can I find out the value of my homes by typing in the addresses on this site here?

Answer
Yes, like the others said, Zillow gives a relatively accurate value for each property. If you want really specific numbers, you'll want to contact an agent in that area who does property evaluations regularly and knows the market. If you need precision, you want Realtors. I do over 1500 property evaluations a year and also find time to sell 30-40 homes a year, so if you're in my market area, just shoot me a list of addresses you want values on and I'll get to work and give you accuracy. We can then judge those against the Zillow values. :)Tim H

Can a tenant replace carpet without landlords permission even if there is nothing in the lease?

Answer
Your question is a purely legal issue. The people answering on this site will be Realtors who are not allowed to engage in legal discussions with the public or their clients, unless they are also licensed as attorneys. Each state is going to have a different code. I know in CA you cannot make renovations on properties as the tenant without written permission from the landlord. You don't own it, you can't break/fix it. That's just the lease agreement we have commonly. However, "what should you do" or what can you do? Call an attorney if you want to take it there.Tim H

does a real estate agent have to disclosure any problem with the neighbors who are animal hoarders?

Answer
Arl, you'll definately need to talk to the legal department of your brokerage. If you're broker is small, then call the local/state board as they typically have free legal advise for these types of questions.The way I was taught, if you ask the question "do I need to disclose this?" then the answer is yes. Disclosure until you're blue in the face and leave nothing out. You need to protect yourself, and this is all you have to protect yourself with.Tim H
