When should I consult my sellers to give carpet allowance?

"Allowances" never got anyone excited as they enter a home. New carpet and fresh paint do get noticed! I would suggest simply getting the carpets replaced. Shop around and get multiple bids. You will likely find this route to be less expensive.nnMark more...Posted 2 weeks ago

Is rent to own as toxic as it's made out to be?

Hi Vance,nWe get this question often on this forum. Because there are so many "what ifs" in a rent to own contract, they advise you (the Buyer) not to do this. A true rent to own would involve agreeing to a sales price, inspection process, closing more...Posted 3 weeks ago

Is it normal for a real estate agent to charge potential client a showing service fee?

Hi, Willie. As you can see, this is not a typical fee imposed on Buyers from a Buyer's agent. However, Realtors are self-employed and typically can charge any fee they wish (typically at the guidance of their broker). The key is if you agree to do more...Posted 3 weeks ago

If I'm buying a house, Can I save money if I use the same realtor as the seller? Do I have to have my own realtor agent?

Edgar,nI assume you have purchased many homes and understand all the aspects of buying a home correct? You understand the contracts, disclosures, addendums you will be using. You understand how to read a title commitment letter. You have great contacts more...Posted 3 months ago

What is the Estimated Property Tax shown on HAR listings?

They are full tax bills without exemptions. That being said, the listing agent can change it so don't assume anything. I would double check with the county appraisal district and pull up the home's records. You will see the accessed value and the more...Posted 1 year ago

11 months of pre-paid taxes at Closing?!

Hi Keith,nnAlways tricky on new construction and setting up those escrow accounts for taxes. In August, you would need to be putting in 11 months (Jan-Aug is 8 months plus 3-month buffer). So at the end of the year, you would have 12 months of taxes more...Posted 3 months ago

Does a propery sale reset the assessment for taxes?

The answer is maybe, but not automatically. If a Buyer purchases a home and the sales price is lower than the county assessed value, they should protest the value the following year and use their closing statement as evidence. This typically works more...Posted 3 months ago

Problems With Using Price Per Square Foot to Determine Price

Hello Terry,nnThe comparable sales and their dollar per square foot is simply a starting point. You must adjust for many other items to get to a final sale price for a home. Some common items that can swing the dollar per square foot number include more...Posted 1 month ago

Is there a document used to confirm a lease home does not have mold?

Hello Mustafa,nnThere is no form. You may ask if the Landlord has had, or knows about, mold in the home. Your client can always call an insurance agent and see if they can review the C.L.U.E. report for your client. This report, shared by insurance more...Posted 1 month ago

Repair request prior to Inspection

Hi Terry,nIf you see something viewing the home that is obviously going to come up, then ask for it. Pg 4, 7D on the earnest money contract allows the Buyer to accept the property "As Is" or "With Repairs". I don't think it will put your client in more...Posted 1 month ago
