So I own a condo unit on the ground floor of a 3 story building and then tenant has mentioned that there is evidence of mold in the walls of one of the bathrooms.

| Money Talk|| Attempting to buy rental- seller wants cash offers only - Htown Tiger on 1/30/14 at 7:14 pm|
And good advice in this situation? Is it because he thinks it won't appraise well since it does need some work before being able to be rented? Or is he afraid the bank just won't finance it?
If I end up paying cash, can I fix it up and then go to the bank and get a loan at that point? ...

So I switched HO insurances this year and when signing up, I just used the same coverages as my previous policy. So for instance, lets say my dwelling protection was $300k.
I then received a letter saying that an estimator has established a "replacement cost" of a lesser amount, say $260k. The in...

I'm looking into buying some rental property and if so I'd like to set up an LLC for it. I'm not sure how long it takes to setup an LLC but do I need it fully set up prior to putting in an offer for the house? Or as long as I have it by closing time and sign everything under the LLC, that would suff...

Has anyone ever been asked to provide a hiring company's HR department (i.e. prior to them finalizing an offer to you) your past 2-3 years of compensation (salary+bonus+stock+etc)? I just recently was, and am a little curious about the rationalization behind it. For an opportunity that's a pretty ni...

Been over 4 weeks since my second, all day long interview and either a) the company hasn't made a decision, or b) they did and the recruiting agency is just moving on. This person really wasn't "my recruiter", but more of a headhunting service that this particular company utilizes all the time. I'm ...

I understand sending them when you're a college student interviewing for a job. I also understand them when you've been in the industry a couple of year and are interviewing for that next step up, be it a Senior position or even a Manager level. It's more of a formality than anything else, and reall...
