Hi Rachel:

I'm guessing you mean that the property is still listed on Trulia. If this is the case you probably can send an e-mail at this address:

If the problem is that Jefferson or Adams county has not made the change, you should talk to the folks at the county or call the title insurance company that closed the sale. The closer should have transmitted the information to the appropriate county.

Good answers below. That was my thought. Get a year's worth of coverage and negotiate a rebate when you leave the area. And as always, plans change, so it might be a good idea to have a year's coverage if you wind up staying here longer than you think.

Amy Hoak of Marketwatch covered this topic.

There are two main justifications for an appeal, William Fall, chief executive of the William Fall Group, a national appraisal company said: Either the appraiser neglected to consider similar, recently sold properties in the final value, or the appraiser made a significant error or omission in reporting characteristics of the property that could affect value.

But remember, to make the case that a home improvement should have been considered in the appraisal, it has to be shown to be a major capital improvement, such as a new kitchen. It's a good idea to save records of these upgrades as proof.

The important takeaway from this article is consumers have a right to appeal.

No, I personally haven't done this. But, I have been successful in making a case with the lender. As the market has become a seller's market along the Front Range, the lender might be impressed to hear that there is a lot of interest in a particular property. Bolstering confidence in the market may take a while. By summer's end, things could improve.

Good answer below by my distant relative, Susan. :) There is a good chance and there are lenders who specialize in working with these unique programs. I can get that information for you. You might consider purchasing a condo or townhome with the shortage of homes in your price range right now. The lender will also be able to check the status of the HOA and find out if the development is FHA approved in advance of making a commitment on a certain property. Good succes to you on your purchase. It certainly is better to purchase than to rent in most situations.

Hi Josiah,

Working with Ian R. Bennett at Mutual Security Mortgage was an answer to my husband and I. We had been working with at least 3 agents and other lenders who were full of it and trying to take advantage of my husband and I because we are young. However, I am not naive, I know a lot. Two years later, after finding Ian Bennett, he referred me to an agent who would take care of us. Janie Henry-Bolger with Keller-Williams is a fantastic agent and will go the distance to make sure you are getting a good deal. I am thankful for Ian and Janie being honest and willing to help people all agents and lenders should be.
Within a month of working with Janie Henry, we are ready to close on the 30th with only paying for our inspection and earnest money that we are expecting at closing. I never thought it could be so simple....until now. They are the best and most honest I've seen! If you're iffy with your credit and such, Ian can work wonders and get you in touch with the right people to help you, as well. All I can say is, Ian and'll be in perfect hands and in YOUR NEW HOME in no time. :)

I've had clients (buyers) that qualified for Section 8 and decided to buy their own house and qualified. They did loose their section 8 but their income to debt ratio still qualified them for an FHA loan.

I'm not sure about Denver but El Paso County (see links below) has a bond program and through the city housing authority there is a low interest loan program to assist with down payment.…

Lastly the state has a program too:

I don't know Denver's programs. Hopefully, someone will answer who does. If they don't at least these links will give you an idea of what loan programs are out there to help everyone achieve home ownership. You called our local ones and find out who can help in Denver.

Make sure you get good loan counseling before you go forward to purchase and definitely take the first time buyer classes offered and be weary of 'rent to own' schemes.

What are your chances? I'd say it can't hurt to try. You won't know until you get a hold of a lender who specializes in government back/sponsored first time home buyer programs and loans. Call your local housing authority to get references.

Good luck,
Susan Walker
