To make an offer on a property, you should be represented by a Buyer’s Agent. The Buyer’s Agent will work on your behalf throughout the transaction. This is very important since the Listing Agent represents the seller.

The seller of the property will want to make sure that you are qualified to purchase the property should your offer be accepted. Working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at www.rodneymason.com.

Hey Maryann!

So I'm sure you're already in the area and this is way too late. But I did want to at least reply to your question. I did a quick search on the MLS for a 3/2 rental in the Lillian/ Elberta area with no luck. But to be honest, the MLS does carry some rentals but there are a lot of others out there. I would check with Belau Management or Century 21/ Meyer long term rentals for more options. I hope this helps and if I can answer any other questions you may have then feel free to ask!

Sounds like you talked to the wrong insurance agent.

Ask your Realtor for some recommendations.

I don't know specifically about your area, but it's true that there can be some horror stories. The worst situation--and this goes house by house--is when a house is uninsurable because of the number of claims by the previous owner. So you could have two side-by-side identical homes. One owner has made repeated claims and the other hasn't. It could turn out that the one house is uninsurable, while the other one qualifies at a nice, low rate.

There are also issues dealing with flood plains, coastal areas, etc. That would affect all the nearby houses.

Finally, of course, there are variations based on all sorts of factor pertaining to the house--size, proximity to a fire station and a fire hydraunt, type of construction, age, etc. But you already know that. Those, though, shouldn't produce horror stories, just some variation in rates.

So, again, ask your Realtor to recommend an insurance agent who can help you. That should do it. If it doesn't, you can always ask to see the seller's insurance policy. It might not be quite the coverage you'd be looking for (the deductibles might be different, for instance), but it would at least give you a ballpark idea.

Hope that helps.
