Too late for that. You should have done your research before starting the company.

And focus on what you want to accomplish. It's great that you want to do your part to save the earth. But if you've started a company, your focus should be on making that company successful. You do that by meeting (and exceeding) customer needs. You don't do that with a secondary agenda. ... more

Hi Keith,

If you have been in your house for 11 years you should have some decent equity in it so you may not want to go the route of selling to investors only. It is true it is not a good market for selling right now but if you sell to an investor you will not get anywhere near what you probably want to sell your house for. Also, please DO NOT contact anyone that has a sign on a post that is offering to buy your house for cash. They are not out for YOUR best interests. If you can it is best to consult with a realtor and receive professional advice on the marketable value of your home and then what you will need to do in order to buy another home. If you would like some help feel free to give me a call. Thanks! ... more

Bill Eckler answered:

It sounds like you have had it with your rental experience. Consider treating this as two different problems..First, do you want to continue with rentals. Secondly, you need a new roof....

Regardless of whether or not you decide to remain with your rental initiative or move on, the fact remains, that the roof needs to be replaced. It's likely that a home inspection for any perspective buyer will reveal that a new roof is in order.

It may be time to be in touch with several roofing contractors for evaluations and estimates and keep in mind that because you have had one bad rental experience doesn't mean all the rest will be the same.

Good luck,

Hi Tom,

Are you talking about closing costs? It depends on your loan....the best thing is to talk to your lender who can give you a better answer on this.

Donna Skaarer answered:
Who is your mortgage company? Have discussed a loan modification with them to lower your note? If the mortgage company took TARP funds last year, they are obligatedby law to work with you if you ask. Yu can also try a short sale, where you sell the house for less than you owe, but the mortgagecompany has to work with you. It canbe a long process, but it saves you from a foreclosure. I can help you and I know some attorneys who do a lot of work with getting mortgage companies to work with you.

The residential and commercial rental markets in Memphis are interesting, and there's quite a bit of investor activity (both foreign and domestic) there.

Did you call the listing agent and asking them why it is still available? Try and get the comparable sales and other listings for a similar house.

Hamza Ibrahim answered:
It all depends on where you would rather be. What price range are you looking for? What area would you like best? How large a home? Bedrooms? If you would like some help in your home search or have any questions let me know. I've found a few maps of eligible and ineligible areas but we need to know more specific information about your options for moving. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Todd Harris answered:
First the contract became binding on the date it was executed by HUD. This is when the 15 day period begins. When did they deliver the contract to your agent? Ultimately, you can ask for an extension to complete the inspection. If your agent is in Memphis, he/she can get the utilities on with the executed contract. The expense of which will be passed along to you.

If I were your agent, I would get the utilites on in my name, get your inspector there the same day or the following and have them off w/n 24 hours of the inspection(s) ending. This can be done in 5 days, assuming the availability of the inspector & appraiser.
