Kathy Kochanov, There are a number of units for sale which are located on Benjamin Franklin Dr. None are the unit in question. This unit does not show up as a distressed property. If it did, it would be listed at or near current market value.

The disclosed amount of $1.00 has nothing to do with the market value of the unit.

You can find foreclosures for sale at the Clerk of the Circuit court of each county in Florida. You can bid on these foreclosures. It is buyer beware and if you win the bid you will have to pay in full at the end of the business day.

Good Luck

Gatr796, If your accounts are 100% on time then you have other compensating factors that are dragging them down.

1.) If you have a revolving credit account, and the maximum limit is $5000 and you carry a balance of $5000, then this will impact your credit scores.

2.) If you have a revolving credit account and you carry a balance due of 50% or more (based upon your maximum limit, then this can impact your credit scores.

3.) Too many new credit accounts.

4.) If you recently paid off/down an account this may drop your credit scores.

5.) If you had a prior bankruptcy which no longer shows on your credit and you have any slow pays this can affect your credit scores.

6.) Although you pay all of your accounts on time, what you owe (based upon all of your credit accounts) may be too high.

If you truly pay your accounts on time, 613 is a low score, there is something else impacting your credit history. You need a full trimerged credit report complete with scores, work history, address history and prior accounts.. This is approximately 20 pages.

Your question will prompt, lenders, mortgage brokers and credit repair specialists to answer you. This is a good way to find someone to help you.

Good luck,

Hi Kathy:

This is a pre-foreclosure and is not currently listed for sale in the MLS.

When you see a RealtyTrac listing on Trulia with no address, they have listed it by scraping data from the public tax assessor's website.

Here is a complete list of condos for sale on the beach on Lido Key:…

Why would you be interested in this property? It was foreclosed on November 26, 2008 and sold by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Association on January 9, 2009. I see no indication that it is currently offered for sale. It is a 991 square foot 2 bedroom unit, and the quarterly condo association fee is $1125.
