bz...I don't think there is such a thing as "Normal" square footage. You could get an average, but even in a specific area, unless all the houses are cookie-cutter, you're going to have variation. And as you move from area to area the variation gets much greater. Best of luck in your home buying adventure...Jim ... more

It is always best to have representation from a REALTOR acting as your Buyer's agent. All questions relating to the transaction, including your questions, would be answered by the agent representing you.
Are you currently working with an agent? If not, please feel free to call or email me at anytime.

Best Regards,

Yes, it should be. As long as it is under a roof it should be included. Lets say you have a 1500 square foot house (like me). That is the TOTAL square footage of my house, including my garage and my porch. So overall, a screened in porch should be included in a houses TOTAL square footage ... more

Tim Moore answered:
Why would you think you get a free ride and a free lunch? You agreed to pay rent, the rental is there and so you should pay rent. Why do people feel they get to skip rent payments because the owner is having problems?? I don't get it, it's just not right and I think you know it and you are hoping someone says you're right. Well you aren't. ... more

It's up to whoever is paying for the house to decide who's name goes on the deed. It doesn't matter to the home seller who you want to put on the deed.

Anna M Brocco answered:
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

I'm not sure what you're asking about. Are you trying to buy a house using a bankruptcy tax rule?

If you don't have good credit you can use a CO- signer. Someone with good credit who will sign on a loan with you. You should speak directly with a lender that works with mobile home loans. You also may need the CO-signer to sign the park lease for the lot rent. If you need the name and number of a bank who can help you with a loan, email me directly at Carla@ and I will give you the person we suggest. ... more

Michael Milligan answered:
You must register yourself as a landlord and the property as a rental with the city of wilmington. After that you can decide to manage the property yourself (advertise, interview clients, accept rent payments, etc) or use a property management company. I am a Realtor who would like the opportunity to sell your property (if it isn't currently listed) first before you go that route. But I am also a landlord of several properties and can discuss the potential pitfalls that may be in store as you begin this venture...

You did not link a property, however I believe if you put the address of the property you were viewing into any map program, google maps for instance, you'd be able to tell how far from any beach you wanted it was.
Best of luck.

Jeff Hoover answered:
A short sale is when Seller owes more on their mortgage than the home is worth or the proceeds they will receive at settlement. A good Realtor will work with you and advice you how to proceed in working with your mortgage company even before you list your home to get an idea how you should proceed with the short sale. Some banks are more willing to work with Seller's in short sale situations than others. If your bank proves to be difficult or you have multiple mortgages on your property, it may be better to hire a third party to help you negotiate your short sale on your behalf. These companies typically charge the seller a few hundred dollars and the buyer anywhere from 1% to 3% of the selling price. A short sale negotiation can take from a few days to 6 to 12 months. Today banks are more willing to do a short sale than ever before. If a bank has a choice between a short sale and foreclosure they will choose the short sale in almost every situation.
If you have any questions regarding the short sale process, please contact me to discuss further.

Jeffrey Hoover, Realtor

For both short sales and foreclosures its 4 years before being able to qualify to buy. Keep up on all the positive lines of credit and it could be in as little as 3.

If you live the apartments your ok, stay away from the townhomes in the back. My neighbor was dealing drugs out of his place on a daily basis. And as a managment company they are awful. I moved out, gave them plenty of notice, etc. My roommate stayed and found someone else to live with her, two years later when those two decided to violate their lease, they came after me, and had me served with a suponea accusing me of failing to pay rent. Thank god I had saved all my documentation! I had to reproduce everything including the signature of the woman who was the office manager at the time... I'll never go back. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
You've uncovered a very secret operation:
On one side of the street, we have an alternating group of burglers,
while on the other side of the street, we have rotating Realtors, all in black, keeping surveilance on the burglers.
No one knew about this!
Now you went and blew it!
