I have not been through the home you mention but, to answer your question, yes, mold can kill someone, but the incidence is extremely rare. there are hundreds of types of mold and only a handful are toxic. While the health effects of mold shouldn't be ignored, most mold can be effectively mitigated. ... more

You certainly can let your attorney go, but the reality is that the attorney only knows what you and your realtor tell him. Your realtor is the one who made the error and your attorney is going to fix it for you, to protect your interests. That is their job. You need to trust your attorney and your realtor. If you do not, then you need to find people that you do trust, someone that earns your trust and respect.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Hi Kiki
Most builders will honor your request to be represented by an agent if you mention it before you go there. Call the sales office and lay out the scenario, most often they are happy to have a represented buyer and will not exclude your agent of choice if you are upfront about it. As for getting pre-approved, talk to a lender and they can run your numbers, credit scores, job history, debt to income ratios, etc. No reason to look at a property if you are not qualifying for a mortgage in these tough underwriting lender days.

If you like my answer, best answer me and a thunbs up, Thanks!!

This is a great question! The best thing to do is take your question to the professional. Who will know the best about your options but a good loan officer. In your case a loan officer that offers VA loans. The great thing here is the 1st person you talk before going on your home purchase hunt is a loan officer. They will pull your credit and parents statistics. Then they will give you your pre-approval letter which you will need to accompany any offers you make in the future. This would be a great time to ask the loan officer about the cosign.
Call me if you want some assistance and recommendation on a loan officer and home hunt questions. Oh ya this 1st meet service the loan officer gives and pre- approval letter work is all FREE. There will be no charges unless you purchase a house. So Good Luck and Happy Home shopping

Yes, but they also usually believe in UFO's, the loch ness monster, and Elvis was seen at a local market 3 weeks ago looking like he did in 1973.

Why not visit the school or contact the district directly--ask about test scores, special programs, etc. As far as safety information is concerned, your best source is the local police department--do some of your own homework to see if your level comfort can be reached--you'll thank yourself later as you will have heard all the information firsthand. ... more
