Could be. I would be very weary. I know of landlords living in other countries, but typically they have an agent handle the rental or a property management company in place.

Renters generally do not pay any Realtor fees to find or lease an apartment. My contract with renters allows me to collect 1/2 of one months rent from the landlord after a lease is closed. Renters pay nothing for the service because the landlord has already offered an incentive to the agent through the MLS listings.

In the event the agent finds you a property that is not listed, and the owner is unwilling to pay the agent to facilitate the transaction, the agent may ask you for compensation. This is very rare and should be discussed beforehand.

You can work with the lender from the very beginning to make sure you do not ask for too much from the seller and then to make sure you spend as much as possible of the seller paid closing costs. Down payment is separate. It is a good question. ... more

This is an Ihda program. Available to first-time buyers only. There are other requirements, but it is a down payment assistance program.

You should talk to a lender on what else is required and if you are eligible. ... more

It may be true that some of President Obama's policies may be in direct opposition to getting this economy churning and burning again. Don't forget one important fact.

The American people are a creative and resilient bunch. They have reacted to extreme conditions before and have come away with flying colors. As an example, in the 1980's, the interest rates hit 16% or more. We still managed to sell a lot of properties through assumable mortgages and contract or installment sales. The people that took advantage of the situation at that time ended up with a great investment and good equity.

We may never see the quick growth of value that we saw in the past but real estate should still be one of the best investments you can own.

Call me to take advantage of the current low prices and interest rates.

Alan May answered:
You can always sue, but the real question is "is there any chance that you can win"? Exactly what "negligence" is the lender responsible for?

Did they disclose all of the fees involved? Was your income / debt ratio acceptable? Did they lie to you in any way?

Unless you can show that they mislead you in some way... I don't see any hope for winning... but then, I'm not a real estate attorney... and this would be a good question to ask of an attorney.

Location is central. Near expressways but too many foreclosures in last 2 years. Now prices are at bottom in this area. Seems to be safe from a buying point of view.

Hi Joan,
The Assessments are about 250 depending on the specific unit. Heat, gas, and water are included in the assessments. The mechanicals are well maintained and not more than 25 yrs old. In buildings to this magnitude the mechanicals are often well maintained and can last for many many years. This building is FHA approved so it is maintained in great shape. Unfortunately there is not a garage for parking but there are several places for sale. Please let me know if there are any other questions that I might be able to answer for you. ... more

You could find a rental in the North Side of Chicago. That is a good area for young adults. I'm 24 and I love the NorthSide. Plenty of things to do for a young professional. But city life isn't for you, try the neighboring areas of Skokie, Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Highland Park and look for rentals there. However, the northern suburbs is quite pricey so you are really going to have to search. Hope this helps! ... more

Tim Moore answered:
As with any rental you pay rent to who ever the owner tells you to. Normally it is the owner and what they do with the money is none of your business. They are offering the rental as a month to month because they fear it might go to the foreclosure auction and be bought by the bank in which case the lease would be worthless, so they are being honest with you. ... more
