You will have to visit a brokerage in person to get the history and bring ID because the agent will need to verify that you are the current owner. Any realtor can give you the history - they just need to verify your ID. ... more

I put a contract to purchase a condo in Lake Worth 10 days later I went back in to the unit to get a copy of the condo docs. The smell of the unit had me on the floor. The condo docs read
no money in reserves, it is on rented land & referred to condo as apartments. I immediately went home, the smell lingered on my clothes and car. I could still smell it once in my home. I just could not buy this unit. I am having a difficult time getting my deposit back. It has been 6 days. If I do not have my deposit back first of next week. I will contact DBR. Division of Realtors.

It depends on how things were worded in your purchase agreement. Most builders have something to the effect that if there are cosmetic issues you must still close and cannot force the builder to escrow money for the repairs. The roof is a different topic. My suggestion is to contact a local FL real estate attorney to review your contract and tell you what options you have open to you. ... more

I advise anyone purchasing any real estate to obtain title insurance. Especially when purchasing a property from a bank.

I suggest talking to a Mortgage Broker... not a Bank about getting a loan.
If you have established credit again, like a credit card, car payment ect... after your bankruptcy then you should be good to get another Mortgage.

Good Luck

Unless the seller has a recent survey available, I would definitely want one. Are you buying a lot in an existing subdivision, or elsewhere? If not in a subdivision, have you checked for scrub jays, which are an endangered species found in that area? If the lot is within a scrub jay habitat area it will be both difficult and expensive to get permits to build. Another question is utilities -- are they available at the street, or will you have to pay to run electricity in from another area? Running electricity to your lot can potentially run $20,000 or more. And I haven't as yet mentioned the cost of a septic system and well for water if water/sewer lines are not available. When buying a vacant lot it may save you time and money if you do your homework up front. ... more

I did a quick search for you in the MLS for similar homes and here are the results: Active listings (your "competition") are listed for $242,500-$340,000. Pending lists are listed for $300,000-$389,000. Recently sold listings, within the past 6 months, sold for $242,500-$325,000. The average marketing time for a home like yours, if priced at market value, should be on for 65-125 days. For a thorough market analysis, please call or email me so I can arrange to see your home and provide you with a more accurate estimate.

Best wishes!

Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more
