I'm now 63, and my cousin, and sister, and me&nbsp;want to look after eachother. I have suggested a place in Arizona. Single family, or a condo We are flexible , but on a budget.. Can anyone find us a dreamhouse w/glass high up maybe a view of city lights. Not a big sprawling place, maybe a place that needs some work, a simple 2br+ w/ garage is all we ask. Just sending out a feeler if anyone knows of a property like this. Thank you, and happy living. Anthony.P.S. it could be paradise valley,or anywhere where the location is good.<br \><br \>4 replies Mon, 10 Feb 2014 06:17:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-or-condo-w-view/527894/ 2014-02-10T06:17:00Z how do I find homes that have price reductions http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-find-homes-that-have-price-reductions/525148/ WHen a house has gone thru price reduction how can I find that criteria setting?<br \><br \>5 replies Mon, 20 Jan 2014 17:58:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-I-find-homes-that-have-price-reductions/525148/ 2014-01-20T17:58:00Z looking to buy/rent to own a home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/looking-to-buy-rent-to-own-a-home/518330/ credit isn't so good. but i have a good job and make good money. i want to buy a home or rent to own. 1st time buyer, don't know where to start. any help would be appreciated!<br \><br \>5 replies Fri, 08 Nov 2013 03:07:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/looking-to-buy-rent-to-own-a-home/518330/ 2013-11-08T03:07:00Z Just filed bankruptcy???? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Just-filed-bankruptcy/526349/ I just filed bankruptcy and will be relocating to Arizona after I graduate.

An issue has come up leading to a dispute with the buyer. This issue has involved attorneys, but no agreement could be reached. The Residential Purchase Agreement states in section 7(c) that the dispute has to be taken to the&nbsp;REALTOR Dispute Resolution System for&nbsp;mediation first. My buyer's agent has refused to help, partly because she has no knowledge on how to proceed with the DRS. Any advice that anyone can provide?

After the inspection period seller and I agreed that he fix several items listed in the BINSR. During the final walk-through all items appeared (visible check) to have been fixed. After I moved in it became apparent that fixing an item on the list created an issue elsewhere in the house that was originally working fine. I have proof that the seller knew that a new problem would be created by fixing the item on the BINSR, but intentionally remained silent and did not inform me of the new issue prior to close of escrow. QUESTION: considering that a seller is required to fully disclose all known issues, what recourse do I have? Is the seller required to fix the new problem that has been created?<br \><br \>10 replies Wed, 28 Aug 2013 18:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-recourse-do-I-have-if-items-on-BINSR-have-not-been-corrected/509018/ 2013-08-28T18:47:00Z VA home Loan- what would a 240k mortgage equal in monthly $$$ (around) http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/VA-home-Loan-what-would-a-240k-mortgage-equal-in-monthly-around/517668/ And any negatives or things To ask/watch out for if I use the va to finance a loan?
