If you have rambunctious young neighbors with particularly noisy roosters ... should you disclose it to a prospective Buyer? You don’t know what your Buyer’s reaction may be so we believe you should disclose all such tranquility anomalies. We are asked on a regular basis what should be disclosed. It is human nature to want to rely on the “Caveat Emptor” philosophy used for (7 comments)

nevada real estate: The M's of Real Estate ... Nevada Real Estate Today! - 11/30/10 10:35 PM
The M's of Real Estate ... Nevada Real Estate Today! There are many M's in real estate today. The Big Three M's are familiar, yet mysterious to many. The first you'll typically encounter is Modification ("Mod"). A Loan Modification is a permanent change in one or more terms of a loan. Your Lender will contact you when your payments stop arriving, and they'll suggest that you apply for a Loan Modification. Loan Mods let the loan be reinstated from foreclosure status, and adjusts the payment so the borrower can afford it. Even though you may be contacted by your Lender to (1 comments)
nevada real estate: Rumors, Gossip, and Nevada Real Estate - 10/29/10 12:56 PM
Rumors, Gossip, and Nevada Real Estate Traveling East one year to show ranches, we fueled up in Austin, Nevada. On entering the gas station Jim heard the clerk say, "I don't want to hear that, I don't gossip." to which the speaker replied, "It's not gossip, it's just what's going on around town!" True story. What's going on around town certainly isn't always gossip and rumors, but often it is. Real estate has a way of initiating much of both.There have been a lot of real estate headlines lately that have caused a lot of speculation and ... rumors. As the (1 comments)

nevada real estate: Physical Disclosure on Forclosure Property - 09/05/07 10:35 AM
I'm going to bid on a foreclosure property ... how do I know its physical condition?That is one of the inherent risks of buying property at foreclosure auctions ... you generally don't know the condition - especially the interior. If the property owner still occupies the property you can't access it unless it is listed for sale and you can set up a showing. If it is vacant you might be able to peek through the windows, but you are technically trespassing. Generally, you are buying the proverbial "pig in a poke".The Lender doesn't own the property until after the foreclosure, (2 comments)
