Hi Mindy!
Properties like you describe in this area range between $1000 and $1500. I would recommend you call Dave Parlett in our Jack Gaughen Realter ERA office at 1499 S. Queen St., York, PA 17403. He specialty is rental management and if there is a place like available, he would know about it. Our office number is (717) 854-9242. Tell him I told you to call. All the best, Brian Raines, Realtor/Appriser. (I hope this helps you!) ... more

Alan May answered:
Ask the landlord if they'd consider having the place "professionally cleaned" when you take possession, and you'll have the place "professionally cleaned" using the same vendor, when you leave. Including any carpeting... (due to allergens, and potential "mistakes" that cats like to make)...

along with a reasonable 'pet deposit'. That could go a long way to alleviating a landlord's concerns about you and your cat.

Rebecca I don't know what kind of questions your asking, but no typically an agent should be able to get back to you that same day or the day after.

Foreclosure lists are extremely easy for agents to obtain, in minutes actually.

Regarding info on school districts, you need to do that research on your own, here's a useful site: for starters.

You might want to switch your agent if you are not off to a satisfactory start, find one that is a buyer's agent and will represent your best interest during your real estate experiences.

Stephen (Pete) O'Connor, USN (Ret) answered:
For the most part there is a standard waiting (think credit rebuilding time) of seven years. I think it's unlikely that you'll find a traditional lender that is willing to take a risk of such proportion. I do believe too that it's usually 2, maybe three years after the discharge of a bankruptcy that you'll be able to purchase again in the traditional sense. Good luck and keep on keeping on! ... more

Steven Ford answered:
I'm not sure what your asking. There are some (or were) hybrid products called 80-20...where the buyer borrowed an 80% first and a 20% second (2 mortgages) to avoid having any of their own money in the project and bypassing mortgage insurance premiums. That product is pretty much non-exisitent now.

Typically to get a home now you will get one mortgage with a downpayment starting at 3.5% in the case of an FHA loan or 5% or more for a conventional loan. If you are a veteran, you can get a VA loan for zero down.

If this about having one home mortgaged and buying another you have to either sell the first one, rent it or pay it off.

You need a good agent and a good loan officer...that will make all the difference.
Good Luck

Not likely, you should aim at raising your FICO score up to 680. This will get you a better interest rate as well. Your lender may consult you as how to raise your credit score.

Cheryl Finnegan answered:
Since I can not see exactly what you are looking at, I am going to do my best to answer. If you are referring to the last time the property transfered from one owner to another, then yes that was the last sale price. However, there are times when that figure is not accurate. For example if an owner refinances a home, gets divorced and removes a spouse from the deed, or gets married and adds a spouse to the deed then that number will not reflect the accurate last sales price. ... more
