You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Do you have any money to put down? Good rental history? Contact a local lender or mortgage broker who will go through your financials and credit worthiness with you.

Realtors can't speak on the safety of areas, but you can check with the nearest police precinct on crime stats for the area. Hopefully you'll get some responses from non-realtors! Another option is just talking to neighbors who already live in the area. ... more

It sure is! It is not unusual for a well priced home to receive multiple offers after only a short time on the market.

It depends how long it takes the lender to get the loan ready. The faster you answer their questions and get them documents, the faster it takes. A lender gathers info until they think they have enough and then they submit it to an underwriter for approval. 45-60 days is average. ... more

Rental prices are based mainly on square footage, amenities, and location. It would be very difficult to give you a price but I would say the average range is about 750-1500. I would suggest looking at local rentals on Craig's list to get a better idea. ... more

Charles Rorive answered:

Any easement on a property could be a negative for resale... It all depends on the buyers. Somewhere out there, are buyers that will buy the parcel thinking that the easment and visitors are just fine. These buyers may just take a little longer to find the property than those that say: " Oh no, I can't deal with that..."

Best of luck.

Cynthia Cain answered:
Yes, it is certainly possible. I helped buyers find an "owner financed" home this past fall. I personally bought an investment property years ago this way in "the fan" & also in another state. If a seller owns his home free & clear they may be open to this kind of a sale. The seller needs to see it as an advantage in regards to their tax situation & also feel extremely comfortable & secure with the buyer. I think it is very important for the seller to meet the buyer in person if the seller is even considering this option. A seller who is open to this may only want to do it for a few years with a baloon payment at the end of the mortgage term. This is when you would need to secure conventional financing for the property. At that time if you cannot secure the financing the mortgage holder/seller may be open to renegotiating the loan or they may just decide to keep your deposit & the way the deed is written you may be in default at that time.
I would suggest looking into properties that have been on the market for some time that do not have a mortgage. However, a seller may entertain this regardless as to how long the property has been on the market. Sometimes "owner financing" is an option in the listing agreement & that would be information listed on the multiple listing service. If the latter is not the case then the buyers agent would contact the listing agent to see if "owner financing" might be an option for the seller. The selling agent may just tell the buyers agent to put it in the contract & she/he will present it to the seller. This is a good way to get the ball rolling in the minds of the seller. It may take a little bit of time to check out the advantages of doing this for the seller so everyone must be patient in the process. It is definitely an option & I feel you are going to see more sellers open to this in the Richmond Metro area.
If I can help you facilitate this search I would be happy to do so.
Please feel free to contact me.

Bridget Hodgson answered:
Hi Joe,
This property is a condominium - so yes there would be an association. There would not be an additional HOA for that area of town, as it is not in a development, or closed community. There is an active civic association.
Let me know if you need more information, if I have not answered your question well.
