I have a primary home in VA. I need to move out of my primary home in VA to move into my rental since my significant passed away and helped with the payments. I cannot afford the house on my own. I want to rent my primary home for awhile since the market has not gone up alot since the purchase in 2007. So, I was planning on moving back to my townhouse to make it my primary for awhile as my younger son has two more years of hight school and then wants to go to community college for two years. I am 54 years old and looking at what my options should be to sell my properties to be able to use for retirement as thinking of moving to North Carolina for my retirement home. I need to know how to go about selling the properties (except for South Carolina...this is my beach home that I would like to keep). I don't know what the tax implication would be. I was considering selling my other rental property in VA to a 1341 like kind exchange and purchasing a rental home in North Carolina and using this home as the home I would eventually move to when ready to retire. Please let me know if this makes sense and what options I should be thinking of doing.<br/><br/>Thanks,<br/>Debbie<br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 04 Aug 2014 15:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Concerning-rental-properties-and-primary-home-investing-and-tax-implications/552997/ 2014-08-04T15:32:00Z How do I take over lease option? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-take-over-lease-option/555896/ A friend of mine wants to move out 3 months before her lease option is up.<br/>How do I take over that lease option in a way that would help the both of us?<br \><br \>1 reply Thu, 21 Aug 2014 22:54:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-take-over-lease-option/555896/ 2014-08-21T22:54:00Z New home with dryer vent issue. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/New-home-with-dryer-vent-issue/400389/ I have bought home 7 months ago.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; A month ago we noticed some birds in the dryer vent.&nbsp; we have called builder about this.&nbsp;&nbsp; Builder asked us to call pest control and remove the birds.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; we had done exactly like builder said.&nbsp;&nbsp; After few days, birds had come again.&nbsp;&nbsp; We had removed them again.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Now, they have come again.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; So, we have contacted builder fix this as birds keep comming.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Builder is saying he can't do anything about.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; He is asking us to use the bird guard but it needs to be cleaned for every three months as per the fire safety standards.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I can do this if the dryer vent is accessable but the dryer vent is located in the second floor and I can't access it.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I am asking builder to put dryer vent accessable but he is refusing to do that and keep saying we can't do anything about it.&nbsp;&nbsp; Should I live like this or do I have to do anything about it.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Could anybody suggest me what should I do about this.<br/><br/>Thanks in Advance...&nbsp;<br \><br \>6 replies Wed, 25 May 2011 03:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/New-home-with-dryer-vent-issue/400389/ 2011-05-25T03:24:00Z How do I change my zestimate value on my home on zillow? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-change-my-zestimate-value-on-my-home-on-zillow/434797/ 9 replies Sun, 11 Mar 2012 20:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-change-my-zestimate-value-on-my-home-on-zillow/434797/ 2012-03-11T20:21:00Z Where to start to repair credit? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-to-start-to-repair-credit/550073/ Me and my husband filed bankruptcy.

We expect to live in it for up to 5 more years before selling and moving. We're in a starter community (first homes) , so we want the baths to look nice and have easy upkeep. I really like the look of the newest pre-fab surrounds I've seen, and I think they'd be easier to clean and maintain. But will they adversely affect the desirability of our house for a first-time home buyer?
