You really need to consider having those negatives removed from your credit, especially if as you state, they are not yours--Not knowing your oevrall finances--visit with any qualified loan officer(s) and see if you qualify, how much, and have your credit score checked, as their scoring is often different--then go from there.... more
Usually stagers will recommend you stage the first rooms you see when you walk in, the master suite and then any "odd use" rooms. If it isn't clear what the room would be used for it is good to stage that. So for a Highland Creek home, they might suggest the entry hall, the front two rooms, the kitchen and the family room. Then the master. They wouldn't need to stage the bonus, or the extra bedrooms. If your back yard is a big selling feature, with a deck (for example) they would suggest doing that too.
Stagers prices differ, but basically you can figure it would be around $1600 - 2500 for a two month rental of the furniture, staging services, and the move in and move out. Most stagers have to pay about $200 to get the furniture in, and $200 to get it out. Then their time to stage it is about $600 - $800 for a couple full days of work. Then the rental on the furniture and accessories. (Which they usually own.) They pay for warehouse space.... etc. And they will go out and purchase new pieces for your home if they need them.
Stagers will also give you advice on painting and easy to do upgrades that can make a big difference in your sales price.
Call a stager and they will come out for a consultation fee and give you a price.
We recommend our listings get staged... and it really helps them sell faster !... more
It depends. Do you mind receiving calls in the middle of the night when there is an emergency in the house? Do you have time to be at war with the tenant and running back and forth to court when they decide not to pay. If the answer is no then a property manager might be good option for you. Can't recommend one in your state.... more
There are probably a few that do. A lot of it is going to depend on what you are looking for in a home and where you want to live. Are you looking for something new or something a resale? Some of the older subdivisions will probably allow your own pools and the newer ones most likely have community pools...There are factors to consider like your price point, type of house you are looking for and features and amenities you want in a home.
But I have sold homes in a couple of those zip codes where pools were either already installed or the buyer planned on putting one in.... So a little more information will help and you can find homes that will allow it. You just need to refine your search and find a Realtor to help you out.

Don't contact listing agents. They may be busy with their listings. And, more important, you want an agent representing you, not the owner. Use the tools here to find one Realtor to be your agent. Just work with one. That agent will (or at least should) provide good service, return your calls, and so on.... more
That might depend on what you did before this job. Another job? Job in the same field? Student?
You might be a good candidate for an FHA loan.
Best way to know for sure is to contact a loan officer.
I'd be happy to recommend a few. Just shoot me an email.
The data shows a higher rate of foreclosures in that zip code vs other parts of the city. A lot of the builders 5 years ago had looser loan programs that they offered with their new homes for sale. First time homebuyers were able to get sub-prime loans with very little money down and 28269 was a hot area to purchase these types of deals. It's also a very transient area of the city (people moving in and out with jobs) and some folks who moved could not get their home sold due to the dropping values. We have seen personally that as more homes went to foreclosure, the neighborhoods were depleting a bit due to more renters coming in. They were not keeping up the yards as well as the owner occupants.
Hope this helps.

How does this sound: Pay full asking price.
Doesn't sound right does it?
Reduce the offering price by at least 100% of the repair costs.
Turn around and walk away. Most sellers are still completely delusional and are more than happy to wait until clear signs of economic collapse to force them to dump the property and run for the hills.... more
