You will find that the majority of Lenders are licensed to operate in most, if not all 50 states.
You also may experience that many Lenders will eventually sell your Loan to another company.
Some Banks sell everything, keeping nothing, while other will sell none, keeping everything.
The important ingredient, therefore, would be the Agent that you deal with.
Keep these things in mind when you make you decisions.

Mike Kruse answered:
Giuseppe,

Typically, homes only come with furniture if they state "furnished". If a home does come furnished, expect to pay a premium. As for your second question, it is not customary for a tenant to pay the property taxes. If you have further questions or want information on homes or a neighborhood, please contact me directly.

Hello,....

Usually it doesn't take any longer then it does when purchasing an equity sale (Traditional Resale).

The short sales are the ones to watch out for.
They are the real time consumers,....it can take several months after an offer is accepted before the transaction is approved by the lender.

I would be happy to discuss the pros and cons of differing transactions with you.

Feel free to call or email me at anytime...

My contact info is below...

Sincerely,
Hank Lauzon III

Here in Southern Nevada there are several active lifestyle communities. The cost of living is also considerably less than most of California. The communities of Anthem and MacDonald Ranch in Henderson as well as Summerlin in Las Vegas are options. Please contact me directly and I will be glad to get you additional information on these communities.

The requirements for locking up a rental differ from property to property depending on the property management company and/or the landlord's requirements.

We can help explain the details of each property you are interested in so you know what to expect ahead of time.

We offer a free rental search. If you would like to get a feel for what is out there in your price range with out having to weed out all of the unavailable properties. You can start your free rental search here: http://tinyurl.com/ahtzp4x

It is not based off of sqft. It varies per community and per property.

Email me an address or ML number of the specific property you are referring to and I can get an exact figure for you.

Diggity answered:
Well , ifi were you , I would actually read the disclosures . The term negative issues is very broad . Some people like grass in their neighbor hood and it does not affect them negatively , Others may be allergic to grass and have terrible negative reactions to it . One mans trash s another mans treasure . So without knowing what you consider negative there really is no advice I or anyone else can give you . If you are concerned with crime , then check the local police district , go shopping in the local grocery store , drive through the neighborhood at night . These are all things you have to find out for yourself . Your question is subjective and there is no way to answer it without knowing a little more about what issues may concern you . ... more

I would suggest that you seek an attorneys advice. There are so many things that can happen with a bankruptcy and especially with the type of multiple party situation you are describing

Dawn Lane answered:
I'm not certain what the plan is . Our non profit organization http://www.hopehomefoundation.org is working with several solutions to this issue . We are currently working with employers on an employer assisted housing program that helps workforce families , the real stakeholders in our communities obtain the dream of homeownership . We provide First time homebuyer education , counseling and downpayment assistance as well as foreclosure prevention programs and rental assistance . The employer can improve his bottom line buy reducing recruiting and retention costs . The community is blessed with a grateful homeowner and it creates a cycle of housing sustainability . All at little or no cost to the employer . The staff moral and productivity increas , illness due to stress is reduced . These programs are widely used in the Chicago area . It isn't a new concept. We have been trying for many years to get through to peoria that this really works . Unfortunately the greed wave is winning . The housing prices have increased by 30% in six months . I'm seeing seller financing coming back and FHA not requiring two appraisals . Agents don't put the homes in the MLS and if they do there are 30 offers . It's 2004 all over again . We've been screaming for years , maybe just not loud enough . Thanks for your question. ... more

Kurt Grosse answered:
We are not attorneys on this website and Realtors do not give legal advise. Sometimes attorneys mess things up so I'd say your best bet is to talk to the office and ask them what your options are. They deal with this issue all the rime and should have a policy.
Maybe you could rent it out- replace yourself....
Good luck

Act quickly and make the offers as simple as possible. List on homes under $200k will not be likely to get it done. Fannie, Freddie and HUD homes may give the owner occupied purchaser a chance to get in before cash investors. ... more

June Stark answered:
Hi Kathy - Your best resource is the MLS. That way all agents will have access to the listing. I would suggest offering a tenant agent's commission of $500+. Most homes for rent have commission of $300 to $350 for the tenant's agent. By offering a little more, you will get more traffic than your competition. Your PM can stipulate the lease term to be 1 year or longer in the MLS listing.

Your PM should be able to take care of all this for you.

Please feel free to call me anytime to discuss your options if you are no longer using the PM.

Thank you.
