Upon further review of your property page, I see your property is in 'Public Record' status. This means your home is off the market and for informative purposes only. We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia.

That said, we do have ability to remove photos. The photos have been removed from display:

Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

There are several mortgage options that require as little as 3% down payment. You can even roll closing costs into most loans.

There is really no downside to an FHA loan, the rates are lower than conventional loans and they are easy to qualify for.

The rates are still low but have been rising so now is a good time to get a mortgage.

The best thing for you to do is to get a pre approval the you will know all your options.

If you would like help with this or have any questions you are welcome to get in touch with me.

Alan May answered:
Not a lawyer, but it seems to me that a "letter" could also be called a "contract".

As long as it's within the law, two parties in a signed agreement would be a contract... and that should be legal and binding.

She is under no obligation to give you a closing cost credit, so it's not unreasonable for her to "ask", if you'd agree to use her as your listing agent if you sell. As far as "how many years"... write in a limitation, if you feel it's an important part.

Sandra Scranton answered:
Hi Hanna! Where are you looking to rent? I see that you live in Caldwell. Are you looking in that area or are you flexible in location? How's your and your friend's credit score? Most landlords prefer credit of at least the mid 600's and up and an employment history which shows that you can afford your new place. Have you rented before? If so, good landlord references can be a huge help in securing your new apartment quickly.

I would be happy to help you find an apartment if you would give me a call at 973 224-3603 so we can discuss your search criteria in more detail. Or, you can e-mail me

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best regards, Sandi

Fairfield and Roseland who send to West Essex Regional are the best bang for your buck in Jersey as far as property taxes to school ranking. West Essex came in at 16th in the state and the 15 school districts ahead all pay more in property taxes. ... more

Robert and Sandra Bolcar answered:
Montclair has a good night life and the Caldwells a bit quieter up on the hill. The problem is finding a suitable 2 bedroom for under $1350 a month. Any pets? There are a few but most won't take pets. If you give me your email I can set you up on daily alerts so that you won't miss a god one. Good ones tend to go very quickly. When do you need occupancy? We are filling September 1st right now. Email me at sandra@thebolcarteam.con if you wish.

I would suggest that Marsha and Larry and also Ed give good advice here. But check the web site, NJ renters have significant rights, maybe more than other states. Safe to say, don't pay anyone unless you are sure it is going to the right party. You don't want to pay a lender and find you still owe the owner, etc. Contact Marsha below. She seeems to know what's up. ... more

Increased traffic will surely not add to value or enjoyment --- stay on it, and good idea to get the media on the bandwagon.

Good luck to you!

Ian A. Wolf answered:
The lender may put a policy in place at the owners expense and it may only cover the banks interest for replacement value. It is important to note that it may not protect the owners from liability. At all costs I would recommend making sure a full and proper liability and replacement insurance policy is in full on the home. Otherwise the owner could be exposing themselves to some huge potential disaster financially. If there is one thing i wouldn;t mess around with, it is the insurance. ... more

I stumbled on this thread tonight. I notice that GSMLS 2669920 is still active here on August 17, 2009 and listed with the notation this is a "Limited Service " broker from Hackensack, quiet a long distance from Caldwell so service would be naturally limited compared to a local broker and agent. I think Sloan the first Answerer was correct on all counts. My own broker is working with Trulia to have all its listings on the site. I believe it is up to the individual agent to manage the Open House schedule and posts, just as it would be on the MLS.
Lesson learned: always use a full service agent who knows how to market homes in today's environment, including Trulia, Zillow, Realtor,com and more.
As in most things, and as Popeye said, 'Yuz gets what ya' pays for."
I will apply my own expertise and see what your home will sell for today to a well qualified buyer.
