Why should missionaries, U.N. workers, and military personnel not be trusted? These categories and others include many honest people who for legitimate reasons wish to buy or rent a house in the U.S. Why incite irrational discrimination against non-U.S. residents or U.S. citizens abroad?<br/><br/>&nbsp;<br/><br \><br \>3 replies Thu, 27 Feb 2014 17:51:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/See-below/530218/ 2014-02-27T17:51:00Z Zestimate on my home has dropped by 30,000!

At closing, our fees on the HUD only totaled $4529 that were to be paid for by the sellers. However, we signed a contract that promised us $5000 at closing by the sellers, not just for closing fees, but as a bonus to the buyers for closing which could go to whatever we desired. &nbsp;<br/><br/>They promised to our realtor and their relator that they would bring a $471 check to our title company if we signed, however they decided not to do so. &nbsp;Who is liable for ensuring this debt is paid based on our contracted agreement at the time we decided to purchase the home? &nbsp;The $5000 is well below the 3% marker of the allowable amount for the sellers to pay, so how is it that we can recover this relatively small, but well deserved amount?&nbsp;<br \><br \>9 replies Wed, 07 Aug 2013 21:50:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Sellers-signed-to-provide-us-Buyers-5000-at-Closing-and-haven%27t-paid-full-amount/505762/ 2013-08-07T21:50:00Z Crime in Santa Fe Seems To Be Out Of Control http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Crime-in-Santa-Fe-Seems-To-Be-Out-Of-Control/492142/ How can there be so much crime in such a small city, where it's possible for people to know who is doing it!?<br/><br/>Big City crime, I understand. <br/><br/>Small city with a strong police force, 17 police stations - I don't understand all the crime.
