According to our MLS system, it has not sold yet.
Shoot me an email directly if you'd like to talk about this further, I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.

The decision to refinance or not depends on the numbers. How long are you going to stay at your current place? What is your current rate? How much will it cost you to refinance? What are the savings?
Talk with a reputable mortgage person locally and they should be able to help you figure out if it makes sense for you or not... more
Interest rates are super low. Home prices are low enough that investors should see good Return on Investment if they are buying the right homes. I think this is a good time. But be prepared to compete with lots of other investors.
It sounds like you need a good Realtor to help sort through your options.

It sounds like you had a bad experience. The tendency is to generalize from one bad experience. There are plenty of legitimate people and propery on Trulia, and elsewhere - you just have to weed through things.
Trulia listings tend to stay on the site after they are in escrow - Realtor.com would give you more up to date information.
I would always ask whether a home is sold before cross qualifiying, etc. I get a number of emails every day asking if a property is still available -- that might be a good first question for you!
Here's hoping you find the good stuff.... more
You can go to your Registry of Deeds & they will have a record of the sale. Some Counties allow public access online as well.

It really depends on the current job and your previous jobs or education. I would start however by getting a copy of your credit report from Experian, Transunion and Equifax and see why your scores are low. You are entitled to one copy from each once a year. There are a number of things you can do to improve your scores which increase the likelihood of approval and improve your rate. You can dispute derogatory reports and pay credit cards balances down to 1/3 of their limit. Do not close any old accounts; this will lower your scores even more.
Your current scores would be acceptable to many FHA lenders; Wells Fargo is currently offering the lowest score options I'm aware of.
Best of luck.... more
You can check with your local police department to see if they have a website you can check on your own, and here is another site you can use to check - http://www.crimemapping.com/
It wouldn't hurt to touch base with your local police department to get context as well..

You need to look in an area that is zoned for horses. Mira Loma, Chino, Riverside, Norco and Corona come to mind. There are restrictions on how many horses per lot size so you will need to buy a home that has enough space for two horses.... more
The best way to get current, accurate, information on any property is to work with a Realtor. As Realtors we have many tools at our disposal (that we pay for, such as MLS, tax records, etc.) that the average person does not. Additionally, a Realtor who specializes in certain market niches might also subscribe to other services to enhance their ability to help their clients. I, for instance, also subscribe to a service that gives me relatively up-to-date information on foreclosures.
So, with all that information available to me, here is the most accurate information available at this time on 1359 Bennet St, Compton.
1. This home was last sold in an arms length 07/15/2003.
2. In 04/2005 a grant deed from the owner to the owner was recorded. On some sites this shows as a sale. My take is it was a refinance.
3. The home was refinanced again (twice) in 2006.
4. On June 24, 2009 the current lender filed a Notice of Default against the property.
5. On October 20, 2009 the house was "sold to the Bank" in the foreclosure sale on the courthouse steps.
What this means to you is, this home will soon come on the market as a Bank Owned property. The bank will list it with a local REO listing agent and any Realtor in the area will be able to represent a buyer who might be interested in purchasing the property. So, if you are interested in this home, your best bet is to connect with a Realtor who can keep an eye out for when it comes on the market. At that time you can make an offer and if it is strong, backed with all the information the REO Owner wants and timely submitted, you might be the new owner of this home. If I can be of any assistance in your search, please feel free to contact me. Dare to Dream.

For FHA loans, as long as the home appraises at your purchase price, you will finance 96.5% of the purchase price, in this case $197,825, and you will also add the Up front Mortgage Insurance Premium, which in most cases I believe is 2.25% of your loan amount or $4,451, giving you a total amount financed of approximately $202,276.
If the home does not appraise at $205,000, and instead appraises at $190,000, you will need to bring in $15,000 to start, then add 3.5% of $190,000, or $6,650, making your down payment $21650, which gives you a loan amount of $183,350, plus your Up Front Mortgage Insurance Premium of $4,125, giving you a total amount financed of approximately $187,475.... more
