Ron Thomas answered:
I have found that the best way to do this is, Do it Yourself:
Drive over there, get out of your car and walk thru your new neighborhood; knock on doors and say "I am your new neighbor, tell me about this place, and about the HOA."
You may learn more than you bargained for.

Good luck and may God bless

A Realtor cannot legally tell you the best area for the questions you have. I suggest checking with the Police department for crime rate. You may find the information online. As for the schools, you can check scores and other aspects of schools being better than others either with the school districts or online. Usually the newer areas and newer schools are more desirable but then usually, the taxes are higher too. When you start working with a good Realtor like myself, they will help you to find the best areas for your family. If you buy now, you can take advantage of the low prices and incredibly low interest rates. There are some low down payment programs if you are using FHA financing. ... more

Completely depends on the size of the pool, if there is a jacuzzi along with the size of the house, and if its a single story or two story. It also makes a difference how often you heat your pool. The variances will make a huge difference on your electric bill. With all that said, it typically runs an additional $200.00+/mo to run a pool without heating often. If you need assistance in your home buying needs, please feel free to call me, I am happy to assist you. Carol Reed 951-660-5786 ... more

With the seller's permission, the listing agent may disclose what the other offers are.

Dan Tabit answered:
Your credit score is a function of your credit history, current balances, past high credit, number of inquiries and judgment or collection activity. Your score can go up if you pay your bills on time, keep your balances low and don't have any collections.
Credit scores will adjust as new data is reported. Talk to your lender about suggested credit repair for your report and see what they suggest.
The amount you borrow isn't affected by your credit score but by you income and down payment, so getting a less expensive place won't help.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Hi Cory, you really need to speak to a lawyer. The rules change from State to State. Some states do not allow deficiency judgments, some do. If yours does then you need to look at the contract. And you also need to look at what is common for your area. My State allows deficiency judgments, but they are rarely pursued for other reasons. The only person who can really answer your question and perhaps provide you with options is an attorney. ... more

Hi Smileystar,

Either contact the association or your landlord (you're listed as a renter).

Hi, Kate. Your Realtor can help you with this. There are many programs available. A good Realtor will have references for you for direct lenders that can get you qualified for the loan. There are REO properties that have special financing available and your agent can help you with that.

Please contact me if I may be of service.

You should contact your agent and ask him or her to fix this for you. Remember that there is no deal until it is in writing.

Shanna Rogers answered:
All lenders are different (the seller's lender - not your lender). Since I don't know who the seller's lender is and/or the Short Sale negotiator at the lender's, I'm not sure about not being able to ask for an extension until 48 hours before the Trustee's Sale. I've never dealt with that before - I've been able to get extensions on my previous Short Sales without having to wait until 48 hours before the Trustee's Sale. As for "am I going to lose this house?", it's a possibility since it's past the approved close date of 4/4/11 and the extension hasn't been approved by the seller's lender yet. However, it's not an absolute that you will lose the house, just a possibility. It depends on the seller's lender, the seller's lender's negotiator, the investors (this is who the ultimate approval of the Short Sale comes from), and your Realtor.

I hope this answers your question,

Ryan Smith answered:
Hello Home buyer. This is a great question. I didn't know the answer so I reached out to my preferred lender. Go to the following link: You will need to enter a code that your loan officer provided you with. Your loan officer should be walking you through this entire process, if they are not, I think this is a Red Flag!

If you need a referral for a loan officer please let me know. I work with some great direct lenders that will be happy to explain this process to you.

I hope this helps!

All the best!

Anna M Brocco answered:
Yes, not all agents are created equal.....therefore consider interviewing a few agents, or as many as needed, from different realty companies and then choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer--ask what marketing strategies will be implemented; what plans will be put in place to coordinate meetings with buyers; what feedback (communication) can you expect and with what frequency; will data be supplied to help establish a fair and marketable asking price; will buyers be pre-screened and required to have mortgage pre-approvals when submitting offers; what other services does the agency offer, if any, etc. Choose your agent with care. ... more
