Realtors cannot answer this question because it violates Fair Housing laws. Buyers need to do their own research regarding crime, demographics, schools, etc. For crime statistics, the best thing is to visit local police departments and ask them. ... more

Hi Pt,

It may be possible with an FHA or VA loan (if you're an eligible veteran) as long as you're at least 12 months into the plan & have made all of your payments on time. In addition the BK trustee has to approves it & you need to qualify from a debt to income ratio standpoint as well as minimum credit score required. The other big qualifier is what the current standing is of the existing mortgage.
For example: If the mortgage reports on credit that you were 120 days or more late, lenders consider that the same as a foreclosure & requires at least a 3 year wait to be eligible for an FHA mortgage.

The best thing you can do is have a lender review your "file" to see what options are available to you.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Yes, absolutely. Check out "Las Vegas Future Floors". The phone number is 702-445-7851 and their email is

Ask for Eric Jorden, the owner. They do excellent work. I personally listed and sold a home which had been rehabbed by this company. They compete with Home Depot, and Lowes on pricing, but the quality of work is much better and they do everything, not only flooring.

If you have additional question you can contact me direct.

Hi Brent,
Did you sell your townhome yet? If you haven't consider using a flat fee service broker to keep the most equity in your pocket. I researched several in the Las Vegas area and sold my home (2 actually) with Vegas Flat Fee. Enrique was great, gave me the comps on my property and assisted me all the way through. My properties received maximum exposure and sold within weeks even though one of them had a long term tenant. I am so impressed with this guy and his service, check him out of you are still looking ... more

These are called bandit signs. Each local municipality sets their own restrictions about bandit signs. Check with the local municipality in the specific area. And in my experience they are going to tell you absolutely no bandit signs. Good Luck!! ... more

Robert Adams answered:
Are you dead set on a "new" home? The better values tend to be with resales.

I would be happy to discuss the market with you further and explain why people that bought in 2012 as a new home are now short selling their homes. This is compared to resales that were purchased in 2012 and are now cashing equity checks for huge appreciation gains during the same time periods.

I tell my clients if you want a new home then I will assist you getting it done but my best advice is to go with resales. Please contact me to discuss.

Hello! I am probably just an embryo in the whole real estate world with just 6 months since I got my license lol and I love it so far. I am glad to hear that you are ready to make the career change, which means you have done a lot of research in this industry. When the market crashed couple years ago, almost half of realtors all over the country have dropped their license because there was no money to be made but the other half survived by having the knowledge and working 10x as hard now. So that piece of history just shows how it can be again and made me wonder how to be a survivor. In my experience so far, I have gained a lot of knowledge just being around successful top producers that make real estate their FULL TIME career. Just by assisting them with papers, answering phone calls and going with them to show their clients houses to the point of a "smooth" closed transaction has given me a lot of respect to real estate agents. I put the word smooth in parenthesis because it's sometimes rare for a transaction to be smooth because anything can literally happen. It can be very stressful at times but the reward is so much greater. Being a realtor can also be expensive so know all your costs and due dates. Once you're licensed treat it as your own business, I see you are from California so you might have different laws than Nevada. Know the law so you don't ever get in trouble. Knowledge is power, read online or the newspaper on the real estate market daily. Most people (like me) get into real estate because you can make a lot of money, which is true BUT that is if you have certain connections or simply get lucky, then again if you want a lot of money you are going to need a lot of knowledge- I recommend teaming up with a reputable top producing broker/sales agent to teach you everything you need to know. Again, this is your business, have a game plan and DO IT! Focus on Leads Leads Leads & Best of Luck ! ... more
