Anna M Brocco answered:
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. Keep in mind that real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. ... more

Finding a home to rent may be less stressful than you think.

We would be happy to provide you with a FREE service called Listing Book. Listing Book provides every property listed with the Multiple Listing Service.

We will set up an account that you will then own. Simply enter your search criteria and everything that matches your search will be delivered to your account.

If a property that is over your price limit is reduced into your range, you will be immediately notified.
When new properties are listed on the Multiple Listing Service that meet your search requirements, you will be immediately notified.

This service is free to you and does not obligate you to me or any other Realtor; you get to pick with whom you wish to work.

The minimal information we need to get you started is your full name, email address and $ maximum. You will control the rest.

Tim Moore answered:
Why would you want to contact a renter about a rental? Contact the owner or landlord or the rental agent. If they don't return the call (and call don't email) then it is probably rented already. Many rentals online are VERY old and just don't get removed. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
She should call the police.

If he's not on the lease, he's not a tenant, and thus can't be evicted. But if your sister wants the guy to leave and he won't, then he's trespassing.

Hope that helps. ... more

It's really all a matter of personal preferences, therefore purchase the property that you'll enjoy the most and know you'll be happiest calling it your home....

Ron Thomas answered:
The wording is; the Seller has to disclose any material fact which impacts the value of the house.
If the Seller lived in the house, it would be taken for granted that they knew or whitnessed almost everything.
If it came out later, that there was an Inspection, that they had access to, it would be problematic.

Why not simply consider working with an agent of your own; for available area properties check www.mlsli.com. Be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

The local police department can better answer the question, consider a call/visit; you can also search archived print media, ask a neighbor(s), etc.

Javier Meneses answered:
Well the grants that are available for first time homebuyers, are for those who are purchasing a primary residence. If you're looking to purchase an investment property, no grants are available for you, even if you are a first time homebuyer.

If you are purchasing your own home and you'll be living in, what you can also do is buy a 1-4 family house where you can occupy one of the units and rent the others. Please feel free to contact me and I can send you the grants that are available to you, which by the way, can vary by the townships or counties you're looking to buy in.

I also want to advise that you should meet with a Loan Officer who is experienced with some of the grants out there. I'm always available to meet in one of our Queens offices to pre-approve you and discuss your options. Good luck!

Your loan officer can better advise as to the best loan option for you after he/she has reviewed your overall financials. FHA loans cannot be used for co-op purchases, and it excludes some condos. ... more
