues I have been dealing with over this home. Issues from appliances, paint, texture details, holes, cracks, trim, front siding, outlets, switches, cable drops, bathtubs, water leakage, and more. I was deceived into buying this home and felt the overwhelming pressure to close sooner than later. Scott Myles is dismissive and quickly says no and when he finally agrees to a repair he too takes the cheap route by going to Walmart to buy "material" only to do the work himself. My statements here only touch the surface of the whole ordeal. Lastly, Pete and Scott are quickly trying to complete repairs so that I may sign off on items. There is no quality in the work done by anyone at Rausch Coleman. I forcefully closed on my home on May 31st 2017 and it is now July 20th 2017 and still dealing with the mediocre work done in this house. As the home buyer I asked questions and usually never received a response even after multiple emails to multiple people. Rausch Coleman Homes' employees lack professionalism and communication skills. Rausch Coleman Homes lack quality and workmanship. Simply put Rausch Coleman Homes doesn't care about home buyers and will pay anyone that can hold a paint brush and hammer to build your over priced new home. ... more

It is possible to get a mortgage while in a chapter 13 bankruptcy, but it requires you to go before the judge and get an order from them saying that they will allow it. There are several other overlays, but this would be the main one so long as you are currently paying any obligations you currently have in full and on time. ... more

Thanks for your email.. The house is still available. I decided to rent the house because we are going to spend more time here in Tuscumbia, Alabama about 4 years.. Let me start by introducing myself. I must confess that I am very new in this landlord business..However, My name is Steven Chappell. I own the house, Due to my job as a Medical Doctor, I works for American Red Cross Lutheran Hospital Donor Center, and now i have been transfer to Tuscumbia, Alabama to work in a branch over here. We spent less time in the States so we could not get a hold on any Realtor to handle this rent issue, although it was when We knew how long we are going to stay in Alabama that We decided to rent out the house. Don't be surprised when you get to the home and see a for sale sign in the home, i had the intention of selling the home once but i thought about it again and decided to rent out the home.. The Realtor are trying to take advantage of me, asking for too much and trying to rip me off and it is a very beautiful home and i will always love to call it my home. So i will want you not to bother yourself about any sign you see in the home saying it is for sale.. The utilities are included in the rent, because of this reason and more we need a responsible person that can take very good care of it as we are not after the money , but want it to be clean and for you to take it as if it were yours.

Information about the house below:

The rent is:$750 Security Deposit: $700
3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom
Address: 1237 Belair St E, Lehigh Acres, FL 33974
Pet are also Welcome.

Please get back to me with the Information requested below I could go through it and let you know if you are capable of renting my house or not.

The concrete is an issue. Almost bought a home from Capital, the front porch and patio looked like a 10 year old had poured it. They said it had rained right after they poured it. They were not willing to replace it. It was a brand new house. So, LSS, I went somewhere else. ... more

I know someone who bought a house and they freeze all the credit cards for 45 days and took that as a down payment then once the first payment was made they release the credit cards.

Robert_mackey answered:
Somehow basic math escapes many of my otherwise intelligent friends on this topic. They, say "you cannot pass up a mortgage rate of 3%". I say "but I can only earn 2% on the money in a Certificate of Deposit". Please help me understand why I would take out a loan to pay rate higher than I can earn on the money if I keep it. Of course, the opportunity cost of capital (2% in the example) depends on the asset class you would otherwise invest the money in. Yes, you could take the mortgage and invest your capital in the stock market and cross your fingers. Assuming your home choice is average, you would be elevating your overall risk. Is that what you want to do at this stage in your life? Also, paying cash will also help you in price negotiation. Cash is King! ... more

YES a person with felony can Buy any home of their choice as long as there is not a restriction on the person that stipulate that they cannot live in certain area. As for Renting a home it would be up to the individual landlords to decide, if they do a background check or you choose to disclose.

I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this does not require us pulling your credit and will allow you to make the best decision for your family. I can be contacted for a FREE no obligation consultation.

Susie Kay answered:
It depends on your local real estate market. Here in DFW area, we are experiencing a hot seller's market in many cities. With so many offers on the table sellers won't even look at those asking for closing cost. Lenders can tell you that whatever they want but doesn't mean it's going to happen. You would need to work with a local realtor to learn about the local market.

I hope this makes sense!
