For the most part it is not required and in some cases prohibited. On the other hand there are some instances where disclosure is required. Example: violent crime caused death. It's worth receiving the specifics from the Texas Real Estate Commission. ... more

Does your Mom have a will? Does somebody have Power of Attorney to act on behalf of your Mom? If your Mom did Estate Planning or has a will, you can contact that person and ask what will happen when your home is sold. ... more

If your home is currently in foreclosure or you have been served a notice of liens, you need to learn that this type of information is PUBLIC! You may hate it and feel like it's nobody's business BUT if it's public information, your county does allow real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. to publish this information.

There are states (Texas for example) and /or counties that do not disclose home information to the public and real estate websites cannot publish anything about your home. However, your county does allow it.

What you can do is request your county remove your home address from their public information database. There is no guarantee but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Unfortunately owners like you need to think of all the consequences that will happen before making decisions that will end up bad. Your foreclosure could have been prevented easily. You could have sold your home and rented instead but you refused to do it, so a foreclosure is your fault.

Yes you can purchase a home anywhere you want. Since my husband is a retired teacher & I was a realtor, I know first hand that 90% of realtors are stupid and don't understand that retirees CAN qualify for mortgage loans OR pay for their new home with cash.

Lenders do understand that retirees income is either pension, Social Security and/or investments and savings. All of these sources of income counts towards buying a home but all realtors think of as income is a job. Therefore, to get past the ignorant agents, you will need to have a pre approval from a lender OR a statement from your financial institution if you are paying cash for your new home.

Final tip: Don't let realtors tell you what type of home may be more suitable for you. Stick to what you are qualified for. Agents are goood at twisting the truth to benefit them.

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to contact regarding your request to remove your home from Trulia. We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia.

I have removed the photos of your property instead. Please see the link below.

Please don't hesitate to reach back out to me should you have any questions or if there is anything at all that I can assist with.

Thank you for using Trulia!
