The lender will want to know what other income do you have that can be counted on or is that all there is? They will want to see how you plan to make payments for 20-30 years. Lenders sell these loans to FANNIE and they have rules that lenders must follow to be able to sell the loans and not have to tie up there banks money for 20-30 years. ... more

Why aren't you contacting a local realtor from a well respected agency? A realtor can give you up to date actives that conform to your criteria.

If you sell by owner you can NOT list your home here on Trulia, only real estate brokerages / listing agents who have properties listed on the multiple listings are able to list on Trulia.
May be you want to reconsider and list with a Realtor...?

Hi Liz,

This is the FHA's Official site for their owned homes, with links to other types of gov't owned properties.

Beware of imitators like, that is a private company site, not the FHA site.

Ron Thomas answered:
You might GOOGLE "tenants rights" and look for the entry about OBAMA's Bill of rights:
Basically, a tenant caught in a foreclosure, have the right to stay for 90 days after the foreclosure, or thru the lenght of their lease. The Lease is enforcable.

Look it up.

Good luck and may God bless

Lori - If you go ahead and select a real estate broker to serve as your buyer's agent and find one that will help you letting them know that you are interested in foreclosures they should be able to pull you the foreclosures as well as other homes that are of equal good sales prices. You should be able to find an agent that can work for the commission that the seller (lender/bank/owner) provides but then you will have one person that is helping you with all that you will need from the beginning of your search all the way through the closing/settlement. Interview a few to make sure that you select one in the community that is a good fit for you that is knowledgeable. I work with my clients in acquiring foreclosures in my community and yes I have found it is a bit more work and it is important to make sure you have an experienced real estate attorney that does foreclosures. Good luck to you with your home buying in Bluefield. I hope this is helpful.

Robin Silverberg answered:
I am assuming you obtained the appraisal as part of the mortgage process. Due to new guidelines in how appraisals are ordered, this kind of thing is becoming much more common. If there were comparable sales that closed within the past 6 months, within a 1 mile radius of the home you are purchasing, that were not used, you might have a chance challenging the appraisal. If that is not the case, then whatever anyone says will not make a difference. The appraiser has to review your contract of sale, so they know what you are paying. Unless there is some kind of error on the appraisal, where they did not adjust appropriately, had the wrong room count, square footage, or whatever, that would make the appraisal inaccurate, I doubt anything can be done. Even if the seller tries to go out and get a different appraisal, your bank is not going to use it. What are the details of your transaction? How much are you putting down? If this drastically effects your deal, you have the choice of coming up with extra money, or backing out of the deal if the seller does not want to reduce their price. ... more

Probally not a good place to buy a house. I live in Morgantown, WV but I lived in Bluefield until I was 23 years old and that just wasn't a good neighborhood to live in. Sorry
