To start, I would like to note that the Trulia estimate is an estimate derived from our proprietary algorithm. Our estimates use a ton of info, including recent sales of similar homes and home facts like number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, and more to provide insight into what a home is worth. This data is compiled from public records and other sources for counties across the US. Please know that we do not intend for the estimate to replace a comparative market analysis as they can take into account market intricacies that the Trulia Estimate cannot. The Trulia Estimate is really meant to be a starting point in determining a home’s value and is not an official appraisal. To learn more about the Trulia estimate, we encourage our users to follow this link:

Please also note that we do not directly edit or remove Trulia estimates. While we monitor customer feedback for systematic issues with the algorithm, we do not change individual estimates in response to customer feedback. We understand however, that some homes may be unique in ways that are not well captured by existing data. To provide more information on your estimate, we encourage you to claim your home and update its facts if you notice any information is outdated.

Updates to your home facts will be factored into your home's Trulia estimate, however, if the updates are not significant enough to impact the home's value, your estimate may not change.

If you're looking for a precise value for your home, we recommend you talk to a real estate professional.

One thing to consider is that when you do put your home on the market, the Trulia estimate will disappear as it is a feature only available for off market properties.

Thank you for suing Trulia!

The lowest score that some lenders will consider is 580, but not many will. As you improve your scores your options will expand. Somewhere between 620 and 640 your options improve more.
You should know that it takes more than a score. Income, assets, job security, history are all factors a lender will consider.
I would encourage you to talk to some lenders. I know one that assists with credit repair and helps people qualify sooner than they would on their own.

One thing I *would* say about Crooks though, is that you do have to watch the traffic down around that area, particularly with young children. It can get a little congested later in the day, when people are coming home from work (between 4 and 6). There is a nice park within walking distance, though. Down by the old Pinecrest Elementary School. I think it's called the Primavera center now.... Lots of grass and shade trees, and plenty of room for kids to run around. Great hill for sledding in the winter, too... ... more

Well, assuming the properties you own are in you name, your parents name or jointly and you have a mortgage on them, i don't think you can change the ownership of the property to the corporation, unless of course you pay off the mortgage(s).

A sub-"s" corp. or LLC avoids double taxation. And you can complete/file for the corporation yourself or use one of the services like legal zoom to help you file if you want to save money compared to what an attorney will charge. But using an attorney is easier and i think worth the fee they charge.

You need the services of a professional, a CPA or tax attorney. I recommend a tax attorney that can advise you or the correct corporate structure for you and can then handle setting up the corp. or LLC.

good luck
