You need to go to the tax assessor's office / website for the county the home is located in. Usually the exact address will be sufficient. If you are in NYC, this does not work for co-op and condo buildings. ... more

Have you served in the military? If yes, then you qualify for VA loans which are 0 down payment. If you never served in the military, try Rockland County to see if they have down payment assistance for buyers. You will need to meet their income and credit qualifications.

Otherwise you need to have at least 3.5% down payment for an FHA loan. If you don't have any savings for a down payment + cash to pay closing costs, then you cannot buy a house.

You should look into buying a co-op or condo since they are cheaper than a house.

Lazer Milstein answered:
Realty fee? Are you referring to a commission??

Was there a licensed real estate agent involved??

Unless there is an agent involved, there should be NO reality commission / fee.


If it is just between you and a buyer who came directly to you, there should not be any realty commission.

If an agent WAS involved it would depend on if any agreements were made - orally or in writing by the owner or the buyer.

Hello Paul,

Trulia and Zillow estimates is computerized and goes by distance. They don't take into account for location, size, amenities, or renovations.

The estimates can be way off or can be close to the price of the home, but to know true value, a realtor can do a CMA which is a comparative market analysis that shows homes that are comparable to yours thats sold in the last 6 months.

If you need a CMA, please contact me at 845-664-2144 or danielle.russodivito@randrealty.com

Hi Elisa,

I hope you have bought a townhouse by now. I know you were going to buy one that I had listed, but you needed to wait until January, 2013 which was too long for my clients. Still -- to answer your question. My client bought a co-op in Bon Aire and was told she could have one indoor cat when she went for the interview. As far as buying being better than renting, if you have a pet you are much better off buying, because many home owners and condo owners do not allow pets when they put their homes on the market for rent. I hope this helps.

Take care,

Hi Allan,

As Trulia.com is a Consumer-advocacy website, I often answer questions within my purview to provide relevant information to other consumers who may be visiting Trulia.com today for the first time. If my answer was time-sensitive---such as discussing current interest rates or a specific loan program---then I could see your point. But as this question might pertain to another consumer who is thinking about buying a foreclosure property in the Monsey (or surrounding areas) TODAY, then I feel my answer is timely enough.

Bill Eckler answered:
Lauren,

As others have noted, it's unclear that this will even be treated as a short sale by your lender. Before getting too far into this and becoming disappointed, I would recommend the importance of gathering additional information.

1. Is the owner's lender willing to work with them on a short sale?

2. Have they begun the application process?

3. Where is the seller in the "short sale" process?

4. Are they being supported by an attorney in this process?

There is a big "red flag" here....owing $170 and asking $230 doesn't have the earmarks of a short sale.

Proceed with caution.

Bill

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
I am not sure what you mean by 'legitimate'. It sounds as though your frustration may be with what I call 'lis pendens lists'. These are listings of all the homes for which the bank has filed the initial court paperwork, either a Notice of Default or a Lis Pendens (translated as pending litigation) filing. The lists are legitimate, the homes are in the early stages of foreclosure, or have been foreclosed on, but that does not mean they are available for purchase. When a loan becomes delinquent, depending on the State you live in, the foreclosure process can take a very, very long time. And the banks are dragging their feet as well. Then, once the property IS foreclosed on, you will have to wait for the bank to list the home with a realtor because they aren't going to talk directly to potential buyers.

Long winded way of saying, find a realtor who is familiar with short sales and foreclosures and work with them. Look for the SFR designation, which stands for Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource. It's really the only way to get reliable information on short sales and foreclosed homes that are available to buyers.

Maureen McEnroe answered:
Hi Judy,

The other posters are correct a mortgage broker is a facilitator. The broker does not actually make the loan but they, on your behalf, contact several banks to try to get you the best mortgage terms and rates available for a purchaser with your credit score and your financial situation. They save you the tine consuming step of calling several banks. I am a broker with Joyce Realty and we are also a full service real estate company. We have Joyce Financial --a Mortgage Broker as well. If you want to speak to one of our financial experts feel free to call me at 914-588-1873.

Good luck with your purchase.
