By allowing people who would not undernormal circumstances ever been able to qualify for a loan getting a loan with little or no proof of true income. The bar must stay somewhere in the middle never to either extrmes and we have seen both of those in the past several years to where now more stable borrowers.
So you're having foundation repair and they'll discount their work if they don't have to warranty it? I would run, run fast, get a new company ASAP. Any company that does not warranty thier work would not be a company repairing things for me and not a company I would recommend to any of my clients.... more

Whoever you have been speaking with you should maybe stop. Buying a bank owned home is not hard or impossible, in fact it is pretty straight forward. Once the bank owns it and decides to list it there is not a lot of difference in buying in or Mr Jone's house. REO is a bank owned home, the bank now owns it after the foreclosure is over and they can sell it and lenders will give you a loan to buy it. You just need to speak with a lender to see if you can get a loan and then speak with a Realtor who will guide you on the way to do it.
Buying a short sale is a royal pain sometimes, but bank owned can be easy.... more

It really depends on the age, condition, and finish out of the condo, but you can expect to pay somewhere around $200-$225 per square foot average. I do have a new listing that is not yet on the market that might be just what you are looking for. Feel free to contact me and I will be happy to go over the details.

It entirely depends on the lease you signed when you moved in. Read your lease to find out. Generally, most leases charge an initial late fee after a certain number of days of delinquency, usually three to five. On top of that, they charge a daily fee for each day the rent is late, which you could call "interest" if you wish. In any event, the controlling document is your lease and it should spell out the specifics of delinquency penalties.

There's no rule that says you have to, but everyone does. In the event that someone came along and claimed an interest in your property you could have to defend yours in court and that could get expensive. Other issues include encroachments, liens and easements. Having it is a good idea.
You can also run into trouble getting financing, or selling if the next buyer can't get financing. Lenders want to see a clean chain of title and by breaking that you may be asking for trouble.
The custom in Texas is that the seller pays for the title insurance, so in a sense it doesn't come out of your pocket - it's just built into the price.
Feel free to contact me if you have other questions or would like help making a purchase.

Some townhomes are indeed built on pier & beam foundations. However, many of the newer townhomes & condos I've seen recently are built on a slab. It may depend on the age of the community, topography and other factors. Are you looking at a particular area or community? Please let me know if I can help you further.
