No they are not, you have to get all of your questions answered and if you did not know about this before the offer was agreed upon, you may want to consult an attorney. Alsom go to the city offices check out the property there. Be sure of he facts before making your final decision.

Good luck

Good Morning Allen,

All legal questions should be directed to a Real Estate Attorney. That being said there is no law that I'm aware of allowing an automatic release of a real estate contract within 24 hours. If I had additional information on what contract you are referring to I could possibly assist you better.

Good Luck,

"B",

Good Morning!! As long as you can qualify for a mortgage (income and debts) you are eligible for a Homepath loan. Our fair housing laws do not allow you to be discriminated against for being on disability.

Michael Warren answered:
Hi

It appears there are bank owned houses not on the market everywhere in the Metro Detroit area.
It is very difficult to determine how many there are for a specific area. I have seen when banks take possession of a house (after the end of the redemption period) that it can be a few weeks or several months before the house iseven put on the market for sale. If there is a specific house or area, I should be able to tell you the status of ownership (pre-foreclosure stage, foreclosure/in redemption stage, or end of redemption meaning it is now owned buy the bank). Also, let you know when it hits the market.
Call or email if you have further question or need assistance with your real estate needs.


Sincerely,

Mike Warren, CDPE, SFR

Hi Allen,

The best thing to do is to consult with a contractor to determine a rough cost. With an existing basement there, you'll definitely want to talk to an expert.

Thanks.

I can highly recommend two brothers. Each has their own company, however, they are currently working together. They are Bob Slade, RL Slade Custom Homes, and Jim Slade, Brook Valley Homes. They have built high-quality custom homes for 30 years. Both have exquisite wood finishing skills and are honest and trustworthy. Wonderful examples of their skill are apparent in their own homes built in Goodrich. If you would like to be put in touch with them, please contact me off line.

Good Evening!! I've done a search for rentals near Andover High School and haven't come up with any within your price range. You may want to contact an area buyers agent to assist you.

Your choices include reprting any violations of law to the state real estate commission and any violations of ethics which is more what it sounds to the local board of realtors.

Doug answered:
That is the DU refi plus program, a government sponsored refinance option that has flexible ltv guidelines and can even go well above 97% as high as 125% without PMI if you had none prior to refinancing. Costs vary according to the ltv. Great loan if you are worried about appraising high enough. It does the job it is designed for and helps homeowners get out from under lousy interest rates into better loans. ... more

Derek Bauer answered:
Seenu,

You are best-served speaking with a professional inspector / mold expert with regard to this. I have seen many properties that with an investment were restored to a habitable and safe condition.

If you are working with a buyer's agent, they should surely have a referral for you in that regard. If you are not, I would encourage you secure a buyer's agent.

My best to you

Hi Karen,

generally, with a 20% equity position, Conventional would be your 1st choice because you eliminate any type of mortgage insurance premium. The main reason you would want to invetigate FHA would be for qualifying.
All other things being equal, you would qualify more going FHA.

Hope this helps----email with further questions. johnkane@edinarealty.com

The sale will be recorded with the County which is your best best. I would be happy to check the public records for you. Just forward the address at your leisure. The Seller may have paid a premium to the auction company as part of the transaction, as much as 10% of the selling price, which may not be reflected in the sale price. ... more
