real estate: Be Aware Of All Of The Scams Targeting Realtors!!! - 05/18/07 02:34 AM
I'm sure I'm not the only one receiving these emails from multi-million dollar buyers, investors, and others that want to give me free money!!!   If it seems too good to be true, it probably is!
 
 
Here's a warning that came from another Keller Williams Realty office....
We received a check in the mail this week, drawn on a shipping company in Wisconsin, in the amount of $9500.00.  The check came in an envelope that was posted in Nigeria, with no explanation of why they were sending us the money.  It was made payable to Keller Williams Realty.

real estate: You've found your new home and signed the contract...when can you move in? - 03/05/07 09:48 AM
Buying a home, however, is far more complicated than buying a car. Plus, you're not likely to take title to a home as quickly as you can drive new car off the showroom floor. How long it takes to close a sale varies from one home purchase transaction to the next. Closing occurs when title to the property transfers from the seller to the buyer. The closing date is one of the many elements of a home purchase contract that are negotiated by the buyer and seller. The buyer usually proposes a closing date in the initial offer. If that date … (0 comments)

real estate: What is included in a home sale? - 03/05/07 09:45 AM
It's helpful to understand the difference between real property and personal property. Real property refers to the land and anything that is permanently attached to it, such as a house, trees, shrubs and a fence. Personal property is movable--things that are not permanently attached to real property. Furniture, clothing, art work and potted plants are examples of personal property. A fixture is an item of personal property that is attached to the real property and is therefore treated as real property such as plumbing and light fixtures. Fixtures typically transfer to the buyer with the real property unless they are specifically … (0 comments)

real estate: What kind of insurance will I need when I buy a home? - 03/05/07 09:44 AM
Before a lender will issue the mortgage funds to close on a home purchase, a policy of title insurance is usually required which guarantees the lender's interest in the property. The buyer usually pays for the lender's title policy. But, the lender's policy won't protect the buyer's interest in the property. Buyers should obtain their own policy of title insurance. Who pays for the buyer's title insurance is usually negotiable between the buyer and seller, and is often set by local custom. Title insurance is paid for on a one-time only basis, and it's not transferable. The cost of a policy … (0 comments)

real estate: Does your home have "defects"? Of course it does! - 03/05/07 09:38 AM
Did you know that just about every home has defects?
You'll undoubtedly discover defects during your inspections. In fact, you should hope that any significant defects are uncovered before you remove your inspection contingency from the purchase contract. It's far worse to be surprised after closing by unanticipated repair expenses. Armed with a complete assessment of the current condition of the property, you can make an informed decision about whether to purchase the property in its present condition. Or, you may want to renegotiate the terms of your contract with the seller. If defects are incurable, you may want to withdraw from … (0 comments)

real estate: What is an "as-is" sale? - 03/05/07 09:35 AM
What is an "as is" sale?It's difficult to know from an advertisement what "as is" means with respect to the sale of a residential property. It can mean that the property is being sold in its present condition and without a warranty. In other words: The seller makes no guarantees about the property's condition.In some states, like California, sellers may provide a general warranty of habitability when they sell a home. Generally, this means that the roof is free of known leaks and the dwelling systems like plumbing and electrical are in working order. With an "as is" sale, such a … (0 comments)

real estate: 10 Questions to Ask Your Realtor about Buying a House - 02/24/07 09:32 AM
1. Are you a full-time professional Realtor®? How long have you worked full time in real estate? How long have you been representing buyers? What professional designations do you have? Knowing whether or not your agent practices full time can help you determine potential scheduling conflicts and his or her commitment to your transaction. As with any profession, the number of years a person has been in the business does not necessarily reflect the level of service you can expect, but it is a good starting point for your discussion. The same issue can apply to professional designations. 2. Do you … (0 comments)

real estate: Rhode Island Out-of-State Landlord Law: Property Management - 02/14/07 08:38 AM
Are you an out-of-state landlord?
If you're an out-of-state landlord then you do need a property manager!
Did you know that Rhode Island law (R.I.G.L. 34-18-22.3) requires all non resident landlords to register with the secretary of state's office and the city/town clerk's office where the property is located.  This law requires the non resident landlord to provide an in-state agent and in-state address for service of process and notice.  The most important provision of the law is the penalty sections for non-compliance.  If a landlord does not designate an in-state property manager and file the appropriate paper work, … (0 comments)
