• Why can't my house sell?

    All the feedback in getting is the price is right and they love the house but it's just too small. Had 20 showings in 3 weeks and no offers. How can I make my house sell when everyone's concern is the size? How long before a house on the market typically sells?

  • Why are tenants in the USA so demanding?

    Best answer: When you say you did all you could do to let to the best people, does that mean you did background checks, verify past rental history (calling former landlords), checked credit and court history, etc? Just renting to a certain "type" isn't enough, you really have to do your legwork and be... show more
    Best answer: When you say you did all you could do to let to the best people, does that mean you did background checks, verify past rental history (calling former landlords), checked credit and court history, etc? Just renting to a certain "type" isn't enough, you really have to do your legwork and be particular.

    Unfortunately even if you fully vet them there are tenants who treat a long term rental like a hotel stay, where you'd expect every little maintenance issue to be catered to by the proprietor no matter how minor. You may just need to update your lease to be more specific about what sort of things the landlord is responsible to fix. The problem here is people who take things for granted and never read up on landlord/tenant law to see exactly what their liabilities are so you may have to spell it out for them.

    But regarding things they break themselves, you may just want them to call you for those things anyway. I wouldn't want someone else to attempt a repair on something like a broken window in my property because chances are they'll try to get it done on the cheap and won't get it done correctly, which can make things worse. For things they have broken you can send them a bill for it, but only if you can prove it wasn't like that when they moved in and don't try to charge them for things that may not have been their fault (an oven that burns out just because it's older for example). Take date-stamped photos of every inch of the unit after a tenant moves out, before you clean it up so you can prove how they left it and after you clean it up to show what condition it was in before the next tenant moved in. And, don't get lazy about it. You may never need the photos, but you'll be glad you have them when you do.

    I have never managed property in another country but I do agree, tenants in the USA can be very demanding if not unreasonable. Some also know how to play the system. That type can be very litigious so that's why I advocate doing as thorough a background search as you can to make sure they don't have a list of court filings as long as your arm or have a history of ditching in the middle of their leases, and document, document, document!!

  • So my friend asked me for my bank card...?

    Best answer: Your 'friend' is trying to steal money from you. If you give him your bank card, he will either vanish with it or tell you he 'dropped' it somewhere and it got 'lost'.

    But here is a test.

    Call the bank when you are not with your friend and tell them your bank card was lost (cancel it please) and to send you a replacement along with a re-set for your PIN.

    Give the friend the card that you just reported lost.

    if he comes back to you screaming and mad...then he is not your friend. (How long have you known this person? I've been married to the same guy for years and years and years. He does not know my PIN and I do not know his.

  • If a renter moves out of the house your renting (no lease), do you have to formally "evict" them to prevent them from returning?

    The other tenant and I signed a lease for 2 years. At the time, we had a third roommate (an occupant) who pitched in for the security deposit. We split it three ways. This occupant was going to be there for a year but instead stayed only 6 months. She did not ask about the deposit upon moving out but now she is asking for her chunk. Did she forfeit her deposit when she left without inquiring about it? Plus, aren t deposits dedicated to maintaining the apartment in good condition? The other tenant says she doesn t deserve any of it. Can she legally say she should get her deposit back?

  • Can I get a car loan with a 680 credit score?

    Best answer: You can get a loan but how much interest you have to pay depends upon your credit score. Since you score is low you will have to pay a high rate of interest. Try and hold off for awhile until your score goes up.

    Back around March, my wife went to the hospital because she couldn't keep any food down for days at a time. So, I took her to the ER where she found out she had Stage 4 Large cell carcinoma. Fast forward to now, the cancer has spread to her brain, and she was only eating ice chips in her final hours, and I was at work when I got the call she had passed. When I informed my boss, he gave me his condolences, but he said that he couldn't give me any time off, because there was anyone else qualified to discuss project details with one of our newer customers. I was more than upset to say the least, and my boss said he sincerely apologizes that he doesn't have anyone else. Any recommendations on what to do besides find a new job?
