Beyond frustrated. The phone number hangs up on you and the webpage errors out with a 404 code. Our home is listed correctly on Zillow but OUR For Sale By Owner is showing agents and giving agent phone numbers and ours as the Property Owners isnt showing "AT ALL" In fact it shows the name and number to someone I have never heard of before. I need this corrected as its causing conflict. WE HAVE NO AGENT AND NEVER HAVE. How do I get this fixed immediately?... more

I pulled your listing on Zillow and Trulia. Zillow has it correct - no changes needed. On Trulia, if you look at the top (in gray lettering) it says 4 bedrooms 6 bathrooms but the wrong square footage.

Near the bottom of the listing in fine print, it states the correct number of bedrooms and bathrooms but the wrong square footage.

Time to speak with the Office Manager or Broker in Charge.... more
SSID is accepted as a source of income. However, you will need cash from savings for a down payment + cash to pay closing costs. If you don't have the cash available, you can't buy a home. In order to get financing from a lender, lenders will verify your income, savings, credit history and credit score, debt to income ratio and tax returns.
There is down payment assistance from your county or city or state but there are requirements such as a minimum credit score and you will need to take a home buying class. You can research and contact them. Closing costs can be negotiated with the seller but the seller can refuse. If the seller refuses, you will need to pay closing costs.
Finally, owning a home means you will need to pay the monthly mortgage, property taxes, homeowners insurance, utilities and your other monthly expenses. Typically, if your only income is SSID, you don't have enough to buy a home.... more
