I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I have created a request regarding the removal of the erroneous foreclosure information for your home on Zillow.

Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Be very careful with auctions. Make sure you understand what fees will be charged to you (sometimes a buyer's premium and all settlement costs) and what type of deed you will be given at the time of settlement. Also, I've never been a fan of purchasing a home sight unseen. I'd recommend that you only consider bidding on a property that you have physically toured as well on which you have done your "due diligence."

Go to auction websites like and read EVERY bit of helpful information they provide. They have a "help" section that can walk you through some basics of bidding on and buying auction properties.

Good Luck.

I feel badly this has happened to you. Suffice it to say some people are jerks! Perhaps you have written this needing to vent and aren't asking for advice, but in case the latter is true - just move. The 27th is tomorrow, don't prolong the process. Give to her what belongs to her and leave the house and her memory where it belongs - in the past!

Good luck!

If the property is auctioned for more than the loan balance, plus all the fees the bank has incurred to get this far, then it's possible you'll get some of the profits. Foreclosure is covered in your loan documents, read your note to find out the exact details. ... more

You have to go to the courthouse schedule - that's where the auction will be held.

Dan Tabit answered:
Probably not. Since you posted form Foreclosures you probably saw a house posted by RealtyTrac. They don't sell homes, they sell subscriptions to largely useless information you can get for free from a great local agent.
Find an agent to work with and they can show you all the available inventory.

I'm, Jocelyn Rolle, your local Realtor. I would be honored to assist you with all your real estate needs. I will ask a few questions to set up a search for you. How many bedrooms and baths would you like? Are you open to fixer-uppers? What are your must-haves for the property? What are your desired items in a property? What are your deal-breakers in a property? What is your desired price range for properties in the 21209 areas? What is your maximum price range?
Please provide your name, main contact number and email along with the best time to contact you. Feel free to contact me by email at or phone at (443) 379_4582. I hope to hear from you within the near future. Thank you and have a safe and wonderful day!

Jim Simms answered:
In my state you don’t get to choose who the lender is going to sue in a foreclosure, they don’t even ask. They just file against anyone associated with the property, doesn’t matter if the spouse isn’t on title, they will be named as well in order to clean up the title.

I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.

I would be glad to help you with your search in those areas. I have recently sold homes in Hampstead and its a great area. You can get a lot of house for the price. It would be better if we talked live so that I can get some more information from you so that we can refine your search to meet your criteria.

Robert Mcgee answered:
The Orchards is a small single family neighborhood laid out in 1936 just west of Charles Street and south of Lake Avenue. It was developed by Douglas H. Gordon, Jr. a prominent Baltimorean who served in the legislature and for a time President of St. Johns College in Annapolis. Like Homeland it is architecturally restricted and has homes of similar vintage and style. The Bryn Mahr school is adjacent.

Tom answered:
Over a year ago starting September 18, 2010 I received repeated phone calls from one of your associates by the name of Steve Szydlowski, a legal Assistant, regarding my home modification. He assured me that you are professionals, that home modifications will be done without any problems, and that your professional negotiators know how to talk to the bank. After receiving so many nice phone calls during that week, I signed a contract. Soon after that, the check was cashed, and then calls from your firm ceased. My phone calls were NOT returned and my emails were NOT responded to. I did NOT receive any advice from your law firm.
All that was done was simply the mailing of forms to my bank, which I could have done myself.
Your negotiator, Mrs. Jacqueline Zenon was extremely unprofessional and rude. She had no knowledge of modification laws. During the phone conversation with my bank, she hung up on Wells Fargo representative Mrs. Sheri Smith.
I am appalled by the blatant incompetence, negligence, and mistreatment that your firm has shown. I am demanding a complete and full refund of all costs for this company’s failure to provide me the services that it promised.
Should you refuse my demand, I will take this to court. I will submit claims against this firm to the State Attorney’s office, the Florida Bar Association, and the Better Business Bureau. I will also contact the local media and expose others to the wrongdoings of this firm throughout internet sites and social media.
