Once you sign a contract, the deal is made. There's no negotiating once they start building.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Dora,

You would have to pay for what's called a flat fee listing service for your home to be on Trulia. You can easily post on Zillow, though.

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us out at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Hi Janice,

Your local MLS may not send data to Trulia and/or Zillow. I would ask your realtor if they know that their MLS is feeding Trulia. Hope this helps.

Hi, Rachael,

Some mortgage brokers would be able to make you a loan if you have letters from your new employers and/or a month's worth of pay stubs. It helps if your new jobs are in the same field as you previously worked.

I'd be happy to put you in touch with the loan officer I have worked with for many years. She has helped a lot of my clients in a similar situation. Just click my profile photo to contact me. And of course, I'd be happy to help you with your home search, too!

Best regards,

We share the same name! Buying a home is such an exciting time in your life. I have a lender that is excellent with getting you prequalified. It will only take a few minutes of your time to begin the process and I can have a prequalification letter in my hands and we can start looking for homes sometimes that very day! Make sure and find an agent that has time to meet all of your needs. I am that agent for you, I will be available to you 24/7 until we find that perfect home. Please call me at 6824446690 or email

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi Paul
Most of the HUD homes I've sold this way have turned out to be okay but I have heard a few stories that did not turn out so well.
HUD does make it's own rules and if they say no that is pretty much your answer.
Look closely at the price you are paying to see if repairing or replacing plumbing would be worthwhile at that price. Make your decision accordingly.
If I can help further you may contact me at:

Most likely it is. I can easily determine the taxes based on the address. For insurance, we can call an insurance CPA y who will provide free quotes based in the address and you personal information. This would take just a few minutes. If you would like me to help find your dream home or just help with calculations, then give me a call 8172664959.

Thanks Jolene Clarke REMAX

Bruce Lynn answered:

Let's talk about this and I can give you some of the pros and cons.
With a short sale, you better control the process.
Your credit will take a hit either way.
However you may need to save some money now, because in the future, landlords may ask for a higher deposit or first and last month's rent, etc
Short sale may also buy you more time to do this.

Don Groff answered:
If you do not pay the loan on time a lender can demand payment in full. Basically what they are stating is if you pay you stay. If you don't pay they can demand payment in full. This will never happen though. If you get behind you need to keep communication with your lender and let them know what is going on. Most lenders will work with you but if you break your contract by not paying on time they do have the right to demand payment in full or to initiate foreclosure proceedings.

Yes, things do happen in life but if you are worried you may miss payments here and there you may want to wait until your life is more stable. Buying a house should not be taken lightly.

Best of luck to you.
