Hi Pablo, your best bet is to interview a few top realtors in your area. How do you know they are top realtors? If you would like, I am part of a real estate company that can set you up with a top agents in your area. You can interview them before you decide. There is no cost for this service! Go to my website http://www. parkplaceconnects.com/ngomez for more details. Let me know if you have any questions. ... more

Hi,

I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I created a new ticket request to Zillow Consumer Care to remove the Foreclosure status of the property. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hi,

Unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Thank you for using Trulia!

I agree with you 1,000%. Now that I'm a retired realtor and life long resident in the NYC area, I can reveal the truth. The truth is realtors own the MLS system which has far more search filters than real estate websites do. We refuse to disclose certain information because we need buyers like you to call us for that missing information. If everything was disclosed online, there would be no need for you to call an agent and it would slow down their business drastically. For this reason, real estate agents refuse to give away information like: co-op maintenance fees, HOA fees for condos, whether pets are allowed or not in rentals, co-ops and condos, school district information, etc.

Since buyers like you are forced to call the agent for maintenance fees, it gives the agent the opportunity to convince you to work with them IF that agent feels you are a qualified buyer. You will be vetted since the agent will ask you a lot of questions to "screen you".

Yes, I'm guilty since I did the same thing when I was a realtor. Sorry, but in order to get paid, we need buyers to contact us. Now time for some tips / advice from a retired realtor:

Buying a home in Westbury / Nassau County:

1. Make sure you are pre APPROVED by a lender - not pre qualified. Big difference and agents will not accept pre qualified letters.
2. Make sure you have cash to pay your own closing costs + the minimum down payment for the co-op or at least 10% for a condo.
3. Be flexible. Buying a co-op or condo on Long Island is expensive - you're really paying for the good school districts like Westbury. Therefore, you need to keep your options open and know that you will NOT get everything on your checklist. You will need to sacrifice.
4. For co-ops and condos - make sure you review the financial reports for the building. Either you do it or your attorney or lender needs to do it. Do not close on a co-op or condo if the financials are in the red or there are financial issues. You will regret it. As a realtor, I know of many co-op and condo buildings in Westchester County that have financial issues. Red flag signs to look for: have there been frequent maintenance increases within the past 3 years? Are there any pending lawsuits or litigation matters? Have there been frequent personnel turnovers? Are there any projects pending which will require fee increases? Try to speak to residents and the super. Both will be willing to talk to you. Hang around the building during the morning rush hour and see who is willing to talk to you. If you need to work, do you have a relative, friend or somebody who can do it on your behalf?
