I moved to Forest Glen in January 2017. I had previously lived in western Ohio. I was concerned about crime before we moved here (the price on our house seemed to good to be true). But I rolled the dice because the neighborhood is gorgeous, and the housing value is unbeatable. The gamble paid off. There is no crime. The neighborhood feels very safe. And none of my neighbors have expressed any concern about crime.

And, in case your wondering, Mill Creek Park is also very safe. I try to take my dog there three times a day, and I've never encountered any problems.

I worked for an office that would transfer the office calls to our cell phones. We would casually coordinate who was available, calling another agent when we got busy and passing it off. I loved it. Because I didn’t need to come in, I could be working on something else but not miss the calls when they came in. ... more

Did you have an inspection contingency? Is that how you found out about the repairs needed? If so you can follow the terms of the contract to notify them that you want a price reduction or cancelation of the contract. REO properties will not do any repairs so reduction or cancelation are the only two options. However if you have no contingencies then you are locked into the contract and with an REO it is in As-Is condition. Also read over the contract and the addendums to see what the terms are, it may help you find a resolution. ... more

The first step is to find a lender, determine what loan you what, how much you will need and how much you can spend. It really is the most important step, not only will it influence what properties you look at but your Realtor will need the information to write an offer and providing a pre-approval letter is the best way to show a seller you are serious and encourage dealing with you. ... more

I would suggest you continue to call Trulia and get to a supervisor. Not even sure if they have the ability to remove the pictures. Trulia pulls their date from MLS listings all over the country. Perhaps contacting your Realtor to determine the source of Trulia's information. If they remove the pictures, perhaps this change will be transmitted to Trulia. ... more

Hi Christina, You'd have to wait at the very minimum 12 months from your bankruptcy. IF the reason you filed the bankruptcy in the first place was due to a medical issue or an economical event ie loss of job and/or reduction of income, then you may possibly qualify 12 months out. It would require re-established credit (on credit). If the reason for the bankruptcy wasn't due to what's otherwise considered an "extenuating circumstance" then you'd need to wait at minimum two years from discharge before applying for a mortgage. If I can answer any add'l questions, I'd be happy to help. Best wishes otherwise, Kimberly Lawson, Licensed Mortgage Loan Originator. Contact and licensing information can be found on my profile. ... more

Good afternoon Frozen.lotus.blossom,

It is unlikely you could be approved for mortgage financing with that credit score at this time.
Beware of any mortgage professionals promising you an approval with such a low score. Wait on buying a home. I recommend you take the time to resolve your credit issues.

First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.

Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.

I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.

Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams. Find more from the FTC HERE.

The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.

Yeah that's the idea, I imagine he still owes money on his original loan for the house? So I'm not sure if there could be a lien placed on it like that or not. I'm going to look at it tonight but it was just a question I had for a little while now. ... more

Hello Gina,

You may want to also check into doing a short sale. Hopefully you can get the bank to short sale the previous property.

Hi Mariaspivak,

Thank you for using Trulia Voices! We are a search engine for residential real estate listings that are indexed from agent/broker web pages. Our service is free, and there is no charge to have listings posted on Trulia. However, at this time we do not add For Sale By Owner listings.

We are continually working on improvements and I encourage you to continue notifying us of ways we may improve our services to better meet your needs.

Becky Carr answered:
Education and Training are the most important for a new agent, so choose a company that can provide the best ongoing training and education....lots of in-house training and classes...and a company that will encourage you to take classes at your local REALTOR Association as well....not just for MCE or SAE, but for continuous learning. This business requires continuous learning and it never stops. Important things in the market change frequently and if you aren't on top of it, your business will suffer because it will be obvious that you aren't keeping up. This will likely be one of the larger companies in your area...a Coldwell Banker franchise (I am with Coldwell Banker APEX and they offer more training and education that you can possibly attend!...a GREAT company), or Keller Williams, or in my Dallas area, Ebby Halliday REALTORS.

I agree with everything that Denise says here! She summarizes what is important very well!
