The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this I am unable to edit the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and only updates on Trulia when discrepancies are identified at the next data collection cycle. Unfortunately, we are unable to expedite this process.

You have the ability to edit your home facts that appear in the Owner Information section. Please follow these instructions on how to edit your home facts. This includes editing the number of bedrooms/bathrooms, square footage, home features, description and more.

Sign into your Trulia account. If you do not have an account, you must first register in order to update your home facts.
If you haven't already claimed your home, navigate to the property page, go to the "Edit Home Facts " button and verify ownership.
If you have claimed your home, click on the same "Edit Home Facts" button to update your home facts.
Make sure to select Publish Updates at the bottom of the page.

Hi John,

It is common that the apr is a lot higher than the rate for FHA. Since APR takes into account the total cost to borrow money, things like mip can really bring it up. If your credit score is so high, I am aware of some other options for low down in Atlanta you may want to compare. Give me a call at 404-867-5662 if I can help.

Your agent should be able to manually correct the list price on Trulia through her account. If she does not yet have a Trulia agent account, they are easy to set up.

Hello. Very Awesome Family of four. Married couple with two respectful college aged children. One cat and one small dog shi tzu. We require hardwood floors,garage three to four bedrooms and we prefer a basement. Daughter is allergic to mold so we can't move to any homes with mold tendencies.

We are looking for a 24 month lease. Gated is a plus. Rental also between $1100 and 1500.00.
Please email ASAP. Our lease is up February 1st. Renting in prestigious gated community at the moment but need more space. Thanks for looking.

It is painfully obvious with a comprehensive and thorough CMA. The data speaks for itself. You don't have to sell it when it is in black and white.

Hello Katie,

Normally, you need 2 full years with increasing income trend.
You income will be averaged and your YTD will be looked at as well - to see the positive increasing income trend. The fact that your rent was twice as big as your future PITI is actually really great from the approvability point of view.

Hope this helps,

Robert A Whitfield Broker answered:
Good answers. Well to start with, the fact that it might be the "same home" is a far less important factor than, is it in a comparable "location" in each chosen city to the degree possible. There are great areas and less desirable areas in each city. Mathew is correct, no one has a crystal ball but when you are buyng a home to live in, you should buy what you like and use an expert to help you get the best deal possible. If you buy right in either of these areas you will do well because the best areas in each city are highly sought after and have some of the best schools in Atlanta which means you will do nicely over time. I prefer Roswell, and that is why I live there.

Whether you are a homebuyer or an investor, the only control you have on future values is to pick a good location, buy right, and maintain the property well - as all astute investors know, you make your money when you buy, not when you sell.

May I suggest that you both refinance the property together using both of your incomes. as long as both of your scores are over 620, and there are no other negative impacts to your credit profile, you should be ok. ... more

Faith Home Loans, Inc answered:
Yes, it's definitely possible!
Most lenders require 2 years from the discharge date. Your credit scores are excellent, minimum needed is 620. You have all the options at your disposal: FHA, VA, USDA, conventional loans. You can borrow no money down if the property is located in an eligible area.

I would love to work with you and get your pre-approved, but we only lend in Florida. So call a local mortgage broker, who will make sure all the numbers work in your favor.

Good Luck!
