There are pockets of different neighborhoods in Green Valley that deal with scorpions. The best advice is to talk to the neighbors in prospective neighborhoods to ask if they deal with the challenge. You will find homes that have had no scorpions across the street from homes that continually deal with them. ... more

You need a minimum of a 620 credit score. In addition to that, you have to have a low debt to income ratio, 2 years of job history preferably with the same company or in the same industry and several months of bank statements showing that you make the money you say you do.

What does your question have to do with who picked up the HOA package? You have a certain number of days to go over the HOA. If, after that time, you decide to cancel and it is in writing. The escrow is cancelled and the EMD goes back to the buyer because you disagree with the HOA. ... more

Hi miz10,

You should contact a Realtor in the area you are interested in and 'hire' them to assist you. It shouldn't cost you anything as the seller usually pays the commission for both the buyer's agent and the Listing Agent. A local Realtor will be able to locate properties for you that match your search criteria.

Good luck.

Commissions are always negotiable between you and your agent, there are no set standards as it would go against Federal Laws--price fixing/anti trust. Therefore if looking to sell, invite and interview in person few local agents from different realty companies, then choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer; choose your agent with care, and not by commission alone. ... more

Hi David - Seven Hills is a masterpalnned community and has a couple of condo complexes. One ia called Avalon and it is located on Seven Hills Drive. Is that what you are asking about? I do not see a unit # 2024 in the MLS. There is another called Horizons. We would need an exact address to see if the property is still available.

You can e-mail me directly at and I can see if I can help you - Please send buying parameters. Thank you.

Both Summerlin and Henserson are very nice. Visit for school information and search for schools with the highest test scores. Henderson is closer to the airport and the Strip. 7 Hills has nice parks, so does some of Summerlin. Just remember most parks are unusable in the summer during the day as it is too hot. You'll find the Henderson rentals slightly better than the Summerlin rentals. ... more

Sun City Anthem was selling properties in 1997 but the first homes weren't built and ocupied until 1998. It was finally closed out in 2008. The total number of properties in the subdivision 7,316. There are 31 different models and Del Webb allowed changes to those models by way of a Gold Key program which allowed the home owner to customize their property as they saw fit. ... more

We can work with that FICO score if everything else is in order. Do not pay an old collection debt until you speak with a licensed loan officer, if you go with me I can explain in more detail. You are going to have to claim the cash income to show higher income to qualify...its like a catch don't want to claim to save on taxes, but you need to claim to show income for a mortgage loan. I would move into an inexpensive rental until after you file 2011 and show good income. Feel free to contact me.

It's perfectly acceptable for banks to reject full asking price offers if the property is a short sale. The asking prices for those properties were randomly posted by listing agents and have no bearing on what the bank would accept. ... more

Marita Topmiller answered:
Hi kpage,

A short sale with 2 lenders involved usually takes longer. The 2 lien holders
have to agree on the amount of money each will get of the price you pay. This
has been my experience with my buyers.

For example, if you find 2 homes you like equally and one has 1 loan to
satisfy and the other has 2 - pick the home with 1 loan. However, if you fall
in love with a home and it has 2 lien holders, go for it, if you can stand an
extra wait time.

Good Luck,

Bill Eckler answered:

There's nothing wrong with trying to get the best deal possible but the banks have a responsibility to protect the interests of their share holders as much as possible and are bound by procedures. It isn't as simple as picking a number that you feel works for you.

Banks have to work with the current market information that are accurate indicators of value. This is accomplished rhrough the use of current appraisals and BOP's. This information should justify their position.

On the other hand, you can justify the necessary work required to bring the home back to livable standards as well as doing you own value investigation. Ask your agent to provide you with all of the recent area comps for sold homes in your area. Reviewing this information may provide you with proof of a value that supports your cause. Providing this information along with your repair evaluation may give the lender reason to reconsider their position.

Without information to support your cause you are likely fighting a losing invest some time and make your best offer and then........move on to explore other opportunities. Things simply happen for a reason!

Hope this is helpful.

Good luck,

Hi Misha, don't rely on anyone's advice here; we are not attorneys.. contact an attorney.

The accounted difference is a written off debt. If it's cleared and marked as paid in full upon short sale completion, you should have no worries about them pursuing you or your new husband.

I did a bit of research, and I found this helpful (I hope you do, too):

Oh, and congrats on the new marriage!

Keep in mind that RealtyTrac's information may not always be accurate and oftentimes can be misleading--you could be looking at a lis pendens property--notice of default--some of those properties may not be for sale yet, and some may never be, if the default is satisfied by the owner. If you are interested in foreclosures, work with an agent--he/she will have access to reliable information... ... more
