But on 6/9 the seller requested an extension to mid July, and because of time constraints on our current home we told them no, but agreed to close on 6/24. We never received the signed addendum. This is a cash deal. No inspection, no appraisal. Their agent and broker will not return phone calls. What can we do? I am ready to walk away from this house on principal.&nbsp;<br \><br \>10 replies Wed, 17 Jun 2015 22:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Seller-will-not-sign-an-addendum-they-requested-to-extend-COE/591794/ 2015-06-17T22:50:00Z What it ZESTIMATE? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-it-ZESTIMATE/555537/ What it zestimate?

After few months of looking at many things and figuring out what I want and can afford, it came down to 2 specific properties.<br/><br/><div>There are two condos I am torn between.<br/><div>Both of them are 3 br 2 ba, second floor.<br/><div>One is vacant, older (1989), need some repairs and fixing (painting, flooring, plumbing and etc). It has a carport assigned parking and is located in the center of everything (shopping centers), in the gated community. It doesn't have walk in closets in any of the rooms. The neighborhood seems to have many young people. Zillow predicts the price on this one will go up by 6.6% next year.<br/><div>The other one is newer (2006) 5k more expensive, has tenants, that I don't know when they will move out. It has a detached garage. But the community is not gated. Has walk in closets and seems to be more popular if I was selling it (top 10% most viewed in the last 10 days on zillow). I may still need to do some flooring in it. The neighborhood overall seems nicer, more mature people, nicer cars on the parking lot. Zillow predicts the price on this one will go up by 1.1% next year.<br/><div>For me it comes down to: location and price of the first one vs. :newer, garage, walk in closets and easier to sell (just in case).<br/><div>Which one???</div></div></div></div></div></div></div><br \><br \>10 replies Sat, 20 Jun 2015 16:35:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Which-condo-should-I-buy/592165/ 2015-06-20T16:35:00Z What does quality construction #4 mean? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-does-quality-construction-4-mean/589619/ 1 reply Wed, 03 Jun 2015 09:37:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-does-quality-construction-4-mean/589619/ 2015-06-03T09:37:00Z how can i findout if someone died in the house im renting http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-i-findout-if-someone-died-in-the-house-im-renting/300252/ 14 replies Fri, 20 Nov 2009 21:14:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-i-findout-if-someone-died-in-the-house-im-renting/300252/ 2009-11-20T21:14:00Z Where can I find owner financed properties? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-can-I-find-owner-financed-properties/394954/ Where can I find owner financed properties?<br \><br \>37 replies Wed, 13 Apr 2011 18:13:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-can-I-find-owner-financed-properties/394954/ 2011-04-13T18:13:00Z iam 66year old man who has bad credit from past indiscretions . never owned a home but want to buy http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/iam-66year-old-man-who-has-bad-credit-from-past-indiscretions-never-owned-a-home-but-want-to-buy/573786/ Have 530percent dn.

Apparently, a very large number of homes here were all built at about the same time when there was a building boom. Now, years later, many are very dated and badly in need of upgrades. I've been look for a couple of years, while renting and most of the time even the description and photos on Zillow show me that I would never buy a particular home. The same is true of those that I've gone to see with a real estate agent. Now I am wondering if it's better and possible to go for a price lower than my budget and remodel a house to fit my likes. My NEEDS are just a small house in a decent, safe neighborhood, but its my last home to buy and I'll only live in for about ten-fifteen years. Is there a good standard or systematic way to find the house and my remodeling requirements.I've seen great success with some of these on HGTV, but don't know how to go about it myself. Now I am wondering why I left a perfectly good home, updated and made like new for the next owner.&nbsp;<br \><br \>4 replies Tue, 27 Jan 2015 07:20:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-best-to-buy-and-remodel-a-home-that-doesn%27t-fit-all-your-needs/573569/ 2015-01-27T07:20:00Z Looking for ratings on Las Vegas home builders http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Looking-for-ratings-on-Las-Vegas-home-builders/488727/ I have been looking on the internet at some of the new construction homes in the Las Vegas area. I seem to be having a problem finding any reviews of the builders that seem honest and reliable. To read the reviews I've seen it would indicate none of the major builders should be trusted. That's just not possible and leads me to believe the most of the ones writing reviews have an axe to grind. Does anyone have an opinion on what builders have the best reputations, ones to avoid or where to find honest reviews?&nbsp; I've been looking at builders such as: Del Webb, Toll Brothers, Ryland, KB homes and the like.<br \><br \>10 replies Fri, 19 Apr 2013 23:38:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Looking-for-ratings-on-Las-Vegas-home-builders/488727/ 2013-04-19T23:38:00Z Rental Investment still feasible in Las Vegas? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Rental-Investment-still-feasible-in-Las-Vegas/571785/ Hello all,<br/>Looking for some advice on the investment/rental market in Las Vegas. My friend and I are considering dipping our toe into the real estate investment waters, starting with a one single family home to begin with. However, with the appreciation we've seen in the housing market over the past year or two I'm wondering what kind of CAP rates we can still hope to achieve. This would a be long-term plan for us and a simply breaking even on cash flow to begin with would be acceptable. Any thoughts or advice you can offer is greatly appreciated.

We might rent out a room while living there, and it would be nice if it were comfortable enough for three people to have space.&nbsp;<br/>Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!<br/>Thanks, so much!<br/>Victoria<br \><br \>8 replies Sat, 01 Nov 2014 18:34:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/First-time-home-buyers-looking-for-good-investment-in-Vegas-would-love-help-from-professionals/565092/ 2014-11-01T18:34:00Z Moving to vegas.
