I just got on here to look for any new listings on house's for sale, I came across you question asking if Williamstown is a safe area? I am responding to this question because I lived in that county for 4 years, I believe it is very safe. I also look at it no matter where you are, could be the safest place in the whole world and all sudden their would be a crime or several crimes all in one day. We do not know what is going to happen tomorrow, we can only hope and wish for a safety and happiness for every next day we live for. Contacting the police would be your best option if you really feel uncomfortable about the crime rate in Williamstown area. ... more

If you sold your home in a short sale and your credit was impacted, generally after 2 years you can begin the process of trying to buy another home using conventional financing. Of course nothing prevents you from purchasing a home with owner financing at any time...just need to work out the terms! Tom Hinz ... more

Hoping your "buy agreement" includes a standard inspection contingency clause. If so your attorney can most likely assist you in a graceful exit strategy using the inspection contigency. I know read your add on comment that the seller is agreeing to fix everything - when it comes to inspection, you have the right to ask, and they to respond. Their willingness to fix all repairs does introduce a wrinkle. You need to consult with your attorney for guidance.

Best of luck to you.

I'd love to take a look at the property and get the details to see if I can help you.

I lend in all 50 states and we can do mobile home as long as it is a double wide and on real property.

Thank you,

CTS in Williamstown,
This is your reality.
Anyone who buys the home in its current condition will gut the whole thing and start over.
There is nothing to salvage.
Now, what you need to consider is identifying and contacting a multi-dimensional real estate professional who wlll have access to the tree markets available for this 'As-Is' home.
The multi-dimensional agent you contact will be able to determine for you the market ceiling for a home like this.
Next will be the ARV of the home. With these numbers what makes sense: sell as is or take on a project?
If you have the time and/or would like to gain more experience, I have a Spread Sheet I use for this very purpose. Danill, the creator of the SS said I could GIVE IT AWAY. I use it for my investment purchases and presenting to private money lenders.
Let me know if you would like to give it a try.
Three agents actually proved an easy to find telephone number.
If you are serious, pick up the phone and make a call.
Not serious, use that 'contact' link.

Best of success,

Jessica Bateman answered:
I assume it's credit or down payment is the reason you are not buying correct? I would recommend The Lenders Network, they can refer you to a lender to first see if you can be approved and if not what you need to do.

Good Luck!

Hello Ea7856,
Thank you for your question.
Look into housing assistance programs. Call your local town or borough or social workers.
You did not mention if you receive income. You will need some sort of income to qualify for a mortgage or to pay for your own apartment.
Good luck!

So sorry to say the truth - It will be impossible to remove ALL pictures of your house from the internet! There are simply too many sources distributing information. You may be able to have the photos removed from Trulia, but there are 300 to 400 others companies to contact. Unfortunately, it's like trying to "un-ring" a bell! The internet doesn't forget. ... more

Hi Judi,

My husband and I moved to Forest Hills in 2010 and it is a great neighborhood. Kids still play outside in the summer and it looks like a Thomas Kinkade postcard in the winter. You cannot beat the gas lanterns and beautiful trees. Most developments now rip down the trees and build cookie-cutter houses, but forest hills preserved the trees the houses were built around. We're so happy we moved there.

Hope that helps!
