You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Now is a great time to sell your home! The Phoenix Metro market is one of the hottest markets in the country. We saw record increases in home values in 2012 and this strong seller's market is expected to continue. There are plenty of buyers, interest rates are low, and the winter visitors will be arriving soon! I am an experienced Realtor that can help you sell your home for top dollar. I have extensive recommendations on my Trulia.com profile so that you can see the quality of my work. You can see these recommendations by clicking on my profile. I would be happy to chat with you by phone, email, or in person and answer any questions that you might have. I look forward to hearing from you soon!... more
Sounds like you'd be a good candidate for NACA's first time homebuyer program. Check out their site: www.naca.com. There is no down payment and no closing costs. They do, however, require that you have some savings (reserves) to ensure that you won't slip up on mortgage payments (along with unexpected repairs and other emergencies).
Rent to Own options are often loaded with stipulations that can appear "scammish" (i.e. option to purchase deposit will be forfeited if you're late on a payment). Most likely you'll be charged slightly higher than market average rent (which they will often times justify by saying a portion of it will go towards the purchase price.) Moreover, the option to purchase is often a price that is higher than market average. Its often times just a clever way for these property owners to generate extra income at your expense.
Your best bet is to check out that non-profit (NACA) and once prequalified, work with an agent to find something within your budget.
Good Luck. I think you'll do well in the long run by purchasing rather than renting. You stated you're in a bit of a pinch and need to find something quickly. If you have no choice, then please avoid the rent to own route. Put the extra money you'd be spending on that option into your bank account and work towards owning for less.... more
Did you buy the house at foreclosure auction or through the retail market? If you can provide more details, that would be helpful. Depending on the situation, you may have to serve them with a series of legal notices to push them out of the home.... more
Unfortunately, it's likely that agents don't see that as a worthwhile opportunity. All transactions are different, but essentially take the same amount of work on the part of the buyer's agent. On a $30K deal an agent would likely only get $800-1,000. If you have the money you might offer to pay the agent a "success fee" of another $1-2K or so on top of the 2.8-3%. Just a thought.... more
A cash buyer, if they want to, can close within a week or two. It's a matter of how fast can you get the title search and inspections done. The closing costs are pretty much the same but without the bank fees. Generally closing costs are between 2-4 % of the purchase price so I would imagine for a cash buyer it would come in closer to the low number there. You still need a survey, a home inspection, a title search and probably an attorney to close the deal.... more
I would like to help you, if you would like to send me some more specifics of what you are looking for, I can send you some information and listings. Please include what kind of financing you would be using. If you need help in that area I can help with that too.
I look forward to helping you.
There are no problems there, it is a big park, and a lot of the listings you are looking at have sold a long time ago, the info on Trulia is not up-to-date.

It just states that there is a 10 yr amortization on the loan. This will be a balloon payment in 5 yrs (means you will have to finance it in 5 yrs or pay it off). Not sure why anyone that can carry would do a lease purchase or option. (P&I) Principal and Interest.... more

It looks like there are a few areas in Apache Junction with single family gated communities. I was able find properties in Jacobs Ranch at Tomahawk & US 60, Meridian Manor at Meridian & Southern, Broadway San Marcos at Ironwood & Broadway; they all look like nice communities. If you would like more information on any of those communities please feel free to contact me. Have a great day!
