Never heard of an ESCAPE TAX, perhaps you should go down to the Assessor's Office and ask them to go over it with you.

It depends on the auction. This process will not be like a standard purchase, but you still might want a real estate professional to help.

When looking for an online or in person auction property, you need to be prepared to pay the cost and associated fees in full. You will not be able to secure lending in these situations. ... more

It's probably a scam. Are you finding these on Craigslist? You should be able to look at the apartment before you make any payment. If the landlord or property manager is not willing to meet you, move on. ... more

A good start would be to lower the price to current market value. Another step is to communicate the new lower price to anyone who has shown an interest thus far. This message could invite them to take a 2nd look. It might also announce 7-10 day offering period with a deadline. This will likely get you several offers.

If you need any open house, marketing or staging information, please let us know!

I believe we re talking about the updates and upgrades here.

When talking about home projects before selling a property, there are so many things to consider.

Here is a good article with a list of improvements and a ROI calculation on www.thisoldhouse.com:

http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/article/0,,408045,00.html

Ultimately, everybody should consider the city and neighborhood they live in, because the remodeling/improvement has to be consistent with the type of home a buyer expects to find there and the buyer's economic power. Also, I would refer to recent sales in the neighborhood and the condition of those properties.


Cheers,
Alina

Editor answered:
People mistakenly think it is the Realtors that are driving prices up. However, it is actually the buyers who set the price of any property. If it is too high priced, the property will sit on the market. If it is priced too low, then there will be multiple offers. If people are desperate enough, they could effectively drive the price up OVER the actual market value. That's why it's best to have a Realtor on your side who can give you accurate information to help you decide on what price to offer for any given property. ... more

No, renting is not selling the property. (Prop 13 is not about renting)

This looks like a scam...
I'd assume this isn't real as a modern 2 bedroom in pac heights is going to fetch a premium...

I would say that most are a scam. I still see agents advertising like that.

The primary 'no money down' option is for Veterans with the VA. There are some zero down loans tied to rural areas ...

For most folks however, the easiest way in is through FHA...these loans require 3.5% down...and it's still a good idea to have some of your own closing costs, as well as some saavings.

Here is the link to the FHA to learn more: http://www.fha.com/

No - a landlord can not evict you for a yelp review, if it's all true you are bulletproof, if not liable, slander and small claims court may be some terms you want to Google. This seems a bad idea, ... more

Hi Allison,

Landlords only need to provide a phone and address where you can send the rent check or any other communication.

If you have a situation that needs to be documented, you can always send a letter with return receipt required.

Do you need something fixed or brought to the attention of the landlord?
If yes, write them a letter. If it's an emergency, phone is always the best, and then follow up with a letter.

Just like tenants need to follow rules, so do landlords. If you need more specific information, please post your question on the board.

Landlord is required to give notice to cure violation but since you are posting here and know it's wrong why push it ?- no pets means no pets + although landlord should not be able to evict you unless you do it again and chances are will not even notice - they could go after you to abate pet dander and fleas costing you a possible small fortune - your asking for trouble. ... more
