Hi Joanna,

Dogs of any size aren't permitted in this complex. I'd be glad to find you a pet-friendly complex.

I can put some feelers out for you. Think outside the box, for a short term rental a house that is or on the verge of foreclosure might be ideal

Connie Pereira answered:
In college areas, you should expect to see more rentals become available between the months of May and August. Landlords typically prefer a minimum of a one year lease. Therefore, if a student moves into a place in August when the school year starts, he or she could expect to stay there till the following August, and not May. ... more

Trulia does not, but because it is only a platform to post and advertise ads for listings whether they be for sale or for rent. You should either hire a buyer broker who can help you or contact a local agent who specializes with rentals who can assist you. ... more

There are many differences between having a single family house vs a condo. For many a condo is a great alternative as all of the exterior landscaping is taken care of so you dont have to spend your day off mowing trimming bushes raking leaves and making everything nice. In addition in the winter someone else takes care of clearing the sidewalks and parking lots from snow. As a general rule in addition exterior maitnenance is taken care of by the condo association. The limitations to a condo are that usually there are association rules that must be followed. These do vary by association. A home on the other hand(unless it is in certain subdivisions) does not have any rules that follow it. However the homeowner is responsible for all maintenance. Either are great choices it depends on what your current lifestyle is and what would be best suited for you. My partener and I have over 30 years of guiding people through the process and educating them so that they can make the decision that works out best for them! If you would like to set up a time to meet and go over these in person we would be happy to go over all of these details with you and answer all of your questions and help to educate you as well as guide you to the decision that works best for you!

Ted Kostzewski answered:
There is not a sales tax per se. The conveyance taxes ae there as you know. The only other thing you must be aware of is the possibility of a capital gains tax, which is dependent upon whether or not the home you are selling is your primary residence, how long you have lived there and whether or not your profit exceeds the capital gains limits. Best to talk with your accountant or attorney in terms of eligibility on this one. ... more

Greg Hanner answered:
Hi Shoehoard,

Selling fees are fairly straight forward and here are the three primary expenses.

1. Broker fees - Listing your home with a REALTOR (not all agents are REALTORS) will cover marketing the home, provide you with someone working with your interests being put first, a skilled negotiator and assistance through the minefield of home inspections and helping with Buyer's financing being secured. If a Buyer comes with their own agent, the Buyer's agent is normally paid a portion of the listing agents fees that you have in your listing agreement. That makes the Buyer Broker's involvement free to the Buyers in most cases. Listing broker fees are not fixed - they vary and are negotiated between Sellers and their agents. If you list your home by Owner (FISBO), then you'll be paying for print ads, on-line ads, signage, attending showings, dealing with Buyers or their agents if you offer Buyer Broker commissions, negotiating the purchases agreement price/terms, handling appraisal inspections, home inspections, and then attending your closing.

2. Conveyance taxes to the town and state. They are normally 0.75% unless you are in certain towns or your selling price exceeds certain price levels.

3. Attorney fees. Your attorney will prepare the deed and handle paying off your mortgages. You'll get reimbursed for prepaid property taxes and fuel in your home's tanks.

Hope this info helps.

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Best,
Ali, Trulia Voices Community Manager

Please contact me, I am very experienced in short sales, to put in an offer, you only need a minimal initial deposit of $1,000 and while you are waiting for short sale approval which can take 30-90 days, you can still save up for your down payment for FHA.

Jay Cooke answered:
Hi Uma,

As phrased, that is a loaded question. The presence of rock in a basement may deter some possible buyers in the future, all things considered; it's not really an asset. As to health, that is why you have a radon test performed. The results will let you know whether a mitigation system should be installed.

Best,
Jay Cooke
