Trulia is an agent only platform at this time, all listings must be through a broker.

Cash buyers who are well experienced with real estate transactions will go direct to the listing agent to get the best deal, For anyone who is not an expert, they should have an agent looking out for their best interests. Having a buyer broker guide you and assist you is a must. ... more

At this particular crossroads, you simply get the "unknowns" out of the way and go see a credit repair specialist, and unfortunately that's like finding a tire shop on broadway in Phoenix sometimes.... This website your on is a great way to get referrals from companies that have been tried and tested... Really, credit repair has a few different angles to take in regards to getting a credit score up, I would just go with the company that is recommended most and has a past history of success.

This REALTOR should know he's up the creek without a paddle. If he didn't have you sign a BBA, his loss. He should have done so.

That address does not exist in the MLS or Tax database. Perhaps you mistyped the address. It would also be helpful if you provided an actual question about an address.

Feel free to contact me. Your neighborhood on Ivanhoe is one I pass every morning and evening to and from work and, thus, am extremely capable of being a very good information source for you as well as an excellent REALTOR. We will need to talk about financing, since some condo communities may not allow for all types of financing. If you decide that Tucson is a better fit, I have a very good reference that I can give to you. I have had several clients use my Tucson connection and they have all been very happy. He is a Broker like myself and just sold his company to a major franchise. ... more

Matt and Bill both gave you good answers below as well as some of the others. Your situation seems reasonable given the limited information in this format.

Would you like to see what $125,000 will buy you as well while we work in the loan? We could build you a custom search/site with your exact search requirements for the house. ... more

Dear Always:

Not sure what your goal is to answer your question fully. Are you concerned about your bank or your renter? If you will be a few days late, call the bank and let them know as soon as possible.

By the way the Arizona Department of Housing has Federal Stimulus Funds to use to keep people in their homes and avoid forelcosure. To learn more:

For more information on a short sale of your home in Arizona and a copy of the State of Arizona Short Sale Advisory, which reviews short sales, loan modifications and other options:

If you have other questions feel free to ask.

Tuscany is a very nice subdivision. Train tracks and traffic is always a consideration. In this case the traffic noise would probably be of greater concern than the train. The tracks that run north and south along Arizona are low use tracks. I always bring traffic noise, train noise and high tension power lines to the attention of my buyers. Good luck in your home search. If you have any other questions I can be reached at 480 620-2024. ... more

Bill Smith answered:
I agree with the last answer and you may work yourself into a bad posititon. In addition to the 1st time credit, you need the seller to have legal coverage for you: possession and insurance coverage for example. Best advice it to talk to your lender and accountant. I believe they will both want you to move in at close of escrow and not later.
I'm licensed in Az and Ca but this is a tax issue as much as a real estate question.

Paul is right, except for the commission rebate. If a full-service realtor is willing to assist you and offer a commission rebate, you'd be foolish to not partake.....especially a broker who has 30-years experience in the's a "no-brainer."
