You cannot, she has to. Most states have a Quit Claim Deed where she would add you to the deed. Contact a local real estate attorney and they can draw it up and file the right document for you.... more
Mortgage rates are at all time lows and you can still grab a first time buyer tax credit. NOW is the time to buy. If rates go up, it doesn't matter how much prices "might" fall, you will still be ahead.... more
You do realize Trulia and other websites don't sell anything to anyone. They just are a bulletin board listing stuff others are selling. You need to speak to the Realtor that has it listed or get your Realtor to help you make offers.... more
Without much information and since there are other factors involved in determining mortgage qualification, for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously.... more
Good afternoon Neka,
I’m no real estate agent, just a humble Mortgage Banker, but I can give you some guidance on your search for the right rental apartment.
In my experience in the real estate trade, I’ve discovered that the consumer is best served by adopting some simple strategies, whether you’re buying a home, selling one, or renting an apartment.
First: remember that real estate agents work on commission. The better quality agents---and those with the most experience---will be testing you from the initial contact to determine if you’re serious and will commit to using their services. Why? Because real estate is like any other business; you don’t sit at a table in a restaurant to read the menu without actually buying food at some point. It’s the same concept: the experienced real estate professional has to earn a living by renting apartments to serious and qualified prospective renters.
Therefore, the smart consumer should be well-prepared and committed to respecting the real estate professional’s time. Prepare yourself with three fundamentals: amenities, location, and price.
Know your requirements for the apartment you wish to rent in terms of amenities (one bedroom versus three bedrooms; elevator building or private house), location (proximity to public transportation or need for parking), and price. If you present yourself as well-prepared you’ll have a better chance of working with an experienced agent who will work hard to find you the right apartment.
Second, start with the internet---especially TRULIA.com---but stay “local.” Don’t think a real estate agent in Brooklyn can find you an apartment in Queens, or vice versa. Here on TRULIA.com you can easily find a local professional by clicking on “FIND an AGENT” at the top of this page. There you can hone in on a seasoned professional in exactly the area where you wish to rent your apartment.
TRULIA provides exceptional tools to help you as a consumer understand the quality of the professional you’re working with. Read the agent’s profile; check out the recommendations from previous clients; get to know the level of experience of the agent and the areas that agent covers.
Third, real estate agents are prevented by Federal regulations from answering certain types of questions. They cannot discuss schools or school districts, crime statistics, and a variety of other issues prohibited by Fair Housing regulations. If your agent is vague when you ask certain types of questions, now you know why.
Finally, demonstrate your level of seriousness to your real estate agent. Show up on time for your appointments to view apartments. If you’re required to submit documents for the Landlord to review with your rental application, get them into your agent’s hands pronto. Not only does this help you potentially get one step ahead of a competing renter, but you’ll be viewed by the Landlord as a responsible renter. Landlords prefer responsible renters, don’t they?
I hope that helps you improve the results of your search for an apartment, and helps you with a better quality experience.

Unclear are you looking to buy or rent; if purchasing begin researching areas of interest now, have your financials in order and visit with any licensed loan officer; also choose an agent to work with. If looking to rent, you can begin now as well....... more
I am sorry to hear about your situation. Have you investigated temporary housing situations? Maybe a month-to-month rental of a room on CraigsList or on AirBnB?
Hope things work out for you!

You should let your Realtor price it. There are many factors and data involved in comparing properties properly, especially in this climate of short sales, non-short sales and bank owned properties. And if you are not a Realtor, you don't have access to all the necessary information. You will need a Realtor with experience selling homes in your area.... more
Check with the local building's department for any necessary permits, see links for additional information...
