The buyer may have loan conditions to satisfy before he/she can get loan documents. If the buyers lender rep did his job right the loan docs should arrive on time.

1. First of all, most leases start as a 1 year min lease and revert to month to month after.
2. A lease deposit amount  is 1/1/2 months rent for the deposit.
3. Two months rent for deposit is the legal limit for unfurnished homes and three months rent is the
legal limit for furnished homes.
4. Most leases require the tenant to pay the first $65-$75 of all repairs. The home owner keeps a
home warranty and uses the $65-$75 to pay the deductable when repairs are needed.
5. If you have a pet you most likely will be charged a pet deposit. Typical is $500
6. The deposits are refundable, but landlords do make deductions for cleaning, paint and repairs

 EXPLANATION OF APPRAISAL & MARKET VALUE:

How is a home’s value determined?  Hence, banks use an appraiser to determine market value. Because, they want to be sure the home is really worth the amount being loaned to the buyer. Consequently, if the buyer ever goes into default or property values drop in a down market either, the owner will do a short sale or the bank will probably foreclose. In addition, the bank will sell the property to recover as much of the original loan amount as possible to avoid loss. Furthermore, this is why it is standard in most purchase agreements all must appraise at full purchase price.

WHAT DOES AN APPRAISAL COST?

An appraisal is a professional estimate of a property’s market value. In Addition, It is based on recent sales of comparable properties with similar sq footage bedrooms and baths within about 1 mile, with the same construction quality. Also, this service varies in cost depending on the price of the home. Consequently, an appraisal costs about $450 dollars. Appraisers do a more detailed analysis than a realtor but they are similar.

ABOUT COMPARABLE MARKET ANALYSIS?

Realtors use the comparative market analysis to determine market value. A comparative market analysis is an informal estimate of market value performed by a real estate agent free of charge. Especially relevant, It is based on recent similar sales with the same sq footage bedrooms and baths and same year built within 1 mile of the subject property going back 3-4 months.

SELLING YOUR HOUSE YOURSELF?

If you’re planning to sell your home, it’s probably crossed your mind to sell the home yourself and save the sales commission. But, there are some good reasons why that would be a mistake. According to housing industry experts at HomeGain.com and Realtor.org, more homes listed by real estate agents are sold than homes marketed by owners, and they sell more quickly and for more money. Homes listed by real estate professionals get more exposure and their sellers get more support. When you market your own home, you have to find the time to do all the jobs a real estate professional would do, and you’ll be competing against other sellers who have real estate professionals by their sides. You are going to need home seller representation.

My Wife and I met David LeMontree about 8 years ago at an open house. we were unable to afford the home that David was showing at that time.He assured us that he would be able to find us a home that would meet all of our needs. The next day I received a call from Mr LeMontree who was extremely in tuned with what my wife and I desired in home choices. Approximately a week later, he was able to find us a home that was in a desirable location and affordable. We recently purchased a 2nd home with David and with his assistance was able to rent out house #1. Needless to say we have had nothing but positive things to say about David.

Hello David,

07-11-2012

Thank you for the gift card.  You didn't have to do that.  I really enjoyed working with you. You were very patient and understanding my needs to get the right house and right price.  You were also very flexible.  I look forward to dealing with you in the future as the housing market improves to where I can sell my house.

Thanks so much.

Ha Nguyen
