Maintentance tec jobs in Williamsburg. Are almost impossible to find or get in this area. People. Find a good place. They do t leave there jobs. In this area. You will not find. As in the past. Apartment,Ai tenancy jobs that offer a free or discounted rent to live on sight. The company. Are just not offering apartments to maintenance techs these days much these days. Unless your hvac certified and even than you will not find these types of Mai rename jobs in Williamsburg area. Any more. You can search or select a apartment community that you like and go directly to that apartments/company's online career web sight and search positions available. There are many timeshare resorts in Williamsburg in need of maintenance techs who. Prefer maintenance men who apartment employment background to hire. One of the better places to work is for Wyndham resorts. Search on line or google jobs but don't expect an apartment to be included like the old days. Those are gone. Andwhowants to work these days anyhow where they live? The nightmare of being on site maintence man with small family Can be very stressful on you and your family. You loose your privacy the residents will be at your apartment at all hours of the day and night wanting you to drop what your doing at that moment. You loose you life. Sometimes. Your like a celebrity. Ha ha We have been in multi family housing business for over 25 years!!! Worked and lived in apart,ent complexes in ,any places. We finally got out and went with a well established company with motels and times shares in Williamsburg Florida hw and more. For five years. We have been out of reg apartment maintenance. We no longer live on sight. Where I once was employed. And we are so much more happy. And have put privacy back and can live the way we want. Good luck WITH YOUR MAINTENAMCE TEC SEARCH. I HE YOU ARE HVAC CERFITED. WE NEED SMART. OUT SIDE THE BOX THINKERS AND TALENTED MAINTEMANCE MEN. ... more

Currently, Trulia does not have the tools to correct individual sales transactions. That said, this is a known issue and we are working towards creating a better experience for our consumers. What we can do to as a workaround is to remove the entire Price History section. Although we do not have the ability to fix or remove individual dates, we do have the ability to remove the entire section. This will remove every price history from display on your property page including the incorrect transaction. Although I understand this is not the most ideal solution, this is something we can do for you to help resolve this as best as we can. If you would like to proceed with removing this section, please let me know.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

Thank you for using Trulia!

Tony & LeAnn answered:
That is the whole point. We are stuck and have no recourse. Why aren't buyers protected from this kind of thing? We didn't learn of the cracked flue until we just had the chimney cleaned, three months after the sale. There is no way for us to verify the condition of a chimney flue prior to close?? This has nothing to do with the home inspection. It was a separate contractor who was asked to check out the chimney flue. ... more

But, buyers should go through a house they've seen online and be "surprised" by the interior condition. We had this situation with my buyers looking at a waterfront home in Mattaponi. The house looked awesome online, but was very disappointing in person. ... more

They take off over the river and land from there, so it's not really coming over Queen's Lake. But you do get interesting noises the other agents have commented on!

Brenda Feria answered:

A Short Sale is anything but short. The corporate wheel moves very slowly. Agents who are dealing with short sales are dealing with employees of the bank on the other end of the phone line who work 9-5 and have a lunch hour and breaks. There is no sense of urgency. If one piece of the package is missing when they pick it up to review, it is placed at the bottom of the stack and the clock begins ticking again.

The big challenge is if there is a second mortgage on the property as well. Especially if the second is with another bank or lender. Sometimes they refuse to cooperate and that can put on the brakes rather abruptly.

I definitely think that Frank has given you the best advice which is have a backup plan.

Good luck,
