If you're referring to a bank owned property (or any property really) the answer is no. The bank doesn't want to rent it. They want to sell to a ready, willing and able buyer. Same goes for practically any other listing for sale right now. We are in a very hot seller's market. That means homes are selling very quickly, for top dollar.... more
Are you buying or selling? If you're the buyer, ask your agent to ask the listing agent for them. Per contract, seller is required to give you HOA docs. The title company can sometimes supply them too. If you are the seller....call your HOA management company.... more
LOL. Yeah...those sites really have zero to do with us "Lazy Realtors". Those sites are just advertising sites...to make money off us lazy realtors! Even Realtor.com! Their data is notoriously outdated and inaccurate. If you want the most accurate and up to date info...I'm sorry but you're going to have to deal with a lazy Realtor. We have access to the local MLS which is really the ONLY data source you should rely on. I work very hard for my clients to ensure they are receiving the best, most accurate listing info possible. I will check multiple MLSs (not every agent belongs to every MLS). In additional to that...I will turn over EVERY rock to find the right listing for my buyers. Even searching for "FSBO"s on Craigslist, or "Make me move" listings on Zillow...searching expired & withdrawn listings from previous years to see if maybe the seller might be interested in selling again....mailing letters to neighborhoods....even knocking on doors of people to see if they might be interested in selling.
So yeah...I don't really like it when someone lumps all Realtors into one category. In my mind...if you're a serious buyer, you should be doing a lot more work than just sitting at a computer and searching bogus "real estate" websites. You need to take the job seriously and hire a PRO. You need to find a REALTOR who will find the right house for you! There are plenty of us out there who are willing to work our butts off to find you the right house! :)... more
You can try to flag the listing under the more tab. Be aware that scams do exist; be mindful that such web sites are third party sites, they are not real estate companies and are used for advertising purposes; the information is fed by various sources, therefore data is not really verified. If you choose not to work with an agent of your own always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information--make certain they are who they claim to be. Never wire any money, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. For scam related information see link.
Your realtor should be telling you when the paper work is due to the new buyer. There are time frames in which different paper work is due. Its best to give documents like that as soon as they can be given, this way there is no surprises down the road that upsets the buyer and makes them walk away... also have a real estate attorney for the details when it comes time to sign contracts so your protected.... more
This is definitely year around living.....but we have four seasons and you need to be prepared for that in all of your activities. Today I left the house in a light jacket and by the time I returned home it was pouring snow! Springtime in the Rockies!... more
Very simplistically, the difference is that the owner or seller is the bank. Some, all or none of your rent payment goes to the loan or down payment, interest rate is typically higher for a rent to own, you would usually have less documentation process with rent to own. Often a short term arrangement until you get a standard loan and purchase. And, if you default often there is no credit reporting. Its important for you to seek legal counsel to review the documents at the very least. You do not own the property, you are renting.
With a "typical" mortgage, buyer goes through purchase process and lending process and once you close on the sale, your payments go to the mortgage. If you are late, or default, the credit reporting process proceeds as with any other default. On the upside, if you pay well and stay on track your credit report gets stronger showing that you are able to handle your debt well. But, you own the property.
With a rent to own the owner sets the rules with a typical mortgage the lender and govt sets the rules and regulations.
If the owner has a loan on the property and enters into a rent to own or "owner carry" type situation, his lender can call the note due. Again, seek legal counsel as you need to protect yourself in case the seller is less that honest.... more

how close is this location to Florissant?This question was asked from http://www.trulia.com/property/1051243272-23-Spruce-Cir-Florissant-CO-80816?ecampaign=con_day_propertycomp_bk&eurl=www.trulia.com%2Fproperty%2F1051243272-23
Not sure how you end up with asking this question.... may be you tried to list your home which is for sale by owner on Trulia, you can not, only licensed Realtor and Brokerages with listings on their MLS can list homes for sale on Trulia.
URL for a property, is the individual internet link to the property listing!!!
You really should work with an experienced local Realtor to market and sell your property.....
