Walk away. Fedx don't own the property and neither does he. Real landlords can be reached, seen and touched. Some have lock boxes on the door and you only need a code to view. Most are realtors and are accessible. Don't be fooled by the easy to obtain or the too good to be true. ... more

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to

Many things determine how much your payment will be but it is an easy question to answer once you talk with a mortgage professional. I would need a complete loan application which would include running your credit and the property address. With that information, I would be able to give you a pretty good idea of what your monthly payment would be. Payments are determined by loan amt, interest rate, property taxes. Interest rate is determined by your credit score, the debt to income and type of loan.

Applying only takes a few minutes over the phone. Feel free to call me at CrossCountry Mortgage anytime. 630-423-2600 or email me at I'm licensed in IL, IN, WI and CA. We are a direct lender that can do loans with credit scores of at least 580. Or maximum allowable debt to income is 55%

Don't waste your time trying as your home needs to be listed with an agent to be posted on trulia.

I know they don't make that very clear, and you're not the first person (probably not the last, either) who has questioned it.....

Try - they accept for sale by owner listings!

Best wishes....

Please consult an attorney with your question. However, a local Realtor could advise you whether a certain home has sold in your market area.

Good Morning Kimberly,

Congratulations on taking this opportunity to look at purchasing your first home. You are correct that a lot of times people find that buying a home is cheaper over the long run than renting. Now is the perfect time to look at purchasing your first home. Home prices and mortgage rates are still very low and there are grant programs available to first time homebuyers that can help you with down payment and/or closing costs.

Your will first want to meet with a experienced mortgage lender to get preapproved and find out how much home you can afford. A experienced mortgage lender will also review your income, credit... and show you what mortgage program will best fit what you are looking for. After getting a preapproval you will be ready to start working with a realtor and finding the home of your dreams.

I am a mortgage lender with a community bank and have over 15 years of experience. I also have numerous mortgage products available that can help you find the best mortgage to fit your situation and put you in the home of your dreams.

Please contact me at the below phone or email if you have further questions or would like to meet to start the preapproval process.

Good Luck,
