Hi Babar,

I think it would probably be adviseable to find another property farther away from an airiport. If you're planning to rent it out, a savvy tenant could definitely make the argument for a reduction in rent due to the airport noise. In the end though, it all really depends on exactly how close this property is to the airport. Some people don't mind, but all other factors aside, it might not be a good idea if you're looking to rent it to tenants. If you need more help or have other more specific questions, feel free to give me a call at 716-218-0015.

Best wishes in your decision,
Anja Wright

If your property is listed with an agent, ask him/her to update the status; or directly contact Trulia's customer service department, under the Help tab.

Not sure your question is understood--you can go for a walk whenever you wish--if you have safety concerns, contact/call the local police department and ask all your questions.

Congratulations on graduation, finding a good job and saving some money. Chances are you do have some credit, a cell phone, student loan, utility bill etc. If the home only costs $15,000 you have 1/3 down and may be able to obtain owner financing. If you meant the home is $150,000 I would start with a mortgage broker or your local bank or credit union. FHA requires 3.5% down payment, so you are close at the asking price. Find an agent to represent you and see if you can get a better deal. ... more

It could mean that the information shown came directly for the assessor's office--an assessor evaluates properties for tax purposes.

Kevin Olson, Jessica Laude answered:
Generally text messages have not held up well in court because there is no proof of who sent the text, just which phone number it came from and who was supposed to read it. Ultimately the landlord should have got something in writing for both you and themselves to sign. Contact the local housing authority to find out what steps you should take, and what your rights are. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Keep in mind that much will depend on the location, condition, other area rentals and the rent they command(ed), etc.--not sure any agent can verify that the rent is fair without seeing the home first--therefore consider inviting any agent(s) over and ask for recently rented similar properties--review the data and make a determination as to a fair price--and possibly consider listing your rental with the agent you like best. ... more

I have just listed four homes myself. The fall market is usually good and inventories are much lower. I typically do well in the fall and winter as a listing agent. I agree that the best time is the late Spring but trust me, buyers are looking now!

Alan May answered:
Who pays the transfer stamps (transfer tax) is determined by the community, in which, the condo is for sale. Check with your local municipality (call city hall) and they will tell you who is responsible for paying that tax.

Sometimes, if it's a new development, and that community requires the seller to pay the transfer tax, the developer will put something in his contract that states the opposite, and unsuspecting buyers will get stuck with it. But in a typical 'resale', you follow the municipalities rules.

In our area, most communities charge the seller, buy some charge the buyer.

Nothing like Fla. We never had the spike so not seeing too much of the drop other than people that bought at inflated prices and have to sell now. A lot of refi's going on right now because of the low interest rates which mean that homes that should be going on the market are being refinanced and those sellers are not going on the market for the next couple of years. Call me if you would like to talk:

My best guess would be that you contact the builder of your home or contact your county. They may have blueprints on file. I'd start with the assessor's office.

Not knowing your overall finances, amount owed etc.,--visit with any qualified loan officer(s) first, see if you do qualify for another mortgage and how much--then go from there.
