Right now in the MLS there is only one rental in Heron Creek for $1500 per month. No rentals available in the other communities. You may want to try a rental agency such as www.rentmeflorida.com or try rental web sites.

When finding a short sale agent, the same rules apply. Make sure the agent actually has short sale experience. Although a lot of agents have "certifications" in short sales, these are usually worthless, unless the agent has done and completed short sales in the past. You do not want to be a guinea pig.
Short sales only get tricky on the seller side, but buyer be aware. These deals can take time.
If you dont want to wait, you may want to consider buying an REO property. Statistically they sell for 30% less than retail, while short sales dont necessarily offer a better deal over a normal sale. Remember, the bank approves a short sale if the offer is close to appraisal value, which is 100% retail.... more
No, not unless you're a wholesale investor with millions of dollars to invest in a large portfolio of homes.
Otherwise you have to pay "retail" or show up at the courthouse with ALL CASH and take the risks of condition problems, title issues and liens that survive the foreclosure when the lender auctions it at the foreclosure sale. Some lenders will allow a sale below their final judgement amount. Again you must pay ALL CASH within 24 hours or less so if you're not an ALL CASH buyer this is not an option for you.
Bank Asset Managers will eventually list a property for sale and the more prudent ones will require a minimum 7 day exposure on the market to ensure they sell for the maximum price.
If NCUA is a credit union, you may be able to contact them directly but they would be foolish not to list a property on the open market for all buyers to bid...
All the best,
It is possible. Prices have started to move up since the inventory has gone down, but you can still get a nice home under $100k, if you move on it quickly. Now that word is out how affordable our area is, homes tend to get snagged soon after hitting the market.
I can set you up with a search feed directly from the MLS that all of the Realtors use that will let you know immediately when a home hits the market, or if there is a price reduction. Just let me know if that would be of interest to you.
Are you familiar with North Port and SW Florida?
A couple of years ago it seemed like there would be an excess of homes for sale in North Port for years to come, but there is actually very little inventory currently available.
Check out our Facebook page for more information on the market and fun things to do in Southwest Florida.

I also have a few blogs on my Trulia profile that may be of use to you when considering values on homes. That information is pertinent all across the country.

Have you spoken to a loan officer or mortgage broker? If so, were you denied? Getting approved for a loan is no longer a simple process these days and does require more than just excellent credit, particularly for a second home. if your debt to income ratios are too high or you do not have sufficient reserves (savings) a lender will consider it an extremely risky proposition. After the housing bust lenders have become extremely cautious about giving anyone a penny especially investment and second home loans - the chance of default is considered much higher than a primary home.
Good luck!... more
North Port is certainly a good idea and very doable. Once we start physically start looking aat properties and areas, then you can decide if North Port is for you.

Unfortunately, I have found less than accurate data at times here and with other MLS syndicators as well. You might imagine how hard it is to keep up with entire U.S. housing market. I usually direct my clients to use our website http://www.team1-realestate.com but that won't help you there. Best to hook up with a local Realtor who has a solid website like ours to find REO's or let them do the searching for you.... more
We are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice. With that said, here is an idea....
It's common practice for lenders to force place escrow for taxes or insurance if neither have been paid. The municipality or insurance company will send the mortgage company a notice that a policy hasn't been renewed or taxes have gone unpaid. Without knowing exact details of your situation or status of the property in FL no one aside from your attorney can really answer the question. Typically in FL if you have filed BK, the foreclosure is on hold until discharge is recorded and then starts up again. You may still be receiving notices from BoA because technically you still own the home and it has not reverted to BoA's possession yet.... more

Yes, you will find public sewers in the oldest section of town near US 41 and in the subdivisions like Heron Creek, Bobcat Trail, Cypress Falls, Cedar Grove, Sabal Trace, Charleston Park, Talon Bay and more. Most of the newer homes outside of developer's subdivisions and built in the last ten years or so are on well and septic. If you want to be on a search only for homes with public sewer, we can arrange that.

Thank you for your inquiry at Trulia! Yes, Avanti Circle is in the Jockey Club in North Port. There is an HOA fee too. The Jockey Club features a clubhouse complete with swimming pool and tennis courts. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Banks are strange actors these days. They are trying to minimize their losses, however, they don't really know the real estate market and often the asset managers (like many homeowners) hire real estate experts but then do not listen to the advice for which they are paying. So, they over price the house, then blame the realtor when the home won't sell. And then they allow the listing to expire and hire a different realtor thinking that will make the difference and get the home sold. It won't. There are certainly differences between realtors, as in any business. Some have a better marketing plan, some just plain work harder, but one of the biggest factors in getting any home sold is price and if the homeowner, whether it is an individual or a bank, will not price the home correctly no amount of hard work or marketing skill will get it sold. I have watched banks chase the downward spiral of home prices, all the while blaming anything and anyone other than their refusal to price the home according to market conditions, only to lose huge amounts of money.
The other factor, in our area at least, is the "days on market". Many homeowners, once their listing has become 'stale' will withdraw and relist their home in order to reset the days on market clock so the listing looks fresh. It doesn't really fool anyone, but it makes the homeowner feel better.... more
