You could call the agents manager if you question the advice. Can also check with a lawyer to make sure. You dont want to be wrong on the 17 days. We do not have that here in NH.

If you are planning to relocate to Dallas, TX, then I'd be happy to assist you. I used to live in CA and the cost of living is unbearable. So I decided to move to Dallas and it was the best decision for me. We have many major employers moving into the area including the giant Toyota! ... more

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

I would need more details.

There are programs specifically for mobile homes if they are on land.

If your mobile home is on its own land we have a program for that. Rates are only slightly higher than conventional mortgage rates.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me

Susie Kay answered:
Probably not a preferred location by many buyers. However, it depends on you. Can you get the home lower than market price? If so, will that appeal to you?

I just bought my first new home and yes it is a 1980 manufactured home on a large lot in zipcode 91786. The home is over 2,000 square feet, 3 bedrooms and two baths, central a/c and all modern appliances - it's cost $123,000.00. If I was to try and find a house like that here in SoCal I would be looking at $500,000.00+ easily. Mobile/Manufactured home prices are on the rise here in SoCal - because people can't afford a traditional home (especially if they are single). So to say that a mobile/manufactured home never increases in value is ridiculous - here in the L.A. market they have gone up as high as 82% from 2014...... ... more

Short sales are tricky. To pursue the issue you need an attorney.

Susie Kay answered:
Did the contract say that the realtor to pay your wife after her transaction is closed and funded? If that's the case then it will probably be a month before your wife gets paid. The house is likely under contract now but not yet sold (closed and funded). If the contract says your wife to be paid once the service is rendered regardless whether the house is sold then I would bring that realtor to a small claim court. ... more

I would suggest that you hire an attorney to assist you. Everything that you have should be in writing, no verbal agreement.

When the landlord sends that bank to look at all the units from the inside, and takes picture's does that mean the bank is taking the property from the landlord

Kvitali answered:
I do have to say that is not unusual to get multiple offers on a property after it has sat on the market. it happens more than you think.

I am always surprised after a home has been on the market for months to all of a sudden have 2 or 3 buyers come forward at the same time.

But I have been selling real estate for 15 years and it does happen more frequently then you would ever imagine.

Jintown answered:
Worst, is multiple personality sellers whom have house on market, and when you reach their sell number, they decide to not sell.

Why you putting your house on the market when in reality you never wanted to sell it. Already 2 homes like this.

Not to mention the demented over-priced needs tons of work home, where the owner thinks the home is like a lottery ticket. Earning 100% value per 5 years. Meaning if trends of the 80's to know happen again , homes will be 1.5 million in 5 years ? Mostly I see this with baby doomer's.

The whole thing is a pain, not fun what so ever. Unless of course your rich , loaded and can build your own.

Yes, all liens and mortgages would need to be satisfied before clear title can be conveyed.
This includes any back or delinquent taxes. A quick way to expedite a search prior to putting up earnest money would be an online lien and title search.
