If the house is a HUD repo, it will be listed on their website at www.hudhomestore.com. HUD repo homes are purchased using an online auction system. If the property you are interested in is a HUD repo, it is important to find a real estate professional who is also a HUD designated bidding agent. HUD's can be great buys but the process is different than a traditional sale. Let me know if I can help. I am a HUD designated bidding broker in Idaho.
Hi Angela. We just helped a buyer purchase a home after filing Chapter 7 and short selling their prior home. They were not able to obtain their mortgage to purchase this new home until two years after their bankruptcy discharge date. Yes, both the bankruptcy and the foreclosure will most likely show up on your credit report; however, if your reason for filing bankruptcy was medical and that can be documented AND you are able to keep your payment history on time and your credit clean for the next two years, you should be able to buy another home two years from your discharge date. We have a lot of experience with this type of situation, so if you have further questions you are more than welcome to email us at "firstname.lastname@example.org" or call us at (208) 880-1455. Good luck with everything!... more
Some property owners will allow this if deposits are increased by enough to cover the risk. No matter how well behaved the dogs are, the property owner will always have some damage due to dogs. Most often it is from the wear and tear to the flooring due to the dog's nails, scratching on doors and door frames, and damage spots in the yard due to digging and urine. I love dogs and I've always had them in my home. They are valuable members of my family. However, for a renter each dog will come with an extra cost. Please send me a private message if you would like the name and number of a property manager who may be able to help or it you would like to see if it is possible to buy a home for you and your pets. My email is email@example.com and my cell number is (208)989-5777. Good luck!... more
That is always a concern when considering a move. I'll share with you that Nampa and surrounding cities such as Meridian have seen significant growth in the retail arena. Home building has also begun again, and is quite strong in the area. I'll direct you to a Manpower Employment Outlook Survey for our area for details about expected job growth. http://press.manpower.com/reports/2013/healthy-job-market-expected-for-boise-city-nampa-id-msa/
Cut and paste the URL into your browser and check out their statistics. Hope this helps, and if you do decide to make the move, or would like to have home listings sent to you so that you can get a pulse on the housing market, don't hesitate to call or email and I can get that search set up for you in the MLS. My direct email is JuanitaSellsHomes@gmail.com. Best of luck in your decision to move!... more
There are three figures I like to look at to see average price.
1. The average active homes for sale in the area. This tell what homes are for sale and what the average asking price is. For this zip code from January through the end of June (2013) it is $173,685 for existing homes and new construction is $178,126.
2. The average pending price for homes being sold in the area. This tells what homes were actively for sale and then have Purchase and Sales Agreement for the area. For this zip code from January through the end of June (2013) it is $136,350 for existing homes and new construction is $188,410.
3. The average Sold price. This means it has been through the first two plus appraisal, closed and recorded with the county. For this zip code from January through the end of June (2013) it is $126,417 for existing homes and new construction is $166,109.
I am happy to explain any of these further, call me anytime at 208-965-5955.

As for a short sale, its a lot like a regular sale..you've got inspection fees and the regular closing costs associated with title insurance and escrow fees. The difference is that you have a third party involved- the bank- who needs to give their approval of the offered price for the home..as they are forgiving the difference between what is currently owed on the property to them and what is being offered for the property. Short sales cost some time and patience as you're dealing with a bank and their own time schedules...also unlike a normal sale where you can negotiate the seller paying closing costs for the buyer..usually a bank will not negotiate paying for buyer closing costs.
Just a note to remember, with a short sale just like a foreclosure..you're dealing with a distressed property..use due diligence (and make sure you have an agent who does this also) to protect yourself from clouds on the title, or if the short sale property is at risk of default by the bank..make sure you know this also as once the property is in notice of default the clock starts ticking for foreclosure and auction..your agent should keep an eye on that, also if the property is no longer being used as a primary residence- is the homeown'er's exemption gone and is there additional taxes owed that are not being paid.... more

Best thing to do is to contact support groups for parents with kids with autism in the area. I used be be very active in a group that addressed ADHD (which is on the autism spectrum), and the people involved in that group were--by far--the best resources in figuring out what schools were good, and which ones weren't, for kids with ADHD. You need to do the same thing: Get in contact with whatever organization represents parents with kids with autism or that other learning disability. Talk to them.
At some point, you should also talk to the school principal. But--again, and I can't stress this too highly--talk to other parents whose children are in the special ed program at Sunnyridge and to people in whatever support group or non-profit there is.
Hope that helps.... more
There is a lot of shopping and restaurants on Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard, 12th Avenue, and downtown Nampa. Two new shopping centers are just off the freeway at Garrity (includes Macy's and J. C. Penny) and Highway 55 (Karcher Road - includes Costco, Kohl's, Gordman's, Michaels, Olive Garden, etc.). Lowes, Home Depot, Shopko - so many options. Anything specific you are looking for?... more
I would be checking on property management companies in the area and see if they have anything listed that may work. I would also see if you qualify for Section 8 housing which helps pay your rent each month.
Good luck on your search.... more
There are many rumors floating around about there being a lot of bank owned inventory that may be coming on the market. However based on information I acquire from public sources at year end and at mid-year the bank owned inventory of single family residences on 0.49 acres and less has dropped substantially as of the end of June 2012. Notices of Default for Ada & Canyon Counties have also decreased significantly. The combined total of NOD's for Ada & Canyon Counties was 289 notices for the month of October of this year compared to a high of 949 notice for March 2010. NOD's have been averaging around 372 Notice per month since October of 2011. Based on the data I obtained the end of June 2012 there was only 62.6 Days of Single Family REO Inventory (134 Units) in Canyon County and 71.1 Days (229 Units) in Ada County had all REO's been been on the market on 7-1-12 (based on previous 12 months of REO Sales). I have been tracking this trend since year end 2010. If you would like a copy of my report summary please contact me.
