In many cases, the rights to not convey to a new owner. It is up to the person who holds those, whether or not they wish to convey all or part of the rights. However in most cases, you will find that is not the case. In very rare cases. ... more

Of course you can and as long as it's properly installed it will work great at keeping YOUR dog ON your property. What doesn't exist is an invisible fence that will keep other animals or people OUT of your yard or away from your dog. If you have a dog or a pool or some other hazard, you should really also have a physical fence. But out in the country with acres of yard or pasture, no, you wouldn't "have" to put up a real fence unless you are also keeping livestock or cattle. You have a duty to prevent your livestock from being a hazard or causing damage to others' property (eating their landscaping, digging up yards, etc.) So check with your code enforcement area which could be the county or city depending on your location and your HOA rules.

Now this is assuming that: your home is not covered by HOA rules that require an actual fence for the back yard. That would override any invisible fence you want to have. You can still have one but you'd also need a board fence. Most HOA's restrict the type of fence you can put up, ie. no chain link. And I'm not aware of any HOA's in the area that require a front yard fence and that's often the most common location for an invisible fence - you want to keep the dog in the front yard with you without putting up an actual fence.

But, again, there isn't a fence that will keep others out that's invisible.

Bryan-College Station is a Senior friendly community and we have quite a few neighbors that have zero lot patio homes for both rent and sale. Some of the homes are within larger communities such as Pebble Creek, Castlegate and Woodland Hills. If you are looking for an older patio home there are many neighborhoods available.

If you would like to talk by phone please don't hesitate to contact me at 979.229.8463 or via email

It takes time. They likely don't work weekends. I often find it takes a week or 10 days to sign.

Buying foreclosures takes patience.

Just make sure your agent follows up, make sure the listing agent got the offer and checks status every other day or so.

Good luck.....interesting too when you need more time, they are not as forgiving, they want everything signed yesterday when they need something.

Your rights are spelled out in the contract that you signed. No less, no more.. There's not a thing you can do about your perception that the Seller's Agent is unpleasant.

Did you close yet? Usually buyers do a final walk thru prior to closing. If you just did the walk thru and found these issues but have not closed you need to have your buyers agent get with the listing agent to correct things prior to closing. ... more

Have him evicted for trespassing?? No, seriously-- I don't know what the California laws are or what the agreement was when you closed on the property. Best to consult with an attorney... contact your real estate agent (if you have one) and he/she can recommend an attorney.

Best of luck,

Blake Baxter answered:
I would speak with a lender at your earliest convenience. You might as well find out on the front end what you can qualify for and if there will be any unanticipated roadblocks, so that you can address those concerns now.

I would look at houses online now to get a feel for prices in the market, but would wait until early May to start talking with agents about looking at houses. Also, it may be a good idea to visit open houses on the weekends to speak with agents about your market.

Lauralynn your contract should have a date specified that you had to complete your inspection and how long teh seller has to offer. If it does not, you should have put a date in your request for repairs as well as a copy of teh report, estimates and picture of damage to speed things up. the bottomline is without a deadline, you can wait for ever, you need your agent to speak with teh listing agent twice a day to get answer. ... more

We drive by a beautiful old Victorian or Crafsman house and my wife swoons, "I would love to have that!"

All I can think, is the work every night and weekend for the next five years to make it nice.
We have friends who bought a 100 year old house and have been working for 8 years to make it like-new again. He is doing all the woodwork and it is georgeous!! Railing and turnings hand-turned on a lathe, hardwood floors that he had to remove 1/4" to get below the damage and nails.

I've done both, new and old, enjoy and remodel, and my favorite is; MY FAVORITE!

You gots to do your thing, not mine.
