Hi Jennifer and Greg,

Trulia pulls its homes for sale information through Colorado's MLS, and licensed real estate agents are also able to be list properties for sale on this website. If you are working with a Realtor, he or she should be able to accomplish this for you. If you are not, feel free to contact me and I can talk to you about some other advantages of listing your home with a Realtor, including maximum exposure on the market.

I've left my contact information below for you to contact me if you please.

Sally Grenier answered:
Usually after the inspection the buyer can ask for seller to fix any issues. But the big question is how was this worded? If you were really vague in the request (i.e. seller to service furnace), then you may have an issue. I've learned over the years you need to be very specific when asking for inspection items, and make sure buyer and seller are all on the same page. If it were me, I would have said something like, " seller to have furnace cleaned, service and inspected by licensed HVAC contractor, and repair or replace as necessary". What does your REALTOR say?? ... more

Hi Amanda,

Have you considered renting your home instead of selling? The rental market in Aurora is very tight and good for owners.

If you're not already working with an agent who does property management, feel free to contact me and I can give you some more information on potential rental rates for your home and what keeping your property as an income producing investment might be like, My contact information is below.

Paul answered:
Unless you can find a home that shows it's not available until August (which I've yet to see), your not going to have much luck. The market is very much against renters in this area. Every showing I've been to has at least 7 other people looking & applying. Your probably best to start looking in mid June, most of the listed stuff now is available between June 1st and July 1st. Your probably not going to have any luck finding an owner who will let the unit sit empty for any length of time when there are 10 other applicants who can move in right away. ... more

Larry Brake answered:
Assuming your credit scores are within the required range for getting the lowest rates available, I think there is a very good chance you can achieve your stated goals of getting a newer house at a better rate.

Aside from credit scores, other variables include the age, location, size, and level of interior finishes and architectural features you'd like to have. There are brand new homes that have never been lived in that you may qualify for.

If you have some examples of communities you're interested, or are open to, I'd be happy to provide you with some listing information to give you an idea of what some of your options might include. If you're interested, please contact me at the number or email address below

Best of luck to you!

Robert McGuire answered:

This is a legal issue and not one that we as Realtors and without more specific information about your lease agreement. I suggest that you contact a real estate attorney to help you sort this out. Your solutions should be according the law, your lease, adn the advice you obtain from legal council. Not from the pressure and insistence from the 'friend of your parents'.

Most agents that have experience working with investors have references to prove it. I'd suggest asking for references to see just how investor friendly they really are.

J answered:
Congratulations...well, sort of. You will need to pay the HOA lien to get clear title on the home. Although I am not an attorney, I have purchased HOA liens to give me redemption rights. Without making it complicated, you owe the money or they can redeem. In Colorado, an HOA lien with a late fee becomes a super lien. Yes, it is legal. Buying a home at the Foreclosure auction seems very simple but Jr. Liens can redeem, including an HOA. It is kind of like a game of checkers and the HOA is king in this case, to jump him you'll need to pay. Hope this helps. Visit for a list of Short sales and foreclosures in Northern Colorado.

I think there is a pretty strong special taxing/metro district if you are price sensative check with the county or have your agent send you the information. I had a client who "almost" relocated from California and they were going to buy a house over there on Killarney- they loved the size and lot location. From what Sean says below yes Holiday went out of bussiness and it is an eye sore over there. There is also some other communities surrounding this area that I would advocate, such as Copperleaf and Sterling Hills, there is also Murphy Creek on the other side of C-470 and then down by Southlands Mall, there are some newer and new home sites as well. Many choices really- it will just depend on what you fall in love with when you get here :)

IF you are interested in foreclosures in this area make sure you visit my website-

Thanks and best of luck on your home search!

Hi Andy,

Welcome to Trulia Voices and thank you for your question.

I'm afraid it isn't possible to create separate lists within the My Saved Homes section of your Trulia account at this time, however this is a great suggestion and I'll share it with our team.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or feedback.

Best Wishes,

Ruthless answered:
I'd really like to know why someone gave Karin a thumbs down? The auction and redemption period may show up the same or different than a completed foreclosure on a person's credit report. The goal would be to make it advantageous for the seller such as a little cash in their pocket or less damage to their credit. As suggested, get an attorney and your original Realtor an hit it from all angles, sellers, bank, now & later.
Good luck, Ruth
