Hello,

Upon further review of your property page, I see your property is in 'Public Record' status. This means your home is off the market and for informative purposes only. 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.

Please be advised the image you are seeing is provided to us from Google images of which we do not have the ability to edit or remove. My recommendation would be to contact Google to request they blur out your home. Please feel free to use these steps:

How to get your property blurred:
1. On your Trulia Property Page, click 'View Map'.
2. Click 'Street View'.
3. Click 'Report a problem' found on the bottom right of the photo.
4. Fill out the form.
5. Click Submit.


For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

If your credit is good and you have sufficient income it shouldn't be difficult at all. Work with a real estate professional experienced with VA buyers. I currently am working with a buyer using his VA loan and the contract was structured to where he will not be out of pocket anything. ... more

Great question - it all depends on what the contract says. It should state right in the new build contract whether you have an attorney approval contingency, home inspection contingency, etc. Consider using a real estate agent with experience negotiating new builds (like us!). It won't cost you anything, and you'll have someone with experience in this area looking out for you.

Thanks,

Another option, if you are unsure of the actual square footage, is to have an appraiser measure the house. It shouldn't cost much, and can give you a more accurate square footage than just guessing. Let me know if you need some appraiser referrals.

Lucy I would agreee with Anita on the Rent depending on whatt you have in the unit but make sure oakbrook will allow you to rent before you purchase as an investment and also consider what the HOA fee's are as well as the pet policy, do your homework before you buy or ask an Agent to assist you with the process. ... more

Hello Sue,

Typically, the first step to purchasing a home is determining what you can afford by consulting a mortgage professional. However, unless you know the value of your property and what you may net from its sale, they will be limited in how much they can help you.

So, since you are looking to downsize and pay down debt, I would suggest the following steps as a possible course of action:

1. Determine the current market value of your property.
2. Estimate the amount of cash you may net from the sale of your property.
3. Calculate the amount you have left over after paying down debts.
4. Discuss what you are looking for in a new home.
5. Determine if we can find houses that meet your desired criteria and fall within your price range so that you may purchase in cash.

If it turns out that you are not able to purchase a house that meets your needs with the cash available from the sale of your current property, then you will need to consult the mortgage professional to see if you qualify for a mortgage that can help you make up the difference.

Please feel welcome to email, call or text me with any questions you may have or to schedule an appointment so I can meet with you to discuss your situation in more detail, learn about your current property and what you are looking for in a new home, and determine if I may be the right real estate professional to help you through the buying and selling processes.

Thank You & Have a Great Day!
Danielle

Disney Dork,

You have received alot of very good answers for why the seller could have put the property on the market now.

The most logical and self explanitory one is that the seller decided that now was the time to do so. Speculation as to the seller's motivations is just that, speculation and is in reality a moot point. ... more

If you don't plan on using an agent, consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate. In order to best protect your interest consider working with an agent; keep in mind that your house is your home. Emotions are homebound---selling your house is a business transaction. In a business, a professional is able to best to protect your interests. A real estate professional is better at selling your house than you could be at selling your home. ... more

Deal with an investor, they are more willing to offer more options.

Lease-to-Own and Seller Financing may be options if your credit score is not perfect but your income is enough to cover the monthly payments.

Ask me if you have questions,

Hello househuntin,

Great question and thank you for posting it here. My colleagues offer some great insights. My recommendation would be to contact a handful of mortgage groups and get some direct feedback from them. They will take a look at your credit and factor in elements such as you/your parents debt/income ratios and provide you some feedback on what might be doable. It is also a nice step in the home search process to understand what your pre-qualified for and what you would need to bring to the table in terms of equity to help establish a budget for the purchase.

I would be happy to simplify the process of contacting various mortgage providers. Let me know if your interested and thanks again for posting the question.

Elaine Heged…, Real Estate Pro in Depew, NY

Elaine Hegedusich answered:
I believe one of the reasons is the actual square footage of these homes...these are very large homes and unless a buyer has need of such a large home, they will not be interested. The size of the homes also puts them in a higher cost bracket...again, if a buyer cannot bear that expense, they are not buying these homes. My experience with buyers lately is that they are looking for smaller, more manageable homes, with lower maintenance costs, overall. Certainly nothing appears to be "wrong" with them. ... more

J answered:
There is no monetary benefit to you having auto or HELOC debt. First, the key is knowing what is considered good debt and bad debt which affects your credit score. You are paying auto interest monthly---do you get any return on that money? HELOC---are you receiving any return on that? The choice would be a matter of what are you getting back in return in your pocket to hold certain debt.

You may want to substaintially pay down or pay off the auto loan then work toward the same on the HELOC---whichever has the highest interest rate. Continue to sock away as much as possible toward your home purchase budget. A lot can happen in your life within 18 months. Being free of debt and those payments when times get tough should be a part of your overall plan as well. Good to luck to you!
