How to obtain a refund on property taxes for a calculation error in square footage?

Answer

The best to do as far as your taxes is to contact your taxing authority and ask them how to proceed.  I know here in Michigan the taxing authorities have brochures that tell how to fight your taxes.Really the only way to get any money back would be to sue for misrepresentation of the listing.  I actually caught that for one of my buyers and got a huge amount knocked off the price of the house that was already agreed!

Moving

West Michigan has one of the best job markets in Michigan.  What type of job are you looking for?  I would start networking, even from California.  Get on Linked In and utilize Facebook.  Let us know here what type of job you are looking for and what your education and qualifications are.Blessings!

LOOK OUT...THIS COULD BE A SCAM??

Response

You should always look at the tax records to see who is owner if you have a question.  Usually the tax records will indicate the owners address if they are not currently living in the address.  Send a good old snail mail to confirm!

When should I start looking?

Answer

I would just start in December.  Even if you find something that isn't a short sale, purchasing it would be a good bet as long as it is already rented.  If you want to live in it, you are going to have to give current tenants at least 30 days to be out anyway.  Make sure there isn't a long lease in place before you purchase.  Also remember that you can negotiate with the current owner to buy out the lease for the current tenants if you want in before their lease is up.I have owned rental properties for over 20 years and put it in my lease that a tenant can buy out a lease...no reason why a seller couldn't offer them money to shorten the lease.

How long does a reforeclosure take?

Answer

I had a listing that it only took 6 weeks but it really depends on the bank and how diligent they are about getting it taken care of!

how much does a buyers agent get paid

Answer

As a general rule it costs nothing to work with a buyers agent.  The buyers agent is paid by the seller but they still watch out for your best interest.The only thing it might cost you is an administration fee.  Almost all of the Brokers have this cost.  The beauty is.....you can ask the seller to pay that fee also!!!

Where are good daycare centers in the area?

Answer

I was a childcare provider for 12 years before the last 10 as a real estate agent.  Some things you should ask yourself is what type of care do you want?  Do you want a center experience or would you prefer a home child care provider.  If you want a center experience, look up what centers are in the area and then Google Reviews for that Center.If you want in home...go to the library during work hours...good providers always do activities with their kids.  There are usually extension offices in each county.  If you were in West Michigan I would be able to give you some specific names but I hope my hints helped!
