Since rent to own properties may not be listed as such, consider working with an agent of your own. Keep in mind that rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, therefore do inform yourself well, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate beforehand. Rather, why not consider saving some additional money, FHA loans require 3.5% down; also consider shopping around.... ... more

I can't say for sure without contacting the condo association and/or asking the listing agent but I don't see why not if you own the townhouse. If you'd like to shoot me an email I can send you more info on the property and work on getting that answer for you. I will send the listing agent an email tonight.

Are you out of your cotton picking mind?
Do you think that a CONTRACT is nothing more than a piece of paper?

It may not have a HUGE impact but for buyers that are tight on margins, it could be a make or break of a deal. Or buyers that would rather spend their money elsewhere. I had a client walk away from a house they LOVED because it had a $2000/yr flood insurance cost in addition to regular insurance.

Not familiar with the market you are in, but if you are looking at a sizeable increase, I would bet that it will affect selling.

Good luck.

Michael Cheng answered:
For a foreclosure, you'll have to pull up county records and check with the foreclosing bank to see the current state of the process. Usually, that's all you can do since these properties are not yet for sale.

For a pre-foreclosure, you can approach the owner of the property and offer to pay off their debts in exchange for the property. However, the debts are usually in excess of the current market value of the property.

This means the property is under contract but still being marketed. The most likely reason for this on properties, are that the sales contract is subject to the approval of a third party for a short sale. This means the sales price is not enough to pay off the mortgage and the lender needs to approve taking less in exchange for releasing the lien.

I would be happy to discuss this more with you or answer any questions you may have about Palma Del Mar. It is a beautiful location.

I wish you the best of success.

Normally, I encourage Buyers to visit a complex before buying: Investtigate the HOA, talk to other residents and find out where the bodies are buried, what's good and what's bad.
If you are buying into the park; are they $100,000 in the red, or facing a big lawsuit?
How's the parking?

Good luck and may God bless

Hi Gatorgk,

55+ community one or all owners must be 55+ to purchase and reside in it. If you are looking to have family and friends use it, you need to check their restrictions. 55+ tend to have more limits as to how long children (under 18) and guests can visit and some say an owner must be there for them to be able to use the facilities. On the other hand many of the 55+ communities are less expensive so it is a matter of weighing out your needs.

Are you currently looking for a home or just browsing on line for now? I have a free service called “Listingbook”, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS, which updates daily: new listings, price changes, solds & withdrawn listings, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know & I would be glad to set up your free Listingbook Account.

Since you live in the area, I also have a free automated service called CITY (Curbside Info to You) available 24/7. I issue you a number you can call on ANY Real Estate For Sale sign and a computer reads the MLS information to you, from the street number & address for all ACTIVE MLS listings. If this would be helpful let me know. If you have a smart phone & TEXT "PAMELA" to 727-213-5142 it will give you a free mobile site. Bookmark it to you front page and use it anytime. Email me your cell phone & I'll registered it so you won't get annoying follow up calls. If you want to talk to me there is a prompt or you can call me on my cell. If you want to put it on multiple phones, I can put up to three numbers on one user name. Just send the numbers you want added. Put it in your favorites for quick access when you are driving around. I use it all the time.

I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Sincerely,

Pam Cohn
