Tristam Bielecki answered:
Do fireplaces increase or decrease a home value? What do buyers think about gel or electric fireplaces instead of the traditional wood burning or gas?

HUD-1 on rental property sold became incorrect & I'm owed money for 3 days of rent. Cash deal. No bank involved. How can I get my money? And when?
Hi Ngiun

Trust you had a title company involved or a real estate attorney.

Work with them.

Weigh the costs and benefits, otherwise pass.

Good luck.
