Good Afternoon Tim,

I have experience working with both new and experienced investors.

I have a couple of ideas that may work out for you as a starter package but first I need to know a bit more about what your plans, needs and goals are.

Feel free to contact me when you have a moment and we can start the discussion...

I was getting them in my house, also. I use Diatomaceous earth. Use it heavily around base of house. I also pour it across my doorways at night and in the well of my windows.

Another thing I found for any bugs is Cedarwood (essential) Oil or GreenBug Spray (8 gallons from a qt of concentrate). It can even be sprayed by food. Both these products are safe around kids and animals)

As for the scorpions,. If you are chicken, like me. Before I found these products I would spray them, directly, with ant spray but found that if I took my eye off of it, it was gone. Then I would spray it and place a cup over it until it died. It took three days.

It is super common for old listing info to remain available on the internet until a new listing is up. If your home was just listed, there's a great chance Trulia hasn't refreshed its data yet to write over the old info. I find this to be one of the slowest to update real estate websites out there.

What to do? Pretty much just wait until tomorrow.

Whitney ranch is a nice clean area. Most homes are in walking distance to the near by schools. I was born and raised in the city, So I was the 2 class of students to go the Green Valley high school which is the high school for Whitney ranch. Not only am I very familiar with the area, my Husband is one of the mailmen to deliver in Whitney ranch. It is also close to shopping, malls and local casino and freeways.
Hope this helps

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello,

You would have to look up a flat fee listing service to get your home on Trulia. For sale by owner (FSBO) can seem like a money saver at first. But there are a lot of dangers with doing so. There’s a huge liability issue, and roughly 30% of FSBO homes even get sold. Usually your home would get a lower offer than what you list it for, defeating the purpose of saving money by doing FSBO.

The best way to sell your home fast and at a desired price is to work with a top performing agent.

We created UpNest, http://www.upnest.com, for sellers looking to work with a great agent and save money at the same time. With our online marketplace, home sellers can confidentially submit their homes, and multiple top local agents will compete to obtain your listing. Some agents lower their commission rates to stand out, and every agent that submits a proposal is an experienced agent, so it's not the same as working with a low grade discount brokerage.

Good luck selling!

Hi Shelly,

I as well checked MLS and the home shows as available. Let me know if you would like to take a look at the house and I will contact the listing agent to schedule a showing.

You picked a great street by the way. I own a few properties right around the corner. Great area.

Between my husband and myself we own multiple rental properties throughout Las Vegas and Henderson NV. We also manage quite a few as well.

We have an on staff tax attorney who can answer questions regarding LLC and tax issues and a venture capitalist who adds his opinion on investment strategy, price of property and return.

We would love to discuss your potential investment venture with you.

Feel free to call me and I will be happy to meet with you and discuss further.

Respectfully,

answered:
I manage a home that had a scorpion infestation. It took years to get rid of them. None of the over the counter chemicals and or poisons were affective.

Here is what we did to get rid of the problem and it worked like a charm.

Step 1. Buy glue traps
Step 2. Buy black light
step 3. buy handheld propane torch

Set the glue traps throughout the perimeter of your home. This catches the scorpions. Remember females carry their young on their backs. Hundreds and hundreds of them.

Use the black lite to search for them in the evenings. Torch them on the spot. this ensures you burn all of the young on the females backs. It takes about a month of diligent work to get it done but itll work.

Let me know if you have any questions and I can discuss further.

answered:
One can easily argue that a pool that is filled with water is just as much of a liability issue. As a matter of fact a pull that is full maybe more of a liability issue than one that is empty.

It is a very easy argument to make. If the underwriter has a problem with it have him email you a copy of his policy and or guidelines that specifically address an empty pool. As an UNDERWRITER he deals specifically with policies of insurance and or mortgage guidelines. His title by definition means he underwrites, therefore an empty pool must be specifically addressed in his policies of insurance and or mortgage guidelines. If they are not than he can not require. He can only require a pool be filled if it is in his written, written, written guidelines.


I hope this helps. Your realtor should be doing this for you.

I hope this helps. Should you need assistance in the future please let me know.

Thanks

Chad Roberts answered:
Another thought, most rental companies provide a thorough background of the tenant for the landlord/home owner. Credit scores, a criminal background check, and proof of financial stability are the backbone of this process. If your credit scores negate your ability to rent via this facet, you could always look other sites, such as VRBO, Home Away, etc. With those sites, you can often deal with the home owner directly.

This is not uncommon but very avoidable. The "surprise" might not have occurred had someone contacted the HOA. In all my transactions for my clients that are in HOA's I write up in the contract that we want to have all HOA documents provided, including, but not limited to: Yearly meetings, reserve studies, etc. I used to have to write that into our Sales Agreement, but recently our association which provides our real estate forms created an entirely new on for condos and it includes all this good stuff. ... more
