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.

Farheen,

If the listing agent is showing the premises and not allowing other agents to show it (nor allowing you to have your own representation), the listing agent is in violation of MLS Rules and certainly not conducting herself in a legal or morally acceptable manner.

As a Realtor, I would file a complaint with the Multiple Listing Service and local board of Realtors against this person. She is obviously only interested in getting the deal for herself and is certainly NOT working in the best interest of her client.

I would also let the stratus agent know what you encountered. He should be informed of the improper behavior of the listing agent.

This kind of behavior is appalling!

So curious if you don't trust the site why are you using it. You need to find a local Realtor who can help you find homes that are currently for sale. I get clients all the time who ask about this or that home they saw on some website and 99% of the time they are not available. A Realtor has access to the most current informtion. ... more

Depends...keep in mind that each short sale is unique; the lenght of time depends on such factors as the lender, the number of liens involved, who is negotiating the sale on behalf of the seller, was all the seller required necessary paperwork submitted to the lender on a timely fashion, etc. ... more

Hi. It all depends on the price and layout. An existing home is sure cheaper and if the layout is, let's say 3 over 3, most likely it would have the same income potential, talking about similar homes in similar areas. While a new home may have $3000 of monthly mortgage minus $3000 of rental income an existing home can have $2600 of monthly mortgage minus $3000 of rental income. And that's a positive balance right there. In Queens, NY you can get an exact deal like the one o just gave you EASILY. Please message me if you have any other question. ;) ... more

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

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!

I would just look up local contractors on yelp or Angie's list, get people's feedback, also keep in mind it's better to pay a little more for quality work.

This question can best be answered by your agent, and or your attorney, consider a consultation. Keep in mind that without an executed contract, signed by all parties, and deposit money is exchanged, accepted offers don't really mean anything; the seller is still free to do as he/she wishes if other offers come into play.... ... more
