Hi,

Please know the 'Edit Home Facts' feature is currently removed from all property pages. While we do not have a time frame for when this will be restored, I can assure you this is only temporary. Home facts on Trulia is coming from your county records. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and only updates on Trulia when discrepancies are identified at the next data collection cycle. Unfortunately, we are unable to expedite this process. Our best recommendation is to check with the county to ensure the information is correct at the source.

I hope the information I provided today was helpful in addressing your concern.

Thank you for using Trulia,
Angelica

I don't think your situation is really what some would call low income, but I know someone in a somewhat similar situation. Go to a local small bank, possibly a Credit Union where they keep the mortgage loans in house. They usually underwrite their own mortgages since they don't sell them and are more willing to listen to your actual situation instead of just your debt to income ratio and taxes. Good Luck and hopefully this helps in CA, I am in KY, so not sure what banks can do out there for you. You might also look into renting with your wife and not worry about buying for a while after your PHD program. ... more

I am Real Estate Closing Attorney. I specialize in For Sale by Owner Transactions in Florida. If you can do the entire transaction through your title agent why on earth would you pay 6% to a real estate agent or broker. In my experience real estate agents and brokers have caused so many problems. Even in one situation sabotaging a closing during a closing; why? I believe because, generally speaking, the brokerage profession is focused on driving sales, quickly and in volume. A quick answer is easier then actually doing work and then there is the issue of education, knowledge, including legal understanding, and industry involvement.

I handle the transaction from start to finish, even bringing in an associate attorney to deal with negotiations if need be so each side is protected. A one stop shop. Low fees, title insurance and abstracting, quick turnaround, knowledgable eyes on your deal from inception; it is a no brainer.

Happy to discuss any questions you may have. For sale by owner is the way to go in my opinion.

One reason for not putting more money down is if you can get more for your money on another investment, then it would be worth investing elsewhere even with the PMI.
