Condo Contract Question

If you are using a conventional lender, it is probably not an option to not get title insurance. The lender will probably require that and an appraisal...not to protect you but to protect themselves. I personally would not buy a property without title insurance. Too many things can happen. If you ever sell the property, they will come up at that time...Your friend may not even know about the issues....I would just get the title insurance.

What day of the week and times are best for Open Houses? When is it best to have a Open House after listing it?

I have open houses seven days a week but I generally have the best turnout on Sunday afternoon from 2-5. Sometimes other events or weather do influence the success but generally that\'s the best time. The first Sunday after it\'s listed and any Sunday after that until it sells...Best of luck for a quick sale!

When should I consult my sellers to give carpet allowance?

As several others have said, a carpet allowance is lost. Either reduce the price or preferably replace the carpet with inexpensive neutral carpet prior to listing the property. Fresh paint and flooring will get the biggest bang for the buck when listing a home. Best of luck!

Does anyone have any insight on purchasing an apartment for rental property?

Hi Anthony,\nIt sounds like you are considering a condo to buy and lease out. If you are planning to lease it out as a corporate rental or furnished unit, you should lease with a Realtor that specifically works with corporate rentals. Monthly maintenance fees on condos usually cover exterior building maintenance and insurance of the building and liability and insurance for the common areas. Sometimes water, gas, cable or other utilities are covered but you must look at each community individually and decide if it is a good value based on the price and what the HOA includes in that price. You also want to make sure the HOA has adequate reserves and it well managed. Some are better values than others. If the community has a higher maintenance fee that covers more utilities, it\'s probably more expensive to carry in between tenants. Be sure the community does not prohibit or limit how many units can be rentals if you plan to keep it as an investment property. Houston does have great investment potential but do your homework and be sure get a Realtor that has a lot of experience selling condos. Best of luck!\n

Hello everyone we are moving back to San Antonio in 2 weeks or less and we need help finding something asap. We have excellent backgrounds and we can pay up to $1,600 a month. We have never been evicted but before I married my husband I left a place

For best results you will need to find a Realtor in the area in San Antonio where you would like to lease a home. Realtors in Houston usually specialize in a specific area or areas in Houston and for best results your Realtor should be knowledgeable about the area you are moving. A Houston Realtor could research and refer you to an agent in San Antonio or you could look on Realtor.com and interview agents that list the type of property and the area that you are interested in.\n\nSome landlords may not allow any past broken leases but some will if it has been a few years and you both have good credit otherwise, it should not be too big of a problem.. Most will look at the whole picture and consider income or ability to pay, other rental history, other credit pets and criminal history...or lack of.

Is Harmony really a master planned community??

Harmony is a master planned community. Johnson Development has a proven track record when it comes to planning successful, vibrant communities with great resale values down the road. Sienna Plantation and Riverstone are just two examples of communities developed by Johnson in Fort Bend County. Imperial Sugar Land is also developing into an amazing place to live. Sometimes the process does not happen overnight but they are all very well planned and the final result is a great quality of life and beautiful communities.

what is sellers doesn\'t want to repair house?

Unless the seller agreed to repair the house in writing, on the contract, the seller does not have an obligation to repair anything. The buyer can walk away if they are still in the option period and their earnest money should be returned. That\'s the reason for the option period. I hope that helps.

What is the website to complete an application for a rental property?

There are numerous websites that advise landlords to accept or deny tenants applications. You would have to find out which one from the listing agent or Realtor to make sure you go through the one they require. Good luck!

what form to use for vacant lot listing?

If you are going to have an exclusive right to sell, you would use that listing agreement. Either Residential, Commercial or Farm and Ranch depending on the type of property. If you are listing a residential lot, you would use the same listing agreement as you would use to list a house. They are on Zip Forms. I hope that helps.

How to find out if there is a lien against property

I would suggest purchasing title insurance and have the title company search for liens. If a lien is missed, the title company will insure it up to the purchase price.
