Carols answer is the worst! First of all there is no setting as she refers to it. There is a header "setting" that falls under the more tab. All else she refers to doesn't exist! At least I couldn't find any of it. And I'm quite familiar with UX .... I'm finished with the app. It's a POS. Use Zillow. much much more intuitive and transparent. The fact that Trulia has done nothing to allow its users to delete and control alerts is A HUGE FAIL. ... more

Sean,

Just checking to see if you found a new home yet in the Suffolk area. If not, you may be want to take a look at our new home communities- The Riverfront at Harbour View in north Suffolk and Founders Pointe- located in the Carrollton area of Isle of Wight County located 10 minutes up Route 17.

I'm happy to assist you in any way if you'd like to compare building a new home versus a resale home. Our lot prices start at $85,000 in Founders Pointe currently and $120,000 in The Riverfront.

Good luck in your new home search.

This is possible but it depends on others factors as well. These factors include your employment, credit scores, debt, assets, liabilities, etc. If all of these financial details are in place it is definitely possible. The best way to figure this out and to not have to put your financial information all over the internet is to speak with a lender directly. There are lenders like myself that would be more than willing to speak with you to help you get the loan that you need. Well I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 brian.nguyen@nafinc.com ... more

I feel that you do need an attorney, along with an experienced agent. There are a lot of documents that the bank will want you to sign. Depending on your loan, you may be asked to sign a promissory note. I would suggest talking with a few agents and definitely consulting an attorney. Feel free to call me if you have questions. ... more

Hi vmhill,

You are not alone with your question. Real estate professionals are asked something similar every day. The truth is, it really depends on your individual situation combined with the willingness of one bank versus another to finance your new loan. You may receive a dozen denials before finding a loan officer who will even sit down to discuss it with you. I obviously cannot make magic happen, but there is a section on my website titled, "What the heck is a Short Sale?". My suggestion would be to take a moment to read it and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. I have quite a few contacts with loan officers who service Suffolk buyers. The web address is listed in my signature line below.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi jeanterri1,

I remember that you were interested in 260 Copeland Rd. As Bob stated, that one is no longer on the market. However, there are quite a few similar properties available in Suffolk. Let me know if I can help you out at all.

Lori Jeltema answered:
Robin, this home is listed for rent. If you would like the name of the rental office, feel free to email me. The owner's name is in the tax records and not really information that agents should be giving out. If you need details on renting, the agent can help you with that. ... more

Hi Andrew, There are different options out there but you really need to talk with a good lender.

If you are eligible for a VA loan, for instance, the seller may be able to pay off a certain percentage of your debt.

Feel free to drop me a line (call/email/text) and I'll be happy to see if you can get things going on a purchase.

Lori

Unfortunately you are dealing with a loan officer that seems to be a bit incompetent/inexperienced. He/she is apparently not qualified enough to perform some simple math to determine what your debt ratios were well before you were pre-approved.

It's sad to say but there are a lot of lenders out there that will haphazardly issue a pre-approval letter without completing any due diligence. They let you the client spend money on earnest money deposits, inspections and appraisals without having a clue if you will even qualify. Happens every day.

I am sorry to hear that you have to deal with such frustrations but I hope you will eventually accomplish your goal of becoming a home-owner. In the meantime you need to familiarize yourself with a proper Pre-Approval. Take a minute to read this: http://www.trulia.com/blog/elliott_r_oliva/2011/12/pre-appproved_vs_pre-qualified_what_s_the_difference

For questions or concerns please contact me at your convenience. Thank you and best wishes!

Hi S.

It depends on when you bought, how much you paid and other factors. I live in Suffolk. If you want me to run some numbers or take a drive by, let me know.
