Suzanne MacDowell answered:
It's already recovering here. In some towns, Randolph, NJ for example, there is only a two month inventory, perhaps even a little less. With such low inventory it would not be at all unusual to see prices begin to rise. That is a recovery, it may not be a strong recovery, but that's OK, we don't want a repeat of last time, but still a recovery. ... more

That's not a question that someone else can answer for you. I would suggest you do some "foot research" and visit neighborhoods that interest you, and get a feel for the area to see if it's right for you.

Good luck!

The only way to be certain is to have a mold inspection done by a professional inspection company. If you would like a referral to one give me a call or send me an email. There is not a database of homes/properites that have been "infected" unfortunately, so it is always buyer beware!

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
I have a feeling you don't truly understand what is involved in a lease with the option to own.

To be brief - the sale price is usually set NOW, not when you actually go to purchase the house - do you really want to lock in a price for the future?
You also have no idea what the rates will be in 2 years.

Another very important part is that you will have to give some NON-refundable upfront money.

If you don't have a lump sum to give, you will pay an amount of money OVER and ABOVE the normal rent. That overage is the amount that will be applied to the purchase.......or forfeited if you don't buy the house.

I think some people in your situation mistakenly think their entire rent will be applied to the purchase. This is not usually the case.

So.....
Here is the problem...........if you don't qualify now (which is what you stated ) then you better make darn sure you will be approved for the loan 2 yrs from now.......and that the house will appraise out.....or, you will lose that upfront deposit.
It's risky.

My advice?
Save up and get your credit and income where it all needs to be so you can move forward with a purchase when the time is right.

Best wishes.......

Peggy Pfohl answered:
Did you have an agent assist you when you were filling out the rental application form? Usually, the person you leased you the town home will let you know what fees and utilities you will be paying for. In most cases, the owner of the town home will continue to pay the HOA fees. It should be in your lease agreement what the specific terms and requirements from you are.

You can always check on georgiapublicnotice.com to see if your town home is currently in foreclosure or not -- or if any home in Georgia is currently undergoing foreclosure or have been, etc. etc.

Not paying HOA fees won't affect the tenant but more than likely, the home owner since your name is not on the mortgage. Or just ask who you are leasing from all the questions you have so that you will hopefully get an honest answer in return.

Rick Musto answered:
In real estate, EVERYTHING comes down to the written contract you signed. While I do not know the specifics of your contract, from what you have described it sounds like you are contractually bound to live up to the terms. Always try to negotiate with the other side, but ultimately it could come down to a judge deciding what the contract calls for and what both parties did/did not do that violates the contract. Best of luck!
