Robert Guth answered:
I just had a closing on Tuesday, and my Buyer said the same exact thing. He told me that he had reached out to 3 other agents online, and none responded. Then he reached out to me, I replied, got him pre-approved, took him looking at homes (we looked for 3 months! ugh), and he now owns his first home. So I don't know why other agents would be so complacent. But, thats what I am here for, and why I have a 100% satisfaction rating on every real estate site, and have yet to have an unhappy client. Its called work, and here in the south, I was raised where work meant work.

Alan May answered:
So, here's a thought.

Instead of randomly click on that "contact an agent" button... find a local agent to represent you as a buyer's agent... and let them contact the agents.

Or, you could just call one of the agents on the telephone. ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore inform yourself well in advance of your search, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate before considering the idea and or before signing any agreement. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

Realtors are not lawyers and can't give legal advice. Short sales do come with an addendum and arms length transaction form that you as the buyer must sign. Be very careful here and contact a real estate attorney if you plan on going through with this idea ... more

You should contact a LOCAL buyers agent who can help you with this. Cape Coral is complicated with regard to Well/Septic versus City Water/Sewer and whether the assessments are paid or not. Cape Coral is currently putting City Water and Sewer in certain areas with other areas next in line. Eventually the few areas remaining on Well and Septic will be put on City Water and Sewer with a cost to the home owner. Before purchasing a home on Well and Septic you should find out when City water and Sewer will be coming in along with the attached assessments so you can be sure it will not be a hardship ... more

Your question is coming up in the 33993 zip code which is in Cape Coral Florida, but it sounds like you are asking about NJ. Please clarify.

Terry McCarley answered:
If you are looking to get into property preservation in Cape Coral you will have some stiff competition from established and experienced vendors. Numerous property preservation vendors were established over the past several years when foreclosures were so high. Fortunately our foreclosure filings have dropped drastically so the demand for property preservation vendors has also greatly declined. ... more

Hi Stacey,
If you would like I can send you the listings that are available on our MLS. Once you take a look at them and pick out a couple, I can see what you will need to qualify. There are places out there that will work with you, they are just harder to find. Go ahead and send me what you are looking for and how much max. Look forward to hearing from you. ... more

Hi Kim,

You say you don't want to rent anymore but are looking for an apartment? Are you looking to possibly purchase a condo? There are many condo's on the market, specifically in Cape Coral (if you don't mind the short jot across the river) that you could purchase with monthly payments at or close to what you would pay in rent. Have you considered a FHA loan? I could help you any questions you may have and help you find a place to own rather than rent. Just email me at I would be happy to help you! ... more

Adolfo "A.D." Diaz answered:
Anything is possible...

There are many different channels you will need to send your info to, I would begin with a Google search on who are the main REO banks listing properties in the area and signing up with the proper companies. Many banks/asset managers issue work through service portals which vendors are vetted through a approval process.

Good Luck.

BUDDYBOY answered:
Hi! What happend was borrowers (mostly no money down investors) got loans from banks to fund construction of their homes and the banks over extended themselves and were ordered to shut down loans on homes that were over a six month lending period (construction was taking 18-24 months at that time). Hansen Homes couldn't continue to build homes without money and most borrowers couldn't get another loan to complete the projects. The builders didn't walk away from anything, they just couldn't continue due to the banks shutting down the construction loans. This happened to many builders at the time. The banks didn't pay them for the work they did and the borrowers were left paying on partial loans. Everyone got screwed cause the banks got greedy and gave loans to people who never should have qualified. ... more
