To start a property management company, you should get your real estate license first. There are many specific laws regarding security deposits and other aspects of property management. We have a fellow in our office who only does property management. He gets quite a bit of referral business from us (real estate agents) and does a great job. He basically meets with the clients, gives a rent recommendation, charges a sign up fee ($350-500) and then advertises the property to rent. Once he gets a renter in, he gets 15% of the rental income each month. He advises the owners when repairs are needed and coordinates with service people to handle the work. Hope this helps. ... more

Call up a title representative. They are happy to work with individual homeowners.

Land America Lawyers Title is one of the biggest and still in business!

Good luck

First, I'm sorry to hear of your circumstances. The first thing you should do is to document what repairs your home needs, and if you do have photos that would help.
I am assuming what you meant to say in your question is that your Assessed Value (for taxes) is 169,900. But that the new appraised value is $83,000. You will want to make a copy of your appraisal and the comparable homes that the appraiser used to determine your value.
Contact the West Allis Appraiser, and make an appointment to bring them your documentation.

They will then most likely make an appointment to come view your home, and start the review of your assessed value.
It's definitely worth a try. I had 6 Buyers last year successfully contest their assessments and get their taxes lowered.
Here's the link to the West Allis Assessor's Office:
All the Best to You!

Buyer has been approved for what? a loan or did the seller sign the offer to purchase - meaning is there an actual offer that has been accepted on the home?

Unfortanately it could be no, you will need to review and home owners association rules or regulations you should have received when you purchased the house. This will outline what their duties are. SOmetime sthe only way to take control is to first speak up at a monthly meeting or take over by running for president or an officer position in the HOA. ... more
