Good luck finding it. Most of us have been looking for this type of home for clients for a long time. The competition is fierce for homes in this price range. You will have to go $10,00 or so over the list price to get the home. BTW: you will be competing with about 15 other people who will also be paying cash. ... more

Fire extinguisher Should be installed in every property but is not required. Usally apartment buildings have a near by water Hydrant. Each state has different building codes and regulations .

Normally it depends on the community or owner you are renting from. Some charge a higher monthly rent for month-to-month rentals. Some require a higher deposit. Just depends.

I'd pick out a few places of interest and then ask around. ... more

There is no typical early termination. It depends on the owner of the property to dictate the price. That price varies since it is not pre determined.

There are many companies that will handle the entire eviction process for you. If you are unfamiliar with the process I highly recommend that you one of these companies so that you handle the evictioin by the book and don't open yourself up to further liability. If you need a recommendation to a company that I have described please email me and I would be happy to forward you their contact info.

Best Regards,

It really depends on the property manager, but typically what they'll do is do a walk through of your home and any repairs that need to be made (that were not existing before you lived there) are noted and repaired. You will get a copy of the punch-list and the amount they paid to do the repairs and that amount is taken from your deposit with the difference being credited back to you. Your lease should outline this for you and the process varies depending on your contract.

cbvegax answered:
I would like to add that we have been in contact with the VA and our latest response is the following:" You can assume the loan and release her from liability without using any
entitlement. That would be thru the holder of the note. Her entitlement
would still guaranty the loan but VA would not hold her liable for any debt
associated with that loan if the loan were to go into default. " but from what i gather... my entitlement and ability to purchase a home would be unavialble right?

Unfortunatly in the current market you need to place your highest and best offer. If you are financing and the property is less than 200K, expect to be outbid by a cash offer. The sellers agent usually won't disclose what other offers are on the table.

Summerlin and Centennial Hills both sit higher than the rest of the city. So those areas normally don't have flood issues. There are flood zones everywhere in Las Vegas. Check the grading of the home you are interested in to make sure water won't run into the home.

A credit report for the non-purchasing spouse is required to determine any joint or individual
debts. Any ACTIVE debt that is not in your name must be considered in your debt-to-income ratio and residual. Collections are not considered active debt.

Also, the Credit history of the non-purchasing spouse should not be the basis for declining the loan and the FICO score for the non-purchasing spouse is not considered either.

Based on the information you have provided, from a spousal credit standpoint you should be fine.

I do a lot of VA loans and I am located here in Nevada so am well versed in the area.

Feel free to contact me directly at 702-800-5077 and we can get you pre-approved.

The seller is willing to carry the loan for you. You normally will pay a premium price and higher rates. All of this is negotiable between the seller and the buyer.

James Bellile answered:
It depends on who you are, what you own, and, of course, the ever so important, where you own. Do you know the local laws? Do you know what an SRPD is? Did you know that having a real estate agent representative historically has averaged about an 18% greater return on the property sale than an FSBO? That's far less than they charge and avoids a lot of hassle.

Mostly the banks don't make mortgages on condos in Las Vegas. Most of the condos have litigation against them so none of the banks will make mortgages on them.

Hey New Casa

USDA is zero down, VA zero down and many states officer assistance and grants to help with the down payment required by FHA and conventional loans.
Suggestion for you; gather up all the information you can and than find yourself an experienced ethincal loan officer who works for a lender that offers all of the loan types.
You will find an artilce on no money down loans at and an artilce, Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers. Also be sure to read about the MCC tax credit.You will also find a link to your states grants and assistance.
After you have gathered all of your information you will find loan officers and real estate agents in your area on Trulia offering their services. A very good source.
Best of Luck, Stephen
