It will have a huge impact when you try to re-sell. Lots without premiums are the WORST lots in the subdivision. Don't do it! Also, their are a lot of "hidden" expenses when you buy from a builder. Things like window coverings, fences, landscaping, etc. add up big time after you close. The bad news is when you go to sell, you won't a dime back from these improvements, as they are expected on a resale home. You might want to shop newer resale homes before stepping into a new one. Let me know if I can help further. Julie Montgomery, RE/MAX Masters, Inc. 303-906-3150 ... more

ISanchez419,

The Fairways at Green Valley Ranch seem to be a good buy at this time. GVR is a great community that i lived in for 8 years starting in 2001. It is a quiet, diverse golf course community that is just 10 minutes from Park Hill in Denver. I would be glad to talk to you more about the new 55 and older community there. The best idea would be to meet me there and I can represent you as you check out the options to see who wel it will work for you in your particular situation. The link to the Fairways community is here - http://bit.ly/yoV66e . I am experienced in the purchase of new homes at GVR before and purchased a new home from them myself as well.

I would rent for six months to a year until you get to know the area and figure out what neighborhood you'd like to live in.

Stuart Dobson answered:
Because currently a low appraisal value is one of the biggest problems to getting a home sold. If the seller accepts a contract, pulls the home from the 'active' market, and then a low appraisal comes in and they either have to lower the price, or put the home back on the market, they seller either just lost time or money or both. ... more

You need to call your lender and speak with them, they all handle it different. Some might give cash for keys and work with you if it was sold at public trustee auction you need to deal with the Buyer they can not take the possession for 8 business days from date of sale. ... more

Ben Gearhart answered:
A capital gain or loss is generally a one-time transaction. Therefore, it should not usually be considered as either a gain or a loss in determining the income. However, if the borrower’s business has a constant turnover of assets that produces regular gains and losses, the capital gain or loss may be considered. (An example of this is the person who buys old houses, remodels them and sells them for profit.) If the borrower has operated in this manner over a period of time, the lender may develop an average of the past two years’ gains or losses for consideration in the income calculation. If this source represents a substantial portion of the borrower’s income, the underwriter should review tax returns for at least the last three years to get an accurate picture of the average earnings from this source. For example, an asset sold during the year might be an income- producing asset, which could result in a reduction in future income after the sale.


Please let me know if you have further questions. You can reach me at 303-910-7015 or ben@mac5m.com.

Thank you!

Hello Ger-mike,
I wish the authorities would spring a trap on people for this kind of thing. But what we expect these days? Criminals stay up all night thinking of how they can rip people off. The thing consumers and landlords can do is be vigilant.

Thanks for keeping an eye on your listing.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Where was the ad posted? This is a very common scam on Craig's List. You need to let the administrators of the website know and flag the post as a scam of spam or inappropriate. Unfortunately this happens all the time, especially with homes that are for sale. It's some group of foreign con artists. They steal the realtors' photos and then post the property for rent on Craig's List saying they have been transferred out of the country for their job or they are missionaries to some foreign land and to fill out this application and send your first month's rent and security deposit by wire transfer to an off shore bank. What is even more unbelievable is that people do it! I have heard stories of people showing up with a lease and a moving van only to find out they have been had and now they have nowhere to live and no money.

Please, do us all a favor and report this to the administrators of the website.
