Hello,

That is a great question and makes me wonder if there are any rules pertaining to that. I can venture a guess and say that generally the answer would be yes BUT only if you replace them with a similar kind. You would not be able to just leave an empty space or a hole where a plant once was.

I think a plant may be considered an addition to the home that is "attached". Like a built in dishwasher or a cooktop oven it becomes a "permanent" part of the home. At that point the only way you would be able to take them would be to replace them.

Also, make sure you put your request in writing to the Landlord prior to removing anything. Also make it clear that you will be replacing them. You don't want any issues AFTER you move out, everyone needs to be in agreement.

Good Luck,

HAIG

Depends on your area. There are some programs like a VA loan or a USDA loan that do not require down payments. You need to check with a local lender as they can guide you in what you need to do. Good luck. ... more

Both VA loans and USDA loans don't require a down payment. There may also be first time buyer grants available in your area but you really need to contact a local lender they will be a wealth of information for you. Good luck. ... more

Hello,

The answer to that is YES you can still short sell your home. I am guessing you are dealing with a Realtor? Have your Realtor send the offer and any necessary documentation, to the lender IMMEDIATELY and open a line of communication with them.

It is obviously too late to postpone the Sheriff sale (if it happened on the 12th). If for some reason it has not happened yet, talk to someone at the lender and ask them who you need to talk to, to postpone the Sheriff Sale.

If it is too late, don't worry, you still have a 6 month redemption period in order to try and accomplish this. It would have been better if you were trying to sell your home sooner than you did, what were you doing the past few months, was your home listed for a while and JUST got an offer?

Whatever you do, start on Monday and make some calls, or have your Realtor do it. You need to get the offer "in line" at the lender along with their other Short Sales to get the process started. There is still NO guarantee the bank will accept the offer but you never know with a short sale.

Best case scenario would be that the Sheriff Sale has NOT occured yet. Get on the phone and start making some calls to see which department you need to reach and who you need to talk too.

Good Luck!

Hi Timalice,

Yes it is feasable. There are several housing developments in the Crystal Lake school district where you can purchase a home in your price range. I specialize in the Boynton Beach area selling single family homes and condos. I would be very happy to help you find your new home. The first thing you need to do is get prequalified for a mortgage unless you are paying cash. That way you will know how much house you can afford and when you find that perfect house, you will be able to make an offer right away. Please give me a call if I can be of further assistance to you.

It depends on what you are considering the best. If you are looking for the best area for schools or the best area for least crime then the first thing I would check is the school reports for the areas as well as the crime reports for the areas you are interested in. Unfortenately by law we cannot give that advice of what is deemed to be the best, we can only recommend these reports for you to decide on. ... more

Generally there are more properties as home owners have been waiting for the spring market. However, at the moment there is a low overall inventory in Hanover and the surrounding areas so if you see something you like don't wait too long to make an offer or it will be gone. ... more

Remax Interactive answered:
It depends on if you're a renter with a lease or the home owner and also who buys the home. If an investor purchases the home and agrees to allow you to stay in the home then you don't have to move but if someone purchases it that wants to live in it you have to move out. Ideally you should move out now to avoid being forced out. ... more

Alison Hillman answered:
You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Best,
Ali, Trulia Voices Community Manager

Kandy Theriot answered:
This house is a repo and it is currently under contract. With repos, they usally do not take back up contracts, but if something happens with the first contract, they put the house back on the market. Repo's are never available for lease or rent to own, but sometimes an investor will buy it, repair it , then rent it. ... more

Andrew Fox answered:
No maam i wouldnt worry about finding an agent that specializes in them. As long as your agent is familiar with the process involved you should be ok. More important is finding an agent that you like and get along with since the process can sometimes be a long. I enjoy foreclosures when it is a cash or conventional buyer.

Mona Elmore answered:
If you would like to send me your email address, I would be happy to forward you the listing from the Milwaukee Metro MLS. This would include the history and documents attached to this property. Are you coming to Milwaukee to personally see the home? If not, any real estate agent you hire to write the Offer to Purchase would need to put in the contract documents that you have not personally seen the home and are purchasing it based on MLS documentation only.

Each property in this area needs different repairs. The City currently has the home assessed at $63,800 and it is in foreclosure.

Best wishes. monaelmore@remax.net

Of course they do, First time buyers have a good chance if they have the right REALTOR and said REALTOR having the right offer and relationship. A serious buyer has to have all its ducks in a row:
-Letter of approval from the lender
-Proof of funds
-DU Results, Credit Report
