Linda asked:
My home was then foreclosed on and my realtor purchased my house with an LLC where his name doesn't appear as owner. Is this legal? It would seem similar to insider trading where your agent…

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!

If the Purchase Agreement has been signed/dated by both buyer and seller NO seller cannot accept higher offer. Executed Purchase Agreement has to be delivered to all parties. Then escrow is opened. The higher offer can be put in back-up offer position. If your escrow canceled for any reason then back up will be accepted. Keep in mind only after cancellation has been signed/dated by buyers/sellers.

Hello Happyanipals, it changed hands a few months agao. Are you looking for a home to purchase? You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Are you looking for an investment or primary residence?

The purchase in San Rafael start from 690k for 3bd 1ba single family home. If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent like myself can email listings to fit your search criteria.

Hello Emma, These links may assist you with crime statistics:

Are you looking for rentals or purchase listings? You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in many local cities. You may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses, less than first, last and security with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

The rentals in San Rafael start from $2,150 for 1bd 1ba apt at the Marin Gardens Apts. The purchase in San Rafael start from 259k for 2bd 1ba condo, from 299k for 3bd 2ba condo and up.

You may qualify to buy with less than first, last and security deposit of any rental with down payment and closing cost assistance programs. How much are you paying in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve?

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k. The CHDAP down payment and closing cost program can go up to 600k in high balance areas like San Rafael or San Francisco.

Do the CC&R's for you community allow rentals? The HOA documents decide the answer to your question "more" than your mortgage balance.

Hi Bijan,

You would want to work with a builder to verify that what you have planned would be buildable on a certain property and verify all the details, and then also ask for a cost estimate and a time estimate.

Kind regards,

Arpad
