I've sent requests twice to have the number changed, it should be 900 square feet not 768. This was before the home was remodeled in 2004. Please let me know why this isn't correcting…

Hi. There is no 2266 or 2249 Belmont listed in the MLS. I looked up the real estate taxes for the county and $46.21 is past due in 2012 and $107.47 are due in 2013. This is just for the county not school and township/city. So it may be something that is a potential foreclosure that may come to market eventually.

It is not a rent to own. Also, there are currently no rent to own properties listed in the MLS for the county of Washington that exist to my knowledge. Usually by the time they come to be listed with an agent you will not find a rent to own. Try Craigslist and the paper.

FYI. Rent to own properties are not common like they once were, when interest rates for the mortgages were very high. Once upon a time it would have helped a buyer to work with a seller that would consider taking payments at a lower interest rate than available at the banks. Now the people offering rent to own generally want a much higher interest rate than what is available. The ultimate goal of the seller is to find someone with poor credit that will fail so they can start the process all over with the next buyer.

I understand that things like medical bills, divorces, and lost jobs can cause damage to credit that may take a lot of time to repair but I believe you would find it worth the wait. You will have a much larger selection of homes at a far more affordable payment. If you can bring a credit score up to 640 you can qualify for an FHA loan based on your income. I have seen some of the lowest credit scores improved to a 640 in only a year and often less.

It is wonderful you have decide to become a home owner. It is a fantastic goal with a very satisfying conclusion. I especially enjoy helping someone move into their first home. You can give me a call or email and I am more than happy to set you up with a mortgage specialist able to help you achieve your goal. I hope that you will consider contacting me to help you get started, and finished.

Thanks so much for your question.

Luther Wormack answered:
Hi Wilson, what the agents below are say is that downpayment for this property depends on the loan you choose. If you go conventional, you can expect about 21k. If you go FHA or USDA it is much less. USDA loans are often zero down.

We work with several buyers from investors to first time buyers. If your goal is to purchase a home at the best possible terms painlessly and affordable feel free to contact me directly. lutherw@remax.net or 724 689-0023. I'll walk you through the process, get you prequalified so you know the terms up front, then one of our showing agents can help you find the home you're looking for, even the one you mentioned.

If you'd like you can register on my site on the buyers form and we'll gladly send you more information, just place in the notes section we talked on the trulia.

Hope this helps

This house has sold. If you want to give me some criteria, I can do a search for you. Just let me know the school district, # of bedrooms, bathrooms, and any other items that would be important to you. Have you been pre qualified? Do you know the price range that you would be able to purchase?

If you send me an email, I would be happy to help you in your search.

Good morning, Heather!

That is a very good question! With so many agents around, how do you know which would be a good match for you?

Since many now do searches on the internet (86% according to the National Association of REALTORS), find agents in your area. Then, check out their profiles to see how knowledgeable they are and what their specialties and expertise are.

Once you have narrowed it down to a handful, interview each one. After all, they will be your employee until the end of the transaction. This is also the largest investment in a lifetime you will make and therefore, you need to make sure you "employ" the best agent for the job. Ask the agent numerous questions to find out more about them. The more questions you ask, the better.

The agent should be concerned about your needs and look out for your best interests, not theirs.

Good luck in your search.

Joe answered:
My best advice to anybody on the verge of being arrested due to the police having irrefutable evidence of somebody filing a false police report, would be to wait and see how much money they have left after paying thousands of dollars of attorney fees, bail, and impending civil lawsuit filed by the victim of false and malicious claims, before springing for a new house. ... more

What I mean by livable is does the water, sewar, heat, and gas work?

To start you can email a realtor who can pull the public records which will tell you the mortgaged amount of a property depending on the property.
