Rick Cypher with !st Call Home Inspections is great!

There is always two inspectors on every job and if for some reason you don't buy that house, your next inspection is free!


I just used him last month.

Why are you looking for these pictures? Are they of your home? In most cases once a picture is posted to an MLS service they become property of that MLS and an agent can be fined for using pictures that are not their own. If you have the address do a google search you will probably find the pictures online. ... more

They need guidance. They need to understand that they will be forced into foreclosure which is far worse than a short sale.

Phil Rotondo answered:
With a cash offer, in most instances, the contract is not contingent on:
1. Financing, which could take 30-45 days depending on the type of mortgage
2. An appraisal of the property.
3. An inspection or survey
4. Insurance
The buyer can, of course, obtain items #2, #3, and #4; but on a cash deal, it's optional. On a financing deal, they're not.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

The listing has them down as $7000. This may not be the exact number, but should be very close. Please let me know if you would like to see it! Have a great day!
