Hello,
Listings are sent to Trulia through a variety of feed sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party feed providers, or directly from an MLS. Edits to your listing on Trulia will need to be updated at the source of the listing. Since I do not have the address of your listing I am not certain where it is syndicating to Trulia from.
If your listing was posted on Trulia through Zillow Rental Manager, which is a partner site that syndicates listings to Trulia and other websites. You can remove your listing from Trulia by removing it from Zillow Rental Manger: http://www.zillow.com/rental-manager. You can deactivate your listing by clicking on Expire on the Listings page or by using the button at the top right of the listing's review page.To permanently delete your listing, click on Delete Listing at the bottom of the listing's left-hand navigation bar. This will erase all data for the listing.

Your listing will remove from Trulia within 24 hours once you expire it from Zillow.

Thank you for using Trulia!

One other thing to do is call each of your debtors. I have found some if you are straight up with them can figure ways for you to have lower payments. Many people today are going thru difficult times so companies have had to look to alternatives vs. having someone go into bankruptcy and they loose everything. ... more

I do not suggest doing lease purchases. There are simply way too many things that can go wrong with one from either side.

In order to do true owner financing, the owner must own the property free and clear of any mortgages. Very few sellers are going to be in that position.

If the property currently has a mortgage on it, the owner cannot legally transfer the title to a buyer without the mortgage first being paid in full. Most all mortgage loans have a due on sale clause. This due on sale clause requires that the mortgage be paid in full should a title transfer occur.

The buyer is also at great risk on a lease purchase transaction should the seller quit making their mortgage payments. Right now, many sellers cannot afford to make their mortgage payments or simply chose not to continue making them. I have seen where the buyer is making their rent payment, but then the owner is not paying the mortgage. The next thing the buyer knows is that the home is in foreclosure. That means the buyer will generally not get back any of the money they have given as earnest money or security deposits.

It is also a big risk on the buyer. If your credit is not where it needs to be now, there is no possible way of you knowing it will be acceptable in a set amount of time.

Before entering into any type of agreement like that, the buyer needs to make sure that they fully understand the potential pitfalls that could arise. Should the seller default on the mortgage, the buyer could lose ALL of the money that they have invested. Until you are able to purchase, renting is generally the safer option.

Hi Dwayne,
Real estate agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a real estate agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a real estate agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:
www.crimereports.com

www.familywatchdog.us/

www.neighborhoodscout.com

www.greatschools.org/

www.schoolmatters.com

Madison Ridge was first established in 2007; townhomes of 3 bedroom 2.5 bath and 2 car garage. Highest price was sold in 2007 was $216k.
Community is under new construction again and 2 current listings in prices of $160k and $165k are available. No amenities like swim or tennis but $85 per month is required for lawn maintenance.
Good location in Norcross, easy access to I-85, near by shopping and great schools.
I will be glad to send you a link,

There are many rentals in 30071. However, there are also many really nice homes. You can get a really good deal on a large home. If you have kids in middle school, the school may be a problem. But high school is very good. Lots of private schools if you prefer those. The location is great. Easy access to I-85 and I-285. Great shopping is close by at the Forum as well as good restaurants. Also Historic Norcross is close by and has nice community events and Farmer's Market. The restaurants there are not fancy, but they are unique and quaint and certainly good for dinner or lunch and not pricey. ... more

Assume the worst and either move on or hope for the best. In a situation where a portion of the community is built but things are standing still, I advise my clients to pass. There are way too many variables in play and developers will tell you whatever needed to get you to buy.

Move on, you don't want to be in a bad situation down the road.
