Hi,

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.

However, the photos and property description have been removed from our display on your behalf.

Thank you for using Trulia!

U.S. median size of new homes built now is 2,430 SF, Los Angeles' new homes are only at 1,800, according to PropertyShark.

Average lot size is a bit more difficult to find.

Hello Stephanie, you will have to ask your case worker if they offer the Homeownership Voucher program in your county and state and if you qualify.

We have that program here in CA but I am not familiar with it in other states. You may do some research on the web reference link below. Good luck. ... more

Hello Sandi, how long has he been self employed and does he have cash flow going thru his bank accounts? He may qualify for 12-24 month bank statement programs for self employed.

You may consider going on the loan with him as a non occupying co borrower and your son the borrower and you may consider 5% down. There are variable loan program choices as FHA financing in MD may go as low as 550 fico score. Check out the web reference link below... ... more

Hello Edmjf0816, yes depending on what type of loan you have on it and the status of the mortgage. As long as the mortgage is in good standing and not behind on payments because if it is behind on payments it would have to be an arms length transaction.

There are many options to do this even from a minimum 500 fico score. Check out the web reference link below...

Why rent to own if you may qualify to buy and own. Most rent to own are risky and want 10-15% down which is non refundable as well as annual increase in rent until you qualify. You may already qualify to buy with FHA financing. FHA financing allows old collections on your reports.

If you have low fico score between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA. If you have a minimum 620 fico score you may consider 3% down conventional.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. 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 purchase.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications. Lenders can not discriminate by past criminal history. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in TX. Check out the RENT vs BUY web reference link below...

Hi,

The price history data we display on a home is generally reported from each property's respective county records which are gathered by a third-party data collector. Because this data is considered the public record, I am unable to edit the information. When discrepancies are identified in county records, the third party data collector corrects this information and forwards it to Trulia.

Please be assured the information will be corrected on our Trulia display in next data collection cycle. Data collection cycles typically occur up to twice a year. Unfortunately, I am unable to expedite this process.

If it is already correct through the county, this will update to Trulia once we receive that information. Rest assured that we are working towards building a better tool for the future that integrates the data between Trulia and Zillow to ensure both sites display the same information. I really apologize for that although there is not yet a specific time frame for when this will be implemented we are working on this as quickly as possible.

Again, I am sincerely sorry for the trouble regarding the erroneous information for your home. I definitely understand this is a frustrating process, especially to have to wait for the next data collection cycle. Please be assured this is only temporary and our developers are looking for ways to improve the tools and capabilities we have to edit information on our display.

Hello Scottd30, why rent to own if you can buy to own? Rent to own are scarce and risky and want 10-15% down non refundable. Do you have 10-15% down? What type of credit issues do you have?

If you have low fico scores between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. 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 you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.
