Thank you for the question.

It is something you would have to negotiate in writing with the business.

Do not feel bab about missing the tax credit, with interest rates below 4% you are much farther ahead than the receiving 8k credit. IE a $500 principal and interest payment when the credit was available would get you a $79,105 principal amount, at today's 4% rate the same $500 gets you $104,730. So you can see you now have $25,625 more purchasing power.
There are many different 1st time buyer programs and I can put you in touch with the experts.

This depends on what kind of loan you have. You should talk with your mortgage broker for the correct answer, since they know what stipulations there are with your mortgage. Good luck with your new home! ... more

No , unfortunately I don't.

Thank you for the question.

It is for the most part a convenience for people not to be able to see in.

If you decide to not have it you may want to put one in if you ever decide to see.

Have a great weekend

Typical banks don't want to lend on properties under 50K. Some will though. I think 75% LTV would be about the best you could hope for with no personal guarantee and that may be a stretch. ... more

Megan Bower answered:
You can go back to the tax records and see what other homes in the neighborhood sold for in 1996. That would be your best bet. If your Multiple Listing Service was around back then there might be pictures available, but that was pretty early in the Internet world and it's doubtful you'll find much. ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
Forget the appraisal for a moment. A bedroom is a room with a door, a closet, and egress (a window) That is the real estate definition of a bedroom.

When you bought the home did you see it before you bought it or did you buy it sight unseen? Since having bought it have you made any physical changes to any of the rooms removing a door, closet or window(s)?

There's really no way to confuse whether a property has two bedrrom or three and if you made no changes I'm at a loss to understand your question. As to whether you have a chance in court, I strongly doubt it, but that's what courts are for. Who would you intend to sue?

It sounds to me as if you never saw the property you bought and went solely on the word of others, if this is true then it was your first mistake and hopefully you will have learned a valuable lesson, don't buy property you haven't seen and inspected for yourself. If you renovated and modified the home and in so doing lost a bedroom, then again you've learned a lesson.

You may want to give a little more information so that others might be able to advise you more effectively.

Before considering the idea do consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate, he/she can best advise as to your option; keep in mind that transferring a deed to a minor could pose some potential unforseen problems, therefore again, it's in your best interest to consult with an attorney. ... more

Unless you can prove the previous owner had problems with the sewer line and failed to disclose it to you, you are probably on your own.

Empty homes have always been targets for thieves. It is an unfortunate situation but it is not the agents responsibility to secure your house unless you hired her to do so or she stated she would take responsibility.
