what is my home worth so I can refinance?


Have an agent do a Comparative market analysis to give you a good feeling of your homes market value.  Also an appraisal will be done during the refinance.

Buying a townhome to rent because of good deal, but really want to buy ahouse


To me it sounds like your attempting to get in a little over your head.  If you are sure that you want a house, I would recommend saving and purchasing a home when you are ready.  To jump into buying a town home that you don't necessarily want to own would be a mistake.  If you didn't have any plans of being a landlord it would be best to be patient.  Being a landlord is a lot of responsibility and in this case two mortgages is not better than one. 

Homes for Hometown Heroes


Thanks for the info would love to hear more about the concept so maybe we could do something similar in NC.

As a Realtor do you sell other home related products and services to your clients?


I usually refer my clients to people whom I have worked with in the past for certain needs, such as homeowners insurance.  These services should be included in you due diligence as an agent so that they will not be taken advantage of.  I do know of some realtors that try and stack these services on their clients for a profit but it is extremely time consuming in a job that has enough stress.
