Sally is correct, Trulia does not accept FSBO listings. There are sites that do, but if you posted here and on every other site that allows you to, you won't get the level of exposure that listing with a great local agent and appearing on your local MLS will get you.

A great agent is worth more than their commission, but a bad one or none at all can cost you way more than just a commission. Consider discussing your options with someone worth working with and then do whatever you feel is in your best interest. Best of luck however you proceed.

Yes! There are lenders like myself that are able to do loan without social security numbers and with ITIN. These types of loans have been used for people in your specific situation. I recommend that you speak with a lender like myself that would be able to do this for you. I would be glad to speak with you to help you get started on a loan for your new home. Well I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

Hello Bonnie,
You can contact the town of Manor's building department to determine if the plans are there as the plumber may have had a permit for the addition.
It's possible that the name of the plumber is on file there who performed the work so that you can contact him about the drawings if the building dept doesn't have them.
Good luck!

Yes the Manor area will appreciate. As a long time Realtor in the Manor area, I know the appreciation. Although you will get higher appreciation out west be it NW or SW, Manor will go up in value. You get what you pay for. Manor's prices are still excellent in comparison to those on the west side. Manor is very close into Austin and for the money, you cannot beat the price and distance relation.
I have sold to home buyers as well as investors. All have done well when they decided to sell. Listen to a local knowledgeable Realtor for the real low down on each area.

Anna M Brocco answered:
You can call any realty office(s) and ask for comps--a free service provided by most agents or you can hire a licensed appraiser. As for the loan--why not visit with any qualified loan officer(s), see what your budget can handle, look at your credit score and determine the best options for you. ... more

I office in Manor on Hwy 290 East and have for many years and am therefore very familiar with the area. If you would tell me the exact location of your home, I could give you a more accurate price in which to ask should you decide to put your property on the market. You are under no obligation to sign with me even if I give you a market analysis of your property.
As most of the answers to your question mentioned, the value of your property is most definately and directly tied to it's location...whether it's in the town or in one of the many subdivisions surrounding downtown.
Please don't hesitate to call me with any question.
Thank you.
Jackie Burke, Realtor

Britta Hinze answered:
You cannot roll money you owe on one property into a new loan on a different property.

Please contact your current mortgage lender to see if it is even legal to do a lease purchase of your home to a new buyer. If you are not allowed and proceed with a wrap mortgage or lease purchase and your lender finds out they can call your note to be paid in full immediately and you could lose the house to foreclosure if you can't pay off the note. ... more
