You need to call the realtor and ask him/her to remove the picture. Trulia cannot do it. Also ask the realtor to remove the photo from all other internet websites it would be seen on (Zillow,, Craigslist, etc. ... more

Housing starts in the Unites States rose 6.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1172 thousand in April 2016, compared to an upwardly revised 1099 thousand in the previous month. The figure came in above market expectations of 1127 thousand, boosted by single-family housing starts. Meanwhile, building permits went up 3.6 percent, following a 7.3 percent drop in March, but lower than an expected 4.3 percent gain. Housing Starts in the United States averaged 1441.61 Thousand from 1959 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 2494 Thousand in January of 1972 and a record low of 478 Thousand in April of 2009. Housing Starts in the United States is reported by the U.S. Census Bureau.

There really is no way to get close to a number per square foot with out seeing the home, understanding what needs to be done, etc. Building costs for homes can range anywhere from $60-$200+ per square foot depending on many, many things. If you were to build a very simple, slab on grade, with minimum code requirements, I'm confident you could come in at the lower end of the spectrum.

Sally Grenier answered:
This sounds very confusing and I'm not understanding the situation at all. Keep in mind, it's impossible for anyone here to give you a clear answer since we weren't involved in these transactions. Regardless, I think it is wrong for an agent to not point out an error on the settlement statement (even if it did benefit you financially by $8K). It's still wrong! It wasn't your money. And then you needed $8K more to close on the new house? But she gave YOU a promissory note?? (so she owes you?) None of this makes sense. Is is possible you were buying a home that was listed with TRELORA (a reduced fee company)? Maybe they didn't pay your buyer's agent the industry standard, so she's wanting to get the rest of it from you?
Again, the entire story sounds very strange and fishy.

DONT DO IT! I' homeless right now because of Ocwen, Huzbu, Altisosurce, William Osbourne! I was bullied from the get go. They do not respond to question in a timely fashion but when they have deadlines to meet, you better meet them or else. The housing market is on fire in Spokane and when I was not sure that I could my financing on time as a result of not being able to get an appraiser scheduled, the told me I would have to pay300 for an extension and 100 a day for each day. Two months late here we are. They have extended the closing 3 times due to an issue with the Title. I have rented out my home effective Sept 1, Now I need to hire a moving company to put my belongings in storage, pay someone to clean and paint, put my dog in boarding and I indefinitely have NO ROOF OVER MY HEAD. They tell me I will not be compensated because it is not their fault. LIKE HELL, you do not put a house for sale if you don't have TITLE! The listing agent, William Osourne does not respond to any inquiries, help coordinate the sale with my realtor or anything else for that matter but will still get his share of the commission even though he has done nothing! OH yeah, get ready to pay closing, internet fees and a huge buyers premium whatever that is for?
You cannot get a hold of a living breathin human when you call OCWEN who I guess owns the

Joseph Rabiolo answered:
Hi Rich,

At closing, your title company will have her sign an 'AKA' form because the name on the contract will need to match what's on her title, her maiden name. If they are also providing title insurance, they may have her spouse sign a quitclaim deed to ensure he doesn't claim interest in the property later.

If you don't already have an agent, I would be happy to answer more questions for you or help you with your transaction. I've left my contact information below.
