Put it on Craigslist. It depends on what year the house & subdivision were built, and some homes have both.

There is no set formula as every transaction & property is/are different. I highly recommend you work with a local Realtor & look at recent sold comps. Plus factor in how much you (& your family like the house). I am at a home inspection now we were 5th offer but made the strongest & complete offer & my buyer "won" the property. Remember on short sales, no one knows if the bank will let it go even at full list price. A lot of factors go into your decision, best thing you can do is work with an experienced local Realtor.
Best of luck.

As a Realtor, I am not allowed to make comments about Crime Rates. I suggest you call TPD for inquires, or check out this web site for any inquires about Tucson Crime Rates.

What subdivision do you live in? I believe you would be better off on Google Maps than to ask a message board on Trulia.

Best of luck.

I recommend you talk with a local property management company (try Google), I know several clients that have rented out guest houses, but I am not an attorney & do not know if it was "legal" or not, I do know it is done a lot.

Consider calling a property management company & not only will they answer your questions but they can help you find available rentals that met your criteria as well.
Good luck.

Most likey yes. Please talk with a lender to get pre-approved & then click on the profile(s) of the agents that take the time to answer your question. You can read past reviews written by past clients to get an idea of what kind of agent I am & I would like to work with you.
I can recommend Paul Volpe, Vice President at Nova Home Loans, (520) 241-4048. Give him a call, he will answer your questions & see about getting you approved & for how much. There is no cost nor obligation for you.

Good luck. Buying a house should be an exciting & educational process.

The real estate market is self regulating and homes are only worth what someone will pay for them. If someone likes Civano enough to pay that amount then the property will sell. If not it will sit on the market and will eventually come down in price. If you are in the market for a home in that area give me a call and I can help you find the perfect home.

Each lender is different and has their minimum. I would suggest you talk to a lender of your choice, or, I'm happy to refer you a couple of names. Often, if you aren't able to buy "at that moment", the lender can help guide you so you will be qualified very soon. Let me know if I can help!

Hi Just W(ant) to Retire:

I love these kinds of questions...no right answer, but makes one think.

As with almost anything in life, you can do what you want (Anyone can sue anyone; doesn't mean they will win, but we give them the right to do so.) So, the question is not if you "can", but if you "should". And, again, as with almost anything in life, only you can really answer your own question.

Yes, you can simply move out and quit paying your mortgage. In fact, over the past few years, many people have NOT moved out, and just quit paying. It is a violation of contractual law, however, so I would strongly suggest you contact an attorney, if you want a legal opinion. (But, whom would be asking such a question on Trulia.com if they wanted a legal answer?)

The hard part is determining if this is what is best for you...As I am assure you are aware, doing so will have a material negative impact on your credit scores. So, you have to ask yourself, "Do I plan to use credit again in the next 3-7 years to buy a car , another home or anything else which will be negatively impacted by my having turned my home back to the mortgage company?" These days, for example, almost all car insurance premiums are based on credit scores. Potential landlords look to your credit scores and how you have handled other real estate-related transactions (mortgages, rent, etc.) to determine if they want you as a tenant and how much security deposit and rent they feel they need to charge to overcome the risk you now represent. Etc., Etc.

If you don't care about your credit score, however, possibly because you truly do "just want to retire" and will not need credit in your lifetime, and you do not have a problem with the ethical question of renegeing on a debt, then I would think it makes sense to do so.

I hope this helps.

Steffy Hristova answered:
Keith,
The Listing agent has probably received multiple offers and is giving a second chance to people who really like the property to improve their bid. It is quite common, when the market is turning and there are multiple offers, the listing agent to ask for the Buyer's Highest and Best Offer. You can stay at the offer you have already made, you may improve the price or terms of your offer or do nothing ...Your Realtor will advise you on the best strategy.
Good luck!

Ric Mills answered:
The first thing you need to do is hire a full time Realtor to represent you and give you all the information. We work for you, but are paid by the seller. We can go through everything and make sure you get the best deal possible. Without someone on you side, you are dealing with someone that only represents the seller/developer and is probably not a licensed Realtor, just an employee. Let me know if we can help. I have lived in Az since 1972 and have lived in Phoenix and Tucson. I have also traveled the whole state for many years. Let me know, Ric Mills 520-548-8940 , rmills@gotucson.com ... more
