I would suggest that you consult with the Maricopa County Environmental Service and ask them;
They may want their first back!

Next, you should talk to a Pool Company; I would bet that you will have to drain the pool, clean the filters and start over.

Your family will be swimming in that, sucking in the water and dipping their eyes and ears in it;
Do you really want to cut corners here?

Yes, any legal entity can buy property. The LLC should be making the offer if you want to hold title in the name of the LLC.

The cases where I have seen ownership transferred to LLC after closing is when the buyer is getting a loan in their name and then transfer title after closing since the LLC did not qualify for financing. ... more

Actually, you don't need to know the cost of utilities if you don't include utilities as part of the rent. Otherwise, for condos, you should expect HOA fees and property taxes, just like everywhere else. For SFH, be prepared to handle frequent repairs to the exterior siding and roof from heat damage. And, depending on the size of the SFH, your A/C bill can run you $200-500 a month if you're covering utilities. ... more

Hello Babysteps. All of your questions are great ones. You need to work with an Agent who has experience because the Phoenix market is very competitive right now. Prices are going up an average of 1% a week, and cash is great, but it is better to leverage your cash so you can do more with it. Call me, I have been in the business for many years, I work with investors on both buying and selling side and I work with amazing lenders as well. I also am an investor so I have been on both sides of the transaction.
Hope to hear from you soon.
AJ Stewart

However, it is important that you partner with experience.

Currently their are several homes in the Maryvale area available for purchase, ranging from $14,000 - $150,000. Please call us. Combined experience we have over 30 years experience with expertise with investment homes. Our website would also be helpful for information. Please give us the opportunity to work on your belf.

The Trustee Sale is near the end of the foreclosure process, it is when the property is taken back by the lender or sold to another party.

Depending on your lease etc you may or may not have rights to stay. I would contact the property manager for the property you are living in and or reach out to an attorney. ... more
