Ditto what Amelia says. These computer generated valuations are in no way, shape, or form an appraisal. They are only a very general guide and they always give a wide range as to what the value might be. ... more

Christopher Fritts answered:
The sale of a home made to a family member or someone with whom the seller has had a previous relationship, at a price below the current market value. The difference between the actual sales price and the market value of the home is called the gift of equity. Most lenders allow the gift to count as a down payment on the home. A gift of equity requires a gift of equity letter that is signed by both the seller and the buyer. A gift of equity can have tax consequences, as it could impact the asset's cost basis for the new homeowner and have capital gains implications for the seller. You should seek legal and/or tax advice prior to doing a gift of equity. ... more

Please keep reaching out, because there is always someone able and willing to help you if at all possible... The seller typically pays the realtor fee for your realtor and if not, just disclose that to the person you can find to help you. There is always light and hope, and certainly good people waiting to get the opportunity to pay it forward and help you out! Best Wishes to you and your family. ... more

Raymond Whitby answered:
First, with bank owned homes there is a real chance it will be available again, so don't let go. I've sold hundreds++ for wells fargo and freddiemac, so believe me, until it is closed there is a chance to bid on it and get it again. Secondly, just call the dept of real estate and inquire about the agent and decide from there what you deem is best. Personally, that kind of behavior is bad for business, but on the other hand people sometimes lose loved ones or something very tragic could have happened in their lives and those individuals can be coping with tremendous hurt and pain by trying to work, but really just participating in work and going through the motions not really trying to hurt anyone. That being said, I would still be mad as a hornet if that happened to me.... Sorry to hear that, but stick in there with that house until you know its really done... ... more

You probably can, but the amount of problems and issues that can be immediately problematic to you are a definite negative that far outweighs any positive.

Mark LeMenager answered:
The issue we have with short term rental in Florida is that anything under 6 months is considered the same as a hotel stay and attracts tourist tax. That's why short term rental outside the true tourist areas is so hard to find. If you can commit to a minimum 7 months then you'll have a lot more choice. ... more

Cherise Horton answered:
If you are on section 8 then the Orlando Housing Authority may have a list of properties that are approved for section 8. I would look in Orlando classifieds ads for rental properties that accept section 8. You also may want to contact a Realtor who specializes in rental properties for both the landlord and renters. It is common that property owners who do rent to section 8 renters do not typically retain or hire a Realtor they normally just list online on Craig's List or in the local news paper. Always do your homework and make sure you read the rental agreement and its entirety. I hope this helps! Good luck in your search. ... more
