We always recommend an inspection on a new construction, just to have another set of eyes on the home. Some builders do not like this, but some welcome it. I would recommend it either way.
Like I said before. Just find a builder that can handle the land purchase, building the home etc....and he/she can collect their money at closing. Just remember some smaller builders (which can be the best) require up to $50k earnest money incase you walk. It's called a custom build and there are premiums for this. Good luck and good responses from the other agents that chimed in. Thank you
New construction loans can be tricky. Going through a broker and treating it like a package deal with the land, construction, landscaping etc.. would probably be easier on you. The builder would have a line of credit to get everything and you would just be getting one loan and have representation and someone watching and helping you through the construction process. Hope this helps.
If you are moving to ATL we can help, send me an email or call.Thank You
Hopefully an agent in California with short sale expertise will chime in and help you with your problem. Good luck with your short sale, I hope all turns out well for you and your husband.
I apologize that you are frustrated. I can not reason why there has been no sign put out for advertisement. In GA we have to present all offers, no matter how ridiculous they are, it is real estate law. Is the $7000 in closing and 1/2 for inspections part of an offer? Or does she just want to put that in the listing to try and persuade more people to show interest?
Like everyone else said, it is going to be investment property which means a bunch of cash to be brought to the table.
We have to have a window (for fire dept) and it must be working to pass a VA inspection and any sized closet that is built in to be considered a bedroom. No dimension requirement as I know of.
Go to your bank, they should have copies. If you paid in cash you may have to get the landlord to write a letter documenting the payments, it may have to notarized and all that good stuff.And yes. this is normal.Good Luck with your new Home!
Call your agent and then the Broker, if you cant get an answer there then call the lawyer. We just had a seller take the logs out of a gas fireplace, he was in the right to do that, I learned something new that day.
