We've been seeing more review appraisals in the last 6 months then I've seen in years and it's not just on investment properties. Hope that gives you some helpful insight
Johny,Depending on what search tool your using to search for homes in your local area you should be able to click a checkbox that picks type of home.Sadly not all property search engines give you that option.
When you originally wrote your offer to purchase your agent should have explained as part of the financing contingency, who would be responsible for the closing costs. In Wisconsin it's not uncommon for us to negotiate with the seller to pay the buyers costs but it's something that has to be negotiated, otherwise they are typically your responsibility.
