I don't see it as listed right now. Are you the owner? If so, let me know and I can give you a sight-unseen estimate. Takes two minutes. Just need you to answer a few questions.

You may want to look at some foreclosures in the area, see if Fannie Mae (homepath) have any property that you can fix up in that area. You may want to look also in the nearby communities as well. There are good deals still available you are going to have to patient. Kennedy Network Realty ... more

Congratulations on your credit score! There are lots of other costs involved aside from the purchase price of property. The other costs to finance the property will well-exceed a $3K down payment. Be cautious if you think purchasing a house right now is the best choice for you. Good luck to you! ... more

Amanda,

By listing the home yourself and creating your own website, you may be missing out on positioning your home at the top of search engine results pages. I don't know about you, but when I search for something on the web I rarely look past the first page or two of search results. That's why all of my listings are "enhanced" on Realtor.com and Trulia. My listings will appear at the top of searches and are typically on the first page. You want to ensure the most buyers will see your home on the top websites, so you need to show up on the first couple of pages.

If you would like to discuss this further, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks and good luck,

Family in need is not a default exception to breaking a lease. Divorce or lost of main income often are, depends on the company or landlord. The best option is talking to the property manager directly, they may be able to create an exception to the rules for you. If everything fails, you can still help find another roomate for your inlaw.

Jim,

Yes, I believe your viewing the page adds to the number of total views. I work for Prudential Network Realty which is has an enhanced presence on a number of websites including Trulia. I am able to provide a weekly report to each of my sellers showing them the number of times their property was viewed on all of the websites where we have an enhanced presence. The report shows the number of times it was returned in web searches., the number of times buyers clicked on the property for more information and the number of times it was saved to buyers' portfolios.

I did a test where I searched for my sellers' properties and then saved some of them so I could see the impact. My activity was registered in the total numbers.

One of the seller's I worked with last year listed vacant land for sale in Green Cove Springs and I will tell you that it doesn't get that many hits on a weekly basis compared to residential homes, because the number of people looking for vacant land is much less.

Hope this helps.

Me,

I hope you are using a Realtor to represent you in this short sale as your buyer's agent. If you do have a Realtor, he/she should be in constant communication with the listing agent to understand what is happening with the seller's banks and when to expect each event to happen.

Having the first lender's approval is a very positive sign, but no deal is for sure until you get all lien holders' acceptance. Some second lien holders are not willing to accept minimal payoffs (usually less than $5,000 regardless of what is owed them) and can be impediments to getting a short sale approved. Some second lien holders will only grant a lien release and not a full forgiveness of debt which may cause a seller to back out of the contract because they can not obtain the debt relief they are seeking (a lien release allows the property to be sold but does not forgive the sellers of their debt and they must sign a promissory note to pay the debt in full in the future).

As noted below I would not give up your apartment without knowing 100% that your deal will close by the time your lease is up. You should do everything possible to negotiate a month to month extension of your lease to ensure you have a place to live (if the deal falls apart you may be months away from finding another home to move into).

If you are not being represented by a Realtor as a buyers agent then you are pretty much at the mercy of everyone else in the process.

Good luck, and I hope you close by the end of the month without difficulty.

I am apparently the only one on here who is NOT a real estate agent! So, I guess I can give you an unbiased and (hopefully) complete answer. I currently live in Jacksonville (nearby) but my spouse works in the middleburg area and my kids go to school there. We are looking forward to moving out there soon ourselves, and are happy at the prospect of raising our kids there. From what I see, it is a small-town atmosphere, with all of the small-town perks, but with the small-town pitfalls too of course. You have access to all the city has to offer with a small drive, but you're far enough away to avoid it if you'd like. I think you'll like middleburg. So far, I love what I've seen! ... more
