Do you need to live there before you sell it? No.

Are you looking to sell your current investment property and buy another investment property? If so, look up 1031 exchange and talk to a 1031 exchange company BEFORE you sell.

If you are thinking of selling it and buying a home that you will live in, talk to your tax professional about repercussions.

Sounds like you haven't bought this house yet? So ask yourself, is it deterring you from wanting to purchase it? Depending on the neighborhood those can be a common occurance so anyone looking to live in those areas "shouldn't" have a problem with them but I'm sure there are some people who would prefer not to have that easement on their property. ... more

Take your CC&R's (Covenants, Conditions & RESTRICTIONS) to the HOA board and ask for clarification. None of us know what your cc&r's or hoa rules state.

I like to have my clients get an inspection about 10 or 11 months after you move in. This way, if anything comes up, you'll still be under warranty and can go back to the builder with a list of items they need to correct. For the walk through, that really the time for inspection issues. It's usually an opportunity to "blue tape" things that they can fix easily (cosmetic issues usually). ... more

What are you trying to accomplish? Are you trying to keep the home or trying to sell it? Do you currently owe more than the home is worth?

Hello Jesslacanlale, they have a website and listings but I am not familiar with their ratings but did not find any complaints online. You should study RENT vs BUY listings as you may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses and pay about the same as rent with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Their listings start from $1,000 for 1bd 1ba apt and the purchase start from 63k for 2bd 1ba condo. You may buy with less than first, last and security of any rental and pay less than rent in Sacramento and neighboring cities.

Have someone come out to provide an estimate of the cost to repair your sewer pipes and to cut the roots of the tree to the property line. Then sue your neighbor.

Pretty straightforward. ... more
