Lising shows as PENDING/EXPIRED. This usually means that the offer is "in the works" and probably will close.

Hello Russ, Don't you love Trulia and the ability to list your home for free? If I were you I would have a rent application at the ready. You probably would want to have the prospective tenant furnish you with a credit report and possibly a background check. Since water and sewer run "with your home" these are utilities you may not be able to put in tenants name and will have to decide how you want to deal with this. Most real estate companies have an "offer to lease" then owner to furnish a final lease acceptable to both both parties. I just secured a 3 year lease for a happy owner who is very happy to have this 3 year lease with a credit worthy tenant so they can further "chew"down the mortgage before they sell. ... more

A partition sale or lawsuit is a pretty complicated matter. I think you should seek legal representation if you haven't done so already.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
In my opinion, yes. Nothing is more likely to derail a short sale or foreclosure purchase than having anyone on the 'team' that does mot understand the process. These purchases can take a long time, they require more paperwork, and if you and your realtor are not prepared for that it can be frustrating and confusing. Last week, during Hurricane Sandy's aftermath, I met a short sale client twice in a parking lot to get paperwork signed, once we had a notary public in tow. Then the buyers' realtor and I arranged to meet, twice, to get signatures from everyone on their side. Unless you have someone who both understands such demands by the bank are not unusual and are willing to comply with those demands cheerfully these transactions can go bad quickly; My advice is to find someone with either the SFR and/or CDPE designations indicating they are the training and experience you need. ... more

Lori Davidson answered:
I suggest you can use a REALTOR to find the renter. The fee is not high, I can make a referral to you if you would like, you can email me if that is what you would like to do. I do suggest a credit check and background check as well, they are inexpensive to do. A realtor can get the rental out there to the public and among other REALTORS. Good luck ... more

Generally I would recommend my finance guy, Bob Wilson, 216-373-7450, anytime, but loans under $40k are hard to find these days (I guess they are not profitable or something)....closing costs can be paid for by the seller if you write the contract that way and the seller accepts....Make sure you have a realtor representing you. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
An FHA loan has nothing to do with being a Veteran:
What you should be concerned about is a VA loan.
The VA picks-and-chooses the eligibity of the Veterans for their loans; maybe serving now will qualify you, and maybe not. It is the same with Medals, and Medical Benefits.
All those who served in Vietnam are now qualified, but there have been a bunch of skip periods since then.
What you can do, to get ready, it to join the Navy Federal Credit Union; you will probably see info about it, when you get to your duty station.
You can also look into the GI Bill for education, and you can take ASAFI courses while you are in.

You are taking an honorable step toward one of the greatest fraternities in America; being a Veteran, and you should be proud.
The BENEFITS will come; just concentrate on one day at time right now.
Thanks for Serving

Not hearing that at all. Here in Northeast, Ohio, home sales and prices are up. The market is on the rise, and we're seeing many getting ready to get their home on the market. Many homes are selling in less than a month. Things are actually increasing and looking up! Good news on the real estate front. ... more

I can not speak to where the lawsuit is for 2222 Detroit, Stonebridge Tower, other than it is still going on. I can say that the 1237 Washington, Stonebridge Plaza is a different type of construction. There have been recent sales in Plaza in which the buyers have obtained home inspections of the units and those inspections have not lead to any concerns about the building or quality of construction. Sales have been good in the building and the buyers seem to be very happy. ... more

Tim Moore answered:
A good suggestion would be to assume that HOA fees will NEVER go down. Most never do, that is because they pay for things like taxes, insurance, maintenance and things like that where the fees also never go down. The only way they are likely to go down is if a service or amenity is removed from what they fee pays. ... more

Alison Giraldo answered:
Typically yes you can. There are always circumstances that may prohibit this such as disrepair of the property. It may not be eligible due to it's condition. I would strongly advise that you seek approval for financing before you buy the house so you will know what "road blocks" you may come up against when attempting to mortgage it later. I would imagine finding out you can not access money to repair a property after you bought it would be a pretty bad thing. Good Luck ... more
